This book establishes itself as an important documentation of the history of scholarship in Makkah. It comprehensively lists the details of scholars who were present in Makkah during the fourteenth Hijrī century and presents biographies of several of them. These include citizens, visitors, those living nearby and those visiting for the Ḥajj as well as students. The author also included the biographies of a number of notables whom he did not meet but who left a lasting legacy.
The study is truly comprehensive in its descriptive nature of the academic level and production of scholarly works, and is written by a scholar and lifelong dweller of the city itself.
The book can be considered a reference for those researching the history of Makkah, in its cultural, academic and jurisprudential fields.
