The light of the world : astronomy in al-Andalus by Joseph Ibn Naḥmias( )

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 759 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book contains an edition--with an extensive introduction, translation and commentary--of The Light of the World, a text on theoretical astronomy by Joseph Ibn Naḥmias, composed in Judeo-Arabic around 1400 C.E. in the Iberian Peninsula. As the only text on theoretical astronomy written by a Jew in any variety of Arabic, this work is evidence for a continuing relationship between Jewish and Islamic thought in the late fourteenth and early fifteenth centuries.

Nisaburi did not consider himself a scientist alone, being commissioned by his patrons to work in a variety of fields. "Islam and Science" examines in detail the relationship between the metaphysics of Nisaburi's science, and statements he made in his Qur'an commentary and in other non-scientific writings. Sources suggest that Nisaburi was inspired to
