Abū-Saʿīd Hasan Jannābī (Arabic: ابوسعید حسن الجنابي‎‎) was the founder of the Qarmatian state in Al-Bahrayn, in the late 9th century CE. He was a Persian from Jannāba (Ganaveh, currently in Bushehr province). The exact date of his birth is not known. He was born between 230 AH/845 CE, and 240 AH/855 and died in 300/913 or 301/913-14. In 900, he scored a major victory over an Abbasid army sent to subdue him, led by Al-'Abbas ibn 'Amr al-Ghanawi. He was succeeded by his son Abū-Tāhir Al-Jannābī.
