Abu Muqri (or Miqra) Mohammed ibn Ali al-Battiwi (fl. 1331) was a Moroccan astronomer who wrote a poem (urzaja) on the calendar, astronomy and the determination of the hours of prayer. It has been commented upon by o.a. Abd al-Rahman al-Jadiri (1375–1416) and Al-Qalasadi (1412–1487).[1][2] He was a native of the Rif region.
