Sinbuya Asvari

Abu Yunis Sinbuya Asvāri (Persian: سنبویه اسواری‎‎); The idea of Qadariyah, i.e. the Doctrine of Free-will in Islam came from a Persian named Sinbuya Asvāri who was put to death by the Umayyad Caliph Abdu'l-Malik, or, according to other narratives, by Hajjij b. Yusuf. His idea was already taught in Damascus at the end of the seventh century of our era by Ma'bad al-Juhani (died in A.D. 699), who had imbibed the doctrine from Sinbuya.[1]

Sinbuya was one of the 'Asvaran' (the Sassanian Elite cavalry), stationed in Basrah. His name is also attested as 'Sinsuyah'. Sinbuyah was married to 'Umm Musa'[2]
