During the Imaamat of Imaam Mustansir Billaah (AS) Maulaaii Abdullaah (RA) was sent to Hind (Indian sub-continent) for the tableegh of Faatemi-Isma'ili Da'wat by the Imaam from Egypt . On reaching Gujarat a large number of people at Paatan accepted Imaan and gave the oath of allegiance ( Misaaq ) on the hands of Maulaaii Abdullaah (RA). Siddharaj Jaisingh being the king of Gujarat , Maulaaii Bharmal (RA) who was the Vizier of the King and his brother Maulaaii Tarmal (RA) were amongst those who embraced Islam.
Maulaaii Tarmal's (RA) revered and respected son Saiyedi Fakhruddin Shaheed (RA) was spiritually and academically nurtured by Maulaaii Abdullaah (RA) himself. Saiyedi Fakhruddin Shaheed (Q.R) was assigned the responsibility to propagate the message of Da'wat in the Waghar region. In the month of Moharram after reciting the majaalis of the martyrdom of Imaam Husain (AS), while on his way from Sagwara to Galiyakot, was attacked by a band of local dacoits (bhil-kolis) on the outskirts of Galiyakot. Being a Rajput and valiant soldier he and his companions retaliated the miscreants with much courage and valor. At the time of Maghrib, Saiyedi Fakhruddin Shaheed (RA) performed Namaaz and continued countering the dacoits till he was martyred. On learning the sad event Mumineen immediately came and performed salaat ul-janaazah and buried Saiyedi Fakhruddin Shaheed (RA) in Galiyakot. He was the first of the martyred from the progeny of Maulaaii Tarmal (RA).
Being saheb ul-ma'aajiz wal karaamaat (miracles) hundreds of thousands of visitors have been relieved of their miseries and procured their desires on performing Saiyedi Fakhruddin Shaheed's (RA) ziyaarat. Allah Ta'aala had bestowed upon him the ability to make a metal go soft as Prophet Maulana Dawood (AS) did. A phenomenal occurrence is one of the King of Waghar discriminatingly looted the revered Ghilaaf Mubaarak (grave shroud) and other Ghilaaf that were placed on the Qabr-e-Mubaarak of Saiyedi Fakhruddin Shaheed (RA) and deliberately used them as reins of horses. On placing these Ghilaaf on the horses the animals instantaneously were rendered dead. On learning this, the King immediately came to pay homage and sought pardon while replacing the Ghilaaf Mubaarak on the Qabr-e-Mubaarak of Saiyedi Fakhruddin Shaheed (RA).
