Salah El-Din Mahmud al-Tijani al-Hassani (Arabic: صلاح الدين بن محمود التجاني الحسني, romanized: Ṣalāḥ ad-Dīn Maḥmūd al-Tijānī al-Ḥasanī) is an Egyptian Imam, Mujtahid and a specialist of Hadith affiliated to the Sunni Ash'ari theological school, the Maliki school of jurisprudence, and the Tijani Tariqa.
He is also an orthopedic surgeon and Professor of Medicine at the Faculty of Medicine at the Qasr El Eyni Hospital in Cairo.
Childhood and learning
He was born June 12, 1958 in Cairo, in the district of Sayyeda Zaynab, within a family of descendants of the Prophet Muhammad through the lineage of Imam Hasan ibn Ali. His father, Imam Mahmud al-Hasani, was a scholar and teacher at al-Azhar University, and taught him the basics of Islamic knowledge, including the Quran and related sciences. Then at age 15, he performed his Hajj for the first time, and at 17, he obtained several diplomas and awards in the areas of tajwid, tafsir, hadith and Maliki fiqh, and wrote several epistles on these subjects. At 18 years old, he saw the Prophet in a dream who ordered him to join the Tijani tariqa, then again at the age of 20, to build a Zawiyya that would enable everyone to learn and practice Islam peacefully. The latter is built in the district of Imbaba near Cairo, and has an open access library for which Shaykh Salah El Din Al Tijany has striven to identify the great classics of literature, in order to share them with anyone who wishes, making a point that Muslim(s) are reclaiming the knowledge of their religion. It was officially opened on 1 Muharram 1400.
Over the years, he became a master of Sunni jurisprudence in the Maliki, Hanafi, Shafi'i and Hanbali madhhabs as well as mastering the legal opinions of the defunct madhabs, like that of al-Thawri, al-Awza'i and al-Zahiri. Eventually, becoming a mujtahid, able to issue fatwa directly from the Quran and the Sunnah.
