Muhammad al-Masum was the son of Shaikh Ahmad al-Faruqi. He succeeded his father in the year 1624 AD. Muhammad al-Masum was said to be a born saint. At the age of three years, he expressed Oneness by saying, 'I am the earth, I am the heavens, and I am God... I am this, I am that.' He memorized the Holy Quran
in three months at the age of six, as his learning was through his heart and he reached the highest state of the knowledge of Sharacat and Aqaqat. Once he said to his father that he was seeing himself as a life that is moving in every atom of this universe, which is taking light from it as the earth takes light from the sun. His father realised that Muhammad al-Masum (Masum Raza) was going to be the Qutub (Spiritual Pole) of his time.
Muhammad al-Masum was close to God from the very beginning, and every episode in his life drew him closer to the Almighty. He once revealed that when he was in Hajj, he saw the Kaaba hugging and kissing him with great compassion and emotion. He saw lights and blessings coming out of himself, which increased so much that it filled up all the universes and they entered every atom of these universes. Then all these atoms were drawn back to the love of the Essence of the Kaaba. Muhammad al-Masum said that he continued his journey to visit the Madinat il-Munawwarah, the City of the Prophet Muhammad
. When he went to visit him at his tomb and directed his face towards him, he saw the Prophet coming out of his grave, and he hugged and kissed him.
It was the miraculous and blessed life of the saint which garnered him many followers. The Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb
was his disciple. He used to come to attend his spiritual assemblies (Satsang) and used to sit wherever he found a place. Besides, it is said that Aurangzeb used to put his requests in writing before Muhammad Masum.
