About The Author

Imam al-Haramayn Dhia' ul-Din Abd al-Malik ibn Yusuf al-Juwayni al-Shafi'i (419-478 AH). Born in a village on the outskirts of Nishapur in Iran.

He was a prominent Muslim scholar known for his gifted intellect in Islamic legal matters. His father, Abu Muhammad 'Abdallah bin Yusef al-Juwayni was a well-known master of Law in the Shafi'i community as well as a Shafi'i teacher and his elder brother, Abu'l-Hasan 'Ali al-Juwayni, was a Sufi teacher of Hadith.

Al-Juwayni traveled to Mecca and Medina in search of an interim home. He taught and studied there in Hijaz for four years. During this time, al-Juwayni became very popular because of his father's prominence in the scholarly world. 

He was invited back to Nishapur by the founder of the Shafii Madrasa, Khwaja Nizam al-Mulk. Upon his return, he was appointed to teach the doctrine of the Ash'arites at the Nizamiyya Madrasa until he died in 478 AH.

Imam Al-Juwayni was the teacher of one of the most influential scholars in the Islamic tradition, particularly Sufism, Imam al-Ghazali.

He was a master of the Qurán and Hadith texts in addition to being well versed in the particular school of Shafi'i and theological practices of the Ash'arite persuasion.
