The Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent ordered Suleiman Pasha as governor of Egypt to conduct a naval expedition in the Indian Ocean, where he led the capture of Aden and the siege of Diu (in Portuguese India) in 1538. Suleiman Pasha was a benefactor of his long-serving successor in the Egyptian governorship, Davud Pasha (served 1538–1549), whom he championed for the role to spite his rival and colleague, Rüstem Pasha.
