In the Preface to the companion volume of the present 
work, which contains the facsimile of a MS. of the Tarikh 
-i-Guzida brought from Persia in the summer of 1907 by 
my friend Mirza '^Abdu '1-Husayn Khan Wahidu 'l-Mulk, I 
announced my intention (p. XVl) of discussing in this volume 
with greater fulness the various questions connected with 
this history and its author. Now, however that this volume, 
which contains an abridged translation of the text, together 
with the Indices necessary for the convenient use of the 
latter, is ready for publication, I find that I am not in a 
position to add anything of importance on these questions 
to what has been already published or referred to in the 
previous volume; and all that now appears necessary is that 
I should briefly explain its structure and production. 

This volume consists of two parts, the English Abstract 
of Contents or Abridged Translation of the text, occupying 
237 pages; and the Persian Indices to the text, which were 
omitted from the previous volume, to which they properly 
belong, in order to avoid increasing its already considerable 
bulk (854 -J- 20 pages). 

The Indices are entirely the work of my friend and col- 
league Dr. R. A. Nicholson, who undertook the laborious 
task of constructing them with his usual kindness, and has 
carried it out with his customary thoroughness. They are 
four in number, viz.-.^ 

(i) Index of persons mentioned in the text, both men and 
women (pp. 5 — 182). 

(2) Index of nisbas (pp. 183 — 224). 


(3) Index of place names and tribal names (pp. 225 — 277). 

(4) Index of books cited or referred to in the text (pp.. 

Dr. Nicholson has been kind enough to write a short note 
explaining the principles which have guided him in the con- 
struction of these Indices, rendered the more difficult by 
the scribe's errors which mar the text reproduced in the 
facsimile, and this note is added at the end of the Preface. 

For the Abridged Translation, or Abstract of Contents, I 
must assume entire responsibility, though I have received 
the most valuable help from my learned friend Mirza 
Muhammad of Qazwi'n, to whom each proof was submitted 
and by him returned with many important corrections, ob- 
servations and annotations, which have been for the most 
part incorporated in the text or in foot-notes. In making 
such an Abstract it is very difficult to avoid being swayed 
by personal predilections and idiosyncrasies, and I am con- 
scious that I may have unduly compressed such portions 
of the work as appeared to me less interesting, and, on the 
other hand, unduly expanded other portions which seemed 
to me of greater interest. The thick numbers in brackets 
occurring throughout the Translation indicate the pages of 
the facsimile contained in the first volume, and it is these 
which must he regarded when the Persian Indices are em- 
ployed in connection with the English Abstract. 

My attention has been called to an unfortunate error in 
the facsimile, occurring between pp. 226 and 231, which, 
owing, probably, to the adhesion of two leaves of the ori- 
ginal MS., has resulted in the complete omission of pp. 227 
and 228, and the insertion twice over of pp. 229 and 230. 
The text of the omitted pages is as follows:

In conclusion, the aim of this volume is to serve as a 
guide for the English student of Oriental history to one of the 
more ancient and reputable historical manuals which are so 
popular in Persia, and if it fulfils in this respect somewhat 
the same function as Major David Price's old but still useful 
Retrospect, I shall be well satisfied.

It may be helpful to those using the Indices if I state the 
method of arrangement which I have adopted. Since no 
difficulties are likely to arise in connection with the names 
of places, tribes, or books, my remarks on this point will 
refer almost exclusively to the First Index, which contains 
the names of persons. 

(i) The definite article , \\ and the words .,\ '".\ .,,\ ^v^-, 

^ are ignored. Thus, aIW. jij'^\ is placed under c. , and 
Jcli; y\ under . . 

(2) Names consisting of a proper noun followed by a nisda 
^- S-> (S'y^ jViac , are placed under the initial letter of 
the noun. 

(3) Names consisting of a kunya followed by a nisba e.g., 
ijjyj:i "U^-.?- y\ , are usually placed under the initial 
letter of the secund word in the kwiya. 

(4) Names consisting of a kunya followed by a proper 
noun, e. g., ^ ^ j,*-\ AW ^.s- y\ , are usually placed 
under the initial letter of the noun, whether a nisba 
follows or not; but sometimes they are placed under 
the ktinya, for special reasons : thus V, ^ a».< SC^ ^ \ 
J, V^'^ will be found under »_j , because he is commonly 

known as J,V6 jC J\. Many names of this kind occur 
in the Index twice, viz., under the kunya and also 
under the proper noun. 


As a rule, the names are printed in the Indices just as 
they stand in the facsimile. A large number of them are 
corrupt, and many are written so defectively that it was 
not easy — in some instances I found it impossible — to 
decipher them. Some obvious mistakes have been corrected 
and the true reading has frequently been determined by 
reference to Ibn Hisham, Tabarf, Ibn al-Athir and other au- 
thorities, but no ^attempt has been made to control and 
verify the names systematically. This must be left for the 
first Editor of the Tarikh-i-Guzida, and I do not envy 
him the task.

Praise of God (l — 2) and of the Prophet and his family (3). 
The Author, Hamdu'llah Ahmad b. Abi Bakr b. Nasr, the 
Mustawfi (State accountant) of Qazwin, describes how he 
imbibed a taste for historical studies from the late minister 
Rashidu'd-EWn Fadlu'llah, in whose service he had been, and 
who was constantly surrounded by men of learning (3 — 4), 
until at length, notwithstanding his lack of early training in 
literature and historical science, he began to compose a great 
historical poem [the Zafar-ndma, a supplement to the Shdh- 
ndma of Firdawsi] '), giving an account of the history of the 
world from the advent of the Prophet Muhammad down to 
his own times. Of this poem, designed to contain 75,000 
verses, he had already composed more than 50,000 verses 
(4 — 5), and it was his intention to dedicate it, when com- 
pleted, to Ghiyathu'd-Di'n Muhammad, the worthy son and 
successor of his late patron the deceased minister Rashi'du'd- 
Din Fadlu'llah (5 — 6). Having recited the titles and praised 
the virtues of his patron, and apologized for the unworthi- 
ness of his offering (7), he proceeds to enumerate the prin- 
cipal sources of information used for the compilation of this 
present manual of history, which are as follows (8) : 

(i) The SiratiCn-Nabi [Ibn Hisham's Biography of the 
Prophet is presumably intended]. 

(2) The Qisasii l-Anbiy d. [Ath-Tha'^alibi's work is probably 

(3) Ar-Risdlatu' l-Qushayriyya. 

(4) The Tadhkiratiil-Awliyd [? of Faridu'd-Din *^Attar].

Supplement^ pp. 172 — 4.

This compendium is entitled TaWikh-i-Guzida ("the Select 
History"), and was completed in the year A. H. 730 (8). The 
preface concludes with a prayer that it may be honoured 
by the perusal of Ghiyathu'd-Din, and that the faults of omis- 
sion and commission which mar its pages may be overlooked. 


Of the different eras used by historians, e.g. (i) from the 
Fall of Adam ; (2) from *the Deluge ; (3) from the casting of 
Abraham into the fire; (4) from the Call of Moses; (5) from 
the destruction of Pharaoh; (6) from the building of the 
Ka'^ba; (7) from the accession of Alexander the Great; (8) 
from the invasion of Yaman by the Abyssinians; (9) from 
the reign of Nebuchadnezzar; (10) from the "Year of the 
Elephant", etc. Of these eras, the Israelites employed Nos. 
4 and 5 ; the Ishmaelites (or Arabs) No. &\ the Greeks and 
Romans No, 7; the Yamanites No. 8; the Copts No. 9, and 
the Arabs of Quraysh No, 10. From this diversity of eras 
arose much confusion (10), which the Prophets have not 
endeavoured to remove, while the philosophers either deny 
that the world had a beginning, or, as in the case of the 
sages of India, Cathay, Chinese Tartary, China and Europe, 
assign to the first man a remote antiquity, or assert the 
existence of several successive "Adams". The Muhammadans 
of Persia reckon 6000 years, more or less, from x^dam to

God, by the word Kun ("Be!") created the two worlds, 
the unseen "World of Command" l^dlam-i-amr), and the 
visible "World of Creation" ^dlam-i-khalq). The Universal 
Reason, the World-Soul, Matter, the Four Elements, the 
Nine Spheres, the Stars, the Seven Planets, the Twelve Signs 
of the Zodiac. — (17) Revolution of the Spheres. — Cause 
of night and day and of the seasons. — The "Seven Sires", 
"the Four Mothers", and the "Threefold Offspring". — Origin

number of sections is only 7. 


of the sea, storms and mountains. — Appearance of minerals, 
vegetables and animals. — Creation of Man. 


According to a tradition reported by Abu Dharr al-Ghif- 
farf there were 124,000 Prophets (100,000 in this MS.), of 
whom 3 1 3 were Miirsal '). Of these 4 were Syrians, viz. 
Adam, Seth, Enoch (who is Idris, the first who wrote) and 
Noah; while 4 were Arabs, viz. Hud (19), Salih, Shu*^ayb 
(/. e. Jethro) and Muhammad. Of the Hebrew Prophets the 
first was Moses and the last Jesus. The Revelations made to 
these Prophets comprised 100 tablets [Sakifa) and 4 books, 
viz. 50 tablets to Seth, 30 to Enoch, 10 to Abraham [and 
10 to Moses before the Pentateuch ^)], and the Pentateuch, the 
Gospel, the Psalms and the Qur'an. — Six of the greatest 
of the Prophets held the rank of Ulul-'^azm, viz. Adam, 
Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus and Muhammad. — The Author 
has only succeeded in finding mention of 73 Major Prophets 
{Mtirsal) and 45 Minor Prophets. — The former number, 
he considers, accords well with the allegorical sense of these 
two traditions: — "The doctors of my Church are as the 
Prophets of the Children of Israel", and. "My Church shall 
become divided in to 73 sects, whereof one, that which I 
and my Companions follow, shall be saved." — Definition 
of the terms nabi (20), imirsal, and iiliil-^azm.

Adam, called Abu'l-Bashar and SafiyyuHldh. 

The part played by Gabriel, Michael and "^Azra'il (22) in 
the creation of Adam from clay. — After 40 days, God 
breathes into him His Spirit, and teaches him the Names 
of all things. — He is worshipped by the Angels, except 
Iblis. — The creation of Eve. — Adam and Eve are for- 
bidden to eat wheat; or wheat, grapes and figs. — Iblis 
enters Paradise by the help of the Serpent, and persuades 
Adam and Eve to eat the forbidden fruit. — They are 
expelled from Paradise. — Adam is banished to Sarandib 
(Ceylon) and Eve to Jeddah. — (23) After 100 years, on 
the day of ^Ashiird Adam's repentance is accepted. — Other 
important events which happened on this day (Muharram 
10). — Adam and Eve meet again at Mecca, at "^Arafat, 


and return to Ceylon. — Cause of the enmity between Cain 
{Qdbil) and Abel [Hdbil). — Cain's sacrifice is rejected, and 
he murders Abel (24) and buries his body. — Ibli's persuades 
Cain to worship Fire. — Birth of Seth. — Adam dies at 
the age of 1000 years, and Eve dies a year (or three days) 
later. — They were buried by Seth near Mecca in the mountain 
of Bu Qubays, but dis-interred and re-interred by Noah. — 
Adam had 21 sons and 22 daughters. 


Seth succeeded Adam, received revelations from God, and 
denounced the Fire-worship practised by the children of 
Cain. — He built the Ka'^ba, died at the age of 912 years, 
and was succeeded by his son Enos [Anush), who lived 
965 years and first cultivated the date. He was succeeded 
by his son Cainan, who lived 920 years, and began to build 
Babel. He was succeeded by his son Mahalaleel [Mahalail), 
who (25) lived 895 years, and was succeeded by his son 
Jared, who lived 962 years. All these were born during 
Adam's life-time. 

Idris, soti of Jared, called Enoch [Akhnukh). 

Enoch, or Idris, was at once King, prophet and sage, was 
versed in Astronomy, and invented writing, spinning, weaving 
and sewing. He built the Pyramids and foretold the Deluge. 
— His friendship with the Angel of Death, and the device 
whereby he entered Paradise when he had lived 865 years. 

Noah, called Najiyyulldh. 

Noah, the great-grandson of Idris, received revelations 
from God, and preached to his people for 950 years (26), 
during which period 80 believed. — He makes the Ark, 
which is described. — The Flood begins in an oven at Kufa, 
submerges the "habitable quarter" of the earth and all the 
mountains, and continues for six. months. — The Ark rests 


on Mount Judf near Mawsil, and Noah and his companions 
leave it on Muharram lo (the ^Ashw'd). — They build a 
village there called [Siiq] Thamdnin, "the [Market of the] 
Eighty" '). — Noah died at the age of 1600 years, or 1300 
years. — Since most of the inhabitants of the earth are 
descended from Noah, he is sometimes entitled "the second 
Adam". He had four sons, Shem, Ham and Japhet, who 
believed and ware saved in the Ark, and Canaan (27), who 
disbelieved and was drowned. 

Shem is held by some to have been a prophet, and most 
of the prophets and all the Persians are descended from 
him. He had six sons, of whom the eldest was Arfakhshad, 
from whon Qahtan and Faligh were descended in the fourth 
generation. The latter was the ancestor of the Persians, 
while most of the Arabs are descended from the former, 
whose son, YaVub, first spoke Arabic. From Qahtan sprang 
the Himyarites, the Lakhmites, and Saba (Sheba), who wds 
the father of Quda'^a, Ash^ari, Azd and Tayyi'. Shem's second 
son, "^Alim, begot Khurasan and Haytal. The former begot 
'^Iraq, and the latter Kirman and Mukran. Shem's third son 
was Aswad, who begot Ahwaz and Pahlu, of whom the 
latter begot Pars. Shem's fourth son was Nudhar, who begot 
Adharbad and Arran, Arman and Mughan. Shem's fifth son 
was Iram, from whom were descended the tribes of "^Ad 
and Thamud. Shem's sixth son was Yafan, who begot Sam 
and Rum. 

Ham is the ancestor of all the blacks. The story of Noah's 
drunkenness and Ham's irreverence (28), and how it was 
punished. Ham had also six sons, Zangi, Kus, Hind, Barbar, 
Qibt, Habash. The last was the father of Nuba. 

Japhet had eight sons, Turk, Khazar, Saqlab, Rus, Bishak, 
Mughul, Gog and Magog. Chin and Machin are the sons of 

l) Tabari, i, 197. 


Khutan, and the Bulghars, Birtasis and Bashghirdis are also 
his descendants, as well as the Greeks, Franks and some 
of the Romans.' After the death of Noah, all these dwelt 
together in Babel for many years, until one night their 
common language was taken from them and each awoke 
speaking a different tongue, whereupon they separated, and 
the land where each settled became known by his name. 


Hiid, the fifth great prophet, is variously accounted a son 
of 'Abir or "Ad, to which latter tribe he was sent. He 
preached to them with little success for fifty years. He then 
cursed them, and God withheld rain from them for three 
years. They sent the sage Luqman to Mecca to ask for rain 
(29). — A black, a red and a white cloud appear, and the 
men of 'Ad are told to choose. They choose the black cloud, 
and are all destroyed by a violent tempest, in the month 
of Shawwal, during the bardiil-^ajuz, or "Old Woman's Cold". 
Hud survived this event for fifty years, died at the age of 
150 years, and is buried at Hadramawt. 


Salih was sent to the tribe of Thamud. His miracle con- 
sists in bringing a female camel and its young one out of 
the rock. Thamud refuse to believe and kill the camel. God 
causes their faces to turn yellow and then black, and finally 
destroys them by a loud noise from heaven. Salih lived to 
be 258 (or 180) years of age. He was buried at Mecca. 


Handhala b. Safwan was descended from Fihr b. Qahtan, 
and was sent to the Ahlur-Rass, or people of Rass, who 
was a king of the people of Nimrod (30) in the West. This 
king had apostasised, and claimed to be God, and his people 


practised various unnatural crimes, of some of which the 
perpetrators are still called Rass and Sd^tari. God finally 
destroyed them all by thirst, and by the arrows which they 
would have shot at Handhala. 

Abraham, called Khalilulldh (31). 

Genealogy of Abraham, His father Azar was Nimrod's 
wazir. The astrologers foretell the birth in Nimrod's time 
of a prophet who will cause his destruction, and Nimrod 
consequently orders a massacre of all male children born at 
that period. Abraham was hidden by his mother in the 
place now called Birs [Nimrud] near Kufa, which the author 
visited. At the age of seven he emerged from the cave 
where he was hidden, and, after worshipping the heavenly 
bodies, he is guided to the worship of God. He preaches to 
Nimrod and denounces idol-worship. At the suggestion of 
Iblis, Nimrod casts Abraham by means of a great catapult 
into the fire. He refuses help from the angel Gabriel, and 
the fire is turned into a rose-garden, whence he emerged safe 
and sound, being at that time 60 years of age. Nimrod, 
desiring to make war on God, constructs an aeriel car drawn 
by vultures, and from it (32) discharges an arrow towards 
heaven, which returns to him stained with blood. Nimrod 
(whom some identify with the Persian Ka'us) increases in 
arrogance and claims to be God. Abraham with his wife 
Sara (who is also his cousin, and the most beautiful of 
women) and his family and retainers retires from Babel to 
Egypt. The king of Egypt, Sinan b. "^Ulwan desires Sara 
for himself, and takes her from Abraham, but is divinely 
prevented from touching her. He restores her to Abraham, 
and presents Hagar to her. They retire from Egypt to 
Palestine. A bag of sand miraculously turned to flour. 
(33) Why Abraham is entitled Khalihi lldh ("the Friend of 
God"). Nimrod, renewing his rebellion against God, is des- 


troyed by a gnat which enters his brain. Sara gives Hagar 
to Abraham, and she bears him a son, Ishmael, Abraham 
being then 86 years old. — Circumcision is instituted. Sara's 
jealousy drives out Hagar and Ishmael to Mecca. The spring 
of Zamzam appears. Ishmael is brought up by the Banii 
Jurhum. Abraham prepares to offer up Ishmael. A ram is 
accepted as his substitute {34). A year later Isaac is born 
to Abraham by Sara, she being then seventy years old. — 
Ishmael divorces his Jurhumite wife to please Abraham. At 
God's command they repair the Ka'^ba, set up the Black 
Stone and institute the Pilgrimage to Mecca. Sara dies at 
the age of 130 years. Abraham marries again and survives 
Sara fifty years. He dies at the age of 200 and is buried 
at Hebron in Syria, at the place now called Khalilu'llah. 
Ten tablets {sahifa) were revealed to him. Various practices, 
chiefly in respect to personal cleanliness, which he instituted. 

Lot (35). 

The seven Cities of the Plain, San*^a, Saw'^a, ''Amra (= Go- 
morrah), Rijya and Sodom, said to have been situated between 
Kirman and Sfstan '). — Wickedness of their inhabitants. — 
The three angels, Gabriel, Michael and Israfil, entertained 
by Lot. Destruction of the Cities of the Plain and flight of 
Lot and his family, except his wife (36), who is destroyed 
by a stone from heaven. Lot survived her 7 years and died 
on a Wednesday in the month of Rabf I. 


Ishmael was sent as a prophet to the Amalekites of Yaman 
and Hadramawt, to whom he preached the religion of Abra- 
ham for fifty years. He died at the age of 130 and was 
buried at Mecca beside his mother Hagar. 

l) This idea probably arose from the fact that the desert east of KirmAn 
is called Dasht-i-Lut^ and that this was misinterpreted as "the Plain of Lot". 



Isaac was sent to the people of Syria. The story of Esau 
and Jacob and of Isaac's blessing, by virtue of which all the 
sqcceeding prophets except four, viz. Khidr, Job, Shu'^ayb 
[-=: Jethro) and Muhammad, were of the posterity of Isaac. 
Isaac died at the age of 180, and was buried beside Abra- 
ham in the year wherein Joseph became ruler ^aziz) of Egypt. 

Jacob (37). 

Jacob, fearing the wrath of his brother Esau, fled by night 
into Canaan; wherefore he was called Israel. He marries 
his cousin. Of his two wives the elder bore him six sons, 
Judah, Levi, Reuben, Simeon, Issachar and Zebulon; the 
younger two, Joseph and Benjamin; and each of his two 
concubines two, the one Dan and Naphtali, the other Gad 
and Asher. Joseph was born when Jacob was 89 years old, 
was lost to him when he was 90 years old, was separated 
from him for 40 years, and recovered by him when he was 
130 yea^s old. Jacob died in Egypt at the age of 147 and 
was buried at Khalilu'llah. 


Joseph's incomparable beauty. His vanity and its punish- 
ment. His dream. He is cast into the pit by his brethren 
and sold to a trader for 20 dirhams. His brethren tell Jacob 
that a wolf has destroyed Joseph (38). Joseph is sold for five 
times his weight of musk, which in Egypt exceeds gold in value, 
to the '^Aziz-i-Misr, who was treasurer to the King of Egypt. 
Zalikha falls in love with Joseph, she being then 15 years 
old and he 17. His chastity, and her calumny. The Egyptian 
ladies, amazed at Joseph's beauty, cut their hands instead 
of the oranges which they hold. — Joseph's imprisonment. 
The king's chief butler [shardb-ddr] and chief baker [khwdn- 


sdldr) are cast into prison. Joseph interprets their dreams 
(39). The king Rayan's dream of the fat and the lean kine. 
Joseph interprets it, and, on the death of his former master, 
is made treasurer and placed in control of all the granaries. 
He being then 32 years of age, asks for Zalikha in marriage. 
She bears him two sons, Ephraim and Manasseh. Joseph's 
brethren come to buy corn in Egypt. He bids them bring 
Benjamin {40). Their second journey to Egypt with Ben- 
jamin. Joseph detains Benjamin. Jacob's bitter grief. He be- 
comes blind from his much weeping. Third journey of Jo- 
seph's brethren to Egypt. He reveals himself to them, and 
sends his shirt by them to Jacob, who rubs it on his eyes 
and recovers his sight. Jacob returns with his sons to Egypt, 
where he dies seventeen years later. Joseph survives him 
23 years, and then dies aged 97. His body is placed in a 
glass coffin which is sunk in the Nile, but is afterwards 
recovered by Moses and buried at Khalilu'Ilah (41). Discus- 
sion of the question whether Joseph^s brethren were prophets. 

Khidr. ♦ 

His name was Balya b, Malkan b. Faligh etc. He was born 
before the time of Abraham, was a contemporary of Dhu'l- 
Qarnayn the greater, and accompanied him in his search 
for the Water of Life, which he drunk and so became im- 
mortal. Allegorical explanation of this legend. 


Job. was the great-great grandson of Esau. The misfortunes 
and trials wherewith God proves him (42). His exemplary 
patience, and its reward. His death at the age of 200. 

Shu^ayb (Jethro). 

His mission to the people of al-Arfka (? Jericho), most of 
whom, on account of their unbelief, were destroyed by fire 
from a cloud. 


Moses, called Kalimu'lldh, 

He was born in Egypt in the reign of Walid b. Mus'^ab. 
b. Rayyan, (the grandson of Joseph's Pharaoh) who greatly 
oppressed the Israelites (43) and killed their male children 
on account of a prediction of his astrologers. The child 
Moses, consigned to the Nile, is found by one of the hand- 
maidens of Asiya, Pharaoh's wife, and adopted by her. His 
own mother is engaged to nurse him. When two years old 
he one day plucked Pharaoh by the beard. Pharaoh wished 
to kill him, but was dissuaded by Asiya, who, to show the 
child's lack of discrimination, place^ before him two bowls, 
one filled with fire and one with rubies. Moses picked up a 
burning coal and put it in his mouth, and, in consequence 
of the burn which it inflicted, he was ever afterwards unable 
to speak clearly. At the age of 20 he was given a wife, 
who bore him two sons. At the age of 26 he killed the 
Egyptian and fled from Egypt to Shu'^ayb (Jethro), whose 
daughter he married after he has served Jethro as a shepherd 
for two years. She bears him two sons. Moses returns to 
Egypt. The episode of the Burning Bush on Mount Sinai (44). 
The miracles of the "White Hand" and the Rod which 
turned into a serpent are vouchsafed to Moses, and he is 
sent to Egypt accompanied by his brother Aaron to act as 
his spokesman. Pharaoh is obdurate and brings his magicians 
to contend against Moses, but they are convinced by his 
miracles and believe in him, whereupon they are put to death 
by Pharaoh. The seven plagues wherewith God afflicts the 
Egyptians, together with the two miracles of the Rod and 
the "White Hand" make up the Nine Signs of Moses (45). 
Flight of Moses with the Israelites from Egypt. They cross 
the Red Sea, which the Egyptians seeking to do are drowned. 
The Tablets of the Law are revealed to Moses on Mount 
Sinai in the presence of 70 witnesses. Colloquy of Moses 


with God. (46) Moses asks, but is not permitted to see God, 
whose effulgence causes Mount Sinai to be shivered in pieces 
(from some of which, it is said, Mount Uhud was produced), 
whereat the 70 witnesses die of fright, but are restored to 
life by Moses' prayer. — The story of Samirf and the Golden 
Calf, which speaks and moves by virtue of a handful of dust 
whereon Gabriel had trod and which Samirf scattered over 
it. Moses kills 70,000 of the Calfs worshippers. He desires 
to burn the Calf and does so by virtue of an Alchemy 
which God teaches him, in despite of his cousin Qarun (Corah). 
Qarun learns the secret of this Alchemy from Moses, and 
so becomes wealthy, and rebels against Moses. God causes 
the earth to open and swallow him up together with his 
wealth (47). A rich Israelite is murdered by his nephews 
and his body thrown between two villages, the inhabitants 
of which are suspected. Moses bids them kill a cow and 
strike the mundered man with one of its limbs, whereupon 
he comes to life again and identifies his murderers. The 
story of Moses and Khidr (48). Khidr explains the reasons 
of the three actions which excited th§ wonder and dis- 
approval of Moses. Moses Is sent against Og the son of Anak 
(^Uj or "C/q b. "Unuq)^ (49) and kills him in single combat, 
by the help of the hoopoe. Balaam, the nephew of Shu'^ayb 
(Jethro) prays against the Israelites, who lose their way and 
wander in the wilderness for forty years. The Quails and 
Manna. Death of Moses and Aaron. They are succeeded by 
Gideon and Jephthah (who die in the wilderness), and these 
in turn by Joshua. 

Joshua the son of Niin (50). 

Joshua was the nephew and executor of Moses, and led 
the children of Israel against the giants of Syria, took their 
land, and killed Balaam, who at the Resurrection will appear 
in the form of the dog which accompanied the Seven Sleepers. 


He died at the age of 127 years. He was succeeded by 
Caleb, who brought the IsraeHtes back to Egypt and there 
died. Next came Ezechiel the Levite, who cursed his people 
for their unbelief and they died of a pestilence, but were 
again restored to life by his prayer. It is said that a putrid 
odour still clings to the descendants of these Jews. Some 
historians identify Ezechiel with Dhu'1-Kifl, who will be 
mentioned presently, but others say that the former lived 
before David and the . latter after, which latter statement 
appears to be the more correct. Ezechiel was followed by 
Phineas, who is said to have been identical with him who 
was called Khidr by the Arabs, and who found the Water of 
Life ; but this statement is incorrect, for the Khidr who found 
the Water of Life was not an Israelite, as was this Khidr, who 
was the brother of Elias. 

Elias (51). 

Elias was sent to preach to the worshippers of Baal, 
whom, on account of their unbelief, he afflicted, with drought 
and famine. Disgusted by their unbelief, he finally withdrew 
into seclusion, appointing as his successor — 

Elisha the Ephraimite. 

He was, for some generations, the last of the Hebrew 
Prophets. — The Jews disregard their doctors {^ulama). — 
The Ark of the Covenant is captured by Goliath. 


Samuel is, after an interval, sent as a Prophet (52) to the 
Israelites, who, guided by him, recover the Ark. — They 
demand a King, and are given Saul [Tdlut). — Goliath 
killed by David. — Death of Samuel, aged 52. 

David was the eleventh in descent from Jacob. Saul, jealous 


of his influence, tries to kill him (53). Saul and his sons are 
killed by the Philistines. The Psalms {Zubur) are revealed 
to David. — His marvellous sweetness of voice. — His sin 
with the wife of Uriah, by whom Solomon is born to him. 

— His repentance and forgiveness. — Uriah is restored to 
life to assure David of his forgiveness. The Jews, forbidden 
to fish on the Sabbath, put down their nets on the Sabbath 
and draw them in on Sunday. David reproves them, but 
they pay no heed, and as a punishment are metamorphosed 
into pigs. — David chooses Solomon as his successor and 
builds the Temple at Jerusalem. He dies at the age of one 
hundred, having reigned forty years. 

Solomon (54). 

Solomon alone of all mankind was both king and prophet.. 

— His ring, inherited from Adam, on which was engraved 
the Most Great Name of God. — His authority over all 
living creatures. — His throne, and how the wind obeys 
him and carries him whither he will. — His wise minister, 
Asaf b. Barkhiya. — His adventures with Bilqi's, Queen of 
Sheba (55), whom he marries, and who bears him Rehoboam. 

— Solomon's shape assumed and sway usurped by one of 
the yinn. — His death at the age of fifty-five. — How his 
death was concealed from the yinn for a year. — Mention 
of three or four more obscure prophets (55 — 56). 


The Assyrians (or "Babylonians") attack Jerusalem, but 
death overtakes their whole army at the prayer of Isaiah. 

— Isaiah waS the first prophet who foretold the advent of 
Christ and Muhammad. — He is murdered. — Luhrasp, 
king of Persia, sends Ruham the son of Giidarz (who was 
called Nebuchadnezzor in Syria) to avenge his death, lay 
waste Jerusalem, and bring the Israehtes into captivity. 


Jeremiah (57). 

Some historians identify Jeremiah with Ezra, asserting that 
the latter was his Arabic and the former his Hebrew name. 
On the death of Isaiah he fled to Egypt, but was brought 
back by Nebuchadnezzor to Jerusalem. Ezra's faith that God 
would once again make the Holy Land flourish. — His 
soul is taken from his body while he sleeps, and restored 
a hundred years later, when Daniel had come, and the 
country was once more prosperous. — He convinces the 
Jews that he lived a century earlier by reciting the Tawrdt 
(Pentateuch) by heart, and showing thepi where a copy of 
the same made by Isaiah was hidden under a pillar of the 
temple. Some of the Jews (58) called him the Son of God, 
and so became infidels. — Bahman the son of Isfandiyar, 
being vexed with the inhabitants of Jerusalem, sent Nebu- 
chadnezzor to destroy it again and massacre or take captive 
the Israelites^ who were thus greatly reduced and humbled. 


After the death of Bahman, Daniel restored Jerusalem, 
and brought back the Israelites thither. God gave him as 
his sign a knowledge of the Science of Geomancy. He guided 
the Israelites for a time, and then retired into Khuzistan 
in Persia, and there died. His tomb was discovered there 
by Abu Musa al-Ash'^ari when the Arabs conquered Persia 
[in the seventh century of the Christian era.]. 

Jonah. ' ; 

Jonah was sent to preach to the people of Nineveh. — 
Their unbelief. — Their punishment and repentance. — 
Jonah and the whale (59)- — He remains forty days in the 
whale's belly. — His deliverance. — His gourd and the 
gazelle, — He dies and is buried at Kufa. — Three more 


minor prophets contemporary with Jonah. — Three more, 
Sadiq, Sadiiq and Salum, sent to the people of Antioch, of 
whom, on account of their unbelief, all the adults are des- 
troyed by a noise from heaven. — Some say that these three 
prophets lived in the interval between Christ and Muhammad, 
and that their story is connected with the villagers [ashdb-i- 
qarya) mentioned in the Qur'an (6o). Five more minor pro- 
phets, including Nahum and Habakkuk. 


Some say that he was descended from Job and was an 
Arab; others that, he was an Israelite. He was sent to a 
King of Syria named Canaan [Kan^dn). His tomb is near 
Kufa, and was a place of pilgrimage of the Jews, until 
Uljaytii (Shah Khuda-banda, the Mongol) took it from them 
and gave it to the Muslims, who built a Mosque on the 
spot. — Haggai and another minor prophet. 


Zechariah was of the posterity of Solomon, and was cousin 
to 'Imrdn thfe father of Mary, and their wives were sisters. 
Birth of Mary. — A Son is promised to Zechariah (6l)* — 
His unbelief. — He is tongue-tied for three days. — John 
the Baptist is born nine months later. — The Angel Gabriel 
appears to Mary when she is eighteen years old in the form 
of Joseph the Carpenter, on the 25th of the month of Adhar 
(March), and foretells the birth of Jesus. — The miraculous 
conception of Jesus, who is born nine months later. — Jesus 
speaks in his cradle to vindicate his mother against the 
calumnies of the Jews, declare his own mission, and announce 
the advent of Muhammad "the Seal of the Prophets". — 
Mary flees into Syria with the child Jesus. — Calumnies 
uttered by the Israelites against Zechariah. — The king of 
Jerusalem tries to kill him. — He flees towards Damascus, 


but, being overtaken by his pursuers, takes refuge within a 
hollow tree. — Iblis tells his pursuers where he is, and they 
saw the tree in two, together with Zechariah. 

John the Baptist, 

His mission. — He believes in Jesus. — He is put to 
death by the king of Jerusalem [Herod] for the sake of 
[Herodias] his niece, whom John had forbidden him to marry 
(62). The blood of John the Baptist will not dry up or rest, 
and the doctors of the law declare that it will not do so 
until the blood of his murderers is poured upon it. Giidarz 
the Parthian (Ashghani) hears this, marches on Jerusalem, 
and kills 70,000 Jews, but the blood will not rest until finally 
the blood of the murderers is poured over it. 

Jesus Christ. 

