Safavid dynasty

Sassanid, Kermanshah was at the peak of its glory. But in the Arab attack suffered great damage. Concurrent with the Afghan attack and the fall of Esfahan, Kermanshah was destroyed due to the Ottoman (Ottoman Empire) invasion. But from the beginning of the 11th century AH. it began to flourish. In order to prevent a probable aggression of the Zangeneh tribe and due to its proximity with Ottoman Empire, the Safavid (Safavid dynasty) ruler paid great attention to this city. But in the Zandieh period upheavals increased, whereas during the Qajar era, Ottoman attacks reduced. Mohammad Ali Mirza in 1221 AH. was seated in kermanshah in order to prevent Ottoman aggression, and Khuzestan also came under his realm. An epigraph of Mohammad Ali Mirza in Taq-e-Bostan has been remained as a relic. When the Hotak (Hotaki dynasty) tribe, under the leadership of Mir Wais Hotak revolted against the Safavid dynasty in 1709, the Ghilzai came into conflicts with their western neighbors. Mir Wais Hotak, an influential Afghan tribal leader and founder of the Hotaki dynasty, had visited the Persian court and studied their military weaknesses. The Afghan tribes (Pashtun tribes) rankled under the ruling Shia (Shia Islam) Safavids because of their continued attempts to convert the Pashtuns from Sunni (Sunni Islam) to Shia Islam. Ewans, Martin (2002) ''Afghanistan: A Short History of Its People and Politics'' HarperCollins, New York, Page 30 ISBN 0-06-050507-9 Spawning Afghan nationalism, Mirwais succeeded in expelling the Safavid Georgian (Georgians) Governor of Kandahar, Gurgin Khan, and assumed the post for himself. His eldest son, Mahmud (Mir Mahmud Hotaki), effected a successful invasion of Persia (now Iran) which culminated in the conquest of Isfahan and the deposition of the Safavid Shah Sultan Husayn. Mahmud was then crowned Shah and ruled for a brief period before being deposed by his own clansmen. His cousin and successor (Ashraf Khan) reigned for nearly five years before being killed by Baloch tribes while fleeing towards Kandahar. The Safavid dynasty in Iran was then restored in the person of Sultan Husayn's only surviving son, Tahmasp II. Biography Saakadze's family (Tarkhan-Mouravi) came of the petty nobility (aznauri). His father, Siaush, rose in prominence through a loyal service to King Simon I (Simon I of Kartli) of Kartli, whom Giorgi joined in military service in his early career. Under the young king Luarsab II (Luarsab II of Kartli), he was appointed a mourav of Tbilisi, Tskhinvali, and Dvaleti in 1608. Saakadze’s influence and prestige especially grew after he destroyed an Ottoman invasion force at the battle of Tashiskari in June 1609, thereby saving Luarsab from being dislodged. In 1611, the king married Saakadze’s sister, Macrine, annoying the great nobles, who grew increasingly suspicious of the ambitious and aspiring officer who had had risen from the ranks of the petty nobility to become the most powerful man in Kartli. The animosity between the two nobles parties centered on the princes P’arsadan Tsitsishvili and Shadiman Baratashvili on one hand, and Saakadze on the other, culminated in May 1612, when a threat to his life led Saakadze to defect to Iran. Having converted to Islam and displayed his military ability in Iran’s war with the Ottomans, he quickly won the confidence of Shah (Safavid dynasty) Abbas I of Iran and was regularly consulted on the Georgian affairs.

Accessed on October 25, 2007. thumb A 19th-century photoreproduction of the 16th-century portrait, presumably, of Giorgi Saakadze (File:Giorgi Saakaze the Grand Mouravi.jpg) Distinction from other Tajiks Like the Persians of Iran, the Farsiwan are often distinguished from other Tajiks by their adherence to Shia Islam (Shia) as opposed to the Sunni sect favored by the majority of Tajiks. However, there are also minor linguistic differences especially among the rural Farsiwan. The Farsiwan sometimes speak a dialect more akin to the ''Darī'' (Dari (Afghanistan)) dialects of the Persian language, for example the dialect of Kabul, Ch. M. Kieffer, "Afghanistan v. - Languages of Afghanistan", in Encyclopaedia Iranica, printed version, p. 507: ''" ... 'Dari' is a term long recommended by Afghan authorities to designate Afghan Persian in contrast to Iranian Persian; a written language common to all educated Afghanis, Dari must not be confused with Kaboli, the dialect of Kabul ... that is more or less understood by more than 80% of the non-Persian speaking population ... " E. H. Glassman, ''“Conversational Dari: An Introductory Course in Dari ( Farsi Persian) as Spoken in Afghanistan”'' (revised edition of “Conversational Kabuli Dari,” with the assistance of M. Taher Porjosh), Kabul (''The Language and Orientation Committee, International Afghan Mission'', P.O. Box 625), 1970-72. as opposed to the standard ''Tehrānī'' dialect of Iran. However, most of the Fārsīwān speak the ''Khorasani (Greater Khorasan)'' dialect, native to the Afghanistan-Iran border region, namely Herāt (Herat) and Farāh (Farah province), as well as the Iranian provinces of Khorasan (Khorasan (Province)). Unlike the Hazara (Hazara people) who are also Persian-speaking and Shia, the Farsiwan do not show any, or very limited traces of Turkic (Turkic peoples) and Mongol ancestry. Library of Congress Country Studies - Afghanistan - ''Farsiwan'' (LINK) Although the Kizilbash of Iran, Afghanistan, and Pakistan (who are descendants of Persian military and administrative forces brought in to control these areas by the Safavid (Safavid dynasty), Mughal (Mughal dynasty), Afsharid (Afsharid dynasty) and Durrani (Durrani dynasty) dynasties) are also Persian-speaking Shias, they are usually regarded as a separate group from the Farsiwan.
