Al-Thaʿlabi (Abū Isḥāḳ Aḥmad ibn Muḥammad ibn Ibrāhīm al-Nīsābūrī al-Thaʿlabī أبو اسحاق أحمد بن محمد بن ابراهيم الثعلبي, d. d. November 1035) was an eleventh-century Islamic scholar

of Persian[1] origin. He was accorded a high rank by the Sunni scholars. In Tabaqat al-Kubra of Volume 3 page 23 the appraisal of Thalabi is as follows:

Allamah Thalabi was the greatest scholar of his time with regard to knowledge of the Quran and Imam of Ahl'ul Sunnah, Abu Qasim al Qurshree commented " I saw Allah in a dream, I was conversing with Him and vice verse, during our conversation, Allah said ' a pious man is coming, I looked and Ahmad bin Thalabi was coming towards us."

Works[edit] Al-Thaʿlabī is known for two compendious works: the Tafsir al-Thalabi and a book on the stories of the prophets, ʿArāʾis al-madjālis fī ḳiṣaṣ al-anbiyāʾ. It has been characterised as 'a work of popular imagination designed for education and entertainment. Organised according to the historical sequence of the prophets, many of the accounts are elaborations from the same sources used by al-Ṭabarī ... It has become the standard source of Islamic prophet stories, alongside the work of al-Kisāʾī'. Unlike al-Thaʿlabī's Tafsīr, this has been printed many times.[2] See also[edit]
