Career

In Iraq under the Zubayrids governor of Basra, Mus'ab bin al-Zubayr, Al Muhallab was entrusted with suppressing the rising of the Azariqa Kharijites by and when the Umayyads came to power in Iraq, he transferred his allegiance to them.[2] Under Al-Hajjaj, he pushed them out from Iraq to Siwistan so that by the end of the seventh century they were no longer a threat to the central authorities.[2] He was also involved in containing a second Kharijite uprising to the North of Kufa led by Shabib bin Yazid, which he eventually defeated in 697 CE.[2] In 698 he was made governor of Khorasan by Al-Hajjaj until his death when he was succeeded by his son Yazid ibn al-Muhallab.[3] The rise of the Muhallabids and the "southern azdis" in Khorasan as at Basra is linked to their alliance with the Rabi'a against the Mudar.[3]
