He died in 672 A.H.
Shaikh Maitham al-Bahrani wrote a treatise on Aadabul Bahth (Criticism and discussion).

Shahid-uth-Thani Shaikh Zain-ud-Din bin Ali al-'Aamili wrote Munyat-ul-Murid Fi Aadab-il-Mufid-i-Wal-Mustafid. It is a big book very comprehensive and has no parallel. Although the book was about the benefactor (al-Mufid) and the beneficiary (al-Mustafid), but he has put together all the fundamentals of Ethics and Morals. He was martyred in 966 A.H.
