IN THE NAME OF ALLAH, THE MOST MERCIFUL,
THE MOST BENEFICIENT
‘FOREWORD’

Man by nature is very forgetful and absent-minded. He does forget the history
of his forefathers with the passage of time. There are many people of my
village who don’t know even the names of their grandfathers. This is because
of the fact that no one has written any book on the life history and other
achievements of their forefathers. So I vowed to write a book through which
my younger generation could know about the life history and achievements of
their forefathers.

Although I’m not the student of history yet am very curious to know the
history of my respected forefathers. I also want to transfer the knowledge to
my younger generation that I’ve got from my elders. Today, every one is
involved in materialistic benefits. No one has a spare time to ask some thing
from others. Some people also feel shy to ask about the history of their elders.
I’m very grateful to the Almighty Allah for granting courage and assistance
for writing this book, as He is the most Compassionate, the most Merciful.

Allah says in the Holy Quran, “O mankind! (Allah) has created you from a
male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know
one another. Verily, the most honorable of you with Allah is that (believer)
who is one of the pious. Verily, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware”.

All suggestions, especially from my elders, to improve and enrich the book
would be gratefully accepted and thankfully acknowledged in the next edition,
Insha Allah.

I’ve been much guided by the books “Islam, Yahoodiyat and Issa-iat” written
by Ejaz Hussain Tirmizi, “Sarhad Mein Mughl-e-Azam Ka Islami Mission”
written by Syed Ma’aroof Shah Sherazi and “Roohani Rabita & Taroon”
written by Qazi Abdul Haleem Asar Afghani.

I feel great pleasure in extending my heart felt thanks to Syed Jalal Shah
Sherazi, Syed Omar Farooq Sherazi and Syed Hussain Shah Sherazi for their
contributions to this book. I express my deep appreciation for the assistance
rendered to me by Pirzada Syed Ghulam Rahmani Al-Qadri of Bagh Kandi
Sharif, Lower Dir. I am also thankful to all my worthy elders who encouraged
me to write this book and helped me with their valuable suggestions.

UOCH SHARIF

Ouch Sharif has played a significant role in the making of history. For some time as a
provincial metropolis of the well known Raj Hindu Dynasty and then the capital of

62
Nasiruddin Qabacha. However, it remained a favourite place of religious existence
and piety throughout the period of its existence. The city once possessed several sun
temples. With the advent of Islam, sprang up institutions of formal and informal
education. It was divided into three socio-administrative sectors:

Ouch Bukhari (2) Ouch Jilani and (3) Ouch Moghla.

Ouch Bukhari was founded by Syed Jalaluddin Hassan Mir Surkh Bukhari, while
Ouch Jilani by Saifuddin Ghazrooni. The saintly personages living in the city
imparted mystic training and guidance to the thousands who approached. The
Suharwardia silsila was established over here by Syed Jalaluddin Hassan Mir Surkh
Bukhari. The place got name and fame due to Syed Jalaluddin Hussain Jahanian
Jahangasht Bukhari. Similarly Syed Muhammad Ghaus Jilani Hallabi established the
Qadiriya silsila. It was Ouch from where this order spread to entire sub-continent and
was carried to Indonesia and Malaysia.

The same tombs existing at Ouch Sharif include those of Makhdoom of Hazrat
Bahawal Haleem, Makhdoom Jahanian Jahangasht, Bibi Javinda, the tomb of the
wife of the Jahanian Jahangasht, who was the daughter of Sultan Lange Khan, the
governor of Multan, for whose name is a garden at Multan.

The Sajjada Nasheen of Ouch Bukhari has the following relics:

(1) A turban of the Holy Prophet (2) A robe and mantle of the Holy Prophet (3)
Samsam (sword) of Hazrat Imam Hassan, May Allah be pleased with him (4) A cap
of Hazrat Shiekh Abdul Qadir Jilani of Baghdad (5) The turban and mantle of Hazrat
Salman Farsi (May Allah be pleased with him). The Sajjada Nasheen of Ouch Jilani
has the following relics: (1) Footprints of the Holy Prophet (Peace be upon him) (2)
A few chapters of the Holy Quran written by Hazrat Imam Hussain (May Allah be
pleaed with him) (3) Tooth of Hazrat Awais Qarni (Rahmatullah-e-Alaih).

(22) SYED NASIRUD-DIN MAHMOOD SHERAZI
(Rahmatullah-e-Alaih)

Syed Nasiruddin Mahmood Sherazi was the eldest son of Syed Jalaluddin
Hussain Makhdoom Jahanian Jahangasht Bukhari. He was born on 2nd
Zilqa’ad 740 Hijri (1338 A.D) and died on 22nd Ramazanul Mubarak 800
Hijri (1398 A.D) in Shiraz, Iran. He had ten sons named: (1)) Syed Hamid
Kabir (2) Syed Ilmuddin (3) Syed Shahabuddin (4) Syed Ismail (5) Syed
Sirajuddin (6) Syed Fazlullah (7) Syed Burhanuddin, whose descendants have
settled in Gujrat. (8) Syed Munawwaruddin known as Bandagi Sheikh Islam,
whose descendants have settled in Qanooj, India (9) Syed Sharfuddin, whose

