About the Imam Yusuf Al-Nabhani
Imam Yusuf al-Nabahani was born in approximately 1849 CE and hailed from a righteous family in Palestine. He first memorized the Qur'an and learnt its sciences along with Ahadith literature at the hands of his father. He then furthered his studies at al-Azhar University with the foremost teachers of his time. His knowledge, love and defence of the Prophet (peace be upon him) knew no bounds. The many books he authored are a testimony to this. Later on in life he taught and presided as a judge in Beirut for many years.
After Qadi Yusuf al-Nabahani retired from his post, he devoted his time to writing and worshipping. He travelled to al-Madinah al-Munawwarah and lived in the noble city for a period. Then he returned to Beirut, Lebanon where he passed on to the mercy of Allah at the beginning of Ramadhan 1932 CE.
