Muḥammad ibn Musa al-Khwârizmî an Iraqi Muslim scholar and it is the first of the Muslim mathematicians who have contributed to this field by taking an important role in the progress of mathematics in his own period. He found the concept of Algorithm in mathematics. In some circles, he was given the nickname Abu Ilmi’l-Hâsûb (the father of the account). He carried out important studies in algebra, triangle, astronomy, geography and map drawing. Algebra has carried out systematic and logical studies on the solution of inequalities at second level in the development of the algebra. He with all these studies have contributed to mathematical science and today was a guide to the works done in the field of mathematics.
