Ibn Hisham al-Ansari (1309-1360), was a leading Egyptian grammarian. Imam Ibn Hajar al-Asqalani mentioned in his book al-Durar al-Kamina that al-Ansari learned from all the great scholars of his time such as Taj al-Tabrizi, Taj al-Fakhani, Shuhab ibn Marhal and Ibn Jama’ah. He quickly became famous for his work in the science of Arabic grammar and wrote 28 titles or works about Nahw, Sarf and Lugha:
– Mughni al-Labib ‘an Kutub al-’A’arib. (Thiswork).
– Awdah al-Masalik ila Alfiyyat ibnMalik.
– Sharh al-Burda.
– Qatr al Nada wa-ball al-Sada and Sharh Chuzur al-Zahab.
Imam Ibn Hajar al-’Asqalani quotes ibn Khaldun saying: “Everywhere we went in Morocco we would hear that there has come from Egypt an unparalleled scholar in the science of Arabic Grammar, not even matched by Sibawayh”.
