Hazrath Soofie Saheb RA is a direct descendant of Sayedena Hazrath Abu Bakr Siddique RA, the first Caliph of Islam and the father-in-law of the Holy Prophet SAW. We are in possession of an ancient genealogy written at Port Ibrahim Pattan (Ratnagir), India on 24 Ramadan 1185 AH (1771), a little over two hundred years ago. Most of the names in the genealogy, especially in the latter generations, have the title Qadi. They were Islamic judges and were posted to various parts of the Middle East and India. The first Qadi-e-Shariat was Hazrath Qadi Ismail RA, appointed on 15 Ramadan 854 (1450).
