Hazrat Syed Badiuddin Zinda Shah Madar

Hazrat Syed Badiuddin Zinda Shah MadarThe Madaria are members of a Sufi order (tariqat) popular in India, especially in Uttar Pradesh, the Mewat region, Bihar and Bengal, as well as in Nepal and Bangladesh. Known for its syncretic aspects, lack of emphasis on external religious practice and focus on internal dhikr (zikr), it was initiated by the Sufi saint Syed Badiuddin Zinda Shah Madar, called “Qutb-ul-Madar”, and is centered on his shrine (dargah) at Makanpur, Kanpur district, Uttar Pradesh, India.

Originating from the Taifuria order, as his Peer, spiritual teacher was Bayazid Tayfur Al-Bistami, Madariya reached its zenith in the late Mughal period between 15th to 17th century, and gave rise to new orders as Madar’s disciples spread through the northern plains of India, into Bengal. As with most Sufi orders, its name Madariya has been created by adding a Nisba to the name of its founder Madar, leading to Madariya, sometimes spelled as Madaria, though it is also referred as Tabaqatiya.

The Dargah, or the tomb of Hazrat Badiuddin Zinda Shah Madar, is located at Makanpur, near Kanpur city, in Uttar Pradesh state, India. It is visited by thousands of visitors every month and especially during the annual Urs celebrations.
