The renowned theologian Bayazit-Sheikh Khayrullin was born in 1871 and grew up in Ufa. His military service Bayazit-Sheikh completed in Vladikavkaz, where he showed himself as a honest and trustworthy Muslim.
 
Seeing the religiousness of the young man, the commander of the military unit offered him his help in obtaining Islamic education. He gave Khayrullin the direction to study in the madrassas of Orenburg, where sheikh studied for three years, after which he returned to Vladikavkaz to become a local imam.
