Following the conquest of Azerbaijan in the third decade -After Hijrah- a large group of diverse oba, clans, and tribes of Arab went towards this land.

The effect of migration of Arab tribes on the Shiism of Azerbaijan could be investigated within two aspects: first, the settlement of tribes such as Yamani tribes, with the Shiite beliefs prevalent among them, in Azerbaijan and second, the role of Kufa city as one of the main centers of the advent of Shiite beliefs in the conquest of Azerbaijan.
