Having been born and brought up in spiritual family and descendent of Shah Moulvi Mohammad Arif, I have learnt the techniques and knowledge of herbs from my childhood. This interest stimulated me to go for a Unani graduation course and later M.D. in Unani Medicine and a Ph.D. degree in Ayurveda as well. In 2003 I established Holistic Health Care & Research Organization (HHCRO) organization for the health care and research services in Mumbai, India.
My family roots go back in time to a well known and respected family of Peerzadas of Ambehta in Saharanpur district of northern India. This family descends from Hazrat Shah Abul Ma’ali (1552–1615), a great spiritual Sufi saint of that time. Our family has always been very generous for spiritual, social and educational upliftment of the society. Shah Moulvi Mohammad Arif (from 8th descendent family of Hazrat Shah Abul Ma’ali) was a spiritual person and great philanthropist of his region. He had good relations with Sir Syed, and he donated and collected large funds for the establishment of Muhammadan Anglo-Oriental College, that is now Aligarh Muslim University, as one of the biggest residential institution in India. Shah Arif’s son was Shah Khaleel Ahmed who worked as sub overseer in different regions of India during early 19th century. He was a great adventurist, wildlife and nature lover person.
