ʿAbd-Al-Razzāq B. ʿAlī B. Al-Hosayn Lāhījī (died c. 1072 "AH [1662 CE]) was an Iranian theologian, poet and philosopher.[1] His mentor in philosophy was his father-in-law "Mulla Sadra.



Hailing from "Lahijan in "Gilan, he spent most of his life in "Qom. Abd al--Razzaq was a son-in-law of "Mulla Sadra along with Molla Mohsen Feyz Kashani.[2] His son "Hasan would become another prominent theologian and philosopher of the Safavid dynasty.[3] Seyyed "Hossein Nasr knows him among the intellectual figures in Persia.[4] Abd al--Razzaq was in agreement with Molla Sadra as to the contrast between primacy of "quiddity and primacy of existence.[5]


Teaching and pupils[edit]

According to Madlung, Abd-Razzaq taught at the Masumieh madrasah. There his prominent pupils included his sons Hasan and Ebrahim as well as Qazi Saeed Qommi.[6]


Lāhīǰī stands at the end of a transition in Islamic scholastic theology in which the thought system of "kalam was gradually replaced by that of "falsafa, heavily influenced by the school of "Avicenna.[1] Lahiji in fact developed a form of Kalam which is hardly distinguishable from Hikmat, although at least in his better known works such as the "Gawhar-e morād" he does not follow the main doctrinal teachings of Mulla Sadra, as on the unity of Being and the catharsis of the faculty of imagination.[7]
