The only religion that he spread and always talked about was to serve the goodness of humanity and humility was always the core of his teachings. He said that anyone can achieve the eternal truth through love and dedication and he also preached the monotheistic image of god. He left the earthly abode in the year 1319 at his birthplace, Hijri.
