Abbas Milani. Under his rule Iran revived, and some of Persia's glory in the eyes of the outside world returned. Along with new created regular troops, there continued to exist previous feudal militia in the presence of Shah Abbas I and the major place in this militia was taken by the detachments of kurchies. Military and administrative reforms, at the result of which were created troops and great army of state officers, demanded on material basics. There were existed Isfahan, Yezd, Khorasan, Larican, Mazenderan and other detachments here. The realization of major reforms in troops, creation of the corpus of regular troops – tufengchies (musketeers) and gulams (slaves), implementation of cruel discipline had begun in Safavids court even at the end 80s and the beginning of 90s of the 16th century. Iran - Iran - Shah Ê¿Abbās I: The á¹¢afavids were still faced with the problem of making their empire pay. Neverthless, the reign of Shah Abbas I was essential not only with successful wars and foreign policy, but also internal policy of Shah Abbas I possessed great essence. As a result, his successors tended to be indecisive men, easily dominated by powerful dignitaries among the ShiÊ¿i ulama—whom the shahs themselves had urged to move in large numbers from the shrine cities of Iraq in an attempt to bolster á¹¢afavid legitimacy as an orthodox ShiÊ¿i dynasty. Naturally, this caused to the disagreement of the last ones. The á¹¢afavids were still faced with the problem of making their empire pay.

Major assistants of Shah Abbas I were vezir Hatim-bey Ordubadi, then his son and heir in this post, Abu-Talibey. He also began radical reforms in all spheres of state building, which strengthened his state, restored the power of the Safavids and earned him the nickname «the great». The silk trade, over which the government held a monopoly, was a primary source of revenue. The last one possessed secondary position in the state till the end of the 15th century. Small tribal top, which occupied high positions in the state exploited not only the settled population, but also the ordinary members of their own tribes. When Shah Abbas I came to Safavids throne, the social confrontation of kizilbash tribes had been deepened. During the campaign they marched beyond the artillery, but in the battle they fought with pedestrians. Abbas I protected kurchies and directed them to implement various missions/errands, they brought salary from state Treasury, but nevertheless the essence of kurchies declined at the result of military reforms of Shah. He also gave new weapons to the army to make them better fighters. The pillar of Safavids authority – kizilbash tribes were the obstacle on the way of central power. With the later erosion of á¹¢afavid central political authority in the mid-17th century, the power of the ShiÊ¿i clergy in civil affairs—as judges, administrators, and court functionaries—began to grow, in a way unprecedented in the history of the ShiÊ¿ah. Safavids court implemented measures on the strengthening of central machinery of state and the centralization of political authority in the country along with realizing the military reform. After KarÄ«m Khan’s death in 1779, Āghā Muḥammad Khan escaped to the Qājār tribal country in the north, gathered a large force, and embarked on a war of conquest.

There was not only strengthened the central machinery of state, but also changed the administrative division of the state. As a result, industry and art flourished. Even after the reform of Shah Abbas I, there continued to be local machinery of state under the subordination of beylerbey, which reminded central machinery of state. We should mention that the admisitrative reform of Shah Abbas was incompleted as his central policy. He punished corruption severely and promoted only officials who proved their competence and loyalty. Instead, he instituted the practice of immuring infant princes in palace gardens away from the promptings of intrigue and the world at large. The silk trade, over which the government held a monopoly, was a primary source of revenue. He equipped both of these armies with modern artillery.

But the regular detachments, provided with tufengs, were created only in the first years of the reign of Shah Abbas I (in 1593), when the Shah sent his troops, commanded by Farhad khan Karshanlu in order to neutralize the revolt of Ahmed khan, the governor of Gilan. Alternative Title: Ê¿Abbās the Great Ê¿Abbās I, byname Ê¿Abbās the Great, (born Jan. 27, 1571—died Jan. 19, 1629), shah of Persia from 1588 to 1629, who strengthened the Safavid dynasty by expelling Ottoman and Uzbek troops from Persian soil and by creating a standing army.

Administrative reform began to be realized at the beginning of Shah Abbas’s coming to the throne. Internal Reforms. Most of the shared lands were temporary and conditional (in the type of European benefice) ones. It had been divided into different factions by the Qizilbash army. When Shah Abbas I came to the throne in 1587 (he was called the “Great” later), the internal situation of Safavids state was hard as the foreign political circumstances. Major part of all land possessions was constituted by state and Shah lands; so that, according to Muslim law, supreme owner of all lands was state and Shah. The population of western and eastern regions had been ruined and captivated by both Ottomans and Uzbeks. He took advantage of the weakness of the Russians after the death of Ivan the Terrible in 1584 and secured for Persia the provinces on three sides of the Caspian Sea whose rulers had been depending for protection upon the power of Russia.

