After the death of Salahuddin Ayubi in 1193, his son Aziz became Sultan. In 1200, Sultan Salahuddin Ayubi's brother Al-Adil took over the Ayubi power and then all the later Ayubi were the successors of the Amir and the Sultans of Adil. Al-Adel established positive relations with the governments around him and improved relations with his nearest state, Seljuk. Al-Adel's successors began trading in the Seljuk Empire.

But then, after marrying the daughter of the Amir of Aleppo, their alliance was further strengthened, making it easier for the two states to fight the Byzantines and the Mongols
If you look at history, there has never been a Muslim state that has not fought a war with its Muslim neighbor. Even the states revolted against the caliphs There were wars, but the Seljuk and the Abyssinians were the most friendly kingdoms.

Ayyubid and Seljuks :

The Turkish Seljuk State, aiming at the Turkification of Anatolia and the provision of Turkish unity in the region, entered into sometimes friendly and sometimes hostile relations with neighboring states. The best example of this is the relations with the Ayyubids, who are the continuation of Zengiler, a Turkish principality. It is named after its founder, Selahattin Yusuf b. Eyüp's father Necmettin Eyyub b. Ayyubids, who took it from Shadi, was a Muslim state that ruled between 1175-1260 in Egypt, Damascus (Syria, Jordan, Lebanon), al-Jazeera (Upper Mesopotamia), Diyarbakir and Northern Iraq.
According to the information given by the historical mother-in-laws, the first Seljuk-Ayyubid relationship was realized with the agreement made as a result of the conquest of Aleppo in 1176. Shortly after this event, It took place to inform Selahattin Eyyubi of his victory after Kılıç Arslan II defeated the Byzantines in the Battle of Myryokephalon in 1176. But this friendly relationship that started between the two sides, The direction of Kılıç Arslan II to the east (to provide Anatolian Turkish unity) and his military activities there caused a rift between the parties. 
The first political tension between the Ayyubids and Seljuks arose over Raban's rule. The Seljuk army besieging Raban dispersed before the Ayyubid army and fled.
After the Raban incident, another disagreement occurred. This conflict It happened because of Nurettin Muhammet, the son-in-law of Kılıç Arslan II. The owner of Hısn-ı Keyfa, Nurettin Muhammet b. Kara Arslan b. David b. Artuk, He married Kılıç Arslan's II daughter Selçuk Hatun. Sultan Selcuk gave some castles to Hatun for dowry. But Nurettin Muhammet Kılıç Arslan's daughter moved away from Selçuk Hatun and married a singer. Thus, he dominated the country and the treasury. When the Sultan learned of this situation, he sent an envoy to his son-in-law and demanded the castles he had given as a dowry back. Otherwise, he said that he would take the Artuqid country from him and took over some places in the Harput region. Realizing the seriousness of the situation, Nurettin Muhammet asked Selahattin Eyyubi for help. Therefore, Selahattin Eyyubi, He sent an envoy and a letter to Kılıç Arslan asking him to give up his aggressive attitude. 
Kılıç Arslan, on the other hand, after counting the faults of Nurettin Muhammet, said, "I only want the castles that I gave to my daughter back when she married her." Thereupon, Selahattin Eyyubi said, "You can't touch him, we agreed with him, we took him under our protection. If you will walk on him, we will turn the reins of our horses to his aid.” Thus, a new tension was entered. But With the intervention of Kılıç Arslan's vizier İhtiyarettin Hasan Gafnas, the problem was resolved among themselves. After this event Relations between Kılıç Arslan and Selahattin Eyyubi continued amicably Thereupon, Selahattin Eyyubi said, "You can't touch him, we agreed with him, we took him under our protection. If you will walk on him, we will turn the reins of our horses to his aid.” Thus, a new tension was entered. But With the intervention of Kılıç Arslan's vizier İhtiyarettin Hasan Gafnas, the problem was resolved among themselves. 
Celaleddin, the ruler of Harizmshah, who escaped from the Mongols and came to Azerbaijan and Eastern Anatolia, besieged Amat, which had been in the hands of the Ayyubids since 1207-1208, in the Autumn of 1226. Celaleddin, who lifted the siege in the face of the determination of the Ayyubids, who successfully defended the city, took the region under siege again in 1229. The city, which was attached to the Meliki Eşref of Damascus, was taken over by Celaleddin. The city was destroyed and plundered. Upon this event, Alaeddin Keykubad made an alliance with the Ayyubids and marched on the Harizmshahs. Celalettin Harezmşah was defeated heavily in 1230 in Yassıçemen. Thus, a period of peace was again entered between the Seljuks and Ayyubids.

Extra History Of Ayyubi And Seljuk Empire :

After the Battle of Yassıçemen, the Seljuk and Ayyubid troops put an end to the existence of the Harizmşahlar in Eastern Anatolia. Alaaddin Keykubad and Melik Eşref came to Erzurum together. Alaeddin Keykubad I, who abolished the Seljuk Meliklik located here, connected Erzurum directly to the center. The Seljuk Sultan sent Melik Eşref to Ahlat by presenting him with crescents and horses. He also gave 5000 soldiers under the command of Şemseddin Altunapa In 1231, the Mongols entered the Eastern Anatolia region with the pretext of following Khwarazmshah and raided and plundered the Ayyubid and Artuqid lands. Even Ahlat, which was in the hands of the Ayyubids, was looted. Thereupon, the Seljuks realized the approaching Mongolian danger and sent forces to the Eastern Anatolia region. Meanwhile, the Mongols withdrew to Azerbaijan after plundering and destroying the region. 
Eastern Anatolian cities, especially Ahlat, were devastated by Harizmşah on the one hand and Mongol invasion and plunder on the other hand. Melik Eşref, on the other hand, was not interested in this region and withdrew to Damascus. Upon this situation, Alaeddin Keykubad I sent Kemaleddin Kamyar, one of his commanders, to the region. Reaching Ahlat, the Seljuk commander saw that the city was empty. After the Seljuks came here, the people returned to Ahlat. The people welcomed the Seljuk domination in the region. The Seljuk commander, who sent soldiers to Van, Bitlis, Vatsan, Adilcevaz and Sürmari and inspected the situation, presented to the sultan that the region was devastated and that the Hârezm soldiers, who were left without a head, were helpless and idle. 
Thereupon, the sultan sent vizier Ziyaeddin Kara Arslan, Müstevfi Sadedin Erdebili and Kadı Şeref's son Taceddin Pervane to Ahlat and ordered them to organize the affairs of the region. In addition, Sinaneddin Kaymaz was appointed as the foreman of the region. Thus, due to the neglect of the Ayyubids, the Seljuks took Ahlat and its environs and tied it to them. In addition, the Hârezm lords, who were strayed in the region, were taken to the Seljuk service with some promises and brought to important duties.
