Ali ibn Muhammad Al-Qayrawani Al-Lakhmi (1006 – 1085 CE) (390 AH – 478 AH ), also known as Imam al-Lakhmi was a famous Tunisian jurist in the Maliki school of Sunni Islamic Law. He was one of the most important figures in the school and his opinions are still well known and respected to this day. Al-Lakhmi was one of four jurists whose positions were held as authoritative by Khalil ibn Ishaq in his Mukhtassar (one of the most important of the later texts in the relied upon positions of the school).
At-Tabsirah is one of the founding books in the Madhhab, it is a commentary to the most famous of them al-Moudawanah, by Imam al-Lakhmi, one of the imams of the prestigious Tunisian school of the time.
This book is a reference that takes up the great books that preceded it as al-Wadiha of ibn Habib and which will then be taken up by the Malikite scholars later as ibn Ruchd or al-Khalil in his Mukhtasar.
He broadly develops questions and opinions and with much detail.
