Hazrat wrote poetry in Hindi, Urdu, and Farsi (Persian). Qawwals still sing his poetry of Hindi, Farsi, and Urdu. His poetry contains an homage to his Pir (Master) and other Sufi Saints of his orders, such as Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani and Khawaja Moinuddin Chishti of Ajmer Shareef, India.

Hazrat  habib ali shah established Khanqas in several cities of India. Hazrat was the focal point for the people from various religions, caste, creeds, colours, languages. They obtained his advice in spiritual development and understanding Islam correctly. Hazrat used to conduct lessons on dars Quran and Hadees Nabawi. 

Habib ali shah placed great attention on the acquisition of knowledge of Sharia and the intricate teachings of Tariqah. Lessons were not only given from the classical works of Aulia Allah such as “Fasusu Al Hikam”, “Ruh Ar Arwah”, “Mathanawi Shareef Moualana Rome rh”, “Jazb al Qulub”, “Kash al Mahjoub of Hazrat Data Ganj Bakhsh rh”, “Kashkol-e-Kalimi of Hazrat Shah Kaleem Ullah Shahanjebad wali rh” and various other classical works but Hazrat explicitly taught some of his books such as Habib ul Talibun at the Khanqah.

He wrote 30+ books in various languages but is now being translated into Urdu and English by his disciples.

He designed the syllabus and methodology for the teachings in Khanqas, which are still practised and admired. A conceivable module of “Theoretical Tasawwauf” could read like this, and then a practical approach is done by the master himself for disciples.
