Abu Imran al-Fasi
|Abu Imran al-Fasi
ابو عمران الفاسي
He is regarded a saint by later Sufi mystics. He played an important role in the history of the Almoravid dynasty. It was his teaching in Qayrawan (Tunisia) that first stirred the Sanhaja. He wrote a commentary on the Mudawana of Sahnun. Sidi Kadi Abul Fadl Iyyad (d. 544/1129), author of the Kitab Shifa bitarif huquq al-Mustapha (The Antidote in knowing the rights of the Chosen Prophet), hagiographied Abu Imran al-Fasi in his Tadrib a-Madarik (Exercising Perception), an encyclopaedia of Maliki scholars.
