The Ulama, Clerics of Islam
This chapter presents an introduction of the ulama. The ulama maximizes the possibilities for salvation. This book explores the corporation of the ulama. The ulama is believed to symbolize the temporal and spiritual heritage of Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab (d. 1792), who is a product of the Hanbali juridico-theological school. The book also addresses the role played by the Hanbali-Wahhabi ulama in several phases of the history of the Saudi political entity. Some interpretive hypotheses of the Saudi ulama are then presented.
