Contemporary students of knowledge and scholars

Below you will find the names of some well known contemporary (Sunni) students of knowledge and scholars. Some of them have already passed away, may Allah have mercy on them all. Contemporary according to my perception means from this and the last century. I have divided them between the young, upcoming, and old generation.  This list is by no means final and it might contain mistakes as to the divide in young and old. Please feel free to add and correct me if wrong. These were the names I came up with after giving it some thought.
