his biography

Hussein bin Salim bin Salama bin Salman al-Dajani was born in 1788 AD / 1202 AH in Jaffa in the Ramle district of the Sanjak of Gaza from the Ottoman vilayet of Damascus and grew up there. Al-Dajali belongs to the Dajani family, relative to Beit Dajan in Nablus, and they are an Alawite family. Salim and his father were men of knowledge, Shafi'i doctrine and mystics. He was moving between Jaffa and Beit Dajan, where his son Hussein was born. He has also fathered five sons and a daughter.

Hussain Al-Dajani grew up with his father and studied the first lessons under his hands, so he read grammar and morphology and several books of literary arts on him. He received most of the books circulating on Shafi’i jurisprudence until it emerged. The curriculum included the study of the Qur’an, hadith, the Prophet’s biography, language sciences, jurisprudence and literary arts. Then at the age of twenty-five (1812 AD), he went to Egypt, studied at Al-Azhar and stayed there for about nine years. He found the upper class of senior sheikhs, including Al-Fadali, Hassan Al-Quwasni, Sheikh Al-Bakhti, Sheikh Muhammad Al-Abidi, Hassan Al-Attar, Muhammad Al-Damanhouri and others. Sheikh Abdullah Al-Sharqawi realized and attended some of the lessons of Ali Ahmed Al-Tahtawi, the Hanafi Sheikh, and he also attended Sheikh Ibrahim Al-Bagouri. Husayn al-Dajani was a Shafi'i like his father, and he was acquainted with the Hanafi jurisprudence at Al-Azhar and the transformation of his school of jurisprudence.

As a young boy, he became interested in the Sufi orders due to his upbringing under the care of his father, who was a scholar, jurist, mystic, and connoisseur of Bedouin Ahmadiyyatism, as he took it from Salih al-'Alari al-Majzoub. As for the Rifai method, it is narrated from Sheikh Hassan al-Ghazali al-Rifai.

Then he returned to Jaffa in 1235 AH / 1812 AD, at the age of thirty-three, and he settled on reading and teaching. He soon became the Mufti in the year 1236 AH / 1820 AD. His death continued, and he began a new phase of his life, during which he was busy with his work, teaching, writing and public work, becoming a science in his country and one of its aspects. Jaffa and its area in general had been subjected to the destruction of its mosques and sights due to the events that had befallen it, so he was busy rebuilding or restoring what was destroyed. And he spent on that what he used to get and by striving from the people of good deeds.

He resolved to go on Hajj, so he called his own to accompany him and asked his brother Hassan to travel with him. He was also accompanied by his cousin Abu Rabah, who is a Sufi, and after he performed the obligatory prayer, he died in Mecca in the Eyalet of Abyssinia on Sunday 21 Dhu al-Hijjah 1270/1 August 1858 and was buried in Mualla next to the tomb of Sheikh Abd al-Rahman al-Kuzbari.

It was mentioned in Al-Babtain’s Dictionary of him, “His poetry is rhymed, mostly in praise of the Prophet and in judgment and begging.
