Abdul Quddus Hanafi Ghaznavi Chishti Gangohi (1456–1537) bin Shaykh Muhammad Ismail bin Shaykh Safi al-din, was born in Rudauli,now in Faizabad India.

He was a Sufi poet and leading Chisti shaykh.[1] He was among the most prominent Sufi Shaykhs of the Sabiri branch of the Chishti silsila.[2]

In his early youth, ‘Abd al-Quddus wrote a treatise, Rushd-nama (The Book of Piety), that seeks to reconcile the teachings of Gorakh-nath with Chishti Sufism.[3]

In 1491 he moved to Shahbad in Haryana.[citation needed] Thirty years later, he moved to Gangoh (Saharanpur district), attracted by the reputation of Shaikh Ahmad Abdul Haqq.[4]

Works[edit]

One of Abdul Quddus' notable works was his Rushanama, which drew parallels between Sufi practices and Gorakshanath yogic philosophy.[5]
