He was again made sultan in 1362 in succession to Tachufin ibn Ali. From 1362 to 1364 Sijilmasa in the south of the country was ruled independently, first by Abd al-Halim ibn Umar, Abu Muhammed (1362-1363) and then by Abd al-Mu'mim ibn Umar, Abu Malik (1353-1364).
In 1366 Sultan Abu Zayyan tried to remove his vizier Umar bin Abdulla al-Yabani from office, and was killed in response. Abu Faris Abdul Aziz I came to the throne. Once he was firmly in control he had the vizier killed.
