§ 1321. Sulṭān M. Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh1 “Qādirī”, the eldest son of the Mogul Emperor S̲h̲āh-Jahān (1037–68/1628–58) and Mumtāz-Maḥall, was born at Ajmēr in Ṣafar 1024/March 1615. In S̲h̲aʿbān 1042/Feb. 1633 he married Nādirah Bēgam, the daughter of his uncle, Sulṭān Parwēz. From 1043/1633, when he received his first manṣab (12,000/6,000) and the sarkār of Ḥiṣār as his fief, he was rapidly promoted and eventually reached unprecedented rank (60,000/40,000) in the State Service. He was appointed to several governorships (Allahabad in 1055/1645, the Panjāb in 1057/1647, Gujrāt (Gujarat) in 1059/1649, Multān, and Kābul in 1062/1652), but these provinces were administered for him by deputies, and Lahore was the only provincial capital to which he ever paid a visit of any length. In 1063/1653 he was in command at the unsuccessful siege of Qandahār, which forms the subject of Ras̲h̲īd K̲h̲ān’s Laṭāʾif al-ak̲h̲bār (see no. 733 supra). Although he had been recognized by S̲h̲āh-Jahān as heir to the throne, his claim was disputed in 1067/1657, when S̲h̲āh-Jahān fell ill, by his younger brothers, S̲h̲āh-S̲h̲ujāʿ, Aurangzēb and Murād-Bak̲h̲s̲h̲. He was twice defeated in battle by Aurangzēb, first at Samūgaṛh, near Āgrah, in Ramaḍān 1068/June 1658 and then at Ajmēr in Jumādā ii 1069/March 1659. On 26 D̲h̲ū ’l-Ḥijjah 1069/14 September 1659 he was executed at Delhi by order of Aurangzēb, who had obtained from the ʿulamāʾ a fatwā declaring him to be a kāfir.

Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh and his sister Jahān-ārā were, according to the latter (see ocm. xiii/4 p. 1616–17), the first of Tīmūr’s line to set their feet upon the path of K̲h̲udā-ṭalabī and Ḥaqq-jūʾī. Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh himself says (Sakīnat al-auliyāʾ, Urdu trans. p. 53) that darwīs̲h̲es had always fascinated him and that much of his time had been spent in seeking them out. Then on the 10th,2 or the 29th,3 of D̲h̲ū ’l-Ḥijjah 1049, at the age of twenty-five, he had been admitted to the society of a saint (ēk dōst i K̲h̲udā4 kī ṣuḥbat mēn phunc̲h̲ā) and had been treated by him with great kindness.5 That which others used to obtain after a month he had obtained on the first night, and in a month that for which others needed a year. He had reached immediately and without austerities an aim usually attained only through years of severe discipline (sālhā-sāl kē mujāhadoṅ aur riyāḍatōṅ sē). Of Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh’s works the best known by far is the Safīnat al-auliyāʾ completed in 1049/1640, which may be described as a standard work of reference. Somewhat similar in content, but of narrower scope and much less known is the Sakīnat al-auliyāʾ completed in 1052/1642–3. The Risālah i Ḥaqq-numā, written in 1055/1645, is a small Ṣūfī tract.6 The Ḥasanāt al-ʿārifīn, composed in 1062/1652 is an annotated collection of ecstatic or paradoxical utterances (s̲h̲aṭaḥāt or s̲h̲aṭḥīyāt7) ascribed to various mystics.8 A work entitled Rumūz i taṣawwuf, which is described by Arberry as a catechism of Ṣūfī doctrine, was published with an Urdu translation at Lahore in [1923*]. Whether this is a genuine work of Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh’s and whether it contains a date are matters for investigation. The works of Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh’s last years are a remarkable series resulting from an interest in Hindu mystīcīsm and a desire to reconcile Hinduism and Islām. Apparently the earliest literary outcome of this interest was not actually a work of his but a record of some seventy questions posed by him to the Hindu ascetic Bābā Lāl9 and the answers given by the latter.10 In 1065/1654–5 he completed the Majmaʿ al-baḥrain,11 in the preface12 to which he says that in his intercourse with Hindu faqīrs he had ascertained that their divergence from the Ṣūfīs was merely verbal and that he had written the work with the object of reconciling the two systems. In 1067/1657 was completed at Delhi after six months’ labour the Sirr i akbar or Sirr al-asrār, a translation of 5013 or 5214 Upanishads undertaken by Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh with the help of some pandits of Benares.15 These works were congenial to him because “although he had perused the Pentateuch, the Gospels, the Psalms, and other sacred books, he had nowhere found the doctrine of Tauḥīd, or Pantheism, explicitly taught, but in the Beds (Vedas) and more especially in the Upnikhats (Upanishads), which contain their essence”.16 Another work, the Ṭarīqat al-ḥaqīqah, described by Edwards as a tract in prose and verse on the Vēdānta philosophy, was published at Gūjrānwālah in [1895°*]. An Urdu translation by Aḥmad ʿAlī Batālawī appeared at Lahore in [1923*]. A translation of the Yōgavāsishṭ’ha (Tarjamah i Jōg Bās̲h̲is̲h̲t) made in 1066/1655–6 (by a certain Ḥabīb Allāh according to Ethé 2927) under the auspices of Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh is preserved in several mss.17 There is also a translation of the Bhagavad-gītā, called in some mss. by the title Āb i zindagī,18 which is ascribed on very doubtful authority19 to Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh. According to Qanungo (i p. 139) the Gulzār i ḥāl, Walī Rām’s translation of the Prabōd’ha-c̲h̲andrōdaya (see no. 620 1st par. supra), was written “for the use of Dara Shukoh”. No authority is cited for this statement. In any case the Gulzār i ḥāl was not completed until 1073/1662–3, i.e. more than three years after Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh’s death.

Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh wrote poetry in which he used the tak̲h̲alluṣ “Qādirī”. His dīwān is mentioned by “Sark̲h̲wus̲h̲”, who describes it as short, and also by Kis̲h̲an C̲h̲and “Ik̲h̲lāṣ”. G̲h̲ulām-Sarwar Lāhaurī had seen a copy of it (K̲h̲azīnat al-aṣfiyāʾ i p. 17415), but it is now extremely rare.20 Finally it may be noted that Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh was a calligraphist. Two pages from an autograph ms. of his Safīnat al-auliyāʾ are reproduced in ocm. x/3, where they face p. 114, and other specimens of his writing are in existence.21

§ 1322. Jahān-ārā Bēgam, sometimes called simply Begam Ṣāḥib32 or Bēgam Ṣāḥibah33 by contemporary historians, was the second child of S̲h̲āh-Jahān and Mumtāz-Maḥall. She was born on 21 Ṣafar 1023/23 March 1614, almost exactly a year before her eldest brother, Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh (for whom see no. 1321 supra). Devoted to her father, whom she attended in his captivity, and also to Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh, she shared the latter’s interest in Ṣūfism, and was initiated into the Qādirī order by his pīr, Mullā S̲h̲āh,34 early in 1050/1650, when she and her father were on a visit to Kas̲h̲mīr (ocm. xiii/4 (Aug. 1937) pp. 14–15). “S̲h̲āh’s” opinion of her (“She has attained to so extraordinary a development of mystical knowledge that she is worthy of being my representative”) and her description of one of her own mystical experiences are quoted (from the Nusk̲h̲ah i aḥwāl i S̲h̲āhī) by Macdonald in The religious attitude and life in Islam, p. 205,35 and thence by Qanungo in Dara Shukoh, i pp. 351–2. In spite of her Qādirī connections she had a fondness for the C̲h̲is̲h̲tī order:36 in the preface to the Muʾnis al-arwāḥ she calls herself a votary (murīdah) of Muʿīn al-Dīn C̲h̲is̲h̲tī and on her tomb she is described as a disciple of the saints of C̲h̲is̲h̲t. She died unmarried in Ramaḍān 1092/1681 and was buried at Delhi in a tomb built by herself,37 and still standing, to the south of the tomb of Niẓām al-Dīn Auliyā (for whom see no. 1259 4th footnote supra). “The events of Jahánárá’s life, such as they are, have suffered on the one hand from sentiment which adorns her ʿwith every virtue that a woman possesses’; and on the other by the court-tattle of Bernier which I need not repeat here.”38

§ 1323. S̲h̲aik̲h̲ Badr al-Dīn b.

(such dates as 1069/1658–9, 1071/1660–1 and 1076/1665–6, which occur in Ivanow-Curzon 78, being presumably later insertions), and divided into a muqaddimah, twenty-eight d̲h̲ikrs (of which the first twenty-one are short notices of the early saints, etc., from the Prophet to Naṣīr al-Dīn C̲h̲irāg̲h̲ i Dihlī (cf. no. 1259 1st par. last footnote supra), while the twenty-second to the twenty-eighth are much longer notices of the local saints of Barnāwah and Rāprī,60 namely Badr al-Dīn b.

§ 1331. Niẓām al-Dīn Aḥmad b. M. Ṣāliḥ Ṣiddīqī Ḥusainī lived in the time of S̲h̲āh-Jahān and composed in 1060/1650 a work on poetical figures entitled Majmaʿ al-ṣanāʾiʿ.62

§ 1332. Tawakkul Bēg Kūlālī63 was a son of the Qūs̲h̲-bēgī to Iʿtiqād K̲h̲ān, Governor of Kas̲h̲mīr. At the age of sixteen64 he became a disciple of the Qādirī saint, Mullā S̲h̲āh Badak̲h̲s̲h̲ī,65 who was then resident in Kas̲h̲mīr, and he kept in touch with him, visiting him at intervals, until 1071/1660–1, when he saw his master for the last time. For a period anterior to 1053/1643–4 he was in the service of S̲h̲āh-S̲h̲ujāʿ, Governor of Bengal. In 1054/1644 he went with a letter of introduction from Mullā S̲h̲āh to Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh (see no. 1321 supra), who gave him the rank of dū-ṣadī and subsequently on several occasions sent him with messages to Mullā S̲h̲āh. After Aurangzēb’s accession in 1069/1659 he obtained a post in the government service at Kāngrah.

