Ahmad ibn Farrokh


Ahmad ibn Farrokh

Ahmad ibn Farrukh, also written Ahmad-i Farrokh, was a 12th century Persian physician from Herat.

He was one of the teachers of Al-Jurjani.

He is author of a Persian medicine encyclopaedia titled "Kifayah" that is no longer extant though it had a high reputation among scholars long after al-Jurjani's day.

The National Library of Medicine has in its collection a formulary of compound remedies ("Qarabadhin"). [ [http://www.nlm.nih.gov/hmd/arabic/E11_E13.html Islamic Medical Manuscripts : Catalogue - Encycolopedias 11-13] ]

This formulary in 11 short chapters ("babs"), and it appears to be the only preserved example of the writings of Ahmad ibn Farrukh.
