At this time, when the Age was praying to the daily-increas-ing Fortune, and there was a new diurnal market of thanksgiving, the world was made of a musky fragrance by the shedding of the 'Attar (otto of roses) of Spring. Small and great were seized by new joy. The world-adorning king's diadem gave new lustre to custom, and made the Earth the envied of Heaven.


The world's lord once more adorned the Earth.
He made Time and the Terrene like Paradise.

On Saturday 11 Rabī'-a-ānī 995, 10 or 11 March, 1587, after the passing of 5 hours, 27 minutes, the fountain-head of light filled with glory the Sign of Aries. The spiritual and temporal ruler sate on the throne of gratification of desires and of justice. Each day there was a new feast, and one of the grandees of the court presided over it. On the 16th the Khān-khānān and 'Aẓdu-d-daula came from Gujarat and paid their respects. An order had been given that as that country was tranquil, the general should come to court, and make over the affairs of the province to 'Aẓdu-d-daula, Qulīj K., and Khwājah Niāmu-d-dīn Aḥmad Bakhshī. Or if he thought it better that he should remain there, he was to send to court Qulīj K. and Khwājah Niamu-d-dīn Aḥmad. As the country was quiet, he set off on a swift camel, and made the long journey in the course of fifteen days. Mīr Fatḥ Ullah from his great desire of service came also. Nūr Qulīj, Qāẓī Ḥasan and other gatherers of auspiciousness, who had accompanied them, were admitted to a reception. At the close of this day, M. Yūsuf K. came from Bihar and did homage. The lord of the universe came out on the throne of fortune. His obedient children, his other relatives, the great nobles, and the gatherers of contemplative and practical wisdom sate here and there.


A wondrous banqueting-hall brightened the heavens,
Such as the stars have not seen in their dreams;
Eyes were bewildered by beholding it.
Wisdom became tongueless, and the tongue became ear.

Crowds of men obtained their desires, and there were varied delights. At dawn H.M. visited the garden of Shahbāz K., and thanksgivings to God were renewed.

One of the occurrences was that the government of Zābulistān was restored to Zain K. Koka. As it appeared that the Rajpūt clan behaved with injustice to the subjects of that country, and that 518 Kuar Mān Singh did not look closely into the case of the oppressed, and disliked that cold country, it was taken from him, and he was appointed to chastise the Tārīkīs, and his fief was assigned to him in the eastern districts. On the day of the culmination (sharaf) an order was given that the Kokaltāsh should hasten from Begrām to Kabul and exercise watchfulness and the distribution of justice. The orders were carried out, and Zābulistān became civilized.
