4). Migration from Derajat (Tiba Fazil Shah) to Dera Ismail Khan:

Syed Ameer Shah S/O (Son of) Hazrat Syed Fazil Shah—a monkish and dervish natured person—was at the pinnacle of knowledge and blessings. Syed Ameer shah had immense comprehension of the religious matters and was a Hafiz-e-Quran (a person who has memorized the Holy Quran). He spent most of his time worshiping Allah. He was blessed with five sons.

  1. Syed Wilayat Ali Shah was the eldest
  2. Syed Fateh Darya Shah was the second eldest
  3. Syed Qutab Ali Shah was the third eldest
  4. Syed Abbas Shah was the fourth eldest
  5. Syed Inayat Ali Shah was the youngest

Unfortunately, Syed Inayat Ali Shah did not live long and died at an early age.

It was revealed unto Syed Ameer Shah (Rematullah Aliha) to migrate to the city of Dera Ismail Khan in the Service of the Allah and serve Allah’s purpose though the preaching of Islam. Upon receiving the imperative Syed Ameer Shah sent his eldest son Syed Wilayat Ali Shah—an erudite scholar of the religion and a stable personality—along with his youngest son Syed Inayat Ali Shah to embark on a journey towards Dera Ismail Khan. Whereas,  Syed Fateh Darya Shah—a scholar, a hafiz-e-Quran, and an expert in the life history of the prophet Muhammad (SAW), and a pious man—was told to serve the community by spreading the word of Allah and helping the people have a better understanding of Islam while staying put at Tibba Fazil Shah. All of the descendents of Syed Fateh Darya Shah live within the vicinity of Tibba Fazil Shah to date. However, Syed Ameer Shah along with his two sons- Syed Wilayat Ali Shah and Syed Inayat Ali Shah- migrated to Dera Ismail Khan in 1838 AD ~ 1255 Hijri.

3). Re-Marriage of Syed Talha Zinda Noori:

Syed Talha was a down to earth and highly spiritual man. He had extensive knowledge in the areas of mathematics, oneiromancy, health and fitness, and Fiqh. (religious); therefore, as a result people from near and far soon came to know Syed Talha’s personality. Meanwhile, a local Hindu chief who was also a large farmer visited Syed Talha for some spiritual guidance and prayers that were fulfilled very soon; thus impressing the chief immensely. The chief became a true follower of Syed Talha; accepted Islam along with his whole tribe and started to be in Syed Talha’s service most of the time. This service got the chief great respect from Syed Talha over time. Upon consistent display of willingness and request Syed Talha married his daughter. Syed Talha and this kind hearted woman bore two children; the elder son Syed Muhammad Aalam Shah died without any children and the younger son named Syed Himmat Ullah Shah lived out his natural life in this area with his family. Due to the relentless and persistant efforts of Syed Talha, Islam got properly introduced in this area and spread near and far. This chain continued to Syed Talha’s grandson Syed Inayat Ali Shah and his furthermore to Syed Inayat’s grandson Syed Fazil Shah. With the passage of time each new generation leader choose his own area apart from the central home base of Syed Talha to help branch out more, thus the original area where Syed Talha came and settled got named after him as “Tibba Talha Zinda Noori” where the area where Syed Fazil Shah anchored got named “Tibba Fazil Shah”.

After his arrival in Derajat Syed Talha kept in touch with his family in Batala as well and did even visit them from time to time. Even though these visits were rare but did prove to facilitate the update of the family trees on each end. These visits, marriages, and exchange of gifts are the primary reasons that the Syeds of Derajat were close to the Syeds of Bilot, Batala, and Uch Sharif for many many generations from Syed Talha to Syed Fazil till the later part of 1977.
