This lecture will discuss and comment on the notable manuscript titled Risala Fi Tabaqat Al-Mujtahideen [Treatise on the Classes of Pioneering Islamic Jurists and Scholars], by leading Ottoman scholar Ahmed Şemseddin Kemalpaşazade, known in the Arabic world as Ahmad ibn Souleiman Ibn Kamal Pacha (died 940 AH/1534 CE).
The lecture will be delivered by our guest lecturer, Mohammed Yaser Shahin, Researcher at the Center of Islamic Research in Turkey. Mahmoud Zaki, the Library’s Manuscript Librarian, will moderate the session.
