Ibn Mālik, Abū ʻAbd Allāh Djamāl Al-Dīn Muhammad (Arabic: ابو عبدالله جمال الدين محمد بن عبدالله بن محمد بن عبدالله بن مالك الطائي الجياني النحوي‎) (c. 600 AH – 672 AH / c. 1204 – 21 February 1274) was an Arab grammarian born in Jaén. After leaving al-Andalus for the Near East, he became a Shāfi‘ī, and taught Arabic language and literature in Aleppo and Hamāt, before eventually settled in Damascus, where he began the most productive period of his life. He was a senior master at the Adiliyya Madrasa. His reputation in Arabic literature was cemented by his al-Khulāsa al-alfiyya (known also as simply Alfiya), a versification of Arabic grammar, for which at least 43 commentaries have been written.
