 Early life and education

 Born Makhdum Jalal Uddin bin Mohammad, he was later known as Sheikhul Masheikh Hazrat Shah Jalal al-Mujarrad (the last name means "the bachelor", on account of his celibacy).

Hazrat Shah Jalal's date and place of birth is unclear. Various traditions and historical documents differ regarding this. However, a number of scholars claim that he was born in 1271 in Konya, Turkey, and later moved to Yemen either as a child or adult, while others contest he was born in Yemen.

He was the son of a Muslim cleric, who was a follower of the great Sufi saint and Persian poet, Hazrat Jalaluddin Mohammad Rumi.

However, Hazrat Shah Jalal lost his parents in his childhood and was brought up by his maternal uncle, Hazrat Syed Ahmed Kabir(R.A), who was a very pious man.

 Hazrat Shah Jalal was educated and raised in Makka by the same uncle. He excelled in his studies and soon became a Hafiz (one who memorises the Holy Qur’an) and was proficient in Islamic theology.

 Hazrat Shah Jalal was a disciple of Sayyid Ahmad Yesvi. He achieved Kamaliyat (spiritual perfection) after 30 years of study and meditation.
