Abu Shoaib Muhammad Ibn Nusayr

Birth:

Death:880

Nusayris are named after him. Nusayris are now called Alawi (of Ali). Alawi is common family name in the Arab world and signifies that they are 'followers of Ali'. However, the name does not imply shiism. Some Alid dynasties such as the ruling family of Jordan or that of Morocco are Sunnis.
