Hazrat Sayyid Sirajuddin Muhammad

Ahmedabad,Gujarat, India

History

Hazrat Sayyid Sirajuddin Muhammad was the son of Sayyid Burhanuddin Qutub-ul-Alam and the great grandson of the celebrated Sayyid Jalauddin Hussain Bukhari of Uch, also known as Makhdoom Jahaniyan Jahangasht. Attracted to the court of Ahmed Shah I, his father settled at Vatva and died there in 1452. Shah e Alam succeeded his father and, till his death in 1475, was the guide of Mahmud Begada's youth, and afterwards one of the most revered of Muslim religious teachers of Ahmedabad. He was known as Shah e Alam, king of the world.
Shah e Alam, the eleventh among twelve sons, assisted his father, Qutub-e-Alam. An interesting miracle happened one day; while bathing in a water body, his feet hit upon something. The Shaikh remarked that he didn’t know whether the object was stone, iron or wood. Miraculously, the object turned into a mixture of the three materials and became a venerated relic.

Shah Alam was related to the royal houses of Sindh and Gujarat through marriage to Bibi Marqi, the second daughter of Jam Saheb of Sindh.

He spent six days a week in solitary meditation and received visitors only on Fridays, when open discussions were held.
He died on 20 Jumada al akhira 880 Hijri/1475 AD.
