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. Syed Walayat Shah Sherazi: Thursday, May 25, 2006

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).

DIVISION OF OCCUPIED LANDS AT BATTAGRAM AND MANSEHRA When the whole territory of Districts Battgram and Mansehra was occupied from TurkRajgaan 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.
