All these madh'habs had a common doctrine of sharing the Incarnation belief of their imams. Like “Muhtār’īyyah”, “Hāsheem’īyyah”, “Kabr’īyyah”, all of them were from the Ghulat Shia madh'hab of Kaysān’īyyah defending the Godhead of Muhammad ibn al-Hanafiyyah, another son of Ali from his wife Khawlah bint Ja'far.[1] According to Abdülbaki Gölpınarlı, "Qizilbashism" was nothing but the spiritual descendants of Khurramites.[2]
