The Silsilat-al-nasab-i Safaviya, also spelled Selselat an-Nasab-e Safaviyye (Persian: سلسلة النسب صفویة‎, meaning Genealogy of the Safavid Dynasty) was written by Sheikh Pir Husayn 'Abd az-Zahidi, a 17th-century descendant of Sheikh Zahed Gilani, during the reign of Shah Sulayman. This hagiography, in praise of the Safavid forebearers, was devoted to the genealogy of Safavid Sufi masters.
