Dr. AH Firdausi married Begum Ahmedunissa Siddiqui. (Begum Ahmedunissa Siddiqui was born in August, 1914 and was the daughter of Hakeem Khwaja Ehsan Ullah Khan Siddiqi of Hakeeman-e-Dehli family. This family traces their lineage to Khwaja Ubaid Ullah Al Ehrar of Samarkand, whose mother was descended from (Almuqallib Khwaja Nasir Uddin) Shaikh Omar Yaghistani, who was a descendant of Hazrat Omer Farooq, Radhi Allah o Anho. One of Khwaja Ubaid Ullah Al Ehrar's well known sufi succesors (Khulafas) was the great sufi-mystic/poet Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī, also known as Moulana Rumi. The Hakeeman-e-Dehli family served as physicians in the court of the Mughals, Jaipur State, Patiala, Rampur, and the Maratha rulers of Gwalior. Another notable person from the family was Hakim Khwaja Ajmal Khan (1863-1927) was an Indian physician specialising in the field of South Asian traditional Unani medicine as well as a Muslim nationalist politician and freedom fighter. Through his founding of the Tibbia College & Jamia Millia Islamia University in Delhi, he is credited with the revival of Unani medicine in early 20th century India. A close associate of Gandhi, he participated in the Non-cooperation movement (Satyagraha), led the Khilafat Movement, and was also the sole person elected to the Presidency of the Indian National Congress, the Muslim League as well as the All India Khilafat Committee.) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hakim_Ajmal_Khan
