Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. 'Ali ibn al-'Abbas al-Majusi (died 982-994), also known as Masoudi, or Latinized as Haly Abbas, was a Persian physician and psychologist most famous for the Kitab al-Maliki or Complete Book of the Medical Art, his textbook on medicine and psychology. He was born in Ahvaz, southwestern Persia, and studied under Shaikh Abu Maher Musa ibn Sayy r. He was considered one of the three greatest physicians of the Eastern Caliphate of his time, and became physician to Emir Adhad al-dowleh Fana Khusraw of the Buwayhid dynasty, who ruled from 949 CE to 983 CE. The Emir was a great patron of medicine, and founded a hospital at Shiraz in Persia, and in 981 the Al-Adudi Hospital in Baghdad, where al-Magusi worked. His ancestors were Zoroastrian, but he himself was a Muslim. His reverence for Allah is evident in the worship and styles of expression throughout his work.show more
