Yahya III ibn Al-Qassim (Arabic: يحيى الثالث بن القاسم‎) was the eighth Idrisid ruler and sultan of Morocco. He took over after the death of Ali II in 880. He died in 904.[1]

He was nicknamed Al-Kettani or the one related to linen, "Kettan" in Arabic. This nickname was a result of him ordering his troops in Tlemcen to use linen made tents. His descendants are the Kettani family, which is well known in Morocco. [2][verification needed]
