The Nishapuri Sada'at (Sayeds) of Barabanki (and adjoining areas of Kintoor, Fatehpur, Jarwal and Lucknow). They are Kazmi or Musavi Sayeds; that is they claim descent from the Prophet through his daughter's line and the line of the seventh Imam of the Shi'a Muslims, Musa al-Kazem. They came in India originally from Nishapur a town near Mashhad in northeastern Iran.[8] Two brothers Sayed Sharafu'd-Din and Sayed Muhammed in 14th century forsaked Nishapur, Iran for Awadh, India in the time of Hulagu Khan the Il-Khanid Mongol ruler.[9] Sayed Alauddin Kazmi have said to be accompanied these two brothers in their movement from Iran, he later moved to Tehsil Fatehpur. The grave of Sayed Alauddin Kazmi is situated in Kintoor. The Kazmis of Fatehpur are his descendants. These Nishapuri Sayeds of Kintoor spread to adjoining localities of Barabanki e.g. Fatehpur, and even to neighbouring districts e.g. Jarwal in Bahraich district and in Lucknow. These Nishapuri Sayeds produced several outstanding Shia Muslim religious scholars in 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.[10]
