Recognized and respected as a great Sufi master, Hazrat Shah Manzoor Alam has countless disciples in India.

He was born in 1935 into a traditional family in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh. In 1951, when he was 15 years old, he met his first Pir (guru): Hazrat Baba Husaini Shah, from Jajmau (Kanpur), beginning then his spiritual practices. He met his second Pir in 1973: Hazrat Baba Mouj Shah. In 1978, he set up his Khankah (Ashram) in Kanpur, where he still lives today.

He has published a series of five books of his own Sufi poems, as well as two other books, one with Sufi philosophy teachings and another recounting the lives of Sufi fakirs. Six books from the 15-volume collection explaining the Masnavi Sharif, by Hazrat Roomi, have also been published.
