Why and how did Iranians create a religion that revered this specific monarch of Arabia as their God? Is it just marijuana induced madness?

    Shiism was around for a long time before the Safavids, Iranians adopted it out of contrarianism

      Iranians didn't create it, Iran used to be Sunni for a long time.

      Sunnis are so pathetic

    Because, the idea of king-messiah was an iranian archetype; deifying the monarch started in mesopotamia and of course fused further alongside islam birthing shi'a islam

    remember, most of shia islam was composed by iranian messianic israelites. read Patricia Crone's book on nativist prophets

    Was common in mesopotamia, not started* sorry. Also there were a lot of social and political issues after the rashidun conquest of iran leading to religious revolutions of now mixed iranoarab muslims centered around messianic figures. It is well recorded that Ali refused such worship but it was custom in Khorasan, where he raused his armies, to deify kings. Also look ibto Abu Muslim and other ghulat sects. Crone's book is very good at explaining this as well as Wasserstrom's Between Muslim and israelite

        If I were him I would hate muhammad. Muhammad screwed him over as their clan. and according to sunni hadith muhammad molested his sons as well

    It's got nothing to do with the actual theology, just that two groups of people couldn't agree whether the next caliph should be Mohammed's own son or his son in law, hence the schism over the succession crisis

        Yes but that was developed after the initial schism

          That's bullshit since Islam has no concept of separate spheres for religion and politics

    Used by the Safavids to create a new, national Persian identity to differentiate itself from the T*rkish Ottomans. A blessed thing as it provided a big "Frick you" to the a*abs but i heavily disagreed with the population mixing and transfer, such as importing lowIQ a*ab cleric's and bringing in large amounts of t*rks in north-eastern iran, which they never once belong there.

      >bringing in large amounts of t*rks in north-eastern iran,
      Lmao the absolute state of diaspora. Then again I doubt iranians ate keen to learn of the 4 centuries of turko-mongol dominance before the safavids

        T*rks have ruined the entire area with its unhinged barbarian behavior, only pillaging, raping and destroying everything in sight. They're just the pathetic ruminants from the mongols, in which they should all be deported to. Azeris are nothing more than Turkified persians, and their land up north belong to the persian state.
