Abdur Rahim Khankhana (or simply known as Rahim to his admirers) was one of the Nav Ratnas (Nine Jewels) in Akbar's court. He was known for his philanthropy. Once Goswami Tulsidas, renowned poet and the composer of the great Indian Epic ‘Ramcharit Manas' sent him the followingcouplet through a courier in praise of his generous nature:
Where did you learn to be so philanthropic, Sire, tell me please.
That your eyes look down while raising your hand to give charities.
Rahim who was also a well known poet, presented the messenger with several gifts and dedicated a couplet to Goswami Tulsidas as under:
It's the God who showers me with boundless wealth day and night.
But the people believe it's me and that's the cause of my plight.