The genealogy of Jesus up to Adam. He was born on 
Wednesday, the 25th of Kanun-i-Awwal (December) in the 
year 233 of Alexander, at Nasiratu'l-Khalil (Nazareth) near 
Jerusalem, on which account his followers are called Nazarenes 
[Nasrdni, plural, Nasdra). He alone of all the prophets was 
born with the gift of prophecy, for others have only become 
prophets after the age of forty. When he was thirty years 
of age he came back (63) from Damascus to Jerusalem, 
where the Gospel [Injil) was revealed to him, and he began 
to summon men to God. The Jews required a miracle, where- 
upon he made a bat out of clay, breathed on it, and it flew. 
He also healed blind and leprous persons whom the physi- 
cians had been unable to benefit, and restored toTife Shem 
the son of Noah as a witne^ to them. As the Jews still 
remained obdurate, after two years' preaching Jesus departed 
into Egypt. On his way thither he preached to a company 
of washermen, twelve of whom believed and became the 
twelve disciples. — Their names. — They accompany Jesus 


Christ to Andalusia {sic), where there is a famine. Jesus 
prays, and food is sent down for them from heaven — roast 
fish, roast lamb and cress — for three consecutive days. 
Some unbelievers ascribed this miracle to magic, and were 
turned into swine. Jesus again returned to Jerusalem. The 
Jews seek to kill him. He flees, and the Jews seize Simon 
[PeterJ, who refuses to betray his Master. They then seize 
Judas, who for 30 dirhams shows them where Jesus is. The 
Jews wish to take him, but God conceals him from their 
eyes, and transforms into his likeness Yishu', the chief priest 
of the Jews, whom they crucify (64) in his stead, while 
Jesus ascends into heaven, he being then thirty-two years 
of age. Yishu' remained on the Cross for seven days and 
nights, and Mary used to go every night and weep at the 
foot of the Cross, until, on the seventh night, God sent 
down Jesus from heaven to comfort her. John the Baptist 
and seven of the Disciples also saw Jesus, and spent that 
night with him, and he gave them many wise counsels, some 
of which are here given. — The Jews conquered by the 
Romans. — The Disciples disperse, two going to Rome, 
one to Qayruwan, one to Ifriqiyya (Tunis), one to the Franks, 
one to the Hijaz, and one to Jerusalem (65)- Rapid diffusion 
of Christianity. Reverence for the Cross. — Some regard 
Jesus as God, and some as the Son of God, while others 
regard him and his mother Mary as partners of God, all of 
which beliefs are heresy. Mary died six years after Jesus 
had ascended into heaven. 

Second Discourse. Section i. The minor Prophets. 

Abel *(Habfl). 

He was the first to whom a prophetic commission was 
given. His story has been already given (p. 10 supra; pp. 
23 — 4 o{ facsimile). 


Dhu'l-Qarnayn al-Akbar. 

Some say that it was he who built the Sadd-i-Ydjuj (Great 
Wall) and journeyed round the world, and that he lived 
before Abraham and was contemporary with Khidr, who 
accompanied him in his search for the Water of Life ; but 
others assert that these deeds are to be ascribed to the 
other Dhu'l-Qarnayn, namely Iskandar (Alexander the Great) 
the son of Darab the son of Bahman. Dhu'l-Qarnayn is 
mentioned in the Qur'an, but as a King, not a prophet, 
and that he was a prophet is denied by some historians. 

Abimelech and 

These were Syrian prophets, followers of the religion of 
Abraham, with whom they were contemporary. [There follow 
on this page and on p. 66 names of other prophets, most 
of which cannot be identified]. Amongst them (66) are Sam- 
son; a descendant of Aaron named ^Ali; Aghrirath, son of 
Pushang, said to have been the only prophet who came out 
of Turkistan, who was killed by his brother Afrasiyab; Saul; 
(Qj) Simon \Peter\ who followed Jesus Christ; Jirjis [St. George), 
who, after suffering much persecution, converted the king 
and people of Mawsil (Nineveh); Khdlid b. Sindn, who, in 
the time of Nushirwan, preached Christianity to the Arabs, 
overcame a fire which they worshipped, and brought rain 
when he would. 

Second Discourse. Section 2. Philosophers and Teachers. 
Luqmdn (68). 

Some assert that he was the cousin of Moses, others that 
he was a black slave. Some regard him as a prophet, but

jn the service of Hajjdj b. Yusuf. See al-Qifti"s Ta'rikhu' l-Hukamd^ p. 105 and 
Ibn Abf Usaybi'a, vol. i, pp. 121 — 3, where his aphorisms are mentioned.

Dhu Nuwas Yusuf, the Himyarite king of Yaman, takes captive 
and kills '^Abdu'llah b. Tamir, whose body was discovered 
during the Caliphate of ""Umar (81). Dhu Nuwas burns the Chris- 
tians of Najran in pits of fire. God punishes him by sending 
the Abyssinians to invade Yaman and destroy him and the 
ancient dynasty which he represented. Hasan-i-Sabbah, the 
founder of the Assassins [Maldhida) was of his posterity.

of Dara. Dai'a reigned for 14 years. 


\o. Iskandar [Alexander). 

Iskandar the son of Darab the son of Bahman (lOO) suc- 
ceeded his brother Dara, and conquered the whole world. 
Qaydhafa the queen of Andalusia alone outwits him. He 
goes in quest of the Water of Life with Khidr. Aristotle 
acts as his Wazir, plagiarizes Persian philosophy, . and then 
burns the books and destroys the sciences of the Persians. 
Monuments left by Alexander. He divided Persia before his 
death amongst 90 Muliiktit-Tawaif, or Tribal Kings, and 
thus rendered her powerless. He reigned 14 years in Persia, 
died at Shahrazur, and was buried at Alexandria. The famous 
lovers Wamiq and "^Adhra lived in his time. (lOl) Some of 
his aphorisms. 

Section 3. The Tribal Kings [Muluku^t-Tawd^if). 

These ruled over Persia from the death of Alexander 
until the foundation of the Sasanian dynasty by Ardashir 
Babakan, in all 318 years ^). Learning and science flourished 
in their days, and the Book of Sindibdd and other notable 
books were composed. There were three branches of these 
kings, comprising 21 rulers who were of greater importance 
than the others. 

First Branch, (i) Abtahan. 

Abtahan-i-Rumi held Khurasan, ""Iraq, and part of Fars 
and Kirman from Alexander. After a reign of four years he 
was killed by the founder of the — 

Second Branch, (i) Ashk of Dara. 
He was recognized as suzerain and over-lord by the other 

l) The period was in reality much longer, over 550 years, for Alexander 
died B. C. 330 and the Sasanian dynasty was founded in A. D. 226. The only 
Muhammadan historian who was aware of, and explained the reason of this 
falsification is, so for as I know, Mas'iidi, in his admirable Kitdbu't-Tanbih 
wa'l-Ishrdf (ed. De Goeje, pp. 97 — 9).

This Dynasty included 3 rulers, who reigned for 33 years. 
Their ancestor, Layth, was a coppersmith in Sistan, who 
took to highway robbery, wherein, however, he observed a 
certain chivalry which led to his being employed in a military 
capacity by Dirham b. Nasr b. Rafi"^ b. Layth b. Nasr b. Sayyar. 

(i) Ya'^qub b. Layth. 
His son Ya'^qub revolts against the sons of Dirham, Salih 
and Nasr, (374), and begins to be powerful in A. H, 237. In 
A. H. 253 he was in possession of the whole of Sistan. By a 
stratagem he defeats Tanbal the King of Kabul. Two years later 
he takes Herat, and shortly afterwards Kirman. (375) He sub- 
dues Khurasan and Pars, and is recognized by the Caliph 
al-Mu'^tazz as King. He reigned 2 years and 6 months, and 
amassed much treasure. He attacks ad-Da*^i ila'I-Haqq, and 
conquers Mazandaran. He then marches on Baghdad against 
the Caliph al-Mu'^tamid, but is defeated at Hulwan, and 
retires to Khuzistan, where he dies on Shawwal 14, A.H. 265.

who imprisons him for two years, but on the accession of 
the new Caliph he is killed, or allowed to die of starvation. 

(3) Tdhir b. Muhammad b. '^Amr. 

He succeeded his grandfather "^Amr, reigned .a little more 
than a year, and was then overcome by Isma^il the Samani.

position of a camel-driver. His ambition is stirred by two 
verses of poetry, and he becomes a highwayman. His son 
Asad enters the service of Tahir Dhu'l-Yaminayn in the 
time of al-Ma'mun. His sons become governors, Nuh of 
Samarqand, Ahmad of Farghana, Yahya of Ashnas, Ilyas of 
Herat. In A. H. 261 al-Mu^'tamid grants the government of 
all these districts to (i) Nasr b. Ahmad b. Asad b. Saman.

Alptagin endeavours to place Mansiir's uncle on the throne. 
Failing in this, he ultimately makes his way with 3000 fol- 
lowers to Ghazna. Abu'l-Hasan b. Simjiir succeeds him as 
governor of Khurasan, and marches against him with 15,000 
horsemen, but is defeated at Balkh. (385) Alptagin besides

goes on the pilgrimage, leax-ing Tahir b, Husayn as las 
viceroy. The latter refuses him entrance on his return, and 
Khalaf takes refiige with Mansur, who lends him troops 
wherewith he retakes Sistan. He is again dri\*en out by 
Tahir b. Husayn, who soon afterwards dies. He is socceeded 
by his son Hasan, who surrenders, and Khalaf is reinstated. 
Mansur reigned 1 5 years, and died in ShawTral, A. H. 36$. 
His wazir was Abii *^Ah' Muhammad b. Muhammad al-Bal^ami 
[MS.-Balkhi], who translated Tabari's chronicle into Per^an. 

(8) Niih b. Mansur. 

Contrary to the advice of Simjuri, he gives the premiership 
to Abu'l- Hasan al-^Utbi. (386) Hostility between al-^Utbi 
and Simjuri. Husamu 'd-Dawla Tash is made commander-in- 
chief and Fa'iq chamberlain. Khalaf revolts in Sistan. Nuh 
sends Husayn b. Tahir against him. Khalaf holds out for 
7 years, to the great hurt of the Samani prestige. Abu'l- 
Hasan b. Simjiir is removed from the government of Khurasan 
(where he is replaced by Tash) and despatched against Khalaf, 
with whom he comes to an understanding. He conspires 
with Fa'iq and murders Abu'l-Hasan al-'^Utbi. Disorders 
•supervene in Khurasan. Tash occupies Nishapur, Fa'iq Balkh, 
and Abu'l-Hasan b. Simjur Herat. Death of the latter, who is 
succeeded by his son Abii *^Ali, on whom Nuh confers the 
government of Khurasan. (387) War between Abu "^Alf and 
Tash. The latter 4^akes refuge with Fakhru'd-Dawla the 
Buwayhid in Gurgan. Fakhru'd-Dawla makes him governor 
of Gurgan until his death in A. H. 379. War between Gurgan 
and Khurasan. Abu '^Ali b. Simjur becomes governor of Khu- 
rasan. Niih, being suspicious of him, gives the government 
of Herat to Fa'iq. War between Fa'iq and Abu "^Ali Simjur. 


The former, defeated, flees to Bukhara, whence he is driven 
back to Balkh by Begtuziin. Abu 'Alf b. Simjur demands for 
himself from Nuh the government of Khurasan, which he 
obtains. He renounces his allegiance to the Samanis and 
takes refuge with Bughra Khan the Turk, whom he incites 
to attack the Samanfs, stipulating that he shall himself be 
recognized as king of Khurasan. Bughra Khan defeats and 
takes captive the Samani general. Niih (388) propitiates 
Fa'iq and sends him against Bughra Khan, with whom however, 
he was secretly in agreement, so that he fell back from 
Samarqand, followed by Bughra Khan, who advanced on 
Bukhara. Niih fled before him to Jurjaniyya (Khwarazm), which 
was governed by Ma'mun b. Muhammad-i-Farighuni ') and 
Abii *^Abdi'llah Khwarazm-Shah. Fa'iq went out from Bukhara 
to meet Bughra Khan, who proclaimed himself king, and sent 
Fa'iq to Balkh, but afterwards fell sick and retired to Tur- 
kistan. Niih invited the help of Subuktigin and his son 
Mahmud of Ghazna against Fa'iq and Abu "All b. Simjur. The 
latter, suddenly deserted by Dara b. Qabus, the Ziyarid 
prince of Tabaristan, was routed, and with Fa'iq took refuge 
with Fakhru'd-Dawla of Daylam (389). Abii "^Ali meditates 
treachery, but in dissuaded by Fa'iq. Nuh makes Subuktigin 
governor of Khurasan and gives hin? the title of Nasiru'd- 
Dawla and his son Mahmud that of Sayfu'd-Dawla (A. H. 384). 
Subuktigin goes to Herat and Mahmud to Nishapur. The 
latter is attacked and defeated by Abii ''Ali b. Simjur and 
Fa'iq, but, reinforced by his father Subuktigin, attacks and 
defeats them, whereupon they flee to the Castle of Kalat (MS. 
Kalab or Gulab). Fa'iq subsequently goes to llak Khan, brother 
of Bughra Khan, while Abu '^Ali b. Simjur goes to Ma'miin- 
i-Farighuni '). He is seized on the way by Abu '^Abdi'llah

Khwarazmshah, but is released by Ma'mun, who kills Abu 
'^Abdi'llah and sends Abii "^Ali b. Simjiir to Nuh. Nuh grants 
him an amnesty (390), but breaks his word and kills him. 
'Ilak Khan marches on Bukhara with Fa'iq, to whom Nuh 
cedes the government of Samarqand, and dies soon after- 
wards on Rajab 13. A. H. 387. 

(9) Abul-Hdrith Mansiir b. Nuh. 

He reigned for i year and 7 months. He appoints Fa'iq 
amir and Abu'l-Muzafifar al-^Utbi wazir. Ilak Khan again 
advances on Bukhara, takes it and appoints a governor, but 
the city is retaken by Mansiir and Fa'iq. War between 
Begtuzun and Abu'l-Qasim b. Simjur. The latter is defeated 
and flees to Fakhru 'd-Dawla in Gurgan, who, on his death, 
is succeeded by his son Majdu'd-Dawla Rustam. Sultan 
Mahmud of Ghazna attacks Begtuzun and takes Khurasan, 
but (391) retires in favour of Mansur. Mansur is blinded by 
Begtuzun and Fa'iq on Safar 18, A. H. 389. 

(10) 'AbdiCl-Malik [MS. \Amidu' l-Mulk\ b. Niih. 

He succeeded his brother and reigned 8 months and 17 
days. Mahmud of Ghazna, to avenge Abu'l-Harith Mansur, 
marches on Begtuzun and Fa'iq, drives them into Transoxiana, 
and occupies Khurasan. Fa'iq and Ilak Khan return and drive 
out ^Abdu'l-Malik from Bukhara. The Samani power comes 
to an end on Dhu'l-Hijja 22, A. H. 389. Al-Muntasir IsmaM 
b. Nuh, brother of '^Abdu'l-Malik, escaped to Khwarazm, 
where he collected an army and defeated Ilak Khan's brother 
at Samarqand. (392) 'Ilak Khan in person marches against 
him, and he retreats to Nishapur, where he is joined by 
Abu'l-Qasim b. Simjur. They are attacked by Mahmud of 
Ghazna and his brother Nasr. Al-Muntasir takes refuge 
with Qabiis b. Washmgir, who offers him the kingdom of 
Ray. He is joined by Minuchihr and Dara, sons of Qabus, 


and goes to Nfshapur. He is finally defeated by Nasr b. 
Subuktigi'n, and seeks aid from the Ghuzz Turks, by whose 
help he defeats llak Khan and recaptures Bukhara. He invokes 
and receives the help ofMahmud of Ghazna, who replaces him 
on the throne (393). He disbands his army, is taken off his 
guard by llak Khan, is defeated, flees westwards to Barda^ and 
is killed there by Arabs of the Banu Bahi'j in Rabi"^ i, A. H. 395. 

Section 3. — The Ghaznawi Dynasty. 

These were 14 in number, and reigned in all for 150 
years. Their founder, Subuktigi'n, was the slave of Alptigin, 
himself a slave of the Samanis. Alptigin, not trusting Mansur 
b. Niih the Samanid, fled from Khurasan to Ghazna, where he 
established himself, and ruled for 16 years. He conducted 
several campaigns against the Indians. On hisdeath Subuk- 
tigi'n, who was married to his daughter, waselected Atnir. 

(i) Subiiktigin. 
In A. H. 367 he subdued several provinces, attacked India 
and took prisoner the Indian King Jaypal (MS. Haytal), but 
released him on his undertaking to pay tribute. In A. H. 
384 Nuh b. Mansur the Samani conferred on him the 
government of Khurasan. In A. H. 387 he died and was 
succeeded by his son — 

(2) Isma^il b. Subiiktigin, 

Whose mother was Alptigi'n's daughter. He quarrels and 
fights with his elder brother. 

(3) Mahmiid Sayfu'd-Dawla, 
Who overcomes him. Nushtigi'n, Isma'iTs servant (394) 
is put to death by Mahmud, who sends his brother Ismail 
into exile. Mahmud is refused the governorship of Khu- 
rasan in favour of Begtiizun. He takes Nfshapur. He is 
attacked by the Samani prince Abu'l-Harith Mansur, to whom, 
from motives of loyalty, he offers no resistance. Later, when 


Fa'iq and Begtuzun kill Abu'l-Harith, who is succeeded by 
# "^Abdu'l-Malik, Mahmud seizes Khurasan, and makes his elder 
brother Amir Nasr governor of it. On the extinction of the 
Samani dynasty in A. H. 390, Mahmud is recognized as 
King of Ghazna and Khurasan (395) by the Caliph al-Qadir 
bi'llah, who confers on him the title of Amimi'l-Milla, which 
he afterwards supplements with that of Yaminiid-Dazvla. 
Mahmud, whose mother was the daughter of the Prince of 
Zawul (Zabulistan), fixes his capital at Balkh. His victories and 
achievements are well known, and are recorded in the Kitdb-i- 
Yamini of al-^Utbi, the Maqdmdt of y^i^z/ TViaJT [Mushkan], and 
the writings of Abu'1-Fadl ash-Shaybani '). His love of poets, 
on whom he spends a yearly sum of 400,000 dindrs. His 
minister consoles him for his personal ugliness. Discovery 
of a gold mine in Sistan. A mountain swallowed up in an 
earthquake. Campaign against Bushanj. In Muharram A. H. 
392 (396) Mahmud again invades India. Jaypal, the Indian 
King, burns himself alive, having appointed his son to suc- 
ceed him. Mahmud receives the title of Ghdsi, and afterwards 
, of Sultan. He subdues Sistan. He again invades India and 
penetrates to Multan and Kashmir. He defeats llak Khan. 

(397) Further campaigns of Sultan Mahmud. He kills Suri 
of the House of Ghur. Surf's son commits suicide. Destruc- 
tion of idols. Conquest of Gharjistan. Capture of Mardin. 

(398) Death of llak Khan in A. H. 403. He is succeeded by 
his brother Tughan. Mahmud helps him in his wars with 
the unbelievers, and obtains the daughter of llak Khan in 
marriage for his son Mas'^ud. He puts to death a Fatimi 
emissary from Egypt. His campaign against Qinnawj (A. H. 
409). Abundant spoils taken. Revolt of Afghans during his 
absence. Mahmud wrests "^Iraq from the Buwayhids in A. H.

By his father's will, ^Iraq, Khurasan and Khwarazm are 
given to him, and India and Ghazna to his brother Muham- 
mad. Two years later he takes Kirman from the Buwayhids. 
War between the two brothers. Muhammad is defeated, 
taken captive and blinded. Mas'^ud is defeated by the Seljiiqs 
(402} and killed in A. H. 433 after a reign of 10 years. After 
this the authority of the Ghaznawis was confined to Ghazna. 

(5) '^hnddti d-Dawla Muhammad b. Mahmud. 

He ruled for 4 years in Ghazna during the life of his 
brother, was then imprisoned by his brother for 9 years, 
and reigned for one year more after his brother MasMd's 
death. He was killed by his nephew in A. H. 434.

Mahmud, were surviving at this time, viz. Hasan, Nasr, Iran- 
shah, Khalid, "^Abdu'r-Rahim, Mansur, Humam, "^Abdu'r- 
Rahman and Isma'^il, all imprisoned in the Castle of Dihak. 
They escaped, but were betrayed by Nushtigin to Tughril, 
who killed them all. Three other princes of the House of 
Ghazna survived them, viz. Farrukh-zad, Ibrahim and Shuja"^, 
who were also imprisoned. Tughril was preparing to kill them 
also (404), when he was himself killed by Nushtigin.

(14) Sultdnu d-Dawla Arslanshah b. Mas^ud. 

His accession is contested by his brother Bahramshah, 
who is helped by his uncle Sanjar the Seljuq. He abandons 
Ghazna, and flees to Lahawar (Lahore), but returns again 
to fight his brother, by whom he is captured and put to 
death in A. H. 5 1 2, after a reign of 3 years. 

(15) Yaminu^ d-Dawla Bahrdmshdh b. Mas%d. 

He was a great patron of learning. The Imam Nasru'llah 
b. '^Abdu'l-Hamfd translated the Book of Kalila and Dimna 
from Arabic into Persian for him. He reigned for 32 ') years, 
when *^Ala'u'd-Dfn Husayn b. Husayn of Ghiir drove him 
into India, and bestowed his capital, Ghazna, on his brother, 
Sayfu'd-Din. (406). Bahramshah returns and defeats Sayfu'd-

himself to *^Ala'u'd-Dfn, and is interned in a castle for 10 years, 
where he dies in A. H. 555 ^). With his death the House 
of Ghazna came to an end. 

i) The Tabaqdt-i-Nasiri says that he reigned 41 years, and died in A. H.

Section ^. — The Ghiiri Dynasty. 

These were five in number, and reigned from A. H. 545 
until A. H. 609, 64 years in all. Their ancestor was Sur^ 
King of Ghur, who once defeated Sultan Mahmud. His 
grandson fled to India, where a son was born to him (407) 
named Sam, who became a Muslim and went to Dihlf, 
where he became a rich merchant. To him was born a son 
named Husayn, who suffered shipwreck in one of his voyages, 
and, being cast ashore, almost the sole survivor of the crew, 
was imprisoned for seven years, when a general amnesty to 
prisoners enabled him to make his escape. He fled to Ghazna 
and joined a band of robbers, who were finally captured 
by Sultan Ibrahfm, who put them all to death with the 
exception of Husayn, whose he spared. (408) He becomes 
Sultan Ibrahim's chamberlain, and afterwards, under Sultan 
Mas'^ud b. Ibrahim, governor of Ghur. 

(i) '^Alaud-Din Husayn b. Husayn. 

As the power of the House of Ghazna declines, he esta- 
blishes himself in their place, and makes his nephew, Ghi- 
yathu'd-Din Muhammad, governor of Ghazna, taking Herat 
as his own capital. There he died in A. H. 551 '), after a 
reign of six years. 

(2) Sayfu'd-Din Muhammad b. ^Alaud-Dln Husayn. 

Sanjar the Seljiiq took Balkh and gave it to Muhammad 
b. Mas"^ud b. Husayn. In the war which ensued, Sayfu'd-Dfn 
was killed in A. H. 558, after a reign of 7 years ^). 

(3) Ghiydthu'd-Din Abu'l-Fath Muhammad b. Sam b. Husayn. 

He succeeded his cousin, and fought a fierce fight with 
the Ghuzz (409), whom he subdued and compelled to pay

tribute, and set his cousin Mahmud b. MasMd ') over them 
as governor. To this Mahmud he gave his sister in marriage, 
and to them was born a son named Baha'u'd-DIn Sam. 
He made his brother Shihabu'd-Dln governor of Herat, and 
chose Ghazna as his own capital. Shihabu'd-Dfn's successful 
campaign against the Indians. Death of Tukush Khan at 
Khwarazm. The Ghuris take Merv. Ghiyathu'd-Dln and his 
brother besiege Nfshapur, which is defended by Tukush's 
son '^Alfshah, and take it. (410) After sundry vicissitudes, 
Khurasan falls into the hands of the Ghuris. Death of 
Ghiyathu'd-Dln in A. H. 598 after a reign of 40 years. 

(4) Shihdbud-Din Abu'l-Muzaffar Muhammad b. Sam 
b. Htisayn. 

He mourns for his brother. Muhammad Khwarazmshah 
(411) marches on Merv, retakes Khurasdn, allies himself with 
the Gur Khan of Qara-Khita'l and the King of Samarqand, and 
routs the armies of Ghur. Verses on this event by Firdaws, 
the lady-minstrel of Samarqand. The Qara-Khita'i army be- 
sieges Shihabu'd-Dln in Talaqan, but he buys his safety and 
retreats in disorder to Ghazna, where his slave 'Ildigiz refuses 
to admit him, so he passes on to Multan in Sind, where 
his slave Aybak was governor. (412) Having fought and 
killed Aybak, who refused to admit him, he collects fresh 
troops and returns to Ghazna, which submits. He makes 
peace with Khwarazmshah, to whom he cedes Merv and 
Nfshapur, retaining Balkh and Herat. In A. H. 602 he under- 
took a fresh campaign against India, but was finally assassi- 
nated by some Hindus after a reign of 4 years. 

(5) Mahmud b. Muhammad b. Sam b. Husayn. 
For a while Baha'u'd-Dln Sam b. Muhammad was his

rival, but he died suddenly. Mahmud gave the government 
of Bamiyan to the sons of Baha'u'd-Din Sam, '^Ala'u'd-Dln 
and Jalalu'd-Dfn. Owing to Mahmud's weakness, his pro- 
vinces were seized by his governors. Qutbu'd-Dfn Aybak 
took his Indian possessions and made Dihli his capital (413), 
where he was in turn succeeded by his slave Shamsu'd-Din, 
who assumed the title of Sultan, and whose sons succeeded 
him until they were overthrown by Sultan Jalalu'd-Din Khalaj. 
So likewise Taju'd-Din lldigiz took Ghazna and Zabulistan, 
and Qubacha Multan, Lahore, and other Indian provinces, 
while Sultan Mahmud retained only Herat and Ffruzkuh. 
Sultan Mahmud reigned 7 years, and in A. H. 609 was one 
day found dead in his house. The murderer was not found, but 
"^Alishah b. Tukush Khun was suspected of instigating the 
murder. Thus the line of the House of Ghur came to an 
end, and their possessions passed into the hands of Khwa- 
razmshah. The kings of Kart, who still ruled in Herat in 
the author's time, were descended from the Ghurids. 

Section 5. — The House of Day lam or Buwayh. 

These were 17 in number, and reigned for 127 years, 
from Dhu'l-Qa'da A. H. 321 until A. H. 448. According to 
their historian as-Sabf, their ancestor, Buwayh or Buya (414) 
was descended from Bahram Gur (genealogy given), and was 
born and dwelt in a village Kiyakilish in Daylaman near 
Qazwfn. He entered the service of Makan b. Kaki. He had 
three sons named '^All, Ahmad and Hasan. Asfar b. Shiriiya, 
Mardawfj and Washmglr were also in attendance on Makan. 
In A. H. 315 Asfar revolted against Makan, but a year later 
was assassinated by the Carmathians, and was succeeded by 
Mardawfj b. Ziyar, who took possession of Rudbar, Talaqan 
and Rustamdar, and later of Mazandaran, Ray, Qazwin, 
Abhar, Zanjan and Tarimayn. He also took and sacked Ha- 
madan, and made a great massacre there, and defeated 


Makan, whom he drove back into Khurasan. Mardawij then 
appointed '^Ah' b. Buya and his brothers to occupy Karaj, 
and himself marched on Isfahan, whence he drove out the 
governor of the Caliph al-Muqtadir, Muzafifar b. Yaqut, who 
fled to Fars to his father. (415) Meanwhile ^A\i b. Buwayh 
and his brothers were in Arrajan, and they with 300 men 
fell in with Yaqut with 2000 men at Kurkan. Reinforced 
by another 300 Lurs, the Buwayhids defeated Yaqut and 
marched on Fars, which they subdued. At this juncture 
Mardawij was murdered by his servants while he was in the 
bath, and his body was sent from Isfahan to Ray and there 
buried in A. H. 321. ^Ali b. Buwayh then occupied Isfahan, 
having defeated Washmgir b. Ziyar, whom he drove back 
into Tabaristan. Thus "^Ali b. Buwayh became supreme in 
"^Iraq and Fars on Dhu'l-Qa'da 11, A. H. 321, and took the 
title of —

He succeeded his uncle in Fars in A. H. 338, and reigned 
34 years. He was the best of all the Buwayhids. In A. H, - 
356 Washmgir b. Ziyar died in Tabaristan, and was succeeded 
by his son Bihistun. On the death of his father Ruknu'd- 
Dawla '^Adudu'd-Dawla proceeded to Baghdad in A. H. 367, 
and fought with his cousin '^Izzu'd-Dawla Bakhtiyar and 
killed him. The Caliph receives him with unprecedented 
honour, and added to his other titles that of Taju'l-Millat. 
In the same year Bihistun b. Washmgir died, and was suc- 
ceeded by his brother Qabus. (420) War between ^Adudu'd-

takes Tabaristan and Gurgan. The fugitives go to Khurasan 
and seek help from Nuh b. Mansur the Samanf, who sends 
Husamu'd-Dawla Tash and Fa'iq to help them. Mu'ayyidu'd- 
Dawla's wise wazir, the Sahib Isma'^il b. '^Abbad, detaches Fa'iq 
from his allies and defeats them. (421) The Samanid ruler sends 
his wazir Shaykh Abu'l-Hasan al-'^Utbi to help the allies,

fighting he makes peace with Majdu'd-Dawla on condition 
that these two provinces and Mazandaran shall be ceded to 
him. Qabus subsequently takes Gilan, and gives it to his 
son Minuchihr. Qabus reigned 15 years after his return. 
Then his army mutinied, made his son Minuchihr king, and 
put him in prison, where he shortly afterwards died. Minu- 


chihr makes peace with Sultan Mahmud of Ghazna (who 
gives him his daughter in marriage), and recognizes him as 
his overlord and suzerain. He puts to death his father's 
murderers. Majdu'd-Dawla, having reached years of discretion, 
desires to recover the powers assumed by his mother. She flees 
to Badr b. Hasanawayh the Amir (428) of Kurdistan. He helps 
her to defeat Majdu'd-Dawla, captures Ray, takes prisoner

years and 4 months. His brother Qiwamu'd-Dawla Abu'l- 
Fawaris, who was governor of Kirman, revolted against him, 
was defeated (431), and fled to Sultan Mahmud, who sent Abu 
Sa'^id at-Ta'i to help him. Aided by troops from Baghdad, 
Sultanu'd-Dawla again drove him out of Kirman, and he 
fled to Hamadan to Shamsu'd-Dawla b. Fakhru'd-Dawla.

He succeeded his father as ruler of Fars in A. H. 416. 
His uncle Jalalu'd-Dawla was Amfru'l-Umara at Baghdad, 
and there was war between them for 14 years, after which 
they made peace, and on his uncle's death Baghdad also 
came under his control, but the Turks paid no attention to 
him. He consequently went to Shiraz and left his son al- 
Maliku'r-Rahim to represent him at Baghdad. He reigned 
in all 24 years, for five of which he resided at Baghdad. 
Isma'^il of Shabankara revolted against him, and Tughril Beg 
the Seljuq prepared to attack him, but the mediation ot 
the Qadi Abii Muhammad an-Ndsihl '), author of the manual 
of Hanafite law entitled al-Mas^iidi, secured a peaceful solu- 
tion, which was ratified by the marriage of Tughril Beg's 
daughter to Abu Kalanjar, who died in A. H. 440. '^Iraq had 
by this time passed into the control of the §eljuqs.

imprisoned him in a fortress where he died. Fars was held 
for a time by Fadlawayh, and then passed into the pos- 
session of the Seljuqs. Mahk Abu ^^Ah' b. Abu Kalanjar 
survived his brother nearly 40 years, and held Nawbanjan 
in Fars and Kirmanshahan in fief. He was treated with 
honour by the Seljuqs, and died in the days of Barkiyaruq 
b. Malikshah in A. H. 487, and with him the Buwayhid 
dynasty came to an end. 

Section 6. — The Seljuqs. 

Of these there were 3 branches, viz. 

(i) The "Great Seljuqs", who ruled over the whole or the 
greater part of Persia. They were 14 in number, and reigned 
161 years, from A. H. 429 until Rabi"^ i, A. H. 590. 

(2) The Seljuqs of Kirman, who were 1 1 in number, and 
reigned 150 years, from A. H. 433 intil A. H. 583. 

(3) The Seljuqs of Rum (Asia Minor), who were 1 1 in 
number, and re-igned (434) 220 years, from A. H. 480 until 
A. H. 700. 

Eminence and virtue of the Seljuqs, who were free from 
the faults and defects by some of which nearly all other . 
"dynasties were characterized. Their orthodoxy, beneficence 
and care of their people. Hence they were not afflicted by 
rebellious vassals like most previous dynasties. 

(i) The Great Seljuqs. 

Abu'l-^'Ala al-Ahwal in his history traces Seljuq's descent 
through 34 generations from Afrasiyab. Seljuq had 4 sons, 
Isra'il, Mika'il, Musa and Yunus, who possessed spacious 
pastures in Turkistan. In A. H. 375 they moved into Trans- 
oxiana, and settled near Bukhara and Sughd and Samarqand. 
Sultan Mahmud of Ghazna (435) cultivated friendly relations 
with them, but, being alarmed by the boasts of Isra'il as to 
the number of men whom he could summon to his standard, 


treacherously seized him and imprisoned him in the castle 
of Kalanjar, where he died 7 years later. Isra'il's brothers 
wished to cross the Oxus, but Arslan Hajib advised Sultan 
Mahmud not to permit this. However permission was granted 
them, and they settled near Nasa and Baward (Abiward) in 
Khurasan. Mfka'fl had 2 sons, Chaghri Beg and Tughril Beg, 
who were at the head of these settlers. They won the esteem 
and confidence of the people of Khurasan. Sultan Mas'^ud of 
Ghazna on his accession attacked them, but was defeated. 

(436) Troubles in India prevented him from returning to 
the attack, and the governor [Su-bdshi) of Khurasan, whom 
he commanded to attack them, was immediately and com- 
pletely routed. 

(i) Tughril Beg b. Mikd'U b. Seljiiq. 

He was crowned at Nishapur in A. H. 429, and appointed 
his half-brother Ibrahim b. Inal governor of that city, where 
he exercised great tyranny. The remonstrances of the inha- 
bitants cause- him to amend his evil ways. In A. H. 432 ') 
Sultan Mas'^ud of Ghazna gave battle to the Seljuqs at Dan- 
danaqan near Merv, but was defeated and fled to Ghazna, 
where he put aside all further ambition and took to drink.' 

(437) The Seljuqs divide their empire as follows. To Chaghri 
Beg, the elder brother, was assigned Khurasan, and he made 
Merv his capital. Musa Payghu Kalan received Ghazna, 
Herat and India. To Qawurd the son of Chaghrf Beg were 
given Tabas and Kirman, Tughril Beg himself took ^'Iraq-i- 
■^Ajam and such further lands to the west as should subse- 
quently be conquered, and made Ray his capital. There he 
found the treasures of *^AH Kama of Daylam and Majdu'd- 
Dawla Rustam, which he distributed amongst his soldiers, 
and then set out to conquer ""Iraq, Adharbayjan, Kurdistan,

Fars, etc. The Caliph wished him to come to Baghdad, but 
this he was not able to do until 18 years after his accession, 
in A. H. 447. His name was inserted in the khutba and on 
the inscriptions of the coins, and he received the titles of 
Sultanu'd-Dawla and Yaminu Amiri'l-Mii'minin. The name 
of the Buwayhid al-Maliku'r-Rahim was added after his. 
In the year above mentioned he finally crushed the Bu- 
wayhids and performed the pilgrimage before entering 
Baghdad. (438) The revolt of al-Basasiri. Tughril makes 
"^Amidu'l-Mulk Abu Nasr Kunduri his wazir, and demands 
the Caliph's daughter in marriage. The Caliph, though un- 
willing to grant this, is compelled to accede to this request. 
Chaghri Beg died in Khurasan in A. H. 453, and was succeeded 
by his son Alp Arslan. Tughril died on his way to Ray, where 
he intended to consummate his marriage with the Caliph's 
daughter Sayyida (439), on Ramadan 8. A. H. 455, and Sayyida 
returned with her dowry to Baghdad. Tughril was 70 years 
old at the time of his death, and had reigned 26 years. 

