The History of Islam is witness that the 4th century Islamic Hijar, rivalries among Sunnis and Shi’as were high and shaking the foundation of the ‘Abbasid society as a whole. It is known, that the Persians enjoyed great political influence in the establishment of the ‘Abbasid Caliphate. They were consequently entrusted with important positions in the administration of the state. But whenever any caliph showed signs of mistrust or lack of confidence in them, they never hesitated in getting rid of him. The ruthless executions of Abu Muslim Khurasani, Baramiks, and Ibn Sahl are a few instances of it. Influence of Turks in the affairs of the Abbasid Kalifate rose also rapidly. They not only tried their best to assume all power of the Khalifa’, but also made incessant efforts to oust Persians from responsible positions. This was the age when Al-Jassas was born, but there is a little dispute about his name and legacy in which he born.
