Al-Ḥusayn ibn Ḥamdān Al-Khaṣībī (Arabic: الحسين بن حمدان الخصيبي‎), mostly known as al-Khaṣībī[1] (??–969) [2] (Arabic: الخصيبي‎), was a scholar of the Islamic sect known as the ‘Alawiyyah or Nusayrism, a branch of the Twelver Shi'a, whose followers now mostly live in Syria and Southern Turkey and are known as ‘Alawis. Al-Khaṣībī was the father of Ali al-Layth, known for his battlefield exploits, and his student Al-Tabarani, whose writings were largely responsible for the firm establishment and flourishing of ‘Alawi teachings at the beginning of the second millennium.
