About The Author

Imam Abu Shuja' Al-Isfahani was the Qadi (judge), Imam, scholar of high repute, the ascetic (zahid), a tenacious Faqih (jurist), a righteous and humble ruler (wazir). All such characteristics have been attributed to him by his contemporaries and biographers throughout the ages, such as in the Tabaqat Ash-Shafi'iyyah of Qadi ibn Shuhbah, the Tabaqat of As-Subki, and within the many works of the scholars that are commentaries and supra-commentaries upon his famous Ghayat At-Taqrib.

His agnomen (kunya) is Abu Shuja as well as Abu Tayyib. His full name is Shihabud-Din Ahmad ibn al-husayn [and it reads Al-Hasan in some works] ibn Ahmad al-Asfahani.

Al-Hafith Abu Tahir As-Silafi once reported a hadith from him in his Mujam As-Safr up to Uthman ibn Affan (Radiya Allahu Anhu) that the Prophet Muhammad said: "Whomever builds a masjid for Allah the mighty and majestic Allah will build something like it for him in Jannah."

Abu Tahir As-Silafi [died 576 A.H] said after reporting this narration:

Qadi Abi Shuja is from the most impeccable men of his time! He studied and taught the school of Imam Ash-Shafi'i for 40 years in Basrah. He mentioned this [hadith] to me around 500 A..H. and he lived for an extremely long time after that. I asked him about when he was born and he told me 434 A.H. in Basrah, and that his father was born in Abadaan and his grandfather was from Asbahan.

His biographers mention that when he was the Wazir (vizier), he was just and cared for justice for all. While being a wazir, he would not leave his house until he prayed and recited much of the Qur'an. After retiring from his position of wazir, he traveled to Medinah and became an ascetic, divorcing the needs of this world. 

He became the custodian, cleaning and arranging the Masjid of the Prophet Muhammad until he died! Imam Al-Bayjuri in his Hashiyah states that Imam Abi Shuja died in 488 A.H. and that his grave is near the grave of the Ibrahim, the son of the Prophet Muhammad at Al-Baqi. This date was also professed by Ibn Al-Athir as well. However, 488 is disputed by the witnessing of Abu Tahir As-Silafi of the the Qadi at 500 A.H.
