Shihab ad-Din Bayazid Shah continued the friendly relation with China like his predecessors and once sent a giraffe to the Chinese emperor with a letter written on a golden leaf. He issued coins from AH 814 to AH 817. The numismatic evidence shows that he was succeeded by his son Ala ad-Din Firuz Shah, who issued coins in AH 817. According to Firishta, Raja Ganesha usurped the throne after the death of Shihab-ud-Din Bayazid Shah, while according to the Riaz-us-Salatin, a late chronicle written in 1788, Raja Ganesha killed Shihabuddin Bayazid Shah and usurped the throne.
