Syrian?[edit]

User:Striver asked me to look at this page. I do not understand in what sense he was Syrian. That he was born in Damascus in 673, and Damascus is now the capital of Syria? [1] Might it not be more accurate to say he was an Umayyad scholar? Tom Harrison Talk 13:54, 23 September 2006 (UTC)

Discussion of an edit[edit]

I removed this line from the last of Dhahabi's teachers: "He said in his last illness while he was in Mecca: "I will die in this illness because the Prophet -- Allah bless and greet him -- promised me that I would die in Mecca."[1]" as it is apparently referring to Dhahabi's teacher and not himself. I say this based upon two points. The first is that Dhahabi died in Damascus as seems apparent in Ibn Hajr's description of his death in al-Durar al-Kaaminah 3/338 where he says that Dhahabi died after returning Egypt. Secondly, Ibn Hajr relates the statement refering to dying in Mecca as originating from Al-Abraquhi, also in al-Durar 1/102-3.Supertouch (talk) 20:54, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

Possible vandalism[edit]

I undid three senseless edits by user: 122.166.97.247. Some of this user's edits were blanking and others simply nonsensical. Supertouch (talk) 08:43, 17 September 2009 (UTC)

References[edit]

His name is wrongly pronounced.[edit]

For people who don't realize this, you don't pronounce the L in Al-Dhahabi, it is written as Al-Dhahabi in Arabic, but it is pronounced Ad-Dhahabi. RussianDewey (talk) 23:59, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
