Abd al-Hamīd ibn Mustafa ibn Makki ibn Badis (Arabic: عبد الحميد بن مصطفى بن المكي بن باديس), better known as فضيلة الشيخ بن باديس (Arabic: عبد الحميد بن باديس (December 4, 1889 – April 16, 1940) was an Algerian teacher, Islamic reformer and scholar. He was an important person in matters of cultural nationalism. In 1931, Ben Badis founded the Association of Algerian Muslim Ulema. It was a national group of many Islamic scholars in Algeria. The members of the group had many different ways of thinking about things. They did not always agree on many things. The group had a great influence on Algerian Muslim politics up to the Algerian War of Independence. At this time, the group created many institutions to teach Algerian children of Muslim parents. Each month, it also published a journal, the Al-Chihab. Souheil Ben Badis provided information to it between 1925 and his death in 1940. The journal told its readers about the groups ideas and thoughts on religious reform. It dealt with religious and political issues.

In North Africa, the influence of al-Afghani and Abduh on the thought and outlook of reformers like Morocco's Bonchaib al-Doukkali (Abu Shuayb al- Dukkali) and Allal al-Fasi, Tunisia's Abd al-Aziz al-Thalabi, and Algeria's Abd alHamid ibn Badis (Ben Badis) was such that Islamic reformism in North Africa is often simply referred to as Salafiyya or neo-Salafiyya movements.
