and 1891 there were rumours of the appointment of a Turkish Mudli to
Zubarah 18th-century town located 105 km from Doha. , and the post was at first offered to Muhammad-bin- Abdul

were said not to have accepted it, though there was also a contradictory
rumour that it was hoisted on Fridays. In 1873 four Turks visited
'Odaid and arranged that a sum of $40 or 50 should be paid annually by
the settlers through Shaikh Jasim of Dohah, after which they went away,
having been deterred by the inferior character of the water supply from
establishing a post. In 1874 Shaikh Zaid of Abu Dhabi stated that local
Turkish officials had written to him asserting 'Odaid to be under their
protection, and calling on him to abstain from interference there; he was
unable, however, to produce their letters when called upon to do so. In
