Summary note
Digital image of what appears to be the original document on which BMP046 is based. It begins with a presentation of the genealogy of Nāṣir-i Khusraw followed by some quotations in support of sayyids, followed by the presentation of the genealogy of Sayyid Suhrāb Valī. It then mentions that on the 21st of the month of Shawwāl 1083 A.H. (9 February 1673) a qāḍī court in the city of Yaftal (of Badakhshan) verified the sayyid status of a certain Khvājah Mihtar, a descendant of Sayyid Suhrab. The text then presents his genealogy. The document concludes with a list of witnesses to the attestation.
  • The date of 21 Shawwāl 1083 A.H. (9 February 1673) is mentioned in the text but it is not clear if the document itself was composed at that time. It appears to be a later copy of the original.
