Hazrat Khwaja Syed Mohammad Badshah Qadri-ul-Chishti Yamani Raichuri Rahmatullah'alaih (1903 (1324 Hijri) – 1978), was a Sufi saint of the Chisti order in India, known commonly as Badshah Quadri or Badesha Qadri, who preached universal brotherhood and peace.[1]

Badesha Quadri was born in Raichur, Karnataka, India, during Bakrid on the 10th day of Dhul Hijja, on a Friday, to a Sayyid family which originally came from Yemen.[1] His family trace their descent from Hasan ibn Ali, the first grandson of Muhammad.[1]

At an early age, Badesha Quadri became a disciple of his paternal uncle Shah Nabi Mohiuddeen Quadri, of the Chisti order, who was then a renowned Chisti elder. He later became a disciple of Hazrath Shaikh Karimullah Shah Qadri. Before Karimullah died, he passed the role of Pir,[2] the leadership of the Qadiriyyah and Chishti traditions, to Badesha Quadri.

Badesha Quadri is entombed in Halkatta Shareef outside of Wadi in the Gulbarga District of Karnataka.[1] His work is continued there by his son and successor Hazrat Syed Ibrahim Shah Qadri.[2][3] There is an annual festival or urs for Badesha Quadri and thousands of his followers travel to Halkatta Shareef for it.[1][2][4][5] The urs marks the anniversary of the saint’s death. The term urs literally means wedding with the divine.
