HAGARISM THE MAKING OF THE ISLAMIC WORLD PDF

Hoyland , [7] Reza Aslan , [8] G. Yet, with a few notable exceptions [Conrad and Morony for example] this line line of inquiry has not been pursued. This is unfortunate Since then the "SUNY Series in Near Eastern Studies" [23] has also collected a selection of authors who are continuing in a modified form of this theory. Reeves says that Hagarism needs to do much basic research before it can propose bold theories.

Synopsis[ edit ] Cook and Crone postulate that "Hagarism" started as a "Jewish messianic movement" to "reestablish Judaism" in the Jewish Holyland Palestine and known at first as muhajirun, not Muslims, their hijra migration was to Jerusalem not Medina. They first flirted with Christianity and adopted a respect for Jesus as prophet and Mary as Virgin, before asserting a new independent Abrahamic monotheist identity.

This borrowed from the Jewish breakaway sect of Samaritanism "the idea of a scripture limited to the Pentateuch , a prophet like Moses Muhammad , a holy book revealed like the Torah the Quran , a sacred city Mecca with a nearby mountain Jabal an-Nour and shrine the Kaaba of an appropriate patriarch Abraham , plus a caliphate modeled on an Aaronid priesthood.

The word was a self-designation of the early Muslim community with a double-meaning. Secondly, it refers to Ishmaelites : descendants of Abraham through his handmaid Hagar and their child Ishmael , in the same way as the Jews claimed descent and their ancestral faith from Abraham through his wife Sarah and their child Isaac.

Muhammad would have claimed such descent for Arabs to give them a birthright to the Holy Land and to prepend a monotheist genealogy compatible with Judaism to their pagan ancestral practice such as sacrifice and circumcision. Hagarism thus refers to this early faith movement. The designation as Muslims and Islam would only come later, after the success of contests made the duty of hijra obsolete. Origins[ edit ] The authors, interpreting 7th century Syriac, Armenian and Hebrew sources, put forward the hypothesis that Muhammad was alive during the conquest of Palestine about two years longer than traditionally believed ; the caliphate of Abu Bakr was hence a later invention.

He led Jews and Hagarenes Arabs united under a faith loosely described as Judeo-Hagarism, as a prophet preaching the coming of a Judaic messiah who would redeem the Promised Land from the Christian Byzantines. The hijra , the defining idea and religious duty of Hagarenes, thus referred to the emigration from northern Arabia to Palestine later more generally to conquered territories , not to a single exodus from Mecca to Medina in particular, "no seventh-century source identifies the Arab era as that of the hijra".

Mecca was only a secondary sanctuary; the initial gathering of Hagarenes and Jews took place rather somewhere in north-west Arabia, north of Medina.

Development[ edit ] After the successful conquest of the Holy Land, Hagarenes feared that being too influenced by Judaism might result in outright conversion and assimilation. In order to break with Jewish messianism, they recognised Jesus as messiah though rejecting his crucifixion , which also served to soften the initially hostile attitude towards a growing numbers of Christian subjects.

However, to form a distinct identity, not conflated with either Judaism or Christianity, ancestral practice was reframed as a distinct monotheistic Abrahamic religion. It took the Samaritan scriptural position, defined as accepting the Pentateuch while rejecting prophets. This also served to undermine the legitimacy of the Davidic monarchy, which the Samaritans rejected, as well as the sanctity of Jerusalem. Instead, Samaritans had had their holy city in Shechem and a temple on the nearby Mount Gerizim ; Mecca with its nearby mountain were contrived as a parallel of these.

To combine the Abrahamic, Christian, and Samaritan elements, the role of Muhammad was recast as a prophet parallel to Moses , bringing a new scriptural revelation. The Quran was expeditiously collected from earlier disparate Hagarene writings, possibly heavily edited into its complete form by al-Hajjaj that is, in the last decade of the 7th century rather than the middle, under Uthman , as traditionally believed ; see Origin according to academic historians. The political theory of early Islam was based on two sources.

The first was Samaritan high-priesthood, which joins political and religious authority and legitimises it on basis of religious knowledge and genealogy. Secondly, a resurgence of Judaic influences in Babylonian Iraq, which led to the reassertion of messianism in the form of mahdism , especially in Shia Islam. The identification as Hagarenes was replaced with the Samaritan notion of Islam understood as submission or as a covenant of peace , its adherents becoming Muslims.

Consolidation in Iraq[ edit ] The transition to a confident, recognisably Islamic identity, with its various borrowings assimilated, occurred in the late 7th century, during the reign of Abd al-Malik. However, its evolution continued.

As power was transferred from Syria to Iraq, Islam incorporated the rabbinical culture of Babylonian Judaism: religious law practised by a learned laity and based on oral traditions.

This original solution finalised the independence of Islam from Judaism. Part I of the book ends by considering the peculiar state in which the Hagarenes found themselves: their own success pushed them away from the sanctuaries of Jerusalem and Mecca to Babylonia, as finalised by the Abbasid Revolution ; Umar had already lived and there was no lost land or freedom to hope for.

This led Sunni religious politics into quietism under a desanctified state, contrasted only with "Sufi resignation".
