Muhmammad Ibn Ahmad Al Maqdisi
Geographer and author.
Maqdisi's Ahsan At Taqasim Fi Marifat Al Aqalim was based on his twenty years of travel in all the Muslim countries.
He was known as Maqdisi because he was born at Bait-ul-Maqadas.
Maqdisi was also an architect, and so was his grand father, Abu Bakr-al-Banna.
