Upon reaching the rank of balak or qayadin, a soldier in el Sadimmin was granted a mansion or villa on the syl-pasha's estate. This provided enhanced status for the officer but also meant that the syl-pasha could blackmail him more easily.
The barracks for the soldiers of each sabban was known as a sadidah. A sadidah often had a minaret attached to it and was four stories tall or taller. They tended to be simple and practical structures, holding 40 to 60 troops. Each garrison was controlled by at least four officers and contained armories as well. A sadidah armory was stocked about twice as well as that of a typical amlakkhan.
