Maulai Sheikhpeer Saheb(QR.) Date of Wafaat: 22nd Shabaan-ul-Kareem Ranpur features in the history of Dawat since ancient times. Mumineen resided here even when the seat of Dawat was in Yemen. Maulai Sheikhpeer Ibn Dawood (QR.) resided here. He was of Kathyawaari origin and was amongst the Hudud of the 24th Dai Syedna Yusuf Najmuddin (RA) and Syedna Jalaal Shamsudin (RA).
King Humayun attacked Gujarat during Maulai Sheikhpeer's (QR.)era. Bahadur Shah, King of Gujarat at the time, fled to Ranpur and looted Ranpur and Morbi.
