Dear All,

I regret to inform you that Egyptian professor Muhammad Muhammad Amin passed away on Monday, April 13, at his home in Cairo. Professor Amin is famous for his great contribution to the field of Mamluk studies, through his scholarly works and edited Mamluk sources. During his last years he was working on “Iqd al-juman," which remains unfinished.
