During the rule of Nizam of Hyderabad, a flood occurred on 28 September 1908 on the River Musi. Hyderabadi was one of the 150 people who saved their lives by hanging on to the branches of a tamarind tree. He later wrote a poem "Qayamat-e-Soghra" (The Minor Doomsday) detailing his experience. To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the tragedy, Satyanarayana Danish recited this poem.
The Warsi Brothers, an Indian Qawwali musical group, regularly recited his poems in their Qawali in various countries
