Iranian scholar and polymath, a mathematician, historian, astronomer and astrologer during the Islamic Golden Age, who has been called variously the "founder of Indology", "Father of Comparative Religion", "Father of modern geodesy", and the first anthropologist.
He was, for his time, an admirably impartial writer on the customs and creeds of various nations, his scholarly objectivity earning him the title al-Ustadh ("The Master") in recognition of his remarkable description of early 11th-century India.
He died on 13 December 1048 (Jul.Cal.) in Ghazni (now Afghanistan).
The lunar crater Al-Biruni and the asteroid 9936 Al-Biruni were named in his honour.
