Hazrat Syed Hashimpeer (R.A) who represents the glorious tradition of Qadri-Shuttari Sufi order came to Bijapur on specific instructions from the Prophet of Islam. He was brought up in a highly scholastic atmosphere under the influence of Hazrat Sayedna Vajhuddin Hussaini Gujrati, popularly known as Haider Ali Sani. It was during the rule of Ibrahim Adil Shah-II when Hazrath Hashimpeer arrived in Bijapur and it was his influence on the Adil Shahi dynasty that transformed the dynasty, which was following Un-Islamic and Heretic practices.
Hazrat Syed Hashimpeer (R.A) was born in 1576-77 in the family of a wealthy judge of Ahemdabad, Qazi Burhan al-Din, whose holdings included a village in’am worth Rs. 4,000. At a very early point in his life Hazrat Syed Hashimpeer (R.A) became a mureed of the famous Shattari mystic Hazrat Wajih al-Din ‘Alawi (R.A.). But Hazrat Wajih al-Din (R.A.) died when Hazrat Syed Hashim peer (R.A) was only fourteen years of age, and thereafter the boy fell under the spiritual discipleship of one of Hazrat Wajih al-Din’s older mureed’s, Hazrat Shah ‘Adb Allah Husseini. From this time Hazrat Syed Hashimpeer (R.A), in the best of earlier Shattari traditions, seems to have become increasingly ascetic. When his father died in 1605-06 he gave away the family fortune including the village in in’am, and at some time after that he left Ahemdabad, inexplicably, for Bijapur.
