One last coin bought recently in Sana'a, Yemen. I don't really know anything about this one. Could it be Rassulid?

hmmmm

to me it looks earlier than a rassulid coin
it looks more like a bad copy of a umayyad/abbasid dirhem


everything you need is there on  the coin its just a question of being able to read it.

Thanks Rick and KIR,

Taking the suggestion it might be a 'contemporary' forgery, do you think this in the sense of ' the same time/period' or do you think it is more likely a modern forgery?

The problem with the word "contemporary" is that in English it means either "of the same time" or "current, modern."
