'*Legend of Hazrat Shah Jalal*'


Shah Jalal is one of the most legendary Islamic heroes of Bangladesh and one of the key founding fathers of Islam in the country. He was a great saint an a great warrior. He along with his disciples, had unique contribution in liberating the people of Sylhet region both from the racial rule of the hindu kings and the presudices of paganism.

His full name Sheikh-ul-Mashaek Mokhdum Sheikh Shah Jalal Mozorrodh Bin Muhammed.

Shah Jalal's father was contemporary to Mawlana Jalal Uddin Rumi. Rumi's Mazzar is also situated in Shah Jalal's birth place, Konya, Turky. His ancestors came from Yemen, hence he is also called the Mozorrodh-e-Yemen. Shah Jalal was raised by his maternal uncle, Syed Ahmed Kabir in Mecca. He became a Hafiz (those who know the holy koran by heart) and also became proficient in Islamic theology.

Legend is, that one day his uncle gave him a handful of earth and ask him to go to Hindustan with the instruction that whichever place in Hindustan matches this earth completely in smell and color, he should settle down for preaching and establishing Islam.
