The male lineage of the Safavid family given by the oldest manuscript of the Safwat as-Safa is:”(Shaykh) Safi al-Din Abul-Fatah Ishaaq the son of Al-Shaykh Amin al-din Jebrail the son of al-Saaleh Qutb al-Din Abu Bakr the son of Salaah al-Din Rashid the son of Muhammad al-Hafiz al-Kalaam Allah the son of Javaad the son of Pirooz al-Kurdi al-Sanjani (Piruz Shah Zarin Kolah the Kurd of Sanjan)” similar to the ancestry of Sheykh Safi al-Din’s father-in-law, Sheikh Zahed Gilani, who also hailed from Sanjan, in Greater Khorassan(RW)….
