Hazrat Khwaja Syed Mohammad Badshah Qadri-ul-Chishti Yamani Raichuri Rahmatullah’alaih (1903 (1324 Hijri) – 1978), was a Sufi saint of the Chisti order in India, known commonly as Badshah Quadri or Badesha Qadri, who preached universal brotherhood and peace.. Badesha Quadri was born in Raichur in Karnataka in a Sayyid family that migrated from Yemen decades ago. His family trace their descent from Hasan bin Ali, the first grandson of Muhammad.
At an early age, Badesha Quadri became a disciple of his paternal uncle Shah Nabi Mohiuddeen Quadri, of the Chisti order, who was then a renowned Chisti elder. He later became a disciple of Hazrath Shaikh Karimullah Shah Qadri. Before Karimullah died, he passed the role of Pir, the leadership of the Qadiriyyah and Chishti traditions, to Badesha Quadri. Badesha Quadri is entombed in Halkatta Shareef outside of Wadi in Gulbarga District of Karnataka. His work is continued there by his son and successor Hazrat Syed Ibrahim Shah Qadri even today. There is an annual festival or urs for Badesha Quadri and thousands of his followers travel to Halkatta Shareef. The urs marks the anniversary of the saint’s death. The term urs literally means wedding with the divine.
