A student of the famous early theologian Hasan al-Basri, he led the Mutazilis during the early years of the Abbasid caliphate. He generally followed a quietist political stance toward the Abbasid political establishment.<ref>John Esposito, The Oxford Dictionary of Islam, Oxford University Press 2003</ref>
