Ahmad al-Nayrizi was one of the most prolific calligraphers of the Safavid period. Born in Nayriz in Fars, he studied calligraphy under Muhammad Ibrahim ibn Muhammad Nasir Qumi, also known as Aqa Ibrahim Qumi (active between 1659 and 1707). Al-Nayrizi later moved to Isfahan and became the court calligrapher during the reign of Shah Sultan Husayn (r.1694-1722).

A prayerbook dated 1132 AH/1719 AD is in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York (inv.no. 2003.239 ). Other collections of prayers have been offered in these rooms, 8 October 2014, lot 49; 6 April 2011, lot 221 and 1 April 2009, lot 11 and 25 April 2015, lot 42.
