Discussions About the Shajra with M.Haq in Husainpur

Ahmadpur Pawan is a fairly large village lying on the Bhagwatpur road going towards Tilhapur.In between you find villages along the road such as Qadirpur , Medwara , Pawan , Akbarpur etc.If you are travelling from Allahabad to Pawan then the village is on your right .

The short history of Zamindars of village Pawan starts with the advent of Qazi Shaikh Naseeruddin Siddiqi who came here in 7th or 9th century Hijri along with his brothers Ruknuddin and Aminuddin and defeated the Local Bhar Chieftan of Karanpur and brought the area around Pawan under his control. The headquarters or the fortress of Raja Karan was situated where now stands the Eid Gah and its surroundings that is now known as Qabrastan area covering an area of 24 Bighas of Land. Close to the Eidgah are two large ponds where lot of earthen ware and other stonewares have frequently been found by the villagers that testifies to the fact that there had been a massive edifice earlier. It supports the local view that the entire area was named Karanpur and it was re-named Ahmadpur Pawan some 300 years ago.

Qazi Naseeruddin Siddiqi after setting up in Pawan got busy looking after his office of Qaza’at and entrusted the management of villages he got in recognition of his services from the seat of Delhi to his son. Qazi Bhikam is stated to be his son whose descendents have been living in Pawan and Husainpur for the centuries.

Being a large village, Pawan has a number of Mazras around it who had always been held by the zamindars of Pawan . Some of them are Husainpur, Karanpur, Akbar ka Pura, Bairahna, Bhoj Miyan ka Purwa, Kushwara etc. Once there was 22 land holders with 22 pattis in their respective names in Pawan.

Pawan has the privilege of being one of first villages who got a primary school in Allahabad Divison. It shows the important position Pawan held in the eyes of British Administration. The primay School in Pawan was established in 1835 and I don’t know any other school older than this one in Pargana Chail.

Now we come to the history & origin of the families residing in Pawan.

A grandson of Qazi Naseeruddin’s Grandson was Qazi Zaheeruddin Urf Zaheeran Baba whose mazar can still be visited on the roadside in Qadirpur Village (wrongly known as Kadlapur) . Qazi Zaheer’s son was Husain Miyan after whom the Husainpur village is named.
         An elaborative table to clarify the connection is as follows :-

Qazi Naseeruddin Siddeeqi (Rahmatullaah Alayhi)
Qazi Bhikam
Qazi Mir
Qazi Mamrez
Qazi Zaheeruddin ( Zaheeran Baba)
Shaikh Husain Ali (Husain Miyan) (Founder of Husainpur)

Pawan has always been a village of repute and known for its families of noble origin and high learning throughout the centurires. It had marital relations with all the top-notch families of Pargana Chail.

There are following families who have lived in Pawan, migrants are more than the originals.

1. Family of Qazian - Nimbahra
2. Family of Deputy Habeebullah - From Barethi
3. Family of Tahsildar Faizanullah - From Behka
4. Family of Chamru Miyan - From Behka
5. Family of Other Siddiqis (Shaikh) - Original Pawan but not from Qazis. Like Muhammad Ali Kumedan etc.

1. The Qazian / Nimbahra family

The foremost family of Pawan is the family of Qazi Naseeruddin himself, known as Qaziyan or sometimes the Nimbahra family. 'Nimbahra' because of their initial abode under or around an Neem Tree.This Nimbahra family produced a number of Ulama in the past century and were generally held in high esteem by their fellowmen. Movli Khuda bakhsh was the first well known Aalim Zamindar of this family in the 18th Century who died in Makkah during Haj in early 1830s , his son Maulvi Zia-ul Haq too was a big zamindar and a reputed Aalim too !

He had three sons namely Zahur ul Haq and Ikram ul Haq & Mohammd Tahir and from them are descended the present Nimabhara khandan that is represented by Muin ul Haq, Faizan ul Haq, Rizwan-ul-Haq,Mushir ul Haq including the entire Haq family .This family was known as the family of Maulvis in the past century as each generation produced two or three Maulvis at a time. Maulvi Zia ul Haq, Maulvi Manzoor ul Haq , Maulvi Zahurul Haq, Sana-ul-Haq "Falak" etc to name a few.

