Gul agha Icon : (03 May 2013 - 04:29 PM) Sohrab, Tajikam doesn't only consist of a forum. We have two major sections in this website. One is in Persian which is updated frequently and the other is in Persian (Cyrillic). Additionally, the English page is still running and has a vast amount of information on Tajiks and Persians.

  1. In Topic: Baba Ghafurov - Tajik historian

    Posted 10 Dec 2007

    Salom dear Tajik brothers and sisters!
    Since this thread started with the search for the meaning of the word Tajik, I wish to add my own two cents.
    As a student of history, I can give you few possible theories about the etymology of the word Tajik. But I must warn you that unfortunately, Bobojon Ghafurov's ability to write about our history was severely under control, so he could not actually write everything he wanted to, whether or not he had the right information.

    One possible meaning of the word Tajik comes from our word for "the crown", that is to say toj, which would refer to the hats worn by our ancestors who lived in the lands of Sogdiana (Sughuda/Sughd) and Baktria (Bakhtar/Balkh). The hats looked like crowns and so the people came to be known as "those who wear crowns"

    Another possible meaning of the word Tajik comes from the name that the Arabs gave to all Persian speaking people beyond the Amu Darya. The Arabs met the Turkic speaking people of Central Asia, and then later met the other major ethnic group, the Tajiks. For the conquering musulman armies, there were only two ethnic groups beyond the river (Mawara-un-ahr), the Turks and Tajiks. For them, the name Tajik sounded very much like one of the important Arab clans, but you can be certain that the word itself did not come from the Arabic; they only realized that there were two different people in Mawaraunahr, the name of one of whom sounded very much like on of the Arabic clans, and the word for Turk already was familiar for them.

    We should all realize one thing, and that is today unfortunately there is no defenite record left which could help us trace the word Tajik. During the Soviet Union, a lot of books were "lost", which would allow the new generation of Tajiks understand about their roots, but that was counter to the policy of the government at the time.
