Little About

The beloved grandson of A`lā Hazrat & Ustad e Zaman Hazrat `Mawlana `Muhammad Kaif Razā Qādirī (may his shadow be prolonged) is a man of excellence; the blessings that come from his relations with his ancestors play a great role in him.

He is the youngest son of Nabira e A`lā Hazrat wa Ustad e Zaman Muhammad Shuaib Raza Qādirī . He remains active in both religious and national issues.


He was born on the 17th of Ramadan Al Kareem, 1420 AH (1999 AD) in Mahallah Shahgarh Baheri Bareilly. This was the fifth birth of the family of Shuaib e Millat, so the relatives were extremely happy. After the birth, Tāj al-Sharī`ah `Allāmah Akhtar Razā named the newborn ‘Muhammad’ but agreed on calling him ‘Kaif Razā Qadirī’.

His lineage is as followed: Muhammad Kaif Razā Qadirī, the son of Shuaib e Millat, the son of Uvais e Millat, the son of Murtaza Raza Khan, the grandson of the Brother of A`lā Hazrat Ustad e Zaman Allama Mawlana Hasan Raza Barelvi.(may there be mercy and favor upon them).

Amongst the family of A`lā Hazrat, the one who benefited most from his relation to his ancestors is his (Muhammad Kaif Razā Qadirī) father, Nabira e A`lā Hazrat wa Ustad e Zaman Muhammad Shuaib Raza Qadirī. After him it is, he, Huzur Kaif e Millat `Muhammad Kaif Razā Khān Qādirī who benefited the most due to his lineage from his mother being through leading to Mujaddid e Islām A`lā Hazrat Imām Ahmad Razā Khān Qādirī, Muhaddith e Bareillvī. This connection is a great honor.

The reason this relation is so honorable is that the beloved grandson of A`lā Hazrat & Ustad e Zaman, Huzūr `Mawlana `Kaif Razā Khān’s (may his shadow be prolonged) predecessor is Qutb e Waqt Mawlānā Razā `Alī Khān (may mercy be upon him). He was very well-known in the sciences of Fiqh and Tasawwuf. The Qutb e Waqt was a person of countless qualities such as his pertinent speech, immediate ‘salām’, piety, contentment, clemency, humility, abstraction, and uniqueness. He is the biological grandfather of Mujaddid e Islām, A`lā Hazrat Imām Ahmad Razā Khān Qādirī (Allāh is pleased with him).

The exegesis by the Mufassirūn (tafsīr experts) on the āyah “وكان أبوهما صالحا” (and their father was a righteous individual) of sūrah al-Kahf states that the father’s name was ‘Kāshih’ and he was a pious individual. Hazrat Muhammad bin Munkadir (may Allāh’s mercy be upon him) states, “through the good deed of an individual, Allāh protects his offspring, then their offspring, then their offspring, the individual’s family and his neighbors” (Tafsīr al-Khāzin, al-Kahf, Āyah 82, 3/221). Scholars say that the individual was the eighth or tenth great-grandfather of the children (Fatāwā Razawīyah, 23/240). Referring to this exegesis, A`lā Hazrat states, “There have only been four generations between Qutb e Zamān `Allāmah Razā `Alī Khān and this Faqīr (Ahmad Raza)”. What A’lā Hazrat is pointing out here is that if the blessings of a righteous individual of Banū Isrā’īl ran for ten generations, imagine how far the blessings of a righteous individual of the Muhammadan nation (Salla Allāhu `Alayhi wa Sallam) go. Huzūr Kaif e Millat `Mawlana `Kaif Razā Khān Qādirī is only the seventh descendant of his great-grandfather, Qutb e Zamān `Allāmah Razā `Alī Khān.<>/p

During his infancy, Uvais e Millat `Nabira e A`lā Hazrat wa Ustad e Zaman `Muhammad Uvais Raza Khan Qadirī (Allāh is pleased with him) received special spiritual blessings from Huzūr Tāj al-Sharī`ah Muftī Muhammad Akhtar Razā Khān Qādirī Azharī (may mercy be upon him) . In the same manner, Huzūr Uvais e Millat (Allāh is pleased with him) transferred these blessings to Huzūr Kaif e Millat while he was an infant.
