When Sultan Mahomed Shah saw the signs of death approaching, he named Pheroz Shah, the son of his uncle,— he who bore the marks of nobility on his forehead,— as his heir, giving him his last wishes respect­ing his country and his army. After this, taking the apparatus of this passing world, he went to that world which is everlasting.

All the courtiers and nobles paid their homage to Pheroz Shah at that place. On the 24th of Mohurrum, 752 (A. D. 1351), he, ascending the throne, summoned all to his presence, making them all happy by his justice and liberality.

Tuin, hearing of the death of Sultan Mahomed Shah, collected the men of Soomrah, Jhareja, and Summah, and got to the rear of the army. Sultan Pheroz Shah, hearing of this, named 2,000 men, and these going all night, crossed the river, and met Tuin, and those who were with him. There was a great fight, when Tuin turned his face towards flight. The following day the Soomrah men again fought, but they met with defeat, many of them being slain. After this, from near Tatta, the Sultan turned his head, and marched towards Delhi, ordering that the troops should not march more than 5 kos a day. He built a fort at Langerah Lake, leaving Nusseer there, with 1,000 horse. He appointed Mulik Behram as the Foujdar of that country. On reaching Sehwistan, he made rulers there, Mulik Ali Shen and Mulik Tuf Kafooree. The Sultan made a pilgrimage to the sacred threshold of Shah Baz Kulundur, and to another holy place. On the attendants at these he settled daily salaries. From this he came to Bukkur, where he remained twenty days. He appointed Mulik Rookn-ood-deen his deputy there; making Mulik Abdool Uzeez Bareed the Dewan, and naming eighty unmarried men to take care of the fort. To Mulik Rookn-ood-deen he gave the title of Ikhlas Khan, and leaving all the arrange­ments of Sind in his hands, he departed. At every large place he came to he behaved liberally to the people, and made them happy. In this manner he arrived at Delhi in the month of Rujub, 752 (A. D. 1351). When he sat with great power on the throne of the Sultanut, he gave an imperial assembly, when he made all happy, by giving them presents, and to the great and small he afforded justice. On the 5th of Sufur, 753 (A. D. 1352), he went to visit his country. All the great Zemindars of the districts which he went to, came and promised to be obedient. In the year 754 (A. D. 1353), he went to hunt at Kulanoor, in the country near the hills. On returning, he built a handsome palace on the banks of the waters of the Suruswutee. He here gave the title of Shaikool Islamee to Shaikh Sudr-ood-deen, the son of Shaikh Buha-ood-deen Zukreeya, giving him leave to depart to his country. After this the Sultan took Bengal into his hands. In the year 772 (A. D. 1370) he went to Nuggurkot. When he reached the country about the hills, the people brought him ice, which had been made in pans; on seeing which the Sultan said— “When Sultan Mahomed Shah formerly came here, the people brought ice to him, that he might make sherbet; but if I had not been with him, he would not have drank this sherbet, saying that he would only drink it with Pheroz Shah. Thus, as he was so kind to me in those days, I will not drink the sherbet now until I have distributed, in his name, one hundred camel-loads of sugar in sherbet”; and he did so. Having conquered Nuggurkot, he proceeded towards Tatta, on reaching which, Jam Khair-ood-deen, who was the chief, retired to the fort which stands in the water, from which he stopped the royal army for some time. The Sultan, on account of the scarcity of grain and forage, the floods of water, and the number of musquitoes, left this as it was, and went to Guzerat, remaining there during the rains. Removing Nizam-ool-Moolk, he made Zufur Khan the governor of this country. He afterwards went in the direction of Tatta. Arriving there, Jam Khair-ood-deen asked for pardon, and came into the service of the Sultan, who looked upon him with the eye of kindness, directing that he and the other Zemindars of that country should be taken to Delhi. When Jam Khair-ood-deen reached Sehwistan, he planned in his heart to obtain his liberty in this manner— that when on the line of march, as they went along near the bank of the river, he would get into a boat, and so escape. The men who were in charge of him, finding out this, conveyed it to the Sultan, who gave orders to put irons on the Jam’s legs, and so to take him to Delhi, where the Sultan went with his army some time afterwards. He gave a Khilat to Jam Choonah, the son of Jam Khair-ood-deen, placed him over Tatta, and gave him leave to go there. This Sultan, for thirty-eight years and some months, ruled the kingdom with great power. On the 18th of Rumzan, 790 (A. D. 1388), he received death.
