About Imam Sufyan al-Thawri
Sufyan bin Sayeed al-Thawri was born in 97th Hijri in Kufa, Iraq. He was a Tabi‘ al-Tabi‘in Islamic scholar. He was also a great 8th Century scholar, jurist and hadith compiler (muhaddith).It is he who had founded a Madhab known as Al-Thawri
After Al-Thawri's move to Basra later in his life, his jurisprudential thought (usul) became more closely aligned to that of the Umayyads and of Al-Azwa'i.
He spent the last year of his life hiding after a dispute between him and the Abbasid Caliph Muhammad Ibn Mansur Al-Mahdi. After his death (161 Hijri), the Thawri Madhhab was taken up by his students, including notably Yahya al-Qattan. However, his school did not survive, but his jurisprudential thought and especially hadith transmission are highly regarded in Islam, and have influenced all the major schools.
