Ibn Muqla

Born on 866

Died on 940

Abu Ali Muhammad ibn Ali ibn Muqla;

(Arabic: أبو علي محمد بن علي ابن مقلة‎, romanized: Abū ʿAlī Muḥammad ibn ʿAlī ibn Muqla; 885/6 – 20 July 940/1), commonly known as Ibn Muqla, was a Persian official of the Abbasid Caliphate who rose to high state posts in the early 10th century. His career culminated in his own assumption of the vizierate at Baghdad thrice: in 928–930, 932–933 and 934–936. Unable to successfully challenge the growing power of regional emirs, he lost his position to the first amir al-umara, Ibn Ra’iq, and died in prison. He was also a noted calligrapher.
