This article surveys the available sources for the history of the Ṭayyibī Ismāʿīlī daʿwa in Yemen, in particular in the years leading up to its relocation to India in 974/1566 and beyond. To date, this period has received little attention from historians of Yemen and Ismāʿīlism due to a lack of available sources, which was caused by the exclusive nature of the community and the hostility it has faced throughout its history. The present contribution is a first step in closing this gap in Yemeni and Ismāʿīlī history. A sample from a collection of correspondence exchanged between the daʿwa officials in Yemen and India (Qarāṭīs al-Yaman) is edited in an appendix.
