Abraham al-Basir (called the Seer, a euphemism for 'the Blind') was a widely traveled theologian, a polyglot, and a student of Rabbanite lore. He was held in high esteem by the Karaites as a religious authority. His works include al-Muhtawi ('The Compendium, ' or, in Hebrew, Sefer Ne'mot) , a theological study which reveals deep Mu? Tazilite influence. Consisting of 40 chapters, the book presents a Karaite adaptation of the kalam doctrines, as well as polemics against Christians and pagans. He also left an epitome of his major work, al-Tamyiz, and a book on inheritance and on ritual cleanliness, al-Istibsar ('Investigation') . " - EJ 2008, Judeo-Arabic Literature.
