Untitled[edit]

I am confused by this--I just read an article (or "stub") here on Ibn Hajar Asqalani, but the discussion page says the article does not exist.

Anyhow in the article itself this line appears:

"as the Mukhtasar of Ibn al-Hajib on usul." and "usul" is a link. I think that the link is an error, as the definition of "usul" to which this links relates to Ottoman music or some such thing. I do not think that that is the right referent for "usul" in this case. (I think it relates to Islamic law, but I may be wrong.) 86.142.235.34 17:33, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

I corrected the line. Thanks for pointing it out. ZaydHammoudeh 18:37, 3 September 2006 (UTC)

Unecessary Digression[edit]

Why is the Fath al-Bari of Ibn Rajb mentioned more extensivley here than ibn Hajr own Fath al-Bari? Sakhawi, a prominant student of ibn Hajr and his biographer, mentions that the naming of Fath al-Bari in spite of the previous usage of this was an oversight, as Ibn Hajr cited Ibn Rajab's work in his own. Ibn Rajab's work seems to have been completed to greater extent than mentioned as there exist remnants of the Book of Clothing in the Thahiriyyah Library in Damasus. As a I do not have my references in front of me at present I write this on the discussion page only.Supertouch (talk) 19:25, 14 May 2009 (UTC)

Hi there,

someone posted some kind of article about this guy at my commons talk page. Maybe you want to use parts of it (it's open content after all). Regards, --Flominator (talk) 16:48, 28 December 2010 (UTC)
