Yahya ibn Ma'in (Arabic: يحيى بن معين‎‎) was a classical Islamic scholar[3] of Persian[8] origin.

He was a close friend of Ahmad ibn Hanbal and is often quoted regarding Ilm ar-Rijal.[9] Alongside Ibn Hanbal, Ali ibn al-Madini and Ibn Abi Shaybah, Ibn Ma'in has been considered by many Muslim specialists in hadith to be one of the four most significant authors in the field.[10]
