I suggest to stick this theme here and to continue to supplement with new names. Today Tajik youth does not know the famous Tajiks. For example, in Tajikistan many young Tajiks think, that Shah Masoud is Afghan.
Here it is necessary to post names of famousTajiks (historical and modern) and to tell about them a little. Its better to post it with photo.

What do you think?

Ahmad Shah Masud - Tajik Napoleon


Posted Image



Ahmad Shah Massoud (Persian: ??*?? ??? ??? ??) (September 2, 1953 September 9, 2001) was a Kabul University engineering student turned military leader who played a leading role in driving the Soviet army out of Afghanistan, earning him the nickname "Lion of Panjshir". His supporters call him "Amer Sahib e Shaheed", translating to "Our Martyred Commander".

He became Defense Minister of Afghanistan in 1992 under President Burhanuddin Rabbani. Following the collapse of Rabbani's government and the rise of the Taliban regime, Massoud became the military leader of the United Islamic Front for the Salvation of Afghanistan. In September 2001 Massoud was assassinated by al-Qaeda agents, allegedly with the complicity of Abdul Rasul Sayyaf, and the following year he was named "National Hero" by the order of Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai.

Nice topic :)


Ibn S?n? (Persian: ??? ??? ??? * ??? ??? ??? ? ??? ??? ??? ?; c. 980 in Bukhara, Khorasan 1037 in Hamedan[8]), also known as Ibn Seena[9] and commonly known in English by his Latinized name Avicenna (Greek A? ??? ? ??? ?),[10] was a Persian Muslim polymath and foremost physician and philosopher of his time. He was also an astronomer, chemist, Hafiz, logician, mathematician, poet, psychologist, physicist, scientist, Sheikh, soldier, statesman and theologian.[12]
Ibn S?n? wrote almost 450 treatises on a wide range of subjects, of which around 240 have survived. In particular, 150 of his surviving treatises concentrate on philosophy and 40 of them concentrate on medicine His most famous works are The Book of Healing, a vast philosophical and scientific encyclopaedia, and The Canon of Medicine, which was a standard medical text at many Islamic and European universities up until the early 19th century Ibn S?n? developed a medical system that combined his own personal experience with that of Islamic medicine, the medical system of the Greek physician Galen Aristotelian metaphysics, and ancient Persian, Mesopotamian and Indian medicine. He was also the founder of Avicennian logic and the philosophical school of Avicennism, which were influential among both Muslim and Scholastic thinkers.

Al-Biruni



Ab? Ray??n Mu?ammad ibn A?mad al-B?r?n? (September 15, 973 in Kath, Khwarezm December 13, 1048 in Ghazni) was a Persian (T?j?k) Muslim polymath of the 11th century. Biruni was well-known in the Muslim world, but unlike some of his other Muslim contemporaries (such as Abulcasis, Alhacen and Avicenna), Biruni's name was little known in the Western world.

He was a scientist and physicist, an anthropologist and psychologist, an astronomer and astrologer, a chemist, an encyclopedist and historian, a geographer, a geodesist and geologist, a mathematician, a pharmacist and physician, a philosopher and Ash'ari theologian, a scholar and teacher, and a traveller, and he contributed greatly to all of these fields.

He was the first Muslim scholar to study India and the Brahminical tradition, and has been described as the father of Indology, the father of geodesy, and "the first anthropologist". He was also one of the earliest leading exponents of the experimental scientific method, and was responsible for introducing the experimental method into mechanics, the first to conduct elaborate experiments related to astronomical phenomena, and a pioneer of experimental psychology.

George Sarton, the father of the history of science, described Biruni as:

"One of the very greatest scientists of Islam, and, all considered, one of the greatest of all times."

A. I. Sabra desribed Biruni as:

"One of the great scientific minds in all history."

The Al-Biruni crater, on the Moon, is named after Biruni.

Jalaladdini Balkhi (Rumi)

Mawl?n? Jal?l-ad-D?n Muhammad R?m?, also known as Mawl?n? Jal?l-ad-D?n Muhammad Bal?? , but known to the English-speaking world simply as Rumi, (September 30, 1207December 17, 1273), was a 13th century Persian (T?j?k) poet, Islamic jurist, and theologian. Rumi is a descriptive name meaning "the Roman" since he lived most parts of his life in Anatolia which had been part of the Roman Empire until the Seljuq conquest two centuries earlier.[7]

While historical sources claim that he was born in Balkh (Persian: ??? - Bal?), the hometown of his father's family, modern scholars now believe that Rumi was probably born in 1207 CE in Wakhsh (Wa?)[8], a small town located at the river Wakhsh in what is now Tajikistan. Wakhsh belonged to the larger province of Balkh, and in the year Rumi was born, his father was an appointed scholar there. Both these cities were at the time included in the Greater Persian cultural sphere of Khor???n, the easternmost province of historical Persia, and were part of the Khwarezmian Empire.

