S̲h̲emʿī

(753 words)

Author(s): Bruijn, J.T.P. de
pseudonyme ( tak̲h̲alluṣ) d’un traducteur et commentateur turc d’ouvrages en persan de la seconde moitié du Xe/XVIe siècle. Dans ses propres ouvrages comme dans la plupart des sources biographiques, seul ce nom est mentionné. B. Dorn, citant «deux manuscrits» de Ḥād̲j̲d̲j̲ī Ḵh̲alīfa, affirme que son nom exact était Muṣṭafā Darwīs̲h̲. Le nom de ShemʿAllāh Perzerīnī que lui attribue Bursali̊ Meḥmed Ṭāhir est encore plus sujet à caution. Il y a peut-être confusion avec un autre S̲h̲emʿī, poète ṣūfī de Prizren [ q.v.] ou Perzerīn, qui appartenait à la tradition mystique de S̲h̲e…

Author(s): Bruijn, J.T.P. de
, Abū l-Ḳasim Ḥasan b. Aḥmad, poète persan de la cour g̲h̲āznavide, au début du Ve/XIe siècle. Les renseignements extérieurs sur sa vie sont avant tout anecdotiques. On dit qu’il naquit à Balk̲h̲. et qu’il fut orphelin dès son jeune âge; il gagnait sa vie en tant que marchand dans sa jeunesse. L’histoire, rapportée par certaines sources, selon laquelle il aurait été associé à une histoire de vol, lors de l’un de ses voyages, lui a été attribuée à tort (cf. Storey-de Blois, V/1, 234-5). Il débuta sa carrière de p…

, ou Nūr al-dīn Muḥammad al-S̲h̲āhd̲j̲ahānābādī, traditionniste et historiographe de l’Inde mug̲h̲ale, qui vivait au XIe/XVIIe siècle. Son surnom d’al-Turk al-Buk̲h̲ārī est une allusion au fait qu’il était originaire de l’Asie Centrale. Comme poète, il avait pour pseudonyme Mas̲h̲riḳī. Il était le fils de ʿAbd al-Ḥaḳḳ [ q.v.] al-Dihlawī, un s̲h̲ayk̲h̲ bien connu de la confrérie des Ḳādiriyya. Nūr al-Ḥaḳḳ lui succéda comme professeur de religion et fut nommé juge à Agra sous le règne de S̲h̲āh Ḏj̲ahān. Il mourut à Dihlī en 1073/1662. Dans la Zubdat al-tawārīk̲h̲, Nūr al-Ḥaḳḳ a comp…

(425 words)

Author(s): Bruijn, J.T.P. de
(p.), terme dérivé d’un adjectif provenant de la racine iranienne commune nāman- «nom». Dès le moyen persan, on rencontre aussi la forme nāmag comme substantif désignant une inscription, une lettre ou un livre. Dans la graphie du pehlevi, le mot pouvait être écrit soit phonémiquement, nʾmkʾ, ou au moyen de l’un de ces deux hétérographes: S̲H̲M-k’, fondé sur le mot sémitique désignant le «nom», ou MGLTʾ, c’est-à-dire l’araméen megilleta «rouleau» (cf. Koehler et W. Baumgartner, Lexicon in Veteris Testamentis libros, Leyde 1953, 1091). Il figure aussi dans des composés, en ¶ particulie…

Comme dans le Hūs̲h̲ang-nāma, le Ṭahmūrat̲h̲-nāma et la Kiṣṣa-i Ḏj̲ams̲h̲īd, le récit se place dans la plus ancienne période de l’histoire légendaire de l’Iran, celle des Pīs̲h̲dādīyān, et le héros central en est Ḳahramān, surnommé Ḳātil, le tueur; ce nom est, en fait, un nom commun, forme …

Already in Middle Persian the form nāmag can be ¶ found also as a substantive referring to an inscription, a letter or a book. In the orthography of Pahlavī, the word could be written either phonemically, as n’mk’, or by means of any of two heterographs: S̲H̲M-k’, which was based on the Semitic word for “name”, and MGLT’, i.e. the Aramaic m e gill e ta , “scroll” (cf.

, Mad̲j̲d al-Dīn Abu ’l-Ḥasan , a Persian poet of the second half of the 4th/10th century. In some later sources his kunya is given as Abū Isḥāḳ, but the form given above can be found already in an early source like the Čahār makāla .

(a.), the name of apoem written in rhyming couplets. 1. In Arabic literature, see muzdawid̲j̲ . 2. In Persian. According to the prosodist S̲h̲ams-i-Ḳays (7th/13th ¶ century), the name refers to “a poem based on independent, internally rhyming lines ( abyāt-i mustaḳill-i muṣarraʿ ).

Tehran 1338/1959, 418f.). The fir…
