(p.40) 3 The Herat Triumvirate: Jami, Bayqara, Navaʾi

Hamid Algar

Oxford University Press

This chapter focuses on Jami’s associations with the monarch, Sultan Husayn Bayqara and the statesman and poet, ʿAli-shir Navaʾi. Jami’s association with Bayqara began at the very outset of his reign when, together with Navaʾi, he dissuaded him from having the names of the Four Caliphs removed from the Friday sermon. Jami’s primary purpose in associating with Bayqara was comparable to that of Ahrar in dealing with the Timurids of Transoxiana: interceding with rulers on behalf of the ruled. Closer and more intimate than Jami’s relations with Bayqara were his links to Navaʾi, the third member of what has been called the Herat triumvirate. On occasion, Navaʾi served Jami as an effective and sympathetic intermediary with Bayqara, but more importantly, he was both his pupil and his consultant in all matters literary.

Keywords:   ʿAbd al-Rahman Jami, Sultan Husayn Bayqara, ʿAli-shir Navaʾi
