HISTORY

Hussein bin Ali, Sharif of Mecca
Hussein bin Ali, Sharif of Mecca
(1853-1931), the founder of the modern dynasty.

The Hashemites
The Hashemites
claim to trace their ancestry from Hashim ibn \'Abd Manaf (died c. 497 AD), the great-grandfather of the Islamic prophet Muhammad
Muhammad
, although the definition today mainly refers to the descendants of Muhammad's daughter Fatimah . The early history of the Hashemites saw them in a continuous struggle against the Umayyads for control over who would be the caliph or successor to Muhammad. The Umayyads were of the same tribe as the Hashemites, but a different clan. After the overthrow of the Umayyads, the Abbasids would present themselves as representatives of the Hashemites, as they claimed descent from Abbas ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib , an uncle of Muhammad. Muhammad's father had died before he was born, and his mother died while he was a child, so Muhammad
Muhammad
was raised by his uncle Abu Talib ibn ‘Abd al-Muttalib , chief of the Hashemites.

From the 10th century onwards, the sharif (religious leader) of Mecca and its Emir was, by traditional agreement, a Hashemite. Before World War I, Hussein bin Ali
Ali
of the Hashemite Dhawu-'Awn clan ruled the Hejaz on behalf of the Ottoman sultan. For some time it had been the practice of the Sublime Porte to appoint the Emir of Mecca
Mecca
from among a select group of candidates. In 1908, Hussein bin Ali
Ali
was appointed to the Emirate of Mecca

. He found himself increasingly at odds with the Young Turks
