Yazeed's Killing Of Imam Hussain [as]


Yazeed's killing of Imam Hussain [as]

Azam Tariq Nasibi stated:

Kr-hcy.com states:"IT WOULD BE SEEN THERE FROM THAT YAZID HAD NO HANDS IN THE MURDER OF HAZRAT HUSAYN. MOST OF THE HISTORICAL ACCOUNTS ARE WRITTEN BY SHIAS AND AS SUCH HEAP ALL SORTS OF RUBBISH ON YAZID OUT OF SHEER CONTEMPT AND HATRED AND DEPICT HIM IN ALARMING COLOUR WHICH IS FAR FROM TRUTH AND REALITY. STILL SOME OF THE IGNORANT MUSLIMS ACCUSE HIM UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF SHIAS. THE FACT IS THAT WHEN THE NEWS OF HAZRAT HUSAYN'S MARTYRDOM REACHED YAZID, HE AND HIS FAMILY WEPT. YAZID EVEN SAID: "CURSE OF ALLAH BE ON UBAIDULLAH BIN ZIAD. BY ALLAH! IF HE HAD BEEN A RELATIVE OF HAZRAT HUSAYN HE WOULD HAVE NEVER KILLED HIM. I WOULD HAVE ACCEPTED THE SUBMISSION OF IRAQIS WITHOUT THE KILLING OF HAZRAT HUSAYN."

Here we shall cite the following reputable texts of Ahl'ul Sunnah, that confirm that Yazeed killed Imam Husayn (as):

Durre Maarif Volume 4 page 295 Dikr Zeyneb binte 'Ali

Sharh al Muneer Sharh al Sagheer Volume 1 page 80

We read in Irfan ai Shariath:

"Yazeed tore away a piece of Rasulullah's heart, starving him for three days and then killing him, together with his companions and then he ordered horses to trample his body after his martyrdom, his body was ripped to shreds. Hi head was then placed on a spear, this was a head that Rasulullah (s) would kiss. The head was exhibited at various places, people of the household were arrested and brought before the wicked Yazeed, cursed is he who does not deem such acts as atrocious".

Are all these men, together with the authorities cited at the start including the Grand Sheikh of the Wahabis Ibn Taymiyya, and his successor Ibn Kathir, all SHIAS or influenced by SHIAS??

It's like saying the Pope is Jewish.

I mean what can you say to a man who lies like Azam Tariq (and he is the HEAD of the Wahabis in Pakistan, and they all speak these exported Saudi lies].

Interviewer: Mr. Tariq ... [interruption]

Azam Tariq: No, my name is Mr. Abdul

Interviewer: Mr. Abdul....[interruption]

Azam Tariq: No, my name is Mr. Saleem

Interviewer: Mr. Saleem...[interruption]

Azam Tariq: No, my name is Mr. Mustafa

.....and on it goes.

There must be a medical syndrome for this behaviour....oh yes, it's called pathological liar [also known as Nasibi Syndrome]. Maybe your local Sheikh has symptoms of it.

Yazeed ordered his Governor Waleed kill Imam Hussain [as]

We read in Maqathil Husayn:

"Yazeed wrote a letter to Waleed the Governor of Medina, in which he stated 'Force Husayn to give bayya. Should he refuse then strike off his head and return it to me.'

Yazeed wrote to Ibn Ziyad telling him to kill Imam Hussain [as]

We read in Mutaalib al Saul that:

"Ibn Ziyad wrote to Husayn 'I have received information that you have arrived in Kerbala, and Yazeed has told me not to kill you, provided you accept his authority and mine.'"

Ibn Ziyad's own admission that he killed
Imam Husayn on the orders of Yazeed

We read in al Bidayah:

"When Yazeed wrote to Ibn Ziyad ordering him to fight Ibn Zubayr in Makka, he said 'I can't obey this fasiq. I killed the grandson of Rasulullah (s) upon his orders, I'm not now going to assault the Kaaba'.

