continued to retain the title of Imam till his death, which
occurred during the reign of the late Seyyid Said, the son
of Sultan, the Imam Said's brother, who succeeded Haraed.
While the Imam Said lived it would have been incompatible
with the religious system of the Ibadhiyah, unless he had
been previously deposed, to appoint another to that dignity;
hence those who administered the government during his
lifetime were simply styled " Seyyids/ The question why
the title of " Imam" was not resumed after his death is
discussed in the article on the Imamate given in Appen
dix A.
Very few noteworthy events * occuiTed during the ten
years of H^med's regency. He was on friendly terms with
the el-Yaarubah, and does not appear to have been molested
by the Benu-Ghafir, although he succeeded in capturing el-
Hazm from one of their allies, which he then made over to
the Benu-Hinah, or el-Hiuay. He added a tower to the
western fortress commanding the harbour at Maskat, and
built two detached forts at Kiwa and Barkah. Some mis
understanding having arisen betwixt him and his uncle Seif,
which led to the departure of the latter for the east coast of
Africa, probably with a hostile intent against his nephew's
authority in that quarter, Hamed followed him to Lamu;
but finding that Seif had died there he returned to 'Oman,
when his uncle Sultan began to retaliate upon him by stirring
up the Nizariyyah of Semail to rebel. A reconciliation was
eventually effected between uncle and nephew, and they
continued on friendly terms ever after, although Ildmed
lived in great dread of Sultan's superior prowess and in
fluence. Hdmed was making preparations for a warlike ex
pedition on a grand scale when he was seized with small
pox at Maskat, where he was joined by his father, the Imam
Said, from er-Rastak, on the night of whose arrival the new
cr-Rahmdny frigate was burnt in the harbour. He died on
the 18th of March, 1702, and was buried in the central
Wadi, behind Maskat.
