Aḥmad al-Nasafī, Abū Ḥātim al-Rāzī and Abū Yaʿqūb al-Sijistānī set about harmonizing their Ismaili Shiʿi theology with Neoplatonic philosophy which led to the development of a unique intellectual tradition of philosophical theology in Ismailism. These dāʿīs wrote for the educated classes of society and aimed to attract them intellectually.
He wrote several treatises in defence of the doctrine of imamate in general and al-Ḥākim’s imamate in particular, including al-Maṣābīḥ fī ithbāt alimāma, the Risālat mabāsim al-bishārāt and al-Risāla al-wāʿiẓa.

Abū Ḥātim further extended the daʿwa to Ādharbāyjān, in north-western Persia, and to various parts of Daylam in the Caspian region of northern Persia. He succeeded in converting several Daylamī amirs. But the Ismaili daʿwa was officially established in Khurāsān only during the last decade of the rd century/– by Abū ʿAbd Allāh al-Khādim, who set up his secret headquarters at Nīshāpūr.
