Sarban had approached his brother Sheikh Batt for supplication of a son. Bait offered his youngest son, Kajin. However, Kajin ran away from Sarban back to Bait. Sarban approached again. Bait wanted to hand Kajin back, but Kajin, being young, clung to his mother and cried. Upon which, Bait handed over his eldest son Ismail to Sarban.
Makhzan-e Afghani relates the origin of the name Lodhi as such:
One year, snow and rain fell so abundantly on the hill where Sheikh Baitani resided, that Sheikh Bait Nikka migrated to another place with his entire tribe. When the rain and snow season was over, the tribe migrated back after 4 months. At their home, Shah Hussain said to his wife Mato, "Pronounce the Bismillah, and fetch fire from the hearth!" The lady exclaimed "In the name of God", stretched forth her hand to the fire-place, and found live coals. Sheikh Baitani, upon that said to her daughter, "The children after such a journey are hungry: Bring me baked bread for today I want to distribute it myself, in order to ascertain which of the sons is the most favoured by fortune." When the first loaf was baked, Ibrahim, the son of Bibi Mato, a clever and active youth, brought it to the his grand-father, who then exclaimed, "Ibrahim Loye Day", which signifies, "Ibrahim is the elder". Loye Day in Pashto signifies the elder.
