Abd al-Rafe Heravi was a 12th-century Persian poet, grammarian, and physician, who served at the court of the Ghaznavid Sultan Khusrau Malik in the Ghaznavid capital of Lahore. When the Ghurids under Mu'izz al-Din Muhammad invaded and captured Lahore, Heravi then began serving the Ghurids. Much of his work has been lost and he is mostly known by the works of several other Persian scholars.