2. The family of Deputy Habeeb-Ullah ( Migrant)

The second important family is a migrant Siddiqi family from Barethi. One Meer Miyan of Barethi got married into the Mohal Qaziyan known as Bakhri of Pawan in 1842 and from him descended Shahamat Ali who inherited property from his mother and maternal aunt both and that contributed towards his rise as a leading zamindar of Pawan surpassing the original family.After his death came Asadullah , his son who with his smart management  paid off all the debts and got the estate re-organised with an exemplary support from his capable sons Azeemullah and Habeebullah. Luck favoured this family and  Habeebullah rose on to become a Deputy Superintendent of Police with meritorious services and was awarded the title of Khan Bahadur in 1915 with a grant of 15 villages of 16 Annas shares.  Khan Bahadur Shaikh Habeeb-ullah  made further purchases of shares in villages like Kuswan , Kasenda , Asrauli etc (in toto 10 more villages )and at one point of time became the biggest land-holder in Pargana Chail. 

Khan Bahadur Deputy  Shaikh Habeeb Ullah Sahib

The Book of Indian Who's Who of 1913 mentions Dy Habibullah
His son Mahbub Ullah , Matloobullah and Deputy Mansoob ul ullah etc are very well known. Deputy MansoobUllah was an exemplary police officer having received several service medals + he was considered to be the largest land-owner at the time of Partition of the country. Here we have two of his photographs.

Above is the shajra of Deputy Habibullah's descendents
From MasoodUllah came Mahmoodullah and Wadoodullah - WadoodUllah had Mahfooz Ullah, Maudood & IrfanUllah
From Matloobullah came Hizbullah
From Mansoobullah came Rizwanullah, Masood Ullah( Pak), Asrar Ullah,Saeedullah and Abdullah
From Masroor Ullah came Mansoorullah, MashhoorUllah,Azizuddin , Yasir & Samar
From Manzoor Ullah came a daughter Ghazala Bibi

3.Family of Chamru Miyan

This family is descended from one Ashraf Ali alias Chamru Miyan who came and settled here most probably from Behka in late 17th Century. Mohammad Mubin Sahib and Nijabat Ali in the last century were the famous persons from this family of Bakhri. Today this family is represented by Mohammad Yamin Mazhar , Tazmin Ahmad and Majeed Akhtar (Puttan) Sahiban etc. Ausaf Usmani (Siddiqi) s/o Majeed Akhtar in Kuwait represents the same family.

4. Family of Tehsildar FaizanUllah
Shaikh Faizan Ullah , Tehsildar 

This is again a migrant from village Behka known as Tehsildar khandan. One FaizanUllah ,a Tehsildar from Behka got married in Bakhri and after purchasing shares in Pawan he finally chose to settle down in Pawan. Imtiaz Ullah , Raja Bhai ,Haleem Ullah, Islam Ullah and Fateh Ullah are from this family of Behka.

Tehsildar Faizan Ullah of Behka had four sons, Rahmatullah , Nemat Ullah , Farhatullah and Shafqatullah.

Rahmatullah had three Ziaullah, Hashmatullah and Sharafat Ullah.
Jb. Sharafatullah Marhoom

Whereas Ziaullah had only a daughter, Shafqatullah had a son named Hashmatullah and Sharafatullah who was a successful lawyer had six sons namely Basharatullah (Karachi), Shafaatullah (Florida, USA), Shariatullah (Canada), Mashiatullah (Aligarh), Musaratullah (Karachi) and Izzatullah (Nigeria).

Rahmatullah’s second son Hashmatullah had Shafqatullah  and a daughter .Now  Shafqatullah has a son Sohaib Muhammad along with three daughters.

