    Ancestral Tree of Syeduna AlaHadrat Imam Ahmed Rida Khan al-Qadiri Radi ALLAHu Ta'ala

    The following ancestral tree of AlaHadrat Imam Ahmad Rida Khan is carefully constructed from the authentic Books of Genealogy and meticulously scrutinized with references to other books in this field. The ancestors were compared with dates and periods found in books written by Historians who were masters in this field. The following points were noted before compiling the Ancestral tree:

    - Preference was given to books compiled by Historians of Afghan descent/origin as they knew their descendants better than others.

    - Furthermore, amongst the Afghani Historians, preference was given to Historians that belonged to the Bar'hech tribe as the AlaHadrat belong to the Bar'hech tribe.

    - There is not much dispute in the Chain of the Ancestral tree from Sayyiduna Nabi Adam to Sayyiduna Nabi Ishaq.

    - The chain of the Family tree from Sayyiduna Nabi Ishaq to Hadrat Malikaloot was extracted according to the citation found in the books of authors who belonged to the Bar'hech tribe. This was so because people of a tribe will have more genuine information of their ancestors in relation to others of different tribes.

    - There is a consensus in Books of Ancestral trees from Hadrat Malikaloot to Sayyiduna Qais Malik 'Abdur-Rashid and so is the case from Sayyiduna 'Abdur-Rashid to Bar'hech.

    - From Bar'hechill Hadrat Shuja'at Jang Muhammad Sa'eedullah Khan the genealogy was extracted from Khulasatul-Ansab, Akhbar al-Sanadid and Bustan-e-Hikmat, whose authors are not only Afghanis, but belonged to the Bar'hech tribe.

    This is how cautiously this Family tree from Sayyiduna Nabi Adam till Imam Ahmad Rida Khan was constructed. The Ancestral tree is as follows:

    Mujaddid-e-Aazam AlaHadrat Imam Ahmad Rida Khan s/o Ra'isul-Atqiya Imam Muhammad Naqi 'Ali s/o 'Arife-Billah Imam Rida 'Ali s/o Mawlana Hafiz Kazim 'Ali s/o Mawlana Sha Muhammad A'zam Khan s/o Mawlana Muhammad Sa'adat Yaar Khan s/o Shuja'at Jung Muhammad Sa'idullah Khan Bhadur Qandhari s/o 'Abdur-Rahman Khan s/o Yusuf Khan Qandhari s/o Dawlat Khan s/o Badal Khan s/o Da'd Khan s/o Bar'hech Khan s/o Sharfud-Deen 'Urf Shar'haboon s/o Ibra'him 'Urf Sard'bun s/o Sayyiduna Qais Malik 'Abdur-Rashid Sahabi s/o 'Ays s/o Salool s/o 'Utba s/o Na'eem s/o Marra s/o Malik Jalandar s/o Malik Askandar s/o Zaman s/o 'Unais s/o Bah'lool s/o Sa'lam s/o Salah s/o Qaroon s/o Nasr s/o Ashmu'ail s/o Na'eem s/o Akram s/o Ash'ath s/o Sharood s/o Makhal s/o Nusrat s/o Qalaj s/o Sher s/o 'Atham s/o Faylool s/o Karam s/o 'Amaal s/o Hudayfa s/o Mat'hal s/o Qabal s/o 'Ilm or 'Aleem s/o Ash'mool s/o Haroon s/o Qamar s/o Abi s/o Su'heb s/oalal s/o Lu'ee s/o 'Ameel s/oaraj s/o Arzand s/o Mandool s/o Saleem or Sa'lam s/o Afghana s/o Sarad al-Muqallab bi Malikaloot s/o Qais s/o 'Utbah s/oalas s/ou'ail s/o Yahoodah s/o Sayyiduna Nabi Ya'qoob s/o Sayyiduna Nabi Ishaq s/o Khaleelullah Sayyiduna Nabi Ibra'him s/o Ta'rikh s/o Makhood or Nahoor s/o Shuroo' or Ash'ragh s/o Sayyiduna Nabi Hood s/o 'Abir s/o Sha'lakh s/o Araf'khashad s/o Saam s/o Sayyiduna Nabi Nooh [age: 1400 years] s/o La'lak [age:780 years] s/o Malik Matla'shakh [age: 900 years] s/o Sayyiduna Nabi Idris s/o Bayarad s/o Mahla'heel s/o Qay'nan s/o Anoosh s/o Sayyiduna Nabi Sheeth [age: 912 years] s/o Sayyiduna Nabi Adam [age: 900 years]

    AlaHadrat belong to the Afghani Bar'hech tribe which was of Royal Descent. He was indeed a very respectable and noble tribe in Afghanistan. Great 'Ulama and Masha'ikh hailed from his dignified tribe whose Mazars are still a center of solace and spiritual enlightment forhe people both in Afghanistan and Hindustan. A separate detailed book can be written about these great dignitaries. Since this a very brief introduction of AlaHadrat, therefore no details will be recorded therein. However, an important point to note is that in the ancestry of AlaHadrat, there are eight Prophets and one Sahabi. The Prophets are:

