Notable descendants[edit]

Saleh muhammad safoori[edit]

Saleh Muhammad Safoori was the son of Mai Safoora. He had written a poetic collection: Kulliyat-e-Saleh Muhammad Safoori. This book was published by Yousaf Tahir Miana. Saleh Muhammad Safoori was a learned man and his first writing made public by Yousaf Tahir was a piece in Persian poetry about Sufi poet Baba Bulleh Shah who had visited Sufi Abdul Hakeem, a senior contemporary of Ali Haider and Mai Safoora. Bulleh Shah`s visit to Hakeem was also mentioned by Khwaja Farid in Maqabeesul Majalis. That Persian Tazkara written by Saleh muhammad safoori is still in manuscript form and it requires more investment than perhaps Yousuf Tahir, the great grandson of Saleh could afford.[2]

Perhaps that has not been done by Qamar. Thus, one of the six chapters of the book is about Ali Haider, his ancestors, his own learned position in the area where he was counted among the Qazi family.

According to the chronology quoted by Yousuf, Ali Haidar died some four years after the death of Mai Safoora. Ali Haidar died at the age of 98.
