  • Is there an authentic historical source that Shah Jahan married Mumtaz Mahal’s sister after Mumtaz’s death? I was interested. – KALING DARUNG

  • it does not appear to be correct that sahjeha killed mumtaz!s first husband? was mumtaz airedy married before sahjjehan sought her hand?

  • Above detail about Mumtaj Mahal and Shah Jahan is wrong kindly correct it as soon as possible.

    1 mumtaj Mahal was his second wife
    2 mumtaj was merried with shah jahan first and last time.
    3 he merried with other girl not with her sister

  • sid

    is dis true r false.. am crazy about tajmahal..pls temme

  • Mumtaz married only Shahjahan, Shahjahan also known as Prince Khurram. Some of people are misunderstands this fact.

  • Some of your facts are wrong: according to wikipedia Mumtaz Mahal did not marry anyone before Shah Jahan. Yes, he used her as a baby factory but let us remember she readily consented to it. It’s remarkable that they had 14 children in the space of 19 years (they married in 1612; Mumtaz died in 1631) i.e. something like 1 child per 1.5 years :_() I did a Math on this one; at that rate he had been impregnating her barely 4-5 months after she gave birth to a new child, right within his lactation period. Condoms and protection did not exist – Such irresponsible parenting! While he clearly had several other wives and concubines to choose from (he was fucking them as well). Clearly, Shah jahan was one hell of a horndog and he found his ideal nympho in Mumtaz. They must be having sex right until her 6th or 7th month of pregnancy;

    If we were to colonise another planet in future and populate it with humans, we would get best results by sending 100 Muslim couples there. Within 2-3 generations, that planet will be congested full!

    Mumtaj’s real name was Ajumand Bhanu she was in love with a guy call Siraj but (Meherunnesa) Nur Jahan pursuaded her niece
    (Ajumand) to marry (Khurram)Shah Jehan Arjumand was very beautifil she was from an Iranian family her father was Nur Jahans brother.
    I am not surprised that Shah Jehan had severan wives his father Jahangir had more than eight hundred women in his herem

  • Alwayz cool

    i cant understand dat y muslims r sooo much intrsted in having sooooo many children… its like forming a new cricket team..hahahahaha..& if dat horny dog shah jahan loved her so much ..he shud use a protection 4 dat.. & if he realy wanted childrens 4m her… den he shud hv a knowledge dat she is olso a human being…! not a factory!

  • Theresa

    pretty Mumtaz Mahal was forcefully exposed/married to Shahajan by Nur Jahan, her aunt(later mother-in-law) and father Altaf Khan to keep the empire to themselves. Since, emperor Jahangir was an addict.Ordering Mumtaz to not to leave a single moment away from Shah Jahan resulting 14 children in a short span &lost her life. Other wives were not allowed near /if bore children ,were killed (even Shah Jaha’s poor brothers were killed by Mumtaz’s Father creating negative stories about them -Facts only Allah Knows -Politics no father no relatives!
    Stolen wealth from smaller Hindu kings after the victory of war, Moghals didn’t know what to do so started spending on constructing tombs & other stuffs .there is no love for any human- at the end what did he gain? saying is true “what goes around that comes around”

    Please do enough research b4 pointing finger at symbol of “ETERNAL LOVE”..

    1.
    A wife is a wife.. It doesnt matter if she’s 1st, 2nd or 3rd.. Mumtaz wuz his 3rd wife not, 4th..

    2.
    At the age of 14, Arjumand Banu Begum (Mumtaz Mahal) was engaged to Prince Khurram(Shah Jahan) in 1607 and she was married to him in 1612.. Shah Jahan was only husband Mumtaz had..

    3.
    During 19 years of their relationship, they had 14 children.. This shows howmuch they loved each other coz this shows tat Shah Jahan used to spend all his time with his 3rd wife, Mumtaz Mahal..

    4.
    There is no proof anywhere that Shah Jahan married Mumtaz’s sister.. If you have, show me !!!

  • NAGENDRA J

    Doubt 1: Mumtaz was Shajahan’s 4th wife out of his 7 wives. Where is love?
    Clarification: Shah Jahan built the Taj Mahal only for Mumtaz, his 4th wife. This is Love!
    ReClarification: Its being portrayed like he built it for love but the real reason is he wanted to do something to live his name for long time. so he used the word “Love”

    Doubt 2: Shahjahan killed Mumtaz’s husband to marry her. Where is Love?
    Clarification: Shah Jahan loved Mumtaz so much that he killed her husband to get her. This is Love!

    ReClarification: So anyone can kill anyone’s husband to get her. That is called Canniballism NOT LOVE

    Doubt 3: Mumtaz died in her 14th delivery. Where is Love?
    Clarification: Do you need any more proof of how much he actually loved her?

    Reclarification: so LOVE == Number of Children. which is not the case and if everyone tries to prove it :-(. Love can be expressed in much better way not only giving 14 times making her pregnant.

    Doubt 4: After Mumtaz’s death, Shah Jahan married her sister. Where is Love?
    Clarification: Shah Jahan loved Mumtaz to such an extent that he married her sister in whom he saw Mumtaz’s reflection. This is Love!

