Has n ibn an-Nu'm n al-Ghass n (d. ca. 700), amir (general) of the Umayyad army in North Africa.

Dates in this section are according to Ibn Abd al-Hakam (work cited below), other medieval sources give a range of 4 years before and after. He was appointed governor of the Maghreb about the year 692 CE. At this time, the Arab forces had still not managed to entirely defeat the Byzantine Greeks in North Africa. He captured the Byzantine city of Carthage after defeating Ioannes the Patrician and Tiberios III at the Battle of Carthage in 698 CE. After a defeat by the Berber warrior queen al-Kahina, he retired to Libya for several years, then returned to Ifriqiya and killed al-Kahina in battle. This effectively brought Ifriqiya (modern Tunisia and eastern Algeria) under Arab control.show more
