Sultan Abu Syahid Shah was the sultan of Malacca from 1444 to 1446. Despite the fact that Malacca was a Muslim kingdom, Syahid Shah was a practicing Hindu.He styled himself as Raja Sri Parameswara Dewa Shah. His predecessor, Sultan Muhammad Shah had alleged a meeting with the Prophet Muhammad and converted to Islam. Syahid Shah on taking a Hindu title represented a traditionalist reaction in Malacca against Islam, the new religion. He reigned for only seventeen months, after which he was murdered in a plot allegedly conspired by the Tamil Muslim Bendahara (Prime Minister), Tun Ali. Syahid Shah was then given the title Abu Syahid which means the Matyred King.
