lbn Hani

His name was Muhammad ibn Hani and his Kunya was either Abul-Qasim or Abul-Hasan. He belonged to the tribes of Azd. His father was a resident of a village near Mahdiya in North Africa. He lost all his belongings because of his love for poetry and had to migrate to Spain. There his son Muhammad was born in the town of lshbiliya in 320 H. Muhammad was attached to the court of the local ruler for whom he wrote poems. However, the population got restive due to his association with the extremist Batini philosophy. He was thus forced to migrate in 347 H. at the age of 27.
