Who can name the Shaykh from Alexandria that dared to shush the Sultan of Egypt, Palestine, Syria and Yemen (Salah ad-Deen Ibn Ayyub) for talking during his study circle in the masjid, by saying to Salah ad-Deen:

quote:

"What is this? We are reading the Hadeeth of the Prophet (sallallaahu alayhi wa salam) and you are talking?"


So he fell silent and listened after that.

Assalaamu alaikum,

I think it was Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah, rahimahullaah.

wa alaykumus salaam wa rahmatullaah

May Allaah bless you Brother Husayn!

However, there was approximately 70 years between the death of Salah ad-Deen (rahimahullaah) and the birth of Shaykhul-Islaam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimahullaah), so that is incorrect

Assalaamu 'alaikum,

well, it can't be Ash Shafi'i (rahimahullah) they lived in different times. I think Ibn Abdul Barr went through Misr--he lived during that time as did Ibn Qudamah al maqdisi and also Ibn Qudamah left Damascus to join Salahu Deen in his expedition against the Franks in 573AH, So, I am guessing though--Al Maqdisi.

Assalaamu 'alaikum

I take that back-as Ibn Qudamah Al Maqdisi is, well--Al Maqdisi, and you said the 'Aalim was from Alexandria.

So I don't know--sorry

Brother Abu Hamza, that's an excellent guess and yes they were certainly contemporaries, but NO...  Ibn Qudamah (rahimahullaah) is not the one!  

If nobody else responds I will post the answer this weekend insha'Allaah

Here's a hint:

His hometown was Isfahan.  After leaving Isfahan he travelled to various lands and met many senior scholars of Hadeeth from whom he learned narration, the foundations of Hadeeth and Hadeeth terminology. He eventually traveled to Baghdad, then to Damascus where he taught (for two years) before permanently settling in Alexandria. Due to his seeking knowledge and teaching he did not marry until he was almost 60!
He was called a Faqeeh of the madhhab of Imaam as-Shafi'i.

Bismillaah walhamdulillaah was salaatu was salaam 'ala Rasulillaah...


ANSWER:

He was known during his time as Al-Haafidh as-Salafi

Born: 475 AH - in Isfahan

Died: 576 AH - in Alexandria


His full name was:  al-Haafidh Aboo at-Taahir Ahmad ibn Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn
Muhammad as-Salafi al-Isfahani

***Not to be confused with Imad ad-Deen al-Isfahani

In addition to his knowledge of Hadeeth, he was also well versed in the different recitations of the Qur'an.

It has been said that al-Madrasah al-'Adiliyah was sometimes called al-Madrasah as-Salafiyyah in honor of him (because he taught for two years in Damascus).


Abd al-Qadir al-Rahawi said of him:

quote:
I have heard that during his stay in Alexandria, he did not go out to any garden or attend any event for entertainment except on one occasion; instead he stayed in his school. Whenever we entered upon him, we always found him studying something. He never saw the lighthouse of Alexandria except through a small window in his house.


and also:

quote:
We hardly ever entered upon him but we see him reading something. He loved books very much and was very keen to collect and own books. He had a large collection of various books but he did not have enough time to read them all. When he died, they found that most of them had rotted and the pages had stuck to one another, because of the humidity in Alexandria, which led to many of them being ruined.



And Allaah Subhanahu wa Ta'ala knows best!