Ne’amatullah had Saleemullah, Kaleemullah and Aleemullah. Now Saleemullah had Islamullah, Fatehullah, Inamullah, Ishtiaqullah, Nasratullah, Farasatullah, Saleeqah & Rasheedah. Kaleemullah had Raja Bhai, Imtiyazullah, Ghufranullah. Aleemullah had Haleemullah, Rehanullah and Brothers.

Islamullah had Mushtaqullah and Shoaibullah, Inamullah have Izhar & Rafaqat , Nasratullah has Faizanullah
Farhatullah had nabiullah
Shafqatullah had Saifullah.


One of the privileged possessions of Pawan was a Bakhri.Legend says that during the period 1830-1910 there was a cluster of 52 interconnected and well-networked houses that was known as Bakhri. This was the largest housing group in Chail ever and I don’t think we would ever see such a housing society again. Women went from one house to the last house without stepping out of her Dahleez. This was a unique collaboration and a dream now a days ......

Now about the historical figures of Pawan viz.  Muhammad Ali Kumedan

Muhammad Ali Kumedan was a celebrated military genius of 17th Century who worked under Haidar Ali and TIpu Sultan and fought for him during the 1st and 2nd Maratha Wars and the wars against the British as well. After his voluntary retirement, Muhammad Ali came back to his village and constructed his residence known as Mahal with an adjacent Mosque in Purab Thok. The mosque is still in a good shape but the Mahal is into ruins.  Reason being that his sons from his second marriage in Mysore did not come to Pawan while he had no issue out of his first marriage here at home. Lack of care and maintenance has taken a toll and the entire area will be in ruins some years from now.

Here are few captions from the book about Haidar Ali written by NK Sinha that proves the existence of Muhammad Ali Kumedan in Haidar Ali’s army.

Among the other notables of yester years from Pawan were Islam Ahmad and Zakir Ali in army while Basharatullah, kalimullah, shafatulla, ziaullah, aijaullah were all advocates.

Two great literary figures from Pawan

Dr.Syed Aijaz Husain 
Few would know that the former head of the dept of Urdu at Allahabad University and one of the most renowned Urdu critics and writer of modern era Professor Syed Aijaz Husain was originally from Pawan. His father Mohd Shafi was in Police Department. He belonged to the Shaikh family of Pawan but since he became a Shia under the influence of his maternals who raised him , he usd Syed with his name. He successfully hid this fact of his origin & lineage during his life time.

Dr Mohammad Sabir, the leading Turkologist of South Asia, who pioneered Turkish studies in Pakistan was born in Pawan in 1935, Dr Sabir had a keen interest in Turkish language and began learning it with the books.While doing his BA at Allahabad University, Dr Sabir’s fascination drove him to learn many dialects of the Turkish language from a Central Asian Turk in Kanpur back in 1954 which he took to such proficiency that he began contributing articles to 'Hilal', a Turkish periodical.  In 1954, he migrated to Pakistan and obtained a master's degree in Islamic History from Karachi University in 1958. Having been awarded a scholarship by the government of Pakistan the same year, he went to Turkey and got his PhD in 1961 from Istanbul University. His doctoral dissertation, written in Turkish, was on Mir Ali Sher Nawai and was partially published from Istanbul University in 1966. He edited the first Turkish-Urdu dictionary in 1968 not only in the sub-continent but also in the world.As a former Chairman of the Department of Islamic History and Dean of the Faculty of Arts at Karachi University he taught Islamic history and modern Turkish language at the KU till his retirement in 1995.Dr Muhammad Sabir died in Karachi on November 8, 2009.He is survived by his two sons Tughral Sabir and Captain Balban Sabir.

Pawan is one of the foremost villages to establish a well maintained and properly managed Madarsa for Deeni Uloom and for this venture only the residents of Pawan are worthy of appreciation. This Madarsa attracts students out of Chail and their lodging & fooding is taken care of by the Management itself.


