His Holiness Mir Kamal –e-din Ati’atullah, the First, was the successor and vicegerent of his noble father Shah Habib-e-din Mohebullah the First , after His Holiness the 20th Qutb was Mir Shah Borhan-e-din Khalilullah the Second who undertook the guidance of worshippers and after him according to the commandment of Mir Shah Borhan-e-din the 21st Qutb Mir Shah Shams-e-din Mohammad the First sat on the throne of caliphate of His Holiness and was engaged in the guidance of worshippers. And after the termination of the era of His Holiness, the 22nd Qutb His Holiness Mir Shah Habib-e-din Mohebullah the Second, was assigned to the position of guidance and spiritual initiation of the people and since His Holiness reached the appointed end of his life's duration, handed over his caliphate and guidance of the people to the 23rd Qutb Mir Shah Shams-e-din Mohammad the Second. And His Holiness after him, appointed the 24th Qutb Mir Shah Kamal-e-din Ati’atullah the Second as his successor. And His Holiness Mir Shah Kamal-e-din handed over the post of caliphate and guidance position after himself to the 25th Qutb Mir Shah Shams-e-din Mohammad the Third. And His Holiness appointed the 26th Qutb, His Holiness Sheikh Mahmood Deccani as his successor and guidance of the worshippers. And His Holiness Sheikh Mahmood appointed and handed over his caliphate and guidance of the worshippers to Sheikh Shams-e-din Deccani, the 27th Qutb. And His Holiness Sheikh Shams-e-din is the 27th Qutb of the Marufiyeh spiritual order.
And because all these sublime great ones were residents in India and during their felicity time, Iran was under the influence and superficial spiritual guidance and dominance of the Safavid dynasty and as there was no relation between India and Iran, therefore, there are no records registered for some of the great ones in the contemporary Iranian writings, nor afterwards. And the author with all efforts and endeavor, unfortunately could not find any record of few of them, even though Indian friends were requested to help out and up to this date no results was obtained, and with hope from the interior heart of those sublime nobles, would make me successful to prepare biographies of each of them and attach to this document and now pay attention to the biography of the 26th Qutb, His Holiness Sheikh Mahmood Deccani.