It seems likely that he is identical with Tawakkul Bēg b. Tūlak Beg,66 who in S̲h̲āh-Jahān’s 26th regnal year, a.h. 1063/1653, was sent by Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh, at that time Ṣūbah-dār of Kābul, to G̲h̲aznīn as Amīn and Waqāʾiʿ-nawīs and who at the request of S̲h̲ams̲h̲ēr K̲h̲ān Tarīn, the T’hānah-dār of G̲h̲aznīn, wrote the Shams̲h̲ēr-K̲h̲anī, an abridgment of Firdausī’s Shāh-nāmah (see Rieu ii 539–40, Ethé 883–90, etc.).

§ 1333. ʿAbd Allāh68 K̲h̲wēs̲h̲gī69 Qaṣūrī,70 i.e. G̲h̲ulām-Muʿīn al-Dīn ʿAbd Allāh known as al-K̲h̲alīfah al-K̲h̲wēs̲h̲gī al-C̲h̲is̲h̲tī (Ross-Browne 56), or “ ʿAbdallâh, known as ʿUbaid-allâh, with the epithet Khalîfah Ḥayy [read K̲h̲alīfah-jī]71 bin ʿAbd-alḥaḳḳ (known as ʿAbd-alḳâdir al-khwîshî [sic ?] alćishtî)” (Ethé 1271), or “ʿAbdu’l-lah Khalīfa-jī b. ʿAbdi’l-Ḥaqq, known as ʿAbdu’l-Qādir Khwīshagī” (Ivanow 273), or “ʿAbdu’l-lah Khwīshagī Chis̲h̲tī, surnamed Khalīfah, of Qaṣūr” (Ivanow 1294), or ʿUbaid Allāh known as (al-maʿrūf bah) ʿAbd Allāh al-K̲h̲wēs̲h̲gī al-C̲h̲is̲h̲tī, who used the tak̲h̲alluṣ “ʿUbaidī” (ocm. iii/4 p. 21), was born at Qaṣūr (Ross-Browne 56) and it was there that in S̲h̲āh-Jahān’s reign after finishing his studies (taḥṣīl i ʿulūm sē farāg̲h̲at pā-kar, ocm. iii/4 p. 231) he completed the first volume of his first commentary on Ḥāfiẓ, the Baḥr al-firāsah, which he had begun while still a student. The second and final volume was completed long afterwards at Bījāpūr (ocm. iii/4 p. 233). From the preface to his second commentary, the K̲h̲ulāṣat al-baḥr, also a production of his early life, it appears that “he was for a time attached to the Shaikh Maulânâ ʿAbd-alrashîd (known as Muḥammad Rashîd) Yuwânjî and afterwards in the service of72 Shaikh Pîr Muḥammad of Lakhnau” (Ethé 1271). In 1077/1666–7 he was at Aurangābād, where he had gone in the service of Dilēr K̲h̲ān,73 and it was there that he wrote the Ak̲h̲bār al-auliyāʾ (Islamic culture iii/3 p. 453). In 1133/1720–1, Muḥammad S̲h̲ah’s second regnal year, he was again at Qaṣūr, evidently towards the end of a long life, and there he wrote his Asrār i Mat̲h̲nawī at the instigation of two K̲h̲wēs̲h̲gī chiefs, Ḥasan [Ḥusain ?] K̲h̲ān and Saʿīd K̲h̲ān (Ross-Browne 56). In the preface to his Asrār i Mat̲h̲nawī u anwār i maʿnawī, a commentary on the first daftar of Rūmī’s Mat̲h̲nawī completed in 1133/1720–1 (mss.: Ross-Browne 56 (ah 1133/1721, perhaps autograph), Sprenger 373 (Mōtī Maḥall)) he gives a list of his earlier works, which is quoted verbatim by Sprenger. These are firstly three commentaries on the dīwān of Ḥāfiẓ, (1) Baḥr al-firāsah[in the preface of which S̲h̲āh-Jahān (ah 1037–68/1628–58) is praised. mss.: Kapūrt’halah 123 (see ocm. iii/4 p. 21), Peshawar 1028], (2) K̲h̲ulāṣat al-baḥr fī ’ltiqāṭ al-durar, a larger commentary (mss.: Āṣafīyah (transcribed by Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh, “who was a disciple of Sayyid Ādam Rasūl74 of Māwarāʾ al-Nahr as would appear from the colophon.” See Nad̲h̲īr Aḥmad 129), Ethé 1271), (3) Jāmiʿ al-baḥrain (no mss. recorded), then (4)Rāḥat al-as̲h̲bāḥ, a commentary on the Nuzhat al-arwāḥ [of Ḥusain b. ʿĀlim al-Ḥusainī] (no mss. recorded), (5) Mak̲h̲zan al-ḥaqāʾiq, a commentary on the Kanz al-daqāʾiq, (6) S̲h̲arḥ i ḤRF [sic ?] ʿāliyāt, and (7) Maʿārij al-wilāyatkih dar bayān i mas̲h̲āyik̲h̲ i Hindūstān-ast.” In this list he mentions neither the Ak̲h̲bār al-auliyāʾ nor the two Ṣūfī works Taḥqīq al-muḥaqqiqīn fī tadqīq al-mudaqqiqīn (Ivanow 1294 (1)) and Fawāʾid al-ʿās̲h̲iqīn (Ivanow 1294 (2)).

Ak̲h̲bār al-auliyāʾ min lisān al-aṣfiyāʾ, an account of K̲h̲wēs̲h̲gī and other saints written in 1077/1666–7 at Aurangābād and divided into six bābs ((1) dar bayān i aḥwāl i K̲h̲wēs̲h̲giyān, (2) dar bayān i mas̲h̲āyik̲h̲ i sāʾir i Afg̲h̲ānān, (3) dar bayān i aḥwāl i nisāʾ i ʿārifāt, (4) dar nasab i Afg̲h̲ānān u sabab i āmadan az Bait al-Maqdis ba-Kūhistān, (5) dar aḥwāl i mas̲h̲āyik̲h̲ i Qaṣūr u nawāḥī i ān, (6) dar aḥwāl i īn aḥqar i ʿibād Allāh (ʿAbd Allāh K̲h̲wēs̲h̲gī C̲h̲is̲h̲tī): Ivanow 273 (a.h. 1294/1877, transcribed at Qaṣūr for H.

§ 1349. M. Ḥabīb Allāh b. S̲h̲aik̲h̲ Jahān Akbarābādī Dihlawī was born at Akbarābād [i.e. Agrah] in 1082/1671–2. At the age of twelve he left his maktab and entered the madrasah of Malik al-ʿUlamāʾ S̲h̲. ʿAṭāʾ Allāh,86 with whom he read the Arabic ʿulūm until the age of twenty.87 He then married and spent five years in straitened circumstances as a teacher at Delhi. Having entered the service of Zēb al-Nisāʾ, Aurangzēb’s daughter [who died in 1114/1702],88 he was for a time engaged in translating the Fatāwī i ʿĀlamgīrī.89 Later in association with Muḥammad-Yār K̲h̲ān, the Governor of Delhi, he compiled a lexicographical work or works.90 At the same time he wrote annotations (ḥās̲h̲iyah) on the Qāmūs.91 Having composed a work entitled Muzīl al-ag̲h̲lāṭ he submitted it to the K̲h̲ān i K̲h̲ānān,92 and was taken into the service of Bahādur S̲h̲āh (1119–24/1707–12) with a manṣab of 150. An advantageous intimacy with the Wazīr al-Mulk [i.e. the K̲h̲ān i K̲h̲ānān] ensued.93 After receiving the appointments of Lecturer to the Emperor and Librarian to the K̲h̲ān i K̲h̲ānān,94 he accompanied the Imperial army to Ḥaidarābād [in the campaign of 1120/1708–9 against Kām-bak̲h̲s̲h̲, Bahādur S̲h̲āh’s brother]. When they reached the Narbadā on the return journey, he wrote a risālah i ḥurūf i sabʿah [so d.p. 594, but for sabʿah d.p. 634 has ṣīg̲h̲ah (?)] and submitted it to the Emperor, who rewarded him with a k̲h̲ilʿat, a present of 1,000 rupees, promotion to a manṣab of 400, and a jāgīr. In the reign of the S̲h̲ahīd i marḥūm [i.e. Farruk̲h̲-siyar, 1124–31/1713–19] he became Keeper of the Treasury at Delhi and also Superintendent of the Holy Shrines95 At this time, he says, he undertook and completed his translation of the Bahjat al-asrār (for which see no. 1251 supra, where it has been recorded that in the work itself the date of completion is given as 1133). At the beginning of Muḥammad S̲h̲āh’s reign (1131–61/1719–48) he was appointed wakīl i s̲h̲arʿī to the king and received the title of K̲h̲ān.96 At the time of writing the D̲h̲ikr i jamīʿ i auliyāʾ i Dihlī he was hoping to resign his manṣab and go on a ḥajj. In 1147/1735 he completed and dedicated to Muḥammad S̲h̲āh a Persian translation of the Qāmūs to which he gave the title Qābūs (mss.: Āṣafīyah iii p. 618 nos. 373–4, Bodleian 1674, Būhār 253–4, Calcutta Madrasah 157–60, Rieu ii 511a, 511b). According to the Tārīk̲h̲ i Muḥammadī (cited by Rieu. iii 1089a) he died at Delhi in 1160/1747.

