Syedna Abduttayyeb Zakiuddin [1] (death: 2 Rabi-ul-Awwal 1041 AH /1633 AD, Birth : 8th Safar-ul-Muzaffar 972 AH), Ahmedabad, India) is the 29 th Da'i al-Mutlaq (Absolute Missionary) of the Dawoodi Bohra. Dawoodi Bohras claim that he is a successor to the 28th Dai Syedna Sheikh Aadam Safiuddin to the religious post amid succession dispute which resulted in the formation of Alavi Bohra sect who consider Ali (Dawedaar Part 1) as the false successor to the post of Dai. Just for the sake of some money and properties in ahmedabad alavis started following Ali as a Dai. Ali was the grandson of the 28th Dawoodi bohra Dai Syedna Sheikh Aadam Safiuddin.
