Saiyad Shah Abdullah Kirmani was born in Kirman,Iran. His date of birth is not known. At a young age he left Kirman and came to India where he visited Muslim saint Hazrat Makhdoom Shah Arzani.
Hazrat Makhdoom Shah Arzani directed him to go to Bengal and gave him a toothpick of chambeli wood. He told him to stay at the place where the toothpick became fresh and green. He arrived in Birbum and stayed at Bargaon, where he performed several miracles (karamat) but the toothpick remained unchanged. He then moved on to Khustigiri. There one morning he found the toothpick to have become fresh and green. He planted it and it soon became a large tree. Shah Abdullah is specially renowned for his power over serpents.
Khustigiri Dargah Sharif is believed to be a place of learning, getting peace of mind, and becoming free from diseases and mental distress. This sacred place has been established about 500 years ago for giving service to the mankind by the order of his spiritual master Hazrat Makhdoom Shah Arzani. The beautiful environment draws the minds of all irrespective of race, caste, creed and religion. The Sufi saint Hazrat Abdullah Kermani (in short Kermani Baba) has established Khankah, Jama Masjid, Madrasah, Langor Khana, Atithi Shala, Nahabat Khana, Library, Charitable dispensary etc. for the service to the mankind.
