In 1501, the Safavid dynasty established Twelver Shia Islam as the official state religion of Iran. [22] In particular after Ismail I captured Tabriz in 1501 and established Safavids dynasty, he proclaimed Twelver Shiʿism as the state religion, ordering conversion of the Sunnis . The population of what is nowadays Azerbaijan was converted to Shiism the same time as the people of what is nowadays Iran. [16] Although conversion was not as rapid as Ismail’s forcible policies might suggest, [ citation needed ] the vast majority of those who lived in the territory of what is now Iran and Azerbaijan did identify with Shiism by the end of the Safavid era in 1722. As most of Ismail's subjects were Sunni he enforced official Shi'ism violently, putting to death those who opposed him. [ citation needed ] Thousands were killed in subsequent purges. [ citation needed ] In some cases entire towns were eliminated because they were not willing to convert from Sunni Islam to Shia Islam. [23] Ismail brought Arab Shia clerics from Bahrain , Iraq , Syria , and Lebanon in order to preach the Shia faith. [24] Ismail's attempt to spread Shia propaganda among the Turkmen tribes of eastern Anatolia prompted a conflict with the Sunnite Ottoman Empire . Following Iran's defeat by the Ottomans at the Battle of Chaldiran , Safavid expansion fasted, and a process of consolidation began in which Ismail sought to quell the more extreme expressions of faith among his followers. [25] While Ismail I declared shiism as the official state religion, it was in fact his successor, Tahmasb , who consolidated the Safavid rule and spread Shiʿism in Iran. After a period of indulgence in wine and the pleasures of the harem, [ citation needed ] he turned pious and parsimonious, observing all the Shiʿite rites and enforcing them as far as possible on his entourage and subjects. [23] Under Abbas I , Iran prospered. Succeeding Safavid rulers promoted Shi'a Islam among the elites, and it was only under Mullah Muhammad Baqir Majlisi – court cleric from 1680 until 1698- that Shia Islam truly took hold among the masses.
