Later he would travel to Basra in Iraq to study under Hasan al-Basri (one of the Tabi‘in). In Basra he began to develop the ideologies that would lead to the Mutazilite school. These stemmed from conflicts that many scholars had in resolving theology and politics. His main contribution to the Mutazilite school was in planting the seeds for the formation of its doctrine.Wasil ibn Ata died in 748 in the Arabian Peninsula.He married the sister of Amr ibn Ubayd.Al-Melal wan-Nahal (الملل والنحل) - Ja'far as-Sabhani(Arabic) {{webarchive |url=https://web.archive.org/web/20070910103314weblink |date=September 10, 2007 }}The Mu'tazili school is championed today by those influenced by the theological principles outlined by Wasil ibn Ata, among them Naheim Ajmal / Abu Layth (UK), Javed Ahmad Ghamidi (Pakistan), Adnan Ibrahim (Austria), Usama Hasan (UK), Amina Wadud (USA), etc.weblink