(2) Alp Arslan b. Chaghri Beg. 

Alp Arslan's brother Sulayman was nominated as Tu- 
ghril's successor, but Tughril Beg's cousin Qutulmish de- 
feated and dispossessed him. Qutulmish was in turn defeated 
and slain by Alp Arslan, who, on his accession received 
from the Caliph al-Qa'im the titles of Sultan ''Adudu'd- 
Din ') and Burhanu Amiri'l-Mu'minin. He put to death

Alp Arslan's campaign against Georgia, which submits and 
gives hostages. Armenia submits to him, and the king of that 
country gives his daughter in marriage to Alp Arslan, who 
afterwards divorces her, and gives her in marriage to the 
Nizamu'l-Mulk, to whom she bore sons. Armanus, Emperor 
of the Byzantines, attacks Persia, but is utterly defeated at 
Malazgird, taken prisoner, and forced to give tribute. (442) 
Alp Arslan sends his brother Qawurd to attack Fadlawayhi 
the Shabankara in Pars. He himself marched against the 
Khan of Transoxiana, but was stabbed by his captive, Yusuf- 
i-Kutwal, in Rabi" i, A. H. 465, after he had ruled over 
Khurasan as his father's representative for 2 7a years, and 
over the whole of Persia for 9 '/a years (443). 

(3) Malikshdh b. Alp Arsldn. 

Though he had several elder brothers, the Nizamu'l-Mulk 
secured his succession. He was attacked by his uncle Qawurd, 
whom he defeated and took captive at Karaj, and who 
was subsequently poisoned on account of a threatened mu- 
tiny of the troops. (444) In A. H. 46^ ') his brother Tukush

tern possessions on Da'ud b. Sulayman b. Qutulmish, in 
whose family it remained until the time of Ghazan Khan ;

Mahmud, and is consequently furious with the Nizamu'1-Mulk, 
and poisons the mind of Malikshah against him and his 12 
sons, who all hold important governments. (448). Malikshah

Tutush '), Barkiyaruq's uncle, who had been blinded by 
Malikshah, revolted. Barkiyaruq, unable to oppose him, and 
hearing that Turkan Khatun had died (in Ramadan of this 
year) at Isfahan, marched thither, and was ostensibly recon- 
ciled with his brother Mahmiid. Some of Mahmud's amirs, 
however, seized Barkiyaruq and wished to blind him, but at 
this juncture Mahmud was attacked by small-pox, and died 
on the third day, and Barkiyaruq was declared king. He 
made the Mu'ayyidu'1-Mulk, son of the Nizamu'1-Mulk, his 
minister, and received from the Caliph the titles of Ruknu 
'd-Dfn and Yaminu Amiri'l-Mu'minin. In Safar, A. H. 488 he 
again fought a battle with his uncle Tutush ') near Isfahan,

Muharram, A. H. 492, near Sawa. In the same year (= A. D. 
1099) the Franks recaptured Jerusalem, and killed 70,000 Mus- 
lims. Muhammad b. Malikshah rebels against his brother 
Barkiyaruq. Majdu'1-Mulk of Qum (452) is dragged from 
Barkiyaruq's presence and murdered by the nobles. Barki- 
yaruq fled by way of Ray and Isfahan to Khuzistan, where 
he was reinforced by Sadaqa. Meanwhile Muhammad b. Ma- 
likshah was crowned at Hamadan, made Mu'ayyidu'1-Mulk 
his minister, and in Rajab, A. H. 493, defeated his brother 
Barkiyaruq, but in Jumada ii of the following year he was 
in turn defeated, and the Mu'ayyidu'1-Mulk taken prisoner 
(453), and a few days later put to death by Barkiyaruq 
with his own hands, on Sha'^ban 8. Meanwhile Muhammad 
b. Malikshah was reinforced by his great-uncle Sinjar. A 
temporary peace was ended by a battle near Sawa in Rabi"^ ii, 
A. H. 495. Muhammad was defeated, and fled to Isfahan, 
whence, after a second defeat, he was driven back to 
Ganja. In Jumada ii, A. H. 496, the two half-brothers 
made a peace based on the granting to Muhammad of the 
western provinces of the empire. Soon after Barkiyaruq's 
illness increased, and he died at Burujird on 12 Jumada ii, 
A. H. 498, naming his son Malikshah his successor, and 
Ayaz his Atabek or guardian. (454) He was only 25 years 
of age at the time of his death, and had reigned 12 years.

he captured and put to death, and imprisoned his nephew 
Malikshah. The Caliph received him with honour, and gave

Muhammad next applied himself to the task of suppressing 
the Assassins, who had waxed strong during the civil war, 
so that Ahmad b. "Attash had taken possession of the 
castle of Shah ') Dizh, close to Isfahan, and had won over 
to himself 30,000 men. SaMu'1-Mulk, the king's wazir, was 
one of these and he strove to compass the king's death by 
(455) bribing the surgeon-barber who was to bleed him to 
poison his lancet. This plot is revealed by the wife of Sa^'du 
'1-Mulk's chamberlain to her paramour, and by him to the 
king, who kills the barber and the wazir and his adherents.

shameful death. Story of ""AH b. Madanf, the blind decoy of 
the Assassins, and their secret murder-house. (456) Discovery

the king's death took place before anything was effected.

The Caliph Mustarshid (458) conferred on him the titles of 
Mu'^izzu'd-Din ') and Burhanu Amfri'l-Mu'minfn. He placed 
Bahramshah on the throne of Ghazna, and allowed him 
1000 dfnars a day. He defeats his nephew Mahmud b. Mu- 
hammad b. Malikshah, but forgives him and confers on him 
the government of the Western provinces, which, on Mah- 
mud's death, he transferred to Mahmud's brother Tughril, and 
afterwards on another brother, Mas'^ud. In A. H. 515 Sinjar's 
mother died. In A. H. 524 he took Samarqand from its ruler, 
Muhammad -) b. Sulayman, who had defied him, but afterwards 
reinstated him. In A. H. 530 Bahramshah of Ghazna opposed 
him (459), but was reduced to obedience. War with the 
Khwarazmshahs. In A. H. 535 he was defeated at Dasht-i-

them Muhammad b. Yahya, to whose death Khaqani 
alludes in a celebrated verse. Early in A. H. 551 Sinjar 's 
wife. Turkan Khatun, died, and Sinjar bribed his custodian, 
Amfr Ilyas, to help him to escape. By the help of Ahmad 
b. Qumaj, governor of Tirmidh, he was conveyed across the 
Oxus, and in Ramadan, A. H. 551, made his way back to 
Merv. On his arrival there, he fell sick, and died on (463) 
26 Rabr i, A. H. 552, at the age of 72. He was at first 
succeeded by his nephew Mahmud Khan b. Muhammad 
Khan, of the family of Bughra Khan, who ruled for five 
years and a half, but was deposed and blinded in Ra- 
madan, A. H. 557, and died a year later. Part of Khurasan 
was then seized by Mu'ayyad, and part by Khwarazmshah.

fiddHs at Tabriz in A. H. 533 as he was entering the bath. 
Sultan Mas'^ud fought and took captive the Caliph al-Mus- 
tarshid, who was also assassinated by fidais at Maragha.

uncle Muhammad b. Tughril, both of which are defeated. 
For two years, while the Atabek Muhammad was alive, all 
went well. In A. H. 581 took place that ominous and cele- 
brated conjunction of the stars which led the astrologers, 
and especially the poet Anwarl, to predict some great dis-

however, a remarkable calm prevailed. Verses satirizing 
Anwari. However in this year was born Chingfz Khan, who 
afterwards wrought such devastation in the world, and at 
the end of the same year the Atabek Muhammad died, and

Muhammad as Atabek, but soon quarrels with and revolts 
against Tughril, proclaims Sinjar b. Malikshah in his stead

Massacre of Assassins [Maldhida] at Baghdad. Sayfu'd-Din 
Mahmud releases Tughril and his son from captivity. In the 
middle of Jumada ii, A. H. 588 Tughril fought a battle with 
Qutlugh Inanj -) outside Qazwin, and defeated him. Soon 
afterwards Tukush Khwarazmshah invaded Persia, defeated 
Tughril, and compelled him to cede Ray. In A. H. 590 
Tughril was victorious in another battle with Qutlugh 'Inanj, 
and celebrated his victory at Ray with wine and poetry (477). 
Tukush returned to the attack, accompanied by Qutlugh 'Inanj. 
Tughril went into battle drunk, reciting verses from the 
Shdhndma,-dind struck a blow with his mace which fell on 
his own horse's leg, and brought both rider and steed to 
the ground. (478) 'Inanj Qutlugh killed him as he lay help- 
less on the ground. His head was sent to Baghdad and 
gibbeted opposite the Caliph's palace. Thus ended the power 
of the Seljiiqs in "^Iraq, which passed into the hands of the 
Khwarazmshahs. Most of the Atabeks and Amfrs of the Seljuqs 
who had betrayed their masters came to a bad end. Of those 

1) Mirzd Muhammad regards this well-known story as apocryphal, since he 
has shown by internal evidence that Anwari was already a poet of renown 
in A. H. 500, so that it is very improbable that he was still alive and active 
in A. H. 581.

who were faithful, Nusratu'd-Dfn Abu Bakr b. Muhammad b. 
'Ilduguz reigned for 20 years after his uncle Qizil Arslan 
over Arran and Adharbayjan, and died in A. H. 607. He 
was succeeded by his brother Muzaffaru'd-Din Uzbeg, who 
reigned for 15 years and died in A. H. 622, after which his king- 
dom (479) passed into the possession of the Khwarazmshahs. 

2. The Seljuqs of Kir man. 

The first of them was (i) Qawurd b. Chaghri Beg b. Mika'il, 
who become governor of Kirman in A. H. 433, and ruled 
over it for 32 years. In A. H. 455 he added Shiraz to his 
domains, and drove out the Daylamites. In A. H. 465 he 
was taken prisoner and poisoned by Malikshah, who gave 
Kirman to his son (2) Sultanshah, who died in A. H. 476 
after a reign of 12 years. He in turn was succeeded by his 
brother (3) Turanshah, who reigned 1372 years and died in 
A. H. 489. He was succeeded by his son (4) Iranshah, who 
reigned for 5 years, when his subjects, suspecting him of 
heresy, revolted against him and killed him in A. H. 494. 
He was succeeded by his cousin (5) Arslanshah b. Kirman- 
shah b. Qawurd, who reigned for 42 years, and died in 
A. H. 536. He was succeeded by his son (6) Muhammad-shah, 
who reigned for 14 years and died in A. H. 550. He was 
succeeded by his son (7) Tughrilshah, who reigned for 12 
years and died in A. H. 562. Thereupon his three sons (8) 
Arslanshah, Bahramshah and Turanshah contended for the 
kingdom for 8 years (480), each ruling the country for a 
time, while the land was wasted and laid desolate. Finally 
(9) Muhammad-shah b. Bahramshah succeeded, but Mubarak- 
shah and others of his kinsmen revolted against him, and 
he took refuge with Arslan b. Tughril, who gave him help, 
so that he compelled Mubarakshah to flee to Ghur. But in 
A. H. 583 the Ghuzz, led by MaHk Dinar, invaded Kirman 
and put an and to the Seljuq rule there. 


3. The Seljiiqs of Runt [Asia Minor). 

When Alp Arslan conquered and slew Qutulmish b. Isra'il, 
he wished to extirpate his family, but the Nizamu'1-Mulk 
dissuaded him, and sent them in command of troops to Syria, 
(i) Sulayman b. Qutulmish seized Antioch during the absence 
of its ruler. Sharafu'd-Dawla "^Ali *), who collected tribute for 
the Seljuqs in those parts, demanded tribute from Sulayman, 
who refused it, defeated and killed Sharafu'd-Dawla and 
added Aleppo to his domains. He wrote to inform Malikshah 
what had happened, but before an answer came was attacked 
by Taju'd-Dawla Tutush b. Alp Arslan (481), and, being 
deserted by his amirs, committed suicide. Malikshah was 
much distressed at his death, and appointed his son (2) Da'iid 
to succeed him. Danishmand, being threatened by the By- 
zantines, asked help from the surrounding Muslim poten- 
tates, and Da'ud came to his assistance, and was rewarded 
by the throne of Qonya (Iconium) in A. H. 480. He reigned 
20 years and died in A. H. 500. His brother (3) Qilij Arslan 
succeeded him and reigned for 40 years. At the end of his 
reign Sultan Mas'^ud ruled in "^Iraq, and the Caliph, disliking 
him, held out to Qilij Arslan hopes of the sovereignty of 
^Iraq, so, leaving his son Mas'^ud as his vicegerent in Asia 
Minor, he marched on Baghdad, but perished in A. H. 539, 
and was buried at Mayyafariqin. (482) His son (4) Mas^iid 
succeeded him, reigned 19 years, and died in A. H. 558. He 
was succeeded by his son (5) "^Izzu'd-Din Qilij Arslan, who 
reigned 20 years, and had 10 sons. The increasing weakness 
of the Danishmandi dynasty led him to covet their domains, 
and he took Siwas and Qaysariyya, and built Aq-saray, 
which places he finally retained in spite of the temporary

successes of the Atabek Nuru'd-Din, king of Syria, and 
Fakhru'd-Dfn ''Abdu'l-Masih against him. He divided his 
realms amongst his sons, and nominated as his successor the 
youngest, (6) Ghiyathu'd-Din Kay-Khusraw, who came to the 
throne in A. H. 578. His elder brother (7) Ruknu'd-Dfn Su- 
layman contests the kingdom with him (483), and besieges 
Qonya, which finally surrenders. Kay-Khusraw escapes to 
Constantinople. Ruknu'd-Din receives titles from the Caliph 
and takes Arzanu'r-Rum (Erzeroum), but is defeated by the 
Georgians. He then prepared to march into Rum, but died 
in A. H. 602, after a reign of 24 years and was succeeded 
by his son (8) ^Izzu'd-Dln Qilij Arslan, then only a child. 
When "^Izzu'd-Din had reigned 18 months, dissensions broke 
out amongst the amirs, and Ghiyathu'd-Din Kay-Khusraw 
returned, took Qonya, and deposed his nephew, who shortly 
afterwards died in captivity. Kay-Khusraw conquered Qara- 
man and took many fortresses near Ladhiqiyya (Latakia), 
and finally (484) fell in battle against the unbelievers in 
A. H. 609. He was succeeded by his son (9) "^Izzu'd-Din Kay- 
Ka'us, who died a year later, and was succeeded by his 
brother (10) ^Ala'u'd-Din Kay-qubad, who reigned 26 years, 
and was the most illustrious of this dynasty. His brother 
Ruknu'd-Din Sulayman rebelled against him, but was con- 
quered, imprisoned and shortly afterwards died. He also 
successfully waged war with Jalalu'd-Dfn Khwarazmshah. He 
died in A. H. 636, poisoned by his son (11) Ghiyathu'd-Dfn 
Kay-Khusraw, who succeeded him, and reigned 8 years. 
During his reign the Mongols over-ran Asia Minor, subduing 
in turn all its princes, and Ghiyathu'd-Din died in A. H. 644. 
He was succeeded by his son (12) Ruknu'd-Din Sulay man- 
shah '), whose minister was Mu'^inu'd-Din Parwana of Kashan, 
and who sent his brother ^Ala'u'd-Din Kay-qubad as ambas-

sador to the Mongol Qa'an. This brother returned, having 
successfully accomplished his mission, but was poisoned by 
Ruknu'd-Din on his arrivel at the frontier. (485) Another 
brother, Kay-Ka'iis, attempted to wrest the crown from him, 
but died ere he could effect anything. In A. H. 664 Ruknu'd- 
Dln Sulaymanshah was put to death by order of Abaqa 
Khan, and was succeeded by his son (13) Kay-Khusraw. As 
he was of tender years, the administration of the kingdom 
was entrusted by the Mongols to Mu*^fnu'd-Din Parwana, 
who married the young Sultan's mother. Kay-Khusraw reigned 
18 years, and was finally put to death by order of the 
Mongol Ahmad Khan. He was succeeded by (14) Ghiyathu 
'd-Din Mas*^ud b. Kay-Ka'us, who was appointed by Arghun 
Khan the Mongol. In his reign the realm was disturbed, 
and Antioch and Latakia were lost. A Mongol army was 
sent by Gaykhatu and Hulachii, and the author's cousin Fakh- 
ru'd-Din Muhammad Mustawfi was made wazir. He res- 
tored order to the kingdom, but was put to death through 
the intrigues of SaMu'd-Dawla, the Jewish wazir of Arghun 
Khan, and was succeeded in this office by Fakhru'd-Din 
(486) Ahmad-1-Arkushf of Tabriz. Ghiyathu'd-Dfn Mas'ud 
died in A. H. 697, and was succeeded by his nephew (15) 
Kay-qubad b. Faramurz, who was appointed by Ghazan 
Khan. Later he rebelled, but was defeated and deposed by 
the Mongols, and so ended the dynasty, save that some 
princelings of the House of Seljuq still held sway in the 
author's time in certain regions on the coast '). 

Section 7. — Khwdrazmshdhs. 

These were 10 in number, and reigned from A. H. 491 
until the month of Shawwal, A. H. 628, that is, for a period 
of 138 years. 

l) Historians differ much as to the duration of this dynasty and the names 
and numbers of its members.

He was originally the slave of Bulkatigin, a slave of Sultan 
Malikshah, to whose office he succeeded, becoming governor 
of Khwarazm (487), in which position he continued until 
his death, which happened in the time of Barkiyaruq. He 
was succeeded by his son —

Qutbu'd-Din in A. H. 491. He was a loyal and active vassal 
of the Seljuqs, and, after a reign of 30 years, died in A. H. 
521. He was succeeded by his son — 

(3) Atsiz b. Muhammad. 

He enjoyed great favour with Sinjar. This moved the 
other nobles to jealousy, and they succeeded in sowing 
mistrust between them. Atsiz retired to Khwarazm, and 
presently rebelled against the Sultan, who drove him out 
of Khwarazm, and gave the government of it to his nephew 
Sulayman b. Muhammad. On Sinjar's departure, Atsiz returned, 
recaptured Khwarazm, assumed the title of King and removed 
the names of the Seljuqs from the coinage and the khtitba, 
in A. H. 535. Congratulatory ode composed by Rashidu'd- 
Din Watwat in honour of this event. Anger of Sinjar (488), 
who returned and captured Khwarazm, but forgave Atsiz. 
Atsiz again revolts. Verses sent by him to Sinjar. Reproaches 
addressed by Sinjar to him. Adlb Sabir, the poet, is sent

(British Museum, Or. 141, f. 99a) it is stated that he was called after Gharcha 
in Samarqand because he had been bought there as a slave by Malikshah's 
servant Bulkatigin. As the author of the Guzida says just above that the dy- 
nasty began in A. H. 491 it appears that he does not reckon Niishtigin him- 
self as one of them, but begins with his son Muhammad. 


by Sinjar to Khwarazm. He exposes a plot devised by Atsiz 
against Sinjar's life, and is drowned in the Oxus by Atsiz. 
In A. H. 542 Sinjar again marches on Khwarazm and be- 
sieges the Castle of Hazarasp. Verses composed by Anwarf 
written on an arrow and shot into the Castle. (489) Verses 
composed by Rashid-i-Watwat in reply and similarly shot 
into Sinjar's camp. Anger of Sinjar, who vows if he catches 
Rashfd, to cut him into seven pieces. Hazarasp falls, but 
Rashid's life is saved by the intercession of a courtier. 
Khwarazm submits to Sinjar, who pardons Atsiz and rein- 
states him. Other towns in that region agrees to pay tribute. 
When Sinjar was taken captive by the Ghuzz, his nobles 
appealed for help to Atsiz (490), but Sinjar's release was 
effected before he could respond. He reigned 29 years, for 
16 years of which period he was an independent sovereign, 
and died on the 9th of Jumada ii, A. H. 551. Verses com- 
posed by Rashidu'd-Din Watwat on his death.

Unsuccessful rivalry of Sulayman, another son of Atsiz. 
On the death of Sinjar, Khurasan was filled with disorder, 
and Khwarazmshah succeeded in adding parts of it to his 
domains. The Khan of Samarqand slew the chief of the 
Qarlugh tribe, who appealed to ll-Arslan. He besieged Samar- 
qand and restored peace '). Seven years later he is attacked

Baghdad, against whom he undertakes a campaign. On the 
way to ^Iraq he defeats the Atabeks of Fars and Adhar- 
bayjan. The former, SaM b. Zangi, he takes captive, and 
before releasing him exacts a tribute amounting to two-thirds 
of the revenues of Fars : the latter, Uzbek, he puts to flight. 
He then marches by way of Asad-abad (near Hamadan) on 
Baghdad, but is stopped by heavy snow, which causes great 
losses to his army. His prestige is much injured by this 
reverse, and it was at this juncture that certain Mongol 
merchants, subjects of Chingiz Khan, who had come to 
Utrar, were put to death, and their goods seized (497), by 
the governor of that city, who was related to Khwarazm- 
shah's mother. Chingiz Khan sent ambassadors to demand 
reparation, and these too were insulted and killed. Thereupon 
Chingiz Khan declared war on Khwarazmshah, who had an 
initial success near Kashghar, in spite of which he retreated, 
filled with alarm at the determined valour of the Mongols. 
His minister, Badru'd-Din '^Amid, goes over to the Mongols, 
and, by forged letters, succeeds in sowing dissension between 
Khwarazmshah and his nobles, and thus makes easy the 
advance of the Mongols. (498) Khwarazmshah took refuge 
in the Island of Abasgiin in the Caspian, and died there in 
A. H. 617 in the greatest want and misery. His body was 
later exhumed and burned by the Mongols. He had reigned 
21 j'-ears, and left 7 sbns, Aq-Sultan, Arzlaq Sultan, Ku- 
chay-tigin and Oghul Malik, who perished at the hands of 
the Mongols and never succeeded to sovereign power, and 
Jalalu'd-Din Mankobirni, Ghiyathu'd-Din Pir-shah and Ruknu 
'd-Din Ghursa'iji, of whom the last, though the youngest, 
first succeeded to the Throne on his father's death. 

(8) Ruknu'd-Din Ghursa'iji. 

His father left him ^Iraq, and ^Imadu'1-Mulk was his mi- 
nister. After his father's death he went to Kirman, seized the 


treasury there, and returned to Isfahan, where the citizens 
opposed him by force of arms, and some thousand persons 
were slain. Thence he went to Ray and Ffruzkuh, and 
entrenched himself in the Castle of Gird-Kuh, which the 
Mongols besieged for 6 months and finally captured. As 
Ruknu'd-Din refused to bow the knee before the Mongol 
commander (499) they slew him and all his soldiers and 
attendants in A. H. 619. 

(9) Ghiydthu d-Din Pir-Shdh. 

On the death of his father he went to Kirman, which his 
father had assigned to him. Shuja^u 'd-Din Abu'1-Qasim-i- 
Zawzani, who had hitherto acted as his deputy, refused to 
admit him, so he turned back on Fars, where he defeated 
the Atabek SaM b. Zangi, devastated the country, passed 
on to "^Iraq, and assumed the crown at Ray. Here he was 
attacked by his brother Jalalu'd-Din, who had just returned 
from India, and was compelled to submit to him. After a 
while he killed Nusrat Malik b. Kharmfl, a favourite of 
Jalalu'd-Din, and fled into Khuzistan and later to Kirman, 
where Buraq Hajib received him with magnanimity and 
concluded a treaty with him. Later a conspiracy was formed 
by some of Buraq's relatives (500) to put Ghiyathu'd-Di'n 
on the throne. Buraq discovered it, publicly put the con- 
spirators to death, and secretly strangled Ghiyathu'd-Dfn 
and his mother, whom he had taken to wife. This happened 
in A. H. 627. 

(10) Jaldlu^ d-Din Mankobirni. 

On his father's death he proceeded to Khwarazm, but, 
not being loyally supported by his amirs, he retreated to 
Ghazna. His brothers Arzlaq and Aq-Sultan followed him 
to persuade him to return, but when they reached the fron- 
tiers of Khurasan they were attacked by the Mongols and 


killed. In that year Jalalu'd-Dfn fought seven battles with 
the Mongols and was victorious in all, until finally Chingiz 
Khan himself marched against him, in the month of Shaw- 
wal, A. H. 618, and defeated him. Jalalu'd-Din with 700 of 
his men attempted to swim the river into Sind, but only 
he and seven of his companions reached the other shore in 
safety. He then gathered a fresh army, conquered a consi- 
derable portion of India, and remained there two years, 
when, hearing that Chingiz Khan had withdrawn from Persia, 
he left Jahan Pahlawan Uzbek as his deputy in India (501), 
and himself set out for Persia, where he arrived in A. H. 
621. He first entered Kirman, and there married the daughter 
of Buraq Hajib. Thence he proceeded to Fars, and married 
the daughter of the Atabek SaM. Thence he advanced 
through Isfahan to Ray, where his brother Ghiyathu'd-Din 
was ruler. Thence to Baghdad, where he defeated the Arabs. 
He next seized Adharbayjan, and married Malika Khatun, 
daughter of the Seljuq Tughril, who had been divorced by 
the Atabek Uzbeg. Jalalu'd-Din, next subdued Georgia. He 
returned from Tiflis to Kirman in seventeen days, but was 
met on his approach by its ruler Buraq Hajib, who persuaded 
him to retire '). Meanwhile al-Malik al-Ashraf abducted Malika 
Khatun from the Castle of Khuy, while the Georgians revolted. 
Jalalu'd-Din thereupon marched to Akhlat to punish al-Malik 
al-Ashraf, but ere it surrendered news came that the Indian 
army had attacked "^Iraq. Jalalu'd-Din now completed the 
subjugation of Georgia, reduced Akhlat, and took prisoner 
the wife of al-Malik al-Ashraf. (502) He next marched into 
Syria and Asia Minor to punish al-Malik al-Ashraf and "Ala'u 
'd-Din Kay-qubad the Seljuq, but, being at the time ill, 
was repulsed. Shortly afterwards, however he renewed his 
campaign, and devastated their territories. Verses composed by

is an obvious error, as the latter survived the former and died in A. H. 632.

advanced on Isfahan. Both right wings were defeated. Death

of the ancient Kayani kings, whom Jalalu'd-Dfn used to call 
his "father", and to whom he had given the government 
of Khurasan) aged sixty years, in this battle. The Mongols 
march on Khurasan, and Jalalu'd-Din retires to the moun- 
tains of Luristan, while his fugitive troops enter Isfahan. 
Good offices of the Qadf Ruknu'd-Dfn Sa'^idf in keeping the 
peace between them until the return of Jalalu'd-Dfn seven 
days later. He goes to Arran and Kurdistan, and in despair 
takes to drink. Verses on this by Nuru'd-Dfn Munshl. (503) 
The Mongols pursued him thither, and in the middle of 
Shawwal, A. H. 628 (= middle of August, A. D. 1231) sur- 
prised him drinking. He escaped, and' wandered into the 
mountains, where he was murdered by a Kurd whose bro- 
ther he had slain at Akhlat. With him perished the dynasty 
of the Khwarazmshahs, and the Mongols became supreme 
in Persia. 

Section 8. — The Atdbeks. 

Of these there were two separate dynasties, one in Syria 
and Diyar Bakr, the other in Fars. The former comprised 
nine rulers, who reigned from A. H. 481 until A. H. 658, for 
177 years; the latter, known as the Salghurfs, comprised 
eleven rulers, who reigned 120 years, from A. H. 543 until 
A. H. 663. 

I . The Salghuri (? Sunquri) Atdbeks. 
These are said to be descended from Salghur, who was 

i) The MS. has -Din instead of -Dawla^ wrongly. 'Ald'u'd-Dawla was the 
title borne by a series of rulers of Yazd descended from ^Ald'u'd-Dawla Abit 
Ja'far Muhammad called Kdkiiya. See notes to Chahdr Maqdla^ pp. 169 — 170. 


of the race of Taq Khan son of Aghur ') Khan, and who 
joined the Seljuqs, and was given the position of chamberlain. 
According to another account, the Atabeks of Diyar Bakr 
and Fars were originally of one family, while others say 
that the Atabeks of Shfraz were descended from Salghur, 
and the Atabeks of Diyar Bakr and Syria from Aq-Sunqur 
(504), the favourite slave of Malikshah, on whom the govern- 
ment of Aleppo was conferred in A. H, 481. He ruled this 
city for ten years, and died in A. H. 491. His son (2) Zangi 
succeeded him, and was made governor of all Syria by 
Barkiyaruq, with the title of ^Imadu'd-Dfn ^). In the reign of 
Muhammad b. Malikshah, Arbll, Mosul and part of Diyar 
Bakr were added to his dominions. He had 3 sons, Buzaba ^), 
Nuru'd-Dfn [Mahmud] and Mawdud. Buzaba ^) was made 
governor of Fars, Nuru'd-Din [Mahmud] of Syria, and Mawdud 
of Diyar Bakr. Nuru'd-Din Zangf died in A. H. 541 *). His son 
(3) Nuru'd-Dfn [Mahmud] reigned in Syria 46 years and died 
in A. H. 568 ^). He was succeeded by his son (4) al-Malik 
as-Salih, who was driven out by his cousin (5) [Qutbu'd-Din] 
Mawdud, who reigned 43 years in Diyar Bakr and died in 
A. H. 565. He was succeeded by his son (6) Sayfu'd-Dln 
Ghazi, who took Syria from his cousin al-Mahk as-Salih, but 
lost it to the Egyptians in A. H. 571, and died in A. H. 576. 
He was succeeded by (7) his brother ["Izzu'd-Dfn] Mas^ud 
b. Mawdud, who reigned for 13 years and died in A. H. 
589. After him reigned his son (8) Arslanshah (505), who 
[had many contests with the House of Ayyub, and died in 
A. H. 607. He was succeeded by (9) his son Mas'^iid, known 
as Malik-i-Qdhir , who died in A. H. 615. He was succeeded

Dln Lulu, who ruled for 58 years, died in A. H. 659, and was 
succeeded by his son (12) al-Malik as-Salih, who was killed 
by the Mongols, into whose hands his kingdom then passed. 

2. The Atdbeks of Pdrs. 

The first of these was (i) Sunqur b. Mawdud, whom some 
assert to have been the son of Salghar b. Aqsunqur, and 
others of Zangi b. Aqsunqur, the founder of the Atabeks 
of Diyar Bakr, who, to avenge his uncle Bfzaba, killed in 
battle by Sultan Mas"'ud the Seljuq in A. H. 543, revolted 
during the reigns of this king and of his nephew Muhammad 
b. Mahmud and made himself king of Fars, where he reigned 
13 years, and died in A. H. 556. The Masjid-i-Jami*^ of Shfraz 
was built by him, and also a rest-house {ribdt). 

He was succeeded by his brother (2) Zangf b. Mawdud, 
who had first, however, to drive out two rival claimants, 
after which he was recognized as Atabek of Fars by the 
reigning Selj liq, " Arslan b. Tughril. He reigned 14 years, 
repaired and endowed the mausoleum of the celebrated saint 
Shaykh Abu 'Abdi'llah [b.] Khafff^), and died in A. H. 570 
(MS. '60 erroneously). 

He was succeeded by his son (3) Takla, who reigned 20 
years and died {506) in A. H. 590. 

He was succeeded by (4) Tughril b. Sunqur b. Mawdud, 
whosp rule was, however, contested by his cousin Sa'^d b. 
Zangf, and in this fratricidal war Fars was devastated by 
plague and famine. In A. H. 599, after a reign of 9 years, 
Tughril was overcome and taken captive by (5) SaM b. 
Zangi, whose reign opened with a period of fearful famine, 
followed by plague. After gradually restoring the country

to prosperity, he added Kirman to his dominions and 
pacified Shabankara. In A, H. 613 he prepared to attack 
'^Iraq, but was taken prisoner by the troops of Muhammad 
Khwarazmshah, and had to purchase his liberty by making 
over to the conqueror two-thirds of the revenues of Fars. 
On his return, his son Abu Bakr refused to let him enter 
Shfraz, and in the fight which ensued he was wounded in 
the eye by an arrow. (507) But the people of the city 
brought him in secretly by night, and he cast his son Abu 
Bakr into prison. When Sultan Jalalu'd-Dln Khwarazmshah 
passed through Fars on his return from India, he interceded 
for, and obtained the release of Abu Bakr. Sa^d died in 
A. H. 628 after a reign of 28 years. 

He was succeeded by his son (6) Abu Bakr b. SaM b. 
Zangf, who proved a wise, just and magnanimous sovereign, 
and a generous patron of learned and pious men. His chief 
noble was Muqarrabu'd-Dfn Abu'l-Mafakhir Mas^ud. Abu 
Bakr added to his dominions Kfsh, Bahrayn, Qatff and Lahsa 
(or al-Ahsa). Public buildings erected by him (508). His 
endowment of the mausoleum of Abu ^Abdi'Uah [b.] Khafif '). 
He died in A. H. 658 after a reign of 30 years. 

He was succeeded by his son (7) Sa^d II, who died twelve 
days after his father, and was in turn succeeded by his -son 
(8) Muhammad, who was but a child, and whose nominal 
reign (for the actual conduct of affairs was in the hands of 
his mother Turkan Khatun) lasted only two years and seven 
months, for he died in the last month of A. H. 660. 

He was succeeded by (9) Muhammad Shah b. Salghur- 
shah b. SaM b. Zangf, who reigned only 8 months, when 
he was overthrown and put to death by Turkan Khatun on 
Ramadan 10, A. H. 661. 

He was succeeded by his brother (10) Seljuqshah b. Sal- 

l) For his biography see Jami's NafahatuH-Uns^ pp. 262 — 4. 


ghurshah, who defeated and slew Turkan Khatun. Her 
brother, ''Ala'u'd-Dawla, sought help from Hulagii Khan (509), 
against whose troops Shlraz was gallantly defended by Mu- 
qarrabu'd-Din Mas'ud. Seljuqshah was finally killed by the 
Mongols in Safar, A. H. 663. 

