Jouhadi al-Houssain al-Ba`Amrani
(1942- )
   A writer, Islamic studies scholar, and former high school history teacher, Jouhadi was born in Casablanca, Morocco. He is a member of the Aït Ba`amran tribe in southwestern Morocco. As a youth, he attended Islamic seminaries in his native land, where he learned the art of Qur'an qira'at, or interpretations, and was exposed to the sciences of Islamic studies. Afterward, he earned bachelor's degree in history. He published several articles on the history of Sous and contributed entries to the Ma`lamat al-Maghrib (Encyclopedia of Morocco). He also hosted a radio show on religious affairs in Berber. His works include Tagharast n Ureqqas n Rebbi (The Path of Allah's Messenger, the Prophet of Islam, Mohammed, 1995), a collection of Berber poems titled Timatarin (Symbols, 1997), and tarjamat ma`ani al Qur'an bi-llugha al-amazighiya (Translation of the Meanings of the Qur'an in the Tamazight Language, 2003). Jouhadi writes Berber in Arabic script, a tradition that harks back to the times of Barghwata and Ibn Tumart.
