This chapter draws together the themes of the previous chapters and gives a case study of two prominent families in the Islamic East, the Āl Zubāra and the Āl BuṭṭĀnĪ. Both families combined their sacred descent with other sources of elite status, such as wealth and learning, to ensure their place as the primi inter pares of the Eastern Islamic elites.

Keywords:   ʻAlids, Latin Capital Letter A with Macron>l Zubāra, Āl BuṭṭĀnĪ, families, Islamic elite, Islamic society
