In 908 the Isma'ilis, with the help of the Berber Kutama tribes, succeed ed in setting up a Fatimid kingdom in Qayrouan. From this springboard th ey later conquered Egypt and established the Fatimid Caliphate as a riv al to the 'Abassid Empire of Baghdad. Many Berber tribes then became Shi' a, leaving the Kharijism they had accepted in the preceeding century.

The Fatimids however were more interested in the eastern Arab world and lo st interest in the Maghreb. Without a strong central government, Berber tr ibes again fought each other, none of them being strong enough to establi sh its dominance. The wars between the Sanhajah tribes of the east, fighti ng for the Shi'a-Isma'ili Fatimids of Cairo and the western Zanatah trib es fighting for the Sunni Ummayyad Caliphs of Cordoba evolved into a Hundr ed Years War of the Maghreb.
