About Shaykh 'Awwamah
Shaykh Muhammad ‘Awwamah was born in Aleppo in Syria in 1940 (1358). He began his journey and quest for knowledge in 1953 (1373) when he regularly attended the lessons conducted by Shaykh Muhammad al-Salqini. In his early days as a student, he studied under Shaykh ‘Abdullah Sirajuddin.
From 1958 (1378), he began studying under Shaykh ‘Abdul Fatta Abu Ghudda. He eventually became known for his affiliation to these two illustrious and erudite scholars and he is regarded as their foremost student. In 1962 (1382 AH) he enrolled at the Faculty of Shari‘ah and in this year Shaykh ‘Abdullah Sirajuddin appointed him as a teacher at Madrasa al-Sha‘baniyya. He taught there until 1980 (1400).
In 1959 (1379) he travelled to Egypt where he met a number of senior scholars such as the two Moroccan brothers, Shaykh Ahmad and Shaykh ‘Abdullah al-Ghumari, Shaykh ‘Abdul Wahhab ‘Abdul Latif and Shaykh Muhammad Abu Zahra. He contributed greatly to an Islamic academic revival in Aleppo and was appointed from a young age as a teacher at Jami‘ al-Rawfa. His teacher, Shaykh ‘Abdul Fatta Abu Ghudda described him as “yesterday's student, today's colleague” and “the excellent muhaqqiq (researcher and editor)”.
In about 1980 (1400) he moved to Medina in Saudi Arabia where he joined the Islamic University and established the Center for Academic Research which later became known as the Center for Serving the Sunnah and the Sirah. It was from this center that he began editing the book, Ithaf al-Mahara. In 1986 (1406), he established an office for editing the Islamic Heritage which is affiliated to Dar al-Qibla. Shaykh ‘Awwamah may be described as a person of clear illuminated thought and methodology.
This is apparent in his writing, particularly in Athar al-Hadith al-Sharif fi Ikhtilaf al-A’immat al-Fuqaha and his book Adab al-Ikhtilaf fi Masa’il al-‘Ilm wal-Din. Shaykh Muhammad Sa‘id al-anCawi who is a famous and erudite scholar said: “I am not aware of anyone alive more knowledgeable than him in tahqiq.”
