Shāh Ḥusain (1538-1599)

HUSAIN was born in A.H. 945 (AD. 1539) in Lahore. His ancestors, says the author of Tazkira were originally Kayastha Hindus who embraced Islam in the time of Feroz Shah.2 But Baba Buddh Singh is of opinion that his great-grandfather or grandfather, who became a Mussulman, belonged to the dhata clan of the Rajputs.3 Under what circumstances Husain’s family confessed the Muhammadan creed is not known.
