Syaahnaama for marriages

To gain properties, people would make false claims about marriages.  It would be very difficult to provide proof of marriage when disputes arose as everything would done by word of mouth.  Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) also streamlined the offices of Qazaath (office of Islamic rulings).  He issued directives for the Qazi.  The “Syahnama” that we see today in Deccan is an achievement of Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him).  It is nothing but a favor of Shaykh Ul Islam that he anticipated the problems of marriage, divorce, etc. and took steps to prevent them whose importance we can realize in today’s times.  (Matla ‘Ul Anwaar, Pg. No. 52)


Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) was the minister of religious affairs of the kingdom and as such he would tour various places, inspect the work done there and make necessary corrections and reforms.  In 1325 Hijri, he toured Aurangabad and its surrounding areas.  In this tour, he inspected 94 places, which included 28 mosques, 7 Madarsas, 29 shrines of the saints and other offices, graveyards, endowment properties, etc.


Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) not only toured these places, but gave directives and guidelines to the officers who handled those responsibilities.


Earlier in 1322 Hijri, the responsibility of the shrine of Hadhrat Khwaja Banda Nawaz (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) were assigned to him.  He made special arrangements for the education of the family of the Khwaja.  He also took up reparation and renovation work of the shrine itself and accomplished many other public works.  He founded “Madarsa Deeniya” in Gulbarga.  He also started a clinic for the populace and made all arrangements for it.  (Anwaar Ul Anwaar, Pg. No. 102/101)


As Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) was the minister of religious affairs, the affairs of non-Muslims were also his responsibility.  He fulfilled this responsibility without any discrimination or bias.  (Anwaar Ul Anwaar, Pg. No. 118/119)


Thus, the whole life of Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam was spent in revival of Islam, in the reformation of the Ummah and in welfare of ht community.  He has left deep, lasting and illuminating impressions on all aspects of religious service.  All the different classes of Muslims drew benefit from him.  The world can never forget his services to the Ummah.  His achievements will always be a beacon of guidance for Muslims.  The scholars and the laymen will keep drawing benefit from his erudite works.
