Purpose: The present research aims to study historical records to verify the role of the Shiite Dynasty of Qutub Shahis in the history of India in the Islamic era.
Methodology/ Approach: This study, which is conducted by descriptive- analytical method based on library resources, has evaluated historical records about the history of India in the Islamic era and has also investigated manuscripts available in two major centers of India in order to answer the research questions.
Findings: The advent and spread of Islam in India led to fundamental developments in the history of India. The conquests of Muslim troops in India, followed by the travel and migration of Muslim scholars to India, made Indians familiar with the principles of Islam. Hence, Islam entered India both as a military power and a developed religion. From 602 Hijri/ 1181 A.D, the era ofSultan Qutb-ud-din Aibak, to the end of 1274 Hijri/ 1853 A.D, the era of Bahadur Shah Zafar, Shiite scholars and influential Shiite personages were widely present in India. At the present time, the monuments remaining of the Qutub Shahis Shiite state’s endowments are very important and the historians and tourists visiting India are eager to see them. The Indian Government has selected some of these monuments as national heritage.
