Abstract

Jalāl al-Dīn al-Suy ṭī, as a religious scholar of the Egyptian Mamluk era, one of the most prominent scholars of the pre-modern Islamic world, is the most prolific author in all of Islamic literature, with both a rich and diverse literary output. After a brief outline of the life, works and historical period in which the late-fifteenth century polymath lived, in the present essay attempts have been made to explore and highlight all the episodes of al-Suy ṭī‘s personal life and the background and context in which he operated that, most likely, influenced him to the point of making him reflect, argue and debate on life after death and, consequently, produce literature focused on eschatological themes, with the specific mention of some of these works.
