Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Al-Mahdi Ahmad bin Yahya (1363 - 1436) was an imam of the Zaidi state in Yemen who briefly held the imamate in 1391-1392. Ahmad bin Yahya was a 12th-generation descendant of the Zaidi imam ad-Da'i Yusuf (d. 1012), and was born in either 1363 or 1373. He was very well educated and a prolific writer in various subjects. In 1391, the old imam al-Nasir Muhammad Salah al-Din died, leaving only young offsprings. The qadi ad-Dawwari temporarily took care of the administration in the Zaidi domains of highland Yemen, in the name of an-Nasir's sons. However, the Zaidi ulema assembled in the Jamal ad-Din Mosque in San'a and appointed Ahmad bin Yahya imam under the name al-Mahdi Ahmad.
