Al-A’lam 7/ 149.
Muhammad ibn Yusuf al-Ilaqi was an eleventh-century Persian physician from Khorasan. He died around 460/1068 and should be counted among Avicenna’s (d. 429/1037) direct students. Al-Ilaqi produced an epitome of the first book of the Canons of Medicine by Avicenna which was known under various titles: Kitab al-Fusul al-Ilaqiyya (“The Aphorisms of al-Ilaqi”) and Kitab al-asbab wa-al-’alamat (“The Book of Causes and Symptoms”). Al-Ilaqi’s greatly abbreviated version of the first book of the Canon was very popular, and many copies have survived. This work is a commentary on Kitab Fusul al-Ilaqiyya.
