Settlement over blood money, 1794
Settlement between Nizam, son of Haji Sharaf, who was convicted for the manslaughter of Ja‘far, son of Haji Ja‘far Qasim, and Ja‘far’s inheritors. In the absence of any witnesses to prove it was a homicide, they have forgone qisas (retaliation in kind) and have settled for one hundred tumans as blood money. ‘Abd al-Ghafur, Ja‘far’s brother, along with his mother and sister, received about two-thirds of the money. Some days later, Zaynal, the other brother, also gave his consent and received one-third of the blood money.
