In the Arab West, as in the Arab East, numerous attempts were made to separate from the Ottoman Sultanate for various reasons, but the most important of which was the tyranny under which the peoples of the Islamic world were suffering, during the rule of this wretched, extinct sultanate. Some western countries such as Britain, which occupied India (before its division) and Egypt before the fall of the Sultanate, infiltrated the edges and heart of the Arabian Peninsula, and were able to employ successive groups to serve them. One of these groups that wear the robe of religion, the name "Wahhabism", was founded by Muhammad bin Abdul Wahhab in the second half of the eighteenth century, in agreement with Muhammad bin Saud, who accepted the da'wa in his tribe and his men to become the doctrine of the Saudi authority.
