His life was the mirror of the following hadith of Huzur Muhmmad (sallallahu alahi wasallam) :
أكمل المؤمنين إيماناً أحسنهم خلقاً
“The Most Perfect Man In His Faith Among Believers Is One Whose Behavior Is Most Excellent”

ٱلرَّحْمَـٰنُ فَسْـَٔلْ بِهِ خَبِيرًۭا
It means – Ask about him (Allah) one well informed(Waliullah).
Sufiyan Tafseer- Allah Ka Pata Allah Walon Se Puch (Bekhabar Uska Haal Nahi Jante)
