Sayyed Tajuddin Muhammad Badruddin (Arabic: ٱلسَّيِّد تَاجُ ٱلدِّيْن مُحَمَّد بَدْرُ ٱلدِّيْن, romanizedAs-Sayyid Tajud-Dīn Muḥammad Badrud-Dīn; January 27, 1861 – August 17, 1925), also known as Tajuddin Baba (Arabic: تَاجُ ٱلدِّيْن بَابَا, romanizedTajud-Dīn Bābā), was an Indian Sufi master who is considered as a Qutb.[1] His shrine is in Nagpur, Maharashtra, India.[2]: 46 


Sayyid Tajuddin Baba was born in 1861 (1277 A.H.) to the family of Imam Husain, being a tenth-generation descendant of the founder of the global Sufi Naqshbandi order, Baha-ud-Din Naqshband Bukhari, and a 22nd-generation descendant of the eleventh Twelver Imam, Hasan al-Askari.[3][4][5][6] Baba's forefathers had migrated from Mecca and settled down in Madras, India. His father was an employee in military.[7]

Baba Tajuddin was orphaned at a young age and raised by his maternal grandmother and uncle Abdul Rahman. He attended a madrasah in Kamptee, Nagpur.[2]: 47  There he met Abdulla Shah Naushahi.[8]

Abdullah Shah Hussaini Qadri Shuttari Sahib who was a Majzoob Salik[clarification needed] saint from Qadri Shuttari Sufi order commented (about Baba) to his teacher that "There is no need of teaching this boy, he is already a learned person." He also gave young Tajuddin Baba some dried fruits and nuts as his blessings for Baba, which is said to put the young boy into an ongoing spiritual trance-like state. Baba completed his education and studied Urdu, English, Arabic and Persian.[9]
