Muhammad Metwally El Shaarawy was born on April 15, 1911 AD in the village of Daqadous, Mit Ghamr Center, Dakahlia Governorate, Egypt. He memorized the Holy Qur’an at the age of eleven. In 1922, he joined the Zagazig Primary Azhari Institute, and showed brilliance from a young age in memorizing poetry and the aphorisms of saying and ruling. , and head of the Association of Writers in Zagazig, and he was with him at that time Dr. Mohamed Abdel Moneim Khafagy, the poet Taher Abu Fasha, Professor Khaled Mohamed Khaled, Dr. Ahmed Heikal and Dr. Hassan Gad, and they were showing him what they wrote. It was a turning point in the life of Sheikh Al-Shaarawy, when his father wanted to join him in Al-Azhar Al-Sharif in Cairo, and Sheikh Al-Shaarawi would like to stay with his brothers to cultivate the land, but the insistence of the father pushed him to take him to Cairo, pay the expenses and prepare the place for housing. All he had to do was stipulate that his father buy him quantities of books on heritage, language, sciences of the Qur’an, interpretations and books of the Noble Prophetic hadith, as a kind of impotence until his father is satisfied with his return to the village. But his father was wise to this trick, and bought him everything he asked for, saying to him: I know, my son, that all these books are not prescribed for you, but I preferred to buy them to provide you with them so that you can draw from knowledge. This is what Sheikh Al-Shaarawy said in his meeting with journalist Tariq Habib. Al-Shaarawy joined the Faculty of Arabic in 1937 AD, and was preoccupied with the national movement and the Al-Azhar movement. The movement to resist the English occupiers in 1919 AD broke out from Al-Azhar Al-Sharif, and from Al-Azhar, publications that express the discontent of the Egyptians against the British occupiers came out. The Zagazig Institute was not far from the Al-Azhar Citadel in Cairo, so he and his colleagues went to the squares and corridors of Al-Azhar, and delivered speeches, which exposed him to arrest more than once.
