The personality of Abu Muslim Khorasani has been reflected in various forms in the texts. In the hadith sources, Abu Muslim is often introduced as someone who was against the Shiite imams and who had rejected him. In polemical-theological texts, Abu Muslim is introduced as the avenger of Ali's family, the overthrower of the sword of the Imams, and the destroyer of the Umayyads. But in the folk stories and especially in the narrations that we know today as Abu Muslim name, Abu Muslim is not only a Shia person, but also one of the special Shiites who received the spiritual teachings of the imams and is himself a follower of the Tariqat and the possessor of virtues.
The same image of Abu Muslim entered the Sufi circles through the tradition of story-telling, and later became one of the important pillars of the Safavid Khanqah Da'wah. After the Safavids came to power, the Safavid Sufis, by promoting the stories of Abu Muslim among the people, both kept alive the goals of the Safavid uprising and increased their followers. The jurists of the Safavid court, in an effort to reduce the power of the Sufis, first noticed this and banned the reading of stories and the destruction of Abu Muslim Khorasani's personality. In this article, we have shown that banning stories and reading stories and distorting Abu Muslim's face was one of the basic steps taken by jurists to counter the spread of Sufism in the Safavid period.
