Al-Hasan al-Basri

Al-Hasan al-Basri (642-728)


Al-Ḥasan al-Baṣrī, in full Abū Saʿīd ibn Abī al-Ḥasan Yasār al-Baṣrī (born 642, Medina, Arabia [now in Saudi Arabia]—died 728, Basra, Iraq), deeply pious and ascetic Muslim who was one of the most important relgious figures in early Islām.

Ḥasan was born nine years after the death of the Prophet Muḥammad. One year after the Battle of Ṣiffīn (657), he moved to Basra, a military camp town situated 50 miles (80 km) northwest of the Persian Gulf. From this base, military expeditions to the east disembarked, and, as a young man (670–673), Ḥasan participated in some of the expeditions that led to the conquest of eastern Iran.
