an ambassador for the Moroccan Sultan Moulay Ismail. He is especially well-known because of the account of his journey to Spain in 1690–1691, entitled Rihlat al-Wazir fi Iftikak al-Asir (The Journey of the Minister to Ransom the captive). The purpose of his diplomatic mission was to ransom a number of captives in that country. Al-Ghassani describes the social, religious and administrative characteristics of Spanish life and culture. At the end of his account he writes the story of the conquest of Andalusia. Much of the account is filled with regret over the loss of the country to the Christians.
