In four of the great religions (Judaism,
Christianity, Islam, and Bahá'í) there is an expectation that the
Messiah should come from the lineage of King David and Prophet
Muhammad (a Sayyed).
This is obvious in Judaism as Christians have already tried to
connect Christ's genealogy to King David. In
Christianity, the Messiah is prophesied as The Lion of the Tribe
(which King David also was from - Juda) who will open the Book
Sealed with the Seven Seals (Revelation 5:5 and 6).
In Islam, it is Prophesied that the Mahdi (their Expected
One) will be from the lineage of Prophet Muhammad, as do the
Bahá'ís. He will be born as a Sayyed, as a descendent
of Prophet Muhammad through His daughter Fatima and His son-in-law
Ali, the fourth Imam of Islam.
Maitreya has fulfilled these
In this page we will explain Maitreya's genealogy itself, discuss
it in depth, and look at some of the implications His genealogy has.

Maitreya (The Lion of the Tribe Of Judah, a Sayyed - God Is With Him
and His family)
The first section of his genealogy
chart is a list of the generations from Adam (Atman) to Abram
(Abraham). In the days of these generations, several significant events
occurred, such as the creation of man in the physical manifested
world, creating man and woman, the fall of man, the removal of
man's occult powers, the division of the earth (and the
scattering of the Great Souls and Spiritual knowledge), the
Flood of Noah, and the emergence of the five classes of the
human (the sons of Noah). It is important to realize in this part of
genealogy that Maitreya is the child of Shem (as was also
Abram or Abraham) - and a true Spiritualist (for more detail,
The Holiest Of The Holies (THOTH), The Last Testament
the section after the flood of Noah).
second section of genealogy is a list of the generations of
Abraham through His son Isaac to King David. From this section we can see that
goes back to Abraham through the tribe of Judah and King David.
Maitreya is prophesied to sit on the throne of
David; He could easily do that if He is a descendent of King
Also, it is important to note that the
genealogy of the priests of Israel from Aaron eventually
intermarry with the kings of Judah, and so Maitreya
is also a true Priest in this sense as well.
Briefly listed here are the generations of the priests of
Levi (the sons of Jacob and Aaron) until they marry into the
line of the Davidic Kings:
Levi, Kohath, Aram, Aaron, Eleezer, Phinehus, Abishua, Bukki,
Uzzi, Zerahiah, Meraioth, Ameriah, Zadok, Ahimoaz, Azariah,
Ahitubt, Zadok, Shallum, Hikiah, Azariah, Seraiah, Jehozadek,
Esa (Jesus), Zarababel the King of Judeah and Persia. Maitreya
therefore, exhibits the scepter and kingly qualities mentioned
(read the book:
CHILDREN OF ABRAM (ABRAHAM), "ALL PROPHECIES ARE FULFILLED"
The third section shows that Maitreya
is the son of David through his son Solomon.
Solomon took the throne after his father, so Maitreya is
the descendent of the kingly branch of David, and from the same genealogy as Esa (Jesus)
the Christ. After the death of Solomon, the kingdom of Israel divided
into two and the genealogical line we follow is from Solomon's
son Rehoboam. The
kingdom stayed divided until King Shealtiel.
During his reign in Judah, the Assyrians invaded and were
able to conquer the northern kingdoms.
From the generations after Zerubbabel (Shealtiel's son - Haggai 1:1)
until Bostanai, the kings of Judah were known as exilarchs who
ruled with little or no authority in exile, until the time of Zerubbabel who became the King
of Judah by the benevolence of King Cyrus The Great. After that period, the lineage
of the kings of Judah ends in the Bible, but even in
exile there has been a King on the throne of David.
King Bostanai (the last of the exilarchs) intermarried
with the Persian kings and their child, Shahari Surhab, became
the King of Persia, and subsequently the King of Judah.
From Shahari Surhab, the genealogy can be traced to Abbas Khan.
The paragraphs which follow are a much more in-depth
description of the generations from Abbas Khan, the King of
Persia, to Maitreya Himself.
Imam Quli Beg-e Afshar (noted as Abbas
Khan or Nadir Shah on the genealogy chart) was the son of Nadir
Quli (Imam Muhammad Quli Beg (Big) Khan) and was King of Persia.
He had one wife (Khanum) who died after 1737, and she
bore two sons.
