Summary note
This document contains a deed issued to Sayyid Dilāvar Shāh son of Ḥukūmat Shāh by one of the rulers of Shughnān, granting him some property in the vicinity of Khorogh. The document is heavily damaged and the date, the name of the copyist, and other critical information is missing. The document mentions that Sayyid Dilāvar Shāh previously served as a minister (vazīr) under the ruler of Khoqand, Muḥammad Khudāyār Khān, who ruled on three separate occasions between 1844 and 1875. Hence, the document can most likely be dated to the second half of the 19th century.
