Hi,
This is a Gupta period coin. Unfortunately the name of the king is out of flan in the 2nd picture which needs a 90 degree left turn.
Hence, it can be either of Chandragupta II (rare), Kumaragupta (most likely as the small part of letter reads as "maharajadhiraja" or king of the kings) as or Skandagupta.
This is much earlier than Islamic period.
Thanks,
Saikat
