Ali Nazemianfard
Abstract:   (2004 Views)
After establishing their rule, the Abbasids tried to employ the skills and experiences of the people who lived in their territory after the victory. In these circumstances, there were some non-Muslims who made a treaty with the Islamic state under the title of Ahl al-Dimma, and was able play a role in the Abbasid Caliphate by their skills. Are there any obstacles for Abbasids to employ them for the administrative affairs? How could they resolve the obstacles? The Findings of the current research, which uses a descriptive and analytic method show that although the objects of the Islamic scholars for employing Dhimmis in administrative sections was in contradiction with the caliphate practical needs, the Abbasid caliphs ignored the scholars’ opinions and tried to employ them for benefitting from their skills and taking the political scene out of the hands of the scholars.
