Haj Mirza Yahya Imam Juma Khoei was a member of parliament. He had a religious notary public and a valid notary office, where most of the transactions, contracts and marriages of prestigious and big families of Tehran were done. He prepared transaction documents and wrote affidavits and other common documents in his notary office, and then recorded their summaries in special notebooks. These notebooks are called Shar’iyat book.
In the studied collection, a large number of women have somehow been involved in various contracts. This research deals with the characteristics of contracts related to women and the social classes of women mentioned in these books.
At the end of the Qajar period, due to social changes, women were able to enjoy social benefits such as ownership and enjoying the income from it.
