Ziyauddin Barani History

During the rule of Muhammad bin Tughlaq and Firuz Shah, Ziauddin Barani (1285–1358 CE) was a Muslim political philosopher who lived in the Delhi Sultanate, which is currently in Northern India. His most famous works include the Tarikh-i-Firoz Shahi (known as Tarikh-i-Firuz Shahi), a work on mediaeval India that spans the time from Ghiyath al-Din Tughluq to the first six years of Firoz Shah Tughluq’s reign, and the Fatwa-i-Jahandari.

It encouraged a hierarchy among Muslim communities in the Indian subcontinent, even though historian M. Athar Ali claims that it is fully consistent with the basic ideas of Islamic thought at that time, as seen in works by his close contemporary Ibn Khaldun.

The Fatwa-i-Jahandari and Tarikh-i-Firozshahi are two of Barani’s best-known compositions. The Tarikh-i-Firozshahi provided a summary of Delhi Sultanate history up to the time of Firuz-Shah-Tughlaq. A work detailing the political values that a Muslim monarch should uphold is known as the Fatwa-i-Jahandari.