    1) Sayyiduna Nabi Ya'qoob
    2) Sayyiduna Nabi Ishaq
    3) Khalilullah Sayyiduna Nabi Ibra'him
    4) Sayyiduna Nabi Hood
    5) Sayyiduna Nabi Nooh
    6) Sayyiduna Nabi Idris
    7) Sayyiduna Nabi Sheeth
    8) Sayyiduna Nabi Adam

    The one Sahabi is Sayyiduna Qais Malik 'Abdur-Rashid Sahabi . He is the 43rd descendant of Afghana and 45th descendant of Hadrat Malikaloot. Qais bin 'Ays lived in the mountain of Ghour. In one of the Expeditions of Sayyiduna Khalid ibn Walid, he became interested in Islam. So he took some of the leaders of Afghanistan and wento Madina al-Munawwara. They met the beloved Prophet of Allah and immediately accepted Islam on his sacred hands. Sayyiduna Rasoolullah then said to him: "Qais is a Hebrew word and I am an Arab." The Prophet of Allah gave him the Islamic name 'Abdur-Rashid. The Habib further said: "You are the Awlad of Malik Taloot whom Allah blessed with the title of Malik (King). in the future you too will be remembered with the title of Malik." This is how he got the title of Malik from the office of Prophethood.

    It was in the Madinan period that the Beloved Nabi was planning for the conquest of Makka and appointed Malik 'Abdur-Rashid and the other Afghani Sahabi ast he lead of the secret service scouts of the army led by Sayyiduna Khalid ibn Walid. The Afghani Mujahids displayed their astonishing bravery in the battle of Makka. Sayyiduna Malik 'Abdur-Rashid himself killed 70 Kuf'far in this battle. His role and bravery in this war brought great joy to the heart of the Beloved Prophet who predicted that a great family will emerge from the off-springs of this Sahabi. They will be steadfast on religion and will strengthen the Din of Islam like Bataan (conqueror with great bravery or Military Advisor). It was the effects of this Du'a of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah that great 'Ulama and Masha'ikh were born in the lineage of Sayyiduna Malik 'Abdur-Rashid.

    To name a few, some other stars in the firmament of excellence werehe great Mujaddid, Ala-Hadrat Imam Ahmadaza al-Qadiri and his sons, Hujjatul Islam Mawlana Hamid Rida Khan, Ghawth al-Zaman Mufti A'zam Imam Mustafaida al-Qadiri Noori and Huzoor Tajush Sharee'ah Mufti Akhtar Rida Khan. Their services to the Deen is known to the Muslim World and precisely the manifestations of the Du'as of the Beloved Prophet of Allah.

    Since the Beloved Nabi's Du'a for the Awlad of Sayyiduna Malik 'Abdur-Rashid was that they will strengthen the Deen and their strength will be like Bataan, from that day on he became famous by the title of "Bataan". This word Bataan in later days changed to the present day name "Pathaan". Eventually, the Awlad of Sayyiduna Malik 'Abdur-Rashidhen became synonymous by the word Pathaan. This is how the word Pataan can into existence. Sayyiduna Malik 'Abdur-Rashid married Mutahira, the daughter of Sayyiduna Khalid ibn Walid, and he passed away at the age of 87 years.
  4. He is Sayyidi wa Sanadi `Ala Hadrat Mujaddid al-Din wal Millah Imam Ahl al-Sunnah Mawlana as-Shaykh Ahmad Rida Khan al-Baraylawi al-Qandari Thumma al-Qadiri al-Barkati , radhiy Allahu `anhu wa rahimahuLLah ta`ala

    Please remember not to underestimate this corner of the earth, where the Barech live, as some unkown, desolate, isolated, sparse corner of wildnerness. No its not like that.

    This is the land of the three countries


    In Islamic history, Sistan and Bost/Bust have held a mighty place producing many of our elder Sunni Imams of the sciences.

    It is plausible to say 'ala HaDrat was both pashtun and baluch.

    This is another map below of the Barech Durrani Pashtuns in the adjacent province of Helmand towards the west of Kandahar province.

    As you can see, the Barech live right in between the Baluch and the Durranis, in the plains of the south. Both these nations are famous for being the lovers of RasulAllah salAllaho 'alaihi wa alihi wa sallam and for being staunch Sunnis.

    assalamu 'alaykum

    'Ala HaDrat is from the Barech Tribe as I read.

    Please check the map below and see where they are:

    http://www.nps.edu/Programs/CCS/Docs/PDF Maps/NewTribal/Kandahar.pdf

    Barech is a tribal area of Pashtuns that borders Pakistan and Quetta and is right next to the Baluch tribes of Kandahar province. It is ONLY found there in this region.

    This is from another website:

    As you can see, Qalat or Kalat was a large princely state in the Baluchistan province of Pakistan with Baluch, Brahui, and Pashtun races.
