Memoirs of a Mission: The Ismaili Scholar, Statesman and Poet, Al-Mu-ayyad Fi'l-Din Al-Shirazi
Al-Mu'ayyad fi'l-DIn al-ShIrzI (died 470/1087), was an outstanding, multi-talented Fatimid scholar of Persian origin. He excelled as a missionary-agent, statesman, poet, preacher and theologian. Based on his autobiography, this work provides an insight into the remarkable life and achievements of al-Mu'ayyad through the important stages of his career, describing his daring attempt to win over the Buyids of western Iraq to the Fatimid cause, his dangerous flight to Cairo and finally his expedition to Syria and Iraq to build up an alliance of local rulers against the invading Saljuk Turks. The author demonstrates that in addition to being an intriguing personal account, the life of al-Mu'ayyad is a rich source of Islamic history in the 5/llth century, which deals with crucial events in the struggle between the Fatimids, Abbasids, Buyids and Saljuks for supremacy in the Muslim world.

Die Mission Des Fatimidischen Agenten Al-Mu'ayyad Fi D-Din in Siraz
Im Mittelpunkt der Studie steht die Sira, in der al-Mu'ayyad fi d-din as-Sirazi, daci des Fatimidenimam al-Mustansir, von seinen propagandistischen Aktivitaten am Hof des Buyiden Abu Kaligar in Iran berichtet. Um Intention und Adressaten der autobiographischen Schrift zu klaren, wird sie in Zusammenhang mit anderen ismacilitischen sira-Werken gestellt und mit der Risala al-mugaza alkafiya fi adab ad-ducat verglichen, in der Mu ayyads alterer Kollege Ahmad b. Ibr. an-Naisaburi die Bedingungen und Normen der dacwa zusammenstellte. Der zweite Teil der Untersuchung wendet sich der internationalen politischen Dynamik der spaten Buyidenzeit zu. Er will erklaren, warum der Mission des spater als Magalis-Autor und Politiker beruhmt gewordenen al-Mu'ayyad in der Epoche der Renaissance des sunnitischen Islam nur kurzfristig Erfolg beschieden war.
