He was recommended by Muhammad, and treated Sa`d ibn Abi Waqqas and Abu Bakr. When the latter was he was dying, he designated his illness as poisoning.

Trained in Yemen,[1] he is reported to have written a book named Dialog in Medicine. He was the chief physician and teacher at the Academy of Gundishapur in Persia.[citation needed]

He was half brother of Nufay ibn al-Harith (also known as Abu Bakra bin Kalada al-Thaqafi at-Thaifi).

Some historians maintain that he received his medical education at the Jundishapur medical school of Persia where he learnt the teachings of Aristotle and Galen.[2]
