Baydawi (r21.1) is `Abdullah ibn `Umar ibn Muhammad ibn `Ali, Nasir al-Din al-Shirazi al-Baydawi, born in Bayda, near Shiraz, Persia. He was a Shafi`i scholar, judge, and Koranic exegete whose commentary Anwar al-Tanzil wa asrar al-ta'wil [The lights of the Revelation and secrets of interpretation] is so well known that whenever scholars mention 'The Judge" (al-Qadi) in the context of Koranic commentary, it is Baydawi who is meant. He wrote a number of other scholarly works in tenets of faith, jurisprudence, and Arabic, as well as a history in Persian. After serving as a judge in Shiraz, he moved to Tabriz, where he died in 685/1286 (al-A`lam (y136), 4.110; and n).
