Farman by Shah Sulayman

Date Shavval 1084 / 9.1.1674 - 6.2.1674
Content An annual salary (vazifah) of 11 tuman, drawn from the pious endowments (mawqufat) of Zaynab Bigum, was bestowed on Mirza Salih Tabrizi. As the original document (raqam) got lost, the descendants of Mirza Salih, Mirza Muhammad Latif and Mirza Muhammad Muhsin, requested a second one. This farman confirms the continued payment of the salary, which will be divided between the two petitioners.
