The case of the qādī Ibrāhī;m b. al-Jarrāh, who took a part in the surrender of the Egyptian governor 'Ubayd Allāh b. al-Sarī b. al-Hakam in 211/826, sheds light on the diplomatic use of qādī-s. With their special knowledge of legal books and formulas, qādī-s were increasingly seen by rulers as important experts who could use law to constrain the power of political rivals.
