Rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayh
The family of Hadrat Sultan Sayyad Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Jahangir Semnani Rahmatullahi 'alayh came to be known as 'Khandan al-Ashrafiya' and the forefather of this dynasty in Asia is Hadrat Sayyad Abd'al Razzaq Nur al-Ayn Rahmatullahi 'alayh. This family came to be known as 'Ashrafi Sadaat.'
Before Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf Rahmatullahi 'alayh passed away, he designated his dearest nephew and adopted son Hadrat Abd 'al Razzaq Nur al-Ayn Rahmatullahi 'alayh as his natural successor. His quest was to continue Hadrat Makhdoom Ashraf's Rahmatullahi 'alayh mission of preaching Islam and the propagation of the Chistiya Qadiriya Silasil for the spiritual well being of humanity. Abd'al Razzaq Nur al-Ayn Rahmatullahi 'alayh, like his uncle was also a direct descendent of His Eminence Ghawth al-A'zam As-Sayyad Shaykh Abd 'al-Qadir al-Jilani Radi 'Allahu 'ta'ala Anhu.
