Syedna Abd al-Tayyib Zakiuddin was born in 1564. His father was Dawood Bin Qutubshah while his mother was Raani Aai Saheba binte Ali bin Jivabhai. He had two brothers: 32nd Dai Syedna Qutub Khan Qutubuddin, Miya Khan-ji and a sister called Habiba.


It was during his tenure that a dissident sect was formed called Alavi Bohras led by Ali bin Ibrahim, grandson of Sheikh Adam Safiuddin.


Zakiuddin appointed (declared nass on) Syedna Ali Shams al-Din IV to be his successor.[1]


Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin dedicated a new mausoleum in 1996. The inner walls are ornamented with verses of the Quran in Kufic script and inlaid with rubies.
