Classnotes-

The Mughal Empire was founded by Babur.  Babur was a great military general.   His grandson, Akbar, took control after his father passed away.  Akbar which means “Greatest One”, ruled from 1556-1605.  Akbar’s military power was the root of his strength.  Just like the Safavids and Ottomans, Akbar equipped his troops with heavy artillery.  He used cannons to take on cities with walls  to expand into the Deccan Plateau area.  He appointed some rajputs (native Indian kings) as officers which helped him turn potential enemies into allies.  This military and political wisdom allowed Akbar to unify a land of around 100 million people, more than all of Europe combined.

Classnotes-

(Mugahl cont.) Akbar was a Muslim who practiced religious freedom.  He abolished taxes on the Hindu pilgrims and the tax on non-Muslims known as the jizya.  He even appointed a Spanish Jesuit to tutor his second son.    He ruled through a bureaucracy of officials.  Everyone could rise to a high office in government including natives Hindus, Muslims and foreigners.  This type of policy allowed for a high quality of government.   The Mughal Empire declined after Babur’s death, because Mughal leaders tried to reduce Hindu power and increase Muslim power.  Over time conflicts between Muslims and Hindus grew, which weakened the Empire.

Teaching Strategies:

Classnotes-

Within the Ottoman Empire, one’s social class was not fixed, and one could move between classes.  Islam was not forced on those conquered by the Ottomans.  Separate religious communities could exist under Ottoman rule, known as Millets, which existed under Ottoman rule, but were largely entirely separate systems allowing them great amounts of autonomy.  Sultans supported and helped the arts expand in the Empire.

 

The Safavids developed differently from their Muslim neighbors.  They switched from Sunni to Shi’a, which gave then a distinct Persian identity which differed from their Sunni Arab neighbors.  The city of Isfahan, in modern day Iran, was made into a great city, and attracted artists and thinkers.

 

The Mughal also witnessed great success.  An example of this is the Taj Mahal, which mixed Persian, Islamic, and Hindi architecture styles.
