Hyderabad's last Nizam Osman Ali Khan named all-time richest Indian

When you think of India's all-time richest people, what are the names that cross your mind?

No, it's not the Tatas, Birlas or Ambanis, it's Osman Ali Khan, the last Nizam (or ruler) of Hyderabad.

According to a new inflation-adjusted list of the world's richest people of all time, the Nizam, who ruled Hyderabad between 1886-1967, was ranked sixth with $236 billion.

Osman Ali Khan died in 1967 at age of 80.

Mansa Musa I of Mali ? the obscure 14th century African king - was named the richest person in all history, British newspaper 'The Independent' reported today.

With an inflation adjusted fortune of $400 billion, Mansa Musa I would have been considerably richer than the world's current richest man, Carlos Slim, who ranks in 22nd place with a relatively paltry $68 billion.

The list, compiled by the Celebrity Net Worth website, ranks the world's 24 richest people of all time. The list advertises itself as the top 25, but only 24 names appear in the list.

Although the list spans 1,000 years, some aspects of wealth appear consistent throughout history; there are no women on the list, only three members are alive today, and 14 of the top 25 are American.

The list uses the annual 2199.6 per cent rate of inflation to adjust historic fortunes? a formula that means $100 million in 1913 would be equal to $2.299.63 billion today.

Mansa Musa I ruled West Africa's Malian Empire in the early 1300s, making his fortune by exploiting his country's salt and gold production. Second on the list are the Rothschild family, whose descendants are still among the richest people on the planet.

Starting out in banking in the late 18th Century, Mayer Amschel Rothschild's finance house accumulated a total wealth of $350 billion.

Meanwhile, John D Rockefeller, third on the list, is the richest American to have ever lived, worth $340 billion in today's US dollar at the time of his death in 1937.

In comparison, the poorest man on the list is 82-year-old Warren Buffett, who at his peak net worth, before he started giving his fortune to charity, was $64 billion.

Allah know well who will go to Jannat either he or you

Kuch loog apnay aap ko nahi deykhtay kay who kya hai magar unhay buhoot jaldi rahti kay doosroon ki aur maray huway logoon ki gibat karnay mai. Yeh jo kartay hai is may buhoot gunah hai. In ki namaz Ibadat, Beard, roza, nakiyaia sub kay sub zaya hai kyun kay yeh gibat hai GIBAT KARNA APNAY MARAY HUWAY BHAI KA GOEAST KHANAY KAY BARABAR HAI agar aap Nizam ki zindagi may kahtay Nizam ko to who gibat nahi hoti thi is liyia mera mashoora hai apnay akhirat ko kharab na karo Gibat say bacho.dikhaway ka Hajj, Umra, Beard, Namaz mat karoo yeh sub Allah tumharay moo per mar phakeeyingay.
Hajj & Umra performed or not but during his period those who wish to perform Hajj he sent them to Hajj and Umra free of cost (From his personnel account). Many people benefitted with his policy and performed Hajj & Umra. Not only once but some went to Hajj several times in their life at his time.

Welfare of People

I didnt agree with you my friend, there are several hundered million muslims worldover, not everybody get a chance for Haj or Umrah,this is not in anybodys control but only by ALLAH SWT., Look at his good work he did, for the welfare of the country he ruled for, and the RABAT, buit in the Holy citis of Makkah, and Madina Munawara, which still exists and serving Hajis from AP/Specially for the pilgrims from Telengana region, Nizam Charitable trust for the poor, needy, people. Do not mix him with the individuals who gone astray and grave worshiping, this is not the 1st case and it will continue till end of the world.

What

You did haj or umrah? if you did it pray for the ones who did not do it, what is grave worshipping., if you are not involved into it pray for the ones who are doing it instead of pointing out fingers at our own people., Shame on you comming to office to write this silly comments.,

Insaan ki acchayi dekho burayi nahi

Khali Mu khol ke kuch bhi boldo bolo pehle hai YEH ....Though he didnt Perform HAJJ and UMRAH but his Contribution towards the HYDERABADI RUBAAT in Makkah is truly appreciable...And also the Hospitals and Universities and School Which he constructed in his time..Upar waale jo Comment likhe Ek TIME KA KHANA NAHI KHILAYE HUNGE KISI KO....KISI BIMAAR KI SHIFA KARNA TOH DOOR KI BAAT HAI...
Aur Rahi baat Jannat ya HELL ki woh toh ALLAH ke haath mein hai..koi 100 Hajj bhi karliya toh unn Jannat mein jara nahi bolsakte...

Perfectly Right

You commented absolutely Right...!

Khali Mu khol ke kuch bhi

Guess Jannat is for Saud Family?

Here's a Wahabi sympathiser.

What have your masters, the Wahabi-Saud family, did or doing to our Ummah even when they must have performed 1000 Hajj and Umrahs? Working hand-in-hand with the Western Nations to kill our own Ummah everywhere from Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, Bahrain, Pakistan and Syria to name a few?

Where is their wealth going? Either to Western Nations to purchase arms or doing business with Yahudis world-wide and arming terrorists like Al-Qaeda and Taliban to kill innocent people and divide out Ummah between Sunni and Shias.

Wish they could use their brain and wealth to unite our Ummah and bring back the glorious days of Muslim rule and humanity back once again before they lose their wealth and power. A recent study shows that they will be out of Black Gold-Petrol, in 50 year or so and hope they will take this seriously and be self-sufficient to survive, instead of depending on the West from little household items, forget about high-tech itmes. They are so dependent on the West.

Poor Palestinians are dying every day and living a miserable life for the last 60 years as refugees in their own country and what have these Wahabi-Saud family did to help them?

Correct your write-up

The last Nizam of Hyderabad did not rule upto 1967 as you write in your above article as after independence in August 1947 , Patel sent army into Nizam state in September that year to annex the state into Indian union.

Nizam.

Why are we discussing the Nizam`s, the man who is in grave now paying for his sins, the many cases in the court are due to him, Nizams are now history, it is better we forget them and let them remain in the history books only, in my view, the last Nizam is responsible for illiteracy and poverty of original Hyderabad Muslims.

Does not mean Jannat

He may have been the richest man but NEVER did Haj or Umrah. Look at Hyderabad Muslims today engaged in mostly grave worship and matam.

Ridiculous

Can you guarantee a person who performs Hajj will go to Jannah Or the person who did not will go to Jahannum....!

Allah knows best

The Nizam NEVER did Haj or Umrah - BUT he was the first person to expedite funds to install electric bulbs in the Haram and build dwellings for pilgrims during Haj and Umrah, only Allah knows best anyone's character and intentions.
Do not be among those who finger point, examine yourself first, foremost and stop been judgmental.

nobody knows who will get

nobody knows who will get JANNAT or hell try not to do bad things, HE Osman ali pasha made rubat in MAKKAH ALMUKARAMAH and MADINAH ALMUNAWARAH for haji's, he were the one who was sending money for the maintenence of MAKKAH ALMUKARAMAH.
How many are leaving in JEDDAH AND MAKKAH for a long period and till now they had not perform UMRAH OR HAJ, every body have their own luck our job is asking ALLAH SUBAHANAHU TALA naik hidaya and taufeeq.

He built many a rest houses

He built many a rest houses for people in Makkah, Madinah, Najaf - as well as for people of other religions in their holy cities - so that people may stay there free of cost. Lakhs of people have performed pilgrimages and have enjoyed his hospitality happily; they must surely have prayed for the Maghfira of the Nizam Osman Ali Khan out of gratitude for his magnanimity. What about you? You are nothing but billi ka goo - na leepne ke kaam ka na pothne ke kaam ka.

Riyadh
