About The Book

In Quest of Knowledge is the autobiographical account  of Imam Muhammad ibn Idris al-Shafi‘i’s search for knowledge. The story revolves round a son whose sole mission in life is to acquire knowledge, a teacher who lovingly accepts him, and a widow who not only bears with the separation of her only son but also shares his passion for knowledge. Their innate nobility, their ability to suffer for a common cause, their intense love for the Prophet (s) and their infinite trust in Allah give them the dimensions of epic heroes. 

The invaluable lesson which Imam al-Shafi‘i’s story teaches, although it may not have been his main objective, is that Allah befriends and watches over anyone who endeavours to acquire religious knowledge with the intention of disseminating it.

The Story is an English Translation of a portion from  an Urdu Booklet ' Rah-e-Haq Kay Do Musafir' by Islahee uhammad Yousuf Published by Al-Badr Publications, Lohore, Pakistan.
No Arabic Sources are mentioned in the booklet and therefore there is no way of verifying the authenticity of the story, however it is a great lesson for

About Imam Shafi'i

Abu Abdullah Muhammad bin Idris  al- Shafi'i was a descended from the Hashimi family of the Quaraish tribe to which the Holy Prophet (SAW)  belonged.

He was born in Gaza, Palestine, and was raised in Makkah, his parents' home town. He memorized the holy Qur'an while he was still a young child. When he reached fifteen, his knowledge was so thorough, Muslim Ibn Khalid Al-Zinji, the Mufti of Makkah, told him: 'O Abu Abdullah, give fatawa (religious rulings), for by Allah it is time for you to do so!.

 He was active in juridical matters and his teaching eventually led to the school of fiqh named after him. He was a man of vast knowledge and authority. Scholars gave him the honorific title 'Father of Usul Al-Fiqh" (The Patriarch of the Foundation of Islamic Jurisprudence).

Imam Shafi'i died in the Year 204 A.H./ 820 C.E. and  was laid to rest in Egypt.
