Hossein Moftakhari, Habib Sharafi Safa , Farahnaz Kohan
Abstract:   (1038 Views)
Historically, Hamedan has welcomed various ethnic and religious groups, and the sufis are among the oldest of such groups. In Qajar era, the city, because of its natural and geographical position in western Iran, and proximity to communication routes, has attracted Sufi groups. Sufi population growth during this era and their extended activities led to some splits and encounters with other groups, although many of the events related to this group
during this period were influenced by the policies of the Qajar rulers and local ruling families.
Therefore, in this paper, the authors are trying to study the position of Sufism during the Qajar era in Hamadan and its specifications using a descriptive and analytical approach. The findings of the research indicate that Sufism and Sufi cults in Hamadan during this period, in spite of some events, experienced one of their booming periods, which shows that the increased population and influence of Sufis in this epoch reflects the same fact.
