This chapter discusses the life and reform work of Islamic scholar Maḥmūd Shaltūt. He was born on April 23, 1893 in a farming village of Lower Egypt called Minyat Bani Mansur in the province of Buhayra. Shaltūt enrolled at the new Religious Institute of Alexandria in 1910 and graduated in 1918 from the Ashar University with the highest honours. After graduation and his appointment in various teaching positions, Shaltūt supported different reform movements and policies. These include the independence movement started by Sa'd Zaghul in 1919 and Muhammad Mustafa al-Maraghi's reform plans as Shaykh al-Azhar in 1928.
