Ismaili Hero - Jawhar B. Abdullah

Abu al-Hasan Jawhar B. Abdullah, commonly known as Jawhar as-Siqilli tracing his origin from his country of birth, Sicily in Italy.
By his able suppression of revolts in North Africa, he became the most influential man in the Empire. He was not only a good soldier but also an able administrator; for he ruled Egypt, completely, for many years before Imam al-Muizz came there. After that, he withdrew only to his military duties and remained the commander-in-chief throughout his life. He died in 381 A.H. in the time of Imam al-Aziz.