Husainpur is infact a Muhalla of Pawan and not an independent village. It was originally a Mazra of Pawan founded by Husain Ali Miyan of Pawan but in the first half of 18th century few families of Pawan shifted to Husainpur permanently and thus a Mazra became a Mohalla of Pawan. Few other families followed the suit and gradually it attained the importance amongst the Chail Fraternity during the last century. Today Husainpur is home to 7/8 families and sometimes outshines it in vibrancy and vivacity.

Shaikh Husain Ali’s had few sons but only two had further generations namely , Hashim MIyan, and Shareef Miyan .
A)    Shareef Ali had Dost Muhammad who had Ummeed Ali & Sharaf Ali.

Shaikh Ummeed Ali who had four sons and 1).Darwesh Ali – Lawalad 2).Shahadat Ali – had two daughters only, no son. 3).Badar-ud-din – who had Mendu Miyan ( Lawalad) and two daughters married in Manjh Kalan,Mahgaon.4)Sabit Ali -  
Shaikh Sharf Ali had Sa’adat Ali who had Ghulam Jeelani who had three sons Abdullah, Abdul Wahhab and Abdul Rahman.

(i)            Abdullah had Abdul Qayyum and Saeeduddin , Abdul Qayyum had  Samiullah. While Saeeduddin had Safiullah, Ameenullah & Obaidullah. Safiullah had Ansarullah, Asrarullah,  Saeed Iqbal, Shameem Ahmad etc  now Asrar Ullah had Shaukat & Mazhar Ullah and brothers…
(ii)           Abdul Wahhab who had Basheer-ud-Din and his son Nafees uddin, Tajuddin etc
(iii)          Abdul Rahman had  Abdul Bari  & Abdul Khaliq – Now Abdul Bari had  Akhlaq, Ashfaq & Iqbal Ahmad while Abdul Khaliq had Azeez-ur-Rahman & Habeeb-ur-Rahman  who had Fazal-ur-Rahman, Naeem-ur-Rahman and brother…..

B) Hashim Ali Had Hasan Muhammad & Shah Muhammad . Now Shah Muhammad  had Nasrullah  and now Nihal Ali who  had three sons,  Hafiz Ali , Farzand Ali, Rif’at Ali.

Hafiz Ali had Inayat Ali  and Ahmad Ali.

Rifat Ali had Ghulam Rasool , Ghulam Mehdi ,Mohammad Taqi , Haji Noor-uz-zaman & had Farrukh ali (subadar who fought in the 1830 Anglo-Kabul War ). In another words Rifat Ali is the real Patriarch of the entire Husainpur. Through his five sons are the five original families of Husainpur

    1.Ghulam Mehdi had Abdul Rasheed, Abul Shaheed, Abdul Majeed. Abdul Majeed had Mohammad Ibrahim who had Nazeer Ahmad.
    2.Ghulam Rasool had only one daughter.

   3.Farrukh Ali had Abdul Raheem and Abdul Kareem ,Abdul Raheem had Mumtaz Ahmad, Riyaz Ahmad & Niyaz Ahmad while Abdul Kareen had Hameedudin who had Siddeeq Ahmad and Shafeeq Ahmad. Siddiq Ahmad had Iltifat Ahmad (Just for reference).
       4.Mohammad Taqi had six (6) sons namely, Raziuddin, Hafiz Khaleeluddin, Hafeez-ud-din,Rafi-ud-din, Abdul Jaleel & Jameel-ud-din –
(i)Now in turn Raziuddin (No), Hafiz Khaleel had Mohammad Arbi & Mohammad Farooq. (ii)Hafeezuddin Had Ashfaqullah and Aafaqullah. Ashfaqullah had Anwarullah …..
(iiI) Rafiuddin had Mohammad Yunus who had Anwaar Ahmad and now Anwaar Ahmad had Matloob Ahmad & Zubair Ahmad Achchey
(iv)Jameeluddin who had Fakhruddin and one more brother
(v)Abdul Jaleel had Wahajuddin who had three daughters only.    
(vi) Raziuddn had no issue.
  5.Haji Noor-uz-Zaman who had Abdul Ghafoor, Abdul Lateef, Abdul Sattar, Abdul Razzaq & Majeed-un-Nisa

Abdul Razzaq had Imad ul Hasan, Wali Hasan, Abul Hasan & Ali Hasan.

