The impact of people’s ideological beliefs in analyzing such issues as rijāl (science dealing with transmitters of hadīth), exegesis, and history is undeniable. In this article, it is tried to clarify three issues:
First, a definition of the ideological beliefs is to be presented.
Second, the domains and efficacy of the ideological beliefs in the field of history should be delineated.
Third, some examples of efficacy have been pointed out to clarify that so long as in analyzing historical issues the ideological beliefs of the historians are not properly examined, we would be witnessing consequences, however negative they may be, in the field of history. Meanwhile, mentioning the examples would remind the researcher to be cautious in criticizing and analyzing the reports, which revolve around the sacred characters.
