The King had met Sinbad. When Sindria was just being established, Rashid taught him a lot. Once Sinbad experienced a battle where he hurt his country and its residents, he gave him a sword from the King's family as encouragement to pull himself together when he lost his way.

Even though Alibaba was dubious about it, since his mother was harlot, he insisted, explaining who she was. He then took Alibaba to the palace. Sometime later, he accompanied Alibaba to the practice lessen of economy outside of class, where Alibaba first managed to be successful with trade negotiation alone. Using the profit he earned, Alibaba bought a knife, which would later become his first vessel. Rashid told Alibaba that his country is the trading center and he should depend on himself to comprehend the secrets of trading. He left him with words to continue learning at this pace. Years later, he had become weaker and told Alibaba that he wanted him to become the next king. He died when Kassim and his men had invaded the palace.
