Provides the literary context of the Ẓafar-Nāmah, its situation within the Dasam Granth, and its place among other texts with which it is generally associated in early and contemporary Sikh historiography such as the little-known Fatḥ -nāmah (Letter of Victory) attributed to the tenth Guru and the Ḥikāyats (Stories), which some scholars believe form the epistle’s appendix.

Keywords:   Ẓafar-nāmah, zafar-nama, sikh, dasam granth, fa ṭ h-nāmah, Ḥ ikāyats, sikh
