Abduttayyeb Zakiuddin

Syedna Abduttayyeb Zakiuddin [1] (death: 2 Rabi-ul-Awwal 1041 AH /1633 AD, Birth : 8th Safar-ul-Muzaffar 972 AH), Ahmedabad, India) was the 29th Da'i al-Mutlaq (Absolute Missionary) of the Dawoodi Bohra. Dawoodi Bohras claim that he was the successor to the 28th Dai Syedna Sheikh Aadam Safiuddin to the religious post amid succession dispute which resulted in the formation of the Alavi Bohra sect who consider Shamshuddin Ali ibn Ibrahim as the successor to the post of Dai al Mutlaq. Ali was the grandson of the 28th Dawoodi Bohra Dai Syedna Sheikh Aadam Safiuddin. Syedna Abduttayyeb Zakiuddin appointed or gave nass to Syedna Ali Shamshuddin as his successor.
