This chapter reveals three broad categories of ulama, namely the self-made men, the children of midlevel religious personnel, and the heirs of the houses of ulama. It also shows the Al al-Shaykh as the levites of Hanbali-Wahhabism. The behavior of the members of the Committee of Grand Ulama adapted the logic of the Saudi politico-religious space. In agreement with the three O's, the Hanbali-Wahhabi ulama managed the official market for salvational goods and supported the political authorities.

Keywords:   Hanbali-Wahhabi ulama, Hanbali-Wahhabism, Al al-Shaykh
