After Sooltan Ghuyas-ood-deen had turned his face from Hindoostan, and reached Khorasan in the year Hijree 599 (A. D. 1202,) he died at Herat. He was buried in the tomb which had been made for him in the Jooma Musjid of that city.

In this good garden, two doors are placed. These two doors are not closed. You come in at one door of the garden, and you go out at the other door.

In the year Hijree 591 (A. D. 1194), Sooltan Shuhab-ood-deen (the brother of Ghuyas-ood-deen) came to Hindoostan with an army, as the vicegerent of his brother. He took Mooltan and Ooch, and he sent a force, under Kooth-ood-deen Abeek, to take Sind, who, having in three months taken possession of all that country, and leaving Sasfool Muloog there, he went towards Delhi. Shuhab-ood-deen was at that time marching gently from Mooltan to Hindoostan. He took all the forts and cities as far as Delhi (the seat of the government of Hindoostan), which he conquered, and from that date Delhi became the royal residence.

Shuhab-ood-deen, appointing Kootub-ood-deen as his successor, went to Khorasan. In the mean time, the news of the death of his brother Sooltan Muz-ood-deen reached him. At hearing this he was very sorry, and at once pushed on. After reaching Ghuznee, he issued orders to all his troops to prepare everything requisite for three years, to go to Toorkistan. He then heard that a body of men of the Khokur tribe was on the road of violence near Lahore. Thinking it best to root these out, he marched in that direction, and after killing numbers of them, as he was on his return, he fell a martyr to the knife of one of the Khokur robbers, at Doomyuk encampment.

Shuhab-ood-deen, the king of earth and water— from the beginning no one had been like him!— he fell a martyr on the 3rd of Shuban 602 (A. D. 1205). It occurred at Camp Doomyuk, on the Ghuznee road.

His reign to the time of his death was thirty-two years and some months. He only left one daughter as his heiress. It is said that he had collected vast treasures of gold, silver, and precious stones. Of this there were five hundred maunds of diamonds, the most valuable of all stones— from this may be inferred the quantity of other treasure. He came to Hindoostan nine times: he was beaten twice, the other times he was victorious. He was a just king, fearing God, kind to the people, giving honour to the learned and good, and full of charity.