§ 1372. Mīr S̲h̲ihāb al-Dīn119 “Niẓām”, entitled ʿImād al-Mulk120 G̲h̲āzī al-Dīn K̲h̲ān Fīrōz-Jang [iii], was a son of the Amīr al-umarāʾ G̲h̲āzī al-Din K̲h̲ān Fīrōz-Jang [ii, i.e. Mīr M. Panāh, d. 1165/1752121] and a grandson of Niẓām al-Mulk Āṣaf-Jāh122 His mother was a daughter of Iʿtimād al-Daulah Qamar al-Dīn K̲h̲ān,123 who became Wazīr to Muḥammad S̲h̲āh in 1136/1724 and died in 1161/1748. In the reign of Aḥmad S̲h̲āh (1161–7/1748–54) he was Mīr Bak̲h̲s̲h̲ī (Quartermaster General124) and subsequently Wazīr. He directed the military operations against Ṣafdar-Jang125 and, with Marāṭ’hā help, against Sūraj Mal, the Jāṭ. In 1167/1754 he deposed Aḥmad S̲h̲āh and placed ʿĀlamgīr ii upon the throne. In 1169/1755 Mīr Muʿīn al-Mulk, Governor of the Panjāb,126 who had perforce submitted to Aḥmad S̲h̲āh Abdālī, died, and his widow and her favourite Ādīnah Bēg K̲h̲ān127 seized the reins of government. ʿImād al-Mulk, desiring to restore the province to the empire, captured Lahore, where he left Ādīnah Bēg K̲h̲ān in charge, removed Mug̲h̲ulānī Bēgam to Delhi and married her daughter. Aḥmad S̲h̲āh Abdālī at once marched on Lahore (ah 1170/1756), expelled Ādīnah Bēg K̲h̲ān, and went on to Delhi, which he entered victoriously with ʿĀlamgīr ii and ʿImād al-Mulk in his train. ʿImād al-Mulk then took part on behalf of Aḥmad S̲h̲āh Abdālī in the operations of Jahān K̲h̲ān against Sūraj Mal and in unsuccessful hostilities against S̲h̲ujāʿ al-Daulah of Oudh. Aḥmad S̲h̲āh Abdālī, displeased with ʿImād al-Mulk, appointed Najīb al-Daulah Amīr al-Umarāʾ and left for Lahore. ʿImād al-Mulk marched from Farruk̲h̲ābād against Najīb al-Daulah and with Marāṭ’hā help besieged him and ʿĀlamgīr ii in Delhi. In 1174/1760 the growing power of the Sik’hs and Marāṭ’hās brought Aḥmad S̲h̲āh Abdālī for the fourth time to India, and the Marāṭ’hās were defeated at Pānīpat. ʿImād al-Mulk, knowing that ʿĀlamgīr ii desired an Abdālī victory, had murdered him [8 Rabīʿ ii 1173/29 Nov. 1759] on Aḥmad S̲h̲āh’s approach.

The days of ʿImād al-Mulk’s power were now over. For a time he stayed with Sūraj Mal [who died in 1177/1763], then with Aḥmad K̲h̲ān Bangas̲h̲ [d. 1185/1771] at Farruk̲h̲ābād, and he fought on the side of S̲h̲ujāʿ al-Daulah of Oudh against the British. In 1187/1773 he went to the Deccan and received some land in Mālwah from the Marāṭ’hās. Then after living for a time at Sūrat he went on a pilgrimage to Mecca. In 1195/1781 according to the Gulzār i Ibrāhīm, (cited in Sprenger p. 273) he was in Sind. Subsequently he was at the court of Tīmūr S̲h̲āh Abdālī (who reigned 1187–1207/1773–93), and in 1211/1797, when Zamān S̲h̲āh (1207–16/1793–1801) invaded the Panjāb, ʿImād al-Mulk is said to have been in his service. He died at Kālpī on 10 Rabīʿ ii 1215/1 September 1800.128

ʿImād al-Mulk, who originally used the tak̲h̲alluṣ “Āṣaf” but abandoned it later for “Niẓām”, wrote poetry in Persian, Urdu, Arabic and Turkī. His Persian dīwān, of which there are mss. in the British Museum (Rieu ii 719b) and at Leningrad (Romaskewicz p. 9), was published in 1301/1883–4 (see Āṣafīyah iii p. 296, where the place of publication (presumably Ḥaidarābād) is not mentioned). A poem in praise of ʿAlī (Manqabat i Niẓām dar madḥ i ʿAlī) and a qaṣīdah are preserved in ms. (autograph ?) at ʿAlīgaṛh (Subḥ. mss. p. 37 nos. 7, 8). His mat̲h̲nawīs included one on the miracles of Maulānā Fak̲h̲r al-Dīn (Fak̲h̲rīyat al-Niẓām), but no mss. seem to be recorded.

§ 1375. M. Naʿīm Allāh Bahrāʾic̲h̲ī Ḥanafī Naqs̲h̲bandī, born in 1153/1740–1, doubtless at Bahra’ic̲h̲ (65 miles north-east of Lucknow), was the son of G̲h̲ulām-Quṭb al-Dīn, commonly called (ʿurf) Malik Kālī (or Kālē ?). b. Malik G̲h̲ulām-Muḥammad. In 1171/1757–8 he went to Lucknow and pursued Arabic studies there. Subsequently he studied at S̲h̲āhjahānpūr, Bareilly, Delhi, Murādābād and elsewhere. In 1186/1772–3 he was initiated into the Naqs̲h̲bandī order by M. Jamīl, one of Mīrzā Jān-i-Jānān “Maẓhar’s” k̲h̲alīfahs, who had come from Delhi to Lucknow. Not long afterwards he visited “Maẓhar” at Delhi and spent four months there. In 1189/1775–6 he returned to Delhi and remained in constant association with “Maẓhar” for four years, receiving from him the k̲h̲irqah and his ijāzat as a member of the Naqs̲h̲bandī, Qādirī, C̲h̲is̲h̲tī and Suhrawardī orders. Thenceforward he lived mainly in Lucknow. When he wrote his autobiography in 1208/1793–4, he had visited Delhi four times, the bilād i Afāg̲h̲inah (i.e. probably Rohilkhand) several times and Pānīpat twice. He died at Bahrā’ic̲h̲ in 1218/1803–4.

