Excerpts from the book of Mirza Taghi Khan Amir Kabir
When the eyes of Mohammad Shah Qajar were closed on this world and one of the most incompetent Qajar kings passed away, Nasser al-Din Mirza, his 16-year-old son, who was acting governor, was living in Tabriz. After the death of Mohammad Shah, most of the Qajar rulers and courtiers, who were not happy with “Mirza Aghasi” and waited for him to fall down like a wolf to rise up to tear him to pieces, disobeyed his orders and put a stick in the wheel of affairs to remove Haji. Mirza Aghasi, who was well aware that he could not deal with so many enemies and conspirators, went to the threshold of Hazrat Abdolazim and sat down and saved his precious life from the return of Naser al-Din Mirza to Tehran and went to Karbala.
The fact is that all the books and articles written about the late Amir are embossed on paper with a praiseworthy vision. He should not be doubted. “Even before he became chancellor, he acted prudently in other positions and never followed Machiavellian ideas in government policy and services and in dealing with the court to maintain his position with the king.”
He wanted to learn a lesson, but he was not Aghazadeh. The plate takes the food of the nobles by the hand. One day the deputy asked his sons a lesson and in response he heard nothing but silence. Mohammad Taqi was whispering in the corners of the answers.
– Taqi, where did you learn?
– While bringing the food of the nobles, I stood behind the door and learned a lesson.
He opened his bag to give a reward, but Taqi burst into tears.
– I do not want a reward, let the teacher teach me too.
It was this intelligence and talent that led the deputy to write to his nephew Isaac years later:
“My son Isaac!
Yesterday, a paper taqi arrived from Karbala, which surprised the audience. Everyone praised and congratulations. Al-Haq “Yakad Zaytha Yazi” is true to the power of its evidence. One of them nodded and praised him, who was actually mocking me. The melon tree of Allah Akbar, the servant should write something like this, sir, he has a place. »
Truth be told, I am jealous of Karbala and I am afraid of his son … In short, this boy is very advanced and makes great laws. Be there until the morning of his government. والسلام. »
His heart wanted a pen. Asked the deputy. The master was late in preparing the pen. Mohammad Taqi had a burning heart, took a pen and wrote a letter to Arbab as follows:
قلت لکلکی الخط لماونی
و لم یطع امری و لازجری
The owner of the lease and you are the one who pays
Claimant of the end of the practice
Faqal Lee Dani and La Tuzani
Even Matthew Ajri without Ajri
(Imaginary conversation with his pen and that he is not “free” to achieve his dreams and …)
The deputy writes to his son: Look at what Mohammad Taqi has punished. I, strangely enough, have not been taught to be a grocer, a scales have taught me!
