Abu al-‘Abbās

Abu al-‘Abbās ‘Abdu’llāh ibn Muhammad al-Saffāḥ, or Abul `Abbas as-Saffaḥ (Arabic: أبو العباس عبد الله بن محمد السفّاح‎‎; 721/722 – 10 June 754) was the first caliph of the Abbasid caliphate, one of the longest and most important caliphates (Islamic dynasties) in Islamic history. (Due to different traditions of transcribing Arabic names, the spellings As-Saffah and Al-Saffah may both be found.)

Abū’l ‘Abbās’ laqab or caliphal title was “As-Saffāḥ” (السفّاح), meaning “the Blood-Shedder” for his ruthless tactics and perhaps also to instill fear in his enemies
