Abu Niwas Abul Hasan Ibn Hani

Birth:c756

Death:813

Perhaps the greatest Arab poet of his time. He was born in Ahwaz of an Iranian mother and his father was a native of Damascus. He was the court poet of both Khalifa Harun Rashid and his son Al Amin. His genius of songs probably found its best expression in the Kham riyat a collection of songs about wine, love and music.
