Syedi Shamskhan(QS)

Wafaat : 25th Shaban-ul-Kareem 1076 H/ 1666 Ad

Syedi Shamskhan is from the progeny of Syedi Fakhruddin Shaheed. He is the grandfather of Duat Kiram. When Syedna Qutbuddin Shaheed(RA) and Syedna Feerkhan Shujauddin(RA) were in prison, Syedi Shamskhan and his son Syedi Hasanji Badshah served them with total devotion and sincerity.

Syedna Feerkhan Shujauddin(RA) sent him to Ujjain for Dawat and was called again by Syedna Badruddin(RA). Syedna Zakiuddin(RA) went personally to welcome him.

Then he was sent to Ahmedabad for Dawat. There he faced many hardships from the enemies, especially Hujumiyah.

On the 25th of Shaban-Ul-Karim, he bathed and came and told his grandson Abdul-Raheem that my time has arrived, get the 'Kafan'(shroud) given by Syedna Qutbuddin Shaheed(RA) and he passed away. Surat was established by him as a 'markaz'(main center) of Dawat.
