"Abū l-Futūḥ al-Rāzī (fl. sixth/twelfth century) was a Shīʿī author and preacher, most famous for his Persian commentary on the Qurʾān, entitled Rawḍ al-jinān wa-rawḥ (or rūḥ) al-janān. He was supposedly descended from the Khuzāʿa tribe, a contingent of which settled in Nīsābūr (Nīshāpūr). Some of the Khuzāʿa are said to have relocated to Rayy, where Abū l-Futūḥ lived."[1]
