Factors of formation of the Husayniyyah Sect and the grounds for its inclination to ghuluww (holding exaggerated belief about the Imams)
Mansour Dadasnejad, Fazel Garnahzadeh
Abstract:   (1738 Views)
Despite the rationalistic approach of the Zaydis of Yemen, at the turn of the 5th lunar century (11th century CE) a ghuluww-oriented current developed. This current took form after one of the Zaydi Imam called Husayn ibn Qāsim al-`Ayānī had been slain on the basis of his occultation and propounding unfamiliar and exaggerated beliefs about him and was most known as "Husayniyyah". The claims of Husayn ibn Qāsim al-`Ayānī had their effects on the origination of this current, however, the main role should be given to his successors and followers. Preserving the political authority in the al-`Ayānī family, resistance against the opponents of the Zaydi faith, and protecting the relations with certain of political allies are among major motivations of the propounding of the occultation of Husayn ibn Qāsim and holding exaggerated beliefs about him. While the existence of ghuluww-oriented inclinations among certain of Yemeni tribes had intellectually paved the way for development of this current. Having applied a descriptive-analytical approach this study intends to address the causes and effective grounds for development of this sect among the Yemeni Zaydis.
