About the Book:

The book begins with an account of the rise of the Kingdom of Ghor in the 12th Century A.D> under Sultan Baha-ud-din Sam, the nephew of Sultan Ala-ud-din Jahan Soz. The sovereignty of Ghor passed on into the hands of Sultan Ghias-ud-din Muhammad, the elder brother of Sultan Muizz-ud-din Muhammad Ghori, after the death of Sultan Ala-ud-din Jahan Soz. Muhammad Ghori invaded India, occupied it in 1192 after the second battle of Tarain. His lieutenant Qutab-ud-din laid siege to the fortress in North of Agra and took up his residence in Delhi which was made the capital. Qutab-ud-din ascended the throne of Delhi in 1206 after Ghori`s death.<-p>

Thus began the rule of the slave dynasty which was replaced in 1209 by the Khaljis. The details about Jalal-ud-din Feroz Khali and Ala-ud-din Khalji and his successors, and the murder of Malik Kafur have been described in an eloquent language. The defeat and death of Khusru Khan at the hands of Ghias-ud-din Tughlak and the establishment of Tughlak dynasty are also detailed out. Yahiya does not agree with the view that Mohammad Tughlak plotted his father`s death. He calls Aram Shah as the son of Qutab-ud-din. Changiz Khan, `the accursed` invader; but about the killing of 50,000 men capture by Timur between the Sindh and the Ganges, the author says, `God alone knows the truth.`<-p>

Timur handed over the kingdom of Multan and Punjab to Khizr Khan who later occupied Delhi in 1413-14. The narrative of Yahiya describes the reign of Khizr Khan and his successors till 1434. Like all medieval chronicle Yahiya too is pro-Muslim and has no soft words for the Hindus.<-p>

The Tarikh-i-Mubarakshahi by Yahiya Bin Ahmad Bin Abdullah Sirhindi was written originally into Persian. The present book is a translation of the original Persian work by H. Beveridge. It is regarded as a standard and authoritative translation of the original Persian work. The translator supplemented the work with notes which made it clear and understandable to the readers. The Index of the book is quite exhaustive.<-p>
