About the Author :

He is Imam 'Abdallah b. Mujammad Najib Sirajuddin al-HalabI al-Husayni, rahimahullah, and is one of greatest scholars that the Syrian city of Aleppo—known in  the Levant as “the city of scholars”—has ever known. He was a true friend of Allah Almighty, an extraordinary saint who dedicated his entire life to the service of Islam. His qualities were many and his skills outstanding.

Imam 'Abdallah, known as “the Light of Aleppo,” was a renowned spiritual master of the Rifa'i path, an expert in Hanafi jurisprudence, a Sufi' and brilliant exegete of the Qur'an, as well as a scholar and Hafidh of Hadith, having memorised more than one hundred thousand traditions. He was most famous, however, for his immense and intense love for our master Muhammad, the Messenger of Allah.

Imam 'Abdallah wrote more than thirty books dealing with Islamic spirituality, creed, ethics, and the noble manners of the Messenger of Allah, the sciences of Hadith and exegesis of the Qur'an. Imam 'Abdallah’s students were numerous, many of them becoming prominent scholars themselves, such as his son Shaykh Ahmad Sirajuddin, his nephew and son-in-law Shaykh Nur al-Din 'Itr,  Shaykh Samir  al-Nass, Shaykh Muhammad 'Awwama  and Shaykh Muhammadal-Ninowy, may Allah preserve them.

Following a surgical operation carried out towards the end of his life, the health of Imam 'Abdallah deteriorated. On the 4th of March 2002 CE [1422 H.] he returned to his Lord. The news of his passing was announced throughout the Muslim world and covered it with a veil of sorrow. Imam 'Abdallah Sirajuddin al-Husayni was buried in the Sha?b?niyya complex, next to the graves of its Ottoman founders.
