The research seeks to study Dar al-Haram, its social importance and its political impact on the Abbasid court, and to clarify the impact of women inside it (from free women and maidservants) and the strength of their influence and the favor they enjoy with the caliph, who works to raise their status and influence, so we find that they enjoy a great role within the court.
Where the research was divided into several topics, including the Haram House and its relationship to the court (132-334 | 749-861 AD) dealing with the influence of women in this period, as the authority of the caliph was great and controlled the state until the era of Al-Mutawakkil, but nevertheless the influence of women was clear through the appointment of covenant governors or the dismissal Big money on endowments and the most important women of bamboo, Mrs. Zubaida, ugly, riot and others 0.
As for the House of the Sanctuary and the struggle for power (247-334 AH | 861-945 CE), political changes took place within the court, as the caliph lost many of his powers, as a result of the dominance of the Turkish leaders over the caliphate, and a great and bloody struggle occurred within the Abbasid house, which resulted in the deposition and killing of most of the caliphs This covenant (Al-Mutawakkil, Al-Muntasir, Al-Musta'in, Al-Mu'tazz, Al-Muqtadir, Al-Qaher) nourished the conflicting forces of Turkish ministers, writers and military leaders, and this conflict among them left an impact on the sanctuary and its authorities.
The research highlighted the impact of Mrs. Shaghab and the authority of the stewardess within the Haram House, as the era of Al-Muqtadir (295-320 AH) represented the power and authority of the Haram House.
After the era of al-Muqtadir, Dar al-Haram lost its powers with the caliph losing his powers during the reign of the princes and the Buyid and Seljuk eras, then its influence gradually returned with the growth of the caliph’s powers in the late Abbasid era. -622 AH)
