Fazari, Ibrahim, mathematician and astronomer
Abu Ishaq Ibrahim ibn Habib ibn Sulaiman ibn Samura ibn Jundab alFazari (Persian: أبو إسحاق إبراهيم بن حبيب بن سليمان بن سمورا بن جندب الفزاري) was an 8th century Persian. He was the mathematician and astronomer at the Abbasid court of the Caliph Harun alRashid. He is not to be confused with his son Mohammad alFazari, also an Astronomer.
He composed various astronomical writings (on the astrolabe, on the armillary spheres, on the calendar).
The Caliph ordered he and his son to translate the Indian Astronomical text The Sindhind along with Yaqub ibn Tāriq. This translation was possibly the vehicle by means of which the Hindu numerals were transmitted from India to Islam.
He died in 777AD.
