Al-Mutawwal - Imam Mas'ud ibn Umar Taftazani's, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, [d.792h] Arabic language work on eloquence. This edition contains the notes and annotations of Imam Ali Ibn Muhammad Jurjani on the original text.
Imam al-Taftazani' work was a summary of the work titled 'Talkhis al-Miftah' the famous Arabic language study of rhetoric by al-Khatib al-Qazwini (Jalal al-Din Muhammad ibn Abd al-Rahman al-Qazwini, 666/1268 - 739/1338). Al-Qazwini's work was in turn a summary of the the third part of the early Arabic grammar work, 'Miftah al-Ulum' (Key to the Disciplines) by Yusuf ibn Abi Bakr Sakkaki (d. ca 626/1229).

He was of the Hanafi school in matters of Fiqh (Islamic jurisprudence) and a Maturidi with regard to issues of Aqidah (Islamic creed).
He was author of numerous works on Arabic grammar, rhetoric, theology, logic, law, and Qur'anic exegesis (tafsir). His commentaries on well-known works in various fields of Islamic sciences were and are still widely used in madrasahs and Islamic seminaries. He passed away in Samarqand in 1390 Common Era.

He was known and referred to as al-Khatib al-Qazwini (as well as Khatib al-Dimishq - Preacher of Damascus). He served the Umayyad Mosque in Damascus as the Imam. He also became a prominent judge (Qadi) in Syria (al-Sham) and was later appointed the Shafi'i Chief Judge in Cairo.
Khatib al-Qazwini was considered an expert in fiqh, but was more renowned as a master in the art of discourse (rhetoric) hence his title Khatib. Besides Talkhees al Miftah (Summary of the Key) he also wrote Al-Idah (The Clarification) which is an expanded edition of the Talkhees. He was trilingual in Arabic, Persian and Turkish. He passed away in Damascus in 739 hijri (1338 C.E).
