IMPORTANT MANUSCRIPTS RELATED TO NAWAB WAZEER KHAN LAHORI – AND HIS SON MUHAMMED SALAH ALIAS ANWAR KHAN ALAMGEERI
A wealth of information lies in the study of manuscripts. So much new is discovered every day. Reference is made to Anwar Khan as existing in the time of Shah Jahan, but that is not the case at all. Tazhkira Kewal Ram clears all that, by telling us that the name of Wazeer Khan’s son was Muhammed Salah. Later on, Aurangzeb rose his rank and gave him the title of Salah Khan. In 29th regnal year, he was given the title of Anwar Khan. So much so for the waqf nama touted as the legacy of Nawab Wazeer Khan.
The discovery of a manuscript written by Muhammed Salah in 1080 A H as well as 1089 A H, clears all this very much. We reproduce some pages for the information of researchers. Worthy of further research. A notable addition to our research book, “The Legacy of Nawab Wazeer Khan”. Another important discovery is the DIWAN OF WAZEER KHAN, and we will talk about it in a separate blog. Wait!
