Iranians History on This Day

 Jun 27 

The day when Iranians once again took over the rule of the whole of Iran
On 27 June 967 AD (Tir 6th), Kerman province joined the possessions of Fana Khosrow (Audad - Dawlah) Daylami (Dalamite). In those days, Kerman province, whose south borders comprised the Persian Gulf and the Oman Sea, was much larger than today. By Kerman joining the possessions of Audad - Dawlah, the whole of Iran came under control of Iranian governments, of which the Samanian (Samanids) and the Al - e - Buye (Buyids) governments had larger shares. Dalamites were from the area southwest of Caspian Sea. The territories of Audad - Dawlah, after adding Kerman, consisted of the whole of the south and center of Iran, Baghdad and the surrounding area from the lower Tigris south to the Persian Gulf.
    Fana Khosrow, famous as Audad - Dawlah, the son of Roknud-Dawlah, was born in Isfahan. His father and two uncles were from the Daylaman area (northern Iran, southwest of Caspian Sea), who, together with Makan Kaki and Mardaviz (the founder of Ziyarid dynasty), erected the flag of independent Iran and separated Iran from the territories of the Abbasid Caliphates (Arabs). Baghdad was conquered by Ali Buye (Emadud -Dawlah), his brother - Ahmad and from that day, the Abbasid Caliphate came under the power and influence of Iranians.
    It was at the time of the Buyids reign that the Shiism became the main support of Iranian nationalism. In other words, Iranian nationalism helped to strengthen the Shiite branch of Islam. The main goal of the Buyid dynasty was to wipe the Arabs completely out of Iran and convince Iranians, who at that time were mainly non-Shiite, to fight with the Arabs, because Islam has prohibited war of Moslem with Moslem. After conquering Baghdad, Ali Buye forced the Caliph to walk bare feet in the streets of Baghdad, on Ashura day, and mourn the martyrdom of Imas Hossein Ebn Ali. The Buyid dynasty counted themselves as the generation of Bahram Goor (king Bahram the fifth) and the Sassanians, and in the Sassanian period, the Zoroastrian religion was the main support of Iranian nationalism, and in that period Iranian empire was one of the two super powers of the world.
