About Imam Tahawi :
He is Imam Abu Ja'far Ahmad bin
Muhammad bin Salamah bin Salmah bin `Abd al Malik bin Salmah bin Sulaim
bin Sulaiman bin Jawab al-Azdi, may Allah be pleased with him,
popularly known as Imam al-Tahawi, after his birth-place in Egypt, is
among the most outstanding authorities of the Islamic world on Hadith and fiqh
(jurisprudence). He lived 239-321 A.H., an epoch when both the direct
and indirect disciples of the four Imams: Imam Abu Hanifah, Imam Malik,
Imam Shafi'i and Imam Ahmad bin Hanbal - were teaching and practicing.
This period was the zenith of Hadith and fiqh studies, and
Imam Tahawi studied with all the living authorities of the day. He
began as a student of his maternal uncle, Isma'il bin Yahya Muzni, a
leading disciple of Imam Shafi'i. Instinctively, however, Imam Tahawi
felt drawn to the corpus of Imam Abu Hanifah's works. Indeed, he had
seen his uncle and teacher turning to the works of Hanafi scholars to resolve thorny issues of Fiqh, drawing heavily on the writings of Imam Muhammad Ibn al-Hasan al-Shaybani and Imam Abu Yusuf, who had codified Hanafi fiqh. This led Imam Tahawi to devote his whole attention to studying the Hanafi works and he eventually joined the Hanafi school.
Imam Tahawi, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi, stands out not only as a prominent follower of the Hanafi school
but, in view or his vast erudition and remarkable powers of
assimilation, as one of its leading scholars. His monumental scholarly
works, such as Sharh Ma'ani al-Athar and Mushkil al-Athar, are encyclopaedic in scope and have long been regarded as indispensable for training students of fiqh. Imam Abu Ja'far
al-Tahawi lived until 321/933.

'Abd al-Ghani al-Ghunaymi al-Maydani al-Dimashqi [d.1298 / 1880 or
1881], was born and raised in the Maydan district of Damascus in 1222h. He was an eminent jurist and legal theorist (usuli) in the Hanafi school as well as a traditionalist (muḥaddith) and grammarian (nahwi).
After having memorised the noble Qur'an he began studying the Islamic
sciences under the foremost scholars of Damascus of the time. As well as
his expertise in Islamic Law, he was also renowned for his exemplary
piety. He is most famous for his popular commentary on the Hanafi legal classic Mukhtasar al-Quduri, known simply as Al-Lubab.
