Not to be confused with Jalaluddin Hassan.

Jalālu-d-Dīn Ḥassan III (1187–unknown), son of Nūru-d-Dīn Muḥammad II, was the 25th Nizāri Ismā‘ilī Imām.

His life[edit]

Imām Jalāl al-Dīn Ḥassan invited many Sunni scholars and jurists from across Khurasan and Iraq to visit Alamut Castle, and even invited them to inspect the library and remove any books they found to be objectionable.[1]:405 During his lifetime, he maintained friendly relations with the `Abbasid Caliph al-Nasir. An alliance with the caliph of Baghdad meant greater resources for the self-defence of not only the Nizārī Ismā'īlī state, but also the broader Muslim world.[2]:29
