He is the great master of Qaderieh sect. His mellow voice, transparent and precise tone of daf, strong touch and piercing and influential poems he sings are his main characteristics.

His sons and grandsons are his best pupils. Alireza and Abd-ol-Rahman have inherited father's tone of voice and touch, and occasionally accompanies him. Recent years witness the founding of numerous daf ensembles many of them being under the direct or indirect influence of his trio. Though Khalifeh Qosi complains the inauthenticity of many of these ensembles, the influence of his daf playing and singing on them are undeniable. ...
