He was ordained as Cherag in the Universal Worship by Murshida Fatima in 1980 and was honored with the title of Sheikh by Murshid Wali Ali in 1989. Allaudin produces Sufi inspired CDs including his most recent release Vision, Bewilderment and Love. He also plays and records with a Grammy-awarded children’s group.
