Imam Jalal al-Din al-Suyu?i (849–911 AH) was one of the most prolific and significant scholars of Islamic history, having authored around 600 works, many of which have retained a lofty position in the traditional syllabi of Islamic centres of learning.
Shaykh Is?aq ?Azuz al-Makki (1330–1415 AH) was a prominent Meccan scholar, who was involved in the administration of Islamic education for several decades in the ?ijaz. Not only did he study with a number of leading scholars of his time, but he also wrote on a broad range of topics.
