Abū 'Ubayd al-Jūzjānī, (d.1070),[1] (ابو عبيد جوزجانی) was a Persian physician and chronicler from Guzgan.

He was the famous pupil of Avicenna, whom he first met in Gorgan.[2] He spent many years with his master in Isfahan, becoming his lifetime companion. After Avicenna's death, he completed Avicenna's Autobiography with a concluding section.[3]

The historian Ibn Abi Usaibia refers Avicenna and his close companion Abu Ubayd lived together the residence of Sheikh al-Raiss (which is the title given to Avicenna) and were used to pass each night on studying one by one the Canon and Shifā's instructions.[4]
