    All I know is that he travelled the islamic world, rightfully criticised everyone, was imprisoned by daoud khan, tortured in prison (electrocuted, whipped, teeth crushed, beard pulled out one hair at a time), continuing to write books in prison and finally being killed by the khalqis when they came to power.

    I visited the Wikipedia article:

    After a spiritual incident at the end of his ascetic practices, he began wandering again and wound up in Mazari Sharif. Upon arriving in the city, Mawlana Faizani was overcome by the overt materialism of the elite and their unIslamic practices, based more upon tribalism and traditional power structures than upon brotherhood and religious sentiment. In response, Mawlana Faizani began preaching, filling his sermons with the fire of moral and spiritual discontent. His critical sermons addressed the corrupt political practices that surrounded the people of Mazar-i-Sharif and he spared neither cleric, nor government official, nor the landlords who participated in the crude feudalism of their country of that time. However, as is the norm when spiritual luminaries criticize established authorities in "developing" nations, Mawlana Faizani quickly became a target for men of great power who did not want to upset the status quo.
    He sounds awesome!! Have his khutbas been compiled into a book?

    "Before Taliban: Geneologies of the Afghan Jihan" has a small chapter devoted to him in it.. it and is definitely worth a read.

    I particularly liked this part:

    "is critical sermons addressed the corrupt political practices that surrounded the people of Mazar-i-Sharif and he spared neither cleric, nor government official, nor the landlords who participated in the crude feudalism of their country of that time."

    Shareef,
    His books are spreadable from that site mentioned in wiki article.

    His daughter has a program in one of the Afghan TV channels, Faherul Nissah Ahmadzai and she's really good Masha Allah.

    i have read part of his Book (Haft jaam dar taqwiya e eman---هفت جام در تقویه ایمان) and it all deals with sufi teachings of roh and nafs, i found it informative.
    Oh Allah i am richer than you and you are poorer than me, because i have a Lord like you and you don't have anyone like yourself. Khawaja abdullah ansar.

    How impossible is it to find his works outside of Afghanistan?
