From a slave to a successful figure who left an imprint in history, this is the story of the owner of Amber, the poor Abyssinian boy who was sold by his parents in the slave market because of poverty, and later became a symbol for an entire generation.
Malik was born in Harar (a city in eastern Ethiopia) in 1548, when his parents named him Waku Chabu at birth. The FB website publishedfb) Russian report reviewed his story.
In early childhood, this child was distinguished from his peers by his wit, intelligence and love of science, but harsh conditions and extreme poverty forced Waco’s parents to sell him in the slave market, where someone bought him and took him to India. The masters of this boy changed 3 times, and several times he crossed the Indian Ocean in a small boat.
After one of Waco’s owners convinced him to convert to Islam, the new boy’s name became Amber. After moving from one master to another, Amber found himself in Baghdad with Mir Qasim al-Baghdadi – his new owner – who was impressed by his acumen and intelligence and decided to teach him instead of forcing him to do manual work.
In 1575, Amber, accompanied by his master, arrived in India and was admired by Indian Prime Minister Genghis – who is of Ethiopian descent – so he decided to include Amber in his entourage. With his distinctive personal qualities and intelligence, Amber helped the slaves in the Deccan Plateau, which was living on the impact of fateful historical events.
Genghis treated Amber as a father treated his son and taught him leadership skills and how to manage the wheels of the state. After the death of his patron, wealth and power became in the hands of Amber, who collected African slaves to teach them the art of war and built an army of about 1,500 soldiers. Thanks to his cunning and leadership skills, Amber has earned the title of Mr. In 1590, Amber returned to Ahmednagar and lived in the house of Genghis.
His war against the Mongols
The thriving Mughal Empire of the 16th century was another test for the owner of Amber, who led a war against the Mongols, ignoring their numerical superiority, as his soldiers set up ambushes using guerrilla tactics and maneuvers. And Amber managed to control the city of Ahmed Najr and other lands adjacent to it.
Malik Anbar, thanks to his cunning and political shrewdness, was able to gain popularity among the people, but this was not enough to reach power. Amber learned that the last surviving heir of the ruler, Murtaza Nizam Shah II, had been killed by the Mughals. Murtaza was known to have weak will, so he took over the administration of state affairs on his behalf.
Amber’s ambitions were even greater, so he married the daughter of Murtaza Nizam Shah II to consolidate his influence. In 1610, Murtaza and several generals plotted to kill Amber, but his wife informed him of what was happening behind his back. In response, Amber poisoned the conspirators and handed the throne to Murtaza’s son, who was at the time 5 years old. As such, Amber remained the de facto unofficial ruler of the country.
To protect the country from the Mongols, Malik Amber built fortresses and founded a new capital, Aurangabad. This city still exists today and contains many tourist attractions and cultural heritage sites.
Administrative and military activities
In the early 17th century, the Mughal Empire posed a major threat that forced Malik Amber to launch hostilities. During the peaceful years, the dormitory developed the trade, science and arts sector, and built mosques, palaces and other facilities.
And when the truce with the Mongols was violated, Amber acted cunningly and used all his war expertise and again launched a guerrilla war that the Mongols were not ready for. His strategy was to lure enemies into his lands, besiege them, and destroy their supply lines.
Malik Amber died in 1626 at the age of 78. The position of prime minister was assigned to his son, who lacked the qualities that distinguished his father, including iron will and political shrewdness.
