His writings on various religious denominations and sects, such as Kharijites and Shias, and on various ethnic groups such as Persians and Arabs shed significant lights on religious, ethnic and cultural multiplicity and richness of his surroundings. One of his significant works that survived in our time is his book of Majaz al-Qur‟an, on difficult and idiomatic expressions in the Qur‟an, with an important introduction on Quranic stylistics.
