Chronicle of royals

The Asaf Jahi Dynasty was a Muslim dynasty that ruled the erstwhile Indian Princely State of Hyderabad (now the state of Telangana, the Marath-wadha region of Maharashtra and the Kalyana-Karnataka region of Karnataka) in India. The family came to India in the late 17th century and became employees of the Mughal Empire. They were great patrons of Persian culture, language, and literature, and the family found ready patronage.

The family has a noble hereditary lineage through Abū Bakr ʿAbd Allāh ibn ʿAbī Quhafa [R.A] who was the senior companion and was, through his daughter Aisha R.A, a father-in-law of the Prophet Muhammad Peace & Blessings upon him, as well as the first Caliph of the Rashidun Caliphate. He is known with the honorific title al-Siddiq by  Muslims.

Sarf e Khas

Sarf-e-Khas are crown lands across the princely state of Hyderabad belonging to Asaf Jahi Nizam’s  family covering almost  10,000 square miles. The Dar-ul-Shifa was the headquarters for Sarf-e-Khas during the reign of Nizam II. Sarf-e-Khas land revenue and the resources were used to serve the royalty exclusively, until its merger with Indian Union in 1948. It was taken over by the Government of India after the accession and paid The Last Nizam and his family a sum of Rs. 50 Lakhs per annum.

On 25th January 1950, The Government of India entered into Agreement with the Ruler of Hyderabad, H.E.H The Nizam VII, Sir, Nawab Mir Osman Ali Khan Bahadur, scheduled under IV different Articles. Under Article II, the Government of India entitled the Ruler of full ownership, use and enjoyment of Private Properties movable and immovable (as distinct from state properties) held by him on the date of the Agreement. The final list of such properties were to be decided by the Arbitrator appointed by the Government of India.

Sahebzadas of Sarf-e-Khas

Sahebzadas are the young princes belonging to the Asaf Jahi Nizam’s Family, who are the descendants of Nizam-ul-Mulk, Asaf Jah I to Asaf Jah VI. Except the descendants who met their inheritance rights under vast Jagirs, Makhta’s, Kothiyat and Mahalat, the rest of the Sahebzadas were under the maintenance with monthly allowances from Sarf-e-Khas being administered by H.E.H The Nizam,  the  Administrative head of the Dynasty. The Sahebzadas were provided education by the most qualified and experienced teachers and institutions. The most qualified among them were appointed in the administration of H.E.H The Nizam’s Government and held esteemed positions. Sahebzadas were also appointed in H.E.H. The Nizam’s Secretariat, Osmania University, Osmania Hospital, Nizamia Hospital, Railway (NGSR) Administration, according to the degree of their qualification with high Salaries besides their separate monthly allowances called pensions. These Sahebzadas were the most loyal servants of the Asaf Jahi Dynasty, who helped the Nizam maintain administrative control over it’s dominion. H.E.H The Nizam VII, Nawab Mir Osman Ali Khan with the Sahebzadgan, Shehzadas and Shehzadis

Sahebzadas of Sarf-e-Khas Trust

Since, H.E.H The Nizam VII, Nawab Mir Osman Ali Khan Bahadur, surrendered the Sarf-e-Khas to the Government of India, he being the head of the Dynasty and custodian of the Private Properties had to look after the maintenance of the Sahebzadas as well as his Princes (Shehzadas). The Nizam was the custodian of several movable and immovable properties which was yet to be finalized, as per the Agreement between him and the Government of India on 25th January 1950. The Nizam was the custodian of several shares and securities as he being the head of the Dynasty was responsible for all it’s affairs and administration. In order to continue their monthly allowances, which otherwise could trigger a revolt in the Royal family, he created various trusts for the benefit of the Family members with the securities deposited by him with the Government of India. These Trusts came to be known as H.E.H The Nizam’s Trusts validated by the Ministry of States, Government of India in June 1950. The Trust created for the continuation of allowances to the Sahebzadas from the Sarf-e-Khas was created by H.E.H The Nizam VII, and the Trust Deed is represented as H.E.H The Nizam’s “Sahebzadas of Sarf-e-Khas” Trust.