He was succeeded by (11) Abish Khatun, daughter of 
SaM II. She reigned for a year over Fars, after which she 
was given in marriage to Mangu Tfmur the son of Hulagu 
Khan, and Fars passed directly under the control of the 
Mongols, though Abish continued to be the nominal ruler for 
nearly 20 years. 

Section g. — The Isma^ilis. 

This section is divided into two Discourses, the first treating 
of the Isma'^ilfs of Egypt, Syria and the Maghrib, the second 
of the Assassins or Isma'^ills of Alamiit. 

First Discourse, The IsmaHlis of Egypt etc. [Fdtimids). 

These, fourteen in number, reigned from A. H. 296 until 
A.H. 556, i.e. for 260 years, and are mentioned here because 
of their connection with the Persian Isma'^ilfs commonly known 
as the Assassms. 

(i) Al-Mahdi. 

(510) According to the author of the TaWikh-i-Jahdn- 
Gushd, the Sunnis assert that he was descended from "^Ab- 
du'llah b. Salim of Basra, while the people of *^Iraq trace 
his descent from '^Abdu'llah b. Maymiin al-Qaddah, who was 
one of the propagandists of the Imam Isma'^fl b. Ja'^far as- 
Sadiq. On the other hand Abu Talib 'All b. Najib ') al-Bagh- 
dadf in his '^Uyiinii t-Tawdrikh asserts that al-Mahdi was 
directly descended from the Imam Isma'^fl as follows: [Abu] 

i) Other MSS. have Khdzin or Anjab. See p. 2 supra (14). 



Muhammad ['Ubaydu'llah] al-Mahdi b. 'Abdu'llah ar-Radi 
b. Qasim at-Taqi b. Ahmad al-Wafi b. Muhammad al-Wasf 
hi Isma^il, etc., which pedigree would make him the twelfth 
of the Isma'^ili Imams and the tenth in direct descent from 
'^Ali b. Abi Talib. This Muhammad, who was the great-great- 
grandfather of the Mahdi, fled to Ray to escape the perse- 
cution of the '^Abbasid Caliphs, and is buried near there in 
Muhammad-abad. His descendants settled at Qandahar, where 
the family is well known. The Mahdi declared himself in 
A. H. 296, and in A. H. 302 overcame the Banu Aghlab (who 
then ruled in North Africa on behalf of the "^Abbasid Caliph 
al-Muqtadir), and possessed himself of their domains. Herein, 
say the Isma'^ilis, was fulfilled the Prophet's saying, "At the 
beginning of 300 years [i.e. of th€ fourth century of the Flight] 
the Sun shall arise from its Setting-place" [Mag-krid]. Al-Mahdi 
reigned 26 years, and died in A. H. 322 at the age of 62 years. 
He was 5 years younger than the Imam Mahdi recognized 
by the rival sect of the Shfa, the Ithnd "^ashariyya or "Sect 
of the Twelve". 

(2) Al-Qd'im bi-amri' lldh. 

Al-Mahdi was succeeded by his son Ahmad ') al-Qa'im, 
who was defeated by the Sunnis under Abu Yazid and 
imprisoned at al-Mahdiyya (in Tunisia). (511) He died in 
Shawwal, A. H. 334, but his death was concealed until his 
son could succeed him. He reigned twelve years. 

(3) Al-Mansur bi-Quwwati lldh. 

Isma^il b. al-Qa'im succeeded his father, defeated and 
killed Abu Yazid, reigned 7 years, and died at Mahdiyya 
in A. H. 341. 

i) Ibnu'l-Athir, Ibn Khallikan and the Jahdn-drd give his name as Mu- 
hammad, which is probably correct. 


(4) Al-MuHzz li-Dlnt'lldh Abu Tamim Md^add b. Mansiir. 

He succeeded his father, ruled wisely and well, and added 
Egypt to the Fatimid domains, taking it by stratagem from 
the "^Abbasid governor Kafur. In A. H. 362 he began to 
build Cairo, which he made his capital. He also took the 
Hijaz, and, after a reign of 24 years, died in A. H. 365. 

(5) Al-^'Aziz billdh Abu Mansur b. al-Mu'izz. 

He succeeded his father and added Syria to his domains, 
after killing Alptigin, the *^Abbasid governor. He made a 
Jew governor of Syria, and a Christian governor of Egypt, 
but later dismissed them in response to the complaints of 
his Muslim subjects. (512) He reigned 21 years and died in 
A. H. 386 [MS. 380]. 

(6) Al-Hdkim bi-amri' lldh Abu ^Ali Mansur b. '^Aziz. 

He succeeded his father, and made a great show of piety and 
humility, riding unattended through the streets mounted on 
an ass, and claiming to hold converse with God like Moses. 
His rigorous enactments against wine and women did not 
prevent him conniving at all sorts of vice on the part of 
his courtiers. Angered at the growing discontent, he lays 
waste the country. Other eccentricities on his part. Citation 
from the Kitdb-i-Istizhdr of the Qadi Ahmad-i-Damghan{ 
concerning ^Alawf-i-Madanf, whom al-Hakim commissioned 
(513) to remove the bodies of Abu Bakr and "^Umar from their 
graves, which impious attempt was miraculously prevented. 
Al-Hakim's intention of putting to death his sister on a 
charge of adultery is frusti'ated by her causing him to be 
assassinated in A. H. 411 after he had reigned 25 years.

in Cairo (514) in A. H. 427. ' 

(8) Al-Mustansir bi'lldh Abii Tamim Md'add b. az-Zdhir. 

He was only 7 years of age when he succeeded to the 
throne of his father. His avarice. He reigned 60 years. Re- 
bellion subdued. He had 3 sons, Nizar, Ahmad and ^Abdu 
'1-Hamid, and originally nominated the first named as his 
successor, but afterwards set him aside in favour of Ahmad, 
to whom he gave the title of al-Musta'^li. The allegiance of 
the Isma^ilis was divided between these two. The celebrated 
Hasan-i-Sabbah espoused the cause of Nizar, and thereafter 
carried on the propaganda in his name. Al-Mustansir died 
in A. H. 487.

(515) He succeeded his father, captured his brother Nizar 
and his two sons, who endeavoured to escape, at Alexan-

obtained possession of some of the coasts of Syria. Al-Mus-

A. H. 497.

He succeeded his father. When, in A. H. 554, the Franks 
prepared to invade Egypt. Al-Fa'iz, filled with alarm, 
sought protection from the ruler of Syria, who sent al-Malik 
an-Nasir Salahu'd-Dfn Yusuf b. Ayyiib (Saladdin), the go- 
vernor of Hims (Emessa), to help him. On his approach, the 
army of the Franks fled. After this a quarrel arose between 
al-'^Adid and his wazir Shawir. Al-^'Adid fled for protection 
to Salahu'd-Din, who put Shawir to death. In A. H. 556 
(or, according to another statement, in A. H. 565) the khutba 
was pronounced in Egypt in the name of the "^Abbasid Ca- 
liph •*), and a week afterwards al-'^Adid, the last Fatimid Ca- 
liph, died, and Salahu'd-Din took possession of Egypt, taking 
the title of Siiltdn ("king"). In A. H. 571 he also took pos- 
session of Syria, and expelled therefrom the Atabek Sayfu 
'd-Dfn Ghazl Salghuri. In A. H. 585 ^) he took Jerusalem from 
the Franks, and afiixed an inscription on the Gate. In A. H. 
589 *) he also took "^Akka (St. Je^n d'Acre). On the decline 
of the House of Ayyiib, Egypt passed (517) into the hands 
of slave-dynasties [Mamluks). The author adds that at the 
time he wrote Nasiru'd-Dfn was king there, and was reported 
to have recognized a scion of the House of ^Abbas as Caliph

on condition of himself being recognized as king. But this 
Caliph is never seen by the people, all communications with 
him passing through his chamberlain. 

Second Discourse of Chapter IV, Section g. 
The Isma^ilis of Persia, or „ Assassins". 

These were eight in number and reigned for 171 years, 
i. e. from A. H. 483 until A. H. 654. They were as follows. 

(i) Hasan-i-Sabbdh. 

His genealogy and alleged descent from the Himyarite 
kings of Yaman. He was at first a Shf 1 of the Sect of the 
Twelve, and was chamberlain to Alp Arslan the Seljuq, but 
was converted to the Sect of the Seven, or Isma'^ilfs, by 
'Abdu'1-Mahk b. 'Attash. His quarrel with the Nizamu'1-Mulk 
leads to his dismissal from the Court. He goes to Ray, his 
native place, in A. H. 464, whence in A. H. 471 he proceeds 
to Syria, and carries on the propaganda for Nizar b. Mus- 
tansir. There he remained several years, during which period 
he is alleged to have been entrusted by Nizar with the 
care of one of his sons, whom he brought back with him 
to Persia. Fearing the vengeance of the Nizamu'1-Mulk, he 
remained in hiding in Isfahan, in the house of the Ra'is 
Abu'1-Fazl Lunbani, to whom he said one day, "If I had two 
congenial friends, I would destroy this empire". Abu'1-Fazl, 
deeming him mad (518), began to give him medicines appro- 
priate to that distemper. Hasan-i-Sabbah, perceiving this, 
fled to Ray. He converted to his doctrine sundry warders 
of castles, such as Ra'is Muzafifar of Gird-Kuh, and Husayn 
of Qa'in, governor of Turshiz. He then went to Qazwin, and 
in,A. H. 483 (a number equivalent to the sum of the nume- 
rical values of its component letters) captured the Castle of 
Alamiit, which, being interpreted, means "the Eagle's Nest" 


{Aluh-dmut), of which the governor was Mahdi-i-^Alawi. De- 
scription of the stratagem whereby Hasan-i-Sabbah obtained 
possession of the Castle, It is attacked (519) by Altun Tash, 
a slave of Malikshah, who reduces it to considerable straits, 
but dies before he has captured it. Rapid progress of the 
propaganda. Malikshah sends Arslan Tash and Qizil-Tdsh 
against the Assassins; who are reinforced by the Dihdar 
Abu *^Ali Ardistani with 300 men. Death of Arslan Tash 
and assassination of the Nizamu'1-Mulk. Death of Malikshah 
at Baghdad shortly afterwards. Civil war between Barkiyaruq 
and Muhammad. Further progress of Hasan-i-Sabbah's pro- 
paganda. His lieutenant, Kiya Buzurg-umid, takes the Castle 
of Lammasar at the end of A. H. 495. (520) Sultan Muhammad 
b. Malikshah undertakes fresh operations against the Assas- 
sins, and besieges Alamut for eight years, but dies before 
he can effect anything. Sultan Sanjar in turn attempted to 
extirpate the Assassins, but was intimidated by an attempt 
on his life into abandoning it. Hasan-i-Sabbah's meeting 
with his former host, Ra'is Abu'1-Fazl. Ascetic life of Hasan- 
i-Sabbah. During the 35 years of his rule no one made or 
drunk wine in his domain. He puts to death his two sons, 
one for wine-drinking and the other for fornication (521). How 
the custom arose amongst the Assassins of sending away 
their wives and daughters in time of stress to some safe 
place. Only twice during his reign did Hasan-i-Sabbah come 
out of his house. His books and his "Esoteric" {Bdtini) doc- 
trine. He died on Wednesday the 6th of Rabi'^ ii, A.H. 518, 
and was succeeded by — 

(2) Kiyd Buzurg-umid of Rudbdr. 

He, while professing the belief of his predecessor, observed 
the external forms of the law of Islam. He reigned 14 years, 
two months and twenty days, and died on the 26th of 
Jumada ii, A. H. 532. 



(3) Muhammad b. Buzurg-umid. 

He reigned 24 years, 8 months and 7 days, and (522) 
died on the 3rd of Rabf i, A. H. 557. His son would have 
claimed the rank of Imam, but he prevented him. 

N (4) Hasan b. Muhammad b. Buzurg-umid. 

On his father's death he again claimed to be the Imam, 
and professed to be the great-grandson of Nizar b. Mustansir. 
Explanations of this claim, and pedigree advanced by Hasan. 
He institutes the impious '^Idul-Qiydm, or „ Festival of the 
Resurrection", on Ramadan 17. A. H. 559, and abrogates all 
outward observances of the Law (523). This Festival marks 
the commencement of the new era adopted instead of the 
hijra by the IsmaS'lis. Hasan is given the title of '^ala Dhi- 
krihi' s-Saldm ("on his Mention be Peace"), and is called 
"Lord" by his followers, but by the Muslims of Qazwfn 
"Kiira Kiya". His heretical doctrines and antinomianism 
cause discontent amongst some of his followers, and he is 
finally killed by a scion of the House of Buwayh, who was 
his brother-in-law, on the 6th of Rabf^ i, A. H. 561, after a 
reign of 4 years. 

(5) Muhammad b. Hasan '^ala Dhikrihi s-Saldm. 

On his accession (524) he put to death his father's mur- 
derer and all his relatives, and carried on his father's here- 
tical doctrines and practices. He died after a reign of 46 
years on the loth of Rabf i, A. H. 607, poisoned, as some 
assert, by his son and successor. 

(6) Jaldlud-Din Hasan b. Muhammad. 

He repudiated the heresies of his father and grandfather, 
enforced on his followers the observance of the Law of Islam, 
and was recognized by the Caliph as a Muslim and called 
^ Naw-Musulmdn" . He invites the ^ulamd of Qazwin to inspect 



the library of Alamut and burn such books as they consider 
heretical, and curses his heretical ancestors and predecessors. 
In A. H. 609 he sent his mother to perform the Pilgrimage, 
and she was highly honoured by the Caliph, and given pre- 
cedence over all other princes. Permission was also given 
for intermarriage between members of Jalalu'd-Din's family 
and the nobles of {525) Gilan and other Muslims, and he 
availed himself of this permission to marry four ladies of 
Gllan, one of whom, the daughter of the Amir of Kutam '), bore 
him 'Ala'u'd-Dln, who afterwards succeeded him. Jalalu'd-Din 
also made friends with Muzafifaru'd-Dln Uzbek, the Atabek 
of Adharbayjan, and joined him in a campaign against Mun- 
gulf the ruler of "^Iraq, as a result of which Abhar and 
Zanjan were added to his domains. When Chingfz Khan 
invaded Persia, Jalalu'd-Dfn made his submission and received 
promises of security. He died in the middle of Ramadan, 
A. H. 518 (some say from dysentery, others by poison 
administered by his wives and sister) after a reign of 1 1 '/2 years. 

(7) '^Alau'd-Din Muhammad b. Jalalu'd-Din. 

He was only nine years old at the time of his father's 
death and his accession. He abandoned his father's orthodoxy, 
and reverted to the heretical beliefs and practices of his 
earlier ancestors. His madness increases the prevailing dis- 
orders. (526) Enmity between him and his son Ruknu'd-Din 
Khurshah. Hasan-i-Mazandaranl murders *^Ala'u'd-Dfn, as" he 
hes drunk at Shfr-Kuh, at the end of Shawwal, A. H. 653, 
after he had reigned 35 years and one month, he being 
then 45 years of age. Verses on his death by Mawlana 
Shamsu'd-Din Ayyub Ta'usf. 

(8) Ruknu d-Din Khurshah b, '^Alau'd-Din. 
To avert from himself the suspicion of parricide, he put

to death Hasan-i-Mazandaranf, his father's murderer, and his 
sons. He conquered the castles of Shalriid ') In Khalkhal, and 
put their garrisons to the sword. When he had reigned 
one year, Hulagu Khan attacked him, and he, knowing the 
futihty of resistance (527), marched out from his castle of May- 
miin-i-Dizh at the end of Shawwal, A. H. 654, and surrendered. 
In the course of about a month Hulagu took and destroyed 
about fifty of the Assassins' strongholds, such as Alamut, 
Maymun-i-Dizh, Surush, Surkha-Dizak, Nira, Bahram-Dizh, 
Ahan-Kiih, Zawran, Taj, Shayharan ^), Firdaws, Mansuriyya, 
etc. Gird-Kuh [and Lammasar] alone held out for a time, 
and with their fall the power of the Persian Isma'^ilis ended. 
Alamut, their chief stronghold, was built by ad-Da^^i ila'l- 
Haqq Hasan b. Zayd al-Baqiri in the reign of al-Mutawakkil 
in A. H. 246, and thus endured in all 410 years. 

Section 10. — The Qard-Khitdy rulers of Kir7ndn. 

These were nine in number, and reigned from A. H. 621 
until A. H. 706, in all 86 years. 

(i) Burdq-i-Hdjib. 

He was one of the amirs of the Gur Khan of Qarakhitay, 
and on the conquest of Qarakhitay by Muhammad Khwa- 
razmshah, he entered the service of that king and attained 
a high rank. When Khamid-Pur ^), Khwarazmshah's governor 
of Bukhara, was killed by the Mongols (528), Buraq joined 
Sultan Ghiyathu'd-Din. He fights and kills Shuja'^ Abu'l- 
Qasim A'^war-i-Zawzani, the governor of Kirman, takes Ga- 
washir, and finally, by treacherous correspondence with the 
Mongols, Kirman also. He receives from the Mongols the 
title of Qutlugh Khan. He reigned 1 1 years, and (529) died

2) Most of the Paris MSS. have Shimiran, which is probably correct. 

3) So in the Jahdn-Gushdy. Most MSS. of the Gtizida have Hamid-Bur or -Piir 


in A. H. 632, leaving a son named Mubarak-Khwaja and 
four daughters, Sunj Turkan, who married Chaghatay Khan; 
Yaqut Turkan, who married the Atabek Qutbu'd-Dfn Mah- 
mud Shah' of Yazd ; Maryam Turkan, who married Muhyi'd- 
Dfn Amir Sam, the grandson of the Yazdi Atabek; and 
Khan Turkan, who married his nephew (her cousin) Qutbu'd- 
Din Tayangu. The latter succeeded Buraq-i-Hajib, and reigned 
over Kirman for two years. 

(2) Rukmi" d-Din Mubdrak-Khwdja b. Burdq. 

He defeated Tayangu, and was named ruler of Kirman 
by Ogotay. He reigned 16 years, and was dismissed in A. H. 
650 [MS. 605] by Manggu Khan. 

(3) Qutbu' d-Din. Tdyangu. 

Four months after his restoration he married Qutlugh 
Turkan, formerly one of the concubines of Buraq Hajib, who 
guided him with wise councils and bore him several daugh- 
ters. Ruknu'd-Din Mubarak-Khwaja again began to intrigue 
to displace his rival, and Tayangu, having got him into his 
power, put him to death with his own hands in A. H. 651. 
(530) A pretender appears and impersonates Jalalu'd-Din 
Khwarazmshah, and gathers round him many people, but 
is killed by Tayangu. Tayangu next surprises and massacres 
a number of Baluchi's (Kuch u Baluch) '), who had by their 
depredations long terrorized the countryside. Tayangu finally 
died in Ramadan, A. H. 655. 

(4) Sultdn Hajjdj b. Qutbu'd-Din. 
He was appointed by Manggu Khan to succeed his father, 
his mother, Qutlugh Turkan, acting as regent during his 
minority. She gave her daughter, Padishah Khatun, in marriage

ot Abaqa Khan, thus greatly strengthening her position, and 
reigned for 15 years. Meanwhile her son grew up, and 
quarrels arose between her and him. (531) After various 
intrigues Hajjaj, displaced in his mother's favour, retired to 
India in A. H. 666 '), and Qutlugh Turkan reigned until A. H. 
681, in which year she died at Tabriz, and was buried at 
Kirman by her daughter Blbi Turkan. 

(5) Sultan Jaldlu d-Din Siirghatmush. 

He reigned for 9 years. His wazir Fakhru'1-Mulk Mahmud 
b. Shamsu'd-Din Muhammad Shah Zawzani prevented him 
from continuing on good terms with his sister Padishah Khatun 
(532), in revenge for which she afterwards killed him. She 
also caused her brother Jalalu'd-Din to be strangled on 
Ramadan 27. A. H. 693, and gave it out that he had com- 
mitted suicide. 

(6) Padishah Khatun, daughter of Qutbu'd-Din. 

She had been married "in the Mongol fashion" to Gay- 
khatu, who, when he came to the throne, conferred on her 
the sovereignty of Kirman. Her verses (specimen cited). (533) 
She is put to death in A. H. 694 [MS. 664). 

(7) Muzaffarti d-Din Muhammad Shah b. Hajjaj. 

He succeeded by command of Ghazan Khan in A. H. 695, 
with the Qadi Fakhru'd-Din Hirawi as his wazir. The latter 
is murdered in consequence of his tyranny, and Kirman 
revolts. It is besieged for a year and a half, at the command 
of Ghazan Khan, by the Amfrs of ^Iraq" and Fars. (534) The 
Amirs suggest to Ghazan Khan that he should send Sultan 
Muhammad Shah, who was in attendance on him, to receive 
the submission of the city. (535) He died of drink, after a 
reign of 8 years, in A. H. 703. 

I) A. H. 669 in most MSS. 

134 CHAPTER IV, SECTIONS 10 — 11. 

(8) Qutbu'd-Din Shdh-Jahdn b. Surghatmush. 

He succeeded his cousin, and reigned a little more than 
two years and a half. On account of his tyrannies and pecu- 
lations he was summoned by Uljaytu to his court, and not 
permitted to return, Mahk Nasiru'd-Din Muhammad b. Burhan 
being sent to replace him at Kirman. Qutbu'd-Din finally 
died in retirement at Shfraz, and was buried at Kirman. 

Section ii. — The Atdbeks of Luristdn. 

Account of the Zubdatut-Tawdrikh as to the derivation 
of the word Lur. (Three explanations given, all very feeble). 
(536) Another legend as to the semi-diabolic origin of the 
Lurs in the time of Solomon, the same legend being also 
told of the Gilakis. Another legend makes the Lurs of semi- 
Arabian descent. Evidences afforded by their language. (537) 
Ten Arabic letters (^^ ^^ da, (]i ^c. cc, iv_i ^^ (_.(^) 

said not to occur in the Luri dialect. The Lurs are divided 
into two branches. 

(i) Lur-i-Buzurg (Greater Lurs). 

The division of the Lurs into "greater" and "lesser" is 
said to date from about A. H. 300, when a certain Badr 
I'uled over Lur-i-Buzurg and his brother Mansiir over Lur-i- 
Kuchak. Badr had a long reign and was succeeded by his 
grandson Nasiru'd-Din Muhammad b. Khalil b. Badr, who 
ruled justly, aided by his wazir Muhammad b. Khurshid, At 
this time half of Luristan was in the possession of the Shuls. 
Their chief was Sayfu'd-Din Makan Riizbahanf, whose ances- 
tors had been governors of that region since Sasanian times, 
and whose descendants still hold that position. About A.H. 
500 some hundred families of Kurds emigrated from Jabalu's- 
Summaq into Luristan. Their chief was Abu'l-Hasan Fadluya, 
who had a son named '^Ali. How he is wounded by his 



enemies (538) but saved by his dog. "^Ali leaves a son named 
Muhammad, who was in the service of the Salghari Atabeks. 
He died leaving a son named Abu Tahir, who, by his cou- 
rage, rose high in Sunqur's service, subdued Luristan, and 
became an independent sovereign. He died in A. H. 555 '), 
leaving 5 sons, Hazarasp, Bahman, ^Imadu'd-Din Pahlawan, 
Nusratu'd-Din llwakiish, and Qizil. (539) Hazarasp succeeded 
his father, and ruled well and justly, so that more tribes, such as 
the '^Aqilis and Hashimis and some two dozen others, whose 
names are enumerated, migrated into the country from Jabalu's- 
Summaq and other places. These ultimately displace the Shuls, 
who are driven into Fars, while Hazarasp extends his domain 
to within four parasangs of Isfahan. His wars with the Atabek 
Tikla. (540) The title of Atabek is conferred by the Caliph 
an-Nasir on Hazarasp. On his death he is succee.ded by his 
son Tikla, who is attacked by the Atabek SaM of Fars. 
The Atabek's army, in spite of its size, is dispersed on the 
death of their leader Jamalu'd-Din "Umar Lalba. Three sub- 
sequent campaigns of the Salghuri Atabeks against Luristan 
are equally unfortunate. Tikla b. Hazarasp annexes portions 
of Lur-i-Kuchak. His country is invaded by the Caliph's 
generals Baha'u'd-Din Garshasf and "^Imadu'd-Din Yunus, who 
take captive his brother Qizil and confine him in the Castle 
of Lahuj (or Lamuj). (541) Tikla kills ''Imadu'd-Din and takes 
captive Baha'u'd-Din. In A. H. 655 Tikla joins Hiilagu Khan's 
attack on Baghdad, but, disgusted at the atrocities committed 
by the Mongols, withdraws to Luristan, whither he is pur- 
sued by them. (542) He finally surrenders to Hulagu on 
promise of amnesty, but is put to death at Tabriz. His body 
is conveyed to Luristan by his followers and buried. He 
was succeeded by Shamsu'd-Di'n Alp Arghun, who restored 
the prosperity of the country, and ruled 15 years. He left 
two sons, of whom Yusufshah was nominated ruler of Lu-

ristan by Abaqa Khan, (543) who held him in high favour 
on account of his valour in the campaign against Gllan. 
On the accession of Ahmad [Takudar] and his quarrel with 
Arghun, Yusufshah marched with 2000 horse and 10,000 
foot to the help of the former. On his defeat in Khurasan 
these Lurs retreated through the desert of Tabas towards 
Natanz, but many of them perished of thirst. Arghun sent 
Yusufshah to seek out Shamsu'd-Din the Sdhib-Diwdn, 
[who, on Ahmad's defeat, had fled to Qum and Isfahan] 
and bring him to his court, and Shamsu'd-Din gave him 
his daughter in marriage. Later, when Shamsu'd-Dfn was 
put to death, Yusufshah returned to Luristan, where he 
shortly afterwards died (544) in A. H. 680 '), leaving two sons, 
Afrasiyab and Ahmad, of whom the former succeeded to 
the position of Atabek of Luristan. He ruled tyrannically, 
fined and otherwise maltreated Nizamu'd-Dln, Jalalu'd-Dfn 
and Sadru'd-Dfn, who had faithfully served his predecessors 
as wazirs, and ruined their family, some members of which 
took refuge at Isfahan. Death of Arghun. Baydii, the Mongol 
governor of Isfahan, is killed by Qizil, Salgharshah and 
others, who thereupon seized Isfahan in the name of Afra- 
siyab. The Lurs extend, their domains and inflict a defeat 
on the Mongols (545), who, however, returned to defeat and 
destroy them. In this battle one Mongol women is said to 
have killed ten Lurs. Afrasiyab was ultimately pardoned by 
Arghiin's successor. Gay Khatii, and confirmed in the go- 
vernment of Luristan, in which position, notwithstanding 
his tyranny towards his subjects, including his relations (546), 
he was confirmed by Ghazan Khan, who, however, after- 
wards caused him to be put to death, and appointed his 
brother Nusratu'd-Din Ahmad to succeed him. This prince 
ruled well and wisely, sought to repair the mischief done

says the author, has been scrupulously observed since his 
accession until the time of writing, a period of 35 years, so 
that Luristan became "the envy of Paradise" (547). 

(2) Lur-i-Kuchuk (Lesser Lurs). 

Account of the inhabitants of Luristan, both those who 
were and those who were not originally Lurs, and enume- 
ration of their tribes. Until A. H. 550 these had no prince 
of their own, but were subject to the Caliph and his gover- 
nors of Persian ''Iraq. At this date, Husamu'd-Dfn Suhili, 
one of the Aq-sari Turks, a follower of the Seljuqs, was 
governor of Luristan and part of Khuzistan. (548) Shuja'^u'd- 
Din Khurshid b. Abi Bakr b, Muhammad b. Khurshfd was 
the first independent ruler of Lur-i-Kuchuk. He had two 
sons, Badr and Haydar, of whom the latter was killed during 
the siege of Dizh-i-Siyah ("the Black Fortress"). The other, 
Badr, and his cousin Sayfu'd-Din Rustam, made war on the 
Turkish ruler of Bayat '),, overcame him, and took his country. 
Sayfu'd-Din treacherously compassed the death of Badr, who 
left four Sons, Husamu'd-Din Khalil, Badru'd-Din Mas'^ud, 
Sharafu'd-Din Tahamtan and Amir "^Ali. Shuja'^u'd-Din died 
in A. H. 621 at the age of a hundred. His tomb was regarded 
as holy by the Lurs on account of his justice. He was suc- 
ceeded (550) by Sayfu'd-Din Rustam, who ruled justly and 
suppressed highway robbery with a strong hand, but was finally 
killed by "^Ali, a son of the murdered Badr. (551) His brother, 
Sharafu'd-Din Abu Bakr succeeded him, and he in turn 
was succeeded by his brother "^Izzu'd-Din Garshasf, who was 
speedily deposed (55^) by Husamu'd-Din Khali'I, and, a year 
later, murdered by him. War ensues between Husamu'd-Din 
and Shihabu'd-Din Sulaymanshah, the brother of '^Izzu'd- 
Din's widow and the guardian of his infant children. So

fierce was the feud that in one month 31 battles were fought 
between them. Sulaymanshah was at length defeated and 
retired into Kurdistan, but after some years returned with 
60,000 horse and 9000 foot (553) and defeated and slew 
Husamu'd-Din Khalfl in the plain of Shapiir-khwast. His body 
was burned and his head sent to Sulaymanshah, who expressed 
regret at his death and composed a quatrain on his fate. 
This happened in A. H. 640. He was succeeded by his bro- 
ther Badru'd-Din Mas'^iid, who appealed for help to the 
Mongols, representing Sulaymanshah as the protege of the 
Caliph. He was therefore permitted to accompany Hulagii 
Khan's expedition, and was present at the sack of Baghdad, 
after which he begged that Sulaymanshah might be surren- 
dered to him. Sulaymanshah was killed, and his family were 
given to Badru'd-Din Mas'^ud, who took them with him to 
Luristan, and gave them the choice of remaining there or 
of returning to Baghdad. {554) Most of them remained in 
Luristan and married and settled down there. Badru'd- 
Din Mas'^iid died in A. H. 658. His justice and piety. His 
sons, Jalalu'd-Din ') Badr and Nasiru'd-Din "^Umar, dispute 
with Taju'd-Din Shah, the son of Husamu'd-Din Khali'l, for 
the crown. They appeal to the Mongol Abaqa Khan, who 
decides in favour of the last-named, and puts the others to 
death. Taju'd-Din reigned 17 years, and was finally put to 
death by Abaqa Khan in A. H. ^Jj. The power then passed 
into the hands of Badru'd-Din Mas*^ud's two sons Falaku'd- 
Din Hasan and "^Izzu'd-Din ^usayn, who reigned jointly for 
15 years and extended their authority over Nihawand, Ha- 
madan, Shushtar and Isfahan, and other neighbouring places. 
(555) ^^^^ ^^^ brothers acted always in concert, and had an 
army .of 17,000 men. Both died in the reign of Gaykhatii in 
A. H. 692. They were succeeded by Jamalu'd-Dfn Khidr, son 
of Taju'd-Dfn Shah, who was killed by rival competitors

for the throne in A. H. 693 near Khurramabad. With him 
the family of Husamu'd-Din Khah'l came to an end. He was 
succeeded by Husamu'd-Din "^Umar Beg, who (556) was 
speedily deposed in favour of Samsamu'd-Din Mahmud, who 
was put to death by command of Ghazan Khan in A. H. 
695. He was succeeded by ^Izzu'd-Din [Ahmad, the son of 
Amir] ') Muhammad, the son of '^Izzu'd-Din Husayn, the son of 
Badru'd-Din Mas^ud, the son of Shuja\i'd-Din Khurshid, who 
was still but a child; and the effective power passed to a 
large extent into the hands of (557) Badru'd-Din Mas'^ud ^), 
and, after "^Izzu'd-Din's death, into those of his widow Dawlat 
Khatun. Thenceforward the power of the dynasty gradually 
waned and the country passed more and more under the 
control of Mongol governors. Characteristics of the country 
of Luristan. Mineral wealth. Fauna and flora. Rivers and 
principal towns.

their joint authority over the neighbouring tribes, but after- 
wards quarrelled, and engaged in a strife which left Chingfz

(= November, 1295), and, aided by Amfr Nawruz, devoted 
himself to the restoration of Islam in Persia, the destruction 
of the idol-temples, and the conversion of his heathen com- 
patriots. (592) Several rebellious Mongol nobles are slain or 
reduced to submission. Jamalu'd-Din Dastgardani is again made

by Sadru'd-Dfn Ahmad-i-Khalid{, who checks the evil prac- 
tices which have grown up in connection with the demands 
for horses, fodder and the like made by the innumerable 
ileitis or king's messengers. (593) Ghazan Khan suspects the 
Amir Nawruz of treasonable correspondence with the Sultan 
of Egypt, and first kills his brothers and sons, and finally, 
after a struggle in which he is assisted by Malik Fakhru'd- 
Din Kart, captures Nawruz himself near Herat and puts him

torious, the second in which no resistance was met with, 
and the third, in A. H. 702, in which Ghazan's troops were 
utterly defeated. Ghazan was ill when this evil news arrived, 
and his illness was aggravated by the rebellion of Prince 
Alafrank, the son of Gaykhatu, (595) and proved fatal on 
Shawwal 10, A. H. 703 (= May 16, 1304). He died at Qazwfn, 
after a reign of eight years, at the age of 30, and was buried 
at Tabriz, being the first of the Mongol kings whose place 
of burial was known to the public. In his reign was insti- 



tuted the new era (still current in the author's time) known 
as the Ta'rikh-i-Khdni, which took as its starting-point 
Rajab 12, A. H. 701 (= March 13, 1302). 

(13) Uljdytu [Khudd-banda Muhammad) b. Arghiin. 

