The Assassination of Abu Muslim al- Khurasani and its Impact on the Political Developments of the Abbasid Caliphate (in Arabic)

Auther : Hasen M. Al-Naboodah

The paper deals with Abu Jaafar al-Mansur’s personality. I discuss in particular his tyrannical rule and use of power and cruelty rather than dialogue and discussion with his opponents, which had negative repercussions on the future of the abbasid Caliphate and led to the expansion of the rift that separated the center of the Caliphate form the competing regional powers. The paper concludes with the idea that killing al-Khurasani had grave consequences for the Abbasid political system. The assassination was a marked departure from Islamic rule. Which was based on Islamic Jurisprudence rather than rule by absolute power or by taking decisions single handedly or by using assassinations.
