Al-Jami'a al-Islamiyya was a daily political and cultural newspaper, with an Islamic orientation. The first issue was published in Jerusalem on July 16, 1932. It was founded by Suleiman al-Taji al-Faruqi, a blind sheikh and lawyer who studied at Al-Azhar under the auspices of the thinker Muhammad 'Abduh, where he was called “Ma'ari of Palestine” (after the famous blind Arab philosopher) and then studied law in Istanbul and mastered several languages, including Turkish, French and English. Al-Faruq was known for his defense of the Palestinians before the British courts, in addition to his nationalist-Islamic orientation. The newspaper was concerned with political and social issues, but at the same time it devoted space to stories of Islamic heritage and historical articles that tried to build awareness of the Arab-Islamic civilization.
