The Bahamani Sultanate was ruled by the five dynasties namely Bijapur, Golkonda Ahmadnagar Bidar and Berar. Adil Shahi Dynasty of Bijapur was a Shia Muslim Dynasty. The Adil Shahi dynasty traces its origin back to Yousuf Adil Shah, who was the governor of the province, before creating a de facto independent Bijapur state.
