Ruler of Alamūt
On 25 Rabīʿ II 518 (11 June 1124), a day before death of Ḥasan-e Ṣabbaḥ, Ḥasan appointed him his successor. He generally followed the policies of Ḥasan-e Ṣabbaḥ and enforced the Sharia strictly. In his early reign the Isma'ili hold was expanded in particular in Eshkevar and Taleghan.
The text of a bedtime prayer, titled "Prayer in Bedtime" (دعا در هنگام خواب du'ā dar hingām-i khwāb) in Persian attributed to Kiya Buzurg Ummid, is preserved in a manuscript of the Institute of Ismaili Studies in London.
