The emigration of these dynasties to the Mughal Empire (Gurkanis) real along with their numerous political and social experiences were naturally the source of considerable influence in various fields in India. Among these families was the Zik Family. This family, which had a brilliant record of military and political service during the reign of King Abbas I, was angered by Safavid court and was forced to leave Iran and seek refuge in the Mughal court.
Employing a library technique and descriptive-analytical research method, the present study makes attempts to answer this question: what role did the Zik family play in the Indian Mughal era?