Most of the descendants of the sons of Syed Nasiruddin Mahmood are called
as ‘Bukhari Sadaat’ in India and Pakistan but the descendants of Syed
Nizamuddin are called as ‘Sadaat Sherazi’ because they migrated to Sheraz,
Iran and settled there. After a long perid of two hundred years, some of the
descendants of Syed Nizamuddin migrated from Sheraz, Iran to Dheli, India
and settled in different parts of India and Pakistan. May Allah keep his soul in

DIVISION OF OCCUPIED LANDS AT BATTAGRAM AND MANSEHRA

When the whole territory of Districts Battgram and Mansehra was occupied from Turk-
Rajgaan under the leadership of Syed Jalal Baba and Syed Pir Saadat Shah Baba, son of
Haji Syed Muhammad Ahmad Shah, the question of division of occupied lands was
raised. Shah Zaman, son of Syed Jalal Baba did not want to let other tribes be the owners
of lands, occupied from Turks. He established his government with the capitals in Batelo
(Allai) in Battagram and Bugarmang in Mansehra. It was told to other people that they
were only lashkarese and lashkarese were not to be shared in occupied lands. But the
other tribes made various troubles for him. In the meantime, Shah Zaman, son of Syed
Jalal Baba was killed by the snakebite.

At last, Syed Jalal Baba realized that the division of occupied lands was a must. A
formula was devised according to which the occupied lands were divided into four parts.
Three parts were given to different tribes of Swati, the fourth-one was given to
Astanadaar. Astanaddar included Saadat, Akhoonkhel and Madekhail. Saadat also
included Syed Sherazi, who are presently living in Chinar Kot, Singal Kot, Lammi,
Jalora, Kanshian (Mansehra), Oghaz Banda, Landai, Bara and Kanshai (Battagram) and
Syed Jalali/Pir Imami called Tirmizi, living in Maidan, Buland Kot, Ajmera, Batelo,
Gantar (Battagram), Kaghan, Bhai and Baffa, Mansehra. So one part out of fourth was
given to Syed Jalali, Syed Sherazi, Akhoon Khel and Madekhail. They took one-fourth
each in the occupied lands in Battagram and Mansehra. The remaining three-fourth of
occupied lands was divided among the different tribes of Swati. Similarly all the occupied
lands in present districts of Battagram and Mansehra were divided into four parts. The
division of occupied lands was made by the guidance and assistance of a person named
Sheikh Malli, who was a Yousufzai Pathan of Swabi.

Those tribes of Swati, Sadaat Sherazi and Tirmizi, Akhoon Khel and Madekhel, etc., are
the original owners of lands, who were given shares in occupied lands situated at both of
the present Districts of Mansehra and Battagram. However, those tribes who were not
given shares in the lands at both of the Districts of Mansehra and Battagram are not the
original owners of lands. They have either purchased or occupied the lands from others.

Before the division of lands, the Astanadaar of present district of Battagram were offered
the whole territory from present Kass Pull to Neelishang, and Neelishang to
Shamlai/Bansair and Hills by Swati tribes. This territory was equal to one-fourth of the
present District of Battagram. But unfortunately, the Astanadaar rejected this offer of
Swati tribes. It was because of the fact that the Astanadaar had upper hand as compared
to Swati tribes.

They said that they would take their share of land everywhere. So each allaqa from
Pashto (Allai) to Mangal (Qalanderabad) and Lake Saiful Malook (Kaghan) on one hand
and the whole allaqa of Agrore on the other hand were divided into four parts. Astanadaar
were shared one- fourth everywhere. Swati were happy over this division of lands
because they knew it would be impossible for Astanadaar to look after their share of
lands at different places. Syed Sherazi were given the lands at Oghaz Banda, Landai,
Bara, Kanshai, Paimaal Sharif (Thakot), Bara Cham of village Pagora, Karlai near
Kakarshang, Dedal, Takia near Darro in present District of Battagram. In present District
of Mansehra, lands at Chinar Kot, Singal Kot, Lami, Shakarkot, Chapra Payeen and Bara
were given. In allaqa Pakhal, the lands at upper Cham of Khaki, Bher Kund, Hamsherian,
Pir Kalay, Susal village, Kanshian (Balakot) were given. Syed Abdus Sadiq Shah,
grandfather of Dr. Syed Attaullah Shah Sherazi of Koansh, was the last man, who had
collected/received his rent of lands at Kaarlai near Kakarshahng. So by and large, we’re
the real owners of these lands situated at different places in Battagram and Mansehra.

We had a lot of lands in the surroundings of Paimal Sharif, Chatto near Kanshai, Dheri
Jahangir Khan and upper Cham of Phagora that have been occupied by Mr. Jan
Muhammad Khan of Thakot, Sahibzadgan of Paimal Sharif, Mr. Jahangir Khan of
Battagram and Panjghoal of Phagora respectively. Once the Doadals of Battagram asked
Mr. Jahangir Khan to give them their share in the lands of present Dheri Jahangir Khan.
Mr. Jahangir Khan told them that the real owners of these lands were the Sadaat of Oghaz
Banda and Landai and Doadals have no right to claim over these lands.

