Our History

The Inception: A Visionary's Dream (1920)

Zinda Tilismath was founded in 1920 by Hakeem Mohammed Moizuddin Farooqui, based on the Unani system of medicine. This was the period when new industries were beginning to emerge in the then State of Hyderabad and were adding to the grandeur of the Deccan.

Hakeem Mohammed Moizuddin Farooqui was a renowned Unani practitioner of his day, who had completed his studies from Delhi University. He received his Hikmat (Degree in Unani Medicine) during the time of the Spanish influenza. 

The Spanish Influenza: A Turning Point

As the world grappled with the devastating Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which infected a staggering 33% of the global population, Hakeem Mohammed Moizuddin Farooqui embarked on a philanthropic mission. Determined to create an affordable and effective solution, he formulated Zinda Tilismath, a revolutionary remedy that not only alleviated the symptoms of the flu but also became a household name for treating various ailments, both internally and externally.