Nadir Quli Beg-e Afshar (born in 1102/1688), who
ascended the throne as H.M. Nadir Shah, Shahanshah of
General H.H. Muhammad Ibrahim Khan-e Afshar,
The history found at the following
website states emphatically that Lutf (Lotf) Ali Khan was the
son of Shahrukh who was given to Sayyed Hasan for marriage to
his daughter (http://www.ismaili.net/histoire/history07/ history749.html,
"'After Nader's death, Sayyed Abu'l Hasan took a winter
residence in Kirman itself, retaining his house at Babak for the
Khan accorded him great respect, even marrying his son Lotf
(Lutf) Ali Khan to the Sayyed's (Imam's) daughter.' (Ibid. p.
genealogy to Nadir Shah is as follows:
Muhammad Quli Beg Khan Nadir Shah Ridagholi
(Rezagholi) Beg Shah Rokh Lotfali Khan (son in law of Sayyed
Hasan Beg) Karimtool Muhammad Zaman
Khan Baba Beg Karimtool II Allahverdi Beg Agha Beg Karim Beg Habibullah Beg Aghajani Beg Mullah Bahram Mullah Abdullah Abdulkarim Maitreya
ancestral line is from Nadir Shah. Since Nadir Shah's ancestry
has already been proven to connect him to King David, Maitreya's lineage, therefore, also goes back to King David
It makes Maitreya a potential candidate to be, "The
Lion Of Judah."
Since He has fulfilled all of the prophecies (as we see in the
prophecy pages) we can be sure, with
certainty, that He indeed is the Promised One; He is The Lion
Of The Tribe of Judah, The Messiah.
Maitreya is a Sayyed. Sayyed
is a title that is only given to those who are from the lineage
of Prophet Muhammad. In Islam, it is Prophesied that the
(their Expected One) will be from the lineage of Prophet
Muhammad, and this is also an expectation of the Babis/Bahá'ís. He will be born as a
Sayyed, as a descendent of Prophet Muhammad through His
daughter Fatima and His son-in-law Ali, the fourth Imam of
Islam. Those who are
called Imams or
Sayyeds in His Genealogy are Sayyeds (you can not
become an Imam if you are not descended from Prophet Muhammad).
There are many such people in Maitreya's genealogy (such
as Imam Muhammad Quli Beg Khan, father of Nadir Shah).
Therefore, Maitreya is also from the lineage of Prophet
Muhammad, a Sayyed.
These genealogical connections to
King David (Abraham and Adam), and to Prophet Muhammad, should
satisfy the expectations of at least three great religions of the
world, namely: Judaism, Christianity, Islam. This also
should satisfy the expectation of the followers of Bab
(Bahá'u'lláh) that "He Whom God Shall Make Manifest" is a descendent of
Prophet Muhammad and King David (as they have tried to prove
about Bahá'u'lláh, the founder of the Bahá'í faith)!
Babis were the original followers of Bab (the original founder
of the Bab/Bahá'í Faith!).
With fulfillment of all the
Prophecies, opening of the
Seven Seals and the
Book Sealed with the Seven Seals,
this genealogy - also see Maitreya'sgenetic test results), the rest of humanity also should not have any
problem recognizing that the Expected One is on earth!
The information on the ancestral connection from Nadir Shah to
Maitreya (Chart From Nadir Shah To Maitreya)
has been gathered by asking elders in Iran, who remember Maitreya's family tree, and by the use of the book:
Nadir Shah's Children, by Abdolhossain Navai, published
by Zarin Publishing company in Iran, 1989. The book was
found in the Iranian Parliament (Majles) library in Tehran.
of Isaac Karim) married Bayanue, daughter
of Mo-Yen-Cho or Moyunchur, King of Uighur whose wife
was Ning-Kuo, daughter of Su-Zong, the only female
Emperor of China - Tang Dyn. This also
Maitreya to the Chinese dynasties! Many
Buddhists are waiting for Maitreya to come from
the Far East (where Buddhism is the strongest)! In
fact, Emperor Wu (Su-Zong) encouraged Buddhist
philosophy (religions!) over Taoism and Confucius
philosophies, and built many Buddhist temples and
hospitals. Many believed that she was The
Maitreya. She was not The Maitreya; it
seems, however, she surely had a part in
appearance on earth. This also might help some
Buddhists in recognizing that the Maitreya we
represent is the One they are waiting for!
NOTE 1: Most
of the information in the paragraph above has
come from a
source that wants to stay anonymous. Therefore we
do not consider the accuracy of the information above
as verified by the Mission. If anyone can verify this
information for us, we would surely appreciate it.
We assume it is accurate!
For more information on
the connections between China and Persia, here
are some URLs (or do a web search for "Persians in China"
Another tidbit of information that might help those who
want to find more about Maitreya's
Wikipedia: "After the Persians had forced the
Bokhara to submit, Nader wanted Reza [his son]
to marry the khan's elder daughter because she was a
descendant of his hero Genghis Khan, but Reza flatly
refused and Nader married the girl himself."
This piece of information might connect Maitreya's
genealogy to Genghis Khan. Also since Genghis Khan, and
the Mongols in general, married many Chinese princesses,
this again can be another route to connect Maitreya to
all these leaders from the Far East.
Further study of the genealogy of these
people is needed to find out if there are connections between them
and Nader Shah!
