Hi everyone, I am having difficulty identifying this very small silver Indian coin.

While it is similar in size to silver Chuckram coins of Travancore, I am not seeing a match in my Krause or online.
Moreover, the text on the coin appears to be Persian or Urdu rather than Tamil, which would be more likely to be on a coin of Travancore.

Any help with this identification would be appreciated!

To me this looks Habbarid or Amirs of Sind. Here are a few you can look through for a match if you wish.

As always, weight and diameter would help.

Seeker55 - Thanks for the help! Yes, I forgot to mention that it is 8mm and .52g.
Looking at the link you provided, it appears to perfectly match #124190 - Habbarid, Ahmed I, AR Damma.

So, I suppose that my coin is from north-western South Asia rather than southern South Asia.
