“The Second Chain of the Naqshbandiyya is traced through Imam ‘Ali ibn Musa al-Rida radiAllahu anhu” – Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi


Original entrance door to the mausoleum complex of the venerable Khwaja Baha al-Din Shah Naqshband Bukhari, in Uzbekistan.


In Imdad ul-Fatawa Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi writes: “…in fact, all of the chains of Wiliyat connect to the Holy Prophet ﷺ through the mediumship of the Ahl al-Bayt. As such, a chain of the Naqshbandiyya is traced from Hazrat Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq, and their second chain is traced through Hazrat ‘Ali radiAllahu ‘anhu, Hazrat Imam Husayn radiAllahu ‘anhu, Hazrat Imam Zayn al-‘Abidin radiAllahu ‘anhu, Hazrat Imam Muhammad al-Baqir radiAllahu ‘anhu, Hazrat Imam Ja’far al-Sadiq radiAllahu ‘anhu, Hazrat Imam Musa al-Kadhim radiAllahu ‘anhu, Hazrat Imam ‘Ali ibn Musa al-Rida radiAllahu ‘anhu. The Qadiri chain has Hazrat Imam Hasan radiAllahu ‘anhu….the Chistiyya chain has Hazrat ‘Ali and the Suharwardi chain has Hazrat Imam ‘Ali Musa Rida…”[Imdad ul-Fatawa Vol. 6. ‘The Fatawa of Hakim ul-Ummat Hazrat Moulana Ashraf Ali Thanwi: Complied by Hazrat Moulana Mufti Muhammad Shafi Saheb, Grand Mufti of Pakistan’.
