Research Title

The Legacy of ʿAbdullāh Al-Hararī in the Scope of Islamic-Lebanese Sectarianism; with Special Reference to The Sunnī-Wahhābi Conflict

Research Summary

My doctorate research project, at its core, sheds light on the legacy of the modern-day Muslims reformist ʿAbdullāh b. Mohammad al-Hararī, who is commonly recognised as an influential Shāfiʿī-Ashʿarī Islamic scholar. It investigates into al-Hararī’s life and his contribution to Islamic Studies, in addition to highlighting other aspects of his legacy, along with exploring ideological approaches to countering extremist thought.