§ 1376. S̲h̲āh ʿAbd Allāh, commonly called (al-mas̲h̲hūr bi-) G̲h̲ulām-ʿAlī,. b. S. ʿAbd al-Laṭīf Mujaddidī ʿAlawī Dihlawī was born in 1158/1745 at Baṭālah in the Gūrdāspūr District of the Panjāb. At the age of thirteen he went to Delhi and associated with well-known Ṣūfīs like Fak̲h̲r al-Dīn Fak̲h̲r i Jahān (cf. no. 1372, 4th par., footnote supra) and K̲h̲wājah Mīr “Dard”. In 1180/1766–7 at the age of twenty-two he became a disciple of Mīrzā “Maẓhar” (cf. no. 1375 (1), 2nd footnote supra) and in due course received from him the k̲h̲irqah i k̲h̲ilāfat of the four main orders. After “Maẓhar’s” death G̲h̲ulām-ʿAlī succeeded him as superior of his community (jā-nis̲h̲īn u ṣāḥib-sajjādah i īs̲h̲ān s̲h̲ud). He died on 22 Ṣafar 1240/1824. Collections of his letters (Makātīb i s̲h̲arīfah. Edition: Madras 1334/1916*) and of his utterances (Durr al-maʿārif.143 Edition: Delhi [1927*]) were made by his disciple S̲h̲āh Raʾūf Aḥmad Muṣṭafā-ābādī (for whom see K̲h̲azīnat al-aṣfiyāʾ i p. 703, Ḥadāʾiq al-Ḥanafīyah p. 472, Raḥmān ʿAlī p. 66). The former is presumably the work dar bāb i maktūbāt u maqāmāt i ān-janāb referred to in the K̲h̲azīnah i p. 703 antepenult.

The words Dārā and S̲h̲ukōh in this name form a compound idea (“Majestic as Dārā,” the ancient Persian king), and the second element is not, strictly speaking, separable from the first, but Manucci, Bernier and other Europeans speak of “Prince Dara”. Contemporary Indians may possibly have done the same in conversation.

Rieu interprets Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh’s statements in this place as meaning that “he had received the initiation to the Ḳādirī order in ah 1049”, but this is not expressly stated in the text (at any rate not in the Urdu translation). His admission to the Qādirī order seems to have occurred before this month with Mullā S̲h̲āh, since in the Safīnat al-auliyāʾ completed in Ramadān 1049 he already describes himself as M. Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh Ḥanafī Qādirī. According to his sister (Ṣāḥibīyah, Urdu trans. in ocm. xiii/4 p. 1417) he was a murīd of Miyāṅ Mīr (Mērē bhā’ī ḥaḍrat Miyāṅ-jīw sē nisbat i irādat rak’htē haiṅ). In the Safīnat al-auliyāʾ he says only that he had visited Miyāṅ Mīr twice (p. 7212: īn faqīr dū bār ba-mulāzamat i īs̲h̲ān rasīdah) and that one of these occasions was when at the age of twenty he was taken to the saint by S̲h̲āh-Jahān and through his intercession was cured of an illness which had baffled the physicians.

Bābā Lāl (spelt also Laʿl), or Lāl Dās, or Lāl Dayāl, as he is variously called in different mss., is said by Huart and Massignon (p. 287) on the authority of the Urdu translation of the S̲h̲aṭaḥāt, i.e. the Ḥasanāt al-ʿārifīn, (p. 44) to have been a Kabīr-pant’hī. Qanungo (i p. 336) doubts whether he was “a Kabirpanthi out and out”. For information concerning him see H. H.

The only copy traceable at present belongs to the private library of K̲h̲ān Bahādur Maulawī Ẓafar Ḥasan, Superintendent, Archæological Survey, Northern Circle, Āgrah, who has published a description of it under the title Manuscript copy of the Dīwān of Dārā Shikūh in the jrasb., Letters, Vol. v, 1939, pp. 155–73. The statement of Massignon (Textes inédits i p. 256) that “Le dîwân de Dârâ Shikouh est à Londres (ms. Or. 9492)” is incorrect. The b.m. ms. Or. 9492 is the dīwān of “Dārā”, a poet of Fatḥ-ʿAlī S̲h̲āh’s time. Dārā-S̲h̲ukōh’s tak̲h̲alluṣ was not “Dārā”, but “Qādirī”.

Miyāṅ Mīr, or S̲h̲āh Mīr, whose real name was Mīr Muḥammad (Sakīnat al-auliyāʾ, Urdu trans., p. 19, ʿAmal i Ṣāliḥ iii p. 363 ult.), or Muḥammad Mīr (K̲h̲azīnat al-aṣfiyāʾ i p. 1544: S̲h̲aik̲h̲ M. Mīr al-mas̲h̲hūr bi-Miyān-Mīr Bālā Pīr Qādirī Lāhaurī), was a Fārūqī (not a Saiyid apparently) and was born at Sīwistān (i.e. Sehwan, in Sind) in 938/1531–2 (Sakīnah, Urdu trans., p. 19 ult.), or 957/1550 (Safīnah p. 7010), or 975/1567–8 (Sakīnah, Urdu trans., p. 75 ult.). He settled in Lahore (at the age of twenty-five according to K̲h̲azīnah. i p. 15414) and had been living there for more than sixty years when he died on the 7th (Safīnah p. 7219), or the 17th (Sakīnah, Urdu trans., p. 74 ult.) of Rabīʿ i 1045/21st or 31st August, 1635 (so both Safīnah and Sakīnah) or in 1044/1634–5 (Pāds̲h̲āh-nāmah i, 2, p. 3311, ʿAmal i Ṣāliḥ iii p. 36610). His tomb to the east of Lahore at the place now called Miyāṅ Mīr is close to the military cantonment. The or jīw sometimes appended to the word Miyāṅ is a Hindī affix indicative of respect.

