Haythami (w40.4) is `Ali ibn Abu Bakr ibn Sulayman, Abu al-Hasan Nur al-Din al-Haythami, born in Cairo in 735/1335. He was a Shafi`i scholar, hadith master (hafiz), and Imam who compiled many hadith collections, among the most famous of which is his ten-volume Majma` al-zawa'id wa manba` al-fawa'id [Compendium of hadiths not mentioned in the six main collections, and wellspring of information], which has become a virtual necessity for modern students of hadith. He is sometimes confused with Ibn Hajar Haytami, whom he is unrelated to. He died in 807/1405 (al-A`lam (y136), 4.266; and Sheikh Shu`ayb Arna'ut).
