Abstract:
al-Mūjaz fī al-ṭibb, a compendium of medicine by Ibn al-Nafīs, Abū al-Ḥasan ʻAlāʼ al-Dīn ʻAlī ibn Abī al-Ḥazm al-Qurashī al-Mutaṭabbib (1210 or 1211-1288), an illustrious and prolific scholar of the 13th century and a prominent physician and a practical and experimental medical researcher who refused to accept the previous medical opinions of Greek and Muslim scholars (including Galen and Avicenna) without proof and to whom is attributed the discovery of the micro cardiovascular system. He was born in Damascus, Syria but lived and worked in Cairo, Egypt. He depended in his treatment of illnesses mostly on nutritious foods rather than medications. The present manuscript is an abridgement and explantion of Avicenna's al-Qānūn fī al-ṭibb "Canon of medicine" (excluding the chapters on anatomy and physiology) based on his own observations and experimentations. Copied by al-Muhadhdhab al-Musayyijī on Monday 22 Rajab, 745 (29 November, 1344). Place of copying not mentioned, probably Egypt.
