Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An-Nasir Abdallah (1811 - April 1840) was an Imam of Yemen who ruled in 1837-1840. He was a member of the Qasimid family, descendants of the Prophet Muhammad, which dominated the Zaidi imamate of Yemen from 1597 to 1962. Abdallah bin Muhammad bin al-Qasim bin Abbas was a great-grandson of Imam al-Mahdi Abbas (d. 1775). He was originally an imam of the prayer at the Qubbat Mahdi Abbas in San'a.In February 1837, the unqualified incumbent al-Mansur Ali II was deposed by the soldiery of San'a, since their salary was in arrears. Abdallah successfully made his da'wa (call for the immate) with the help of his partisans among religious students. The deposed imam and his uncle Sidi Muhammad were kept prisoners by the new ruler, who took the name an-Nasir Abdallah.show more
