AsSaffah then ordered a crier to go forth and proclaim Abu Salama as "the man whom the Caliph delighteth to honour." So he was called and arrayed in a robe of honour, and entertained by the Caliph till night was far advanced.
Saffah, 132 A.H. In a previous chapter we have seen that while Merwan still tarried at Harran, Ibn Hubeira, the Umeiyad general, was defeated in the vicinity of Al-Kufa by the army of Kahtaba, and obliged to fall back on Wasit.
As-Saffah then returned to the encampment of Abu Salama, where for some months he occupied with him the same abode.

The quarrel was taken up by his brother Abdallah, known by the name of Abu al-'Abbas as-Saffah, who after a decisive victory on the Greater Zab river (750) finally crushed the Umayyads and was proclaimed caliph.
The history of the new dynasty is marked by perpetual strife and the development of luxury and the liberal arts, in place of what their opponents identified as old-fashioned austerity of thought and manners.
In the reign of Marwan II this opposition culminated in the rebellion of Ibrahim the Imam, the fourth in descent from Abbas, who, supported by the province of Khorasan, achieved considerable successes, but was captured (AD 747) and died in prison (as some hold, assassinated).

 BANU AL- 'ABAS (THE ABASIDS)
Al- Mansur had made 'Isa crown prince because the latter distinguished himself in battle with Mohammed and Ibrahim, so that he was able to kill them and destroy their revolt that made al- Mansur worried and think that his rule would perish.
Al- Mansur used all means to capture Mohammed and Ibrahim- some times, he declared safety for them, and some times treated father and the sons of al- Hasan cruelly, but these means did not help him to reach and find them.
Al- Saffah became Caliph, So the world laughed with him after frowning and came to him after turning away, but is the person, even if he possesses all the world, safe from the misfortunes of worry?

Saffah was a great-grandson of Abbas, prophet Mohammad’s uncle, thus he called the new dynasty “Abbasid”.
Mansour, Saffah’s brother and successor, killed Abu-Moslem and tried to decrease the Iranian influence in the Caliphate, but he was not very successful in his act.
Around 750 AD, an Iranian military genius called “Abu-Moslem” leaded the armies of “Saffah” against the last Omavid caliph, Marvan II.

Between 132 Hijri to 136 Hijri THE ABBASSAYDS (Muslims) ousted UMMAYYADS (Muslims) and the leader of Abbassayds, Abu Abbas Al Saffah and his companions and started the campaign of bloodletting against the Ummayads due to which streets of Damascus became red with blood.

 The risings of the Alids
The first task before Abbas as-Saffah therefore was to break the alliance with the Alids who were yet strong and could be dangerous.
But when Abu Jafar Mansur, the brother of Abul Abbas as-Saffah assumed the caliphate, the Alids embittered by the usurpation of their rights by the house of Abbas, began to voice their complaints.
During his short rule of less than four years, he was kept fully occupied in meeting numerous insurrections and in ruthlessly killing those Alids who were suspected.

His speech was followed by a speech from his uncle, Daud bin Ali, who also emphasized that the rights of the Abbasids were legally inherited and there were but two legal caliphs in Islam: Ali bin Abu Talib and Abbas as-Saffah.
Abul Abbas mounted the pulpit and made his inaugural speech, in which he named himself as as-Saffah (blood-shedder) and "identified the glory of God with his own interest and those of his house.
He named the Abbasids as the Ahl-al-Bait from whom uncleanliness was removed, and denined that the Alids were more worthy of the caliphate." (vide Tabari, 3rd vol., p.

In 750 AD the Omayyads were overthrown and Abdollah Saffah became caliph, the first in line of the Abbasid dynasty.