At the beginning of the account of Bībī Jamāl K̲h̲ātūn, the saint’s sister, (Urdu trans. p. 1014) 1050 is mentioned as the current year. Two or three dates are later insertions. Thus the notice of S̲h̲. ʿAbd al-Wāḥid, which speaks of him in the present tense, ends with a statement that he died in 1056 (Urdu trans. p. 17012). Similarly Bībī Jamāl K̲h̲ātūn, who is described as “now, in 1050, alive and well” (Urdu trans. p. 1014), is said to have died on Tuesday, 27 Rabīʿ i 1057 “after the writing of this book” (Urdu trans. p. 102 penult.). A reference to the Safīnat al-auliyāʾ occurs in the chapter headed Bayān i faḍīlat i silsilah i Qādirīyah (Urdu trans. p. 126). Curiously enough the Safīnat al-auliyāʾ contains a reference (inserted either subsequently or in anticipation of a future event) to the Sakīnat al-auliyāʾ. It comes near the end of the notice of Miyāṅ Mīr and in the autograph described by M. S̲h̲afīʿ it runs as follows: C̲h̲ūn baʿd az-īn risālaʾī dar bayān i aḥwāl u auḍāʿ i ān-ḥaḍrat u pīr u murīdān i īs̲h̲ān nawis̲h̲tah s̲h̲ud dar-īn kitāb ba-hamīn qadr iktifā numūd (ocm x/3 p. 11111). In the Nawal Kis̲h̲ōr text (p. 7217) pīs̲h̲ az-īn takes the place of baʿd az-īn, and risālaʾī is expanded into risālaʾī musammā ba-Sakīnat al-auliyā.

Sprenger p. 488) to a punning suggestion by Aurangzēb that Jān-i-Jān would be a suitable name for the new-born son of Mīrzā Jān, who was a manṣabdār in the Imperial service. He was born at Kālābāg̲h̲, Mālwah, in 1111/1699–1700 or 1113/1701–2 or thereabouts (“Maẓhar’s” own statements on this subject seem to have varied: see ocm. xviii/1 pp. 37–8), but most of his life was spent at Delhi, where he was murdered by a S̲h̲īʿite fanatic in Muḥarram 1195/January 1781 (other dates, 1192, 1194, seem to have less good authority). Although “Maẓhar” wrote little in Urdu, his influence on the development of Urdu poetry is regarded as important. In Persian he is represented by (1) a dīwān of some 1,000 verses (Editions: Calcutta 1267/1851*, Cawnpore 1271/1855°*, Madras 1272/1855–6, Lahore [1922*]. mss.: Āṣafīyah i p. 732, iii p. 294, Browne Suppt. 609–10, Edinburgh 321, Lindesiana p. 186, Blochet iii 1945, Bānkīpūr Suppt. i 1966, Ivanow 875–6, Ivanow-Curzon 745(4), Edinburgh New Coll. p. 9, etc.), (2) K̲h̲arīṭah i jawāhir, an anthology of single lines and a few rubāʿīs selected [by “Maẓhar”, not by M. ʿAbd al-Raḥmān as stated in the b.m. and i.o. catalogues] from the works of many ancient and modern poets (Editions (appended to the dīwān): Cawnpore 1271/1855°*, Lahore [1922*]. ms.: i.o. d.p. 1328), (3) Maktūbāt, Ṣūfī letters compiled by M.

S̲h̲aik̲h̲ Ramaḍān ʿAlī, a resident (mutawaṭṭin) of Ṣadrpūr in the parganah of Malīḥābād near Lucknow. He was a Ṣūfī and a poet using the tak̲h̲alluṣ “Muḥammad” [not “ʿAlī”]. Born early in the second decade of the thirteenth century of the Hijrah, he studied Ḥadīt̲h̲ and Tafsīr under Mirzā Ḥasan ʿAlī Muḥaddit̲h̲ Lak’hnawī and entered the Naqs̲h̲bandī Mujaddidī order of Ṣūfīs as a murīd of Maulawī S̲h̲āh Bis̲h̲ārat-ʿAlī Bahrāʾic̲h̲ī. He strove earnestly to promote fidelity to the Sunnah and to extirpate bidʿah, and was himself a man of deep piety. In 1258/1842 he went to Ṭōnk and entered the service of Wazīr al-Daulah Nawwāb Wazīr M. K̲h̲ān [to whom the Mak̲h̲zan i Aḥmadī is dedicated]. He died in Rajab 1289/1872 in the time of Nawwāb M. ʿAlī K̲h̲ān. Among the works of his which Raḥmān ʿAlī mentions is [not Mak̲h̲zan i Aḥmadī but] Waqāʾiʿ i Aḥmadīyah (dar ḥālāt i Saiyid Aḥmad i Mujāhid i Rāy Barēlī). In spite of the discrepancies noted above it seems difficult to believe that M. ʿAlī Ṣadrpūrī is not identical with the author of the Mak̲h̲zan i Aḥmadī [which, we may note, “is intermixed with numerous poems and verses”].

