Shams al-Din Muhammad ibn `Abd al-Rahman al-Sakhawi (831AH 1428 - 902AH 1497) was a reputable Egyptian Islamic scholar, a Shafi'i "hafiz," excelling in knowledge of "hadith," "tafsir," literature, and history.

"Al-Sakhawi" refers to the village of Sakha in Egypt, where his relatives belonged. He was born in Cairo and died in Medina. He was an author of numerous books. His proficience in hadith has its influences trace back heavily on his Shaykh Al-Hafiz Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani.
