I, Muhammed, the son of Mahmud from Rey, a humble servant of Allah, who pleads His mercy, adjudged as required by the religion, in accordance with the conditions set by the endower, in order for this waqf to be founded. I render witness the trustworthy persons within this assembly. This endowment was indited on July 23rd, 1253.
Praise be to Allah for raising the scholar to an esteemed rank, for destroying the roots of ignorance with wisdom, for illuminating the heart of those who master wisdom, and for granting success to him, and for enhancing the dignity of the scholar in the eyes of His servants.
I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and that prophet Muhammed is His servant and messenger. Many praises and regards be to prophet Muhammed (peace be upon him), and his companions as long as trees bloom their flowers and gardens yield crops. May the honorable caliph of Abbasîs, Mu'tasım Billah's holy rank be blessed.
May Allah exalt the word of Ebu’l Feth Keykâvus, the son of Sultan Gıyaseddîn Keyhüsrev and the grandson of Alâaddin Keykûbat; master of all honorable sultans, the sultan of Allah's earth, the guardian of cities, protector of earthly wealth, the shining star of the caliphate heavens, a fountain of justice and compassion, a safe haven for jinns and humans, Allah's servant in the east and the west, the protector of Islam and muslims, the crown of the Seljuk dynasty, sultan of the land and both seas, the commander of the faithful; may Allah eternalize his sovereignty, may his orders be obeyed over the horizons.
May Allah help his soldiers with His angels, and may his children fulfill his wishes, may his spears enter deep into the enemy's heart, may his sword strike the enemy's neck, may he succeed in aiming the enemy deep in heart with his arrows; may He destroy the desire to wage war in our enemies' hearts as the doves perch and as the rains fall.
The world is a vain place for play and trivia. Its palaces are doomed to collapse. Those who reside in this world are bound to pass away; their days are bound to slip by. People are guests like summer clouds. Life on earth is a short journey; a temporary delusion.
The grand Atabey, master of grace and wisdom, the worshipper, the mujahid and law maker, a learned scholar of Islamic sciences, the most merciful in serving the public, and dependant only on Allah, Karatay, the son of Abdullah obeyed Allah's verse; "Whatever you have will end, but what Allah has is eternal." (Nahl, 96), and prophet Muhammed's saying, "There is nothing for you on earth other than the food you consume, the clothes you wear off, and the possesions you eternalize by donating. Karatay, the son of Abdullah, had a high-rise, spacious, and fine building constructed and endowed as waqf in the capital city Konya for the sake of Allah, and to be saved from his afflictions on "the day when everyone flees from their own siblings, parents, spouses and children" and in order to be one of those servants that Allah will elevate to the gardens of paradise, by virtue of donating from his own wealth.
Until the day of judgement, when the most auspicious of all heirs, Allah becomes the sole owner of the earth and all in it; so be it that this waqf’s property will not be sold, bought, or deemed as charity, will not be passed to others nor will it be owned as assets by anyone; the property will not be altered from its original self. Upon hearing and being cognizant of these conditions, if anyone attempts to change this endowment in any way, may the burden of his sin be on his shoulders.
