The Ta’rikh al-Mawsil by Abu Zakariya Al - Azdi (d. 945 A.D./334 A.H.)  is one of the most important sources on the history of Mosul for  the years (719-838 A.D/101-224 A.H.)and a general history of the  Islamic empire, with some stress on internal affairs, and some biographical information on prominent Jazirans. Unfortunately, the only available manuscript saved in Chester Beatty library is full of mistakes and distortions . The aim of this research is to examine the errors and defections in Al-Azdi’s book, by examining his version in the light  of Khalifa b. Khayyata’s (d. 854-855 A.D./240 A.H.)   especially narratives on the Umayyad dynasty, and comparing it with the original text, Ta’rikh of Khalifa b. Khayyata. In this regard, we needed to look back at both the MS of Alazdi and the narratives of of Khalifa in the light of other sources like Ansāb al-Ashrāf, al-Baladhuri(d. 892 A.D./279 A.H.) and Ta’rikh madinat Dimashq for Ibn ‘Asakir (d. 1176 A.D./571 A.H.) to find out the defections in Al-Azdi’s book.
Key words:Abu Zakariya Al– Azdi, Ta’rikh al-Mawsil, Khalifa b. Khayyata,   Ta’rikh Khalifa b. Khayyata,  Mosul

This paper aims at shedding lights on the Iltizam system (Tax farming). It was one of the most important ways that pursued by the Ottoman Empire. The beginning of the advent of the multazims (tax-farmers) can be traced back to the fiefs-owners (Timar and  Za'amāts or chieftainships). The real motive behind Ottoman Empire's expansion of the Iltizam system was its burning desire to obtain a lot of money and revenue with the least possible of administrative expenditures because of many crises that faced the Ottoman Empire such as financial deficits that accompanied by inflation. Multazims in their turn were paying some amounts in advance to the  state's treasury by instalments during the year. Finally, this paper comes to many conclusions, the most important of them is that the tax legislation was basing on Muslim sacred law (sharia), and the state forced to adopt the Iltizam system because of the political and economic circumstances at the time.
