Many reasons and causes led to the establishment of the Fatimid Khilafah in al ه Ifrighiyyah )Muslim Africa( in 792 AH. Among all such reasons, economic ones have not been taken very seriously by historians though the significance of such causes is by no means any less than the importance of other sets of foctors involved here.
In this Paper, the economic conditions of the time and the role they played in the establishment of the Fatimid Khilafah are investigated. Part of such economic causes is related to the prevailing conditions in Ifrighiyyah and Maghrib in the second half of the 3rd century AH and some others are related to the Fatimids' own activities in the period of their invitation and call to rising. Both of these categories of causes are discussed in this article.
