The Zahediyeh Sufi Order was founded by Zahed Gilani of Lahijan. As a precursor to the Safaviyya tariqa, which was yet to culminate in the Safavid dynasty, the Zahediyeh Order and its murshid, Sheikh Zahed Gilani, holds a distinct place in the history of Iran.

The order traces its origins back to Zarrīn, one of the six Mangur (tribe) ancestral grandmothers, as well as Muhammad.[1]
