Qazi Sa’id Qumi (1633–1692) was an Iranian Muslim philosopher.

In Isfahan he was the pupil of Rajab Ali Tabrizi, Muhsen Feyz and Abd al-Razzaq Lahiji. Thus, after the Persian treatise Kalid-i bihisht (The Key of Paradise), where he takes up the theory of the equivocalness of being professed by his teacher Rajab Ali, he started to write an extremely complex Commentary on Forty Hadith, but he does not get beyond the twenty-eighth. This is followed by a Book of Forty Treatises, of which only ten or possibly eleven were written. He left a notebook of annotations on the Theology attributed to Aristotle, a work which our philosophers have always continued to read. Finally, there is his magnum opus in commentating the al-Tawhid by al-Shaykh al-Saduq.[1]
