Fatuhat-i-Alamgiri by Ishwar Das Nagar

Ishwar Das Nagar was the most remarkable Hindu historiographer during the reign of the sixth and last most notable Mughal monarch Aurangzeb.  He was the author of the Fatuhat-i-Alamgiri, the only literary work that was composed under the patronage of Aurangzeb who was otherwise opposed to the encouragement of arts and letters. 

The Fatawa-i-Alamgiri has been described as "the greatest digest of Muslim law made in India".
