Amin Abd al-Hadi (Arabic: أمين عبد الهادي; l897–1967) was the former head of the Supreme Muslim Council. Originally a member of the Ottoman parliament, but was later appointed by the British Mandate authorities to a provisional advisory council which served as a legislative body in Palestine dealing with self-government issues in May 1923. In 1929, he was elected a member of the Supreme Muslim Council. He later succeeded Amin al-Husayni as head of the council after Jordan appointed him the position on December 20, 1948. He moved to Cairo in the late 1960s and died there in 1967.[1]
