Before the time of King Akbar, Jallah Jeem was called "Parganah Hakarah". The word "Parganah" was associated with that of tehsil today and "Hakarah" was because of the branch of Sutlej river track of which was this area, so this area was called "Parganah Hakarah". Mian Jallal-ud-Deen was a political and religious scholar appointed for political and religious advoisory in palace of King Akbar. When King Akbar introduced Deen-e-Elahi for political gain and distorted Islamic ideology, Mian Jalal-ud-Deen resisted and finally withdrew himself from given status and rejected Deen-e-Elahi actively by participating the revolt along with Mujaddid Alf-Sani. Later, Mian Jalal-ud-Deen shifted to Lahore and participated politically for the revival of the true Islamic ideology. After death of King Akbar, King Jahangir felt the political unstable position and feelings of detachment of the Muslim community shook social and political roots, so he re-organized actively to promote Islam. For that King Jahangir contacted Mian Jalal-ud-deen and allotted him "Parganah Hakarah" to establish and promote of Islam. So Mian Jalal-ud-Deen migrated to "Parganah Hakarah" along with his family, including his brother Mian Azim-ud-Deen, and named this area as 'Jallah Jeem'. Here he built a fort to defend the Muslim community and to fight against the Hindus, because Hindu–Muslim conflict during Eid-ul-Azha on the cow slaughtering.