He was in Khurasan when the news of his brother's death 
arrived. He was crowned at Tabriz on Dhu'l-Hijja 15, A. H. 
703 (= July 19, 1304), being then 23 years of age. (He was 
born on Dhu'l-Hijja 12, A. H. 680 = March 24, 1282). His 
reign was the most happy and prosperous of all the Mongol 
sovereigns. He repressed unbelief, and imposed the jizya 
(poll-tax) on Jews and Christians, besides compelling them to 
wear di'stinctive garments. (596) Birth of his son Abu Sa'^id 
on Wednesday, Dhu'1-QaMa 8, A. H. 704 (May 29, 1305). In 
A. H. 705 Sayyid Taju'd-Din Gur-surkhi, the agent of Amfr 
Hurqiidaq, was guilty of seditious actions, and was put 
to death on Shawwal 20 (= May 5, 1306). In the same 
year certain rebellious Mongol princes and the Amirs of 
Egypt and Syria submitted. In A. H. 706 Gflan was sub- 
dued, and a tax imposed on its silk. In this war Amir

and other amirs of Syria in that year. In A. H. 710 differ- 
ences arose between the ministers Rashfdu'd-Dfn and Sa^du'd- 
Di'n, and, suspicion of a conspiracy being cast on the latter, 
he was put to death on Shawwal 10, A. H. 711 (= Feb. 19, 
1 312) at Baghxdad with Amfr Nasiru'd-Dfn Yahya, Khwaja 
Zaynu'd-Dfn, Khwaja Shihabu'd-Dfn Mubarakshah, and others. 
Verses by the author on this event. On Dhu'l-Hijja 3 of 
the same year Sayyid Taju'd-Dfn Awjf, a prominent Shf^ite, 


was put to death, and Sayyid 'Imadu'd-Din ^Ala'u'1-Mulk 
was blinded, and (598) Khwaja Taju'd-Dln of Tabrfz was 
made wazir, on condition that he should obey Rashfdu'd- 
Din, by whom the author was placed in charge of the dis- 
trict comprising Qazwfn, Abhar, Zanjan and Tarimayn. In 
Shawwal, A. H. 712 (= February, 13 13) Uljaytu marchdd into 
Syria, and reduced the fortress of Rahba. Some of the 
Mongol princes invaded and ravaged Khurasan, and Uljaytu 
sent the Amir Shaykh ''AH Qushji to avenge this insult. He 
crossed the Oxus and ravaged Tirmidh and Transoxiana, 
and Prince Abu Sa^'d was appointed governor of Khurasan, 
with Amir Sunuj as his lieutenant. (599) In A, H. 715 (= 
A. D. 13 1 5 — 6) a quarrel arose between the ministers Ra- 
shfdu'd-Dfn and Taju'd-Din ''Alfshah, to whom Uljaytu gave 
joint powers. In the following year (A.-H. 716), on Shawwal i 
(= Dec. 17, 1 3 16), Uljaytu died at Sultaniyya, after a reign 
of 12 years and 9 months, being then not quite forty years 
of age. Verses by the author on his death. A curious (600) 
ghost-story, attested by many persons, describing how the 
spirit of a certain Qara-Bahadur, who fell in battle with the 
heathen, spoke first to his family and afterwards to all the 
people of his town (Yangi Shahr), first from a corner of his 
house, and then from a stick set up in the market-place. 
The spirit-voice is described as like a voice issuing from a 
jar. (601) After three days it ceased entirely. 

(14) Abu Sa^id Bahadur Khan b, Uljaytu. 

On receiving news of his father's death, Abu Sa'^id at once 
left Khurasan, which was immediately seized by Prince 
Yusur and Amfr Begtut. Abu Sa'^fd was crowned in Safar, 
A. 11,717 (= April — May, 1317), being then 12 years of age, 
and Amfr Chuban at first acted as regent. Fines imposed 
on Amfr Tuqmaq and Qutlughsh.ih Khatun. (602) Amfr 
Chuban sends an expedition against Prince Yusur and Amfr 


Begtiit in Khurasan, and brings them to submission. Renewed 
quarrels between the ministers Rashidu'd-Din and "AHshah. 
As a result of intrigues the former was dismissed from his 
post and sent to Tabriz in disgrace. (603) In the winter 
Abu Sa'^id went to Baghdad, where, on Dhu'l-QaMa 20, A. H. 
717 (= Jan. 24, 1 3 18) the Amir Suinuj died. In the spring 
Abu Sa'^id returned to Sultaniyya, while Amir Chuban went 
to hunt in Adharbayjan, taking Rashidu'd-Din with him, in 
spite of his unwillingness to leave Tabriz. The partisans of 
his rival "^Alishah succeeded in poisoning the minds of Sultan 
Abii Sa^id and the Amir Chuban against him, and finally 
on the i8th of Jumada i, A. H, 718 (= July 18, 1318) he was 
put to death, with his son "^Izzu'd-Dfn Ibrahim, near Abhar. 
(604) Overthrow of Amir Zanbiir in Ramadan of this year, 
on account of his opposition to Amir Chuban, who had made 
himself very unpopular by his severities. War between Qur- 
mishi and Chuban. (605) The latter is extricated from his 
embarrassments by Taju'd-Din "^Alishah. Further mischief 
wrought in Adharbayjan by the Amirs Iranchin and Qur- 
mishi, both of whom belonged to the Karayit tribe of the 
Mongols. Sultan Abu Sa"^id meets them in battle at Miyana 
in Rabi^ ii, A. H. 719 (== May — June, 1319), and utterly routs 
and destroys them. It was on account of the Sultan's courage 
in this battle that he received (606) the title of Bahadur. On 
Rajab 20, A. H. 719 (= Sept. 6, 13 19) Amir Chuban married 
Sati Beg, the daughter of 'Uljaytu. Death of Amir Husayn 
b. Aq-buqa in Muharram, A. H. 722 (= Jan. — Feb., 1322). 
Amir Timur-tash, son of Amfr Chuban, governor of Rum 
(Asia Minor), revolted, but was reduced to obedience by 
his father, who put to death his evil counsellors, and brought 
him to the Sultan, who shortly afterwards reinstated him. 
Death of the minister ^Alishah in Jumada ii, A. H. 724 (= 
June, 1324) at 'Ujan. He was the only minister of the Mon- 
gols who died a natural death, and was succeeded by his son 


Amir Ghiyathu'd-Din Muhammad, who was soon, however, 
displaced by Malik Nusratu'd-Din "^Adil, called Sa'in Wazir." 
(607) In A. H. 725 (= A. D. 1325) Amir Chiiban, passing 
through Gurjistan, invaded the realms of Uzbek Khan, and 
devastated them, to avenge the devastation wrought by him 
when he came to Persia. Dismissal of Sa'in Wazir from the 
position of Grand Wazir. Dimashq-Khwaja, son of Chuban, 
succeeds him. Amfr Chuban sends his eldest son Hasan against 
Zabul and Kabul to attack Tirma Shiri'n, whom he defeated. 
He then ravaged those countries, and defaced the tomb of 
Sultan Mahmud of Ghazna. To this impious act the author 
ascribes the fall of the family of Chuban which shortly 
ensued. (608) The king, alarmed at the growing power of 
this family, sought an occasion against them, and on Shaw- 
wal 5, A. H. 727 (= Aug. 24, 1327) a rumour was put about 
that Chuban had been put to death in Khurdsan, and an 
attack was made on the house of his son Dimashq-Khwaja, 
who was killed. Verses by Shamsu'd-Din of Sawa on this 
subject. Chuban, on receiving this news, put to death Sa'in 
Wazir the ex-minister in revenge at Herat, and marched on 
'^Iraq. The king hastened from Sultaniyya to meet him. W'hen 
Chuban reached Ray and the king Qazwin, many of the 
amirs who were with Chuban deserted him and joined the 
King, whereupon he fled with his women, leaving the bulk 
of his baggage. At each stage he left behind some of his 
followers, so that finally, having crossed the desert, he reached 
Herat with only 17 followers, and there sought shelter from 
Malik Ghiyathu'd-Di'n [Kart], who, in Muharram, A. H. 728 
(= Nov. — Dec, 1327), treacherously slew him, together with 
his son Jalaw Khan and several of his principal followers. 
But Ghiyathu'd-Din [Kart] did not profit by his treachery, for 
shortly afterwards both he and his son Hafiz died. Tfmiir- 
Tash, another of Chuban's sons, fled to the Sultan of 
Egypt, who, fearing his popularity, put him to death in 



Shawwal, A. H. 728 (= August, 1328), and sent his head to 
Sultan Abii Sa'^id. (610) Chuban's son Hasan and his son 
fled to Khwarazm, where they were honoured by king 
Uzbek, but soon afterwards Hasan was killed in battle, and 
his son died a natural death. Shaykh Mahmud, another of 
Chuban's sons, who was governor of Gurjistan, was taken 
prisoner by Abu Sa'^id's troops and put to death at Tabriz, 
and in short the family of Chuban was practically exter- 
minated. Thereupon Ghiyathu'd-Din Muhammad, son of the 
talented but unfortunate Rashfdu'd-Din Fadlu'llah, the author's 
master and patron, was made prime minister, jointly with 
Khwaja '^Ala'^u'd-Din Muhammad b. "^Imadu'd-Din, but six 
months later all the power was vested in him, (611) while 
his ex-coadjutor was placed in charge of the finances of the 
Empire and appointed wazir to the governor of Khurasan.

the House of Muzaffar, from the time of its rise to power 
until its destruction by Tfmur-i-Lang (Tamerlane). (615) The 
author, who composed this treatise in A. H. 823 (A. D. 1420),

(i) Amir Mubdrizu^ d-Din Muhammad. 

He was the son of al-Muzaffar, son of al-Mansiir, son of al- 
Hajj Amir Ghiyathu'd-Dfn, who was from Khwaf in Khurasan. 
His ancestors had come thither from Arabia in the time of 
the Muhammadan Conquest, and six centuries later, in the 
time of the Mongol Invasion, they retreated southwards to 
Yazd. The Hajji had three sons, Abu Bakr, Muhammad and 
Mansur. The two former were attached to the service of the 
Atabek *^Ala'u'd-Dawla ') of Yazd. When Hulagu Khan marched 
against Baghdad, the Atabek sent Abu Bakr b. al-Hajji with 
300 horsemen to assist him. After the capture of Baghdad, 
this Abu Bakr was sent with an army to the Egyptian fron- 
tier, and was killed in battle by the Arabs of Khafaja. His 
brother Muhammad succeeded him as lieutenant to the 
Atabek of Yazd, until he also died, leaving no issue. 

Mansiir b. Hdjji. 

- The third brother, Mansur, dwelt at the little town of 
Maybud near Yazd, and assisted his father during his life- 
time. He had three sons, Mubarizu'd-Din Muhammad, Zaynu'd- 
Din *^Ali, and Sharafu'd-Dfn Muzaffar. The first had one son, 
Amfr Badru'd-Din Abu Bakr, who was the father of Shah 

Sharafu'd-Din Muzaffar. 
He was the youngest of the three brothers, but the most

virtuous and talented. (617) He dreamed that the sun arose 
from the house of the Atabek '^Ala'u'd-Dawla and entered the 
collar of his robe. When he rose up, the sun broke into 
several pieces and fell from his skirt. He enquired the inter- 
pretation of this dream, and was informed that it portended 
the passing of the power from the present Atabeks to his 
family, where it would remain for as many years as the 
number of the pieces into which the sun had broken. He 
was entrusted shortly afterwards by the Atabek Yiisuf-Shah 
b. "^Ala'u'd-Dawla with the government of the Maybud district, 
and succeeded in clearing the mountains there of a band of 
brigands from Shiraz who had taken up these abode there. 
Yusuf-shah, having killed the ambassadors of Arghun, was 
obliged to flee from Yazd towards Sistan. Muzaffar accom- 
panied him, but, an attempt having been made on his life, 
he left them, and came in A. H. 685 (= A. D. 1286) to Kirman, 
where he was well received by Sultan Jalalu'd-Din Siirghit- 
mish Qara-Khitay (618). After a while he returned to Yazd, 
and soon afterwards was presented to Arghun, who employed 
him in his service. Gay-Khatu shewed him even greater 
favours. The Atabek Afrasiyab b. Yusufshah revolted in 
Luristan, and Gay-Khatu sent against him an army com- 
manded by Muzaffar, who, thanks to his influence and local 
knowledge, succeeded in pacifying the Atabek Afrasiyab and 
bringing him back to his allegiance. After the death of Gay- 
Khatu, in Rabf i, A. H. 694 (= Jan.— Feb. A. D. 1295), Mu- 
zaffar repaired to Ghazan's camp, received all the insignia of 
authority, and was appointed Amir-Hazdra, or chief of a thou- 
sand men. (619) In the middle of Jumada ii, A. H. 700 (= end 
of February, A. D. 1301) the Amfr Mubarizu'd-Din Muham- 
mad was born. On the death of Ghazan and accession of 
Uljaytu in A. H. 703 (= A. D. 1303 — 4), Muzaffar was assigned, 
in addition to the district of Maybud, the care of the 
roads from Ardistan to Kirmanshah and from Herat and 


Merv ') to Abarquh. He also accompanied the Sultan on his 
campaign against Gilan. At this time the wazir Rashi'du'd-Din 
had a grudge against Muzaffar, but his deputy, Sayyid Jalalu'd- 
Din Kashi, succeeded in effecting a reconciliation. In A. H. 
707 (= A. D. 1307 — 8) Muzaffar was sent to Yazd and Shfraz, 
accompanied by his son Mubarizu'd-Din Muhammad. In 
A. H. 71 1 (•= A. D. 131 1 — 12) when Uljaytu marched to Bagh- 
dad, Muzaffar met him at Khaniqin. A little later he was 
charged with the duty of subduing the rebellious Shaban- 
kara. (620) Shortly after this he fell ill, and, though he 
rallied after three months, he had a relapse (caused, as was 
supposed by poison administered by his enemies) and died 
on Dhu'1-QaMa 13, A. H. 713 (== March i, 13 14). His body was 
conveyed to Maybud and buried in a college which he had 
erected and endowed. He left one son (Mubarizu'd-Din Mu- 
hammad) and three daughters ^). His younger daughter was 
married to his nephew Badru'd-Dfn Abu Bakr, to whom she 
bore Shah Sultan. One of his daughters was the mother of 
Sultan Ahmad's wife, while the other was the mother of 
Amir Ghiyathu'd-Din Muhammad b. Qutbu'd-Dln Sulayman- 
shah b. Mahmud b. Kamal. 

Mubdrizu'd-Din Muhammad. 

He was only thirteen years of age on the death of his 
father Muzaffar. He was brave, orthodox, and a patron of 
learning, but cruel, bloodthirsty and treacherous. (621) He 
is despoiled by his rivals. Sharp fight with the Nikudarfs, 
in which his sister and other women take part. He is con- 
firmed in his father's offices by Uljaytu, with whom he 
remains for four years. At the beginning of Shawwal, A. H.

716 (= Dec. 17, 1316) Uljaytii died, and was succeeded by 
, his son Abu Sa'id. In A. H. 717 (= A. D. 13 17 — 8) Mubarizu 
'd-Din returned to Maybud. (622) Sayyid ''Adudu'd-Dln Yazdi 
repelled. Amir Kay-Khusraw b. Mahmud Shah Inju '), a 
descendant of Khwaja ""Abdu'llah Ansarf, whose family had 
for years ruled the southern coast of Persia, came to Yazd 
at this juncture, and, propitiated by the gift of a horse, 
made great friends with Mubarizu'd-Din. The Atabek Hajji 
Shah, the last of the Atabeks of Yazd, had a quarrel with 
the lieutenant of Amir Kaykhusraw and killed him. There- 
upon Sultan Abii Sa'^i'd ordered (623) Mubarizu'd-Din and Kay- 
Khusraw to attack Hajji Shah, who, after a great battle, was 
completely crushed. In Shawwal, A. H. 718 (= Dec, 13 18) Mu- 
barizu'd-Dfn visited the court and was confirmed in his govern- 
ments. Soon afterwards the Slstanis, known as Nikudarls, led by 
a certain Nawruz, revolted. Mubarizu'd-Din, then only 18 years 
of age, attacked them with only 60 horsemen. A fierce conflict 
ensued (624), in which Mubarizu'd-Din was victorious, and 
pursued the Nikudaris as far as Bafq, killing many of them, 
including Nawruz. The captives and heads of the slain were 
sent to the Sultan's court, and there was wailing and lamen- 
tation in every household of the Nikudaris, who, however, 
long continued the struggle, so that it required 13 or 14 
years fighting and some 21 battles to reduce them finally 
to submission. 

Birth of Shah Muzaffar. 

(625) Shah Sharafu'd-Di'n Muzaffar was born in A. H. 725 
(= A. D. 1325). He was brave, pious and virtuous. His mother 
died while he was still young, and was buried at Kirman in

firmed by the Jahdn-drd (Brit. Mus., Or. 141, f. i67«). 'Injii is a Mongol word 
denoting Crown lands or Royal estates, and was given to this family as a title 
because to them was entrusted the charge of these lands. 


the college of Jamal-i-'^Umarf which his father had built. In 
A. H. 729 (~ A. D. 1328 — 9) Amir Mubarizu'd-Dfn Muhammad 
went to Kirman to marry Qutlugh Khan, the daughter of 
Sultan Qutbu'd-Dln Shah Jahan b. Sultan Jalalu'd-Din Sur- 
ghitmish b. Sultan Qutbu'd-Din Muhammad b. Amfr Husamu 
'd-Dfn Khamitbiir ') Tayangu b. Gulduz-i-Qara-Khita'f. It 
happened that she had gone with her father to Shfraz, and 
thither Mubarizu'd-Dfn followed her. His suit was successful, 
and his bride followed him to Yazd, and he met her at 
Abarquh. Khwaja Baha'u'd-Dfn b. "^Izzu'd-Din was at this 
time wazir. 

Birth of Shah Shujc^. 

Jalalu'd-Dln Shah Shuja*^ was born on Wednesday, 22 Ju- 
mada ii, A.-H. jn (= March 10, 1333). (626) In A. H. 734 
(= A. D. 1333 — 4) Amfr Muhammad again visited the Camp 
of Sultan Abu Sa'^fd, accompanied by his son Shah MuzafTar, 
and received from the Sultan the most notable marks of 
favour. Ther(?after Mubarizu'd-Dfn visited the Shrine of ''Alf 
b. Abi Talib. 

Death of Sultan Abu Sa^id. 

On the death of Abii Sa'^id in A. H. 736 (= 1335 — 6), chaos 
ensued (627), and pretenders to the throne arose on all sides. 
The wazir, Ghiyathu'd-Dfn Muhammad b. Rashfdu'd-Dfn 
placed Arpa on the throne, but Amfr ""Alf Pasha ^), the maternal 
uncle of the late Sultan, disapproved of this choice, attacked 
Tabrfz, routed Arpa's troops, and put him and the wazir 
Ghiyathu'd-Dfn to death. In Jumada i, A. H. 737 (= Dec. 
1336) Shah Qutbu'd-Din Mahmiid was born. 

1) In the yahdn-gushd this person is repeatedly mentioned under the name 
of «KhamidbUr". This MS. of the Guzida has "Khamftar", probably for «Kha- 
mftbiir, a variant of the other form. 

2) This, as Mfrzd Muhammad points out, seems to be the earliest recorded 
use of the title of Pdshd. That it was borne by this Amir "^Ali is confirmed 
by Ibn Taghri-bardf and the Jahdn-drd. 


The Amir Abu Ishdq Shaykh goes to Yazd. 

Shiraz was ruled by the sons of Mahmud Shah [Injii] (628), 
of whom the eldest, Amfr Jalalu'd-Dfn Mas^ud Shah, was 
supreme. His youngest brother Jamalu'd-Dfn Shaykh Abu 
Ishaq ') went to Yazd, and was met at a distance of one 
parasang from that city by Amir Mubarizu'd-Dfn Muhammad. 
Thence he went to Kirman, where he raised an army and 
returned to Yazd, which he endeavoured, but failed, to 
capture by stratagem. (629) At the intercession of Shaykh 
Shihabu'd-Din "^Ali Ba "^Imran he retired. 

The -Repentance of Amir Mubdrizu'' d-Din Muhammad. 

In A. H. 740 (:= A. D. 1 339 — 40) Mubarizu'd-Din b. Muzaffar, 
being then forty years of age, adopted the life of a devotee. 

Amir Pir Husayn comes to Pars. 

Mubarizu'd-Dfn's devout life was interrupted by a sum- 
mons to join Amfr Pfr Husayn, who was marching on Shiraz. 
After some hesitation he consented, and the two met at 
Istakhr. On hearing this, Amir MasMd Shah b. Mahmud Shah 
[Inju], the governor of Shiraz, escaped to Kazarun, whither 
he was pursued by Mubarizu'd-Din. (630), who, having put 
him to flight, returned to lay siege to Shiraz. After a fierce 
sortie, the defenders were reduced to great straits, and 
finally capitulated to Amfr Pfr Husayn, who conferred on 
Mubarizu'd-Dfn the government of Kirman. Thither he pro- 
ceeded in the same year (A. H. 740), and took possession of 
that city without encountering any resistance from its ruler, 
Malik Qutbu'd-Dfn b. Nasiru'd-Dfn Muhammad b. Burhan, 
who with his father, had ruled there for 35 years. (631) 
Mubarizu'd-Dfn disbanded his army and sent for Shah Shuja% 
who arrived a few days later. 

i) Many of the poems of Hafiz are in praise of this prince. 


The army of Khurdsdn marches on Kirmdn. 

On the loss of Kirman, Malik Qutbu'd-Din set out for 
Khurasan, and asked for help from the king of Herat, who 
lent him an army of Ghurfs under the command of Malik 
Da'ud. This army advanced to within four parasangs of 
Kirman before Mubarizu'd-Din was informed of its approach. 
He thereupon withdrew to Anar on the road to Yazd, and 
sent news to Amfr.Pfr Husayn. Having collected an army, 
he marched back to Kirman to attack the invaders, while 
Shah Muzaffar and Shah Sultan aided him to the utmost 
of their power (632) The Khurasanis were driven back into 
the city, while Mubarizu'd-Dfn alighted in the Mazdakan (?) 
quarter, subdued all the suburbs, and shortly afterwards 
routed the Khurasanfs. Malik Qutbu'd-Dfn again sought help 
from Herat. Meanwhile Amfr Pfr Husayn arrived from Shfraz 
to help Mubarizu'd-Din, and the defenders of the city were 
hard pressed. Many notable men amongst them, such as 
Khwaja Taju'd-Din ^Iraqf, came out and made their submis- 
sion. In Jumada ii, A. H. 741 (= Nov. — Dec. 1340) the city 
capitulated, Malik Da'iid retired to Khurasan, and Mubarizu 
'd-Dln took possession of ~Kirman. In the same year was 
born Sultan "^Imadu'd-Dfn Ahmad. 

(633) Conquest of Bam. 

The strong fortress of Bam was held by Akhi Shuja^u'd- 
Dfn, who had been appointed its governor in the life-time 
of Sultan Abu Sa'^id, and who had already on several occa- 
sions fought and worsted the governors of Kirman. Muba- 
rizu'd-Dfn, anxious to put a stop to his ambitions, despat- 
ched against him Qutlugh-shah, and followed in person. A 
prolonged siege ensued, but the city was (634) finally cap- 
tured, after a siege of three or four years. Akhf Shuja'^u'd- 
Dfn was spared at the time, but was afterwards killed. 


War with the Arabs. 

Certain Arabs in Herat, Merv '), Sahn-i-Rudhan, Rafsinjan 
and Shahr-i-Babak betook themselves to robbery, and Muba- 
rizu'd-Din with his son Shah Muzaffar and his wazir Ruknu'd- 
Din Mahmud b. Rashi'd set out to attack them, and inflicted on 
them a severe defeat. (635) Birth of Shah Yahya on Sunday, 
Muharram 14, A. H. 744 (= June 8, 1343). His name was deter- 
mined by an augury drawn from the Qur'an, and the title 
of Nusratu'd-Din was conferred on him on account of the 
recent victory over the Arabs. 

Ministry of Khwdja Burhdnu'd-Din. 

This minister, who was the son of Kamalu'd-Din Abu'l- 
Ma'^ali, claimed descent from the Caliph "^Uthman. His father, 
after visiting the two Sacred Cities, came to Yazd, and there 
founded many mosques, hospitals and colleges. He died in 
A. H. 738 (= A. D. 1337 — 8). His son Burhanu'd-Din then 
went to Shiraz, and in A. H. 742 (= A. D. 1341 — 2) was chosen 
ivazir by Mubarizu'd-Din. In A. H. 752 {= A. D. 135 1—2) he 
retired, but when Fars was added to the MuzafTari domains 
in A. H. 756 (= A. D. 1355) he received the double office of 
Chief Judge and Grand Wazir. 

Account of Amir Pir Husayn and Amir Shaykh Abii Ishdq. 

(636) Attempts made by mischief-makers to sow discord 
between Amir Pir Husayn and Mubarizu'd-Dfn. In A. H. 742 
(= A. D. 1341 — 2) the government of Isfahan was given to 
Amir Shaykh Abu Ishaq, who joined Malik Ashraf [b. Timur- 
tash b. Chupan] when he marched against "^Iraq and Fars. 
Amir Pir Husayn was at Qasr-i-Zard collecting troops and 
munitions of war (637). He set out with a large army for 

i) See supra^ p. 154, ad calc. It is probable that "Herat" also is a mistake, 
and that both the places here referred to, like those following, were in the 
Kirman district. 


Isfahan, but was deserted by the Qadi Shamsu'd-Dfn Sa'in 
and Amfr Jalalu'd-Din Tayyibshah, the commander of the 
Turkman army, who deserted to Malik Ashraf. Amir Muzaf- 
faru'd-Din Salghar urged him to seek help from Mubarizu 
'd-Dfn, but this his suspicions prevented him from* doing, 
and he set out that same night for Tabriz to seek help from 
his cousin, Amfr Shaykh Hasan b. Timiirtash, who, however, 
cast him into prison. Most of his captains, including Zahfru 
'd-Di'n Ibrahim-i-Sawab, thereupon joined Mubarizu'd-Di'n, 
who thus became possessed of an uncontested domain. (638) 
In Muharram, A. H. 744 (=June, 1343) a battle took place 
at Na'in between Malik Ashraf and Shah Muzaffar and 
Shah Sultan. Malik Ashraf was defeated and retired to 
Sultaniyya and Tabriz, where he collected a great army to 
invade Fars. He plundered and massacred, and in the valley 
of Shi'^b Bawwan, so celebrated for its natural beauties, he 
smoked to death some 2000 people who had taken refuge 
in a cave. (639) Malik Ashraf is recalled to Tabriz. The 
strong fortress of Sfrjan capitulates, and agrees to pay a 
yearly tribute of 100,000 dindrs. Khwaja Taju'd-Din '^Iraqf 
saves himself from death at the hands of Mubarizu'd-Din by 
a verse of poetry (640). 

Amir Shaykh Abu Ishdq goes to Kirmdn. 

On the departure of Malik Ashraf from Fars, Amfr Shaykh's 
power greatly increased, and he assumed the title of king 
and struck coins and caused the khutba to be read in his 
name. In Safar, A. H. 748 (—May — June, 1347) he marched 
on Kirman, attacking Sfrjan on the way, and destroying the 
town with some 1200 of the inhabitants, but leaving the citadel 
unreduced. On reaching Bahramjird, some 15 parasangs from 
Kirmdn, he ascertained that Mubarizu'd-Dfn was awaiting him 
with a large army, whereupon he retired to Shfraz. (641) On 
his arrival there he made Amfr Zahfru'd-Dfn Ibrahfm-i-Sawab 


his wazir, and when he was assassinated shortly afterwards 
he appointed Sayyid Ghiyathu'd-Din '^Ah' and Shamsu'd-Din 
Sa'in jointly to this post. The latter was soon conipelled by 
the jealousy of the former to retire. He went to Hurmuz 
and the coast of the Persian Gulf, collected a large following, 
raided many towns, and finally determined to attack Kir- 
man, but was defeated and slain by Mubarizu'd-Din. (642) 
On hearing this news, Amir Shaykh Abu Ishaq marched on 
Kirman to take vengeance on Mubarizu'd-Din, but was 
defeated in a great battle and retired on Shiraz by way 
of Taft. 

Account of the Hazdra. 

Mubarizu'd-Din, finding the Afghans settled in the SE. 
of Persia disobedient and disloyal, distinguished the loyal 
Jurma'is with a special badge, and ordered the Afghans to 
be extirpated. (643) Amir Dawlatshah, the chief of the latter, 
was put to death with seven other amirs. 

Defeat of Mtibdrizti' d-Din by the Afghans '). 

Soon after Mubarizu'd-Din had returned to Kirman, he 
heard (644) that the Afghans and Jurma'is had united and 
were plundering the country. Thereupon he marched against 
them, and the two forces met in the plain of Khawun (?) The 
Afghans were at first defeated, but returned while Mubarizu 
'd-Din's troops were engaged in plundering, and made a 
fresh attack, in which Mubarizu'd-Din sustained seven wounds 
and nearly lost his life. Idolatrous rites and sacrifices of 
Afghans, taken from the Mongols, enabled Mubarizu'd-Din 
to obtain from the doctors of Islam a declaration that this 
was a holy war and he a Ghdzi or champion of the faith. 

l) I am not sure whether by "Afghans" or "Awghdns" (^Vj\c.«\) the. Author 
means the people whom we know under this name, but in any case (as appears 
from pp. 643,1. 5,649, 1. 9, and especially 662,11. 12 — 13) he evidently regarded 
them and the Jurma'is as Mongol tribes. 


He returned safely to Kirman, where Shah Shuja*^ and the 
wazir Burhanu'd-Din were awaiting him. 

(645) Faithlessness of Amir Shaykh Abu Ishdq. 

Mubarizu'd-Din and Amir Shaykh Abu Ishaq had made 
a treaty, one of the objects of which was to prevent the 
Afghans from making their way to Shfraz. When, however, 
the former sent Khwaja Hajji Daylam there, the Afghans 
had already been received with honour. Abu Ishaq, feeling 
ashamed, detained them, and sent 5000 men to help Mu- 
barizu'd-Din, but they had secret instructions to desert to 
the enemy in the middle of the battle. This treachery be- 
came known to Mubarizu'd-Din, and thereupon Abu Ishaq" 
openly broke with him, and sent 2000 men under Amir 
Sultanshah Jandar to help the Afghans, while he himself set 
out for Yazd, which he entered without fighting. Shah Mu- 
zaffar being at Kirman. On hearing this. Shah Muzafifar at 
once marched to Maybud near Yazd, where his sons then 
were. He proceeded to garrison and fortify the place. Abu 
Ishaq at once sent troops against him (646) under Muham- 
madi and Zawara-i-Isfahani, but Shah Muzafifar routed them 
and took 70 of their chief men prisoners. Thereupon Abu 
Ishaq sent some 20,000 men against Maybud, but these also 
failed to capture the fortress, and peace was concluded. 

Events in Kirman. 

Meanwhile Amir Sultanshah Jandar with his Afghans ad- 
vanced on Kirman, but Mubarizu'd-Din kept them at a 
distance of four parasangs from the city. When Abu Ishaq 
returned from Maybud he sent Sayyid Sadru'd-Din to Kir- 
man to negotiate, Mubarizu'd-Dfn complained of (647) Abu 
Ishaq's faithlessness, but promised, out of compassion for 
the people, to abandon the war and make no attempt at 



retaliation. So peace was concluded, and Sultanshah returned 
to Shiraz. 

Account of the Afgjidns and yurmcCis. 

Finding no party willing to support them, the Afghans 
submitted, and in one day received 1000 robes of honour, 
while some of their amirs attached themselves to the Court 
at Kirman. At this juncture Muhammad Beg, son-in-law of 
Malik Ashraf, marched against *^Iraq, and asked help from 
Mubarizu'd-Din, who set but to follow them when they had 
nearly reached Isfahan, accompanied by some of the Afghans. 
Treacherous intentions becoming apparent on their part, 
Mubarizu'd-Din slew a great number of those who had accom- 
panied him, and of those who were at Kirman. Amir Timur, 
one of the bravest captains of Abu Ishaq, was also put to 
death on suspicion of treachery (648). 

Campaign in the Garm-sir. 

Winter being now near at hand, Mubarizu'd-Din and his 
son Shah Shuja^ who was then 16 years of age, set out for 
Jiraft. On arriving there, they found the Afghans holding 
the Qara-i-Sulaymani. Abu Ishaq again violated his promise 
and allowed the Afghans at Shiraz to march thither with 
Amir Sultanshah Jandar, to collect the taxes from Mukran, 
Hurmuz, etc. On arriving near Mubarizu'd-Din's camp a 
message reached them from Abu Ishaq that he was sending 
six regiments to reinforce them, and that they should pro- 
ceed to Kitman. Amir Sultanshah communicated this letter 
to Mubarizu'd-Din. (649) This was the seventh time that 
Abu Ishaq had violated his promises. Desultory fighting and 
raiding went on until the spring came and the weather grew 
hot, when Mubarizu'd-Din returned to Kirman, whither he 
was followed by Sultanshah, on whom he conferred many 
favours. As summer advanced they withdrew into the cooler 


region. Then the Mongol ') officers came and made their sub- 
mission, and returned to Kirman. The Nawruzis, another 
tribe of Mongols '), had always been loyal and peaceable, 
and so secured their safety. In A. H. 752 (= A. D. 135 1 — 2) 
(650) a mosque was built outside the Zarand gate of the 
old city of Kirman, and Mawlana *^Afifu'd-Din, son of Mu- 
hammad-i-Ya'^qub, was invited to come from Yazd and open 
it. Other buildings were erected with money derived from 
Mubarizu'd-Din's estates at Maybud, and in A. H. 755 (= 
A. D.I 3 54) MuS'nu'd-Din Yazdi, the author of the original 
of this chronicle, was appointed professor in one of these 
colleges named the Ddru's-Siyddat. 

Ministry of Qiivdmu'd-Din. 

In A. H. 750 (= A. D. 1349 — 50) Qiwamu'd-Din Muhammad 
became wazir to Shah Shuja^ In A. H. 755 (= A. D. 1354) 
he was made viceroy. Next year he was Qaim-Maqdni of 
Kirman, and acted as adviser and instructor to Shah Shuja^ 

Abii Ishdq again marches on Yazd. 

In A. H. 751 (=A, D. 1350 — 1) Abu Ishaq, with a great 
army, laid siege to Yazd, whither Shah Muzafifar brought 
his sons from Maybud. (651) A battle takes place, in which 
several of Abu Ishaq's officers are killed. A siege follows, 
but finally Abii Ishaq has to retire to Shi'raz. Grievous 
famine ensues in Yazd, and many die. 

Conquest of Amir Beg Jakdz. 

When Amfr Beg Jakaz deserted the cause of Malik Ashraf, he 
came to Abu Ishaq and was made commander of his army. 
After the retreat of Abu Ishaq from Yazd, he was sent with 
Amir Kayqubad b. Kay-Khusraw in command of an army 

l) /. e. the Awghdns or Afghdns, whom the author regards as a tribe of 
Mongols. See supra^ p. 161, ad calc. 



against Kirman. Mubarizu'd-Dfn, on hearing this, made a 
treaty for mutual defence with the Afghans and Jurma'is 
(652), for each side had lost some 800 men in the recent 
wars, and so reconciliation was possible without dishonour. 
He also summoned Shah Shuja*^ from Kirman and Shah 
Muzafifar from Yazd, and they foregathered at Rafsinjan. 
Mubarizu'd-Din and Amfr Beg Jakaz met at Panj Angusht 
in Jumada i, A. H. 753 (= June — July, 1352), and, after a fierce 
battle, Amfr Beg's force was utterly routed and retired to 
Shiraz, while rich spoils fell into the hands of the victors, 
including a harp encrusted with jewels belonging to the Amir 
Kayqubad, the price of which enabled Mubarizu'd-Din to 
equip and train 70 horsemen. 

