Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Al-Mutawakkil al-Mutahhar bin Yahya (June 1217 - June 23, 1298) was an imam of the Zaidi state in Yemen whose imamate lasted from 1276 to 1298. When the old imam al-Mahdi Ibrahim was defeated and captured by the Rasulid sultan, the Zaidi elite of the northern Yemeni highland asked the ex-imam al-Hasan bin Wahhas to succeed. When al-Hasan refused, the offer went to al-Mutahhar bin Yahya bin al-Murtada, a descendant of the imam an-Nasir Ahmad (d. 934). He accepted and took the honorific name al-Mutawakkil al-Mutahhar.The strongest political figure in the Zaidi lands was, however, the emir Sarim ad-Din Da'ud, son of a former imam, who was the leader of the Hamzite Sharifs.
