In the golden age of Muslim literature; though a period of social decay and political anarchy, our author Utmän b. Ginni was born and raised in the metropolitan city of Mosul. The reports are at variance regarding his date of birth. According to most. of the medieval biographers, his birth was before 330/941, while another report goes a bit earlier to fix his death vaguely before 300/912. From a few contemporary events, some researchers asserted that he was born in 320/932. Another date given is 302/914.
