Some Clarifications[edit]

  • Similarly, Hafiz Abu Saeed (32) and Shah Ahmed Saeed (33) who was his son, both received Khilafat from Shah Ghulam Ali Dehlavi (31). But since Hafiz Abu Saeed (32) succeeded Shah Ghulam Ali first, and then was followed by Shah Ahmed Saeed, both names are mentioned in the chain.
  • Khwaja Ala'uddin Attar (18) and Khwaja Yaqub Charkhi (19) both received Khilafat from Shah Baha'uddin Naqshband (17). But since Khwaja Yaqub Charkhi also received spiritual training from Khwaja Ala'uddin, his name comes after Khwaja Ala'uddin.