(653) Conquest of Shird-z by Mubdrizu' d-Din. 

Mubarizu^d-Din now decided to march on Shiraz, and first 
moved to Bam, where he received from Murtada A^zam 
Shamsu'd-Din ^Ali of Bam a sacred relic to which his future 
good fortune is ascribed, namely a hair of the Prophet, 
which was afterwards deposited in the DdriCs-Siyddat of 
Kirman. (654) Mubarizu'd-Din then proceeded to Riqan, where 
he nominated Jalalu'd-Din Shah Shuja'^ his successor. Abu 
Ishaq, hearing of the approaching attack, consulted the nobles 
and 'ulamd. One of the latter, "^Adudu'd-Din ^Abdu'r- Rahman 
al-'Iji advised him to make peace, and, his advice being accep- 
ted, he set out to seek Mubarizu'd-Din. At Sirjan he met Shah 
Muzafifar, who was coming from Yazd, and they proceeded toge- 
ther, coming up with Mubarizu'd-Din in the plain of Arzuya(?) 
and Dasht-bard. Mubarizu'd-Din received al-'Iji very graci- 
ously and assigned him an allowance of 50,000 dindrs and 
10,000 for his attendants. He also read Ibn Hajib's Commentary 
on the Mufassal with Shah Shuja^ He also tried to dissuade 
Mubarizu'd-Din from continuing his march on Shiraz, but the 
latter declined, on the ground that Amir Shaykh Abu Ishaq 


had already violated his promises eight times, and proceeded 
to Furg and Tarim, while al-ljf went by way of Nayriz to 
Shabankara. (655) Mubarizu'd-Din reached Fars in Safar, 
A. H. 754 (= March, 1353), and Abu Ishaq advanced to meet 
him with an army, but fell back next day on Shiraz, whither 
he was followed by Mubarizu'd-Din. 

Capture of the Castle of Sarband. 

Majdu'd-Din of Sarband surrendered his castle, and was 
confirmed in the Wardenship of it and of Khafrak, but soon 
rebelled, whereupon Mubarizu'd-Din, accompanied by his 
son Shah Shuj^S attacked and subdued it. Majdu'd-Dfn and 
his elder son went to Shiraz, while his younger son and his 
followers were captured and put to death. He then returned 
to lay siege to Shiraz but fell ill for a time, while Shah Muzaffar 
was also taken seriously ill, and (656), notwithstanding all that 
the physicians could do, died in Jumada ii, A. H. 754 (= July, 
1353) ^f^d was buried at Maybud in the Muzaffariyya Col- 
lege. He was 28 years and a half in age when he died, and 
left four sons. Shah Yahya, Shah Mansur, Shah Husayn and 
Shah '^Ali, and two daughters. 

Capture of the Red Castle (Qal'^a-i-Surkh). 

Shortly after this. Shah Shuja*^ set out to capture the Red 
Castle situated 4 Parasangs from Shiraz, which was occupied 
by some of Abu Ishaq's troops. It was reduced, and the 
spoils were divided by Shah Shuja*^ amongst his troops. 
Meanwhile Mubarizu'd-Din, in spite of his illness, continued 
to prosecute the siege of Shiraz. On Friday, 6th of Rabi*^ i, 
A. H. 754 (= April II, 1353) Hajji Qiwamu'd-Din Hasan, one 
of the chief men of Fars (657), died, to the great grief of 
Abii Ishaq '). His son narrates to the author of this history 

i) Hdfiz has a qifa on this event, giving the date as above, except that 
the month is given as Rabi' ii, not Rabi' i. See Rosenzweig-Schwannau's 
edition of the Diwdn^ vol. iii, p. 304. 



how he went, on the third day after Qiwamu'd-Dfn's death, 
to see Abu Ishaq, who lamented the time he had spent in 
studying astrology, and the mistakes into which it had led 
him, and recited verses on its futility. (658) Abii Ishaq 
aroused the hostility of the Shirazis by putting to death 
Sayyid Amir Hajji Darrab and Hajji Shamsu'd-Din. Finally 
in the month of Ramadan [A. H. 754 =: October, 1353] Ra'fs 
■^Umar, son of ^Ala'u'd-Din, caused the Murdistan gate to be 
left open, and Mubarizu'd-Din and his troops entered the 
town on Shawwal 3 (= Nov. i, 1353), and Abu Ishaq, with 
some of his followers, fled to Shulistan, and thence to the 
White Castle {Qat'a-i-Sapid), noted since Sasanian times for 
its strength. He then demanded help from Amir Shaykh 
Hasan, governor of Baghdad, who sent his son Amir Aq- 
buqa by way of Shushtar to help him. (659) On hearing 
that Shah Shuja*^ was advancing against them, however, Aq- 
bijqa returned to Baghdad, while Abu Ishaq fled to Isfahan. 
Mubarfzu'd-Din conferred the government of Kirman on 
Shah Shuja^ and handed over to him "^Ali Sahl, the ten- 
year-old son of Abu Ishaq, Amir Beg Jakaz, and Kulu 
Fakhru'd-Din, The second was drowned in the Kirman river, 
the last was put to death at Kirman, and the child was 
murdered near Rafsinjan, though it was pretended that he 
had died a natural death. His grave is now regarded as a 
holy place, and a supernatural light is said to shine over it 
at times. (660) ') Mubarizu'd-Din's good government of Fars, 
encouragement of learning and repression of dissipation. 
Quatrain on this composed by Shah Shuja^ In A. H. 755 
(= A. D.I 3 54) Mubarizu'd-Din set out to conquer "Iraq, 
accompanied by Shah Shuja*^ and the Afghan, Arab and 
Jurma'i levies. Shah Shuja'^ left Kirman in the month of 
Rabi^ i (= April), but at Shahr-i-Babak he was deserted by 
the Afghans and Jurma'is. After he had joined his father, news

reached them that Amfr Ay-Tftnur, commander of Abu Ishaq's 
army, had gone to Shulistan, joined Amfr Ghiyathu'd-Din 
Mansiir, governor of the Shiil, and intended to seize Shiraz. 
Thereupon Shah Shuja*^ set out for Shulistan, but, finding 
no trace of them th'ere, carried off all their cattle. The rebels 
had gone to Kazariin, whence they doubled back on Shfraz 
and effected an entry by the Kazariin gate. Shah Sultan, 
Mubarizu'd-Din's governor of Shiraz (66l), was completely 
taken by surprise, and fled to Shah Shuja*^. The invaders 
set fire to the quarter of Murdistan, which was most loyal 
to Mubarizu'd-Din. Shah Shuja*^ hastened back to the town, 
which he entered by the Istakhr gate, and gallantly attacked 
the rebels. Ay-Timur was killed by an arrow, and his forces 
routed, and afterwards another force of Shiils and other 
disaffected nomads was routed by Shah Shuja'' at the Ka- 
zarun gate. {662) Complete security restored in Shiraz by 
Shah Shuja^ Verses on this '). Another attempt made by 
'Imadu'd-Din Mahmud and Amir Salgharshah, the nephew 
of Amfr Shaykh Abii Ishaq, to overthrow the Muzaffari rule 
in Fars. These collected an army at Darabjird, and invited 
the Afghan . Mongols '^) to join them. They were promptly 
attacked by Shah Shuja", who put them to flight. (663), and 
then returned to Shiraz. At this time Majdu'd-Din surren- 
dered the strong castle of Quhandiz [or FahandirJ to Shah 
Sultan, and also Amfr Shaykh Abu Ishaq's treasures, which 
were stored up there. He was pardoned by Shah Shuja*" for 
his rebelHon, and these treasures were given to him.

and besieges Isfahan.

nan J near Isfahan, the defenders of which, notwithstanding their 
numbers, refused to come out to fight him. In A. H. 75 5 (= A. D. 
1354), having sworn allegiance to the ''Abbasid Caliph al- 
Mu^tadid ') Bi'llah Abu Bakr, he restored the Caliph's name 
in the khutba (from which it had been omitted ever since 
the Mongol invasion) throughout "^Iraq, exactly 100 years 
after the sack of Baghdad by the Mongols. Tradition cited 
a propos of this. (664) Meanwhile Amir Shaykh Abu Ishaq 
was trying by every means to recover his dominions. He 
pardoned Sultanshah, whom he had held prisoner at Tabarak 
for some time, and, relying on his loyalty, sent him to rally 
the Afghans and Jurma'is ; but Sultanshah made his way to 
Luristan and thence to Shiraz, where he -joined Shah Shuja^ 
As winter drew on, the siege of Isfahan was raised, but in 
the spring the task of subduing it was entrusted by Muba- 
rizu'd-Din to Shah Shuja^ When the army had encamped 
at the gates of Isfahan, Sayyid Jalalu'd-Din Mir-Miran, go- 
vernor of that place, hid himself. (665) A few days later 
news came that Abu Ishaq, with the Atabek Nuraward b. 
Sulaymanshah b. Ahmad, had gathered an army in Luristan. 
Shah Shuja'^ decided that he must first disperse this, and so 
marched to Kandaman and thence to Firuzan. Mubarizu'd- 
Din also came hither with lightning speed. Thereupon the 
Atabek returned into Luristan, while Abu Ishaq went to 
Shushtar, Shah Shuja'^ returned to lay siege to Isfahan, and 
Mubarizu'd-Dfn encamped at Marwanan to bar the return 
of the enemy. Soon afterwards Jalalu'd-Uin Mir-Miran made 
his submission to Shah Shuja*^, who returned to Shiraz. 

l) The MS. here has wrongly "al-Muqtasid". Ibn Taghri-bardi in his Nu-

the death of the Caliph al-Hakim bi'amri'llah Abu'l-*^ Abbas Ahmad. As he 
had not nominated his successor, a meeting of the nobles and judges was 
held, and they elected Abu Bakr b. al-Mustakfi bi'llah AbiV-Rabi*^ Sulayman, 
and swore allegiance to him under the title of al-Mu*^tadid. See also as-Suyuti's 
Ta'rikhu'l-Khulafd^ Cairo ed., p. 201. 


Conquest of Shabdnkdra. 

Description of Shabankara, its strong fortress, its mills, 
its gardens, and its general prosperity. (666) Its ruler was 
at this time Malik Ardashi'r, who defied Mubarizu'd-Dfn, 
and collected an army to resist him. Mubarizu'd-Din sent 
his son Mahmud to deal with this rebellion. He subdued 
the place, and Ardashfr fled. 

Revolt and subjugation of the Hazdra-i-Shddi. 

The Hazara-i-Shadl had been well treated by Mubarizu'd- 
Din, who had given them lands in fief, but they forgot these 
favours and rebelled towards the end of A. H. 756 (= Jan- 
uary, 1355), in spite of the warnings of Amfr Mubarakshah 
(667) whom they plundered and drove away to Shfraz. 
Shah Shuja*^ marched against them, defeated them, and killed 
their leader. Amir Buqa, and many others of their chief men. 

Shdh Shujd'^ goes to Kirmdn to extirpate the Afghdns 

and JurmdHs. 
These tribes were settled in this region in the time of 
Shah Shuja'^'s great-grandfather Jalalu'd-Dfn Surghatmish to 
protect it. In course of time they waxed prosperous and 
multiplied. Sultan Shah Jahan took a wife from amongst 
them and of that union was born Qutlugh, called "the Mo- 
ther of Kings" {Uinmu' s-Saldtin. When Mubarizu'd-Dfn con- 
quered Kirman in A. H. 742 (= A. D. 1341 — 2) he (668) greatly 
honoured and strengthened this tribe. Yet nevertheless from 
time to time they rebelled, as has been mentioned. In A. H. 
754 (= A. D. 1353), when Kirman was bestowed on Shah 
Shuja^ he showed them fresh favour, yet in A. H. 755 (= A. D. 
I354)> when he set out to join his father at Shfraz, they 
revolted at Shahr-i-Babak. On hearing now that Shah Shuja*^ 
was advancing against them, they retired to the mountains, 
and, being hard pressed, again craved and obtained forgive- 


ness. Shah Shuja*^ entered Kirman on Rajab 8, A. H. 757 
(= July 7, 1356), and at this juncture his wife, the sister of 
Amir Surghatmish-i-Afghanf, and the mother of the princes 
Sultan Uways, Sjultan Shibli, and Sultan Jahangir, and of Sultan 
Padishah the wife of Shah Yahya, died. Two years earlier 
he had married another wife (669), and the marriage was 
consummated on Sha'^ban 12. Two robbers, Mahmud Timur and 
an Arab of Shahr-i-Babak, were captured and put to death. 

Shah Shuja^ again marches on Isfahan. 

At the end of Sha'^ban, Shah Shuja'^ left Kirman. On the 
2nd of Ramadan he reached Rafsinjan, and on Tuesday the 
9th he reached Yazd, where he remained three days, and 
then met his father Mubarizu'd-Din outside Na'in. A few 
days later nevys arrived that Amir Shaykh Abu Ishaq had 
collected an army of the Hazara-i-Shadf at Jarbadhaqan 
(Gulpayagan), and Mubarizu'd-Din, leaving Shah Shuja"^ there 
(670), set out to attack them, but they dispersed the day 
before his arrival, leaving many of their stores and posses- 
sions. Meanwhile Shah Shuja^ encamped at Fi'ruzan, one 
stage from Isfahan, whence he moved near to the Bagh-i- 
Karan, which adjoined the city wall. Several sorties were 
made by the inhabitants, in one of which the Amir Kay- 
Ka'iis showed great valour, and many of the Isfahanis were 
taken prisoner. Mubarizu'd-Din, leaving Shah Sultan to con- 
duct the siege, returned to Shlraz. 

Conquest of Luristdn. 

The Atabek Nur-award, whose ancestors had ruled Lu- 
ristan for generations, was from the first inclined to dispute 
Mubarizu'd-Din's supremacy, and he and his kinsman Kayu- 
marth b. Takla wished to give their support to Amir Shaykh 
Abu Ishaq. Mubarizu'd-Din was anxious, on account of family 
connections, to avoid a conflict with them, but when {671) 


Nur-award allied himself with Abii Ishaq, placed all his 
resources at his disposal, and marched on Isfahan, so that 
no doubt remained as to his hostility, Mubarizu'd-Dfn was 
very angry. He sent Nasiru'd-Din Khunji, Amir Kamalu'd- 
Dfn Husayn Rashi'di, Khwaja Ruknu'd-Din 'Amidu'1-Mulk 
and Khwaja Sadru'd-Din Anari to remonstrate with them, 
but without effect. In the year A. H. 756 (=A. D. 1355) 
when Mubarizu'd-Din encamped outside Isfahan, the Atabek 
Nur-award sent the Qadi Qutbu'd-Din, the chief judge of 
Luristan, as an ambassador to him. In Muharram, A. H. 757 
(Jan. 1356) it was decided to invade Luristan. Shah Shuja'^ 
joined his father, and the expedition started, in spite of the 
intense cold. When they reached Bahbahan, however, the 
weather turned warmer. At this juncture news arrived that 
Kayiimarth, Shaykh *^sa the Kurd, and other chiefs, were 
advancing with an army of 10,000 horse and foot. Thereupon 
Mubarizu'd-Dfn (672) prepared for battle, entrusting the right 
wing to Shah Shuja'^ and the left wing to Shah Mahmud, 
while he himself took command of the centre, in company with 
his grandson Shah Yahya. In the battle which ensued Kayii- 
marth was killed and his army defeated. Next day the sur- 
vivors, including the Atabek Shamsu'd-Din Pashang b. Sal- 
gharshah b. Ahmad b. Yusufshah b. Shamsu'd-Din Alp-Arghun 
b. Hazarasp b. Abu Tahir b. Muhammad b. *^Ali b. Abu'l- 
Hasan Fadlu'i, and ''Ala'u'd-Din "^Ata, Taju'd-Din Taki'n- 
Tash, Siraju'd-Din "^Umar Lal-pa, and the other chiefs came 
to make their submission, and were well received. On reaching 
Idaj '), the capital of Luristan, news arrived that Nur-award 
had occupied the strong fortress of Susan. Shah Shuja^ set 
out to attack him, whereupon he retreated to another fortress. 
Mubarizu'd-Din, having practically subdued Luristan, con- 
ferred the government of it on the Atabek Shamsu'd-Din 
Pashang, the cousin and son-in-law of Nur-award, whom he

soon succeeded in capturing and deprived of his eye-sight. 
Mubarizu'd-Di'n, returning homewards from Idaj, celebrated 
his victory by a great hunt in the plain of Rakhshabad (673). 

Conquest of Isfahan and capture of Shaykh Abii I shag. 

While the campaign in Luristan was in progress, Shah 
Sultan was vigorously besieging Isfahan, whither Shaykh 
Abu Ishaq had returned. Sayyid Jalalu'd-Din Mir-miran took 
part in the defence, and the siege dragged on through the 
hard winter until the spring, when many of the garrison 
came out and joined Shah Sultan's forces, to the great dis- 
couragement of Shaykh Abu Ishaq and his ally Jalalu'd-Din, 
which was presently increased by the treacherous surrender 
of the fortress of Tabarak to Shah Sultan by its warden. 
(674) Seeing the discouragement of the besieged, Sayyid 
Jalalu'd-Din, abandoning his wife and family, escaped from 
the city with one attendant and fled to Kashan. Shaykh 
Abu Ishaq, unable to get out of the city, took refuge in 
the house of Mawlana Nizamu'd-Din Asil, the Shaykhu'l- 
Islam of "^Iraq. Finally his whereabouts was discovered, and 
he was brought to the Castle of Tabarak, news of his capture 
being sent to Amir Mubarizu'd-Din, who ordered him to be 
sent to Shfraz. In the mayddn of that city he was brought 
before Mubarizu'd-Din, who was surrounded by all the '^ulamd, 
judges and nobles of Fars, and there he was put to death 
by Ariiir Qutbu'd-Dfn, the youngest son of Sayyid Amir 
Hajji Darrab, whom he had formerly slain. (675) Two qua- 
trains recited by him at his death ').

Rebellion of the Afghans and yurmdHs. 

In the year A. H. 757, when Shah Shuja' set out for Shiraz 
on his way to Luristan, he was accompanied by a number 
of amirs and soldiers of the Afghans and Jurma'is. Amir 
^Ah' MaHk, who had hitherto been loyal, was appointed to 
go to Riidbar. Soon after his arrival there he had a quarrel 
with Taqtay as to a certain pasture, as a result of which 
Taqtay was slain, and *^Ali Malik obtained possession of an 
undisputed territory. He took captive Amir "^Izzu'd-Di'n, chief 
of the Jurma'is, but could not kill his brother Shamsu'd- 
Dfn, who was in attendance on Shah Shuja^ He sent *^Izzu'd- 
Din in chains to Kirman, but on the way thither he escaped, 
unknown to his custodians, and took refuge with his tribe, 
where he gathered round him a number of men who bore 
resentment against *^Ali Malik, marched against him, and 
killed him. When news of this reached Amir Mubarizu'd-Din, 
he wished to march at once and take vengeance (676), 
but, being engaged in a campaign against Adharbayjan, he 
was compelled to postpone his intention for a year. 

The Subjugation of Tabriz. 

In Muharram, A. H. 758 (January, 1357) Mubarizu'd-Din, 
having overcome all his rivals and occupied Fars and "^Iraq, 
set out for Isfahan with a large army. Near that city he 
was met by all the notables and chiefs, who escorted him 
to the palace, where he received the homage of Shah Sultan, 
who expected, but did not receive, much favour for his ser- 
vice, for the Minister Khwaja Burhanu'd-Din had accused 
him of embezzling a sum of 700 tiimdns from the revenues 
of *^Iraq. This caused a certain estrangement, in spite of 
which Shah Sultan gave a great banquet, at which, however, 
Mubarizu'd-Din, who was violent, passionate and ill-natured, 
behaved with great rudeness. (677) This increased the en- 
mity already existing between the uncle and nephew. At 



this juncture an ambassador arrived from Janf Beg Khan b. 
Uzbeg Khan with 300 horsemen, bringing the news that the 
Khan had come to Tabriz, killed Malik Ashraf, and assumed 
supreme authority; and that he now summoned Mubarizu'd- 
Din to his presence to perform the duties of Yasdwul, or 
Marshal, incumbent on him as formerly on his father. Mubarizu 
'd-Din replied in harsh terms, and entrusted the entertain- 
ment of the ambassadors to Shah Sultan, whose anger was 
further increased by this new and unexpected burden. After 
they had departed, news arrived that Jani Beg had fallen 
sick and had returned to his own tribe [ulus], leaving Akhf 
Jiiq in Tabriz. This news decided Mubarizu'd-Din to under- 
take the conquest of Adharbayjan. Then news came by suc- 
cessive messengers that Jani Beg was dead, and had been 
succeeded by his son Bardi Beg, who had thereupon put 
his brothers to death. Mubarizu'd-Din forthwith began his 
preparations, selected 12,000 men from the armies of ^Iraq 
and Fars, and set out for Tabriz. Amir Akhi Jiiq, being 
informed of this, came out from Tabriz to meet him with 
30,000 horsemen. (678) The two armies met at Miyana. 
Mubarizu'd-Din entrusted the right wing to Shah Shuja^ the 
left to Shah Mahmud, and himself took command of the 
centre, having Shah Yahya with him. He ordered his sol- 
cfiers to fire three arrows each and then charge. Kamalu'd- 
Din Lutfu'llah, son of Sadru'd-Din '^Iraqi, produced the sword 
of Khalid b. Wali'd" "the Sword of God", and recited the 
prayer engraved upon it three times, and one of the arrows 
fired struck down the enemy's standard-bearer. Akhi Juq's 
right wing broke Mubarizu'd-Din's left wing and threatened 
to encircle his centre, but Mubarizu'd-Din and Shah Yahya 
fought with such valour that Amir Akhi Juq's army was 
completely routed, and its leaders mostly slain or taken 
captive, and Mubarizu'd-Din's sons pursued them to Nakh- 
juwan, where they feasted for three days. (679) Muba- 


rizu'd-Din was greatly incensed at this, reprimanded them, 
and honoured only Shah Yahya, who had remained with 
him and had fought with great valour. On the Friday 
he himself ascended the pulpit and deliveped a homily. 
News arrived that an army was advancing on Tabriz from 
Baghdad, and Mubarizu'd-Din decided to withdraw. On the 
march he was continually threatening punishments to his 
sons and others, and they, being alarmed, laid the matter 
before Shah Sultan, who, having already a grudge against 
Mubarizu'd-Din, incited them to seize their father, telling 
them that he certainly intended to blind them and exclude 
them from the succession in favour of his youngest and 
favourite son, whose mother was Badi*^u'l-Jamal. (680) They 
therefore agreed together on reaching Isfahan to seize and 
bind their father Mubarizu'd-Din. They arrived there on Tues- 
day in the middle of Ramadan, A. H. 759 (= Aug. 21, 1358). 
On the following Thursday at midnight Shah Sultan came 
with one attendant to Shah Shuja"s house and announced 
that he would flee, as it was said that Mubarizu'd-Din was 
acquainted with the plot, and that if so he would certainly 
kill all the conspirators. It was therefore agreed that before 
sunrise next day they should put their plans into execution. 
Shah Sultan then proceeded to Shah Mahmiid, who was in 
the bath, and gave him the same information, whereupon 
he at once mounted and came to the house of his father 
Mubarizu'd-Din, who was busy reading the Qtir'dn. Shah 
Mahmud waited outside in the porch, while Shah Shuja' and 
Shah Sultan stood at the door of the room in which Mu- 
barizu'd-Di'n was, and sent five or six men in to seize him. 
He, on seeing them, understood what was intended, and 
sought for His sword, but it was not at hand. The conspi- 
rators, therefore^ were able to seize and bind him. At the 
same time Shdh Sultan went and killed Khwaja Burhanu'd- 
Din. That night they conveyed Mubarizu'd-Din to the Castle 


of Tabarak and blinded him '). (681) Reflections of the author 
on the vicissitudes of Fortune. Mubarizu'd-Din is conveyed 
from Tabarak to Qara-i-Isfid ("the White Castle") in Fars. 
After a month or two he told the warden of the castle 
that he had not wholly lost his sight, and persuaded him 
(682) to befriend him. Finally, after much correspondence, 
an understanding was arrived at between Mubarizu'd-Din 
and his sons. The former was permitted to come to Shi'raz 
and to have with him Badi'^u'l-Jamal and his youngest son 
Sultan Bayazid, together with his body-servants, while the 
government was to be carried on in his name and with his 
approval. When he had been for two or three months at 
Shiraz, he made a plot with some of his adherents to 
seize and kill Shah Shuja'^ when he came to see him. Shah 
Shuja*^, being informed of this, ordered his accomplices to be 
put to death, and himself to be transferred to the Castle of 
Tabar in the Garmsfr, or hot region, of Fars. Then he 
fell ill, and was removed in consequence to the Castle of 
Bam, where he died at the end of Rabi'^ i, A. H. 765 (= be- 
ginning of January, 1364), at the age of 65, having reigned 
40 years, 22 years in Yazd, 13 years in Kirman, and 5 years 
over "^Iraq and Fars.

succession to the throne he bestowed Persian "^Iraq and 
Abarquh on Shah Mahmud and Kirman on Sultan Ahmad, 
and made Khwaja Qiwamu'd-Dln Muhammad his Prime Mi- 
nister. At the beginning of Muharram, A. H. 760 (= Dec. 3, 
1358) he set out for Kirman to chastise the rebelHous Af- 
ghans and Jurma'is. Thence he proceeded to Bam, Jiraft 
and (685) Manujan. He defeats the Afghans and kills a great 
number of them. The Afghans rally and again give battle, 
but after a fierce fight, in which Shah Shuja*^ himself took 
part, sue for peace. They did not, however, observe the 
truce, and permission was given to plunder their possessions. 

(686) The Afghans then got Khwaja Shamsu'd-Din Muham- 
mad to intercede for them, and by means of the Shaykhu'l- 
Islam Sadru'd-Din '^Abdu'l-'^Aziz, a descendent of Burhanu'l- 
Aqtab Shaykh Shihabu'd-Din Tiirayashti, succeeded in obtain- 
ing forgiveness from Shah Shuja*^ by promising obedience 
in the future. Shah Shuja*^ then returned to Shiraz. Shortly 
afterwards his brother Shah Mahmud rebelled against him, 
attacked and took Yazd, placed Khwaja Baha'u'd-Din Qurji 
there as governor, and himself marched to Isfahan. 

Shdh Yahyd is sent to Yazd. 

At this time Shah Yahya, Shah Muzaffar's son and Shah 
Shuja"s nephew was imprisoned in the Castle of Quhandiz 
[MS. "Fahandir"], but he succeeded, with the help of con- 
federates, in seizing the governor and taking possession 
of the castle. Shah Shuja*^ sent an army to besiege him. 

(687) Finally a truce was concluded, on condition that 
Shah Yahya should evacuate the castle and retire to Yazd, 
but, though treated with honour by Shah Shuja^ he conti- 
nued at Yazd to intrigue against him. Verses of Shah Shuja'' 
on this subject. Shah Shuja*^ marches towards Yazd, and 
sends Khwaja Qiwamu'd-Dfn Muhammad thither from Abar- 
quh, where he himself remains. A rumour is started that 



one of Qiwamu'd-Din's intimates named "^Abdu'r-Rahman 
Kunbani was intending to assassinate him, and Qiwamu'd- 
Din, without investigating the matter, immediately caused 
(688) '^Abdu'r-Rahman to be put to death. Yazd was soon 
reduced to great straits, and Shah Yahya was obHged to 
submit to his uncle Shah Shuja^ who accepted his excuses. 
Text of the fresh agreement concluded between the uncle 
and nephew. (689) Shah Shuja^ then returned to his capital, 
ordering his army to raise the siege of Yazd. Soon after- 
wards he set out for Qasr-i-Zard, because Shah Mahmud 
threatened rebellion. The wazir [Qiwamu'd-Dfn] was accused 
by his enviers of being disloyal, and was arrested, fined, 
and ultimately put to death with torture in the middle of 
Dhu'1-QaMa, A. H. 764. His place was taken by Khwaja 
Kamalu'd-Din Rashidi. 

The Conflict between Shah Shuja and Shah Mahmud. 

Shah Shuja'^ now marched on Isfahan against his brother 
Shah Mahmud, and besieged him there for one or two months. 
Daily skirmishes took place, and one day Shah Mahmud 
succeeded (690) in decoying Shah Sultan and a number of 
the besiegers into an ambush in the suburban lanes [kucha- 
bdgh-hd), and in taking Shah Sultan captive and killing 
his younger brother Amir Mubariz. Shah Sultan was blinded 
by his foes, as he had formerly blinded the late king Mu- 
barizu'd-Di'n. Quatrain by Sadru'd-Din *^Iraqi on this subject. 
After this defeat Shah Shuja"^ retired to Shiraz, and Shah 
Mahmud began to seek support and alliance from Sultan 
Uways at Tabriz. Simultaneously with MuS'nu'd-Din's second 
mission to Isfahan, Amir Mubarak-shah Aynagh came from 
Tabriz to Isfahan to endeavour to create trouble (691) and to 
induce Shah Mahmud to revolt. Reinforcements arrived from 
Tabriz led by Amir Shaykh "^Ali Aynagh, Amir Sati Bahadur, 
Mubarakshah Diili, and sundry Amirs, like Ghiyathu'd-Din 


Shul, Salghur-shah Turkman, etc., and Shah Yahya as well as 
Shah Mahmud joined them. The combined army marched out 
of Isfahan in A. H. 765 (= A. D. 1363 — 4), and Shah Shuja*^ 
advanced to meet them from Shiraz, entrusting his right wing 
to his youngest brother Sultan Ahmad, and his left wing to his 
eldest son Sultan Uways. Sultan Ahmad, angered at not 
being admitted to the Council of War held by Shah Shuja*^ 
and his amirs, deserted in the night to Shah Mahmud, and 
many of the soldiers followed his example. Shah Shuja^ 
however, undeterred by these defections, gave battle near 
Khwansar. (692) When night fell the battle was still unde- 
cided. Shah Shuja*^ fell back on Shiraz, while the opposing 
army scattered, many of the leaders retreating swiftly to 
distant places, e.g. Sayyid Humamu'd-Din to Isfahan, the 
son of Amir Shaykh "All Aynagh to Kashan, and Shah Yahya 
to Yazd, while Shah Mahmud and Amir Shaykh 'AH reached 
Isfahan by different routes, and decided to take no further 
action until they should learn what had befallen the army 
of Shah Shuja^ News reached them that Shah Shuja^ had 
retreated to Shiraz. In passing by the Band-i-Am(r he had 
confided the fortress there to one of his Amirs, who being 
inexperienced and timorous, surrendered that strong place 
to the enemy as soon as they summoned him to do so. 
Shah Shuja^ meanwhile, having remained a few days in 
Shiraz to re-equip his army, marched back to seek revenge, 
but was attacked by a pain in the foot which compelled 
him to return. Now there was a certain Dawlatshah who had 
been the faithful servant of the unfortunate Qiwamu'd-Din, 
and who had been imprisoned for a few days at the time 
of his master's execution, but was afterwards released and 
taken into favour (693). This man had been sent by Shah 
Shuja" to Kirman to bring money to Shiraz for the payment 
of the army. On reaching Si'rjan he met Sultan Shiblf and Amir 
Surghatmish, who were advancing to Shiraz with reinforce- 



ments for Shah Shuja^ and persuaded them and [Badru'd-Din] 
Hilal, Sultan Shibll's guardian [Atdbek) to return with him to 
Kirman. There he seduced many of the Amirs and nobles from 
their allegiance; put to death Amir Hajji the Master of the 
Horse {Mir-dkhur), who was governor of Kirman on behalf 
of Shah Shuja*^, and Sultan Shibli's Atdbek, Badru'd-Din 
Hilal; imprisoned Sultan Shibli in the Qara-i-Kuh; and 
assumed the supreme power. (694) When news of these 
events reached Shah Shuja*^ he was greatly discouraged, and 
at this juncture Shah Mahmud's army arrived before Shiraz 
and daily skirmishes took place. Finally Shah Shuja*^ decided 
to send his son Sultan Uways to seek Amir Surghatmish 
(who was believed to be still loyal) in the Garmsir and to 
march with him against Kirman to subdue Dawlatshah ; but 
they could effect nothing. Meanwhile the siege of Shiraz 
dragged on, until finally Shah Mahmud sent a message to 
his brother Shah Shuja"^ to say that the "foreign" Amirs 
from Baghdad prevented him from concluding any peaceful 
agreement, but that if Shah Shuja^ would retire to Abarquh 
for a while until he could induce these Amirs to disperse, 
a satisfactory agreement could be concluded, and a fair 
partition of the country effected between them. (695) Shah 
Shuja"^ consents. Text of his reply to his brother. They meet 
at the castle of Quhandiz [MS. Fahandir], and Shah Mahmud 
agrees to restore the Gastle of Sar-i-Band-i Amir to Shah Shuja*^, 
so that he could go that way to Abarquh. His wife, Khatun-i- 
*^Uzma, and youngest son. Sultan Zaynu'l-'^Abidin, (696) with 
Amir Ikhtiyaru'd-Din Hasan Qurchi, however, took the road 
by Shulistan, while Shah Shuja'^ himself went by Qasr-i-Zard, 
wherein he acted wisely, as he thereby evaded a party of 
the hostile Amirs from Tabriz who had intended to inter- 
cept him. His governor at Abarquh, Jalalu'd-Din Turanshah, 
received him most loyally, and they agreed to march on 
Kirman and endeavour to overthrow the usurper Dawlatshah. 


They set out in the month of Isfandarmudh, A. H. 765, with 
a small army equalling in numlaers the army of the Prophet at 
the Battle of Badr {i.e. 313). Dawlatshah came out to meet them 
with an army of 4000 men. An Arab Amir named Mahmiid 
brought this news to Shah Shuja^ who immediately set out 
from Shahr-i-Babak for Sirjan. The two armies met towards 
sun-down ; Shah Shuja^ in spite of the smallness of his force, 
attacked valourously (697), and was completely victorious, 
capturing abundant spoils and putting Dawlatshah to rout. 
Next day he advanced to Kirman, and on reaching Shahabad, 
one parasang from the city, found that Dawlatshah had 
closed the city gates and was preparing to withstand a siege. 
Finally, however, he was induced by Amir Ramadan Akhtaji 
to surrender, on condition of pardon for his offences, this 
promise being guaranteed by the ivazir Khwaja Turanshah. 
Next day Dawlatshah came out, accompanied by his nobles, 
and received presents and robes of honour. Shortly after- 
wards, however. Shah vShuja^ being informed that Dawlatshah 
meditated a fresh act of treachery and even an attempt at 
assassination, (698) put him to death. Sultan Uways and 
Amir Surghatmish were, on the other hand, honoured and 
rewarded. Shah Shuja^ soon afterwards set out to try to 
recapture Shiraz, and received reinforcements and adhesions 
at Nayriz and other places on his way, but, being deserted 
by the Afghan and Jurma'i contingents, and sickness also 
having attacked him, he was compelled to return to Kirman. 

