Sulayman's complaint regarding his wife's share of inheritance, 1919
Sulayman (the son of Haji Baba Muhammad’uf), the merchant of Russian nationality and resident of Istanbul, writes to the Russian consulate in Tabriz regarding the breach of his late wife (Sughra Khanum)’s right of inheritance. The inheritance of Najaf Muhammad’uf (Sughra Khanum’s father) was divided among his other children, Muhsin, Mahmud, and Sariyah Khanum, as well as Haji Javad, Sariyah Khanum’s husband and the executor of her will. Sulayman states that Sughra Khanum, the eldest child of Najaf Muhammad’uf, died in Istanbul, leaving him as her lawful inheritor. He has emphasized that Najaf Muhammad’uf’s heirs could not divide his properties among themselves without considering Sughra Khanum’s share and that he is petitioning for all his rights. He requests that seven copies be made of this petition to be handed over to all parties involved: Mashhadi Najaf’s inheritors; Haji Javad Aqa Muhammad’uf and other inheritors of Haji ‘Ali Akbar Aqa; Aqa Riza Bayg Muhammad’uf; Aqa Hasan of Ganjah; Haji Baba Aqa Muhammad’uf; the writer, Sulayman; and a copy to be kept by the consulate.
