Omīd Reḍā’ī. Qabāle-hā-ye pārsī : pardāzeš-e ṣūrī va moḥtavā’ī. Tehrān, Entešārāt-e Osve (Sāzmān-e owqāf va omūr-e ḫeyriyye), 1388/2009, 196 p.
1Like Rezai’s Jostār-hā’ī dar sanad-šenāsī-ye fārsī (see M. Szuppe, Abs. Ir. 29, 2006, n° 206), this volume brings together material first presented in a series of articles published between 1381-1387/2002-2009 in the journal Mīrāṯ-e Jāvedān. It is divided into seven parts and conveniently summarises some of the key findings of Rezai’s remarkably original research over the years on Safavid and Qājār legal documents (asnād-e šarʿī).
2In the first part Rezai looks at four conditions found in deeds of endowment (vaqf-nāme-s) meant to guarantee the perpetuity of the endowment (vaqf). The second part examines the relationship between the main text and marginalia of a Safavid vaqf-nāme from Qazvīn. The third and fourth parts study the way in which Qājār legal documents were registered, archived and annulled at the šarīʿa court of the šayḫ ol-eslām of Šīrāz. Part five looks at how contracts for the performance of religious pilgrimage on someone else’s behalf (ḥajj/zeyārat-e neyābatī) were registered in the court register (ketābče-ye šarʿiyyāt) of Moḥammad Ṣādeq Ṭabāṭabāʾī Sangalajī (d.1300/1883), a Qājār jurist (mojtahed) active in Tehrān. The registration of legal documents is also dealt with in part six, but this time at the šarīʿa court of another Tehrān based mojtahed, Sayyed Esmāʿīl Behbahānī (d. 1295/1878). In part seven, Rezai considers the notarisation of Qājār legal documents in Kordestān.
3The outstanding contribution of this volume is the interesting light it sheds on regional differences in Qājār legal practice. While the registration of documents in the šarīʿa courts of Sangalajī and Behbahānī in Tehrān was similar, it differed from practice followed at the šarīʿa court of the šayḫ ol-eslām of Šīrāz. At the same time the way documents were notarised in Kordestān, a region inhabited mainly by Sunnī Šāfiʿī Kurds, was also different from practice followed in the šarīʿa courts of Twelver Šīʿī mojtaheds in Tehrān and Šīrāz during this period.
