Muhammad Ali Shah, his son Amjad Ali Shah ascended the throne.
Muhammad Ali Shah had made
every effort to ensure that the heir apparent received an excellent
education & had
therefore entrusted him to the company of religious scholars, which
instead of making him
an intelligent ruler made him a devout muslim. Thus, he became the
most deeply religious,
circumspect and abstinent ruler of Awadh. As a result, the system of
administration set up
by Muhammad Ali Shah became completely disorganized, while the
vicious officers had their
day.He died in 1848 due to cancer and was burried at the
Imambara Sibtainabad in western
part of Hazratganj, a quarter which he had himself established.
