  • Sofia Noorbakshia, also called Nubakshia, is an Islamic sect and the Sufi order and way that claims to trace its direct spiritual lineage and chain to the Islamic prophet Muhammad, through Ali, Muhammad's cousin, son-in-law and the First Imam, via Imam Ali Al-Ridha. In contrast, most other Sufi paths trace their lineage through Ali. This order became famous as Nurbakshi after Shah Syed Muhammad Nurbakhsh Qahistani who was attached with the Kubrawiya Sufi order.
