ʽAli ibn Daʽud

  (Redirected from `Ali ibn Da`ud)

`Ali ibn Da`ud was the emir of Harar from 1647-71. He founded a new dynasty of rulers. However, according to Richard Pankhurst, during his reign, the Harar's problems with the surrounding Oromos continued. In 1662 the Emir's troops met in battle of the Illamo Oromo, "which resulting in heavy casualties, doubtless on both sides," notes Pankhurst. "Those killed included the Amir's son Sabr ad-Din."[1]

He was succeeded by his son, Abdallah I ibn Ali.
