Research/Original Article (دارای رتبه معتبر)

The present study explains the causes of the intellectual changes of Ahl-e Haqq from its beginning to the present era using a descriptive-analytical method and a review of its main texts. The Yarsanians (Ahl-e Haqq) have linked the origin of their religion to the era of Imam Ali (AS) based on the manifestation of God's nature and attributes. At the beginning of its formation, this religion had a thought similar to Kisanian. Belief in three infallible imams was one of the religious features of this religion in the early centuries. In the 11th century, due to intellectual developments, the Yarsanians were inclined towards the Imamiyyah approach and the thinking of Sufis and mystics. This study answered the question that, according to the texts of Ahl-e Haqq, what the intellectual and religious developments of Ahl-e Haqq are. The findings of this research show that the period of innate emergence and the formation of families played a role in the evolution of this religion. In the era of Sultan Ishaq, the arrogance about the religious authorities intensified compared to the previous periods, and from the 11th century onwards, the intensity of the arrogance about the leaders of this religion decreased a little. Examining the attitude of Ahl-e Haqq in different periods is another goal of this study.
