Ahmad bin Ali al-Fathi (died 1349) was a claimant to the Zaidi
state in Yemen, who posed as imam in 1329-1349, in rivalry with
other figures. Ahmad bin Ali al-Fathi was a seventh-generation
descendant of Imam Abu'l-Fath an-Nasir ad-Dailami (d. 1053). He
originated from the village Wakash in the Bani Matar area west of
San'a. After the death of Imam al-Mahdi Muhammad bin al-Mutahhar in
1328, several pretenders surfaced. Ahmad bin Ali al-Fathi made his
da'wa (call for the imamate) in 1329, from his base in the Sufian
area. He is sometimes known by the title ad-Da'i (the one who
practices da'wa). However, he had to contend with three other
claimants called al-Mu'ayyad Yahya (d. 1346), an-Nasir Ali bin
Salah (d. 1329), and al-Wathiq al-Mutahhar (d. 1379/80).
