AbstractAbu Moslem Mohammad Ibn-Ali Ibn-Hussein Ibn-Mehr Izad is literary grammarian of fourth and fifth centuries whose name has been mentioned in some of the sources of sixth and later centuries. He was born in Darb Kushk quarter of Isfahan in 366 (L.H) and became one of the scholars of Isfahan school after passing scientific levels. Ibn-Moghri of Isfahan is one of his teachers and Khaje Nizam Al-Molk and Isfahani Hamami are among his most famous students. Although Abu-Moslem was one of the great literary figures of Isfahan, it seems that he was not considered as an interpreter and probably he had some ideas about the interpretation of some verses of Holy Quran. There is no written commentary which belongs to him and there is no commentary ascribed to him in the works of past scholars but in some texts he was mistakenly considered as an interpreter and a commentary was ascribed to him because of the name resemblance.
