Maulana Qasmi was born in 1937. After receiving the elementary education in local madrasa, he joined Darul Uloom Deoband where he completed his Almiyat course.
He was a close student of Maulana Fakhruddin Muradabadi. Apart from being a perfect teacher and hadith scholar, he was also an erudite jurist. He had deep relationship with late Qazi Mujahidul Islam Qasmi. Qazi sahib gave paramount importance to his juristic opinion. He therefore came to be kown as the Faqih-e-Millat (the jurist of the Muslim community).
