Among other writers and authors in this field are the following:

He was the first person from among our friends who wrote in the field on the lines which are known to us. He wrote a treatise titled Al-Bidayah Fi Ilm-id-Dirayah and added to it a comprehensive commentary which has since been published. He also wrote another treatise on this subject, titled Ghunyat-ul-Qasidin Fi Ma’rifat-i-Istilahat-ul-Muhaddithin. He was martyred in 966 AH.

3.Ash-Shaikh Hussain Bin Abdus Samad Al-Aamili Al-Jubai Al-Harithi Al-Hamadani

He was a student of Ash-Shahid-uth-Thani and the father of Ash-Shaikh Al-Baha’i. He wrote a treatise on this subject and titled it as Wusul-ul-Akhyar Ila Usul-il-Akhbar. It is found in print. He died in 987 AH.

4.Ash-Shaikh Hassan Ibn Ash-Shahid-ith-Thani

In the preface to his book Muntaqal Jaman Fil Ahadith-is-Sahih Wal ihsan he discussed the principal of Ilm-ul-Hadith. He died in 1031 AH.

5.Ash-Shaikh Baha-ud-din Aamili

He wrote a book named Al-Wajizah Fi Ilm-id-Dirayah but it is very brief. He died in 1031 AH

6.Abu Yula Humza Bin Qasim Al-Alawi.

He was from among the decendents of Abbas Bin Ali Bin Ali Abi Talib (A.S). According to An-Najashi, he wrote a book on biography which he reported from Imam Jafar Sadiq (A.S). An Najashi describes this book as good. He died in the third century.

7.Abu Abdullah Muhammad Bin Al-Hassan Bin Ali Al-Muharibi.

An-Najashi reports that he wrote a book on Rijal which was heard by a group of Shiites who has praised it. An-Najashi has given the authority for this book. He died during third and fourth century.

8.Abu Muhammad Abdullah Bin Jabalah Bin Hayyan Bin Abjar Al-Kinani Al-Kufi

According to An-Najashi, he wrote a book on Rijal. Either he or Al-Yaqtini (Whose account will follow) or Muhammad Bin Khalid Al-Barqi was the first one to write a book in this field because all the three lived in the same age. As-Suyuti has said in Al-Awail that the first one to write a book on Rijal was Shubah. But Shubah died in 260 AH and therefore, Ibn Jabalah is senior to him because he died in 219 AH.
