This chapter looks at the Hanbali-Wahhabism in the nineteenth century. It shows that Hanbali-Wahhabi ulama succeeded in extending the tradition's domination over almost all of Central Arabia after a number of attempts to eliminate the Sufi-inflected current of Hanbalism by enforcing the tradition on most of the region's sedentary population. The Hanbali-Wahhabi religious establishment rejected the House of Muhammad Rashid Rida's pretensions to legitimate domination.

Keywords:   Hanbali-Wahhabism, Hanbali-Wahhabi ulama, Central Arabia, Sufi, Hanbalism, House of Muhammad Rashid Rida, messianism
