The Naqvi sadah (Arabic: السادة النقاويين‎) are people with the last name "Naqvi" and who are direct descendants of the prophet Muhammad through the lineage of the Imam Ali al-Naqi. Some Naqvis trace their ancestry back to Ali al-Naqi through his son Ja'far al-Tawwab (The Repenter), while others trace it through his other son, Husain ul Asghar.[1]

The descendants of Ali al-Naqi are primarily found in South Asia but are spread across the globe.

Sons of Imam Ali Naqi (a.s)

The difference of opinion with regard to number of sons of Imam Ali Al-Naqi is acceptable but not confirmed. For reference quote of "Lawat Ibn Abi Mikhnaf/Makhnaf" is available who describes son names (1) Imam Hassan Askari (2) Syed Muhammad (3) Syed Hussain (4) Syed Abdullah (5) Syed Zaid (6) Syed Mussa (7) Syed Jaffar also known as Jaffar al Zaki or Jaffar-us-Sani. This statement of 7 sons has also been made by Moulvi Syed Basheer Hussain compiler of book "Shajrat-e-Saddat-e-Amroha". These seven names have also been referred in by the writer of book "Anwar-e-Alsadat" remarking the point of controversy in number of sons. In addition, there are atleast two personalities whose hand written pedigree from top (Imam Naqi, a.s) to bottom have been accepted and annexed to book. These pedigrees confirm the sons of Imam Ali Naqi Al Hadi as seven in number [2]
