KhankaSharif Gari Manikpur
As far as my research is concerned, two brothers from Syed family of Gardez came to India namely Syed Shahabuddin Gardezi and Syed Shamsuddin. Syed Shamsuddin stayed in south of Delhi region and his family expanded very much in that region of Delhi. Whereas Syed Shahabuddin Gardezi had something else in his mind and continued his journey and reached to Manikpur. Here is a place called Shahabad that is named after him because he was the person who had inhabited this place first. He made this place as his living abode. Most of his descendants are living in this region whereas some have migrated to other cities of Uttar Pradseh. Members of Qazi family of Manikpur are descendants of Syed Shahabuddin Gardezi.
One of most eminent Family of Sadaat were lived in Manikpur Khankasharif. They are Hasani/Hussani Sadat and most purest descendant of Sadat in Indian subcontinent. They are direct descendant of Hazrat Syed Shah Qutub al Deen Al Madani. In Khanka there is Tomb Of Hazrat Suleme Khatoon daughter of King Sher-shahSuri. The History of Khanka is very rich and can't be describe in single page. Insha-Allah I will soon post all related fact's connected to Khanka Sharif. islam92.hpage.com
