AbstractMuhammed bin Tumart is a well-known muslim scholar. He is one of a few reformers in the Islamic world in medieval. He kept on studying the various lorauehes of Islamic jurisprudence and for the sake of his study, he traveled from his country Morroco to the East spending several years. He met in this journey a number of prominent muslim scholars from whom he received his education. When he come back to his country, Tumart revolted against the moral deterioration experienced in Morroco at that time, banned wine trafficking and obscene singing. He fought as well against the tyranny and wide spread ignorance, encouraging the study of religious sciences especially Jurisprudence. After all these painstaking efforts, Tumart managed to realize his aim. His followers however, managed, after his death , to establish the state of Al-Muwahidin - the monotheists - whose name is derived from al-Tawhid – Monotheism – which Ibn Tumart instilled in his followers and urged them to adhere to.
