He is successor to the ninth Imam, Ahmed ibn Abdellah and father of next Imam Al Mahdi who was the founder of the Fatimid Caliphate.
The 8th to 10th Ismaili Imams were hidden from the public, because of threats from Abbasid caliphate, and were known by their nicknames. However, the Dawoodi Bohra in their religious text, Taqqarub, claim to have the true names of all 21 imams in sequence including those "hidden" imams: 8th Imam "ʿAbd Allāh ibn Muḥammad ibn Ismāʿīl al-Wafī" the true name/ (Wafī Ahmad), 9th Imam "Aḥmad ibn ʿAbd Allāh ibn Muḥammad at-Taqī" the true name/ (Taqī Muhammad), and the 10th Imam "al-Ḥusayn ibn Aḥmad ibn ʿAbd Allāh ar-Raḍī/al-Zakī" the true name/ '(Raḍī Abdullah)'
