His birth name was Abu Talib Jauhar, which during his studies in Iraq turned into Talib Jauhari. His family has produced many[vague] scholars and religious authorities in the past two centuries.
He is the son of Muhammad Mustafa Jauhar, who was himself an Islamic scholar, philosopher and poet. Jauhar wrote books on Islamic philosophy; for example, Tawheed o Adal Nahj al-Balagha ki roshni mein and Saboot-e-Khuda; and on jurisprudence, for example Aqaid-e-Jaafria and Asool-e-Jaafria. Deewan-e-Mehrab was his poetic work.
Jauhari's sons Asad Jauhari, Riaz Jauhari and Amjad Jauhari and his daughter Husna Jauhari are also scholars. Among them Asad Jauhari and Amjad Jauhari received religious education from Hawza Ilmia Qom, Iran. Amjad Jauhari has also received Ijaza-e-Riwayah from notable Iranian scholars from Qom.
