Mehmood begda and Mohammed Lodhi

After the death of Ahmed Shah his son Mehmood Begda become the king at very tender small age, Mehmood Begda was a very powerful and brave king. He won many forts and palaces because of which he was known as Begda.

At that time Mohammad Lodhi was the king of delhi.One person came to the court of Mohammed lodhi and requested in the court of lodhi that in Madhya pradesh, Dhar District there is a Village called Mandavgad, it has a boundary of 70 kilometer

Mandavgad was surrounded by 12 small villages. King of that area was a very Tyrant, Rude and Anti religion. He made a 24 foot huge idol (Dev). He had a big Jail in which he had kept many people. Every day he used to kill a person from his kingdom and from his blood he used to put Tilak to the IDOL and to himself also. All the people of his kingdom were scared of the King.

The king had many Magicians, Tantriks, Hugoori and Many people who were very well versed with Black Magic, Evil Spirits, Bad Curses. Any king who attacked Mandavgad had to face defeat and nobody was willing to help the poor people.

That person complained to Mohammed Lodhi and asked his help to get rid of the Tyrant king and save thousands of people from his clutches. Mohammed Lodhi said that Mohammed Begda is a very Brave king of Ahmedabad and he can surely win Madavgad and free all the people from his cluthes so Mohammed Lodhi sent a message to Mahmood Begda to help the people of Madavgad and attack Mandavgad.

When the complain reached to king Mahmood Begda he was very angry and decided to Attack as soon as possible. He sent a message to Unnava for Dost Mohammed (Father of Sayed Ali) and asked him to come to Ahmedabad with 250 Horse riding soldiers.

Twelve thousand soldier got ready to attack Mandavgad.the battle continued for several years but Mehmood Begda could not win over the fort. He attacked several time but in vain.

Mehmood begda was very upset..he cried in front of ALLAH Subhanwataala and asked for his help and mercy..There after sombody said that in his army there is a person named Syed Ilmuddin and his Grandson is Sayyed Ali and Only Sayed Ali can win this fort for the king.

Their in Unnava marriage preparation for Sayyed Ali who was just Eighteen years of Age were going on. As call for war came to his family they did not inform him. But somehow he came to know that he was called upon by his grandfather. He responded on the call of his grandfather Ilmuddin. He asked permission from his Brother and Mother to join his Grandfather in the battlefield. Initially his Mother hesitated to permit him as she knew the result but he convinced her saying I am Sayed, Descendents of the Prophet Mohammed (Sallala ali wassalam) Aal -e- Rasool (sallalali wasslam.) So you please heartedly allow me to join the battle as it is wish of ALLAH Subhana tala, I will Inshallh win this battle, At last permission was given.

On Way to the Battlefield - ( Miswaak Tree )

Sayyed Ali started to proceed toward the Battlefield on wish of ALLAH Subhana Tala, As he reached at the Pond of Unawa he used Miswak and after that he burried that miswak near pond.

Some people standing near by saw this and asked Sayed Ali why he did so he said that if he is martyred in this battle of Mandavgad it is this place where his body should be buried..

People asked him that how will they come to know that he has been martyred..Sayed Ali said the day when he will be martyred this small miswaak will become a big Miswaak Tree.

After that Sayed Ali Made wazu and pray to ALLAH Subhana Tala, after that he thought in his heart if I received Shahadat (to die in the way of ALLAH subhana Tala) I should be burried here only.

As he reached there he visited his grandfather, it was night time, there was a strong strom(aandhi) furious wind blowed every thing, all the tents of army were carried away Except one in which Sayyed Ali was reading Quran with his grand father Ilmuddin seeing this miracle Mehmud Begda was conviced that Sayed Ali has reached Mandavgad and he is a sure Wali.(Friend of ALLAH)

Along with only one hundred twenty five soldiers he started his attack, there was a river on the way which miraculosly gave him way and the reached Mandavgad near Kokada Koh. He observed the fort of Mandavgad. It was eighteen feet high, Sayed Ali prayed to ALLAH and his horse jumped that height to reach inside the fort, The foot prints of horse are still available today. Once inside he made a tunnel from inside the Fort to help his army of One Hundred and twenty Five Soldiers to enter fort.

On seeing face of Sayyed Ali many soldiers of the king were terrified and they ran away to King complaining that they are unable to fight Sayed Ali. King was very furious on hearing this and he orderd to call all Magicians and Tantriks of his kingdom to join the war attackhing all at same a time. They tried there best but could not face of Sayyed Ali.

There was a furious and intense war, everywhere was blood …..blood and injured….and corpses. Nothing could stop Sayed Ali.
