Abd al-Rashid al-Daylami (d.1670) was originally from Qazvin and studied calligraphy under the great master Mir 'Imad al-Hasani, who was his uncle. He joined the court of Jahangir around 1623-24 and was a royal calligrapher as well as head of the Royal Library during Shah Jahan's reign. His surviving calligraphies and manuscripts are dated between 1631-61 and he was renowned for his mastery in nasta'liq script.

Warren Hastings was the first British Governor-General of India and during his stay in the Indian subcontinent, he assembled and collected a large number of paintings and calligraphies which he brought back when he returned to Britain.

A calligraphic album page signed by Abd al-Rashid is now in the Royal Collection, inv. no.RCIN1005068j. A découpe calligraphy was sold at Christie's London, 10 October 2013, lot 38, whilst another was sold in Sotheby's Paris, 22 October 2015, lot 61.
