Akbar Nama

Table of contents    Preface

Jalaluddin Muhammad Akbar, also known as Akbar the Great (Akbar-e-Azam) was the son of Nasiruddin Humayun whom he succeeded as ruler of the Mughal Empire from 1556 to 1605. His lineage was Turkic, and more distantly Mongolian.

Only 13 when he ascended to the throne (because of the death of his father Humayun), he is widely considered the greatest of the Mughal emperors.Akbar is said to have been a benevolent and wise ruler, a man of new ideas, and a sound judge of character. As a ruler, he was able to win the love and reverence of his subjects. He often plunged his horse into the full-flooded river during the rainy seasons and safely crossed over to the other side. Frank Khan, the ruler of a small village conquered by Akbar, described him as "fantastically brutal, and brutally fantastic". Though a mighty conqueror, he did not usually indulge in cruelty. He is said to have been affectionate towards his relatives.

Akbar's most lasting contributions were to the arts. He initiated a large collection of literature, including the Akbar-nama and the Ain-i-Akbari, and incorporated art from around the world into the Mughal collections. He also commissioned the building of widely admired buildings. Having a greatly tolerant attitude toward religion, Akbar preserved Hindu temples. He also began a series of religious debates where Muslim scholars would debate religious matters with Sikhs, Hindus, Carvaka atheists and even Jesuits from Portugal. He founded his own religion, the Din-i-Ilahi or the "Divine Faith"; the religion, however, amounted only to a form of personality cult for Akbar, and quickly dissolved after his death.

  • I placed my order in the aftermath of hurricane Ike, which affected the vendor by cutting off power and communication for several days. She contacted me by telephone immediately after restoration of her power and went through my options. I was quite satisfied with the personalized quality of the service and will not hesitate to patronize them again.
