Hadrat Abd'al Razzaq Noor al-Ayn Rehmatullahi alaih thirst for even more knowledge took him to many places with his spiritual mentor Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Radi Allahu 'Anhu, and very soon he had built up an enviable reputation as an eminent and leading mystic of his time. He spent many days in the company of other great spiritual Sufis and Saints where he obtained many blessings and 'faiz' from them. During the time he remained in the company of Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Radi Allahu 'Anhu he came into contact with 114 great Saints around the world. It was in one of these meetings he received the title of ' Shaykh al-Islam' from Hadrat Shaykh Qassam Radi Allahu 'Anhu in Turkey in the presence of Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Radi Allahu 'Anhu.
On the 28th Muharram A.H 808, Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Radi Allahu 'Anhu made him his Janasheen (spiritual successor) the very day that he himself departed from this mortal world. Hadrat Nizamuddin Esfahani and other disciples were beside him at that particular time. He had entrusted all of his 'Asrare Ilahi' (divine secrets) to him and endowned his blessed Khirquah and other taburrakat as well. Addressing all those that had gathered Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Radi Allahu 'Anhu spoke for the last time and said " Noor al-Ayn is my true son, he who will deviate from him will get nothing, and he who will remain with him, will get success in both worlds."
When Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Radi Allahu 'Anhu was about to leave the world, Hadrat Abd'al Razzaq Noor al-Ayn Rehmatullahi alaih began to weep bitterly and said the following couplet :
Mara Maguzar tanha Dar gribi
Ke ghurbat badtar Az Jan Kandam nist
"Dont leave me alone in this world as being far from one's land is harsher than taking a life"
On hearing this Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Radi Allahu 'Anhu consoled him and said :
Madar Khali Az ham Nahini Morra
Ke Binam Tora gar na bini Mora
"Dont think of yourself far from associations, that i will see you, if you will not see me"
Some of the great Ulema's and Saints were among Hadrat Abd'al Razzaq Noor al-Ayn's Rehmatullahi alaih Caliphs, these were :
Hadrat Khawaja Abd'al Aziz
Hadrat Khawaja Abul Fatah Gwaliori
Hadrat Khawaja Vasee al-Ashraf
Hadrat Sayyad Kazee Yaseen Kanjuhi Alambardar
Ridwanallahi ta'ala alaihim a'ajmain
Hadrat Abd'al Razzaq Noor al-Ayn Rehmatullahi alaih finally left this world on 872 A.H. His dargah (shrine) is right next to his Pir o Murshid Hadrat Sultan Sayyad Makhdoom Ashraf Jahangir Radi Allahu 'Anhu in Kicchocha Shareef.
