Shaykh ′Abd al-Ghani ibn Isma′il al-Nablusi (an-Nabalusi) (19 March, 1641 – 5 March, 1731), an eminent Muslim scholar and Sufi, was born in Damascus in 1641 into a family of Islamic scholarship. His father, Isma'il Abd al-Ghani, was a jurist in the Hanafi school of Sunni Islam and a contributor to Arabic literature. He was orphaned at an early age. Abd al-Ghani did not trace his descent to the city of Nablus as some laymen think, hence his surname Nabulsi has nothing to deal with the city of (Nablus). He died and was buried in Damascus in 1731 at 90 years of age.

  • Abd al-Ghani an-Nabulusi (arabisch عبد الغني النابلسي, DMG ʿAbd al-Ġanī an-Nābulusī; * 1641; † 1731) war ein arabischer Sufi und Literat aus Damaskus. Er gilt als eine Schlüsselfigur der islamischen Aufklärung. Als Zeitgenosse vieler großer Denker, Wissenschaftler, Dichter und Philosophen der europäischen Aufklärung steht sein Leben und Werk an den Wurzeln der Moderne in der arabischen Welt. Seine Reisewerke dienen als wichtige Quellen für die Kenntnis der arabischen Länder der Zeit, darunter seine Reise zu den heiligen Städten Mekka und Medina und die Reise durch den Libanon. Orientalisten wie Alfred von Kremer und Johannes Gildemeister (1908) hatten mit ihrer Auswertung begonnen. Muhammad Kamal al-Din al-Ghazzi (1760–1799), der oberste schafi’itische Rechtsgelehrte und Urenkel von al-Nabulusi schrieb seine Biographie. In neuerer Zeit hat sich insbesondere Samer Akkach (University of Adelaide) um die Erforschung von Leben und Werk Nabulusis verdient gemacht. (de)

Abd al-Ghani did not trace his descent to the city of Nablus as some laymen think, hence his surname Nabulsi has nothing to deal with the city of (Nablus). Before the age of 20 he was teaching and giving formal legal opinions (fatwa). He joined both the mystical orders Qadiriyya and Naqshbandi. He then studies in isolation in his house for 7 years studying divine experiences. He taught in the Umawi Mosque in Damascus and the Salihiyya Madrasa, becoming renowned throughout the region as an accomplished Islamic scholar. He travelled extensively, seeing Istanbul (1664), Lebanon (1688), Jerusalem (1689), Palestine (1689), Egypt (1693), Arabia (1693), and Tripoli (1700). He died and was buried in Damascus in 1731 at 90 years of age. (en)
