The scholar ibn hajar al-Asqalaani, the author of the great commentary on Bukhari wrote that, He was inseparable from Jihad in the front line of Demyat, and this is a perfect and excellent quality.

Al-sakhawi writes, He strove in doing good, and preferred obscurity, he did not become proud because of his knowledge, on the contrary maybe those who did not know him would think him to be a commoner, with his pleasant appearance, beautiful beard, stocky and even body, he participated much in Ribat and Jihad until he was martyred.[1]

He was a scholar and mujahid from the past and was mentioned by the Hafidh Ibn Hajar al-Asqalaani by the following words, “He was inseparable from jihaad in the front line of Dumyat, and this is a perfect and excellent quality”.

As-Sakhaawy states: “He strove in doing good, and preferred obscurity, he did not become proud because of his knowledge, on the contrary maybe those who did not know him would think him to be a commoner, with his pleasant appearance, beautiful beard, stocky and even body, he participated much in ribaat and jihaad until he was martyred”

Abu Imaad States: “The sheikh, the Imam, the scholar and the example.”

During the year of 814 hijri, the Roman army attacked the people of At-Teenah, a village in Egypt, and the people of Dumyat marched to their help, the most notable of them being Ibn-Nuhaas. There then flared an immense battle between the two sides and Ibn-Nuhaas was killed whilst attacking the enemy.

Abdullah Yusuf Azzam who is commonly noted as being responsible for the revival of jihad in the twentieth century, referred to ibn Nuhaases most famous piece of work as the best books he has read.[2]
