Paigah Asmanjahi Logo



The word Paigah, which means pomp and rank in Persian, was a title given by the second Nizam of Hyderabad to Nawab Abul Fateh Taig Jung Bahadur in appreciation of the royal services rendered by him. The Nawab was also conferred with the title of Shams-ul-Umra, and he became the founder of the Paigah family.

After Abul Fateh's death in 1791, his son Fakhruddin Khan inherited the estates and titles. He was given the title Amir-e-Kabir, which meant Head of the Nobles. He also married the daughter of Asaf Jah II, Sahebzadi Bashirunissa Begum in 1797. Thus began the tradition of marrying the Nizam's daughters to young men of the Paigah family.

Fakhruddin Khan's grandson through his third son was Sir Asman Jah. Fakhruddin Khan's fourth son Rasheeduddin Khan had two sons, Viqar-ul-Umra and Khurshid Jah.

Sir Asman Jah had just one son i.e, Nawab Moin Ud Dowla Bahadur Ameer E Paigah Asman Jahi alias Inayat Jung Bahadur, Minister of Industries. Nawab Asman Jah alias Nawab Mohammed Mazher Uddin Khan died in year 1898, prime minister of Hyderabad. Nawab Moin Ud Dowla Bahadur became the Ameer E Paigah.


The Four Wives

Nawab Moin Ud Dowla Bahadur had four legitimate wives and their names are Raheem Unnisa Begum, Ladli Begum, Liyaqat Begum and Mehboob Begum. Nawab Moin Ud Dowla Bahadur died in 1941 and all four were alive. Legal heirs of all four wives are still alive and they didn't receive their complete legal share yet as they have been neglected.
