A rupee of Shah Jahan minted at Kashmir. Please confirm attribution and help with further reading of the coin.

The Right image (obverse) has the Illahi creed with the mint name below and the left image seems to have the name of the Emperor Sahib Qiran / Shihab al din  / Shah Jahan / Badshah Gazi.

Trying to read the legend. Please correct if I am wrong (which is a big possibility).

The coin is correctly attributed. The date might be 1044/Ry.7, The Ilahi month is Bahman, the 11th month of the zodiac is Aquarius. See for a similar type Zeno #101774

Dear Oesho,

In spite of your pointing out the possible date, I still find it. Can you please help? Please also help with the KM reference.