(a)Imad ul Hasan had Fayyaz Ahmad who had Babu & Miyan Unwan Ahmad & brothers.
(b)Wali Hasan had Aulad Ahmad, Izhar Ahmad , Mohammad Ahmad, Ameer Ahmad , Anzaar Ahmad and brothers… Aulad Ahmad had two sons Muhammad Ahmed and Muhammad Aaqil
(‘c) Ameer Hasan Urf KOTHI WALEY who had two sons died in his life time…
(d)Ali Hasan who had Ansar Ahmad & Aijaz Ahmad (No Issue ) . Now Ansar Ahmad had Absar Ahmad (Prinicipal) who had Sajid Absar, Wahid Absar , Wajid Absar , Majid Absar

Abdul Lateef Had Riyaz-ul-Haq, Intizar ul Haq & Mumtaz ul Haq ----Now Riyaz-ul-Haq who had Siraj Ahmad who had Abrar & Rizwan Ahmad who had Habeeb Ahmad. Intizar ul Haq had Nabi Ahmad & Qadeer Ahmad . Nabi Ahmad had Shahab Ahmad & Afzaal Ahmad. Mumtaz-ul Haq has Aftab Ahmad a son.

Abdul Sattar  had Faiyaz-ul-Haq who had Wakeel Ahmad & Mukhtar Ahmad. Now Wakeel Ahmad had Raees Ahmad who had  Rasheed Ahmad and Mazhar Azeez. Mukhtar Ahmad had Mahboob Ahmad & Laeeq Ahmad

Abdul Ghafoor had no issue.                

NOTE: Janab Afroz Ahmad of Karachi has prepared a Shajra which has several fatal errors , foremost is that he has shown Qazi Naseeruddin to be the descenendent of Hadhrat Abdul Rahman Ibn Abu Bakr (RA) while as a matter of fact Qazi Sahib was from the sons of Muhammad Ibn Abu Bakar Siddeeq (RA). Thus the entire Shajra goes wrong........     


A concentrated branch of Siddiqis of Lakdi gaon (Chail Khas) shifted to Husainpur at the house of Bhoj MIyan in the last century to inherit and continue his line of succession. The sons of Faiz Muhammad of Chail migrated to Husainpur and thus established a family of Chail at Husainpur.

Shaikh Ghulam Abbas Siddiqi of Lakdi Gaon(Chail Khas) married Rabia Bibi daughter of Muharram Ali of Hussainpur and since Muharram Ali had no son. Ghulam Abbas settled permanently in Husainpur. He had two sons Karim Uddin and Qamar Uddin.

Karim Uddin had a son Masleh Uddin who had Aslehuddin, Waheeduddin and Wakeeluddin. Now Aslehuddin had Asrar Alam who had Shameem Alam 

Qamar Uddin had 2 sons Farid Uddin and Bashir Uddin from first and second wife respectively.

Farid Uddin Ahmed had one son Kabir Uddin Ahmed and one daughter Saghirun Nisa.

Now Kabir Uddin Ahmed had Najm Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Masih Ullah), Zia Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Badi Ullah), Fahim Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Rafi Ullah), Rahim Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Muhammed Ullah), Hashm Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Wajih Ullah), Nasim Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Hameed Ullah), Wajihun Nisa, Wasim Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Waheed Ullah), and Zaim Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Saeed Ullah).

1.Najm Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Masih Ullah) has Salahuddin Ahmad.

