Al‑Ahwazi

Full name: 
Al-Husayn ibn Sa'id ibn Hammad ibn Mihran al‑Ahwazi
Al-Husayn ibn Sa'id ibn Hammad ibn Mihran al‑Ahwazi (epithet Abu Muhammad) was originally from al-Kufah but he moved with his brother al-Hasan ibn Sa'id to al‑Ahwaz and thus he became popular by the city's name (i.e. al‑Ahwazi). (His brother) al-Hasan was known by the nickname “Dandan” and the two brothers were amongst the (descendents of the) companions of 'Ali ibn Al-Husayn.
 
Al-Husayn ibn Sa'id lived in the times of Imam al‑Riďa, al‑Jawad and al‑Hadi, and narrated traditions from them. For this reason, he is enumerated amongst their companions as can be found often in the books of biographies and of people who narrated traditions.
