Malik Daylami (AH 924-969/1518-62 AD) was a famous nasta'liq scribe who originially worked at the library of Sultan Ibrahim Mirza in Mashhad but was called by Shah Tahmasp to Qazvin to write the inscriptions of the Chehel Sutun. He then remained at his court until his death. The famous Shah Tahmasp album in the Topkapi was produced under his supervision (Mehdi Bayani Ahval va Asar-e Khosh-Nevisan, Vol. III, Teheran 1348 sh., pp. 598-609).
