- may Allah be pleased with him
From Al-Dhahabi’s ‘Siyar A’lam an-Nubala” ... an-nubala/

Ibrahim bin Buranah said: “ash-Shafi’i was serious, tall, and noble.”


az-Za’farani said: “ash-Shafi’i visited us in Baghdad in the year 95. He stayed with us for a few months, then left. He would dye his hair with henna, and he had thin cheeks.”

Ahmad bin Sinan said: “I saw him with a red beard and hair – i.e. he used to dye them.”


Return to Imam al-Shafi´i d. 204 H.
