All the books refer to him as an Iranian who was born, lived, and died in Neyshabur, what's the source for claiming that he was an Arab? --Mardavich 22:39, 14 March 2007 (UTC)
Being an Arab does not mean Not Iranian (Iranian Arab-Iranian Kurd-Iranian Azari..etc), Iran is A country Not ethnic group.Almunjid (Fi Alalam) Encyclopedia (Catholic Encyclopedia page 355)says that he was an Arab.
His name sarts with al where usually Persian names does not have this Al. Also his original work was In Arabic. So at least you should mention that.--Aziz1005 19:20, 15 March 2007 (UTC)
All Persians at that time had "al" before their names. --Mardavich 21:13, 17 March 2007 (UTC)
