Al-Azimi Open this page in a new tab

Al-Azimi was poet, schoolmaster, and an Arab Chronicler best known for his book the History of Aleppo (Cahen, 1938:354). The account of the earthquake, however, is in another book - Annals of the History of Syria (Al Muwassal 'ala al-Asl al-Mu'assal) which covers the years from 1063 - 1143/44 CE (wikipedia). Although al-Azimi lived in Aleppo, he is known to have made several trips to Damascus (Cahen, 1938:354).
