A fictional creation of the horror writer H. P. Lovecraft; Alhazred sometimes called the "Mad Arab") is the reputed author of the book of ultimate evil, the Necronomicon or, in Arabic, al Azif.

Those who have any dealings with the Necronomicon usually come to an unpleasant end, and Alhazred was no exception: legend has it that crowds saw him being devoured alive in a public square in Mecca. The being or beings that did the devouring remained invisible throughout.
