Mohammed Ibn Abi Bakr al-Zuhri (Arabic: محمد بن أبي بكر الزهري‎) of Granada (fl. 1130s–1150s) was a geographer. He was the writer of a notable work, Kitab al-Jaghrafiyya (Book of Geography). Al-Zuhri was able to use the writings of the geographers of the reign of Caliph Al-Ma'mun of Baghdad (d. 456/1068).[1] He belonged to the Arab tribe of Banu Zuhrah.[2] Al-Zuhri died between 1154 and 1161.