Campaign in the Garmsir. 

Shah Shuja^ next marched into the Garmsir to subdue the 
Afghans, who retreated to mountain fastnesses, issuing forth 
to fight whenever an opportunity presented itself. (699) The 
campaign was fruitful of hardship to the besiegers, and the 
Afghans asked for help from Shah Mahmud, while Shah 
Yahya and some of the Amirs came to help Surghatmish. 



Shah Yahya sought to be reconciled to his uncle Shah Shuja*^. 
Text of the letter written by the latter to the former in 
response to these overtures. (700). Shah Shuja^ being again 
attacked by pain in the foot and other complaints, retired 
two or three stages. His antagonists, deeming him afraid, 
prepared to attack him, whereupon he turned back, fell upon 
them unawares, and defeated them. Most of them submitted, 
including Amfr Surghatmish, who, with Da'ud-i-Ghuri, had 
taken refuge in the QaPa-i-Sulaymanf. Da'ud, however, esca- 
ped to Shiraz. Shah Yahya set out from Shiraz with an 
army for Yazd, followed by Mubarakshah Aynagh. A battle 
took place between them at Khirama (701), and they turned 
back. Shah Yahya sent from Yazd to demand the elder 
daughter of Shah Shuja*^ in marriage. The request was granted 
and the marriage concluded. Shah Shuja^ then set out to 
subdue Fars. At Chahar Gunbad Shah Mansur b. Shah Mu- 
zafifar b. Muhammad b. Muzafifar came from Yazd to do 
allegiance to his uncle, who treated him with much honour. 
From Shahr-i-Babak Shah Shuja"^ turned back to Shfraz, and 
Shah Mahmud came to meet him. Pahlawan Khurram advanced 
from Mashhad to support Shah Shuja*^, fell in with Shah 
Mahmud's army, and was almost defeated when Shah Shuja*^ 
and his army arrived on the scene (702), and Shah Mahmud 
suffered a severe defeat, two hundred of his best horsemen 
being drowned in a river which they attempted to cross in 
their flight. 

Conquest of Shiraz. 

Shah Shuja'^ then returned to Shfraz. At Pul Basa he was 
again attacked by Shah Mahmud on Saturday, i6th of Dhu'l- 
QaMa, A. H. 767 (= July 25, 1366) and a great battle took 
place. The people -of Shiraz agreed to open the gates to 
Shah Shuja'^, and on Sunday, 24th of Dhu'l-Qa'^da, Shah 
Mahmud retreated towards "^Iraq. Sultan ^Imadu'd-Dfn Ahmad 


left him and made his submission to Shah Shuja^ who once 
again ruled in Fars, (703) and again frequented the assemblies 
of the learned. Thus he attended the lectures of Mawlana 
Qiwamu'd-Dfn Faqih Najm and began to study the Usui of Ibn 
Hajib with the commentary of Mawlana "^Adudu'd-Din '^Ab- 
du'llah. He appointed as Chief Qadi "the Shafi'l of the Age" 
Mawlana Baha'u'd-Din "^Uthman Kuh-gelu'i and made Qut- 
bu'd-Din Sulayfnan-shah b. Khwaja Mahmud Grand Wazir. 
He also sent Mawlana Ghiyathu'd-Dln Kini to Mecca to 
build a rest-house for pilgrims and buy a plot of ground 
for a tomb for himself, giving him 200,000 dindrs for this 
purpose. Both the tomb and the rest-house are still in exis- 
tence. Arabic verse composed by Shah Shuja*^ for the latter. 
In the year A. H. 770 (= A. D. 1368 — 9) he swore allegiance 
to tlie Caliph al-Qahir bi'llah Muhammad b. Abi Bakr al- 
*^Abbas{ '). After he had established himself in Fars, in A. H. 
768 (= A. D. 1366 — 7) he (704) marched on Isfahan. Shah 
Mahmud sent messengers with conciliatory letters to him, 
peace was concluded, and he retired. Some while afterwards 
Shah Mahmud's wife. Khan Sultan, the daughter of Amir 
Kay-Khusraw b. Shah Mahmud-i-lnjii, wrote to Shah Shuja' 
offering, if he passed through *^Iraq, to surrender Isfahan and 
hand over her husband, Shah Mahmud, bound to his brother. 
She added that he should lose no time, as a large army 
was expected shortly from Tabriz, conveying the daughter 
of Sultan Uways. Shah Shuja"^ thereupon again set out for 
Isfahan and encamped outside the city. Shah Mahmud sent 
a deputation of the leading citizens to wait on his brother 
and try to conciliate him, offering complete submission to 

l) There is no evidence of the existence amongst the puppet-Caliphs of 
Cairo of any one bearing this name and title. According to as-SuydtCs 
Ta'rikhu' l-Kkulafd (Cairo ed., pp. 202 — 3) the titular Caliph at this period 
was al-Mutawakkil 'ala'lldh Abii 'Abdk'llah Muhammad b. al-Mu^tadid, who 
was chosen Caliph in A. H. 763 and deposed in favour of al-Wathiq bi'lldh 
in A. II. 785 (= A. D. 1361 — 1384). 



his commands. Shah Shuja^ seeing his brother's humiHty 
(705), agreed to meet him, and concluded a fresh agreement 
with him, after which he again returned to Shiraz. In the 
same year he arrested and imprisoned Khwaja Qutbu'd-Dfn 
Sulayman-Shah, and blinded his son Amir Ghiyathu'd-Dln 
Mahmiid, and sent him a prisoner to Kirman. Qutbu'd-Din 
Sulayman-Shah escaped from prison, went to Isfahan, and 
was made zvazir by Shah Mahmud. Shah Shuja'^ made Shah 
Hasan the son of Shah Mahmud Sayyid Mu'^inu'd-Din Ashraf 
of Yazd his wazir. Shah Mahmud 's wife, Khan Sultan, always 
filled with the desire of avenging the death of her uncle Amir 
Shaykh [Abu Ishaq] and her other relatives, continued to plot 
for the destruction of the Muzaffaris, and therefore kept urging 
Shah Shuja*^ to subjugate *^Iraq, and also endeavoured to 
pass off as her own child the baby son of one of her waiting 
women. These matters were finally brought to the knowledge 
of her husband Shah Mahmud, who, having satisfied him- 
self of their truth, ordered her -to be strangled. At this 
juncture the daughter of Sultan Uways came with a great 
army from Tabriz to "^Iraq to reinforce him. He then again 
advanced against Fars, and Shah Shuja^ collected an army 
and came out to meet him. (706) The two armies met 
at Chasht-khwar. Shah Shuja*^ entrusted the right wing to 
Sultan Ahmad and the left to Shah Mansur, himself taking 
the centre. A fierce battle ensued and lasted all day. Shah 
Shuja^ withdrew to Shiraz, but Shah Mansur with the left wing 
achieved a partial victory, and entered Shiraz laden with spoil. 

Shah Hasan is killed and Tiirdnshdh becomes Wazir. 

At this juncture Shah Hasan showed to Shah Shuja*^ a 
letter purporting to be written by Khwaja Jalalu'd-Din 
Turanshah and Humamu'd-Dfn Mahmud, (707) wherein they 
offered him their allegiance and promised to open the city 
gates to him if he advanced. On the back of this letter 


Shah Mahmud had written that he would come that very 
week. Summoned before Shah Shuja' to give account of this 
matter, the two accused persons declared that the letter was 
not in their writing, and that they had no knowledge of it. 
It happened that Shah Hasan was laid up with pain in the 
foot. Amir Ikhtiyaru'd-Dfn Hasan Qiirchi was sent to ascer- 
tain how the letter had come into his hands, and suspicion was 
aroused that it was a forgery effected by order of Shah Hasan 
by Khwaja Mahmiid-i-Hajji "^Umar Munshf. Shah Hasan's ivazir 
was thereupon seized, tortured and strangled, while Khwaja 
Jalalu'd-Din Turanshah was made wazir, a post for which his 
talents and virtues eminently fitted him. (708) When news 
of these events reached Shah Mahmud, he at once turned 
back to Isfahan. 

Rebellion of Pahlawdn Asad b. Tughdnshdh at Kirmdn. 

When Amfr Mahmud, son of Amir Qutbu'd-Din Sulayman- 
shah, was brought to Kirman, he ingratiated himself with 
the governor, Pahlawan Asad, who was an old friend of his, 
and seduced him from his allegiance to Shah Shuja^ Shah 
Yahya also wrote to him from Yazd and inspired him with 
ambitions of sovereignty, but the presence of "the Mother 
of Kings", Khan Qutlugh, in Kirman restrained him for a 
time from overt rebellion, until a serious quarrel broke out 
between the wrestlers and athletes of Kirman and those of 
Khurasan, in which Khan Qutlugh espoused the cause of 
the Kirmanis and Pahlawan Asad that of the Khurasanis. 
Recriminations and complaints ensued, and Khan Qutlugh 
retired to Slrjan. Thereupon Pahlawan Asad, relieved of her 
presence, began to strengthen the fortifications. Shah Shuja"^ 
refused to believe that he really intended rebellion, and 
Pahlawan Asad, having put the city in a state of defence, 
began to raise an army. (709) In spite of the exhortations 
of Shah Shuja*^ to his sons to avoid intestinal quarrels, his 



eldest son Sultan Uways joined himself to a tribe of Af- 
ghans and forged a letter in his father's name bidding Pah- 
lawan Asad surrender Kirman to him, and even began to 
advance with the tribe on Kirman. Perceiving, however, 
that his enterprise was doomed to failure, he left his army 
and made his way to Isfahan to his uncle Shah Mahmud. 
This increased Pahlawan Asad's boldness, and he proceeded 
to besiege Lakan, the Warden of Qara-i-Kuh, until he sur- 
rendered that fortress. He then arrested the agents of Wd- 
lidatu's-Saldtin, forced them by torture to reveal to him the 
places where her treasures were concealed, and put Khwaja 
Muhammad '^Ulya-abadi in chains (710), taking from him all 
that he possessed, and finally killing him. He also poisoned 
Khwaja Shamsu'd-Din Muhammad, called Zdhid ("the Asce- 
tic") and took his property, and in short greatly oppressed 
the people, so that Kirman never again regained its former 
prosperity. Shah Shuja"^, on learning of these events, sent 
Farrash Hajji Baha'^u'd-Dfn to Isfahan to effect a recon- 
ciliation with his brothers. Being assured in this quarter, he 
marched on Kirman through the Garmsfr by Jiraft and Bam, 
where he learned from the Warden, Amir Husayn, details 
of the rebellion and tyranny of Pahlawan Asad, Shah Shuja*^ 
then advanced hastily to Mahan and alighted at a place 
called Shah-abad, only one parasang from Kirman. Here a 
fierce battle took place. (711) Shah Mansur and his uncle 
Shah Sultan Abii Yazid alighted from their horses and 
valourously endeavoured to fight their way across the bridge 
by the Darwaza-i-Sa'^adat ("Gate of Happiness") and enter 
the city, but Shah Shuja^ fearing lest they should be slain, 
ordered them to retire, and, leaving his brother Sultan ''Imadu 
'd-Dfn Ahmad to reduce the city by siege, himself returned 
to Shiraz. Sultan Ahmad tarried some days at Zarand, where 
many deserters from the army of Kirman joined him. Shah 
Yahya asked for reinforcements from Khwaja ''All Mu'ayyad 


Sabzawarf, who sent him a hundred horsemen commanded by 
the Sarbadar Pahlawan (712) Ghiyath-i-Tuni. Being short of 
money wherewith to pay them, Shah Yahya sent them on 
to Pahlawan Asad, who, fearing further desertions from his 
force, would not set foot outside the city. Sultan Ahmad 
encamped to the south of Mahan, where he was joined by 
Amir Muhammad Jurma'i and his fellow-Amfrs, who had 
forced their way out of the city. Soon, the siege becoming 
more rigorous, the city began to suffer severely from lack 
of provisions. Finally permission was granted for the poorer 
people to leave the city, but many perished and the rest 
were scattered. When the siege had lasted eight months. 
Sultan Ahmad was summoned to Shfraz, and the conduct 
of the siege was entrusted to Pahlawan Khurram, who induced 
Pahlawan Asad to submit. (713) A meeting between the two 
took place in the city in the Qasr-i-Humayun, and it was 
agreed that Pahlawan Asad should send his brother Pahlawan 
Muhammad b. Tughanshah and one of his sons to Shfraz as 
hostages, and should surrender the citadel to the retainers of 
Shah Shuja^ namely to Pahlawan "^All-Shah Marniyanl and 
a hundred of his men. This siege' of Kirman began on Ra- 
madan 20, A. H. 775 (= March 5, 1374), and ended early in 
Rajab, A. H. 776 (= first part' of December, 1374), having 
lasted nine months and twenty days. Now there was a secret 
passage from the citadel to the Palace, and Pahlawan '^All- 
Shah, having corrupted some of Pahlawan Asad's retainers, 
took advantage of it to send a party of determined men 
into the Palace to assassinate Pahlawan Asad. This was 
done on Friday in the middle of Ramadan, A. H. JJ^ (= 
Feb. 16, 1375), and Pahlawan Asad's head was sent to Shfraz. 
Shah Shuja*^ appointed Amfr Ikhtiyaru'd-Dfn Hasan Qurchf 
governor of Kirman. (714) He, by his justice and clemency, 
restored the prosperity of Kirman, and, by his generosity, 
made it a rallying-point for learned and pious men. 



Death of Shah Mahmiid and anarch of Shah Shujd^ 
on Tabriz. 

In the month of Shawwal of this year (March, 1375) news 
was brought to Shah Shuja*^ from Tabriz that Sultan Uways 
was dead ; and on Wednesday the 14th of that month 
(March 18, 1375) news arrived that Shah Mahmiid had died 
on Shawwal 9 (= March 13) and that the two factions in Isfahan 
known as Du-danga and Chahar-Danga were fighting, the former 
wanting Sultan Uways b. Shah Shuja*^ to be qdHm-maqdm or 
Viceroy, and the latter demanding a king. The deceased 
Shah Mahmud was 38 years, five months and nine days old 
when he died, and had ruled over ^Iraq for 17 years, and for 
two years of this period over Fars also. On hearing this news. 
Shah Shuja'^ prepared to set out, and several messengers 
from Tabarak (715) and elsewhere urged him to make all 
possible haste to Isfahan. On approaching that city he was 
met by Sultan Uways and many of the Amirs and nobles 
of Shah Mahmud, and took possession of Isfahan without 
opposition. Sultan Uways shortly afterwards had a fall from 
his horse and broke his leg. Shah Shuja*^ continued his pre- 
parations for an advance on Tabrfz, and raised an army of 
12,000 men. He advanced by way of Jarbadhakan (Gulpaya- 
gan) and Qazwin. At the former place he received adhesions 
and reinforcements, but at the latter he met with opposition. 
He thereupon attacked the city and took it by storm, but 
restrained his troops from looting, threatening death to any 
who should offend in this way. He next advanced to Jurma- 
khwaran, when Sultan Husayn the son of Sultan Uways oppo- 
sed his advance with 24,000 horsemen. Shah Shuja*^ defeated 
the opposing army, and (716) took captive two of their leaders, 
'^Abdu'l-Qahir and Pahlawan Hajji Khar-banda, whom he sent 
in bonds with an announcement of his victory to Fars and ^Iraq. 
He then occupied Tabriz without further difficulty, and sent 


Shah Mansiir with 2000 horsemen to Qara-bagh, Amir Faraj 
to Nakhjuwan, Am{r Isfahan-shah b. Sultan Shah Jandar to 
Awjan, and other Amirs to other parts of Adharbayjan. 

Return of Shah Shujd^ to Tabriz. 

When Shah Shuja'^ had been at Tabriz for two or three 
months, two nomad chiefs named Shibli Da'iid and *^Umar 
Jubdastf agreed to attack Awjan with their followers and 
overthrow Amfr Isfahan-shah, proclaiming that Sultan Husayn 
was at hand with 10,000 horsemen. In this plan they were 
successful, capturing Isfahan-shah and scattering or slaying 
his soldiers, of whom the survivors fled to Tabriz. Shah 
Shuja*^, in spite of the snow and the pain in his foot 
from which he suffered, at once set out in a litter and 
retreated without halting to Qazwin, where the people 
again opposed him (717), but he passed on, without con- 
cerning himself with them, to Kashan, where he was joined 
in a few days by Shah Mansiir and many of the Amirs 
who had been dispersed in different directions, and who 
contradicted the rumours of Sultan Husayn's arrival. It was 
only two months later that he arrived from Baghdad at 
Tabriz, and, in exchange for the nobles of Tabriz taken 
captive and afterwards released by Shah Shuja^ sent Amir 
Isfahan-shah to *^Iraq. Shah Shuja'' gave the daughter of 
Sultan Uways ') in marriage to his son Sultan Zaynu'l-'^Abidin, 
appointed him governor of Isfahan, and himself set out for 
Fars, accompanied by many of the captains and nobles of 
"^Iraq. Being angry with Shah Yahya because of the help 
he had given to Pahlawan Asad, he sent an army against 
him to Yazd, and also composed some very uncomplimen- 
tary verses about him (5 couplets given). {718) Shah Yahya 
succeeded in persuading the army investing Yazd to take 

i) /. e. Sultdn Uways 'Ilkdni of Tabriz, who had recently died, not the 
homonymous son of Shah Shuja^ 



no action against him until he should have time to commu- 
nicate with Shfraz and make his submission, but, when they 
were off their guard, he made a sudden sortie and put them 
to rout, seizing much spoil. The remnants of the army fled 
to Shiraz, and Shah Shuja*^ then resolved to go in person, 
to take revenge on Shah Yahya, but Shah Mansur per- 
suaded him to allow him to go instead. Shah Yahya, reali- 
zing that this army would not withdraw until they had 
made an end of him, sent his mother to intercede for him, 
and she eventually succeeded in effecting a reconciliation 
between the two brothers. The army, learning this, began 
to make off in successive bands for Shiraz, leaving only Shah 
Mansur and his immediate followers at Yazd. (719) Shah 
Yahya now strove to persuade Shah Mansur to go to Ma- 
zandaran and raise an army there to enable them to carry 
out their joint projects, nor would he allow Shah Mansur 
to enter the city. Finally the latter set out for Mazandaran, 
and Shah Shuja^ arrived in person with a large army to 
punish Shah Yahya, who again, however, by means of the 
intercession of the daughter and elder sister of Shah Shuja^ 
and his youngest son Sultan Jahangir, succeeded in pacifying 
the angry monarch and inducing him to withdraw to Shfraz. 
In the year A. H. 780 (= A. D. 1378 — 9) Shah Husayn b. 
Shah Muzaffar b. Muhammad b. Muzaffar, the younger bro- 
ther of Shah Yahya, came to Shfraz, and was well received 
by his uncle Shah Shuja"^ who appointed him deputy [qdHm- 
maqdm) of his brother Shah Mansur. In A. H. 781 (= A. D. 
1379 — 1380) Shah Shuja*^ set out for Sultaniyya, where a 
certain Sariq "^Adil had gathered together an army and was 
endeavouring by violence to usurp the supreme power. (720) 
He suffered a serious reverse; his great army, drawn from 
Fars, '^Iraq and Luristan, waS scattered, and he himself was 
thrown from his horse. Surrounded by a few faithful retainers 
he continued to fight on foot, until Malik Bawarchf, one of 


his officers, gave him his own horse. Another officer, Akhi 
Kuchuk, "the Rustam of the Age", came up and stayed the 
panic, and presently 10,000 or 15,000 gathered round Shah 
Shuja^ One of Shah Husayn's standards and a set of his 
kettle-drums were recovered by them, and Shah Shuja^ taking 
this as a good omen, ordered shouts of victory to be raised. 
Hearing these, and seeing such trophies in the hands of their 
foes, Sariq' ^Adil's men were panic-stricken and fled to the 
city, which was soon afterwards occupied by Shah Shuja*^. 
Sariq *^Adil and his captains took refuge in the citadel, and 
began to sue for peace. Shah Shuja*^ received their overtures 
favourably, and a treaty was concluded. (721) Rich presents 
were given to Shah Shuja^ who then received Sariq *^Adil 
with honour, left him in possession of the city, and returned 
with his army to Shfraz. 

About this time several other events took place deserving 
of mention. 

First, Sultan Zaynu'l-'^Abidin, to whom the government of 
Isfahan had been entrusted, by reason of his youth and the 
pride of ignorance neglected his duties to the people. He 
was therefore dismissed, and Pahlawan Khurram was made 
governor in his stead. He on his death was succeeded by 
Pahlawan Muhammad Zaynu'd-Din. Ultimately Sultan Zaynu'l- 
*^Abidin, after suffering a brief imprisonment, was restored. 

Secondly, Sultan Ahmad, the son of Sultan Uways '), rebelled 
in Tabriz, killed his brother Sultan Husayn and others of 
his kinsmen, and usurped control over the province of Adhar- 

Thirdly, Fir 'All Badak, one of the chief nobles of Hama- 
dan, fled to Shfraz, where he was well received by Shah 
Shuja*^ and sent to Shiishtar, which he subdued, appointing 
a servant named Islam as its governor, and himself pro- 
ceeding to Baghdad, where he struck coins in the name of 

i) Here again Sultdn Uways 'Ilkdnf of Tabriz is intended. 



Shah Shuja*^, and caused the khiitba to be read in his name. 

(722) Fourthly, Sultan Ahmad set out from Tabriz for 
Baghdad. Prince Shaykh "Ah' and Pi'r ""Ah' Badak went with 
an army to intercept him, but were both killed and their 
army routed, and Baghdad also fell into Sultan Ahmad's hands. 

Fifthly, SultanUways, son of Shah Shuja^ sickened and died. 

Sixthly, Shah Mansur, who had been for a while a fugitive 
in . Mazandaran, came to Sultaniyya to Sariq "^Adil, who, 
since he claimed to be loyal to Shah Shuja", arrested and 
imprisoned him. He was, however, released by some of his 
adherents, and came to Baghdad, where he was well received 
by Sultan Ahmad, of whose sincerity, however, he was suspi- 
cious. Islam, the governor of Shushtar, informed Shah Shuja*^ 
of this, and he sent Pahlawan "^Ali Shah Marniyani to Islam's 
help. The former, as soon as he had established himself, 
designed to oust the latter, but his plot miscarried, and he 
himself was killed. In the same year Sultan Ahmad sent 
Shah Mansur to Shustar, into which he gained admittance 
by the help of certain friendly Shaykhs. He then gradually 
rid himself of his most powerful opponents, and began to 
harry the province of Luristan, killing and plundering the 
people. (723) The Atabek Pashang complained to Shah Shuja^ 
and begged him to send an army and take Shushtar. At 
this juncture an ambassador arrived from Baghdad, and Sultan 
Ahmad complained of Sariq "^Adil, because he had placed 
his younger brother, Sultan Bayazid, on the throne at Sul- 
taniyya, and had thus created an estrangement between the 
brothers. Shah Shuja'^ answered both ambassadors according 
to their desires, promising to march on Sultaniyya with an 
army, and, on his return thence, to proceed to Shushtar by 
way of Lur-i-Kuchak. 

Sultan Shibli is arrested and blinded. 

Shah Shuja"^, on setting out from Shlraz, was accompanied 



by his son Sultan Shibli, who generally followed two or 
three stages behind him. At Bayda he wished to review his 
army befoVe his father. (724) Certain mischief-makers sought 
to alarm Shah Shuja*^ by misrepresenting the Prince's object, 
and accusing him of rebellious intentions, asserting that he 
was secretly in league with Amfr Muzaffaru'd-Dfn Salghar- 
shah Rashfdf. Shah Shuja^ recalling the legendary king Firf- 
diin's words to his undutiful sons (here given not from the 
Shdhndnia, but in Arabic), was much alarmed, and in the 
month of Rabi^ i, A. H. 785 (= May 1383) arrested both the 
accused, imprisoning the Amir Salghar-shah in the citadel, 
and Sultan Shibli in the castle of Iqlid. Then one day, being 
drunk, he ordered Amir Ramadan Akhtaji and Khwaja 
Jawhar-i-Kuchak to go to the castle and deprive the Prince 
of his sight. Next day Shah Shuja*^ repented of his action, 
and sent off a mounted messenger to countermand the cruel 
order, but he arrived too late, and the king's repentance 
was vain. This cruel deed, moreover, brought him ill luck, 
for Khan Qutlugh "the Mother of Kings" died (725), and 
Shah Husayn, the brother of Shah Yahya and Shah Mansur 
also died on that campaign. Shah Shuja*^ then proceeded to 
Sultaniyya. When he reached Qazwin, Sultan Bayazid and 
Sariq *^Adil came out to meet him, and were graciously 
received. Amir Ya^qiib-shah the standard-bearer was sent to 
Sultan Ahmad, and peace was concluded between the bro- 
thers. Shah Shuja"^ removed Sariq '^Adil from his post, and 
returned to Shfraz. 

Shah Shujd^ marches against Shushtar and Luristdn. 

On returning from Qazwin, Shdh Shujd^ sent his army by 
way of Lur-i-Kuchak to Khurram-dbad, where he encamped 
beneath the citadel and received the allegiance of Malik "^Izzu'd- 
Din, whose daughter he demanded in marriage. The service 
was conducted by MawUna SaMu'd-Din Anasi, and four days 



were devoted to the celebration of their nuptials. After this 
Shah Shuja^ proceeded over bad roads and through moun- 
tains to Dizful and Shushtar, the army suffering much from 
the cold, for it was winter. When they reached the Shushtar 
river, heavy rain came on, which lasted for several days, 
but finally the weather cleared, and the Atabek Shamsu'd- 
Din Pashang arrived, and also Shah Mansur, from the other 
side of the river, with 500 or 600 horsemen fully equipped. 
Thus they remained for a week, as the river was too high 
for them to be able to cross. On both sides there was talk 
(726) of peace. Shah Mansur came to one bank of the river, 
and Shah Shuja^ to the other, and this was as near as they 
could come to meeting. Shah Shuja'^ then retired, promising 
the Atabek to send an army from Shiraz under the command 
of Sultan Bayazid to reinforce him, and proceed with him 
to Shushtar by way of Kuh-Gayluya. Shah Shuja*^ returned 
to Shiraz, while the Atabek went to Idaj. On the march 
Faraj Agha deserted Shah Shuja*^ and went to Shushtar. On 
reaching Shiilistan, Shah Shuja^ remained there a few days 
making merry, but, falling ill, he proceeded to Shiraz, where 
he was met by the ladies of the court, who were returning 
from Isfahan. Once more he plunged into an orgie of drink- 
ing, which he continued without intermission until his ill- 
ness again grew serious, and he was obliged to take to his 
bed. His complaint baffled the skill of the physicians, (727) 
and he presently realized that he must die, and .set about 
making all the arrangements for his funeral and interment. 
Meanwhile the Amirs and people were divided into two hostile 
parties as to who should succeed the dying king, one preferring 
Shah Shuja'^'s son Sultan Zaynu'l-'^Abidin, and the other his 
brother Sultan Ahmad. Shah Shuja^ on hearing this, sent for his 
son Zaynu'l-Abidin, and gave him some fatherly advice on the 
necessity of unity and concord amongst kinsmen, of which the 
substance is given. (728) Zaynu'l-^Abidin was much moved by 


this, and by his father's impending death, and on his coming 
forth from the death-chamber, Shah Shuja"^ sent for his brother 
Sultan Ahmad and they wept together. Then Shah Shuja*^ 
gave Sultdn Ahmad a similar admonition, begged him to set 
out at once for Kirmdn and assume the government of that 
city, and urged him not to suffer himself to be led into rebel- 
lion against Zaynu'l-'^Abidin, nor to give countenance to 
those mischief-makers who were already engaged in stirring 
up strife. He then gave him further advice as to his beha- 
viour, and what he should seek and avoid. (729) Advice of 
Shdh Shujd*^ to Sultdn Ahmad as to the government of Kirmdn 
and Bam, the treatment of the tribes, and other matters, 
continued. (730) On that very day Sultan Ahmad left Shirdz 
and set out for Kirman. After this Shdh Shuja*^ wrote a 
letter to Ti'mur (Tamerlane). Text of this letter. (731) Same 
continued. (732) Same continued. Shdh Shujd*^ mentions his 
age as fifty-three. He announces his choice of Zaynu'l-'^Abidfn 
as his successor, and commends him and his other sons and 
brothers to Timur's favour. (733) Conclusion of letter. — 
Having completed all these arrangements. Shah Shujd*^ expired 
on Sunday, 22nd of Sha'bdn, A. H. y86 (= October 9, A. D. 
1384), and was buried at the foot of the Mountain of Chil 
Maqdm at Shfrdz, according to the wish which he had ex- 
pressed '). (734) His age at the time of his death was 5 3 years 
and 3 months, and he had reigned 27 years. On his death 
confusion ensued : the people of "^Irdq demanded Shdh Yahyd; 
Sultdn Ahmad, as already narrated, was ruler of Kirmdn; 
and Sultdn Zaynu'l-'^Abidfn reigned in Shfrdz in the place 
of his father. 

i) This statement hardly agrees with that made on p. 703 of the text 
(p. 178 supra) to the ciTect that ShAh Shujd' spent a large sum of money in 
buying a plot of ground for his tomb at Mecca. 


Reign of Zaynii l-" Abidin b. Jaldhi d-Din Shah Shtijd'^ 

b. Mubdrizu' d-Din Muhammad b. Sharafu' d-Din Muzaffar 

b. Shujd^ti d-Din Mansur b. Ghiydthti d-Din Hdjji. 

No sooner had Zaynu'l-'^Abidfn succeeded his father than 
Shah Yahya marched from Isfahan to attack him. Sultan 
Bayazid deserted the former and joined the latter. The two 
armies, however, separated without fighting, and some sort 
of agreement was made between the two rivals. Soon after- 
wards the Isfahanis, prompted by their intrinsic malice and 
turbulence, expelled Shah Yahya from their city (735), and he 
fled with his retainers to Yazd, while Sultan Bayazid went to 
Luristan. Zaynu'l-^Abidin, being informed of this, appointed 
his mother's brother Amfr Muzafifar-i-Kdshf governor of Isfahan. 

Sultan "^IrnddiC d-Din Ahmad b. Muhammad 
b. al-MtLzaffar b. al-Mansiir b. al-Hdjji comes to Kirmdn. 
Sultan '^Imadu'd-Din Ahmad reached Kirman on Friday, 
the 20th of Sha*^ban, A. H. 786 (= October 7, 1384), and was 
met by the loyal and God-fearing Amir Ikhtiyaru'd-Dfn Hasan 
Qiirchf, and other notables of the city, who brought him to 
the Qasr-i-Humdyim (Royal Palace) and delivered to him the 
keys. Amir Hasan wished, but was not permitted, to go to 
Shiraz. Two days later the news of the death of Shah Shuja*^ 
arrived, and public mourning was observed. Sultan Ahmad 
was enthroned as ruler of Kirman. His virtues and benefi- 
cence, especially towards the ^ulamd. His lack of decision 
and easy-going character. 

Amir Surghatmish the Afghdn joins his tribe. 

Zaynu'l-^Abidin, having made peace with Shah Yahya, 
released Amir Surghatmish (736), who had been for some 
time detained by Shah Shujd^ and sent him to his tribe. 
Sultan Ahmad, on his arrival at Kirman, showed much favour 
to Amir Muhammad Jurma'f, who had formerly served him^ 


faithfully, and imprisoned Amir Tdkur the Afghan. The 
Afghan amirs were, generally speaking, in a miserable and 
impoverished condition, and, on the arrival of Amfr Sur- 
ghatmish in the Garmsir, at once joined him. Sultdn Ahmad, 
being informed of this by Amir Muhammad, set out from 
Kirman with an army. On reaching the Garmsir ') he was joined 
by a nuYnber of warriors, whom he received with honour, 
and proceeded to Chahar Gunbad, where he was further 
reinforced by Amfr Muhammad with a number of the Jurma'i 
amirs. Surghatmish sent scouts to bring him correct infor- 
mation about this army, but these fell in with a detachment 
of Sultan Ahmad's army and were put to rout. Surghatmish 
thereupon retreated to the Garmsfr to Tarim, leaving his 
brother Jamshfd in the Castle of Arzu. A letter from 'AH 
[b.] Nasr, the governor of Sirjdn, to Surghatmish, promising him 
help, fell into Sultdn Ahmad's hands, and he caused '^Ali 
[b.] Nasr to be put to death, and set out for Sirjan, where he 
confiscated the traitor's possessions. Two>or three days later 
the Sultdn set out to lay siege to the Castle of Arzu, (737) 
which he subdued without much difficulty, and put certain 
suspected persons to death, sending Jamshid in chains with 
the severed heads of the slain to Kirman, whither he followed 
him. In A. H. 787 (= A. D. 1385 — 6) arrived an envoy from 
Ti'miir, viz. Mawldnd Qutbu'd-Din, bringing assurances of 
favour and friendship, and Sultan Ahmad caused Timur's 
name to be inserted on the coinage and in the khtitba. 
After this Amfr Surghatmish sought help from Shfrdz, and 
received reinforcements commanded by Pahlawdn Zaynu'd- 
Di'n Shahr-i-Bdbakf. Amfr Muhammad at once informed Sultdn 
Ahmad, who wished to march against Surghatmish in person, 
but was dissuaded, and contented himself with sending an 
army commanded by Pahlawdn '^Ali Qiirchf, who was "the 

l) MS. "Shfrdz", which is certainly an error, though the emendation is 


Rustam of the Army of Kirmdn", supported by Amfr Muham- 
mad Jurma'i. (738) A battle took place in which Amir Muham- 
mad slew Siirghatmish in single combat with a blow of his 
mace, and the enemy, on seeing this, lost all discipline and 
courage and were speedily routed, with great losses in slain 
and prisoners. Sultan Ahmad then appointed Pahlawan ^AH 
Qiirchi governor of the Afghans. 

Arrival of Sultan Abii Yazid [or Bdyazid] b. Muhammad 
b. al-Muzaffar at Kirmdn. 

