Biography of Maulana Zayn al-Din Abu Bakr Taybadi

Maulana Zayn al-Din Abu Bakr Taybadi was one of the famous mystics of the eighth century AH who lived in Khorasan. This great custom died at the end of Muharram in 791 AH. His tomb is in Taybad.

Most historians and biographers have mentioned the name of Zayn al-Din Taybadi as Zayn al-Din Abu Bakr Taybadi in their books and treatises.


However, the author of the book Majalis al-Mu’minin believes that the name of this man is the same as the name of his great ancestor Sheikh Fazel Maulana Zainuddin Ali Taybadi. Many have also called him a follower of the great cleric and disciple of Ahmad Namqi Jami in the Oveyssi sect and in other sciences, including the students of Maulana Nizamuddin Heravi.


Sheikh Jami has written in one of his books that Sheikh Zayn al-Din Abu Bakr Taybadi has been going to Ahmad Jami‘s tomb barefoot for seven years because of his heartfelt devotion to Sheikh Ahmad Jam. At a distance, he stood in front of the sheikh’s tomb and recited the Qur’an, and each time he shortened the distance until he reached Torbat-e-Sheikh after seven years.
