Al-Abbas instructed Tabari in the Syrian school's variant readings of the Qur'an and transmitted through his father al-Walid the legal views of al-Awza'i , Beirut's prominent jurist from a century earlier.
If so, he did not stay long in the Hijaz. Tabari had a private income from his father while he was still living and then the inheritance. Among Tabari's students was Ibn al-Mughallis , who was also a student of Tabari's own teacher Muhammad bin Dawud al-Zahiri ; Ibn al-Mughallis lavished Tabari with almost excessive praise.
He was well past seventy in the year his History was published. During the intervening years, he was famous, if somewhat controversial, personality.
Among the figures of his age, he had access to sources of information equal to anyone, except, perhaps, those who were directly connected with decision making within the government. Most, if not all, the materials for the histories of al-Mu'tadid, al-Muktafi, and the early years of al-Muqtadir were collected by him about the time the reported events took place.
His accounts are as authentic as one can expect from that period. Tabari was known for his view that Hanbalism was not a legitimate school of thought, as Ibn Hanbal was a compiler of traditions and not a proper jurist.
While Tabari accepted, the Hanbalites did not show up but instead came later to pelt his house with stones again. The constant threat of violence from the Hanbalites hung over Tabari's head for the rest of his life. He was tall and slender  and his hair and beard remained black until he was very old.
He was attentive to his health, avoiding red meat, fats and other foods he deemed unhealthy.
He was seldom sick before his last decade when he suffered from bouts of pleurisy. When he was ill, he treated himself to the approval of physicians. He had studied poetry when young and enjoyed writing, reciting and participating in poetic exchanges. It is said that he was asked in Egypt about al-Tirimmah and was able to recite this 7th century poet's work for Egyptians who had merely heard al-Tirimmah's name.
Such were considered essential for Qur'anic commentary. He knew Persian and was acquainted with the origins of various foreign loan words in Arabic from a number of other languages. He died in Baghdad on February 17, His legal writings were published first and then continued to appear throughout his life.
Next were his commentaries on the Qur'an. Lastly, his history was published. His biographers stress his reverence for scholarship and his keen intent to offer his readers hard fact.
He did not hesitate to express his independent judgement ijtihad. His encyclopedia, 'Annals of the Apostles and Kings', chronicled the History of Islam year by year; an attempt to categorize history from creation till the year A.
By the time he had finished his work, he had gathered all the historical traditions of the Arabs in his voluminous work.
The Muslim world was not slow in showing its appreciation, and this work became more famous than his Commentary of the Holy Qur'an, for there was no other works like that in existence at that time. It is reported that there were at least 20 copies of his encyclopedia in all great libraries in the Muslim world of those days.
Hundreds of copyists earned their living copying his work for use of individuals and libraries. Many of his original works were lost over the passage of time. It was only in the end of the last century that modern scholars pieced together his work so that it could be studied by students in modern times.
