During the Sikh period, the gateway of the Mosque was used as the court house of the Nazim, while its great hall was utilized for keeping the Granth, or the holy book of the Sikhs.
The mosque was restored to the Muslims by the British Government at the commencement of the British rule.
Over the gateway of the Mosque the following Persian inscription appears:
Ba yumme hazrat j ilani Ghous Hardo jahan,
Bajae Shahnae bazar behre hadme fisad,
Ke bud chahutrao dare jurm o zulm ayan,
Bisakkt barsare bazar nazime Multan,
Barae sale binayash zebheb hatif guft,
Namud Majide'Ali Mohommed Khan'.
