Died Lahore, Mughal Empire
Education Fluent in Arabic, Persian, Urdu
Occupation Court Chronicler

Muhammad Saleh Kamboh (Urdu: ملا محمد صالح کمبوہ‎) Lahori was a noted Calligraphist and official biographer of Emperor Shah Jahan and the teacher of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. Though a widely read person,[1] little is known of the life of Muhammad Saleh Kamboh other than the works he composed. He was son of Mir Abdu-lla, Mushkin Kalam, whose title shows him to also have been a fine writer.[2] He is believed to be younger brother of Inayat-Allah Kamboh (Urdu: عنایت خان کمبوہ) [3] and worked as Shahi Dewan (Minister) with Governor of Lahore.

As a historian and a poet[edit]

Muhammad Saleh is best remembered for his work Amal-i Salih, also referred to as Shah Jahan Namah (The History of Shah Jahan), which work he completed in 1659-60 AD. Amal-i-Salih is an account of the life and reign of Shah Jahan. However, the work also includes information on Shah Jahan’s predecessors (particularly Akbar and Jahangir) and a compendium of biographies of the Shaikhs, poets, and other notables who were contemporaries with Shah Jahan. It is considered to be one of the most important original sources of events during Shah Jahan's reign.

Muhammad Saleh was known as a poet by the Persian title Kashfi and by Hindi Subhan and is also stated to be an accomplished Hindi singer.[3][4]

As a soldier[edit]

In the list of mansabdars, Muhammad Saleh Kamboh is put down as a commander of five hundred [5][6]

It is claimed by some accounts that Muhammad Saleh Kamboh served as a Mughal Admiral and unfortunately was killed while fighting alongside with his fleet against the Ahoms at Pandu on Bengal-Assam border while helping General Abdus Salam, the Faujdar (infantry commander) of Hajo, during the tenure of Islam Khan Mashadi, the Mughal Governor of Bengal.[7] The event referred to above is said to date 1636 AD which is not correct since Muhammadd Saleh was very much alive and is known to have completed his Amal-i Salih in 1659/60 AD soon after Aurangzeb (Reign 1658 AD-1707 AD) became the emperor of India in 1658 AD. According to Naimur Rehman Farooqi, the work was completed in 1669 AD.[8]

It is also stated that when Shaikh Makhdum was appointed imperial "Sadr-us-Sadur" (Chief Sadr, Chief Administrator or Prime Minister) after death of Sadr Sharif Khan during reign of Aurangzeb, Muhammad Salih Kamboh was appointed Peshdast (deputy).[9]

Death[edit]

Date of Muhammad Saleh's death is not certain.[10] S. M. Latif in his works states on unspecified authority that Muhammad Saleh Kamboh died in A. H. 1085 (1675 AD) [11] which is accepted by some writers.

A mosque known as Saleh Kamboh Mosque has been built with his name in Mochi Gate, Walled City of Lahore.[12][13] He is buried in Lahore, though his grave location is currently disputed by the owners of the property.[14]
