Shams ad-Din ibn Muhammad

 

Shams ad-Din ibn Muhammad (reigned 14721487) was a Sultan of the Sultanate of Adal and a son of Muhammad ibn Badlay.
During Shams ad-Din's reign, an army of the Emperor of Ethiopia Eskender invaded Adal (around 1479-1480) and seized Dakkar, destroying houses and places of worship; however, on its return home the Adal forces ambushed the Ethiopian army and inflicted heavy casualties. As a result, no further expeditions were sent against Adal by the Ethiopians until the reign of Emperor Na'od.
