Al-Shawkānī (d. 1250) said,
“Al-Suyūṭī was a major imām, and a prolific author. He was given authorisation (ijāzah) by the major scholars of his time from different countries and towns. He excelled in the various sciences and surpassed his peers; he gained distinction and his acclaim spread far and wide. From his beneficial works are his two Jāmiʿ collections of ḥadīth, al-Durr al-Manthūr and al-Itqān fī ʿUlūm al-Qurʾān.”
