Sayyid Ali Tirmizi (Pashto: سيد علي ترمذي), more commonly known as Pir Baba (پير بابا), was a Sufi who settled in Buner (present-day Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan) among the Yusufzai Pashtuns. He was probably born in 908 AH (1431 CE), in Fergana (present-day Uzbekistan), of Sayyid descent, died in AH 991 (1502 CE).
It is claimed that Pir Baba was the son of Sayyid Qanbar Ali, who was in emperor Babur's army and had come down to Delhi. His mother was of Uzbek origin. Baba was more inclined towards Islamic studies. Baba supposedly married a sister of Daulat Khan a Yusufzai; a respected Pashtun from Buner.
He has 2 sons :
(1) Sayyid Habibullāh Shaah (Buner /Pakistan) (2) Sayyid Mustafa Shaah (Kunar /Afganistan).
His descendants rule to this day in the plains of Pakhli and mountains of Kaghan valley, Mansehra. One notable descendant was a ruler of Swat, Sayyid Akbar Shah who died on 11 May 1957.
