A REVIEW OF THE HÜRREMIS AND BABEK REVOLUTION IN THE HISTORY OF ISLAM ACCORDING TO LOCAL SOURCES


One of the most important events in the history of Islam is the Hürremis movement. The Hürremis, considered to be the largest religious political movement of the Abbasid era, have left their distinctive mark in the political history of Islam. At a time of increasing political strife in the center of the caliphate, the Hürremis movement expanded further and gained momentum. Taking advantage of the internal turmoil caused by the domination and throne fights, Babek took advantage of this situation and managed to provoke the people against the Arabs. The Hürremi campaign, the main philosophy of Babek, ‘‘claim the land, destroy the wrongdoers and Mazdekilik’’ by taking the poem, the local people's united against the Arabs. With Babek in charge, the Hürremis movement began to grow rapidly and the divisions within the community ceased to exist. "Babek Khurram", who succeeded in defeating the six famous commanders of the Caliph, had turned the hürremism movement into the most fearful rebellion of the time. The main purpose of this research is to examine the religious political dimension of the Hürremis campaign during the Abbasid period within the context of local sources and to reveal its importance in the history of Turkish Islam
