Jahan Khanum's claim to her share of inheritance, 1901-1904
In 1901 or 1902, Muhammad Mirza (originally from Yerevan and a resident of Sanandaj) writes in his will while in Karbalaʼ and on his way to pilgrimage to Mecca, declaring that part of his property should be sent to ʻAtabat. After his death, Jahan Khanum from Kurdistan asks for her share of the inheritance, claiming that she is his only inheritor, but this claim needs to be proven in the presence of a religious judge. The item includes documents such as Muhammad Riza’s will, the division of his property, a copy of a document acknowledging Jahan Khanum as an inheritor, Muhammad Mirza’s wives’ calls for justice, Jahan Khanum’s petition, etc.
