Information

Taissir Tamimi (20th century Hebron - ) was a Palestinian judge and politician, who was a judge in Palestine and the head of the Supreme Council of the Shari'a Judiciary.

On October 21, 1952, Tayseer Rajab Hamid Bayoudh al-Tamimi was born near the Ibrahimi Mosque in the old town of Hebron in the southern West Bank, to a family attributed to the great companion Tamim bin Aws al-Dari. He received his school education between the cities of Jerusalem, Jericho, Irbid and Bethlehem, where his father worked as a Sharia judge. In 1975, he obtained his undergraduate degree from Al-Azhar University in Sharia and Law. Then, in 1996, he obtained a master's degree in jurisprudence and legislation from An-Najah National University in Nablus. Later in 2006, he obtained a PhD in Jurisprudence and its Fundamentals from the University Institute of Dawah for Postgraduate Studies in Beirut.

Taysir Al-Tamimi worked as a Sharia judge in Bethlehem and then Hebron in 1986. In 1994, Yasser Arafat appointed him as an inspector of the Sharia courts. Later, from 1997 to 1999, he worked as an Acting Judge.

In April 1998, Al-Tamimi was tasked with forming a committee to work on a personal status law that would be effective in the Palestinian territories "as an essential step in establishing the [Palestinian] state". In March 2000, Arafat officially appointed him as Deputy Chief Justice.

In 2002, he was appointed as a judge in Palestine and as head of the Supreme Shari'a Court. In 2003, he was appointed head of the Supreme Council of Sharia Judiciary. Later in 2010, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas referred him to early retirement.

In December 2012, Tamimi founded the Freedom and Independence Party (Hares); To defend the sanctities and constants, the Palestinian security services foiled the launch ceremony on December 12, 2012. According to Ma'an News Agency, the new party was linked to funding from the Modern Egypt Party.

During a seminar in November 2001, Al-Tamimi entered into a heated discussion with the Mufti of Jerusalem and the Palestinian Territory, Sheikh Ikrima Sabri, about reforms in the legal system, in particular their positions regarding the age of marriage. Al-Tamimi called for raising the legal marriage age to 18, while Sabri preferred the position of traditional Islamic law that a minor can marry at puberty.
On December 21, 2012, Tayseer Al-Tamimi's car was set on fire next to his house, in Jabal Abu Rumman, Hebron city.
