When the fire that broke out in Sarajevo in 1831, Gazi Husrev-bey's  Waqf was heavily damaged. Majority of  its useful  buildings were burnt down. The representative of the estate manager of this Waqf, Ahmed Munib effendi Glodjo had almost all burnt buildings of this Waqf, renovated during the period 1832- 1835.

The expenses for the construction of these buildings and the incomes of them as well, he recorded in a special notebook which is together with other materials of his inheritance deposited in Historical Archives in Sarajevo.
