As Salamu alaikum Sheikh,
Who were the more prominent students of Imam ibn Hajar and Imam al-Ramli? Throughout the Hawashi, it seems that a lot of the authors were students of Imam al-Ramli.
Are there any instances where Imam al-Ramli makes mention of Ibn Hajar or Khatib al-Shirbini?
Insha Allah, I would like to find the larger editions of al-Hawashi al-Madaniyyah, do you know what the names of the various editions are ? Some just mention Sughra, Wusta, and Kubra.

Wa `alaykum salam wa rahmatuLlah
Ibn Hajar’s students include
- his son-in-law, Muhammad ibn `Abd al-`Aziz al-Zamzami, from Makkah
- Muhammad ibn Abi Bakr al-Ashkhar, from Yemen
- Sayyid `Umar ibn `Abd al-Rahim al-Basri, from Makkah
- Zayn al-Din al-Malibari, from India
Ramli’s students include
- Nur al-Din al-Zayyadi, author of a hashiyah on Fath al-Wahhab
- Burhan al-Din al-Halabi, author of a hashiyah on both Fath al-Wahhab and Sharh al-Mahalli
- Shihab al-Din al-Qalyubi, author of the hashiyah on Sharh al-Mahalli
- Shihab al-Din al-Khafaji
- `Abd al-Qadir al-Tabari
- Abd al-Ra’ud al-Munawi
Most of the authors of the hawashi were Egyptians and students of Ramli.
It was the habit of authors not to mention their contemporaries by name when making reference to them in their writings. There are several instances which could be construed as references by the authors of Mughni, Tuhfah, and Nihayah to one another; but it may be equally true (if not in fact more probable) that the reference is not to the author of the other commentary, but to that particular author’s source. Ramli, for example might not be referring to Ibn Hajar when he makes reference to some unnamed contemporary, but rather to Ibn Hajar’s source Ibn `Abd al-Haqq al-Sunbati.
Kurdi’s larger hashiyah is called al-Mawahib al-Madaniyyah. See it at http://makhtota.ksu.edu.sa/makhtota/991/4 .
The hashiyah wusta is the one published. Its title is al-Hawashi al-Madaniyyah.
The sughra is called al-Maslak al-`Adl. I gave you a link to it before.
