Imamate of Imam Mansoor - 946-952AD

Year: 
0946 - 0952
Location: 

During his seven years of Imamate and Caliphate, Imam Mansoor as the third Fatimid Caliph, encountered many forces which were actively seeking to undermine the security of the Fatimid Empire, most notably the Kharijis, led by Abu-Yezid Khariji and later by his son Fazal, and the Umayyad ruler in Spain. Despite these pressures, the boundaries of the Fatimid territory were maintained and the Ismaili dawa, under the leadership of Pir Abdul Majid bin Pir Ghalibuddin, spread as far as Afghanistan (Aziz, 1974).
