Why did the family have to arrive from Iran? There are Syeds in other countries too you know. Mainly the Middle East and North Africa (arab countries).

Why did the family have to arrive from Iran?

I don't know. It was not mentioned in that book. I can only guess. May be economic problems?! Or may be the prospect of owning a land?! Who knows.

You know what, this thought came to my mind too while I was writing this story. Why did all those hundreds of families move to an unknown place? They were not 2 or 4 people, there were many families, and people in such a big number did not use to move and leave their ancestral homes unless it becomes necessary.

Syed Sharfuddin Shah wilayat. Arrived in AMROHA, UP (sadaat-e-Amroha) from Iraq- the iraqi city was called WASIT. We are NAQVI. Im from Amroha.

Ali

This is very true. Hazrat Syed Sharfuddin came from Iran. Hazrat Syed Sharfuddin titled Shahwilayat, Al-Naqvi,Al-Amrohvi. Originally he was in Wasit, a city in Iraq. Therefore, one of his title is Al-Wasty.

More information on Amroha can be found on Wikipedia and Pakistan Amroha.

Yet another Naqvi Amrohvi..

Hassan s/o Qaem Amrohvi.

I'm pretty sure that one of first ancestors' name was Jalaluddin - or that at least "jalal" was part of his name. You see, we still do a niyaz for Dada Jalal (marhoom) on special ocassions, and I afaik we (peharsari jafris descended from jalaluddin) have a family tree going up to him!

:)

I'm also quite impressed with all that other info you've found. That stuff's really interesting to read! :)

I'd heard paharsar was named due to how it was conquered but I've never read abt it in as much detail as now

I doubt if his name was Jalaluddin.

it's actually quite interesting that u mention the Gardezi family. In fact a number of other saddat families have also entered Pak/India via that route, and have been naqvi as opposed to Zaidi.

If u ever analysis the movement of the Naqvi family u come to understand that there are two branches, the first from Bukhara who are generally the descendents of Syed Jalal-al-din 'sorkh' Bukhari and the naqvi family of Ghardez origin who are from the line of Syed Mustapha Ghardezi (mustaphabad in India, UP is orginally named after him)

The Ridhavi line, or rizvi as they are known in Pak/India seem to have a number of links into the subcontinent. The earliest ive come across is in 1555 during the time of the then king of the mughals who ran to iran and gained the help of the 3rd Safavid King and returned to India to defeat Sher Shah Suri. The commander of the army was a general by the name of Syed Ghozal and his son Syed Sozal who later settled in Jaunpur UP if i have that name spelt correctly. They were Shirazi i think originally and Jaunpur became known as shiraz-e-Hind for a while due to the then natural beauty.

Other Rizavi family members came over to India as missionaries, especially via the Afghanistan route. We have a huge portion of Rizavi Saddat having come over from Sabzwar.

Anyhow that's a little bit of info for your research

Having looked at my family tree (Naqvi/Bukhari) I've noticed Syed Jalal-ud-din Surkh Bukhari (Clad in Red) (1197-1291) from Uch Sharif, amazing cant believe it!!!

Anyone else related to him??

Salaam alaikum,

Syeds were called from Iran to be generals in India. Their importance was recognised by their family and the ones in those days are unlike now where you have so-called Syeds doing all kinds of haraam acts.

If you read about the history of people like Syed SharfUddin of Amroha, you will know there is high spirituality factor of him.

When they came from Iran they were given lands as rewards and that's why I know some that own several villages (or atleast did until the modern generation sold the land off for some quick cash) :(

The same would apply to us. We are Musavi Syeds. Our family is situated now in Hyderabad (I'm in the US) but I don't know where our ancestor originally settled as far as a village goes. Have to ask my grandmother. Apparently our family tree is still there in Hyderabad which traces us back to the son of Imam Musa (as).

Nahh, I do not think so. :)

Can anyone here say they have actually never wondered why so many Indians and Pakistani's call themselves syed, and whether or not it can be true that so many of them claim it?

In my short lifetime I have come across more Paki/Indian people that say they are syed than the Muslims from all other countries combined. Even on this website the most who claim it are the Pakistani's and Indians. I am not saying that any of them are not, what I am asking is if it makes sense, and if others have wondered about this too.

To me it seems a whole culture around being syed has developed in those two countries. Not only that, but I notice some radical opinions they have of themselves.

My father was making an interesting point just the other day similar to what you are saying here. He said that the Imams (as) had only so many children. Why is there such an explosion of Syeds in the India/Pakistan area when places such as Iran or Iraq only have so many Syeds and that is really where you should be finding the heaviest concentration?

Obviously that means that you have many who claim that they are Syed but are not. Might not be their fault. Someone up the family tree may have decided that they want to call themselves Syed when they are not and that's just carried down over the generations. People speak of how Syeds all have family trees but I'm sure there are Syeds out there that do not have a family tree and even if they do have one its probably in oral format and not on paper.

Salaam alaikum,

Thanks for all information given so far.

Does anyone have informations on the holy families Khandaan-e-Ijtehad and Baqir-ul-Uloom families and their routes taken.

