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.
