An exact solution of the flow of heat and viscous fluid on a porous plate by using perturbation is obtained for the conjugate problem of an electrically conducting fluid in the presence of strong magnetic field by introducing the Hall currents. The fluid half-space is considered to be porous. Large time solution and effects of porous medium are discussed. It was shown that Hall Effect setup an opposing force which reduces the velocity. Temperature and velocity distributions have been obtained and the effect of various values of nondimensional physical parameters on streamline patterns and skin friction coefficient and Nusselt number are presented and discussed
