He was an Arab from Banu Janab, a subtribe of the Banu Kalb.[1][2][3] The exact date of his birth is not known. He was born between 230 AH/845 CE, and 240 AH/855 and died in 300/913 or 301/913-14.[2] In 900, he scored a major victory over an Abbasid army sent to subdue him, led by Al-'Abbas ibn 'Amr al-Ghanawi.
