In addition to his scholarship, Abiwardi also had a reputation for honesty and piety. His Arabic teachers include the renowned “father of Arabic rhetoric” `Abd al-Qahir al-Jurjani (d. 471 H / 1078 CE). Abiwardi was widely read, and was almost a permanent fixture of the Nizamiyya library in Baghdad. He is said to have had a photographic memory, and to have been exceptionally intelligent.
