Abul-Abbas Ahmad Bun Talha (Arabic: أبو العباس أحمد بن יلحة, Latin transcription: Abuʿl-ʿAbbās Aḥmad b. Muutadido Bi-Rah (Arabic: المعتضد بالله, Latin transcription: al-Muʿtaḍid Biʿllāh, meaning "a person who seeks support from God") is the 16th Abul-Abbas dynasty (reign:) October 892-April 5, 902). Muutadido is the son of Mutammid's brother, Muwafak, who came to power as a governor under the reign of his uncle Muutamid and became the de facto ruler of the Abbasid dynasty. As an Abbasid prince, Muutadido engaged in various military activities under his father, playing an important role in suppressing the Zanj Rebellion in particular. Mwafak died in June 891, and Muutadido succeeded Mwafak as a governor. After that, he moved Mufawad, who was considered to be Mutamid's son and successor, from the position of his successor, and succeeded to the caliphate position after Mutammid's death in October 892. Like his father, Muutadido's power relied on a close relationship with his army. Initially this relationship was built during military action against the Zanj Rebellion and later strengthened by caliph-led expeditions. Through his power and ability, Muutadido succeeded in regaining power and some regions lost in the turmoil of the last few decades under the Abbasid dynasty. Muutadido regained control of the Upper Mesopotamia, Sugur, and Jibal regions through a series of military actions, and reached a reconciliation with the Saffarid dynasty in the east and the Tulunids in the west. These successes were brought about by directing the finances almost exclusively to the maintenance of the army, while efforts to rebuild the financial base led to the bloat of the treasury bureaucracy, resulting in a greedy caliph. The reputation has become established. He also returned his capital from Samarra to Baghdad, where Muutadido was involved in important building activities. Al-Mu'tadido is famous for the rigors of punishing criminals, and later chroniclers recorded many original methods of torture of Al-Mu'tadido. And despite being a strong supporter of Sunni traditional theology, he worked to maintain good relations with Shiites such as the Zaidiyyah, and became interested in the natural sciences to scholars and scientists. Resumed support by the Caliph. However, despite these successes, Muutadido's reign was so short that it could not lead to a long-term turnaround in the dynasty's fortunes. Also, the Abbasid rebirth led by Muutadido relied heavily on his own energetic action. The short reign of Muqtafi, the son of a poor successor, had some important achievements, primarily the annexation of Tulunid territories, but his successors were as active as Muutadido. I didn't have it, and I saw the rise of the Karmatians as a new hostile force. And over the decades of intensifying factional conflicts within the bureaucracy that became apparent in the second half of the reign of Baghdad, it undermined the Abbasid government and eventually the dynasty under a series of military influential people. Leading to subordination, this trend was Baghdad by the Buyid dynasty in 946.
