Mohammad 'Aref San'at was born around 1215/1800 in India in the town of Shikarpur, of a Punjabi family. He worked as a schoolteacher but later took up the family trade of tailoring and tent-making. He was a popular and outgoing person, but ended his life (in 1266/1849) in seclusion in protest against British oppression.

Besides his diwan, he also composed a mathnawi on the famous story of the conversation between Jesus and the skull of the sultan of Baghdad.
