In the year 1084/1674 he issued a certificate of transmission for a work of his father in the ms Leipzig Vollers 253.
All cited and identically worded notes give no more than the bare name Sharaf al-Dīn Ibn shaykh al-islām. Only Leipzig Vollers 283 identifies the shaykh al-islām by name as Zakariyā'. Accordingly, this man should most probably have been Sharaf al-Dīn b. Zayn al-ʽĀbidīn b. Muḥyī al-Dīn Ibn Zakariyā' al-Anṣārī, who would have referred only to his most famous forefather, namely the chief judge of Egypt Zakariyā' al-Anṣārī (d. 926/1520), commonly known as shaykh al-islām (cf. GAL I p. 432, II pp. 99-100, S I p. 771, S II pp. 117-118; Ziriklī: Aʽlām III, p. 46).
The dating of ms Leipzig Vollers 283 in the year 1057/1647 gives a terminus post quem for our Šaraf ad-Dīn Ibn Zakariyā''s life, while the inclusion of the Istanbul mss (including the one microfilm referred to as Cairene) into the endowment, achieved in 1113, of the Mufti of Istanbul, Faiḍ Allāh (d. 1115), sets a terminus ante quem. Taken together, these dates make the proposed identification highly probable. Furthermore, the six mss preserved today in Gotha, all bought by Seetzen in the year 1809 in Cairo, show a geographical focus on Egypt befitting the biography of this man.
