When making a list of the most influential scholars of Islam, the ever-present difficulty is who to leave out? Over the fourteen centuries of its existence, Islamic scholarship has produced numerous individuals who have distinguished themselves by acquiring broad knowledge and deep insight. However, true distinction is only achieved through a lasting influence, particularly when the area of scholarship is a religion that presents it as being suited to all communities at all times. Therefore the selection has to start with the founders of eight schools of jurisprudence who have had a continuous following over the centuries up to the present day.

This book introduces nine scholars from these schools and adds two more from a much later era that influence extended far beyond the area of pure scholarship.
