Purpose: The purpose of this research is to study one of the financial terms used in the Safavid Era based on the content of records kept in the Documents Center of Astan Quds Razavi and to assess the information value of these records. So far, there has not been any independent research on allowance (Vazifeh) in the Safavid Era. This research aims to particularly study the paying of allowance to children and the elderly using the information of records in Astan Quds which are about financial payments to different people.
Methodology/Approach: This research is based on information in records. Various aspects of the importance of records are shown by explaining their features. Library resources are also used to confirm or reject the information in records.
Findings/Conclusions: The findings of this research show that previously only the general aspects of allowances were discussed and details such as the reasons for paying allowances, how they were paid and their amount was not studied. This study makes us familiar with records about a specific type of allowance and new viewpoints about financial terms of the Safavid Era. It also paves the way for further research in this field.
