Sheikh Khwaja Abdullah Ansari was born in Herat, in western Afghanistan. Although his father was a shopkeeper, Ansari was well educated in traditional subjects, such as law and hadith, as well as becoming a revered authority on Islamic mysticism and philosophy. He shunned the company of the wealthy and powerful in favor of sharing his wisdom among the common people. His writings and collected sayings continue to inspire Sufis and seekers today. Sheikh Ansari's tomb in Herat is a place of pilgrimage for thousands of Sufis and the faithful every year.
