In Islamic literature of all schools of thought, history and theology had got mixed. Muslims had developed the almost fatal habit of writing history as theology. The two had to be separated, specially in the Shiite school of thought where the absence of the Twelfth Imam had been used as an excuse for opting out of the historical process.
