Biography of Abd El Wahab (1692-1787)

Founder of the sect of Wahhabis, born in 1692 and died in 1787. He studied at Ispahan, and after crossing the khorasan (Jurasan) settled in Baghdad and Bassora, where he explained his doctrine. This was a cause of discord among the Princes and heads of Arab tribes, which resulted to bloody strife. The Wahhabis are the Calvinists of Islamism.
