1356256127 The Affects of İslam and Magianism on Consisting of Yazidism

Yazidis have been dwelling in countryside of Turkey, Syria and Armenia.
Looking at their residential districts, it can easily be seen that they have been neighbours
of Muslim throughout history yet have always lived in different districts
from them. Yazidis who live in Turkey reside in willages which mainly remain in
the borders of Batman, Mardin, Siirt, Şanlıurfa and Şırnak. Nearly all of Yazidis who
have lived in Batman borders until very recent past are living in Germany now. In
recent years, especially with the influence of some Germany-based evaluations and
purposes it has been claimed that the former religion of Kurds was Yazidism whereas
the former religion of Yazidis was Magianism.However history ,religious texts,
worship and especially principles of belief of Yazidis are different in many ways from
Magianism. On the other hand,the affects of İslam religion on religious tales, prays,
worships and principles of belief of Yazidis along with impacts of muslims, living in
the region, on their customs, culture and traditions have dramaticaly been seen.
