Allamah (Arabic: عَلَّامة, Urdu and Persian: علامه), also spelled Allāma, and Allama, is an honorary title, means a profound scholar, a polymath, a man of vast reading and erudition, a great learned one.
The title is carried by scholars of Islamic fiqh (jurisprudence) and philosophy.
It is used as an honorific in Sunni Islam as well as in Shia Islam, mostly in South Asia, Middle East and Iran. Sunnis and Shias who have achieved the rank of a scholarship in several disciplines are often referred to by the title. Also used for philosophers, such as Allama Iqbal.
