Ibn Zuhr's only son Abu Bakr Muhammad ibn 'Abd al-Malik, nicknamed al-Hafid (the grandson), was born in Seville in 1110-1111 (or 1113-1114), and died in 1199. He was a successful physician, but was more famous among his contemporaries as a man of letters and a poet, but a treatise on eye diseases is ascribed to him. Just like his father, after serving the Almoravid rulers, he also served their successors, the Almohads, serving both Abu Yaqub Yussuf al-Mansur, and then Al-Nassir.
