Abd al-Rahim ibn al-Husain al-'Iraqi

'Abdulrahim bin al-Husain bin 'Abdulrahman al-'Iraqi al-Misri (Arabic: عبد الريحم بن حسين بن عبد الرحمن العراقي المصري‎) (1325–1403), popularly known as al-Hafith al-Iraqi, was a well-known Shafi'i scholar of hadith.


From his works is the book entitled Al-Mughnee 'an-hamlil-Asfar fil-Asfar fee takhrej maa fil-lhyaa minal-Akhbar, in which he referenced and graded the hadith cited in Ihyaa 'Uloom al-Deen by Abu Haamid Al-Ghazali. It was completed over the course of 13 years. The original, larger book was completed in 1350 which he later abridged in 1359, also following up on some hadith he sought throughout those nine years. This smaller work is printed in the margin of several editions of Ihyaa 'Uloom al-Deen. He has also turned the Muqaddimah Ibn Silah into 1000 lines of poetry commonly known as Alfiyatu Iraaqee. This is perhaps his most famous piece of work.


Al-Iraqi died in 1403 at the age of 78.