I believe Khandaan-e-Ijtehad arrived to Bareilly in a place called Jaees.

Baqir-ul-Uloom family to Kashmir.

I heard Rizvis also arrived to Zaidpur.

Zaidis arrived to Muzaffar Nagar and Muthikpur, Meerut and Bijnor (Uttar Pradesh). I believe (especcially in the case of Muzaffar Nagar) that the ancestor was Syed Abul Farah Zaidi al-Wasti.

Taqvi Syeds arrived to Amroha and Badshah.

Naqvi Syeds arrived to Amroha through general Syed Sharfuddin aka. "Dada" Shah Wilayat who is the ancestor of every Naqvi in Amroha (several hundreds of Naqvis now spanning worldwide).

Also Naqvis in Bareilly.

Anybody care to add to this?

WS.

Salamz Brother-

I was searching for something online and came across your JE here on ShiaChat. Mashallah it is a nice effort, however I would like to make a correction here and if someone already did that please accept my appologyze.

Zaidi did not arrive to Muzaffar Nagar and Muthikpur, Meerut and Bijnor directly. The Jad e Amjad [Great Great Grandfather] Syed Abul Fara Wasti first settle in Multan area and were well settle there for a while until Mahmood of Ghazni attacked Multan in 1005, the rulers are sometime known as Ismaili Fatimid Kingdom [which is not correct indeed and it was a Shia family who was settle and ruling Multan for reference the books written by Justice Aamir Ali ] and ruler whom he defeted was Syed Abul-Futtah Wasti [son of Syed Abul Fara Wasti], Mahmood thus destroyed the Saddat family there and they then decided to spread in different parts of Indian sub continent in safe places.

Their first stop was in State of Patiala in cities of Chhaat and Banoor [close to a well know city knows as Samana] and from there they migrate to all over indian, a big part moved to central India to cities like Muzaffar Nagar and from there to different areas, where as part of family decided to settle in Northern India in District Ambala [the part I belong to]. The family from Ambala Dristrict moved to Pakistan in full and settle in Gujranwala District, Karachi, Multan and Khanewal regions where some families did migrate from Central India as well and mostly settle in Karachi.

Salam,

My grandfather was Munir Hussain Zaidi (he was landlord like many sayeds and had 29 children with3-4 wives) from Muzaffar Nagar. my Father Iqrar Hussain Zaidi migrated with his mother and sibling to Lahore in 1947. The whole Zaidi clan ( all of my fathers siblings and their children) now reside in Toronto, Canada

I would appreciate if anyone has acess to or knew of a published Shajra of the Zaidi's in India. Please email me the information at Wzaidi1@gmail.com. I would like to publish the Shajra as a living document that can be traced and extended by all our future generations. Any advice will appreciated.

Salam alaikum,

This is my return to Shiachat after some absence.

To all SYEDs of India/Pakistan...

The question is... when your ancestor arrived from Iran to India:

What was their name?

What Imam (as) did they descend from?

Which town/village did they arrive to?

An example:

Syed Abul Farah Wasti

Zaidi Syed

Sadat-e-Bahra, Muzaffar Nagar, UP.

If you know any other information like in which year they arrived and how many generations down from certain Imam (as) they are then that is interesting too.

Dont give any answer like Karachi, Lahore etc. because they are not Syed villages - Syeds only moved there after some period of time - they never arrived and settled there first.

No offence to non-Syeds. This is part of some interesting research I am doing.

Please no one deviate from the question in hand.

Just give the answer and thats it. - If you are family of another person of this forum then send them PM - please dont ruin this thread.

Thanks.

Khuda Hafiz.

Care to enlighten us all with the results or perhaps just the objectives of this "study" of yours?

You're asking people for their quite personal information over the internet which can greatly help identify them IRL.

Correction, there are many more Naqivis's as you call them, they may not necessarily be also only in the sub-continent, my mom's side is from a family which was settled in Khorasan for a looong time before it came to Panipat, and it has no connection with the Naqivis as you know them.

There was a very famous Pir called Abdullah Ansari of Herat, form the early,11th century, he had a daughter who was married to a grandson of Imam Naqi (as) called Khwaja Ali and settled in Khorasan, and that line is called the Khwajagan-of the Syed variety, a branch of this migrated to Panipat on the mongolian destruction-13 the centruy, but some did not, and kept links with the clan and did so migrate even as late as the 19th centruy, so 800 years of family history outside the known Naqivis (this is a very small clan not like millions), well documented, get you the Shajara sometime, Mom's got it, WaSalam!

Dear Brother, Would it possible for you to send me the Shajra document of Khwajagan Naqvi from Panipat. I need this document urgently. May Allah shower all blessing on you, ilitimas-e-dua, waiting for your reply

Please explain your statement. I'm curious. :Hijabi:

Common sense really. There's no genetic advantage in being a syed, as opposed to being tall, clever, handsome, strong, charismatic, etc. A syed could have some of these qualities or none at all, same as a non-syed. The sad situation is that the artifical social elevation of syeds has led many on the Indian subcontinent to promote themselves to syed status rather than challenging the institution itself. The persistence of this institution will lead to inbreeding and genetic disadvantage in a few generations.
