Abu Bakr-Alrazi is the father of Arabian medicine, and an expert in seventeenth century European medicine. Furthermore, many consider him the founder of modern chemistry in the east and west.
Alrazi was born in Alrai, one of the cities in Persia, southern Tehran in 854, and died in 932. He was known for medicine and chemistry, and mixing them. Ebn-Annadeem, in his book about him said " " Alrazi was unique in his time, as he had the knowledge of all the ancient sciences, especially medicine". He also called him " The Arabs Galenus".
His most well-known books are:" The Spiritual Medicine ", "Secrets in Chemistry', " Alhawy ", " Almansori ", and " The Medicine of the Poor ". At the time, there was a common saying: " Medicine was dead, however, Galenus brought it into life; medicine was separated and Alrazi gathered it together". Alrazi's books have been translated into European languages, and many European scholars have used them in their work and studies. Moreover, his books remained their only source till the seventeenth century.
Alrazi treasured man's mind, and considered it as one of the greatest blessings of Allah (God ) upon human beings. For with mind, man is able to make use of nature around him, and it is his mind that distinguishes him from an animal
