Ibn Abi Zayd al-Kirawani (Qayrawani) is Abu Muhammad Abd Allah b Abi Zayd 'Abd Ar-Rahman, may Allah be pleased with him. He was from the tribe of Naffzawa and lived and studied in Qayrawan. He was the Imam of the Malikis in his time and their model. He had a comprehensive grasp of the school of Imam Malik and explained his statements. He had extensive knowledge and a prodigious memory and transmission. His books are ample testimony of that. His writing was fluent, clarifying and defining what he said. He defended the school of Imam Malik and established evidence in its support. Abu Muhammad ibn Abi Zayd died in 386 Hijri.
