The Syrian city of Aleppo is famous for its rich history of Islamic scholarship; hence, it is often referred to as 'the city of scholars'. Aleppo is the cradle of many pious and leading scholars of Islam. Amongst them was the Friend and Gnostic of Allāh `azza wa-jall, `All āma `Abdall āh Sirājuddīn al-Husaynī radiallāhu `anhu, an extraordinary scholar who dedicated his entire life to the service of Islām.
