|Kamil Mohammed Taher al-Husayni|
|Born||Kamel ibn Mohammad Taher ibn Mostafa Taher ibn al-Husayni
23 of February 1867
|Successor||Haj Amin al-Husseini|
Al-Husayni was the son of Mohammed Tahir al-Husayni, the first Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. When his father died in 1908, Kamil succeeded him. Politically, his approach was much different than his father's. During the British Mandate for Palestine, he sought compromise with the Jews and British authorities. The British appointed him chairman of the Appeal Courts and later director of the Higher Waqf Committee.
He was succeeded by his brother Mohammad Amin al-Husayni.
