Quitabat was mainly used to ornament the building during the earlier times. It was also done on jewelries like rings, pendants, and armlet. Since it was believed that the art had the power to repel bad vibes therefore it was also engraved on weapons like, swords, daggers, handles etc. Artists also made monograms and seals using Quitabat. To save people (kings, warriors and kids) from bad luck, verses were written on small papers, packed and were worna s ornaments. These were called as taveez.
