La vida de Šihāb al-Dīn al-Suhrawardī es oscura. Datos aislados referentes a sus estudios, viajes y contactos se encuentran en breves noticias de los diccionarios biográficos de los siglos XII y XIII. Estas noticias permiten esbozar una biografía de al- Suhrawardī desde sus comienzos hasta la oposición de que fue objeto por parte de los ulemas de Alepo y su trágica muerte, interpretada en el marco y el contexto de la ciudad. Todo este material de los diccionarios biográficos es sólo relativamente fidedigno e incluso los textos contemporáneos incluyen datos erróneos.

Shihàb al-Dîn al-Suhrawardf's life is obscure. Some clues regarding his studies, travels and encounters are found in short biographical notices of the 12th and 13th centuries. These notices can provide the means to sketch al-Suhrawardfs biography: his early life, his coming to Aleppo, the mounting opposition of the ulemas of Aleppo, and the final moments that led to his tragic death. The ociopolitical context of Aleppo provides a good framework for the interpretation of the data provided by the biographers. All these biographical works are, however, of relative reliability. Even the most contemporary texts are in fact not devoid of erroneous elements.
