Who was Habbus al-Muzaffar?

Habbus bin Makhsen al-Muzaffar, of the Zirid dynasty, was ruler of Taifa of Granada from 1019 to 1038.

He was the successor to his uncle Zawi ibn Ziri. His first Vizier was Shmuel ha-Nagid, the renowned Jewish scholar and politician. Under his rule, the prestige of the teif was greatly increased, and he carried out military campaigns against neighbor states, increasing Granada's territory. The Jewish population in the city increased to 5,000, and Lucena flourished as a Jewish scholarly site.

He had two sons, Badis ibn Habbus and Buluggin, and was succeeded by Badis.
