Ibn Jamaah, Badr al-Din Abu Abd Allah Muhammad

(d. 1333 )

A distinguished Shafii jurist of Mamluk Egypt and member of the prominent Banu Jamaah clan. Served as chief justice under the Mamluks of Cairo and twice in Damascus, during a period when Shafii jurisprudence was favored by the state. Of his many works, the best-known is Expounding the Rules Governing the (Political) Organization of the Muslim People. His work is an important specimen of the highly developed genre of writings by premodern Muslim jurists who combined the fields of law and political theory.
