Taqi al-Din Muhammad ibn Ahmad al-Fasi (Arabic: تقي الدين أبي الطيب محمد بن أحمد الفاسي‎, 8 September 1373 Mecca, Hejaz– 6 July 1429 Mecca, Hejaz) was a Muslim scholar, hafith, faqih, historian, and Maliki qadi (judge) in Mecca.[1]

He is best known for his works on the history of Mecca and its rulers and notable natives, which reached around 18 works.[2] He also wrote on the genealogies of some Arab tribes of Tihamah.

He was born on Thursday, 8 September 1373 in Mecca, Hejaz, now Saudi Arabia, but spent part of his early life in al-Madinah al-Nabawiyah. He eventually returned to Mecca where he took knowledge from its scholars.[3] He went blind four years before his death in 1425 AD. He died on Wednesday 6 July 1429 at the age of 55 in Mecca, Hejaz, Arabian Peninsula, now Saudi Arabia.
