Tuhfat al-Mujahidin : A Historical Epic of the Sixteenth Century

By: Shaykh Zainuddin Makhdum
  • Translator:S Muhammed Hussain Nainar

First written in Arabic in the late sixteenth century, Tuhfath Al-Mujahidin is a pioneering historical work dealing with the struggles of the Malabar Muslims against the Portuguese colonisers’ encroachment in India, and the rise of Malabar as a medieval naval force under the Zamorin of Calicut. Based on the author’s own first hand information of events and what he could gather from reliable sources, it was written to motivate Muslims for the struggle against the invading Portuguese. Thus the republication of this anti-colonial manifesto could not have been more timely at a time when Muslims continue to be the only obstacle to the Western imperialistic ambitions.This translation of the Tuhfat is extensively annotated with more than 200 notes explaining local backgrounds and clearly identifying the names mentioned in the original Arabic work. The Tuhfat is compulsory reading for anybody trying to learn about post-Cordova episodes of Muslim history.
