Childhood and Learning[edit]

Imbaba Zawiyah (Cairo)

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 aged 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 at Cairo, and has an open access library for which Shaykh Salah ud-Din al-Tijani 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 1st Muharram 1400

Over the years, he became a master of Sunni jurisprudence in the Maliki, Hanafi, Shafi'i and Hanbali Madhabs as well as mastering the legal opinions of the defunct Madhab, 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.
