Imam 'Abd al-Hayy al-Lacknawi [1264 - 1304 after Hijri]
is 'Abu l-Hasanat 'Abd al-Hayy bin Muhammad 'Abd al-Haleem al-Ansari
al-Lakhnawi (1264-1304 AH / 1848-1887 CE). He was the author of many
famous works and a renowned scholar of his time. He was born in Banda,
India and was a descendend from the Sahabah
- Sayyidina Abu Ayyub al-Ansari, radi Allahu ta'ala anhu
His predecessors emigrated from Madinah Munawwarah to Hirat, then to
Lahore, Delhi and finally to Sihala and Firangi Mahal near Lucknow.
'Abd al-Hayy memorised the Noble Qur'an at the age of ten. He studied
some Persian books under his learned father and continued learning many
sciences, so much so that he began teaching many of the books he had
learnt himself under various scholars. The Mufti of Makkah, Shaykh Ahmad
ibn Zain Dahlan, rahmatullahi ta'ala 'alayhi
, granted him permission for all isnad
(chain of narration) from Al-Hidayah
of Marghinanai as well as what he had learnt from all his teachers.
He passed away in Rabi ul Awwal
1304h. at the young age of 39 and was buried in the graveyard of his ancestors.
