Triumph of Islam during Yazid’s rule
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
After the brutal murder of Imam
Hussain ibn Ali (r.a.) in the fields of
There was a regular clash for the leadership of the muslims between the Ummayyeds of Damascus and the believers of Makkah and Medina; and over time this political scramble for leadership resulted in breaking the Muslim Ummah into several factions; each proclaiming its allegiance to its leader. Although the differences were political, in time, it took on a religious fervour and resulted in the formation of many governments from Africa to Spain to Arabia! Through all these turmoils of leadership, the true believers were disgusted with the political infighting, and practiced their Islam according to the guidance of the Quran and Sunnah.
We must always remember that the deen of Islam was completed, the Quran revealed, and the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (saws) was established at the time of the death of the Prophet (saws). Whatever happened after the death of the Prophet (saws) is the History of the Muslims, and this is in the knowledge of Allah Alone. Allah will not hold us accountable for the deeds of these people, nor ask us about them on the Day of Judgment. We will be asked about our deeds and what did we do for the cause of Islam.
Allah says in the Holy Quran Chapter 2 Surah Baqarah verse 134: They were a people who passed away. They shall receive the reward of what they earned, and you shall have the reward of what you will earn. And you will not be questioned as to what they did.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah’s Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
