In 1402 he captured the Ottoman Sultan Bayezid and he also conquered Syria He put his attention on to campaigns to the east of his quickly acquired and ill-cemented empire. He died in 1405 going on a expedition to China He showed interest in the Sufism a form of Islamic mysticism Timur's son Shahrokh Shah only new how to loose control of western and southern Iran from his beautiful capital at Herat. He made Herat a very beautiful capital. The Qara Qoyunlu (The Black Sheep)/Jahan Shah Mehmed II Ruled the ottoman Empire from 1451 to 1481. Conquered Constantinople by using huge cannons Made Constantinople, which they call Istanbul, new capital.

http://www.naqshbandi.org/ottomans/history.htm Capital of the Ottoman when it was conquered in 1453 by Mehmed II. After Mehmed made population go down he repopulated from other places to the Ottoman Istanbul position in Europe, Africa, and Asia Became the best and greatest trade centers in the world. Jahan The Taj Mahal were commisioned by Jahan The Mughal Empire Symbolises,Stability, Power, and Confidence Jahan built a mausoleum for his wife, Mumtaz There are three very important Muslim Empires with important leaders too. The Ottoman Empire had sultans while the Safavid Empire shahs and the Mughal Empire had Emperors.

I think the most important emperor in the Mughal Empire is Akbar the Great. Akbar was Humayun’s son; he reigned from 1556 to 1605. Babur may have discovered the Mughal Empire but it was during Akbar’s reign that the empire grew. Akbar won against the Hindus and conquered many lands. Akbar also started a new faith called Din-i-llahi. He is described as the glory of the empire. Akbar believed that no single religion, including Islam, had all the answers. Akbar helped unify the empire by inviting the Hindus in there empire and getting rid of the special tax that non-Muslims had to pay. He was remembered as a tolerant leader.

Another important leader is from the Ottoman Empire. Mehmed II ruled from 1451 to 1481 he conquered Constantinople and made it their capital they named it Istanbul. He also conquered Syria and Egypt. Mehmed defeated the Byzantine Empire and turned their church, the Hagia Sophia, into a mosque. During his reign the empire expanded into Europe, Asia, and Africa. Cities in Mecca and Medina accepted Ottoman rules. Mehmed became known as “The Conqueror.”

The last leader that I am going to write about is the Safavid leader named ‘Abbas. ‘Abbas was the greatest leader the Safavid Empire had. He strengthened the military and trained slave boys to be soldiers. ‘Abbas defeated the Uzbeks and took back land from the Ottomans. He encouraged manufacturing of traditional products. People built beautiful mosques for ‘Abbas. ‘Abbas made contributions to the Safavid culture and economy. Three of the greatest Islamic Empires Jahan's period the capital had moved to Red fort in Delhi putting the fort at the heart of Mughal power. Jahan had three lines inscribed there "if there is paradise on earth it is here, it is here" Many strong leaders Mughal http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/islam/history/mughalempire_1.shtml http://www.sscnet.ucla.edu/southasia/History/Mughals/mughals.html Both Safavid and Ottoman Empires declined by threats Encouraged handicraft production and trade Safavid were less market oriented Ignoring rising European threats Workshops produced several products and public works and hired many artisans Peasents were not taken care of Some rulers were more interested in satasfying themselves. Succession problems Central power weakenss Lasted from 1501-1722 State religon was Shi'a Economic strength came from its location on the trade routes He was known as Abbas the Great Lived from 1571-1629 Strengthened the Safavid dynasty Had religous tolerence and gave privileges to Christian groups. Made Esfahan the capital of Persia Removed Ottoman and Uzbek troops from Persian soil Aurangzeb Jahan's son and the last great Mughal Emperor Had his brother killed and had his father imprisoned Ended the religous tolerance policy No longer allowed the Hindu community to live under their laws and customs Made non-Muslims pay special tax Tore down many Hindu temples Under his rule Mughal reached its peak in military power Aurangzeb was the cause of the Mughals' decline because of his intolerance and hostility Safavid
