Didn't realize it's a qaaf.
After reading this thread, I realized it was sadQe!!!
Can Sadiq also imply a true and devoted friend?
... Siddiqi is a common South Asian Muslim last name. I've also met several Sadiqs.
I think he meant Saadiq as a first name.PG, I guess they are Saadiqs /Sadiqs and presumably not Sadiqee (صادقی).
The J'afaries and the Kazmis would be feeling so left out!...In Indo-Pak the most abundant group of syeds are Zaidi syeds. Others include, Alavi / Alvi, Rizvi (sometimes Razavi / Rizavi etc.), Naqvi, Abidi (phonetically Aabidi), Musavi etc.I assume you have met / heard of some of these too.
