Abstract
Muslim scholars of the Malay world have played an important role in spreading Islamic
teachings to the people of this region. Their efforts were carried out through various mediums, be it verbal
presentations or in the form of writing. The glory of Malay scholarship and field of knowledge reached its zenith
when many local scholars obtained their education at Masjidil Haram, Mecca in the 18th century. Among
them was Syeikh Ahmad Khatib Sambas (1802 M-1872 M), a scholar from the Malay Archipelago who was
renowned for his expansive knowledge on Islam. This study will discuss the biography of Syeikh Ahmad Khatib
Sambas (1802 M-1872 M) and analyse the contents of his writings, specifically "The Fatwa of Syeikh Ahmad
Khatib Sambas On Friday Prayers". To reach this objective, this study's methodology will apply the qualitative
method, encompassing document analysis and interviews to obtain research findings. The research findings of
this study show that Syeikh Ahmad Khatib Sambas (1802 M-1872 M) grew up in and was surrounded by an
environment steeped in knowledge, which made him become one of the Archipelago's most revered scholars.
His works related to Friday prayers have highly benefited the field of knowledge, particularly pertaining to the
issue of the size of congregations, which had caused a polemic among scholars. His fatwa regarding the problem
is still relevant today, as the issue continues to arise. Therefore, his views on issues related to Friday prayers
have provided guidance within the community and prevented any misunderstandings regarding obligations to
perform it. His fatwa has created a shift in the issues of fiqh related to Friday prayers, which are unravelled
based on the views of the Syafie school, besides taking into consideration certain priorities that are based on the
scenarios that occurr in the local community.

Key words: Scholar, Malay Archipelago, Syeikh Ahmad Khatib Sambas, Fatwa, Friday Prayers
