AMIR AL-UMRA

The word umra is the plural of amir means chiefs, thus amir al-umra means chief of the chiefs. It was a title created by the Safavid ruler, Shah Ismail (d. 930/1524). Imam Abuzar Ali (d. 915/1509) married to Sabira Khatoon, the daughter of Shah Ismail, and he was granted the title of amir al-umra. Imam Murad Mirza (d. 920/1514) was also invested the same title.
