Explanation :

The Ain-i-Akbari or the “Constitution of Akbar”, is a 16th-century detailed document recording the administration of emperor Akbar’s empire, written by Abu’l-Fazl ibn Mubarak.

Badauni (Abd al-Qadir Bada’uni) was a Indo-Persian historian, one of the most important writers on the history of the Mughal period in India. His most important work was the Muntakhab al-tawarikh (“Selection from History”), often called Tarikh-e-Badauni (Badauni’s History), a history of Muslim India containing additional sections on Muslim religious figures, physicians, poets, and scholars. As an orthodox Muslim, he strongly resented the religious practices of Akbar.

Khwaja Nizam-ud-Din Ahmad was a historian of late medieval India. He was Akbar’s Mir Bakhshi. His work, the Tabaqat-i-Akbari, is a comprehensive work on general history covering the time from the Ghaznavids (986-7) up to the 38th year of Akbar’s reign.

Tuzuk-e-Jahangiri or Tuzuk-i-Jahangiri is the autobiography of Mughal Emperor Nur-ud-din Muhammad Jahangir (1569-1627).
