Surūshān al-Bistāmī, commonly known as Bayazid Bastami with the epithet of Sultān-ul-Ārifīn (King of the Mystics), is the greatest mystic of century 3 AH and lived between 161 (777 AD) and 234 (848 AD) AH (according to another quotation, died in 261 AH/ 874 AD). It is said that Bayazid came back to Bastam after some years of exploration and ascetism and spent most of his life and died there.
