It was a privilege to conduct lectures in Nizamiyya Madrasas, especially the one in Baghdad, which previously had a prominent place in the history of Islamic education. Numerous scholars and jurists altered their first sects, converting into Shafiism so as to be able to give lectures in Nizamiyya Madrasas. Evidently, scholars and jurists have been in competition amongst themselves, such as Abu Nasr Ibn al-Sabbagh, Abu Ishaq al-Shirazi, and Abu Sa'd al-Mutawalli. Furthermore, they sought mediation of the caliphs, sultans, and viziers. This stems from the reputation and privileged position of Baghdad Nizamiyya Madrasa throughout the world.
