Makhdoom Alauddin Ali Ahmed Sabir, also known as صابر کلیری Sabir Kaliyari ("Saint of Kaliyar"), was a South Asian Sufi saint in the 13th century. He was nephew successor to Baba Fareed (1188–1280),[2] and the first in the Sabiriya branch of the Chishti Order. Today, his dargah (Sufi mausoleum) is at Kaliyar village, near Haridwar.


Khawaja Sultan Ul Arifeen Sayyed Sabir Pak Ali Ahmed was the great grandson of GHOUSE Ul Azam Sayyed Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani RA. His father was Sayyed Abdus Salaam Abdur Rahim Jilani RA son of Sayyid Abdul Wahaab Jilani RA eldest son of Hazrat Sheikh Sayyed Abdul Qadir Jilani Ra. His mother was Sayyedah Jamilah RA elder sister of Baba Farid Ganjshakkar RA and direct descendent of Hazrat Umar Al Farooq RA.

Hazrat Baba Fareed (رحمتہ اللہ علیہ) entrusted him (Davis Piya) the duty of distribution of food (Langar). He accepted this duty happily and in between engaged himself in prayers. He dispensed with his duties well and also attended the discourse of Hazrat Baba Freed Ganje Shakar RA. He did not partake a single morsel from food (Langer), kept fasts and went to the jungle and ate wild berries and leaves. He did his duties for 12 years. He prayed continuously and his abstentions were never disrupted. Frequent and continuous fasting and eating leaves and wild food made him weak. When his mother came back again and saw him, she complained to his brother (Hazrat Baba Fareed RA) of his weakness. Hazrat Baba Fareed RAcalled upon him and asked the reason. Sabir Pak replied “You ordered me to distribute the food and not to partake from it”. Baba Fareed RA embraced him happily and remarked “He is SABIR (Patient)”. From that day forth He became famous with the name of “SABIR”.