2.Zia Uddin Ahmed, an civil engineer rom Hewett Polytechnic, Lucknow,  migrated to Pakistan and thereafter re- migrated to America and settled in Chicago, were he died there in 2006.Zia Uddin Ahmed has 7 sons and 4 daughters. They are Shamim Uddin Ahmed, Kalim Uddin Ahmed, Azmat Zia (a.k.a Shaheen), Nusrat Zia (a.k.a Nasreen), Salim Uddin Ahmed, Asmat Zia (a.k.a Shireen) and Nuzhat Zia (a.k.a Zareen). Naeem Uddin Ahmed, Aleem Uddin Ahmed, Azeem Uddin Ahmed and Tasleem Uddin Ahmed. All of us have migrated to North America (USA and Canada) but Kalim and Naeem still have some business interests in Pakistan.
Naeem-ud-din Siddiqi (In US)

3 & 4 Fahim Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Rafi Ullah)   & Naseem-ud-Din Ahmad (a.k.a Hameed Ullah ) had. no issue.
5. Rahim Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Muhammed Ullah) had Wasi-ud-din , Zaki-uddin,Muiz-ud-din & Razi-ud-din.
6. Hashm Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Wajih Ullah), had Ameen-ud-din,  Muhi-ud-din, Moin-ud-din & Zain-ud-din.
7. Wasim Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Waheed Ullah) had Naseer-ud-din Ahmad
8. Zaeem Uddin Ahmed (a.k.a Saeed Ullah) had Aabid Za’eem,Aadil Za’eem,  Aatif Za’eem,

Bashir Uddin had only one  daughter Sabirun Nisa (a.k.a Alia) who got married to Master Niyaz ul haq ( Chail -Husainpur )and had 4 sons Khalid, Tariq, Shahid ( Pakistan & UK )and Qasim Niaz (In Kanpur)

Raja Miyan of Basedhi ( whose forefathers are originally from Peepalgaon) migrated to settle in Husainpur and thus he has a house there.

The famous figures from Husainpur in the past include Janab Samiuddin and Janab Nazir ul Haq Sahiban. 

Master Niyaz ul Haq who was a teacher in Govt Inter College, Kanpur in late sixties needs a special mention as he is the one who did a lot of original research on Pargana Chail but unfortunately could not see his research in print and his sons Khalid Niyaz,Tariq Niyaz,Shahid Niyaz are also worthy of Notice. Most of them are in Pakistan or UK.

Master Absar Ahmad Sahib ,the iconic principal of Mahgaon Inter College and his sons Sajid and Wajid Absar are also worthy of mention.

Subedar Farrukh Ali of Husainpur was a famous soldier in 18th century.

A branch of Qazi Family of Seondha had also been in connection with Husainpur for long due to a marital alliance and still holds some property there. Qazi Tasleemuddin , Qazi Naseemuddin etc represent the same family. Few more families from Seondha had migrated to Husainpur in the first half of 20th century AD.

And here comes the end which paves the way for a new village to be posted soon. In sha Allah

I am compiling a book based on my research on the history of muslim settlements in Pargana Chail. If you have something relevant to my quest, do forward me a copy with your family accout, Shajra me at

Assalam_Aliekum! This is Mohammad from USA; I am the youngest son of Late Nisar Ahmad of Mahmadpur. You doing the great job and I really like your hard work to putting lost history of chail. Wish you a good luck and may Allah bless you and your hard work.
My Background:
What I have been told is that we are from Behka and our grand father (Mohammad Nasir) was three brothers (Mohammad Fakir, Mohammad Shakir and Mohammad Nasir and their grandfather was Mohammad Hussain who was Tehsildar from Behka and had a control over 54 villages. Mohammad Fakir settled down in Chail, Mohammad Shakir stays in Behka (one of his grandson is Khaleed Behka) and Mohammad Nasir (my great grandfather) moved to Mahmadpur and it used to be called Nasir Ghanj. We are one of the famous siddique families from Behka and in Behka, there is tomb of Habib Shah (our ancestor). And I was also told that our ancestor was directly descended from Shiekh Baha-ud-din Zakariya of Multan.
It would be greatly appreciated if you elaborate this under chail history. I don’t know much detail but if you need more info you can contact my older brothers in Allahabad, they reside in Mumtaz Mahal.
