A SCHOLARLY FAMILY IN THE MAMLUK PERIOD: EXAMPLE OF IHNAI

Abstract

Author(s): M. Fatih YALÇIN

The Mamluks ruled Egypt and Syria for some two and a half centuries and host numerous ulama families. Many of these families assumed important tasks for many years. One of them, the Ihnai was an eminent family and five of whose members appointed chief judges in the Mamluk period. It is not possible to learn about family before the establishment of the Mamluk state. The Ihnai were consistent adherents of the Shafi‘i school, the dominant school in the Mamluk period. But some of them changed their school and became Maliki. Members of the family first appear in Islamic history as scholars in the later half of the thirteenth century. This article traces the varying fortunes of one notable family, the Ihnai, who provided chief judges in the Mamluk period.
