Tazkerat Al Awlia is the oldest work of prose in Pashto that we know of. It was written in 612 Hijri (1216 AD) by Suleiman Mako (of Arghasan). Only 7 pages of the book were found by Prof. Abdul Hai Habibi in a mosque in Adam Khel village in Helmand valley in 1933. The remaining pages are lost. The book is a hand-written manuscript and is considered to be the most valuable contribution to the history of Pashto language.
