Moulana Moizuddin’s real name is Syed Mohammed, but he was becoming very famous with the name of Moizuddin Turkey. He was a great scholar and a famous Sufi saint of his time. It is a well known fact that he was king of Turkistan and he had left Turkistan in the search of right path of Allah and in his search in this matter he had reached Delhi and became a disciple of Hazrat Khaja Nizamuddin Auliya of Delhi.
Due to his hard endeavours and great efforts of worship he had become the special disciple of the Sheikh and the Sheikh was taken great care of his spiritual progress and for this reason he had attained greater heights of mastery in the Sufism and he had passed many mystical stages of Islam and work hard for the progress and preaching of work Islam in the foreign land.
His name as Ghulam Musrur was recorded in the book of disciples of Hazrat Khaja Nizamuddin Auliya. For many years he was under guidance and spiritual training of Hazrat Khaja Nizamuddin Auliya and he was benefitted greatly during his stay in Delhi in the company of Hazrat Nizamuddin Auliya. As per order of his Sheikh he was proceeding towards Deccan (South of India) for the propagation and preaching work of Islam in the areas which are near to Hyderabad in his old age.
During his stay in Delhi he had become close friends of Tajuddin Najfi. When Moizuddin Turkey proceeded towards Deccan so Tajuddin Najfi also accompanied with him there along with Shabuddin Surherwardi and along with his many disciples .
Upon reaching there they began the preaching and propagation work of Islam successfully and become very famous there due to their great efforts and hard endeavours for the preaching and propagation of religion of Islam in the areas of Deccan. At that time the name of Kohir was known as Ankharapatanam and which was ruled by Raja Pratap and his capital was Warangal. The Raja had constructed an underground tunnel from Warangal to Kohir. At that time Kohir City was part of the Bahmani kingdom of Bider. When Raja Pratap revolted against Bider kingdom then Sultan Hasan Gangu marched towards Kohir to fight against him but he was unable to defeat Raja Pratap in the war so the sultan was very much worried and upset with this matter. When he heard about Moulana Moizuddin Turkey and Moulana Tajuddin Najfi’s names and fame for the spiritual heights in Sufism and mystical progress so he had approached them at their place and requested them for their prayers for the success in the war against Raja Pratap of Warangal. They have accepted his request and proceeded to Bider along with him .
When Sultan Hasan Gangu Bahmani of Bider proceed along with his military for the campaign against Raja Pratap of Warangal so these great Sufi masters along with Shabuddin Suherwardi were also accompanied by the military men of the sultan. The army proceeded towards Kohir via Shaikhupura and at that time that place (Shaikhupura) was the border post of Raja Pratap and at Shaikhpura Raja Pratap was camping there with his 40,000 strong army men and there fierce war was taking place between Raja Pratap and Sultan Hasan Gangu Bahmani in which Sheikh Shehabuddin Suherwardi and Tajuddin Najafi were killed fighting bravely for the cause of Islam and its propagation . Due to the kind prayers of Moizuddin Turkey and Tajuddin Najfi, Sultan Hasan Gangu Bahamani was becoming successful in the war against Raja Pratap of Kakatiya Kingdom of Warangal.
Upon the death of Moulana Tajuddin Najfi in the war Moulana Moizuddin Turkey had called his son from Najaf and upon arrival of his son Tajuddin from Najaf the Sultan had granted him the title of “ Ainul Muluk” and also given him length of land equal to 342 bed spreads along with his royal decree with seal and signature. But he did not accept anything from the royal grants. He was uncle and teacher of Hazrat Khaja Bande Nawaz of Gulberga as well follower of the Sufi order of Quaderia and Chisti.
The name of Kohir was Ankharapatan and there was one mountain of diamonds at that place and for this reason Moizuddin named it Kohe Hera (The mountain of diamonds ) and due too much usage of this place name it had changed as Kohir instead of Kohe Hera. No information about marriage , his sons and daughters are available so it is said that he had no successors and for this reason there were no trustees from his family members are coming to the holy shrine at Kohir Sharif and from the above information it is also clear that he was died as single without marrying. In the history records his date of his death is not available and it is said that he left the world on the 15th Jamadil Akhir but the year is not available.
