The khuddam of khwaja Shaib (R.A) known as "Syedzadgan" trace their descent from HAZRAT KHWAJAA SYED FAKHRUDDIN AHMAD GURDEZI (R.A) through his sons, Khwaja Masood, Khwaja Syed Mahoob Bahlol and Khwaja Syed Ibrahim. Thus the ‘Khadims’ are performing their religious duties as their fore – fathers had done in the past . They served the Mazar-e-Pak (Shrine) and pray also on behalf of those unable to come to Ajmer and have faith in Khwaja Sahib and are desirous of obtaining his blessings. Their rights to serve the shrine, to perform religious rituals and arrange spiritual functions and to receive all kinds of Nazar are hereditary and have also been judicially recognized. The documentary evidences in the ‘ Malfoozat’ (sayings) of Chishtia order and historical literature, Shahi Faramin, Sanads etc. (imperial orders) Jagirs, honors and rewards conferred upon them from time to time not only by Muslim Rulers but also many Hindu Rajas and Christians of India, which was also conferred by the British Government during their succeeding regimes indicate that they are the real custodians of the shrines, as the whole management, control of all the affairs, inside the tomb (Gumbad Mubarak) of the shrine , are exclusively in their hands, Although Khadims have faced a number of revolutions and changes of Government, but under all circumstances and worst political setup reavals that they kept themselves attached to the shrine and performed all their traditional duties and services

When Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty (R.A) proceeded for India, his Pee-o-Murshid (spiritual mentor) HAZRAT KHWAJA USMAN HARUNI(R.A) asked him to take one of his blood relation HAZRAT KHWAJAA SYED FAKHRUDDIN AHMAD GURDEZI (R.A) along with him. HAZRAT KHWAJAA SYED FAKHRUDDIN AHMAD GURDEZI (R.A) the Khadim-e-khas used to attend Hazrat Gharib Nawaz (R.A) through out the day and night in and out, therefore, he and his descendants the present khadim community took pride and deemed it an honor to be called as "KHADIM" of Hazart Gharib Nawaz (R.A)

HAZRAT KHWAJAA SYED FAKHRUDDIN AHMAD GURDEZI (R.A) stayed with Gharib Nawaz (R.A) upto his last breath and when Khwaja Sahib (R.A) kept himself busy in prayer and meditation or in seclusion for a number of days he looked after his affairs and management of Khangah and Langar Khana. HAZRAT KHWAJAA SYED FAKHRUDDIN AHMAD GURDEZI (R.A) died in Ajmer, on 25th of Rajab 642 A.H. /1245 (nearly a decade after the "Wissal" death of Hazart Gharib Nawaz (R.A) and was buried as "Tosh-e-Khana" (Toshak Khana). His annual urs, is celebrated on the 25th Rajab, with all religious ceremonies by the Khuddam Khwaja Sahib (Syedzadgan)
