b. mūsā b. s̲h̲uʿayb , abu ’l-mawadda ḍiyāʾ al-dīn , ibn al-d̲j̲undi , Mālikī faḳīh of Egypt, born in Cairo 13 Rabīʿ I 776/22 August 1374 (but other dates, in particular 767 and 769 are also given). His father was a Ḥanafī, and it was through the influence of his teacher ʿAbd Allāh al-Manūfī (d. 749/1348) that he adopted the Mālikī law school. He performed the Pilgrimage, and then remained some time in Medina, studying and teaching at the madrasa S̲h̲ayk̲h̲ūniyya . Although generally leading a fairly retiring life, he nevertheless took up arms in the defence forces, and thus took part in the recovery of Alexandria from the Christians in 767/1365-6.
