, Persian historian, lived probably in the 16th and 17th centuries. Having entered the government service at Gīlān (Ch. Schefer, Chrest. pers., ii. 93), he was entrusted with the surpervision of the accounts by the vizier of this place, Behzād-beg, about 1018 or 1019 (1609-1610); and was then sent by ʿĀdil S̲h̲āh to ʿIrāḳ. He wrote, in Persian, the Taʾrīk̲h̲-i Gīlān, a history of Gīlān from 923 (1517) to 1038 (1628), which has been published by B. Dorn.
