Comments
Al-Mahdi or Abu Abdallah Muhammad ibn al-Mansur was the third Abbasid Caliph from 158 AH to 169 AH. He was born in AD 712 and died in AD. 775. He was the father of Abbasid ruler Harun al-Rashid. Al-Mahdi declared that the caliph had the ability – and indeed, the responsibility – to define the orthodox theology of Muslims.
