Omar Khayyam

Although he is best remembered today for his world-famous Rubaiyat, Ghiyath al-Din Abu'l-Fath Umar ibn Ibrahim Al-Nisaburi al-Khayyami (1048-1131), better known today as Omar Khayyam, was born in Nishapur in May 1048. His father, Ibrahim, may have been a tentmaker (since the name Khayyam means tentmaker). He obtained a thorough education in philosophy and mathematics, and at an early age he attained great fame in the latter field. The Seljuk sultan Jalal-al-Din Malik Shah invited him to collaborate in devising a new calendar, the Jalali or Maliki. While Khayyam was educated in the sciences and philosophy, and he was renowned in his country and time for his scientific achievements, especially astronomy, few of his prose writings survive. His verses attracted little attention until his ruba'iyat ("quatrains") were loosely translated into English by Edward Fitzgerald and published in 1859.
