The Fathimiyah dynasty is one of the Islamic dynasties that ever existed and also had a stake in enriching the treasures of Islamic civilization history. Likewise, Muhammad's mission as the Messenger of Allah had incised the history of Islam, which
at first was only a nation of ignorance who didn’t know compassion and mutual respect. This article uses the library research approach. The results found that the Fathimiyah dynasty was one of the great empires throughout Islamic history. In the beginning, this was only a small dynasty which broke away from the Abbasiyah’s power. They were able to rule for more than two centuries before being conquered by the Ayyubiyah dynasty under the leadership of Salah al-Din al-Ayyubi. During his reign, the Fathimiyyah dynasty were deeply concerned with the development of the Shi’ah Isma'iliyah understanding. For their success, they require all officials in the ranks of government and community members to embrace that understanding. This effort was quite successful, marked by the many people who were willing to accept it even though it came from non-Muslims.
