Sial Sharif is a village in the Sargodha District of Punjab, Pakistan.

Care of the shrine

After the death of Muhammad Shams Din, care of the shrine passed to Muhammad Din[1] and, after his demise in 1909, to his son Muhammad Zia-ud-Din.[2] It subsequently passed on to his eldest son Khwaja Qamar ul Din Sialvi (7 July 1906 – 20 July 1981), president of the Sargodha branch of Muslim League who became famous for donating all his valuables to the Pakistani Army during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965. Muhammad Qamar-ud-Din later, in 1970, became president of Jamiat Ulema-i-Pakistan and member of Islamic Ideology Council, in 1981 receiving Tamgha-e-Imtiaz (Medal of Distinction) from the President of Pakistan.[3]
