Abdurakhim-biy (1697-1733) - the second ruler of the Uzbek Ming dynasty in the Kokand Khanate, ruling since 1722. Abdurakhim-biy was the eldest son of Shakhrukh-biy, who ascended the throne after the death of his father.

During the era of his reign, Khujand and Andijan became part of the Kokand Khanate. At first, Abdurakhim-biy tried to subdue Khujand peacefully, but the ruler of the city Akbuta-biy from the Uzbek clan "Yuz" refused to negotiate peacefully and soon died.

Abdrakhim-biy was the first of the Uzbek rulers of the “Ming” clan and called himself “Sakhibkiran”, imitating Amir Timur. Further, Abdurakhim-biy tried to subjugate Samarkand and made an alliance with the rulers of Shakhrisabz from the Uzbek clan Kenagas. In 1732, Abdurakhim-biy managed to capture Samarkand.

Kokand finally became the capital of the state. A new fortress was built here and large-scale landscaping work was carried out.

However, in 1734, as a result of a conspiracy, he was killed and power in the state passed to his brother Abdukarim-biy, who was under the influence of the Ashtarkhanids.
