|Predecessor||Badis ben Habus|
|Father||Buluggin ibn Badis|
Abdallah ibn Buluggin (Full name:ʿAbd Allāh ben Buluggīn ben Bādīs ben Ḥabūs ben Zīrī, 1056 – after 1090), also known as Al-Muzaffar, the conqueror, is the grandson of Badis ben Habus. He is the last, Zirid, ruler of the Taifa of Granada (1073-1090).
When his grandfather died in 1073, the territory of the Zirids in al-Andalus is split between Abdullah and his brother Tamim. Although he was younger than Tamim, Abdullah had been named Badis's successor in 1064 after Bullugin's death, preferring it to his son Maksan (uncle of Tamim and Abdallah).
During his exile in Aghmat ibn Bulughin wrote his memoirs and the history of the Zirids in Granada. It is called Al-Tibyan an al-haditha al-kaina bi-dawlat Bani Ziri fi Gharnata (An Expositon of the Downfall of the Zirid Dynasty in Granada).
