Authorship attribution analysis is a research field that assigns an author to an unknown text based on writing features. These features reflect the author’s gender, age, religion, education, job, motivation or ideology. It has several types of features such as character, lexical, Syntactic, Structural and Semantic. This research proposed using Arabic ontology as a semantic feature in authorship attribution through a proposed new model. In the Islamic society, there is a problem in detecting unknown fatwa to specific jurisprudence doctrine so this research proposed a new model for detecting unknown fatwa to specific jurisprudence doctrine. This model depends on a new corpus which is manually collected and annotated fatwas from books of Islamic jurisprudence doctrines. This corpus is called ElWafaa LlFokahaa. It includes the fatwas of traveller's prayer for main Islamic doctrines (Hanfi, Shafie, Malki, and Hanbali). The proposed model used Arabic ontology for traveller's prayer in each Islamic doctrine which is established with protégé framework. It is divided into a training set in 70% of fatwas (known fatwas the owing Islamic jurisprudence doctrines) and 30% testing set (unknown fatwas of Islamic jurisprudence doctrines). For evaluating the proposed model, it is used the proposed evaluated method which is 90% with final experiments.
