Sultan Muhammad Shah (1424–1444) was the third sultan of Malacca. He is the son of Megat Iskandar Shah. He ruled Malacca from 1424 to 1444.[1]:246 He was succeeded by Sri Parameswara Dewa Shah. He was popularly known as Raja Tengah or Radin Tengah. At first he took the title Seri Maharaja, but then he converted to Islam, because of the possibility of marriage with the daughter of Tamil Muslims. He had two sons, Raja Kassim and Raja Ibrahim.

The dream[edit]

It was said that one night the king had a dream. He dreamt that he saw Prophet Muhammad clearly and the Prophet subsequently told him a ship from Varanasi would anchor at the time for afternoon prayers, and the king was to follow the directions of the man who would come out of the ship to pray. With that, the Prophet disappeared from sight. Sure enough, everything described in the dream happened.
