Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Al-Mahdi Muhammad bin al-Mutahhar (1275 - October 28, 1328) was an imam of the Zaidi state in Yemen who ruled from 1301 to 1328. His father was the imam al-Mutawakkil al-Mutahhar bin Yahya who held the imamate in the late 13th century with varying success. After al-Mutawakkil's death in Hajjah in 1298, al-Mahdi Muhammad claimed the succession, although the imamate was not strictly speaking hereditary. His term as imam is counted from either 1298 or 1301. When he acceded, the Sunni Muslim Rasulid Dynasty was still in a strong position, and dominated most of Yemen including San'a. By and by, however, the imam was able to expand his territory in the highland. The population in the Sheref district suffered from Rasulid maladministration. In 1311, they heeded the summons of the imam, who started a military campaign against the oppressors.
