Investigating the possibility of some Arabs following Mazdakism in the pre-Islamic period
Mohammadhadi Tavakoli
Abstract:   (714 Views)
Ibn al-Kalbī in the Mathālib al-'Arab reports the emergence of Zindīq among Qurayshs while introducing the religions existing among Arab tribes and states that the Christians of al-Hirah taught the Zindīq to the Qurayshs’ merchants. He also mentioned the names of the Zindīqs of Quraysh. According to the historical evidence of using Zindīq in the meaning of Mazdakism, the question of this article is whether the Zindīq that Ibn al-Kalbī talked about its prevalence among Quraysh can mean Mazdakism or not? Therefore, with a historical approach and a library method has tried to discover the evidence of the presence of Mazdakism in Saudi Arabia. The accuracy of al-Kalbī's report and the analysis of the library evidence indicate that the mentioned Zindīq does not mean Mazdakism and to understand the meaning of the Zindīq reported by Ibn al-Kalbī other possibilities should be considered.
Keywords: Mazdakism, The Age of Ignorance ( jāhilīyah), Al-Hirah, Zindīq, Manichaeism.
