رو در صف دوستان ما باش و مترس"

"خاک راه آستان ما باش و مترس

"Be on the side of our friends and do not despair

Be dust on the way of our Kingdom and do not despair"

-Sayyid ul Sadaat Sayyid Mir Mahmud Agha (qs) (heir of Shah Bahauddin Naqshband al Askari al Jilani (qs) in the 19th century)

 

Supreme Leadership of the Naqshbandiyya

The Mahmudian Caliphate is a 400 year old international institution, that constitutes leadership of the Naqshbandi Sufi Order as genetical descendants of the founding father of the order Bahauddin Naqshband.

The office began with the proclamation by Sayyid Khawand Mahmud after whom the caliphate is called, who according to Naqshbandi believe fulfilled a legendary prophecy of the founding father of the order Bahauddin Naqshband.

Until the coming of the first Hazrat Ishaan the family of Shah Naqshband, that was lead by "Imams of the family", was urgently waiting for the coming of the promised "Qaim"(One who rises). The second "Qaim" who according to Naqshbandi believe fulfilled a prophecy of Hazrat Ishaan I was Hazrat Sayyid Mir Jan, the 8th male Caliph.

As the only Caliphate that emphacizes the right of pious women to lead, the Caliphate has both male and female Caliphs. The male Caliphs are known as "Hazrat Ishaan"(One with the divinely blessed presence), whereas the female one´s are called Taj ul Nisaa (Crowns of womenkind) with equal spiritual and political rights and powers.

The Caliphs intermarried with the Mughal Imperial and Afghan Royal family expanding their political power as Royals significantly in both states.

After the Communist Coup d´état of Afghanistan in year 1978 the Caliphate has established a greater international presence with vivid influence in the Western political lobby as "Liberal Democratic faces of Sunni Islam".

The current Caliph is His Highness Prince Sayyid Raphael Dakik, who serves as 14th male Caliph with the regnal title Rafi ul Shaan billah (The one raised in dignity by God)
