When the Muslims conquered Iraq and Iran, with the influence of Islam, new schools of thought emerged among the Jews of this region. Isawiyya, which was influential from 7th to the 10th centuries, is the first of these schools. The founder of the school, Abu Isa al-Isfahani benefited from the political instabilities of his time, and became a religious and political leader by using Messianic expectation of his people. First he declared himself as the messenger of the Messiah, and then claimed that he was Messiah and a prophet. He claimed that new prophets could emerge among the Jews without abrogating the Law of Moses. Isawiyya School is particularly important with their understanding of Messiah and prophecy.
