Quick facts for kidsAbū al-Qāsim Maḥmūd ibn Umar al-Zamakhsharī
Abū al-Qāsim Maḥmūd ibn Umar al-Zamakhsharī (محمود بن عمر الزمخشري ), known as al-Zamakhsharī , or Jar Allāh ("God's neighbour") (18 March 1075 – 12 June 1144), was a medieval Muslim scholar of Persian origin. He was a great Hanafite jurist, Mu'tazilite theologian and authority on Arabic language philology. Al-Zamakhshari's fame as a scholar rests upon his tafsir (exegesis) in his commentary on the Qur'an, Al-Kashshaaf. This seminal philosophical linguistic analysis of Qur'anic verse prompted controversy centred on its Muʿtazilite interpretation.
