The Oran Fatwa: Making Sheep of Muslims Al-Andalus Islamic Spain Emirate of Granada Morisco Convert Christianity Erosion Faith CryptoIslam

The Oran Fatwa: issued after Christian reconquista of Islamic Spain to Moriscos (Muslims, nominally converted to Christianity), after fall of Emirate of Granada
Advising Muslims to soften their faith and religious practices (=Crypto-Islam), in order for survival under violent Christian rule and Inquisition of Catholic Church
Very controversial up to this day, as it erodes the faith
Suspicion, that Christian aggressors orchestrated issuing this fatwa, to make sheep from Muslims, to be more easily controlled and accept Christian faith, at first openly, simply not resist to Christianization
