Keywords
Nawab Sadiq Muhammad Khan II, Maulvi Muhammad Azam Bahawalpuri, Bahawalpur State, British India.
Abstract

The Persian manuscript under discussion—Iqbāl Nāma-i Sa‘ādat Āyāt by Maulvi Muhammad Azam Bahawalpuri—is part of unpublished political history of the State of Bahawalpur. It was written under the orders of Nawab Sadiq Muhammad Khan II. This manuscript contains some important and historic events of the state. It is claimed to be the only available historical document of that period. Unfortunately, it is not available in any library of Bahawalpur, or of Pakistan for that matter. The manuscript is present in the British Museum Library. In this article, Iqbāl Nāma-i Sa‘ādat Āyāt has been descriptively studied for the first time. Apart from an introduction a critical evaluation of this historical source has been made.
