Hazrat Ala started his mission of guidance on return from Hajj in 1308 A.H provision for everything needed for the successful conduct of this mission was made by Allah himself by his sheer grace and mercy. Accomplished scholars for example, were spontaneously attracted to Golra to assist Hadrat in the task of teaching, and became his life-long devotees and associates.

In keeping Hadrats standing as a great scholar and lover of learning, and in line with the time-honoured tradition of Sufi shrines, a well-staffed Madrassah (school) imparting free religious education up to an advanced stage is still running till this day. The Madrassah started with Hadrat himself as its principal teacher. Before long, many other distinguished scholars and teachers arrived from various placed, not only to share the teaching work with Hadrat, but also to themselves benefit from a scholar and spiritual luminary of Hadrats eminence. Some of them later settled down permanently and spent the rest of their lives in Golra.

Maulana Ghazi arrived at Golra sharif after resigning from Madrasah Soultiya at Makah Mukarama and assumed the office of principal of the Jamia Ghousia at Golra sharif. The subjects of the Quranic commentary, hadith and tasuffuw were taught by hazrat himself. Qari Abdul Rahman of Jaunpur was a master of the art of tajweed. He joined the Jamia to take charge, besides tarweed the correspondence and of leading the five congregational prayers in Golra sharif masjid. He pioneered the teaching of Qirat in this region. Mulana Ali bandi, Mulana Meer Abdullah of makkhan Syed chanan shah Jaabah and mulana Mahboob Aalam of Hazara, all these gentlemen were amongst the first to join this institution of religious and spiritual education. These early students took up different task in connection to its development and running. Besides preforming their teaching duties they worked along with their students as manual labour in the construction of the masjid and other buildings of the complex. They also helped in digging a deep well in the stony soil to serve as a source of water supply for drinking as well as construction purposes.

The outstanding examples of this were Maulana Muhammad Ghazi and Maulana Mahboob Aalam. Under the personal supervision of Hadrats son and successor, Hadrat Babu ji, the Madrassah developed into a regular educational institution whose graduates started teaching at other places and schools. The Madrassah specializes in Dars-e-Nizami, i.e., the Nizami curriculum, which was pioneered in the Sub-continent by Maulana Nizam uddin Siyalvi over two centuries ago and which now ranks among the Sub-continents premier Islamic theological curricula. Lately, general subjects such as history, geography, mathematics etc. have also been added to the curriculum so as to produce well-rounded alumni.

After the demise of Babu ji Baray Lala ji supervised the Madrassah and supervised amendments and refurbishments were made to the Madrassah to update it. And supervision of, the education of the Holy Quran, both reading and learning by heart, uttering of letters with reference to the organs of speech i.e. lips tongue, teeth, throat, and that of Dars-e-Nizami, is being imparted in Jamia Ghousia Mehria, Golra Sharif. After getting education from Jamia Ghousia Mehria, Ulama are playing an important role by imparting education and preaching of the religion within the homeland and as well as in foreign countries.

During the lifetime of Baray Lala ji the Principle of the Madrassah,sharif was Maulana Faiz Ahmad, a scholar of considerable contemporary eminence, the compiler of Hadrat’s authentic Urdu-language biography, Mehre-Munir. Mufti Faiz Ahmad Faiz had

also rendered valuable service in reviewing Hadrat’s own various writings and getting them re-published in the past few years.

Furthermore, in his sermons during Friday prayers, in his fatawa or rulings on various religious issues, and on other appropriate occasions, the Maulana took every opportunity to project as clearly as possible the viewpoint of the Golra shrine in the light of the Qur’an and the Sunnah, and as embodied in the Fiqh-e-Hanfi, or the jurisprudence school of Imam Abu Hanifah) and in Hadrat Mehr Ali Shah’s various writings. These pronouncements receive a great deal of attention in the country’s scholarly circles. Mufti Faiz Ahmed Faiz sahib also had the privilege to translate some or Hazrat Pir syed Mehr Ali shah’s into Urdu. In 1989 when Qibla Baray all ji passed away mufti sahib had the hour of leading the funeral prayer.
