He headed the civil administration in the medieval sultanates. The wazir's special domain in the Delhi sultanate was financial or-ganization. When the sultan was weak, the wazir tended to usurp his powers. The position of Khan-i Jahan Maqbul in Firuz Shah Tugh-laq's reign (1351-1388) is an example. Most of the wazirs in the Delhi sultanate were men of culture and taste; even the ill-educated Khan-i Jahan Maqbul was considered very wise and capable.