Abbas the Great or Abbas I of Persia (Persian: شاه عباس بزرگ‎; 27 January 1571 – 19 January 1629) was the 5th Safavid Shah (king) of Iran, and is generally considered as one of the greatest rulers of Persian history and the Safavid dynasty. Tufengchies were provided with weapons, swards and sabres. Then, there were directed the detachments of gunners-casters, who prepared new guns under the walls of the besieged fortress. Shah Abbas realized that in order to retain absolute control over his empire without antagonizing the Qizilbash, he needed to create reforms that reduced the dependency that the shah had on their military support. There was gained decisive victory over Uzbeks near Herat in 1597-1598s. There were regional vezirs and heads of finance – mustohfi, who had to control the regular collection of taxes here. Abbas was born on December 20, 1633 in the Safavid capital of Isfahan. Shah Abbas II of the Safavid Empire of Iran was the shining light in a period of decline for the Safavids. Jubilation was short-lived, however, as the country quickly turned into a battlefield between British, German, Russian, and Turkish forces. Muḥammad KarÄ«m Khan Zand entered into an alliance with the BakhtyārÄ« chief Ê¿AlÄ« Mardān Khan in an effort to seize Eá¹£fahān—then the political centre of Iran—from Shah Rokh’s vassal, AbÅ« al-Fatḥ BakhtyārÄ«.

By the vehicle of these troops the uprising of Alikhan was suppressed. Under Ê¿Abbās, Iran prospered. The keeping of provincial forces, which were the feudal militia, showed that the military reform of Shah Abbas did not complete entirely. One faction felt that the only sound source of legal interpretation was the direct teachings of the 12 infallible imams, in the form of their written and oral testaments (Arabic akhbār, hence the name of the sect: the Akhbāriyyah). The shah … Safavids Shahs did their best to strengthen the central authority before Shah Abbas as well. The second measure, done by Shah Abbas I was the creation of the corpus of gulams (kullar) – personal Guards of the Shah, which consisted of 12 thousand men. Regular parts, as A.Rahmani mentioned, were created according to territorial sign. After Nādr had cleared the country of Afghans, Ṭahmāsp made him governor of a large area of eastern Iran. After eliminating the Uzbek menace from east of the Caspian Sea in 1598–99, Ê¿Abbās could move his capital south to Eá¹£fahān, more centrally placed than QazvÄ«n for control over the whole country and for communication with the trade outlets of the Persian Gulf. Even in the spring of that year Shah Abbas decided to realize campaign to Khorasan, taking into account the chaos inside of Uzbek state at the result of change of the dynasty and ordered to collect 10 thousand tufengchies, which was done.

After suspecting his son of complicity in a plot against him in 1741, Nādir Shah’s mind seems to have become unhinged; his brilliance and courage deteriorated into a meanness and capricious cruelty that could no longer be tolerated. During the appointment of beylerbeys, Shah Abbas I had to take into account the traditions and pretends of part of kizilbash nobility, which preserved their devotion to Safavids. There occurred popular uprisings in different parts of Safavids state in the 70-80s of the 16th century; in 1571-1573, there happened antifeudal uprising of craftsmen and the poverty of city in Tabriz, in 1577, there began uprising in Shirvan, in 1580, there occurred peasant uprisings in Talish, Gilan, Khorasan. The number and size of mulks were reduced. This rising legalism also facilitated the implementation of a theory that was first voiced in the mid-16th century by the scholars Ê¿AlÄ« al-KarakÄ« and Zayn al-DÄ«n al-ʿĀmilÄ«, which called for the clergy to act as a general representative (nāʾib al-Ê¿amm) of the Hidden Imam during his absence, performing such duties as administering the poor tax (zakāt) and income tax (khums, “one-fifth”), leading prayer, and running SharÄ«Ê¿ah courts. The study of legal theory (fiqh), the purview of the mujtahids, became the primary field of scholarship in the ShiÊ¿i world, and the rise of the mujtahids as a distinctive body signaled the development of a politically conscious and influential religious class not previously seen in Islamic history.
