Syedi Fakhruddin Shaheed R.A

 Galiakot,Rajasthan, India


Syedi Fakhruddin Shaheed was the son of Raja Tarmal, who along with his brother Raja
Bharmal, converted to Islam at the hands of Moulaya Abdullah, in the era of Mustansir Imam.
Syedi Khawj bin Malak, one of the hudood of the 26th Dai Syedna Daud bin Ajabshah and the
27th Dai Syedna Daud bin Qutub Shah, have recorded in Sitt Rasa?il the history of the
Fatimid-Tayyibi Dawat in India in these times. Raja Bharmal and Raja Tarmal were viziers of
the Rajput king of Khambat in present day Rajasthan, and both expended great efforts in
spreading Islam and Iman in India in its nascent years. Raja Bharmal’s son Moulaya Yaqub
was the Imam’s appointed Waali in India, and he sent his cousin, Syedi Fakhruddin, to
propagate Islam in the lands of the “Waaghar.”

Syedi Fakhruddin Shaheed was killed on 27 Muharram by brigands while he was conducting
Dawat affairs in the Waaghar region; this is why he is remembered as a martyr, shaheed. At
the beginning of the month, he had performed Ashara Mubaraka in Galiakot.
