Hadhrat Khwaja Muhammad Saeed Sirhindi (1005-1070 AH) was the second son of the Great Mujaddid, Imam Rabbani Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi (971-1034 AH).
He was born in the month of Sha’bān 1005 AH (March/April 1597). His great father was 34 years old when he was born. He was a walī (Islamic saint) by birth. Imam Rabbani says:
My son Muhammad Saeed was just four or five years old when he became sick. While being very weak due to that illness, he was once asked: “What do you want?” He replied: “I want Khwājā sāhib.” (Khwājā Muhammad Bāqī Billāh, the Sufi master of Imam Rabbani).
He graduated from the Islamic education and other courses taught in those times at an age of 17. His teachers included his noble father, his elder brother Khwaja Muhammad Sādiq, and Shaykh Tāhir Lāhori. He was a great scholar. His father Imam Rabbani would often appoint him for solving hard issues in Fiqh that required research.
He was spiritually trained in the Sufi path by his noble father, and reached the highest stages of wilāyah (sainthood). His karāmāt (miracles) were many.
His Maktubat (letters) were collected by his son Maulana Muhammad Farrukh. The collection includes one hundred letters, written most in Farsi with a few in Arabic. The first two letters are addressed to his noble father Imam Rabbani Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi. These letters were first published in 1385 AH (1965) by Maktabah Hakim Saifi, Lahore (Pakistan).
Khwaja Muhammad Saeed had eight sons, two of them (third and fifth) were more well known as great Islamic scholars and authors of many books.
- Shāh Abdullāh Sirhindī
- Shaykh Lutfullāh Muhammad Sirhindī
- Shaykh Muhammad Farrukh Sirhindī, 1038-1121 AH, buried in Sirhind. He was a great Islamic scholar, author and annotator of classical Islamic texts. Mughal emperor Aurangzeb learned Sahih al-Bukhari from him.
- Shaykh Sa’d ad-Din Muhammad Sirhindī
- Shaykh Abdul Ahad Wahdat Sirhindī, alias Shāh Gul, 1050-1127 AH, buried in Sirhind. He was a great poet and author of about 40 books some of which are published.

Mughal emperor Aurangzeb was a great lover of the Mujaddidi family and a true spiritual seeker. He requested Khwaja Muhammad Saeed to live with him in Delhi so he could receive spiritual training and blessings from him. Hazrat Khwaja lived for quite a time in Delhi. Later, he became ill and was treated by royal doctors but could not recover. He traveled back to Sirhind, but passed away to his Lord during the journey. He passed away on 27 Jamādā al-Thānī 1070 AH (8/9 March 1660). He was brought to Sirhind and buried in the tomb of his noble father, the great Mujaddid, Shaykh Ahmad Sirhindi.
His noble deputies who were trained in the Sufi Path by him and granted deputyship, include the following:
- His son Hadhrat Mawlana Muhammad Farrukh Sirhindi (1038-1122 AH)
- His son Hadhrat Shaykh Sa’d ad-Din Muhammad Sirhindi (d. 9 Ramadan 1105 AH)
- His son Hadhrat Shaykh Abd al-Ahad Wahdat Sirhindi alias Shah Gul (1050-1127 AH)
May Allah be well pleased with this sublime family of Sufi masters.
