About the Author :

He is Shams al-Din Muhammad ibn `Abd al-Rahman al-Sakhawi, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, (1428/831 AH - 1497/902 AH). He was a reputable Shafi'i, hadith scholar and historian who was born in Cairo. "Al-Sakhawi" refers to the village of Sakha in Egypt, where his relatives descended. He was a prolific writer that excelled in the knowledge of hadith, tafsir, literature, and history. His proficiency in hadith has its influences trace back heavily on his Shaykh ; Al-Hafidh Ibn Hajar al-'Asqalani, may Allah be pleased with him.


In his biography of the famous men of his time entitled al-Daw' al-Lami` al-Sakhawi reveals that his father Zayn al-Din `Abd al-Rahman ibn Muhammad (d. 874) was a Cairo-born Sufi of great piety, and a member of the Baybarsiyya Sufi community where Ibn Hajar, Sakhawi's teacher, taught for forty years.


In the section of his al-Jawahir al-Mukallala fi al-Akhbar al-Musalsala devoted to the transmission of hadith through chains formed exclusively of Sufi narrators, Al-Sakhawi states that he himself had received the Sufi path from Zayn al-Din Ridwan al-Muqri' in Cairo.


In the same work Imam al-Sakhawi also mentions several of his teachers and students of hadith who were Sufis. Here are the names of some of them, together with the words used by him to describe them in his biographical work al-Daw' al-Lami`:


Badr al-Din Hussayn ibn Siddiq al-Yamani al-Ahdal (d. 903): al-Sakhawi gave him a comprehensive ijaza granting him permission to teach all of his books.


Abu al-Fath Muhammad ibn Abi Bakr al-Madani al-Maraghi (d. 859): al-Sakhawi took hadith from him. He was head of two Sufi khanqas in Cairo, the Zamamiyya and the Jamaliyya. He led a life of seclusion for the most part, and wrote a commentary on Imam al-Nawawi's manual of Law Minhaj al-Talibin, and an epitome of Ibn Hajar's Fath al-bari because of his defense of Ibn `Arabi, he was murdered in front of the Ka`ba by a fanatic.


Taqi al-Din Abu Bakr ibn Muhammad al-Qalqashandi (d. 867), also called `Abd Allah. He received the Sufi khirqa or cloak of authority in Cairo. He is said to have read the whole of Sahih al-Bukhari in three days while in Mecca. He lived in al-Quds, where al-Sakhawi met him and took hadith from him.


Thiqat al-Din Abu al-`Abbas Ahmad ibn Muhammad al-`Uqbi (d. 861). He taught hadith and tajwid in Mecca, where al-Sakhawi studied under him.


Imam al-Sakhawi passed away in 902 hijri in Madinah al-Munawwarah.
