Sheikh Adam Banuri (R.A) was a disciple of Mujaddid Alf Saani (R.A). The name Banuri originates from the Sheikh who migrated from Baghdad to settle in the Indian village of Banur to spread the message of Islam. Banur is a small town about 25 km from Chandigarh, the capital of Indian Punjab, on the Chandigarh-Patiala National Highway, NH 64. Sheikh Adam Banuri was Sayed on his father side and his mother was an Afghan. His family settled down in Banur, near Sirhind. He had written book entitled Kalimatul Ma arif, two of his other works, the Khulasatu Ma arif and the Nikatul Asrar, were among other well- known works on Sufi teachings.

He was an Indian Islamic scholar from Punjab, a Hanafi jurist, and a prominent member of the Naqshbandī Sufi order. He challenged so many time orders of Emperor Akbar and Emperor Shahjahan.
