Prior to Partition in 1947, Dakoha had a large population of Saadat Shia Muslims who claimed descent from Ali ibn Abi Talib and Fatimah bint-e-Muhammad. The Sadaat community lived near the Rama Mandi and the phatak (railway crossing) of the Jalandhar Cantt Station. Muhammad Anwar, a member of the Dakoha Sadaat, owned a substantial piece of land in Dakoha. He was a well known landlord and is also credited with constructing five wells (Awean waala khoo, Chamaran waala khoo, Mengran waala khoo, Roorran waala Khoo, and School waala khoo) for the people that resided in and around Dakoha.

The Sadaat Colony of Samanabad was created by the members of the Dakoha Sadaat emigre community. However, the descendants of Muhammad Anwar (through his son Tasaddaq) reside in Gulberg II, Lahore.
