Historical Significance

Zafarnama is the letter, written in Persian, sent by the tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh in 1705 to the Emperor of India, Aurangzeb. The letter is written in exquisite Persianverse. In this letter, Guru Ji reminds Aurangzeb how he had broken their oaths taken. Zafarnama is included in Hikayats and it's the first Hikayat.

Guru Ji states in this letter that in spite of his several sufferings, he had won a moral victory over Aurangzeb, who had broken all his vows and had resorted to deception and lies.  Despite sending a huge army to capture or kill the Guru, the Mughal forces did not succeed in their mission.
