Ibn Hibban (g1.1) is Muhammad ibn Hibban ibn Ahmad ibn Hibban ibn Mu`adh ibn Ma`bad, Abu Hatim al-Tamimi al-Busti, born in Bust (in present-day Afghanistan). A Shafi`i Imam and hadith master (hafiz), he was an extremely prolific author whom Yaqut once said "produced works in the sciences of hadith that no one else could have written." In his search for knowledge of hadith, he travelled to Khurasan, Syria, Egypt, Iraq, the Arabian Peninsula, and Nishapur, before returning to his native city, after which he served as ajudge for a period in Samarkand. He authored al-Anwa` wa al-taqasim [Types and categories], also known as al-Musnad al-sahih [Authenticated ascribed traditions] and other voluminous works in hadith, encyclopediology, biography, and history, and died in Bust in 354/965 (al-A `lam (y136), 6.78; and Tabaqat al-Shafi`iyya al-kubra (y 128). 3.131).
