Sayyidina Salamata Al-Azzamy

Location: Jazeeratul Najdy

He is the Shaykh Salamata al-Azzamy Al Qada’iy al Shafi’i al Naqshbandy. He was born (may God be pleased with him) in the year 1298 AH and received the degree of scholarship from the University of al-Azhar. He taught in al-Azhar but he wouldn’t (may God be pleased with him) accept a salary for his instruction. He gave up his salary for his needy Azhari students.

He (may God be pleased with him) took the Naqshbandy path from the pious Qutb Muhammad Ameen al-Kurdi where he later succeeded him as a Shaykh. Shaykh al-Azzamy has authored many great pieces that attest to his high station in knowledge and breadth of discoveries. From his great pieces are “al-Borhan al-Saatia” and “Furqan al-Quran.” When he visited the tomb of the Emissary of Godﷺ he was inspired to compose a poem containing within it spectacular revelations.

The Shaykh al-Azzamy lived 87 years doing good acts and struggling continuously [on God’s path]. His assemblies were filled with Divine light shining through his articulate and concise words that flowed from the river of the Noble Qur’an and Sunnah.

He passed (may God be pleased with him) in the year 1376 AH.
