Haydar Amuli belongs to the Hussayni Sayyid family and hails from the town of Amol , in Mazandaran , located in the north of present-day Iran , close to the Caspian Sea. The town of Amul at the time was known to be heavily populated by Shi'ite Muslims. At a very young age he started studying Imam Shi'ism and attended the juridical school of madhhab where he also devoted his time to Sufism, until around the age of thirty. He eventually moved on to the town of Astarabad , located near Mazandaran, and then Isfahan , located in the centre of Iran. Amuli quotes in his work Inner Secrets of the Path that he started to feel that he was corrupt and that he needed to move to a place where he could fully devote himself to God.

He meanwhile asserts that those who understand the inner secrets are in minority and not all have the capacity of its comprehension. Thus many came to deny it and Imams thereupon did not openly talked about it in the presence of every one.
