Hanzalah was appointed by Hani ibn Qabisa as Rosh Ma'amad of the Monoenergist Edomean-Ishmaelites who united the Lakhmids and other Arabs in Tachkastan. He was wed to a Nasri called Khadijah by a Nasri called Waraqa ibn Naufal. He was a poet whose advice was regarded as auspicious even though it was said that he had left the way of the Royalists (Nasrideen) and had become a Tsabi (Messianic). Through him victory was attained at the battle of Dhi Qar when his relative, Imam Hani ibn Qabisa submitted to Hanzalah. He was confused with many other people in the time of Abbasids when the origin story of the Arabs' Empire was re-written.

Islamic Tradition

In the Standard Islamic Narrative, Hanzalah's Battle of Dhi Qar's victory was claimed by the Nabi of Medina as the first victory enjoyed by the Arabic Medina against Persia being around 622/623/624 near the Battle of Badr.

In the Maghāzī Medina's Nabi is called ibn Abi Kabsha as also in a Bukhari Hadith about Abu Sufyan's encounter with Heraclius refers to the cause of ibn Abi Kabsha meaning Qabisa's Father's Son. The indication is that the Prophet was related to Hani ibn Qabisa.

Ibn Ishaq's version also confirms that the Nabi was a Nabaoti.
