      Hello there, I was wondering if you have heard of Abdul Samad al-Palimbani, a half-Indonesian scholar who lived in 18th-century Mecca? Is he a somewhat known figure in Middle Eastern scholarship?

      Edit: It appears that he is commonly called "Sayyid 'Abd-al Samad ibn 'Abd-al Rahman al-Jawi" in Arab sources, if that helps.

        I have. I am not too familiar with his views however, why do you ask?

    I study the Fiqh of both past and present and put modern Islamic Fiqh and apply it to history.

    History & Islamic Fiqh. Love the opportunity to discuss history.

    Areas of expertise:
    Islamic Fiqh, primarily Hanbali school
    Saudi Arabian history and politics
    Rashidun to Late Abbasid history
    History of Louisiana

    Other interests outside history:

    Western fashion of the XIX and into modern eras. Suits and dress hats especially are a favorite of mine.

    Environment of various animals. Tigers and African Wild Dogs are some particular favorites of mine.

    Jurisprudence and Law. Outside Islamic fiqh or jurisprudence, I find all types of Law fascinating and enjoy reading court cases and decisions made by judges in the west, east and the Ulema giving their fatawa on specific cases.

    Politically:

    Conservative and traditionalist. Favors small government, tradition and less state regulation. Not extremely politically inclined though.
