By studying "Kitab al-Ma'a" the enduring work by Abu Abdullah Muhammad Azdi, we find that this treatise is not just a medical encyclopedia based on medical prescriptions and the treatment of physical and mental diseases; rather, its admirable author, sometimes in the guise of a well-versed jurist, and a scholar of hadith, and a defender of the rights of the patient, created a work with  accumulated knowledge.Altough his work contains latest medical knowledge but he has provided medical references to verses and hadiths for better understanding. The current study aims to present some examples of  references to Quranic verses and hadiths, and  some insightful ethical and legal advices about patients rights in the work of this distinguished physician.The analysis of those advices  shows a combination of medical sciences and religious teachings in his work as a jurist and pious scholar. This research is a content analysis study in which the contents of "Kitab al-Ma'a" were studied and searched, and references to Quran and Hadith were extracted and analyzed. The findings of this research showed that Abu Abdullah Mohammad Azadi, as one of the most prominent doctors of his time, had a complete understanding of verses and traditions and used them to confirm his medical conclusions, emphasized on the observance of medical ethics, and insisted on observing medical ethics and the rights of patients.
