`Abd al-Ra'uf Munawi (p75.0) is Muhammad `Abd al-Ra'uf ibn Taj al-`Arifin ibn `Ali ibn Zayn al-`Abidin al-Munawi, born in 952/1545. A major Shafi`i scholar in the religious and traditional sciences, he lived in Cairo, where he devoted himself to research and writing, producing nearly eighty works, of which perhaps the most signal contribution is his six-volume Fayd al-Qadir sharh al-Jami` al-saghir [The outpouring of the Omnipotent: an exegesis of "The minor compendium"], a commentary on a famous hadith collection by Suyuti. Towards the end of his life, he weakened himself through lack of food and sleep, became ill, and finally had to dictate his works to his son. He died in 1031/1622 (al-A`lam (y136), 6.204; and n).
