Mahomed Kasim Shah Ferishta, a Persian historian was born at Astrabad on the borders of Caspian Sea in 1570 CE. He came to Bijapur in 1589 and spent remainder of his life under the immediate protection on Ibrahim Adil Shah II. who commissioned him to write the general history of the Muslims in India. Ferishta presented the first draft of his history to Ibrahim Adil Shah in 1606 AD and spent the rest of his life revising it. In the introduction of his work he gave a summary of the history of India prior to the time of the Muslim conquest, and also of the Arab conquest of the Indian borderlands. Ferishta is reputed as one of the most trustworthy of Oriental historians. his work has come to be regarded as a classic and still maintains a high place as an authority.
