They were regarded as a branch of Bani Asad Arabs who first took up position in a place between Kufah and Hit and were elasping their times by means of animal husbandry and farming. Until, during the Buwayhid’s Muez – ud – dauleh era, Ali ben Mazid could estabilish Mazidian government in above – mentioned areas under the protection of Buwayhids. After Ali, seven other  men  of Mazidians’ house gained access to government and with peaks and valleys, ruled over Mazidian territories.
