Muhammad ibn Suri (Persian: محمد بن سوری, died 1011) was the king of the Ghurid dynasty from the 10th-century to 1011. During his reign, he was defeated by Mahmud of Ghazni and his domains were conquered. According to Minhaju-S Siraj, Muhammad was captured by Mahmud of Ghazni, made prisoner along with his son and taken to Ghazni, where Muhammad died by poisoning himself.[1] Mandesh is the historical name by which the mountain region of Ghor was called .[2] The whole population of Ghuristan was taught the precepts of Islam and converted from Hinduism and Mahayan Buddhism to Islam. Muhammad of Ghori later avenged his ancestor by systematically destroying and killing Ghazni's descendants in Ghazni and Lahore.


The region was governed under a Malik named Amir Suri and the population was not yet converted to Islam.[2] Muhammad has also been referred to as Ibn I Suri,
