TL;DR: The role of music and musicians in Nizami's poetry is explored in this article, where the authors demonstrate the supernatural potency of music in the first part of Iskandar-nāmah.
Abstract: There is an episode in the Iqbāl-nāmah, the first part of Iskandar-nāmah, that raises the question of the role of music and musicians in Nizami’s poetry. In the section entitled “Plato’s Music Making,” the philosophers of Alexander’s court are vying for superiority, and the competition intensifies between Aristotle and Plato. Plato becomes so indignant at Aristotle’s claim to superiority over all the other philosophers that he leaves the court in search of the music of the universe. In doing so he invents the organun (arghanon) with which he is able to make other beings, human or animal, sleepy or alert, or induce whatever mood in them that he desires. When Aristotle hears of Plato’s invention he strives to match his creativeness, and although he is able to induce sleep in his subjects, he is unable to wake them up. Aristotle feels humiliated. He confesses his own shortcomings, apologizes to Plato for his arrogance, and seeks his guidance on the science of music.2 In this episode Nizami demonstrates the supernatural potency of music and its superiority to logic—a quality that might be extended to include Nizami’s own art, that is, poetry, since it, too, is often characterized as appealing to the emotions rather than to reason.

TL;DR: In this article, an analysis of the concept of the "ministry" (wizaa) in the Arabic/Islamic political tradition is presented, based on Arabic narrative sources such as historical chronicles, collections of the official documents of modern Arabic states, and the lists of its chief magistrates.
Abstract: The paper presents the results of an analysis of the term “ministry” ( wizāra ) as one of the pivotal concepts in the Arabic/Islamic political tradition. The ministry as key political/administrative institution in the Arabic/Islamic traditional state machinery is researched from a historical/institutional perspective. The concept of ministry is treated from the point of its origin and historical development, as well as its changeable role and meaning in the variable Arabic political system. The paper is primarily dedicated to the investigation of the realization of the concept of ministry and its different types and branches in the Arabic language through the etymological and semantic examination of the terms used to denote this institution during the long period of administrative development of the Arabic world from its establishment as such and during the inception of the ʿAbbāsid caliphate to its usage in administrative apparatus of modern Arab states. The paper is based on Arabic narrative sources such as historical chronicles, collections of the official documents of modern Arabic states, and the lists of its chief magistrates (with special reference to government composition and structure).
