|A fact from this article was featured on Wikipedia's Main Page in the On this day section on June 2, 2019.|
What exactly does "Soon, he replaced the weak Al-Mu'tamid largely by ousting the government." mean?
- This review is transcluded from Talk:Al-Muwaffaq/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.
- Again here, it would be very helpful to include information on his brothers and family, since it becomes important later in the article.
- "On his return to Samarra, Abu Ahmad was initially received with honour by the Caliph, but soon he was thrown into prison, along with another of his brothers, al-Mu'ayyad." -- why were they imprisoned?
- "In return for the Turks' loyalty he practically abolished the other competing corps of the caliphal army" -- how did he do this? Reducing their size or strength?
- "...but despite Ya'qub's death in 879..." -- cause of death?
- Again, any info on his wives and children would be helpful here as well.
- Duplicate links tool is returning a few results you'll want to look at.
- Dab links tool shows no problems, and Checklinks tool is showing no errors in external links.
- Great work, the writing and sourcing here is of a high quality and I'll gladly pass the GA once the above issues are resolved. —Ed!(talk) 18:37, 18 December 2012 (UTC)
- Thanks for yet another review, Ed. I've clarified points 2-4. On his family, I'll add a few details, but it may take a few days due to Christmas. Constantine ✍ 09:36, 22 December 2012 (UTC)
- I've re-checked Tabari and other sources, but no other children of al-Muwaffaq are mentioned, apart from al-Mu'tadid. Given that al-Mu'tadid himself was born to a slave concubine, he was probably unmarried (though I have not found a direct statement to that effect) and he certainly had no other sons.
