i am not sure what you are disagreeing with. i am not stating an opinion, it is rather a fact. so what exactly are you disagreeing with? nothing i have said relates to your reply.I disagree. Al-hakim is a "maqam". A station to reflect gods truth onto the believers.
He isnt saying "i am the lord"
He is saying "approximate yourself with the lord."
Just like how a word is a station for its meaning. For example "Tree"
أنشأ بعض اللاهوتيين الإسماعيليين حركةً دينية اعتبرت الحاكم بأمر الله شخصيةً إلهية. ومن المحتمل جداً أن يكون الحاكم بأمر الله من شجع وأيّد ذلك، إلا أنه ليس من المستغرب أن ذلك مهد الطريق لرد فعل قاسٍ من المؤسسة الدينية الفاطمية في ذلك الوقت. وعلى الرغم من أن السلطات الدينية الفاطمية أضفت الصفة الإلهية على الحاكم بأمر الله وأسلافه، إلا أنهم لم يكونوا مستعدين لإعتبارهم شخصيات إلهية في حد ذاتها. وعندما تم الإعلان عن هذه الفكرة المتناقضة علانيةً لأول مرة في عام 1017، تسببت في حدوث شغبٍ كبير في القاهرة.
i have not changed anything in both posts, i simply reiterated the same idea."like the notion of not accepting any converts into the faith, that was a compromise to appease some of the oppression from the islamic surroundings, same as not preaching, nor accepting any converts, nor even marying outside the sect"
This changes alot. You were suggesting that the faith stopped converting because of fear of oppression. Not true.
the historical sources present it differently.However, thats not the case. The call was conclused because the job was done. End of proselytizing because they reached who they needed to reach.
according to the historic sources available, a feud developed between al-darazi and hamza al zourani as they were competing to be in the caliphe's favor. darazi simply disappeared and his fate is unknown. some speculate that he may have left egypt towards Lebanon or syria.Divine incarnation is what ad-darazi was preaching. Which in the end had him killed.
