Abstract

This article focuses on the visit by two Fātimid dā'īs (missionaries or propagandists) to 'Umar ibn Hafsūn, a controversial figure in the history of Muslim Spain. Emphasising the significance of the gifts they brought to Bobastro, Ibn Hafsūn's headquarters, this article analyses the diplomatic relations between North Africa and Islamic Spain in the 10th century and the earliest introduction of Shī'ism in Western Europe. Cette contribution porte sur la visite de deux dā'īs fātimides (missionaires ou propagandistes) à 'Umar ibn Hafsūn qui fut un personnage contesté dans l'histoire de l'Espagne musulmane. Un examen détaillé des cadeaux apportés par eux à Bobastro, le siège de 'Umar ibn Hafsūn, mène à l'analyse des relations diplomatiques entre le Maghreb et l'Andalus au Xème siècle à l'aube de l'introduction de la doctrine chiite en Europe occidental.
