Investigating biography and character of Khatun of Bukhara -who has
been the only female ruler (Bukhara Khudat) of Bukhara, and was
challenging at the same time with continuous Arab attacks and
internal competitors- one can find valuable information about political
and social life in Bukhara at that time. Despite its vagueness, the story
of Khatun's romantic relationship with an Arab commander, Sa‘id b.
‘Uthman, which is transmitted to us in a poem, is valuable literary and
historically. Presenting a report of contemporary researchers'
interpretations, and taking into consideration some historical events
and lingual considerations, this article tries to give a new
interpretation of this poem.