At the time of settlement, we were asked by Mr. Jan Muhammad Khan of Thakot to come
and get our lands settled in our names situated at Paimal Sharif. We wanted to send our
men and get these lands settled in our names. But in those days, we were engaged in the
settlement process in our own villages, Landai and Oghaz Banda. We decided that after
the completion of settlement process in our own villages, we would go to Paimal Sharif
and ask the revenue authorities to get settled these lands in our names. In the mean time,
an agreement was made between Sahibzadgan of Paimal Sharif and Mr. Jan Muhammad
Khan of Thakot, according to which our lands were shared equally among them and got
settled in their own names. We were shocked to know about this decision. As we were
busy in the settlement process in our villages, it was difficult for us to lodge a civil suit
against Mr. Jan Muhammad Khan of Thakot and Sahibzadgan of Paimal Sharif. We also
did not stress our claim over these lands because on one hand we were busy in our own
settlement process and on the other hand, it was very difficult for our people to fight
against Mr. Jan Muhammad Khan of Thakot, who was a strong and powerful Khan. We
also did not stress our claim over these lands, as the Sahibzadgan of Paimal Sharif were
also our Qureshi brothers. Before this, rent of these lands was being collected/received
either by our elders in Oghaz Banda or by our brothers living in Kanshai. Syed Sakhawat
Shah, grandfather of Syed Ibrahim Shah was the last one, who had collected the rent from
his tenants of Chatto near Kanshai.

We had also a lot of lands in Titta Sharay near Dedal. Our elders used to get rent of these
lands for a long time. It was difficult for us to use these lands as we were very few in
numbers and also engaged in enmity with the people in our neighbourhood. Once some of
our elders went to Dedal to collect rent from their tenants. On the way to Dedal, it rained
heavily and our elders got very tired. When they came to Dedal, they were warmly
welcomed and entertained by their tenants. They were so pleased with their tenants that
they gifted their whole lands to them.

We had also a piece of land adjacent to the graveyard of Haji Baba and present house of
Muhammad Zarin Khan. This land had been given to our khadim as seri, who used to
look after the graveyard of Haji Baba. This piece of land had been in use of our khadims
for centuries. When we came back after an exile of four years, the last khadim was
Barkati, who used to cultivate this piece of land. He was compelled to leave this piece of
land by our opponents. The people of Shingli Payeen among them-selves divided the
same piece of land. So our opponents occupied this piece of land.

We had some lands in the south of Uthrairai ( ) and to the west of Shingalo Dand. Our
forefathers had given this piece of land to their Pesh Imams as seri. This land was to be
used by our Pesh Imams for centuries. At last, this land was allotted to Maulana Abdul
Qayum, Maulana Abdul Manan, Maulana Khalilur Rahman and Maulana Abdul Wadood,
the descendants of our Pesh Imams at the time of Bando Bast in 1965. We did not raise
any objection over the allotment of this piece of land as the forefathers of our present
Pesh Imam had spent very good time with our elders. Maulana Muhammad Anwar Shah
had detailed information of lands of our people situated at different places/villages in
Battagram and Mansehra. Once he submitted a detailed statement of these lands to
Political Tehsildar in Tarand through Maulana Muhammad Yousaf, father of Attaullah
Khan of Bania. Maulna Muhammad Yousuf was a sincere and very sympathetic person.
He was also ready to bear a witness in favour of our people in the court of law.
ABAI AND HAJI BABA WANDS (LANDS)

These two big pieces of lands (wands) adjacent to the graveyards of Abai and Haji Baba
are situated between our village and Shingli Payeen. We were the actual owners of these
lands before our opponents who lived in allaqa Tikri. In those days, Malkaal were living
in the present allaqa of our opponents. An agreement of exchange of lands/allaqa was
made between our opponents and Malkaal. According to the agreement, our opponents
were given the present allaqa of our opponents and Malkaal were given the present allaqa
of Tikri. Our opponents forcefully occupied these two pieces of land. We asked our
opponents that these were our lands before you and were being cultivated by Malkaal on
rent. But our opponents told us that these lands had been given to them by Malkaal in
exchange of those lands situated at Tikri. A dispute of ownership was created over these
lands.

they were grieved and said that these were our (their) lands. A man probably named “Sham” belonging to Malkaal was called to take oath on the Holy Qur’an as to whether these two pieces of land were owned by Malkaal or the Sadaat of Oghaz Banda. Abai Wand and Haji Baba Wand and the lands adjacent to the graveyard of Syed Pir Saadat Shah Baba were exchanged between our brothers living in Koansh and our people in Oghaz Banda and Landai. these lands i.e. these two lots of land had been given as share to our brothers living in Koansh and we were given as share the lands adjacent to the graveyard of Syed Pir Saadat Shah Baba in Koansh.
