Muhi al-Din Muhammad (c. 1618 – March 3, 1707), commonly known as Aurangzeb lit. 'Ornament of the throne' and by his royal name Alamgir I, lit. 'Conqueror of the world', was the sixth Mughal emperor, reigning from 1658 until his death in 1707.

Under his reign, the Mongol empire reached its peak with a territory covering almost the entire Indian subcontinent.

Widely considered the last effective Mongol ruler, Aurangzeb compiled the Fatawa 'Alamgiri and was among the few monarchs to fully establish Sharia law and Islamic economics throughout the Indian subcontinent.

Aurangzeb belonged to the aristocratic Timurid dynasty, held administrative and military positions under his father Shah Jahan (r. 1628–1658), and was recognized as an accomplished military commander. Aurangzeb was viceroy of Deccan in 1636-1637 and governor of Gujarat in 1645-1647. He jointly administered the provinces of Multan and Sindh in 1648-1652 and continued his expeditions into neighboring Safavid territories. In September 1657, Shah Jahan appointed his eldest and liberal son Dara Shikoh as his successor, a decision repudiated by Aurangzeb, who proclaimed himself emperor in February 1658. In April 1658, Aurangzeb defeated Shikoh's allied army and the kingdom of Marwar at victory. Aurangzeb's decisive victory at the Battle of Samugarh in May 1658 cemented his sovereignty and his suzerainty was recognized throughout the Empire. After Shah Jahan recovered from his illness in July 1658, Aurangzeb declared him incompetent to rule and imprisoned his father in Agra Fort.
