History of Sayyid Dynasty

  • Khizr Khan (1414-1421) founded the dynasty and claimed to have descended from the prophet of Islam.

  • He helped Timur in his invasion, so he was given the governorship of Lahore, Multan & Dipalpur.
  • When Khizr Khan got possession of Delhi, his position was very weak and he didn't take up the title of king and contended himself with that of Rayat-i-Ala.

    The coins were struck and Khutba was read in the name of Timur and after his death in the name of his successor, Shah Rukh.

  • Khizr Khan's 3 successors - Mubarak Shah (1421-33), Muhammad Shah (1434-43) and Alauddin Alam Shah (1443-51) were incapable leaders.
  • Sayyid dynasty's 37 years remained troubled with external invasions, internal chaos, etc.

  • Provided opportunity to Bahlul Lodhi.

  • Yahya-bin-Ahmed-bin-Abdullah-Sirhindi wrote Tarikh-i-Mubarakshahi (history from Mahmud to Muhammad Shah of Sayyid Dynasty).
