Abstract

Few are the ones who take note of the personality of Al-Hassan Al-Hamedani, and the least of them are those who stood on his creative and encyclopedic presence in Arab culture.
Whoever told you about him passed more than a thousand years ago, and he was not only one of the most prominent pioneers of his time; Rather, he represented an advanced scientific thought of sciences that our modern and contemporary world worked with... He said that the earth is spherical, he talked about longitude and latitude, and about gravity, and he researched geology (geology) and mineral extraction, and he talked about the speed of sound and light, and he discovered oxygen and proved its existence Laboratory ... He wrote in descriptive geography, history and genealogy, antiquities, astronomy, and the stars, in addition to his understanding of religion and Arabic literature, his poetry, prose, and criticism ... And to him is the credit for unveiling the Himyarite pen and the periodic supports on which he threw revealing lights on her immortality By recording and venerating in a timely manner, which facilitated the orientalists in later ages to decipher the symbols of the backed pen and discover the close link between it and the Lihyan, Thamudic and Safavid scripts, which spread in Jordan, the Levant desert and the northern outskirts of the Arabian Peninsula.
