The Shi'ites of Basra from 35 to 61 AH / 655-680 CE
Basra is one of the first cities established by Muslims and soon turned into a gathering place for various tribes and groups. This paved the ground for the formation and the activation of religious, political, social and cultural groups there. Shi'ism as a politico-religious school, was also present in that city, and the Shi'ites were influential in its events.
