As Vladimir Minorsky wrote, "The name of the Kara@÷i may in fact be connected with that of the famous Mongol tribe, the Kere÷it, who, because of their Christian Nestorian faith, were imagined to be the good people of Prester John" (personal communication).

 History of Iran: Ghaznavid Dynasty
When the Samanid Emir Abu ol-Hasan died in 961 CE and Alptigin's candidate was rejected by the court ministers, he retired from Khurasan (northeastern Iran) to Ghazna, where he ruled as a largely independent sovereign, thus starting the Ghaznavid list in 962 CE.
In 999 CE, the Ghaznavids defeated the Samanids (laying claim to Khurasan) and the Qarakhanids captured Bukhara, the Samanid capital.
From mounds of rubble at the feet of the minarets, however, Italian archaeologists, under the direction of Umberto Scerrato, have rescued impressive evidence of the splendor and glory that once radiated throughout the world from this great capital city.

In Khurasan the Timurids were no more: since 911/1506 the real enemy was Muhammad Shaybam Khan, ruler of the Ozbegs, who were to remain dangerous eastern adversaries of the Safawids at least until the end of the sixteenth century.
Despite the defeat of 918/1512 and the failure of Babur, Isma'il's policy in Khurasan could on the whole be counted a considerable success.
It was no longer the old Turkmen state with Khurasan added on: instead it was something more like Iran as we think of it today, although Shah Isma'il still controlled Iraq, as well as lands in the Caucasus and in the east which Persia later lost.

 Carolina Seminar for Comparative Islamic Studies
Pourjavady articulated a theory that tied the development of early Islamic mysticism to the stylistic resources of the Persian language, especially in the region of Khurasan (now northeastern Iran and western Afghanistan).
While the vocabulary of Arabic became highly refined, especially in distinguishing subtle psychological and emotional conditions, it was only with the lucid and compelling imagery of Persian poetry that the full potential of this vocabulary was developed.
For this reason, he maintained, those Sufis in other regions who succeeded in communicating their insights in lasting literary forms ended up by using the mystical idiom that had been created in Khurasan.
