Other Scholars commentary on Ibn Nuhaas

  • As-Sakhaawy states: “He strove in doing good, and preferred obscurity,he did not become proud because of his knowledge, on the contrary maybe those who did not know him would think him to be a commoner, with hispleasant appearance, beautiful beard, stocky and even body, he participated much in ribaat and jihad until he was martyred”[2]
  • Abu Imaad States: “The sheikh, the Imam, the scholar and the example” During the year of 814 AH (1411 CE) the enemy attacked the people of At-Teenah, a village in Egypt, and the people of Dumyat marched to their help, the most notable of them being Ibn-Nuhaas. There then flared an immense battle between the two sides and Ibn-Nuhaas was killed whilst attacking the enemy not fleeing.
