Jalaluddin al-Suyuti

Milad by Imam Jalaluddin Al Auyuti

Imam Jalal al-Din al-Suyuti, also known as Ibn al-Suyuti, was a mujtahid imam and reformer of the tenth Islamic century.

Al-Suyuti was a prominent Hadith Master, jurist, Sufi, philologist, and historian, who authored works in virtually every Islamic science.

Early Life & Education

Born to a Turkish mother and a father of Persian origin, Al-Suyuti was born in 849 AH and died in 911 AH in Cairo. His full name was Abd al-Rahman ibn Kamal al-Din Abi Bakr ibn Muhammad ibn Sabiq al-Din Jalal al-Din al-Misri al-Suyuti al-Shafi’i al-Ashari.

Al-Suyuti was raised as an orphan in Cairo. He memorized the Qur'an at the age of eight, followed by several complete works of Sacred Law, fundamentals of jurisprudence, and Arabic grammar.

He then devoted his life to studying the Sacred Sciences under approximately 150 sheikhs. Among them were the foremost Shafii and Hanafi sheikhs at the time, such as

Sheikh al-Islam Siraj al-Din al-Bulqini, with whom he studied Shafi’i jurisprudence

the Hadith scholar Sheikh al-Islam Sharaf al-Din al-Munawi, with whom he read Qur'anic exegesis and who commented on al-Suyuti's Al-jami al-saghir in a book entitled Fayd al-Qadir

Taqi al-Din al-Shamani, with whom he studied Hadith and the sciences of Arabic

Jalal al-Din al-Mahalli, a specialist in the principles of the law, together with whom he compiled the most widespread, condensed commentary on the Qur'an of our time: Tafsir al-Jalalayn.

the Hanafi sheikh Shihab al-Din al-Sharmisahi

Sheikh Muhyi al-Din al-Kafayji

the Hadith Master Sayf al-Din Qasim ibn Qatlubagha.

In the pursuit of knowledge, al-Suyuti travelled to Damascus, the Hejaz, Yemen, India and Morocco, as well as to centers of learning in Egypt such as Mahalla, Dumyat, and Fayyum.

Teaching Career

Al-Suyuti spent some time as the head teacher of Hadith at the Shaykhuniyya school in Cairo, at the recommendation of Imam Kamal al-Din ibn al-Humam. He then took up the same position at Baybarsiyya, but was dismissed due to complaints from other sheikhs whom he had replaced.

After this, he retired into scholarly seclusion, and did not return to the field of teaching.

Withdrawal From Public Life

Ibn Iyas, in Tarikh Misr, reveals that when al-Suyuti reached forty years of age, he abandoned the company of men for the solitude of the garden of al-Miqyas, by the side of the river Nile, where he avoided his former colleagues as though he had never known them. It was there that he authored the majority of his nearly 600 books and treatises.

Wealthy Muslims and princes would visit him with offers of money and gifts but he rejected them and also refused the Sultan many times when he requested al-Suyuti’s presence. He once said to the Sultan's envoy:

“Do not ever come back to us with a gift, for in truth Allah has put an end to all such needs for us.”

Scholarship, Works, & Legacy

Al-Suyuti was blessed with great success in his years of solitude, and made significant contributions in almost every field of Islamic knowledge.

Among his most prominent works are:

His ten-volume Hadith collection Jam al-Jawami ('The Collection of Collections')

His Qur'anic exegesis Tafsir al-Jalalayn ('Commentary of the Two Jalals') in which he finished the second half of an uncompleted manuscript by Jalal al-Din Mahalli in just forty days

His classic commentary on the sciences of Hadith Tadrib al-Rawi fi Sharh Taqrib al-Nawawi ('The Training of the Hadith Transmitter: An Exegesis of Nawawi's "The Facilitation"')

The editors of Dalil Makhtutat al-Suyuti ('Guide to al-Suyuti's Manuscripts') have listed 723 works to his name.

Examples Of His Works

Some of al-Suyuti's are brief fatwas which do not exceed four pages, such as his notes on the hadith 'Whoever says: "I am knowledgeable" he is ignorant,' entitled Adhab al-Manahil fi Hadith Man Qala Ana Alim.

The following discussion demonstrates the depth & complexity of al-Suyuti's analysis, even in his shortest works.
