Ahmad ibn Haṣan Yamânî: He was born in 1973, and he is originally from Siamer tribe. He isn’t Sayyid, but he has put a black turban on his head! On the other side, he also introduced himself as an, naïve and rural one. But after a while, he claimed that he was the successor of Imām Zamān (mgehr). Afterward, he claimed that he was the very Imām Zamān (mgehr).



1- ʿAbd al-Raḥmān ibn Muḥammad ibn al-Ashʿath commonly known as Ibn al-Ashʿath after his grandfather, was a distinguished Arab nobleman and general under the early Umayyad Caliphate, most notable for leading a failed rebellion against the Umayyad viceroy of the east, al-Hajjaj ibn Yusuf, in 700–703.


The scion of a distinguished family of the Kindaite tribal nobility, he played a minor role in the Second intrigue (680–692) and then served as governor of Rayy. After the appointment of al-Hajjaj as governor of Iraq and the eastern provinces of the Caliphate in 694, relations between the haughty and overbearing al-Hajjaj and the Iraqi nobility quickly became strained. Nevertheless, in 699 or 700, al-Hajjaj appointed Ibn al-Ashʿath as commander of a huge Iraqi army, the so-called “Peacock Army”, to subdue the troublesome principality of Zabulistan, whose ruler, the Zunbīl, vigorously resisted Arab expansion.

During the campaign, al-Hajjaj’s overbearing behavior caused Ibn al-Ashʿath and the army to rebel. After patching up an agreement with the Zunbīl, the army started on its march back to Iraq. On the way, a mutiny against al-Hajjaj developed into a full-fledged anti-Umayyad rebellion.

2- Yazīd ibn al-Muhallab (Arabic: يزيد بن المهلب‎) (672–720) was a provincial governor in the time of the Umayyad dynasty and an early member of the Muhallabid family that became important in early Abbasid times.

In A.H. 78 (697-698 CE) al-Hajjaj ibn Yusuf, the Caliphate’s viceroy of the eastern provinces, appointed Yazīd’s father al-Muhallab ibn Abi Sufra as governor of Khorāsān. In A.H. 82 (701-702) al-Muhallab’s son Mughira died and al-Muhallab sent Yazīd to replace him. Soon afterwards al-Muhallab died and al-Hajjaj appointed Yazīd governor of Khorāsān. There Yazīd confronted external and internal enemies, including some rebels entering his province who were supporters of Abd al-Rahman ibn Muhammad ibn al-Ashʿath. Yazīd defeated them. Yazīd seized Nizak’s fortress and made peace with him.

3- `Abd ar-Rahman ibn Muḥammad (died 16 June 1825) was the Emir of Harar (1821 – 1825).


On the death of his brother, Emir Ahmad II ibn Muhammad, `Abd ar-Rahman and his other brother `Abd al-Karim quarreled over who would succeed, and `Abd ar-Rahman gained the throne first with the help of the Babille Oromo who dwelled to the east of Harar. However, while returning from an unsuccessful campaign to extract tribute from the Ala Oromo in 1825, he was betrayed to these people and `Abd al-Karim made himself Emir. Abd al-Rahman appealed for help from his Babille allies, who helped him resist his deposition. In the end, `Abd ar-Rahman was deposed and forty villages are listed as having been destroyed by the Oromo to the north, west and south of Harar, as well as in Babille country during this civil war.

4- Ibn Khaldun writes elsewhere in the events of the seventh century:

Abdul Rahim bin Abdul Rahman bin Alfurs, who was a member of the Andalusian clerical class, once attended Mansour’s parliament. He spoke sharply and then left the parliament and lived for some time secretly. After Mansoor’s death, he appeared in the area of ​​”Khazoleh” and claimed the Imamate and claimed that it is the same fanatic that the Prophet (pbuh) said about him: “The resurrection does not come until a man resurrects from Qahtan (Yemen) and Leading the people with his head and bringing the earth as full of oppression to justice. “Nasser ibn Mansour sent a ringleader to him. Abdul Rahim was killed in this battle after the defeat, and his head was sent to Morocco and hanged there.


5-Ahmad al-Hassan, full name Ahmad bin Ismail bin Saleh bin Hussain bin Salman (born 1968) is the leader of the Shia Iraqi movement Ansar of Imam al-Mahdi who claims to be the savior of mankind. His followers believe him to be al-Yamani, the eschatological leader from Yemen who will precede the return of the Imam, although this is not a mainstream belief in Shia Islam. He has written some books, and answers questions posed to him by his followers on his website.

There has been speculation that al-Hassan was involved in the Battle of Najaf. He has denied any such involvement and called such violent groups as the path of Satan. His adherents have asserted that their movement is peaceful, and have blamed the Iraqi authorities for false accusations.

He was instrumental in the Houthi insurgency against the Yemeni government, which began in 2004. al-Houthi, who was a one-time rising political aspirant in Yemen, had wide religious and tribal backing in northern Yemen’s mountainous regions.
