Abbasid Caliph who ruled from 902 to 908.
He succeeded his father al Mutadid in 902 and defeated the Qarmatian in 903 and again decisively in 907 who had risen in revolt. He also brought the independent Tulunids in Egypt to an end and defeated the Byzantine general Andronicus in the battle of Tarsus. But he failed to crush the Fatimid dynasty in Tunisia.
