This shaikh was a sort of patron saint of the mariners in the India and China trade, who made vows of offerings to his shrine when in trouble at sea, and agents were employed at the different ports to board the vessels as they entered, and claim the amounts vowed, which generally came to large sums. Applicants to the shrine for charity also used to receive circular notes payable by parties who had vowed. When the recipient of such a note met anyone owing an offering to the shrine he received the amount on presenting his bill endorsed with a discharge (Ibn Bcctuta, ii, 90-91).

P. 562. Tangi-Badakhshan. This precise expression is used in the Akbar-Namcch as quoted by Quatremère (Not. et Extr. xiv, Pt. i, 222).
