Tha`alibi (q.v.) and Jurjani (q.v.) were almost contemporary, and a little later came Zamakhshari, whose philological works are almost as famous as his commentary on the Koran.
Another very famous commentary is that of Zamakhshari (A.D.
1286), edited by Fleischer (Leipzig, 1846-1848), is little more than an abridgment of Zamakhshari's.
This work is in the main a digest of the great Mu`tazalite commentary (al-Kashshaf) of Zamakhshari with omissions and additional notes.
ZAMAKHSHARI [Abu-1 Qasim Mahmud ibn `Umar uzZamakhsharij (1074-1143), Arabian theologian and grammarian, was born at Zamakhshar, a village of Khwarizm, studied at Bokhara and Samarkand, and enjoyed the fellowship of the jurists of Bagdad.
Zamakhshari's fame as a commentator rests upon his commentary on the Koran, called al-Kashshdf (" the Revealer").
