Tarikh-i-Akbari, also known as Tarikh-i-Qandhari, or Muzaffar Nama, the first chronicle of Emperor Akbar's reign is an immensely important source of information on the 16th Century History of India particularly the formative years of his career. Though the major pre-occupation of modern scholars has been with Abul Fazl's Akbar Nama and Badauni's Muntakhab-ut-Tawarikh, it supplements in many ways of the former's works while Farishta in his Gulshan-i-Ibrahimi and Nihawandi in his Maasir-i-Rahimi explicitly acknowledge their indebtedness to it. Tarikh-i-Akbari, compiled by Muhammad Arif Qandhari at the behest of Muzaffar Khan, when completed, was presented to the Khan who conferred a Khilat on him. Arif worked under Bairam Khan and Muzaffar Khan and later he was appointed the diwan of the Sarkar of Punjab on the recommendation of Shaikh-ul-Islam, Maulana Abdullah. Unpretentious narration as the Tarikh-i-Akbari is, it shines not because of the ornamental artificiality of Arif, but because of the greatness of its subject.Tarikh-i-Akbari presents Emperor Akbar changing India while Arif happens to be one of the privileged witnesses.Printed Pages: 315.
