(d. 755) Leader of a revolutionary movement in Khorsn whose efforts brought down the Umayyad dynasty. Born into the mawl (non-Arab Muslim) class and of humble origins, he met an agent of the Abbsid family while in prison (741). After his arranged release, he was sent to Khorsn (745-746) to instigate a revolt. Recruiting from various discontented groups, he succeeded in overthrowing the last Umayyad caliph, Marwn II (750), and was rewarded with the governorship of Khorsn. His popularity led the second Abbsid caliph, al-Manr, to view him as a threat and have him put to death. See also Abbsid dynasty
