Evolution of the titles of the Shia sect
« on: December 04, 2015, 05:05:05 AM »
Salam,


Here are a group of titles that refer to the twelver Shia. However, not all of these were present at the same time, rather each name is a stage from the stages of the evolution of this sect.


1- Shi`atu-`Ali: Or "Shia" was the first name referring to `Ali's supporters and partisans.
2- Saba'iyyah: Followers of Ibn Saba', the first of the religious Shia sects and the foundation of Madhabi Tashayyu`. Extremist Shia were known by this title at this time.
3- Rafidah: This was the third name, awarded to some of the Shia who abandoned Zayd.
4- Ja`fariyyah: After they abandoned Zayd, they went to his nephew  and in the life of Ja`far his followers/companions were called Ja`fariyyah and he disliked this name.
5- Imamiyyah: This name began to appear when the Shia began to debate between themselves as to whether the Imam is divinely appointed or chosen by the people.
6- Qat`iyyah: A group of Shia were awarded this title after they accepted Musa's death and moved on to his sons.
7- Ithna-`Ashariyyah: The last of their titles which most likely appeared after they claimed their 11th Imam had a son.




I believe these titles were created in this order, you guys are free to comment and say your points of view.

You forgot majoos :D
Before Qazî Mihemed, President of the first kurdish Republic Mahabad was hanged the iranian judge asked:

“last words?”

Qazî: “I thank Allah: even in death he put my shoes above your heads”
