Shaykh Ahmad bin al-Bashir al-Qalaawi ash-Shinqeeti (1216 AH/1802 CE – 1276 AH/1853 CE), whose lineage can be traced to Abu Bakr as- Siddeeq, may Allah be pleased with him, came from a family and tribe in present day Mauritania renowned for its knowledge and active implementation of the deen. Although he himself refrained from any sufic commentary on Ibn Ashir’s work, he was recognised as a wali (saint) by the men of this science around him.

Dr Yate (Cantab.) has translated works from Arabic, Persian, German and French, and, in collaboration with others, from Turkish. He teaches Arabic and Fiqh at the Weimar Institute, is a Founding fellow of The Muslim Faculty of Advanced Studies, and is active on the shari'at board of the World Islamic Mint.
