Teaching and instruction of kings

Very soon, the fame of Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) spread and he was selected to teach the 6th Nizam, Mir Mahboob Ali Khan.  When Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) was shown the royal edict, he didn’t accept it and said:  Service to people is much greater than service to kings.  I can’t accept this.  However, Hadhrat Maulana Maseeh Uz Zamaan (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) who was then the teacher of Mir Mahboob Ali, insistently requested Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) to accept this responsibility.  Then Shaykh Ul Islam said:  Unless and until I do Istikhara, I cannot take any final decision regarding this.  When he received a divine go-ahead, only then did he accept this post.

 

Almighty Allah willed that to reform the community, Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) should reform the kings as well.  Thus, Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) would always be anxious that the reformation of the Ummah should be undertaken.  Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) accepted this post so that if kings are reformed, then the reformation of the populace becomes easy.  If the kings are educated and instructed properly, then the worldly progress of the community and their religious progress can be easily intertwined.

 

Thus, this went on without any interruption, Mir Mahboob Ali Pasha, Nawab Mir Osman Ali Khan and both of his sons, Nawab Mir Himayat Ali Khan Azam Jah Bahadur and Nawab Mir Shujaat Ali Khan Moazzam Jah Bahadur all were students of Hadhrat Shaykh Ul Islam (May Allah shower His Mercy on him).
