Shah Parvar Khanum's endowment, 1855

Shah Parvar Khanum, the daughter of the late Ra’is Amin from Qallat, endows some properties in the village of Qallat, after deducting the maintenance costs, for the benefit of Ta‘ziyah performers. She assigned Shaykh ‘Abd al-Nabi, the son of Shaykh Abu Turab, as the custodian of this endowment and determined the passage of the guardianship through generations: Shaykh ‘Abd al-Nabi should be followed by his male descendants and, in the absence of male offspring, by his female descendants, then again their male offspring and if not, their female offspring.
