And it will be shown during the 3rd century the term Islamic Maghreb equivalent of North Africa, in the words of Ibn Abd al-Hakam (d. 257 AH), the Maghreb was divided into three states in the period between 160 to 184 hegira will bring new labels (Aghlabids "Near Maghreb"- Rustamids "East Maghreb"- Idrisids "Far Maghreb"), and it will continue to handle these labels to the era of Hafsids dynasty - Ziyanid dynasty - Marinid dynasty. The al-Bakri (d. 487 AH) first used the term East Maghreb from Islamic sources during the 5th century AH/11th century AD, then the term has become a trader in the Islamic sources that came after him.
