Branches of Kubrawiya order
Mir Sayyid Ali Hamadani was the leader of the Kubrawiyyah order and expanded in parts of today's India, Pakistan,Kashmir, Bangaladesh, China, and Central Asian countries in the 14th century. In Iran the Kubrawiya order was split into branches after Khwaja Ishaq Khatlani succeed the founder. Eventually, differences within the order had arisen between the two claimants to succeed the leadership in which one group called themselves the Nurbakshia group comprising the supporters of Nurbaksh while the other group supported Barzish Abadi who was based in Mashhad.
The Noorbakshia Order
The Noorbakhshiya has emerged in the 15th century in Iran as a splinter group of the Kubrawiya Sufi order. A similar controversy has later developed about the religious affiliation of Syed Muhammad Noorbakhsh who had been a disciple of Mir Sayyid Ali Hamadani’s principal successor Khwaja Ishaq Khatlani and who is being regarded as the founder of the Kubrawiya.
The Dahabiyya Order
This order has been attributed to Syed Abdullah Barzish Abadi and it spread during first years of Safavid dynasty first in Khorasan, then in Shiraz.
