Madani, Abdullah al-
MADANI, ABDULLAH AL-
Journalist and member of both the Constitutional Assembly and the National Assembly in Bahrain.
A religiously trained Shiʿite, Abdullah al-Madani represented a rural district in Bahrain. He was elected to the Constitutional Assembly in 1972 and 1973. In both assemblies, he was the leader of the conservative (Shiʿa) religious bloc—the other two blocs being the bourgeois nationalists and the reformists (leftists). During his service, he started a weekly magazine, al-Mawaqif, which he edited and published. He was conservative on social-Islamic issues but liberal on political issues. His editorials in al-Mawaqif probably made him some enemies; he was assassinated in the late 1970s.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
