Chronological list/Timeline of Muslim scholars

IT IS THANKS TO ALL OF THESE SCHOLARS, BY THE WILL OF ALLAH, THAT THIS NOBLE RELIGION OF ISLAM HAS BEEN PROTECTED UNTIL OUR TIMES. HERE ARE THEIR DATES OF DEATH:

The date indicated after the name of the scholar is usually the date of death (except for a few of them where it says “was alive in” as this is the information we could gather).When two dates are mentioned, then the first date is the birth date.
