Catalogue Note

Sa’d al-Din Mas’ud ibn ‘Umar b. ’Abd Allah was born in Taftazar, a village in the region of Khurasan in 1322 AD. He was a renowned scholar, writing on religion, logic, rhetoric, grammar and law. He moved to Herat in 1358 AD and later to Samarqand where he worked under the patronage of Timur. At the court of Timur he enjoyed a great honour until 1387 AD, when he became engaged in a scholarly rivalry with al-Sharif al-Jurjiani, who was preferred by the ruler. He died in 1390 AD and was buried in Sarakhs. He was a prolific author, writing both on religious matters (Qur’an commentaries and fiqh) as well as literature, rhetoric and grammar. See also Brockelmann, GAL, II. 215 (648) and S., II. 301.