In 1222/1807 he became a disciple of S̲h̲āh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz Dihlawī (for whom see no. 41 supra) and assimilated the latter’s puritanical views and hostility towards all “idolatrous” or superstitious innovations. On leaving Delhi he started a revivalist movement, in the course of which he “performed miracles and attracted a large number of followers”, becoming “a terror to the S̲h̲îʿahs of Lucknow and Naṣîrâbâd”. In 1821 he visited Calcutta and gained numerous adherents. In 1822 he made a pilgrimage to Mecca with his two chief disciples M. Ismāʿīl Dihlawī (cf. Ency. Isl. under Ismāʿīl al-S̲h̲ahīd) and ʿAbd al-Ḥaiy Dihlawī, who were respectively the nephew and the son-in-law of his old teacher, S̲h̲āh ʿAbd al-ʿAzīz, and of whom the former expounded S. Aḥmad’s doctrines in the Persian work Ṣirāṭ al-mustaqīm (Calcutta 1238/1823°). On 7 Jumādā ii 1241/17 Jan. 1826 he set out from Rāy Barēlī with a view to conducting jihād against the Sik’hs, whom he accused of oppressing the Muslims in the Panjāb, of prohibiting the ad̲h̲ān and the killing of cows. After inciting the people of Kābul and Qandahār, he with ten or twelve thousand adherents from India and Afg̲h̲ānistān attacked the Peshawar district. For some years he engaged Ranjīt Sing’h’s forces with varying success until he was killed in battle at Bālākōṭ on 24 D̲h̲ū ’l-Qaʿdah 1246/6 May 1831. His works include short tracts entitled Tanbīh al-g̲h̲āfilīn (Delhi 1285/1868*) and Mulhimāt [sic] i Aḥmadīyah fī ’l-ṭarīq al-Muḥammadīyah (Āgrah 1299/1882°). See jasb. i (1832) pp. 479–98 (cf.

^ Back to text217. Presumably the same person as the subject of the Manāqib i Ḥāfiẓīyah mentioned below (no. 48).

^ Back to text218. Presumably Abū ’l-Maʿālī b. S. M. As̲h̲raf C̲h̲is̲h̲tī Ṣābirī, of Anbahtah (“Ambahta”) near Sahāranpūr, who was a disciple of M. Ṣādiq Gangōhī and a k̲h̲alīfah of his son, M. Dāwud b. M. Ṣādiq Gangōhī C̲h̲is̲h̲ti, and who died in 1116/1704–5. See Sawāṭiʿ al-anwār (Ethé col. 338 no. 35(d)), K̲h̲azīnat al-aṣfiyāʾ i pp. 485–6.

^ Back to text219. Author of the Ṣūfī tract Ḍābiṭah dar taḥṣīl i rābiṭah, Ludiana 1893*.

^ Back to text221. Presumably S. Amīr Kulāl, who died in 772/1370. See Maqāmāt i Amīr Kulāl (no. (51) below; perhaps another copy of the same work); Nafaḥāt al-uns; Ras̲h̲aḥāt pp. 42–3; Haft iqlīm no. 1488; Safīnat al-auliyāʾ p. 77 (no. 81); K̲h̲azīnat al-aṣfiyāʾ i pp. 546–8.

^ Back to text222. Whether this is the work of M. Ṣādiq S̲h̲ihābī (see no. 1339 supra) does not appear from the catalogue.

^ Back to text223. Probably identical with the subject of the (Risālah i) ḥasab a nasab i … Ḥāfiẓ M. ʿAlī-S̲h̲āh K̲h̲airābādī mentioned above (no. (24)).

^ Back to text224. For S. Amīr Kulāl see no. (44) above. According to Ras̲h̲aḥāt p. 45, the author of the Maqāmāt i Amīr Kulāl was a grandson of Amīr Ḥamzah, Amīr Kulāl’s second son (dar Maqāmāt i Amīr Kulāl kih nabīrah i Amīr Ḥamzah taʾlīf kardah). This passage is probably the source of Ḥ. K̲h̲.’s information. According to the ocm. the author’s name does not occur in the preface. The cataloguer inferred from a passage on fol. 15 that Amīr Ḥamzah himself was the author.

^ Back to text226. In the b.m. ms. the title is given as Ḥālāt i Saiyid Sālār Masʿūd i G̲h̲āzī. The attribution of the title Saiyid to Sālār Masʿūd is perhaps due to a confusion with Saiyid Masʿūd G̲h̲āzī, the founder of G̲h̲āzīpūr, who is said to have died in 767/1365–6. See A short history of Syed Masud Gházi and his descendants, by S. Ali Azhar, in the Journal of the United Provinces Historical Society, iii pp. 49–53.
