Abu Nu`aym (w40.5) is Ahmad ibn `Abdullah ibn Ahmad, Abu Nu`aym al-Asbahani, born in Isfahan, Persia, in 336/948. He was a Shafi`i scholar, hadith master (hafiz), and historian, who was reliable in memory and transmission. He is perhaps most famous for his ten volume Hi!ya al-awliya' [The adornment of the saints], in which he records the lives and sayings of the early Muslims and friends of Allah (awliya'). He died in Isfahan in 430/1038 (al-A`lam (y136), 1.157; and Tabaqat al-Shafi`iyya al-kubra (y128), 4.18).