    Reclarification : Thats LUST

    • Hisham

      1.As Mumtaz Mahal lay dying, she asked four promises from the emperor: first, that he build the Taj; second, that he should marry again; third, that he be kind to their children; and fourth, that he visit the tomb on her death anniversary.so i think your reclarification may fail here.
      2.According to many sources mumtaz had only one husband that was prince khuram/shajahan so agen the reclarification fails
      3.Its not only children he had given her full rights and even given her his imperial seal, the Muhr Uzah. and in some places it is said her mother and father killed the babies in other wifes and didnt allow them near shajahan even and made stories to kill his brother’s even to not loose the throne.reclarification agen gets in a dbt here
      4.as in 1st i said it was one among her 4 wish to do so.and Apparently after her death, Shah Jahan went into secluded mourning for a year.[8] When he appeared again, his hair had turned white, his back was bent, and his face worn.

  • Must Read
    Shah Jahan was in love with Mutaj…. Bez he had seen so much of simplicity and love towards mankind in her whereas he himself was not following it. Compare to other wives she was such a lovely women by nature. If a person is in love with some one this deeply, it surely shows that how addorable was mumtaj. Shah Jahan’s love for her was so eternal. The amount of love he has given to her equally he had gain same amount of hatred from others like his other wives and children… Mutaj was dead while giving birth to 14th child bez she deserve heaven.. Just imagine if she was alive wat was the trauma she used to suffer in other old age bez of this many childrens… Shah Jahan has enjoyed and equally has seen hell in his life…. but Mumtaj has seen heaven when she was alive and dead also… leave the king for some time now, just imagine people come to see taj mahal for over the world… it means wat kind of nature she had,,, simply superb…. Being good human is alright… but being extra ordinary good human in the hands of cruel person is some thing to think of… Thank you

  • Subashini Menon

    Shah Jahan was in love with Mumtaz and it shows very clearly tha he loved her most among all his other wives.Come on, the proverb ‘Love is blind’, Love knows No boundaries,no borders and no barriers, is very true.Don’t you agree? It is ‘love’that keeps all of us going day in and day out. Love for friends ,parents, neighbours,animals,plants,environment etc.Nothing is impossible when you are in love right?

  • ayan

    This is only rubbish n rumours okk dis ain’t true I cn prove dat

  • Hi Am still Wonder By Hearing That Shahjahan Killed Mumtaz First Husband Ist true Please Answer Me

  • Mukesh kumar

    what the f d given information is incorrect.

  • ouestion 4
    shah jahan promised to get married again after her death

  • lalitha

    there is no love b’cuz just by building something in some ones name does not mean that u love her so much. and the love is true it should be to only one person i think. he would naturally would have been touch with his other wifes also. but just giving 14 childrean does not mean its love if she did not have the capability of giving birth to the childeran then he will not being loving her

    • Hisham

      Its not just giving childrens.Mumtaz Mahal was Shah Jahan’s trusted companion.His trust in her was so great that he even gave her his imperial seal, the Muhr Uzah.and at that time 14 children was not something so different.Even if u check 3 generations before in india,most will be having 8-12 children.moreover after her death, Shah Jahan went into secluded mourning for a year. When he appeared again, his hair had turned white, his back was bent, and his face worn.in 14 about 7 children were dead on childhood itself and 2 times she had twins. According to the official court chronicler, Motamid Khan (as recorded in his Iqbal Namah-e-Jahangiri), the relationship with his other wives “had nothing more than the status of marriage.

  • who cares about shahjahan and mumtaz

  • *Did any other king build atleast a small hut for his queen as a monument? SAJAHAN HAS DONE IT.

    *You people are fussing saying that she died when she gave birth to the 14th child. At that time 14 childred was nothing. Remember he lived with her for 19 long years. IS IT NOT LOVE?

    * No proof to say Mumtaz was married before.SO HE DID NOT KILL THE HUSBAND.

    *After her death he mourned for her for two years without seeing anybody. WILL ANY OF THE PRESENT YOUNG MEN DO THAT?

    THE BAD THING WHICH HE DID IN THE NAME WAS HE CUT THE ARCHITCTS HANDS WHICH IS REALLY CRUEL. IT MAY BE HE WAS BLINDED BY LOVE.

  • Anum

    First of all,Shah Jahan did love Mumtaz Mehal ..if he hadnt loved her y wud he built a tomb for her or mention her the most or claim to love her?as for the children it was their personal life no one asked u ppl y are u producing children ?they gave birth to so many children to be strong against enemies. Another thing which some ppl are terming muslim to producing so many children n then remaining them illeterate shud look into their own country India now…for God sake their hindu population is more than many countries muslim or christains together…
    N last but not the least , he didn’t married mumtaz mehal sister …
    Plzzz do not alter history n don’t mention a dead person either it be a real person in ur life or history or on tv….when they die let them be in peace as they are already in their graveyard n will be questioned n punish or rewarded for what they do in this life

  • Not necessary

    @Anum:
    Arrey Idiot, first understand the topic & then post it. You ask us to look at Hindu population in India?? Moron, in India (Hindustan- Meaning Place of Hindus), obviously Hindu population will be majority. Applying your logic, can we say look at american Christians, they are breeding like pigs? We can’t. Right?
    And you blabber about not to go by history books & history tv channels and claim something. Dumbass… Where did you learn anything about how taj mahal was built?? Were you baby sitting the laborer’s kids while they were building taj? And for Fuck’s sake- The masons’ hands were cut after the taj was built. Isn’t this cannibalism?? Where the hell is love you tell me?
    Taj is just a selfish, brutal way to of people who craved for identity. No wonder it is marvelous structure. But look how many lives did it cost
