    Mustafa Lutfi el-Manfaluti (1876-1924) was an Egyptian writer and poet who was born in the Upper Egyptian city of Manfalut.He memorized the Quran before the age of twelve. He studied at Al-Azhar University in Cairo. He translated and novelised plays from French, and wrote (and translated) several short stories. His most famous work is a collection of his articles under the title: el-Nazarat (Arabic: النظرات‎).

    One of his most notable traits is that he couldn't read or speak French. He asked some of his friends to translate the play or the book to Arabic, then he rewrote them.

    Some of his books are:

    El-Ibrat (العبرات), Esh-Sha'er (الشاعر), Fi Sabeel at-taj (في سبيل التّاج), El-Fadila (الفضيلة).
