Muhammad bn Arafah Ad-Dasuki rahimahullah was a Sage and a Polymath who excelled and was prominent for his deep rootedness in Fiqh, Aqidah, Usul, Tawqit and Hisaab. He was born in the City of Dasuq and studied from its body of Scholars. Later, he moved to Qaahirah where he studied in the Azhar University the bastion of Ulamaa and Learned Ones.
