The correspondence between Ibn Sina and al-Biruni (al-As'ilah wa'l-ajwibah) contains the complete text of the response of Abu Said al-Ma'sumi to the objections of al-Biruni regarding the set of eight questions posed by him to Ibn Sina. Al-Biruni had not been satisfied with Ibn Sina's initial response and had replied in short, categorical statements showing his dissatisfaction. In this eighth and final installment, Ibn Sina's student and friend, al-Ma'sumi, responds to these objections in turn in terse language, indicating his exasperation with al-Biruni.
