Abu Bakr Al-Baqillani (Arabic: أبو بكر الباقلاني) was an Ashari Islamic scholar and Maliki lawyer, influential in popularising SunniAsharism.

Born in Basramarker c. 950, he spent most of his life in Baghdad, and studied under disciples of al-Ash'ari. He held the office of chief Qadi outside the capital of the Caliphate. He died on 5 June 1013 (402AH).

He supported the doctrine of the apologetic miracle being proof of prophecy, the noncreation of the Quran, intercession, and the possibility of seeing God.

His fifty two volumous books are regarded as classical works on expounding the Qur'an, its the textual integrity, defending orthodoxy and Islam, the miracles of the prophethood, summaries of the Sunni creed, defence of the Sunni position regarding the Imamate (Caliphate), rebutting Brahmanism, Dualism, Trinitarianism, etc.

Ibn Taymiyya called al-Baqillani 'the best of the Ash'ari mutakallimun, unrivalled by any predecessor or successor'.
