From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

His realname was Mir Sayyed Mohammad Marashi he was in charge of the affairs of the Holy Shrine in Mashhad.

Young Shahrukh was enthroned at Mashhad in October 1748 by Khorasan nobles and Kurdish, Turkmen, and Bayat chiefs. Two months later Ibrahim proclaimed himself shah; but he was defeated and fled. Sayyid Muhammad refused to admit him to the shrine city of Qum. Sayyid Mohammad's mother was the daughter of Safavid shah Suleiman I, and so in 1750 he was enthroned by Alam Khan Arab Khozaima and some Kurdish and Jalayirid chiefs as Suleiman II. Shahrukh was blinded but was restored to the throne after only a few months, as Suleiman II was removed and blinded.[1]
