About the Author :
He is al-Shaykh Ahmad ibn al-Amin al-Shinqiti, (al-Shanqiti) [1280–1331 after Hijri] - [1863 –1913 Common Era]. His lineage can be traced to Sayyiduna Abu Bakr as-Siddiq, radi Allahu ta'ala anhu, came from a scholarly family and tribe in present day Mauritania renowned for its knowledge and active implementation of the deen.
Imam al-Shinqiti was the first Mauritanian author to be published in print. He was born in Mederdra, in the south of present-day Mauritania. A member of the scholarly and pious tribe (zawaya, or zwaya), he received a religious and intellectual education appropriate to his social status, including Arabic language and literature and the Islamic Sciences.
Imam Jalal-Al-Din Al-Suyuti, may Allah be pleased with him, (849–911 AH / 1445–1505 CE) was born, lived and was buried in Cairo. The ascription ‘Al-Suyuti’
is a reference to Asyut, a town in Upper Egypt from which his family
hailed. Known as the ‘son of books’ from the numerous books he studied
and referred to in his works, he could equally be called the ‘father of
books’ because of the many books he produced.
From his early
years, Al-Suyuti devoted his life to learning, reading, writing and
teaching, holding notable positions in those fields in the city of Cairo
at a time when it was the centre of Islamic learning par excellence. He
was an outstanding scholar, second to none in the field of Qur'anic
Sciences (‘Ulum Al-Qur’an), in which he produced many well-known
works. However, being the all-round scholar that he was, his
contributions covered almost all the fields of Arabic, the Qur’an, the
Traditions (hadith) and History. His works were of such superb
quality that they earned him the respect of his generation and the
generations that followed to the present day. Most important of these in
the field of Quranic Sciences was his Al-Itqān.
