Shah Syed Mohammed Asrarullah Hussaini Al Maroof Hazrath Syed Mohammed Imam Ali Shah Naqshbandi, Quadri, Chisthi, Hanafi Al Baghdadi, popularly known as Imam Ali Shah (1856 - 1920) was a sufi saint of his time, who migrated from Damascus, Syria to Berar Province now in Maharashtra, India, and then to Hyderabad Deccan at the age of 18.

He was a descendant of the Islamic prophet Mohammed.

He laid the foundation and constructed Masjid-e-Baghdadi also known as Tek-ki-Masjid which stands still in Nampally, Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India.

His dargah or shrine is attached to the same Masjid.[1]

The Annual Urs takes place on 4th Jumada al-thani every year of the Islamic calendar.

It is an Andhra Pradesh State Wakf Board Registered Dargah.[2]

A saint from his time is Hadarât Imam Ahmed Raza Khan (rehmat-allahi-alaih) of Bareilly, India.

One of the incidents which occurred in his lifetime is that once there was gathering inside the masjid on the night of Milad-un-Nabi, someone asked him about the Mohammed's ascension to heaven. He immediately passed through the wall of the masjid and went the other side and came back and told the gathering that when he being the servant of Mohammed's can pass through a wall without any difficulty then why can't Mohammed, Imams of the Prophets, ascend to the heavens with his holy Body.

Current descendants or Sajjada's of this sufi are:

Syed Mohammed Arifullah Hussaini
Syed Mohammed Amanullah Hussaini
