Bin Jazla

(1074-1100 AD)

Abu Ali Yahya Bin Issa Bin Jazla was born in Baghdad in 1074. He wrote two books on medicine; “Taqween al- Abdan” (Correcting the Body) and “Minhaj al- Bayan” (Methods of Correction).


He promoted the value of music in cure, equating its effect with that of drugs. He was generous to his friends and acquaintances, giving them medical treatment free of charge and providing them with free medicine.

“Taqween al-Abdan fi Tadbir al-Insan”, is a book on therapeutics arranged in tabular form.
