Example text

This original cyclical view of religious history was modified after ʿAbd Allāh alMahdī’s doctrinal reform, which allowed for more than one heptad of imams in the era of Islam. Recognizing continuity in the imamate, the advent of the seventh era now lost its earlier messianic appeal for the Fatimid Ismailis, for whom the final eschatological age, whatever its nature, was postponed indefinitely into the future; while the functions of the Mahdi who would initiate the Day of Resurrection (qiyāma) at the end of time, were to be similar to those envisaged by other Muslim communities.

Wrote a voluminous history of Islamic Egypt, al-Nujūm al-zāhira fī mulūk Miṣr wa’l-Qāhira, which includes an elaborate account of Fatimid Egypt. There were other Egyptian historians, such as Ibn al-Furāt (d. /), writing on the Fatimids. However, the only Sunni author to have produced a separate and substantial history of the Fatimids was Taqī al-Dīn Aḥmad b. ʿAlī al-Maqrīzī (d. /), the dean of the medieval Egyptian historians. He produced an extensive account of the Fatimid dynasty in his Ittiʿāẓ al-ḥunafāʾ.

It was from that locality that he began to organize a reinvigorated Ismaili daʿwa sending dāʿīs to different districts around Khūzistān. At an unknown date in the first half of the rd/th century, ʿAbd Allāh found refuge in Syria, where he reestablished contact with some of his dāʿīs, and settled in Salamiyya, continuing to pose as a Hāshimid merchant. Henceforth, Salamiyya served as the secret headquarters of the Ismaili daʿwa. The efforts of ʿAbd Allāh and his successors began to bear fruit in the s/s, when numerous dāʿīs appeared in southern Iraq and adjacent regions.
