The Biography of Imam Az-Zuhri [Died 124 A.H.]This is the biography of an upright scholar, an erudite narrator of hadith, a brilliant, celebrated and generous scholar: Imam Az-Zuhri. When he died - may Allah have mercy upon him, there was no one on the surface of the earth more knowledgeable than him. Ibn Taymiyyah sufficiently described him in these succinct by remarkable words: Az-Zohri has guarded Islam for about seventy years.This towering personality, Muhammad ibn Muslim ibn Shihab AzZuhri was a model for the scholars and an exemplar for the pious. He was an embodiment of the generosity. When he was in a difficult situation, he did not deviate from the truth and when the bounties of the world were opened for him he did not stray. May Allah bestow His expansive mercy upon him and upon the scholars of this Ummah in particular and all the Muslims in general.PrefaceThis is a series of biographies of some scholars and some Muhaddiththeen of this Ummah which Allah has endowed with glory and sublimity till the Day of Judgement. We will focus on private and public aspects of the lives of these scholars, such as their characteristics, manners, etiquettes, knowledge, religiosity and worship. How dire our need to these qualities in this age is! For there is no way by which this Ummah can reclaim its lost glory and strength except by adopting those qualities that were the characteristics of our predecessors, and to revive what has become extinct of these attributes.Stories of the lives of these scholars have, for some time now, become unknown to many Muslims, let alone non-Muslims. This led to the extinction of the light by which the confused find guidance. This light is waiting to be rekindled so that the path [to success in this world and the Hereafter] might continue to be illuminated. People are now fed up with mere talks. They now want to see the reality of this religion, as was the case during the time of those scholars and other Muslims who followed them