In A. H. 788 (= A. D. 1386—7) Sultan Bayazid set out from 
Luristan for Kirman, sending Khwaja Tdju'd-Dfn Salmani on 
in advance to announce his arrival. Sultan Ahmad sent Mihtar 
Hasan the farrdsh to meet him and prepare fodder and pro- 
visions for his escort. Sultan Bayazid halted at Shahr-i-BAbak, 
and his ill-disciplined and hungry soldiers began to loot and 
plunder. Sultan Ahmad was much vexed at this, and refused 
to allow Sultan Bayazid to enter Kirman, so he turned back 
disappointed to Yazd and joined Shah Yahya. 

{739) Timur's first entry into ^Irdq and Fdrs. 

In Shawwal, A. H. 789 (= Oct.— Nov., A. D. 1387) news 
arrived that Ti'mur had advanced into "^Iraq, and that Amir 
Muzaffar-i-Kashi and all the nobles and captains of "^Iraq v 
had waited upon him and surrendered to him the keys of 
all the cities and fortresses. Sultan Zaynu'l-^Abidin with his 
Amirs left Shiraz and went towards Baghdad, while Shah 
Yahya busied himself in preparing suitable presents where- 
with to propitiate Timur (who promised security to all who 
submitted to him) and ordered a certain sum of money to 
be paid to him for the maintenance of his army. His officers 
entered Isfahan to collect this money, but the Isfahanis rose 
against them and slew then? all. Next day Timur's soldiers 
entered the city and made a general massacre, in which 


nearly 200,000 of the inhabitants were slain. Then Tfmur 
set out for Fdrs, and Sultdn Ahmad came from Kirman to 
pay him his respects, sending Amfr Ikhthiydru'd-Dln Hasan 
on in advance. (740) The latter was well received by Timur, 
and in consequence sent messages to Sultan Ahmad urging 
him to come without delay. He also met with a favourable 
reception from the great conqueror, and was by him con- 
firmed in the government of Fdrs, ""Irdq and Kirman. Then 
Tfmur returned to his capital Samarqand. 

Sultan Bdyazid comes to Kirman. 

Sultdn Ahmad was accompanied on his return to Kirman 
by some of Tlmur's revenue officers. Sultan Bayazid was 
preparing to march on India, but, on hearing how the king- 
dom had been apportioned by Tfmiir, he returned to the 
Garmsir, where he was joined by the tribe of the Afghans. 
Sultdn Ahmad was greatly disturbed by this news, the country 
being in disorder and the army scattered, some of the sol- 
diers having even joined Sultan Bayazid, but nevertheless 
he marched out to attack his rival, whom he defeated and 
took prisoner, but treated kindly (741) and forgave, though 
he put to death those who had misled him, and sent their 
heads with a proclamation of victory to Kirman, whither he 
followed them, accompanied by his brother. Thence he went 
to Sfrjan on a hunting excursion, sending his brother to 
Manuqan to look after the revenues of Hurmuz. He then 
returned to Kirmdn, where he was presently joined by his 
brother Bayazid after he had compelled the people of Ma- 
nuqdn (or Manujdn) to submit and pay tribute. 

Capture of Sultdn ZaynuH-^Abidin. 

When Sultdn Zaynu'l-'^Abidfn, with his Amirs, soldiers and 
treasures, set out from Shlrdz for Baghdad, he was met at 
Shiishtar by Shdh Mansur, and brought across the river to 


the city, outside which he encamped. He was hospitably 
entertained by Shah Mansur, and was visited by the wife 
of the latter (who was the daughter of Shah Shujd^ and 
therefore his sister or half-sister) and her son Sultan Gha- 
danfar. Gradually, as confidence increased, the soldiers of 
Zaynu'l-^Abidin, and finally he himself with his captains, 
ventured into the city in pursuance of their affairs, until 
suddenly Shah Mansur seized and bound Zaynu'l-^Abidin 
and his chief officers, took possession of his treasure and 
property, and invited his soldiers to take service with him. 
{742) Being aware that his brother Shah Yahya was in 
Shiraz and that Tfmur had returned to Samarqand, Shah 
Mansur imprisoned Zaynu'l '^Abidfn in the citadel, induced 
most of his Amirs to join him, and marched on Shiraz. 
Shah Yahya, unable to meet him, retreated to Yazd, and 
Mansur occupied Shiraz without opposition. He seized the 
chief nobles, and blinded Amir Ghiyathu'd-Din Mansur Shul. 
Shah Yahya, on reaching Yazd, lured Pahlawan-i-Muhadh- 
dhab, the governor of Abarquh, thither on some pretext, 
and on his arrival put him to death, seized Abarquh, and 
took possession of his treasure, which he had amassed in 
the course of many years. He then sent messengers to Sultan 
Abu Ishaq at Sirjan, and induced him to enter into an alliance. 

Shah Yahya marches on Kir man. 

When Sultan Abu Ishaq, relinquishing all thought of 
Kirmdn, allied himself with Shah Yahya, the latter marched 
from Yazd by way of Anar to subdue Kirman, plundering 
as he went, until he arrived at Nuq. Amir Ikhtiydru'd-Dln 
Hasan, one of the principal nobles of Kirman, had recently 
died. Sultan Ahmad and his brother [Sultan Bayazid] set out 
on their march, while Shah Yahya proceeded from Nuq to 
Baft, where he was joined by Sultan Abu Ishaq and the army 
of Sirjan, and where the two armies met in battle. At this 


juncture an ambassador, who was coming from the court of 
Tfmur to Kirmdn (743), came up, and strove to effect a 
reconciUation, but without success. On Saturday, the 7th of 
Jumdda I, A. H. 792 {= April 23, 1390) a battle took place 
at Baft between the two factions, in which Shah Yahya was 
finally defeated and fled to Yazd, while Sultan Abu Ishdq 
entrenched himself in Si'rjan. Sultan Ahmad sent a procla- 
mation of his victory with the heads of the slain to Kirman, 
and proceeded to Sirjan, which capitulated after a few days' 
siege. Abu Ishdq surrendered, did obeisance to Sultan Ahmad, 
was pardoned and received back into favour, and was restored 
to his former position as governor of Sfrjdn. Amfr Hajji Shah, 
the brother of Abu Ishaq's mother, who was deemed respon- 
sible for this rebellion (744) was, however, "put to death 
after a brief imprisonment. In the same year, in the month 
of Shawwdl (Sept. 12 — Oct. 10, 1390), Sultan Abu Ishaq died, 
aged 37, and was deeply mourned by the people of Kirman. 
Hj2 was a poet, and one of his quatrains is quoted as a 

Sultdn Zaynu'l-'^Abidin comes to Isfahdn. 

When Shdh Mansur had established himself in Shiraz, some 
of those charged with the custody of Zaynu'l-*^Abidin at 
Shushtar agreed to liberate him and bring him to Isfahan, 
where he was well received by the people. 

Reign of Shdh Mansur b. Shdh Muzaffar b. Muhammad 
b. Muzaffar \b. Mansur] b. Hdjji. 

When Shdh Mansur had established himself in Shirdz, he 
proceeded to attack and capture Abarqiih, and then mar- 
ched on Isfahdn, devastating the country as he passed. He 
returned, however, to Shirdz without effecting much, and 
found it suffering from famine and drought (745). i" conse- 
quence of which many of the people of Fdrs had perished 



or emigrated. The Atdbek Shamsu'd-Din Pashang had been 
succeeded on his death by the Atdbek Pir Ahmad, between 
whom and his younger brother Malik Hiishang a quarrel had 
arisen, in which the latter was slain. Thus internecine strife 
arose in Luristan, and Shah Mansur proceeded thither and 
drove out Pfr Ahmad, who went to lay a complaint before 
Timur. Shah Mansur meanwhile appointed Malik Uways, a 
local nobleman, governor of Luristan, and himself set out 
for Shiraz to prepare a fresh expedition against Isfahan. 
Meanwhile Shah Yahya had persuaded Zaynu'l-'^Abidin that 
he must ally himself with Sultdn Ahmad to seek vengeance 
on Shah Mansur, and the two allies agreed to meet at Si'rjdn 
in Safar, A. H. 793 (= January, 1391). There Sultan Ahmad 
and his son Sultdn Ghiyathu'd-Din Muhammad were met by 
Sultan Zaynu'l-*^Abidin coming from Isfahan, and entertained 
by Sultan Abu Ishaq (746). After a few days they set out for 
Fars. At Tdrim they were joined by the Hazara tribe, but 
at Furg Shah Mansur with a large army barred their way. 
•Sultan Ahmad made his way to Nayriz by way of Khush- 
Nawa. Shah Yahya sent word that he was coming with all 
speed and that his allies should await his arrival, so, in spite 
of the advice of their officers and nobles to continue their 
advance, they tarried some ten days in that neighbourhood. 
However, Shah Yahya did not arrive, and meanwhile Shah 
Mansur re-entered Shirdz, raised and equipped a fresh army, 
and again took the field. Sultan Ahmad went by way of 
Sarvistan to Pasd (Fasa), while Shah Mansur proceeded by 
another road to the Garmsir. The two armies met on a 
Friday evening at Fasa. Shah Mansur, who expected reinfor- 
cements, pretended to wish to arrive at a peaceful agreement, 
and battle was not joined until Saturday, when he fiercely 
attacked the armieS of Kirman and Isfahdn, put them to rout, 
and killed many. The fugitives made for Kirmdn, but Sultdn 
Zaynu'l-'^Abidin left them at Qatra and went to Isfahdn, 


while Sultan Ahmad went to Kirman, and Sultan Abu Ishdq 
halted at Sfrjdn. 

Isfahdn is captured by Shah Mansur, and Sultan Zaynul- 
'^Abidin taken and blinded. 

(747) Shdh Mansur after his victory returned to Shiraz, 
and was joined by many deserters from the rival army. He 
then marched on Isfahan, and Sultan Zaynu'l-'^Abidin, unable 
to oppose him, fled to Khurasan by way of Ray. Shdh Mansur 
was now master of '^Irdq. The governor of Ray, Musd "Jaw-kar" 
("the barley-farmer"), treacherously seized Zaynu'l-'^Abidin and 
sent him bound to Shah Mansur, who immediately deprived 
him of his eyesight. What Shdh Mansur subsequently suffered 
at the hands of Timur is regarded by the author as a punish- 
ment for this cruel deed. Shah Mansur next proceeded to Yazd, 
and laid waste that city and its environs, after which he set out 
for Kirmdn, whither he sent an ambassador bidding his uncle 
and his brother Shdh Yahyd renounce their allegiance to 
Tfmur and each send one of the sons and some retainers to 
accompany him to Khurasan and hold the river (Oxus) against 
a possible invasion of Timur. (748) In case of their refusal, 
he threatened them with war. Sultdn Ahmad declined to 
accede to this proposal, and pointed out the folly of pro- 
voking Tfmur. Shah Mansur thereupon harried the neigh- 
bourhood and then returned to Shiraz, whence he presently 
set out again to lay siege to Yazd where Shah Yahya was. 
Several skirmishes took place, in one of which a certain 
Amfr of Shah Mansur's named Gurgin was killed. Shah Mansur, 
greatly enraged, laid waste the whole country-side and again 
advanced on Kirman as far as Rudan and Rafsinjan, laying 
waste this country also. Some of his Amirs deserted him and 
joined Sultan Ahmad, who accorded them a good reception. 
Shah Mansur, alarmed at these desertions, withdrew to Shiraz, 
and succeeded by favours and gifts in inducing Sultan Abii Ishaq 


to join him (749) in attacking Kirmdn. Abu Ishaq advanced from 
Sirjan into the Garmsir, and Sultan Ahmad marched thither 
to meet him, halting for a month at Baft, where ambassadors 
from Timur came to him and informed him that their master 
was advancing with his army on ''Iraq and Fdrs, and that 
it behoved him to meet them with the army of Kirman at 
Ray. Sultan Ahmad thereupon returned to Kirmdn, where, 
prompted by certain envious and malicious slanderers, he 
put to death Pahlawdn Qutbu'd-Din Haydar on a false charge 
of intriguing with Sultan Abu Ishdq. Tfmur's envoy ') began to 
approach Kirman at the beginning of A. H. 795 (= latter part 
of November, 1392), and Sultan Ahmad with all his nobles went 
to meet him and bring him in to Kirman. Shah Mansur, 
who was then at Isfahan, retired to Shiraz and betook him- 
self to the wine-bottle, so that for forty days no one saw 
him in public. 

(750) Second invasion of Fdrs by Timicr. 

Timur, on leaving his winter quarters in Mazandaran, and 
subduing Sultaniyya and the neighbourhood, proceeded to 
Hamadan, whence he sent Muhammad Sultan Bahadur through 
Kurdistan, with orders to rejoin the main army at Huwayza 
and Dizful. At the same time he sent prince "^Umar Shaykh 
Bahadur by way of Qum, Awa, Sawa and parts of Lur-i- 
Buzurg and Lur-i-Kuchak to meet him at the same rendez- 
vous. Malik '^Izzu'd-Din the Lur was at that time engaged 
in a dispute with his son, but on hearing of the advance of 
Tlmur's troops they at once made peace, and, going in 
opposite directions, evacuated Lur-i-Kuchak. Timur, leaving 

l) This passage is obscure. The literal translation is : "the King of kings 
(Shdh-i-Shdhati) with the army reached the Kirman road". Either the expres- 
sion "King of kings" refers to some one other than Timiir, or the words 
"envoy of" have been omitted, for it appears certain from the other histories 
of the period {Zafar-ndina^ ''Aja'ibu' l-Maqdiir^ MatlaSis-Sa'^dayn^ Habibu's- 
Siyar^ etc.) that Timdr never visited Kirmdn, ' 


Amir Sayfu'd-Din Qultash with some 500 men to hold Bu- 
rujird, and Amir Hajji Timur Buqa and Shaykh Sistani, with 
the same number of men, to hold Khurramabad, advanced 
towards Shushtar by way of Samra (751). and thence to 
Dizful, where he was received by the nobles and chief men. 
When "^Ali Kiitwal and Amir Isfandiyar who governed Shushtar 
on behalf of Shah Mansur, heard this, they fled to Shfraz, 
and Timur entered Dizful without opposition. Leaving Khwaja 
Mas^d with a thousand men to garrison Shushtar, and Hasan-i- 
Rashid at Huwayza, and one of his Khurasanl officers at 
Dizful, Timur advanced by way of Bahbahan towards Shiraz. 
Mihtar Sa^adat the farrdsh, who was the Warden of Qal'^a-i- 
Safid, trusting in the impregnability of that fortress, renowned 
from ancient times, opposed Timiir, who, on the third day 
after his arrival, stormed and took the castle and put all 
the garrison to the sword. When this news reached Shah 
Mansur he fled incontinently from Shiraz to the Bridge of 
Fasa. Being joined there by certain fugitives, he enquired 
of them what the people of Shiraz were saying, and they 
replied that they were laughing at him because, with all his 
arrogance and heavy quiver, he had "fled like a goat". 
(752) On hearing this, shame and his evil destiny prompted 
him to turn back and oppose Timur, who had already 
reached Shiraz, with his small army of 3000 men, mostly 
nomads. When Timur saw him prepared for battle, he entrusted 
the right wing of his host to Pfr Muhammad Bahadur, the 
left to Prince. Muhammad Sultan Bahadur and the centre to his 
son (753) Prince Shah Rukh. As Timur's army advanced. Shah 
Mansur's right and left wings at once gave way and fled, but 
he himself, with his bravest retainers, stood firm, and fought 
with desperate valour, so that Timur's body-guard gave 
way, all except four or five men •), until at last he was left 

i) That Timiir was very hard pressed, and that Shah Mansiir even succeeded 


alone, wounded in three places in the neck and face. (754) 
Unrecognized, he made his way into the city; but one of 
Tfmur's soldiers dragged him from his horse, and, as he fell 
to the ground, his helmet fell off his head, and he cried, 
"I am he whom you seek: give me a draught of water, and 
take me alive to Tfmur." The soldiers paid no heed to his 
request, but killed him on the spot and brought his head 
to Timur. Most of his retainers were also killed or taken 
captive; Fars was subjugated, and proclamations of victory 
were sent by Timur through his empire. Sultan Ahmad and 
Mahdi the son of Shah Shuja'^ were on their way to Timur's 
camp when news of these events reached them : they has- 
tened their advance and made their submission. Sultan Abii 
Ishaq b. Uways b. Shah Shuja^ left a servant named Gudarz " 
in charge of the Castle of Sfrjan, and himself went to 
Timur, who caused all these princes to be put in chains, 
Fars and "^Iraq were assigned to Prince "^Umar Shaykh Bahadur, 
and Kirman to Idaku Bahadur, to whom, on presentation 
of a letter from Sultan Ahmad to his son Sultan Ghiyathu'd- 
Din Muhammad, the keys of the city were at once surren- 
dered (755)- -^ week later, during the first third of Rajab, 
A. H. 795 (= May 13 — 22,1393) an Imperial Rescript was 
issued in the village of Mahyar, ordering all the House of 
Muzaffar, great and small, to be put to death, which order 
was ruthlessly carried oat.

is that of most MSS. of the Guzida^ is confirmed by the statement that he 
died in the time of the Caliph al-Mu'^tadid (A. H. 279 — 289 = A. D. 892 — 902).

Kubra, and asked (789) what atonement would 
suffice to expiate this deed, to which the Shaykh 
replied that their lives and the lives of many

ably held to have hinted prophetically at the 
fatal results of the impending Mongol invasion.

(After N°. 151, on p. 794, there follows a mere list of 
names, concerning whom the author has been unable to 
ascertain any particulars as to date or circumstances. This list 
extends to p. 796, 1. 14, and, with the longer notices which 
precede, brings up the total number of Shaykhs mentioned 
to 287). — (796) According to a tradition there are always 
300 of God's Saints [Awliyd) on earth, of whom 40 attain 
great, 7 still greater, and one supreme eminence. This last 
is the Qiitb or "Pole", the Pivot of the World, and God's 
Proof to His creatures. On his death he is succeeded by the 
next in order, and {797) this hierarchy thus exists unbroken. 
The author puts the total number of Saints whose names 
are recorded at over 80,000 and possibly as many as 124,000, 
of whom, for the sake of brevity, he has, he says, enume- 
rated 313, so that there are evidently some omissions in 
this manuscript and most others. The author ends this sec- 
tion with a bitter denunciation of the Shaykhs and Sufis of 
his own time. 

i) According to the Jdmi^u't-Tatudrikh (Paris MS., Suppl. persan 209, 
ff. 'i^ib — 354a) and Ibn Taghri Bardi's al-Manhalu' s-Sdfi (Paris MS., Fonds 
arabe 2068, f. 28a) it was Shaj'kh Sadru'd-Din Ibraliim b. Shaykh Sa'^du'd-Dm 
Hammuya who was instrumental in converting Ghazan Khdn and some 100,000 
Mongol soldiers to Islam. See vol. i of the To' rikh-i-Jahdngushdy in this 
series, pp. LXii — LXiii (-:_ — ^_-^) of the Persian Introduction. It is difficult to 
account for the discrepancy between these and the To' rikh-i-Guzida^ since 
the authors of all three works were in a position to know the truth. Perhaps 
the author of the Guzida war anxious to give credit to a fellow-citizen for 
this achievement.

the most correct of the Paris MSS. (Suppl. persan 173, f. 277a) they are 
given as follows: "Sayyid Isma*^il b. Husayn b. Mahmud b. Ahmad al-*^Alawi

236 — 8) where it is given as "Abii Ibrahim Isma'^il b. Hasan b. Ahmad b. 
Muhammad al-Husayni al-Jurjani". This much at least is certain, that his name 
was Isma^il and his native place Jurjdn. 

2) See the Chahdr Maqdla (vol. xi of this series), pp. 237 — 8. 

3) An obvious error. According to the Fihrist (p. 277) and Ibn Khallikan 
{s.v. Ja^far) Abii Ma'^shar died in A. H. 272 (= A. D. 885— 6).

(830) Section I. — How it received its name. 

In the Kitdbut-Tibydn it is stated that Shapur I the Sasa- 
nian founded the city and named it Shdd-Shdpicr. One af the 
Sasanians was conducting a campaign against the Daylamis, 
and a battle was taking place in the Plain of Qazwin. The 
general in command, seeing a weak point in his ranks, said to 
one of his officers '^An kdsh vin va rdst kiin^'' ("See that crooked 
thing and put it right"), and the name Kashvin (afterwards 
Qazwin and Qazbin) was afterwards applied to the town. 

Section 2. — Character and buildings of the city. 

The quarter called Shahristan is in the middle of the old 
town built by Shapur, when he fled from Rum to Persia. 
An old fire-temple which once stood by the river is now a 
monastery for qalandars. After the victory which he obtained 
over the Greeks (831), Shapur regarded Qazwin with especial 
veneration, and took great pains to enlarge and beautify 
the city, but his builders were much harrassed by the Day- 
lamites, and Shapur, being occupied with the subjugation of 
the Arabs, was obliged to bribe the Daylamites to keep 
quiet. The building was begun in the month of Aban in the 
year 463 of Alexander, 1178 solar years before the time of 
writing '), the sign of Gemini being in the ascendant. As 

i) This is obviously erroneous, for the Ta'rikh-i-Guzida was completed in 
A. H. 730 (=A.D. 1330), and 1178 years before that would give A. D. 152, 
a century earlier than the reign of Shapdr I the Sasanian. 


soon as Shapiir was freed from other preoccupations, he 
attacked the Daylamites with vigour, subdued them, and 
treated them with the utmost severity, and the persistent 
hostility between them and the people of Qazwi'n dates from 
those days. Introduction of Islam and conquest and enlarge- 
ment of Qazwin by SaM b. al-'^As the Umayyad (832). Qazwin 
again enlarged by the Caliph al-Hadi, who called the city 
Madinata Miisd ("the City of Miisa", Musa being his own name). 
This portion of the present town is now called Sanamak ').

Account of the conquest of Qazwin by the Arabs in the 
Kitdbu' l-Bulddn. Apostacy of inhabitants after first conquest. 
Second conquest by Abu "^Abdi'r-Rahman al-Harithi. Genui- 
neness of their subsequent conversion to Islam. In the author's

Section 6. — Governors of Qazwin. 

In Sasanian times the governors lived at Sarv-badh in the 
summer and at Ray in the winter. In Muhammadan times, 
Abu Dujana Simak (839) b. Kharasha al-Ansarf and Kathi'r 
b. Shihab al-Harithi were governors for the Caliph '^Umar; 
and Sa'^i'd b. al-'^As al-Umawi for '^Uthman. Five successive 
governors (named) represented *^Ali. In Umayyad times Hajjaj 
b. Yusuf, who was governor of most of Persia, appointed 
his son Muhammad; later Yazid b. al-Muhallab, Qutayba b. 
Muslim, and Nasr b. Sayyar appointed governors. In early 
'^Abbasid times the government of Persia was chiefly in the 
hands of the Barmecides [Al-i-Barmak); later came ^Ali b. 
"^Isa b. Mahan and the House of Tahir. In the time of the 
Caliph al-Mu'^tasim, when the Daylamites were again giving 
trouble, the author's ancestor (the fourteenth in line of 
ascent) Fakhru'd-Dawla Abu Mansiir al-Kufi, a descendant 
of Hurr b. Yazid ar-Riyahi, was sent there to command 
the army and administer the province (840) in A. H. 223 
(= A. D. 838), and for nearly 200 years his descendents, all 
of whom bore the title Fakhru'd-Dawla, were entrusted 
with these functions. Thus in A. H. 251 (= A. D. 865) they 


acted for two years for ad-Da*^{ ila'1-Haqq Hasan b. Zayd ') ; 
then for 38 years for Musa b. Buqa, governor of Persia for 
the Caliph al-Mu'tazz. For two years after the rise of the 
Samani power Ilyas b. Ahmad the Samani was governor. In 
A. H. 294 (= A. D. 906 — 7) the Caliph recovered his authority 
and appointed the author's twelfth ancestor in the line of 
ascent,' Fakhru'd-Dawla Abu "^Ali, to this government, which 
he held for 27 years. When in A. H. 321 (=A. D.933) the 
House of Buwayh or Daylam obtained possession of most 
of Persia, the author's ancestors governed in their name for 
100 years. When in A. H. 421 (= A. D. 1030) Sultan Mahmud 
of Ghazna took possession of*^Iraq, the author's ninth ancestor 
Fakhru'd-Dawla Abu Mansur died, and the government of 
^e city passed out of the family, who were charged with 
the duties of state-accountants, and were thenceforth known 
by this title, Mustawfi, which the author still bore. One of 
Sultan Mahmud's courtiers named Karasti was made governor. 
(841) How he caused the people of Qazwin to eat "doubt- 
ful" meat, so that their prayers might no longer be effica- 
cious, then oppressed them, and was finally killed by them, 
after he had been governor for rather more than a year. 
He was succeeded by Hamza b. Alyasa^ previously governor 
of Qum, who ruled for more than two years. After him the 
Amir Abu "^Ali Muhammad Ja'^fari and his sons governed 
for about sixty years. The last of them, Fakhru'l-Ma'^ali 
Dhu's-Sa'^adat Abu *^Ali Sharafshah b. Muhammad b. Ahmad 
b. Muhammad Ja'farf, died in A. H. 484 (= A. D. 1091). 
His yearly income from his extensive estates amounted to 
366,000 dinars in gold. He left one daughter, who lost all 
this immense wealth, and was reduced to penury, so that 
she was obliged to live on the charity of others. Reflections

of Persia, Mangu Qa'an appointed Malik Iftikharu'd-Di'n 
Muhammad al-Bukhari governor (842) in A. H. 65 1 (= A. D. 
1253 — 4), and he and his brother Malik Imamu'd-Din Yahya 
ruled for 27 years. In A. H. 6^] (= A. D. 1278 — 9) the govern- 
ment was given jointly to Husamu'd-Din Amir "^Umar of 
Shiraz and Khwaja Fakhru'd-Din Ahmad Mustawfi. Thence- 
forth, until the end of 'Uljaytu's reign, the government was 
chiefly in the hands of the Iftikharis. Sultan Abu Sa'^id 
Bahadur Khan at the beginning of his reign conferred it on 
the agents of his mother Gunjishkan Khatun to provide 
money for her army. 

Section 7. — Tribes and leading families of Qazwin. 

Many of the leading families are of Arab origin. The fol- 
lowing are the principal ones : 

(i) Sayyids, notable here for their piety and learning. 
Amongst the most eminent were Sayyid Rida; Sayyid 
''Imadu'd-Dfn ^AbduVAzim al-Husayni an-Naqib (843); and 
Sayyid '^Izzu'd-Din Muhammad, a friend of Shaykh Jamalu'd- 
Dfn Gill, one of whose living descendents is the Qadi Say- 
fu'd-Din Muhammad al-Husayni, chief judge of Sultaniyya 
and the district [tiimdn) of Qazwin, Abhar, Zanjan and 

(2) '^Ulamd (doctors of Theology). Praised for their ortho- 
doxy and piety. 

(3) Iftikhdriydn. These are the descendants of Iftikharu'd- 
Din Muhammad Bakri, a descendant of the Caliph Abu Bakr, 
who studied with the Imam Muhammad b. Yahya of Nfshapur. 
His chief living descendent is Malik Iftikharu'd-Din Muham- 
mad b. Abu Nasr, whose accomplishments are enumerated. 
Amongst others he was skilled in the Mongol and Turkish 
languages (844), and his pronouncements on the philology 
of these languages are deemed authoritative by the Mongols. 
He has translated the Book of Kalila and Dimna into Mon- 


golian, and the Book of Sindibdd into Turki. He rose to a 
high position under Mangu Khan, and enriched Qazwin with 
many beautiful buildings. His brother "^Imadu'd-Din Mahrnvid, 
was governor of Mazandaran, and [another brother], Ruk- 
nu'd-Din Ahmad, was ruler {Malik) of Gurjistan. A third 
brother, Radiyyu'd-Din Ahmad, was governor of Diyar Bakr, 
and was a good poet. Later the family fell into poverty. 

(4) Bdzddrdn (Keepers of the Falcons). Their ancestor was 
Baranghash, falconer of the Caliph al-Muqtafi, who made him 
governor of Qazwfn under the title Muzaffaru'd-Dln. 

(5) Bashshdriydn, a wealthy family, to which belonged 
Khwaja *^Izzu'd-Dfn Bashsharf. 

(6) Hulwdniydn, originally from the frontier-town of Hulwan. 

(7) Khdlidiydn, descended from Khalid b. Walld al-Makh- 
ziiml. There are two branches of the family. To the first 
belonged Shaykh Nuru'd-Dfn Gil, ancestor of the Shaykhu'l- 
Islam Sa'^du'd-Din Qutlugh- [? MS. Qatl-] Khwaja; to the second, 
which came from Zanjan, Sadru'd-Dfn Ahmad al-Khalidi, 
who was for two years Prime Minister of Persia, and was 
related to the Sadr-i-Jahan. 

(8) Dabirdn. Of these was Najmu'd-Din ^Ali b. ^Umar (845) 

{9) Rdfi^dn, of Arab origin, descended from Rafi^ b. Khadij 
al-Ansari. From them many learned men of note have arisen. 

(10) Zdkdniydn, also of Arab origin, descended from the 
Banu Khafaja. They have in their possession a document 
(text given) professedly emanating from the Prophet and 
written in *^Alf's handwriting, dated Muharram 7 (year un- 
specified) and (846) witnessed by Abii Bakr, *^Umar, Salman 
al-Farisi and four others of the Companions. Of this family 
also there are two branches, to the first of which, eminent 
in learning, belong Sharafu'd-Dfn "^Umar and his son Ruknu'd- 
Din Muhammad, who vigorously opposed the Shi"^ites in their 
endeavours to win over the Mongols to their interest, jour- 



neying to Khurasan to see the Mongol Amir Jurmaghun and 
dispute with the Shfa doctors in his presence. To the second 
branch, eminent in statesmanship, belonged Safiyyu'd-Din 
Zakani and Nizamu'd-Din "Ubaydu'llah, writer and poet, 
generally known as "^Ubayd-i-Zakani. 

(11) Zubayriydn, descended from Zubayr b. Mus'^ab b. Zu- 
bayr b. al-'^Awwam. 

(12) Zdddniydn, whose ancestor Zadan was a contemporary 
of the Prophet. 

(13) Shirzddiydn, whose ancestor was Shfrzad son of Shiran, 
a middle-class sheep-farmer. His son, Hajji Badru'd-Din, be- 
came rich, and was appointed Ulugh Bitikji of Qazwin by 
Ogoday Qa'an (847). His son, Husamu'd-Din "^Umar, was 
favoured and promoted by Amir Buqa, and was for some 
years governor of Fars. 

(14) Taiisiydn, whose ancestor was Ta'us b. Kaysan. 

(15) '^Abbdsiydn, related to the "^Abbasid Caliphs. 

(16) Ghajfdriydn, of whom was the great Shafi'^i theologian 
Najmu'd-Din '^Abdu'l-Ghafifar, author of the Kitdbul-Hdwi, 
who died Muharram 8, A. H, 665 (= Oct. 9, 1266), and whose 
sons are at the present time leading theologians in Qazwin. 

(17) Qadawiydn, descended from Fakhru'd-Din Fakhr-award, 
who held office in the Diwdn-i-Qadd (Ministry of Justice), 
whence their name. ^ 

(18) Qardwuldn, a Turkish family, who settled at Qazwin 
in Mongol times and became very wealthy. They were cele- 
brated for their beauty. 

(19) Karajiydn, descended from Abu Dulaf al-^Ijli, who 
came to Persia in the time of Harunu'r-Rashid, built the 
city of Karaj, and dwelt there. 

(20) Anasiydn, descended from Anas b. Malik, included 
many learned lawyers and theologians (848), but are now 

(21) Kayd'dn. To this family belonged Mawlana '^Izzu'd- 

236 ^ CHAPTER VI, SECTION 7. *" 

Dfn Abu'l-Fada'il, who went to Tabriz and rendered great 
services in the Khwarazmshahi troubles. 

(22) Mdkdniydn, descended from Makan b. Kaki of Daylam. 
His descendant' Sadidu'd-Din Isma^il b. ^Abdu'l-Jabbar b. Mu- 
hammad b. ^Abdu'l-'^Azfz b. Mak became Qadi of Qazwfn, 
and this office is still in the family. 

(23) Mustawfiydn (the Author's family), descended from 
Hurr ,b. Yazfd ar-Riyahf. (The facts already mentioned about 
them in the Section on the Governors of Qazwin (pp. 231 — 2 
supra) are here repeated in an abridged form). 

(24) Mii'minan. One of them, the late Taju'd-Din Mu'minf, 
was employed by Khwaja Shamsu'd-Din Sdhib Diwdn. In 
later life he repented of the acts of tyranny which he had 
committed and retired to Tabriz. 

(25) Mu^d/d'tydn. Of these was "Abdu'l-MaHk b. Muhammad, 
who was one of the secretaries of Tughril Beg the Seljuq. 
The family is now extinct in Qazwin. 

(26) Marztibdniydn. These inhabit the Dastajird quarter, 
near the Bagh-i-Maydan (849). 

(27) Nisdburiydn. These left Nishapiir, their original home, 
*n A. H. 540 (= A. D. 1 145 — 6), at the time of the great 
earthquake, and amongst those who came to Qazwfn was 
the chief Qadi '^Abdu'r-Razzaq. The family is now extinct 
in Qazwfn. 

(28) Biild Timicriydn, descended from Amir Tukush, whose 
ancestor was Tayang ') Khan, ruler of the Na'iman. Tukush 
was chief magistrate {Shahna) of Qazwfn in the time of 
Ogoday Khan. His son, Bula-Tfmur, from whom the family 
derives its name, became an Amfr and amassed much pro- 
perty, some of which is still in the hands of his son Nusratu'd- 
Dfn Buqa.

Concerning the genealogical trees inserted by Rashidu'd- 
Din in his great history [the Jdmi'ti t-Tawdrikh\. These, in 
spite of their excellence and the originality of the plan on 
which they are constructed, appeared to the Author suscep- 
tible of improvement, and are briefly criticized by him. (850) 
He thesefore devised a new and simplified system of such 
"trees", in which he designed to use various colours as 
indications, which he briefly explains (850 — 851), and so 
ends his book. [The actual trees are wanting in this MS., 
as in most others which I have examined.]

R. A. NICHOLSON, Litt. D. 

(N. B. The abridged translation contained in this volume, 
XIV, 2, does 7iot contain all the names mentioned in the 
text, but since the pages of the original text are indicated 
by thick figures in the body of the translation, these Indices 
will serve for the latter, so far as it goes, as well as for 
the former. As a rule names are given in the Index as 
they occur in the text, without correction, save when the 
correction is obvious. Such corrections are, as a rule, indicated. 
Where several references occur under one heading, the more 
important are generally overlined).
