Abd al-Aziz of Mogadishu (Arabic: عبد العزيز‎‎) was a 14th-century Somali ruler in Kinolhas,Maldives.


Biography

The presence and high position of Abd al-Aziz in this region highlights the close connections between medieval Maldives and the Somali seamen from Mogadishu sailing the Indian Ocean. They supplied Maldivian traders with exotic animals and musk, and contributed to the ethnogenesis of the Maldivian population.

In 1346, Abd al-Aziz welcomed Ibn Battuta at his court and entertained him before giving him a barque to continue his journey.
