Abu'l-Mawahib al-Shinnawi or Abu'l-Mawahib Ahmad ibn Ali ibn Abd al-Quddus al-Shinnawi (Arabic: أحمد بن علي بن احمد بن عبد القدوس ابن محمد الشناوي أبو المواهب ) also known as "al-Khami" or al-Hanna'i (Arabic: الحنائي ) is a master of Shattariyya Sufi order.

His life[edit]

He was born in a well-known Sufi family al-Shinnawi in 975 H.E./1568 A.D. in Mahallat Ruh, west of Cairo. His father Ali ibn Abd al-Quddus al-Shinnawi was a popular leader and Ahmadi shaykh (after Ahmad al-Badawi (d. 675 H.E./1276 A.D.)). He moved to Medina and settled there for religious studies. Later he became a prominent Sufi and the leading shaykh for Naqshabandiyya in Medina in his time. The order was ordered to Medina with Shattariyya by the Indian shaykh Sibghatallah ibn Ruhallah al-Sindi al-Barwaji.

He died in 1028 H.E/1619 A.D. His many students included Safi al-Din al-Qushashi who venerated his teacher as the saintly "Seal of the Time".
