This title is now used by the descendents of the Sufi masters who are mostly Pirs, politicians and landlords in southern Punjab and Sindh in Pakistan. Hazrat Abbas, respectable maternal uncle of Prophet Muhammad, usually visited Mecca and Medina. Prophet Muhammad received him and always addressed him with the title of Makhdoom where they served . From that time Arab people descended from that family are especially called "Makhdoom" which means one who is served. Quraishis in Punjab and Sindh provinces of Pakistan use this title as sacerdotal dignity no references in this regard. A Makhdoom is a respectable person who dedicated his whole life to Islam, the Quran and the Sunnah.
