“Our Shaikh al-Ḥāfiẓ Burhānudīn al-Ḥalabī ash-Shāfiʿī said, ‘The scholars of ḥadīth who had thousands of Shaikhs …:

Aṭ-Ṭabarānī: more than 1000 Shaikhs.
Abul-Fityān: 3700.
Abul-Qāsim ibn ʿAsākir: 1380.
Abū Saʿīd ibn as-Samʿānī: 7000 Shaikhs, and this is something no one accomplished apart from him.
Ad-Dimyātī: 1300 …’”

An-Nukat al-Wafiyyah bi mā fī Sharhil-Alfiyyah of al-Buqāʿī, p. 636.
