Civilization V Customisation Wiki

The Almohads led by Abd al-Mu'min is a custom civilization mod by DuskJockey, with contributions from Merrick, COF, Arilasqueto, and Tpangolin.

This mod requires Gods and Kings and Brave New World.



The Almohads, in Arabic al-Muwahhidun ("those who affirm the unity of God" or "unitarians"), were a Berber confederation that created an Islamic empire in North Africa and Spain founded on the religious teachings of Ibn Tumart.

Abd al-Mu'min[]

Abd al-Mu'min, in full Abd al-Mu'min ibn Ali, was a Berber caliph of the Almohad dynasty who conquered the North African Maghreb from the Almoravids and brought all the Berbers under one rule.

Dawn of Man[]

"Peace be with you, Abd al-Mu'min ibn Ali, caliph of the majestic Almohad empire. Born into obscurity at the twilight of the 11th century, you would maneuver your way to glory under the tutelage of Muhammed ibn Tumart, mahdi of the Unitarian movement. Under his banner, you would unite the disparate Berber tribes of the Atlas mountains and weld them into a new empire, the Almohad caliphate. This new empire would go on to blot out the crumbling Almoravids and capture their capital of Marrakech. Under your hand the empire extended from Tunis in the east to al-Andalus in the west, marking a golden age of Moroccan history.

Most pious caliph, infidels and blasphemers have trampled over the Almohad way of life, and their excesses cry out to be punished. Will you once more gather an empire of true belivers, and scatter their ill-gotten gains? Will you create a civilization to stand the test of time?"

Introduction: "Peace be with you. I greet you as Abd ibn Ali, a true believer of the one God. What tidings do you bring?"

Defeat: "Heretic! My empire may fall this day, but I shall be avenged by God in heaven!"
