Answer :

Al-Biruni was born in 973 C.E., in Khwarizm in present day Uzbekistan. He received best education and was well versed in many languages including Syrian, Persian, Hebrew and Sanskrit. He was not aware of the Greek language but he was completely familiar with the works of Plato and Aristotle and other Greek philosopher. He read their work through Arabic translation. Mahmud of Ghazni attacked Khwarizm in 101 C.E. and took back many scholars and poets to his capital. Al-Biruni was one of them. He came over there as a hostage but gradually developed a liking for the city. When Al-Biruni was in Ghazni, he developed keen interest in India. He spent the rest of the life over there and died at the age of 70.
