Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. An-Nasir Ahmad (d. 5 June, 934) was the third imam of the Zaidi state in Yemen. Through his active leadership he confirmed and expanded the polity founded by his two predecessors. Ahmad bin Yahya was born in Hijaz (present-day Saudi Arabia) as the son of the later imam al-Hadi ila'l-Haqq Yahya and his niece Fatimah. In 897 he followed his father and his brother Muhammad to Yemen, where al-Hadi was acknowledged as the first imam of the Zaydiyya branch of Shi'a Islam in Yemen. By 907 he was assisting his father as military commander. After a sojourn in Hijaz he returned to the Zaidi capital in Yemen, Sa'dah, where he was chosen to succeed his brother al-Murtada Muhammad in September 913.
