The most important exceptions to this were the houses and the gardens around them. 4 The state-owned land was divided among sipāhī, who fought as cavalry in the army, and were responsible for training and providing a certain number soldiers. The sipāhī were entitled to the tax revenues of a specific region, and a specific amount from the total income generated by the region was granted him for his personal expenditures, which was called kılıç hakkı (the share of sword).
In this context, reʽāyā means the subjects who pay taxes. This definition can be observed clearly in Lütfi Pasha’s elucidation: When a member of the reʽāyā fulfills some useful tasks for the state and deserves tīmār and becomes in this way a sipāhī, he should not show favour to his relatives and to his father. 16 In this sub-classification, merchants could still be considered reʽāyā. e. those subjects whose income is gained from agriculture. ’17 In connection with humorism, Naʽīmā describes the function of the reʽāyā and appears to use the term for peasants: However, when they [the reʽāyā] become like a malfunctioning spleen without any job, they cannot give this money and the treasury becomes empty.
