BUKHTU NASSAR بخت نصر
“Nehuchadnezzar.” It is thought by Jalalu ‘d-din that there is a reference to his army taking Jerusalem in the Qur’an, Surah xvii 8, “And when the threat for the last (crime) came (to be inflicted, we sent an enemy) to harm your faces, and to enter the temple as they entered it the first time.” The author of the Qamus says that Bukht is “son,” and Nasser, “an idol,” i.e. “the Son of Nasser.”
