Shāh Kāshān 8 items
Shāh Kāshān, known also as Sayyid Muḥammad Iṣfahānī, is a figure that is often claimed as an ancestor among the families of the khalīfahs, or those who served immediately under the pīrs and were responsible for much of the day-to-day religious work of the Ismāʿīlī community of Badakhshan. Most traditions claim that he traveled from Iran to Badakhshan as a companion to Shāh Khāmūsh in the twelfth century (Badakhshī and Surkh-Afsar; Bobrinskoĭ; Gross), although the late Badakhshani scholar Abusaid Shokhumorov, based on Bahār-i Badakhshān of Sayyid ʿAbd al-Karim al-Ḥusaynī (Ḥusaynī, 10; Shokhumorov, 7-11), states that he came to Badakhshan in the sixteenth century (see also his introduction to 11404444).
