move[edit]

Why did you move this to "Tahdhib al-Kamal", this is not al-Mizzi's work, rather Abd al-Ghani al-Maqdisi's.--Striver 22:23, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

Renaming this article[edit]

The title of the artcle is mistaken. The actual title of this book is Al-Kamal fi Asma' al-Rijal as is indicated by the title of al-Mizzi's book, al-Kattani mentions it using Asma in place of Ma'rifah in al-Risalah al-Mustatrafa, pg. 208. Al-Kattani mentions another book entirely with the title, al-Kamal fi Ma'rifah al-Rijal; Ibn al-Najjar al-Bagdadi, a contemporary of Maqdisi, authored a book with this title on the same subject. I haven't seen Maqdisi's referred to using ma'rifah. Supertouch (talk) 05:30, 4 March 2008 (UTC)
