    Default Shaikh Abdulwahhab Sha'rani



    Anyone have any background information about Shaikh Abdulwahhab Sha'rani ?

    What about his book Tanbih Al Mughtareen (also known as Akhlaq e Salaf)?

    Wa'alaykum Salaam,

    Small biography of the Shafi'i Imam 'Abd al-Wahab Sha'rani (raheemahullah) taken from Umdatul Salik, page 1023, x17;

    'Abd al-Wahab Sha'rani(c6.5) is 'Abd al-Wahab ibn Ahmad ibn 'Ali al-Hanafi al-Sha'rani, born in 898/1493 in Qalqanshada, Egypt. A Shafi'i scholar and prolific author of works in Sufism, Sacred Law, and tenets of faith, he is probably most famous in the legal sphere for his classic, al-Mizan al-kubra [The supreme scale], in which he comparatively studies the rulings of all four Sunni schools of Sacred Law as if they were a single school, treating their differences according to their difficulty as either strictness ('azima) or dispensation (rukhsa). He was also a sheikh and adept in Sufism, among its outstanding Arab spokesmen, showing the unity between law and way in works that have remained popular to this day, among them Lata'if al-minan wa al-akhlaq [Subtleties of gifts and character], Lawaqih al-anwar al-qudsiyya [The fecundating sacred illuminations], and Kitab al-yawaqit wa al-jawahir fi bayan 'agaid al-akabir[The book of rubies and jewls: an explanation of the tenents of faith of mystic luminaries]. He died in Cairo in 973/1565(ibid.,4.180-81;and n).
    I don't have any information regarding the book you are inquiring about.