His birthplace and native language both indicate a Persian heritage. Due to quarrels between different dynasties in Khor???n, opposition to the Khwarizmid Shahs who were considered devious by Bah? ud-D?n W?lad (Rumi's father) or fear of the impending Mongol cataclysm, his father decided to migrate westwards. Rumi's family traveled west, first performing the Hajj and eventually settling in the Anatolian city Konya (capital of the Seljuk Sultanate of Rum, now located in Turkey), where he lived most of his life, composed one of the crowning glories of Persian literature and profoundly affected the culture of the area.

He lived most of his life under the Sultanate of Rum, where he produced his works and died in 1273 CE. He was buried in Konya and his shrine became a place of pilgrimage. Following his death, his followers and his son Sultan Walad founded the Mawlaw?yah Sufi Order, also known as the order of the Whirling Dervishes, famous for its Sufi dance known as the sam?? ceremony.

Rumi's importance is considered to transcend national and ethnic borders. His original works are widely read in the original language across the Persian-speaking world. Translations of his works are very popular in South Asian, Turkic, Arab and Western countries. His poetry has influenced Persian literature as well as Urdu, Bengali and Turkish literatures. His poems have been widely translated into many of the world's languages in various formats, and BBC News has described him as the "most popular poet in America".

Baha-ud-Din Naqshband Bukhari (1318 1389) - the founder of the largest and most influential Sufi Muslim orders, the Naqshbandi


Baha-ud-Din was born in 1318 in the village of Qasr-i-Hinduvan (later renamed Qasr-i Arifan) near Bukhara, and it was there that he died in 1389. Most of his life was spent in Bukhara and contiguous areas of Transoxiana, in keeping with the principle of "journeying within the homeland" (a practise mentioned in "The Sacred Words"),and in Omar Ali-Shah's: "The Rules or Secrets of the Naqshbandi Order", and the only long journeys he undertook were for the performance of hajj on two occasions. He came into early contact with the Khwajagan (lit: the Masters), and was adopted as spiritual progeny by one of them, Baba Muhammad Sammasi, while still an infant. Sammasi was his first guide on the path, and more important was his relationship with Sammasi's principal khalifa (successor), Amir Kulal, the last link in the silsila before Baha-ud-Din. It was Amir Kulal that Baha-ud-Din received his fundamental training on the path and whose company he kept for many years. Still more significant, however, was the instruction Baha-ud-Din received in the method of silent dhikr from the ruhaniya of Abdul Khaliq Gajadwani (ruhaniya refers to an initiation dispensed by the spiritual being of a departed preceptor). Although he was a spiritual descendant of Abdul Khaliq, Amir Kulal practised vocal dhikr, and after Baha-ud-Din received instruction in silent dhikr, he would absent himself from Amir Kulal's circle of followers whenever they engaged in dhikr of the tongue. This separation of Baha-ud-din from Amir Kulal's circle may be thought of as marking the final crystallization of the Naqshbandiya, with silent dhikr, received from Abdul Khaliq and ultimately inherited from Abu Bakr, established as normative for the order, various later deviations nontwithstanding.

Amir Habibull?h Gh?z? - Hero of Khorasan

Amir Habibull?h Gh?z? (born Habibullah Kalak?n?) (c. 1890 October 13, 1929) was a king of Afghanistan in 1929. Habibull?h succeeded Inayat Ullah, who abdicated on January 17, 1929. As an ethnic Tajik, he was and is considered a usurper by the Pashtuns of Afghanistan, since he interrupted the Pashtun Barakzai Dynasty (which resumed upon his death). Among the Pashtuns, he is also referred to as "Bacha-ye Saqqow", which in Persian means "the son of the water-bearer". That was because his father was known to carry water. Among the Tajiks, however, he is still remembered and respected as a rightful king of Afghanistan. Additionally, he is also celebrated by the famous poet Khalilollah Khalili in his masterpiece Hero of Khorasan.

well, bad or good is everywhere and i dont dispute that. actually we should always acknowledge our shortcomings and problems in order to solve it, not turnig a blind eye and assume nothing has happened. what puzles me in case of Rahmanove that he is all the way against the tajiks, he is anti tajik language and puts uzbek before tajik. a bad person can be thief, murdere, greedy etc, but why he will be against his own culture ,ppl and language in favour of the uzbeks?
