ʿAbdul Malik al-Aṣmaʿī al-Bāhilī (died 831 CE / 216 AH) is one of the primary authorities on the Arabic language. His Ishtiqāq contains rare information, perhaps not found anywhere else, on the origins of certain Arabic words. Al-Aṣmaʿī studied under some of the great scholars of Islamic history, including Mālik ibn Anas, Sufyān al-Thawrī, al-Khalīl b. Aḥmad al-Farāhīdī, Ibn Idrīs al-Shāfiʿī, Ibn al-ʿAlāʾ Abū ʿAmr al-Baṣrī and al-Kisāʾī.
