ultimate authority of sciences of Qur’an – Ibn Al-Jazari the Kurdish (Iranic) and Shirazi Beacon of knowledge.
His full Name was Abu al-Khayr Shams al-Din Muhammad ibn Muhammad ibn Muhammad ibn Ali ibn Yusuf al-Jazari (1350 CE/751 AH – 1429 CE/833 AH) was a distinguished and prolific scholar in the field of the Qira’at of the Qur’an, whom al-Suyuti regarded as the “ultimate authority on these matters”.
His works on Tajwid and Qira’at are considered classics and are a reference to Qur’an students all over the world, including deviant sects (like the Shia) who have no choice but to rely on him (a Sunni Shafi’i) when it comes to he rules of the recitation of the Qur’an as these sciences are monopolized by the Ahl al-Sunnah wa al-Jama’ah, the people of the Qur’an who like no other have preserved this knowledge and passed it down from the Prophet and his companions.
Al-Jazari compiled more than 90 works on qira’at, hadith, history and other disciples.
