The Mughal Empire was a Muslim Turkish empire that ruled in the same time periods as the Ottoman and Safavid states. Akbar Shah is one of the most notable and the most controversial and negative comments made about him, although there are those who stand out from the Mughal sultans with their different performances. Akbar Shah has made many reforms and innovations in the political, economic, military, cultural and religious spheres. The most important and noticeable change in these activities has been in the religious field. He showed himself in the change in the religious field with the establishment of a new religion called "Din-i Ilahi". This innovation caused great controversy and caused social upheavals in public life. Akbar Shah was considered Akbar (the greatest) by his supporters, Akbar (the greatest) by his opponents and enemies, and Ekfer (the greatest infidel) by his lodges because of his daring in such a radical and great work and his other works. The Religion-i-Divine, which he founded, for some reason was short-lived, did not succeed in achieving the desired goal. It is possible to include many political, social and religious reasons among the reasons why it dec not succeed. Among religious reasons that provide a strong contribution to the end of this system, in general, Islamic scholars, and private accumulation as deep, effort and their courage contrary to Islam, relentlessly struggling with this new structure, Imam-I Rabbani (K.s.) it is important to mention.
