Ḍiyāʼ al-Dīn Abu ʻAbdallah Muhammad ibn ʻAbd al-Wahid al-Saʻdi al-Maqdisi al-Hanbali[3] (569–643 AH/1173-1245 AD) was a Hanbali Islamic scholar.


Diya' al-Din was born in Damascus in 1173. His parents had emigrated from Nablus in the crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem shortly before his birth, along with hundreds of other Hanbali inhabitants of the area, in response to perceived threats against their shaykhs from the crusader lord of Nablus, Baldwin of Ibelin.[4] Al-Dhahabi described him as the Sheikh of hadith scholars. He recorded Maqdisi's death in the year 1245 C.E., 643 A.H.[5]


  • The Cited Tales of the Wondrous Doings of the Shaykhs of the Holy Land: a collection of anecdotes about the shaykhs of the Nablus area prior to the mass immigration of Hanbalis to Damascus. Diya al-Din collected the stories from his older relatives who had also lived there.
  • Al-Āhādith al-Jiyād al-Mukhtārah min mā laysa fī Ṣaḥīḥain: a collection of hadith arranged by the name of the Companion narrating each hadith, in alphabetical order. He was unable to complete it. He intended to include only authentic hadith a goal which, to a large extent, he accomplished.[6]
