Abdul Hamid Karami

Abdul Hamid Karami (23 October 1890 – 1950) (Arabic: عبد الحميد كرامي‎) was a Lebanese political and religious leader.

Karami descended from one of the most prominent Sunni Muslim families in Lebanon. Members of his family traditionally held the position of mufti of Tripoli, Lebanon. Abdul Hamid Karami became mufti of Tripoli but was removed by the French authorities. He was a leader of the movement to have Lebanon become an independent country, a goal which was achieved by 1943. Karami served as prime minister and finance minister of Lebanon for a brief period, from 10 January 1945 to 20 August 1945. His sons, Rashid Karami and Omar Karami were also important Lebanese politicians who served as prime ministers of Lebanon for more time than their father had.
