fl. late 17th cent.
Little is known of his origins or life, although he came presumably from the Jawāmiʿa people of central Kordofan (MacMichael (1922), ii, 239, confuses his biography with that of Ghānim al-Aḥmadī). In the colophon to his commentary (seen by the author of the K. al-ṭabaqāt), he notes that he had studied tawḥīd with ʿAlī b. Barrī (q.v.) and after the latter’s unexpected death in 1073/1662-63, continued his studies with Arbāb b. ʿAlī (q.v.).
