1. Shaykh Abu`l-'Abbás Qaṣṣáb (“the Butcher”), whose fame still endures, and whose tomb is still frequented.

2. Shaykh Abú Ja'far al-Ḥanáṭí. In his shrine is preserved a Qur`án said to have been written by 'Alí’s son Muḥam­mad called lbnu`l-Ḥanafiyya, which has such virtue that any person daring to swear falsely on it dies miserably within the year.

3. Shaykh-i-Záhid. His tomb is in the quarter called 'Alí-ábád, by the Gate of Zindána-kúy. Anyone who drinks wine in this quarter and passes by his shrine inevitably becomes an outcast from that quarter. (<Arabic>).

4. Shaykh Abú Turáb. His tomb is still visible by the Gate of the Mosque in the quarter of Darlabash (<Arabic>).

5. Shaykh Abú Na'ím.

6. Quṭb-i-Chàlúsí. Sulṭan Sinjar wore his mantle (khirqa) and visited his retreat, which still exists. Sinjar’s minister Naṣíru`d-Dín Muḥammad Bú Tawba hated and persecuted him, and was always trying to persuade his master that he was a hypocrite and impostor. One day at Bisṭám they brought the saint a melon. He laid his finger on it, saying, “We have killed Muḥammad-i-bí-Tawba (‘the Unrepentant’);” and it so happened that at that very moment the minister was put to death by Sinjar at Merv.

7. Qáḍí Hishám. His tomb is close to that of Shams-i-´Al-i-Muḥammad in the quarter of 'Awámma-kúy. The fol­lowing extraordinary qaṣída*, written in a mixture of Arabic and Persian, satirizing one of his contemporaries, is by him:
