Abdullāh ibn 'Ibādh al-Tamimi (Arabic: عبدالله بن اباض التميمي‎; d. 708) was a Tabi'i, a jurist and one of the best students of Ibn Abbas,[citation needed] who narrated hadiths from Aisha and a large number of the Sahaba who witnessed the Battle of Badr.[citation needed] He and Jābir ibn Zayd were imams in the tafsir and sciences of Hadith.[citation needed]


Abdullah ibn Ibadh hailed from the clan of Banu Murra, a branch of the Najdi tribe of Bani Tamim, one of the main tribes in Arabia.[1]


Ibn Ibadh was born in al-Yamamah and grew up during the reign of Muawiyah I, the first ruler of the Umayyad Caliphate, and died during the reign of Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan.[2]

The Ibadi school of thought is attributed to ibn Ibadh, although there is some recent research[3] that qualifies this attribution.
