HIS FAMILY: His family originally came from Tirmiz. His forefathers migrated from Tirmiz and went to JA’landhar. His father Hazrat Meer Sayyid Abu Saeed then journeyed from there to Kalpi Shareef and made it his home. It is for this reason, that they are known as Tirmizi Sayyids. [Zia-e-Muhammadi]

Towards the end of his physical life, he kept fast daily (except for the days when fasting is disallowed) for twenty-six years. When he used to take the Name of Allah, then he did so with such emotion, that those who heard him entered a spiritual condition. He spent most of his time amongst the poor and the knowledgeable. He always lived a very humble and simple life. He never showed respect to Kings who came to visit him

SHEIKH MEER ABUL ULAA AHRAARI : Once, Hazrat Muhammad Kalpwi dreamt that Hazrat Khaja Naqsh Banda commanded him to go to Akbarabaad (Agra) as there was a very great Sheikh of the Silsila present there. When Hazrat woke from his sleep, he immediately made the necessary arrangements, and journeyed to Akbarabaad. However, Hazrat Khaja Naqsh Banda had not informed him of the name of the Saint in his dream, so when arrived in Akbarabaad, he enquired about who were the great Masha’ikh of the city. He was informed that there were two great personalities. One was Hazrat Meer Nu’man who was the Khalifa of Sheikh Ahmad Sirhindi. and the other was Hazrat Meer Abu Ulaa Ahraari . He asked to be taken to Hazrat Nu’man, but the chariot bearers brought him to Hazrat Abu Ulaa Again he said that he wanted to visit Sayyidi Nu’man, but again they found themselves outside the Khanqah of Hazrat Abu Ulaa. When this happened a few times, Hazrat disembarked from the chariot and entered the Khanqah.
Hazrat Abu Ulaa Ahraari was seated in the courtyard and on seeing Hazrat Muhammad Kalpwi he announced the Takbeer once. He then held the hand of Hazrat Muhammad Kalpwi and announced the  Takbeer again. This caused a complete change in the heart of the Sheikh. He remained in the Khidmat of Hazrat Abu Ulaa for a few months, and when he was about to leave, Hazrat Abul Ulaa blessed him with Khilafat in the Qaaderi, Chishti, Naqshabandi, Madariyah and Abul Ulaaiyah Silsila’s. He also blessed him with the Tasbeeh of Hazrat Baha’udeen Naqshbandi as a gift. He returned home, and then after ten years, he
visited Hazrat Abul Ulaa Ahraari for four months

should also follow my way

Hazrat Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaaz .(RadiaAllahu anhu) then blessed him with the faiz of the Silsila-e-Chisht. After this, he journeyed to Ajmer Shareef annually to make Ziyaarat of Mazaar Shareef of Hazrat Khwaja Ghareeb Nawaaz .

HIS KARAAMATS: Hazrat Sheikh was also a very great Saahib-e-Karaamat. There was a very sinful person who often frequented the gatherings of Sufis. He then decided to visit Kalpi Shareef. He intended
that he would go to Hazrat Meer Muhammad Kalpwi . and if Hazrat’s first sight upon him causes a special feeling in him, then he would stop sinning and repent sincerely and if there was no special feeling, the he had
decided that he would openly consume alcohol. When he came to Kalpi Shareef, the Sheikh placed his sight on him once, and it caused him to fall down unconscious. He remained unconscious for a while When he re-gained consciousness, he tore off his collar (in spiritual bliss) and joined the Faqeers. He immediately divorced himself from the physical world. Hazrat could foresee his condition, and sent him a beautiful cloak
with one of his Khaadims. The man refused to accept it out of humility.  

Hazrat finally took the cloak personally to him and said, “It is because of my sight, that you have become amongst those who are blessed. You must  tus accept that which I am giving you. How do you know what is  in it?

The man put on the cloak and immediately spiritual secrets were unveiled to him. He remained in Kalpi Shareef and became a Khaadim of The Sheikh
