Reasons for the instability and non--promulgation of Shiism in Andalus
Seyyed Ahmad Reza Khezri, Hossein Khosravi
Abstract:   (2084 Views)
After the dominance of Muslems over Andalus‌, Islamic culture and teachings gradually spread among the people living there, inspite of the existing good opportunity for the spread of other religious thoughts and inclinations. However, Shiism was among those few schools of thought which couldn’t take advantage of that opportunity to promulgate its doctrine.
Andalus, from the time it was captured to the fall of the Umavid Caliphate in Cordoba, was under the influence of the Umavids, mainly trying to follow the policy of ignoring the rights of the Household of the Prophet, infact، the Umavids tried strongly to promulgate the Sunni Schools of thought according to their own views. Having the full support of the Maleki School‌, they could prevent other religious‌, specially Shii, activities.
It was only after the fall of Umayyads when shi'is could find a short opportunity to show their political and cultural power after the establishment of the Hammudi caliphate. The major questions to be dealt with here are: what were the main reasons for the non-promulagation and instability of shiism in Andalus? What were the influence of the programs and policies of the Andalus rulers, specially the Umayyads in this respect?
The writers of the present article try to provide some analy‌tical answere to these two questions with reference to historical sources.
Keywords: Shiism - Andlus, Umayyads - Andalus, Bani Hammud
