The effect of eclectic ideas on longevity and extinction of Barghawata (123-543 AH)
Reza Dashti
Abstract:   (988 Views)
Barghawata were a union of Berbers of the Fareast Maghreb (Moroccan) who from the beginning of the second century first accepted the Ṣufri Kharijites religion, then Barghawata foreign religion rulers spread eclectic ideas among them by using their simplistic thinking and dissatisfaction with the Umayyad Arab rulers. In this regard, Barghawata Berbers accepted claims of their rulers about prophecy, Rajʽa and being saviours, excommunicated other tribes and treated violently with them. This study through the descriptive-analytical method seeks to answer the question of whether Barghawata eclectic ideas influenced the longevity or extinction of their government? Findings indicate that the Barghawata eclectic ideas on one hand caused longevity of the Barghawata government by creating a distinct society from other Berber tribes, creating a spirit of hope for the promised justice, surrendered to the Barghawata government and fought for the ideals. On the other hand, the non-fulfilment of religious promises and violent actions of that government provoked other tribes and neighbour governments against them which in result weakened and destroyed the Barghawata government.
Keywords: Eclectic ideas, Barghawata, Kharijites, Fareast Maghreb (Moroccan).