Interesting also to note the fact that Azam Tariq says that Yazeed blamed Ibn Ziyad (his governor in Kufa at the time of the Battle of Karbala) for the killing of Husayn (as). Yet we see here the fact that Ibn Ziyad twp years AFTER Karbala is still in a position of authority in Yazeed's government and army. Had Yazeed sincerely wept for Husayn (as) (he did not and Azam Tariq is quoting the story out of context - see imminently later) then he would have dismissed and executed Ibn Ziyad for genocide. Indeed Yazeed kept Ibn Ziyad in a position of authority in Yazeed's government, and indeed Ibn Ziyad outlived Yazeed, till Shia rebels killed him during the insurrection of Al Mukhtar to avenge the blood of Imam Husayn (as).

Testimony of Ibn Abbas that Yazeed killed Imam Hussain [as]

We read in Tareekh Kamil:

Ibn Abbas replied to a letter of Yazeed stating 'You killed Husayn ibn 'Ali as well as the youth from Banu Abdul Muttalib, who were beacons of guidance."

The testimony of Abdullah Ibn Umar that
Yazeed killed Imam Hussain [as]

We read in Maqathil al Husayn:

Ibn Umar wrote to Yazeed, 'Hasn't your heart gone black yet? You murdered the family of the Prophet?'

The Nasibis want to drag the Muslims to hell to face the charge of taking to their heart the man who hurt Muhammad (saws)'s soul more than any other.

Mu'awiya The Second's testimony that his
father Yazeed killed Imam Hussain [as]

We read in Hayaath al Haywaan:

"When Yazeed was succeeded to the throne by his son Mu'awiya he said in his first sermon 'We are definite about Yazeed's wrongdoing, he killed the family of the Prophet, deemed alcohol halal, and brought pain to the Ka'aba."

This was the testimony of the succeeding khalifa, and Yazeed's own son, Mu'awiya The Second.

Yazeed's own admission that he killed
the family of the Prophet (s) We read in Sharh Fiqh Akbar:

"Following the murder of Husayn, Yazeed said 'I avenged the killing of my kaafir relatives in Badr through killing the family of the Prophet".

The testimony of Shah Abdul Aziz that Yazeed killed Imam Hussain[as]We read in Taufa "Upon the orders of Yazeed the disgraceful people from Syria and Iraq killed Imam Husayn".

The testimony of Shah Abdul Haqq that
Yazeed killed Imam Hussain [as]

We read in Ashiath al Lamaath:

"It is unusual that some say Yazeed did not kill Husayn when he instructed Ibn Ziyad to carry out the killing".

Yazeed's pride at killing Imam Hussain [as]

We read in al Bidayah Volume 8 page 204:

"Ibn Asakir, writing on Yazeed, states then when Husayn's head was brought before Yazeed, he recited the couplets of Ibn Zubayri the kaafir 'I wish my ancestors of Badr were hear to see the severed head of the rebellious tribe [The Prophet (saws's tribe of Hashim]."

Did Yazeed express sadness at the death of Imam Hussain [as]?

Nasibi Azam Tariq's lies continue as follows:

Kr-hcy.com states:THE FACT IS THAT WHEN THE NEWS OF HAZRAT HUSAYN'S MARTYRDOM REACHED YAZID, HE AND HIS FAMILY WEPT. YAZID EVEN SAID: "CURSE OF ALLAH BE ON UBAIDULLAH BIN ZIAD. BY ALLAH! IF HE HAD BEEN A RELATIVE OF HAZRAT HUSAYN HE WOULD HAVE NEVER KILLED HIM. I WOULD HAVE ACCEPTED THE SUBMISSION OF IRAQIS WITHOUT THE KILLING OF HAZRAT HUSAYN." THEN HE ACCORDED A VERY GRACIOUS HOSPITALITY TO THE REMAINING FAMILY MEMBERS OF HAZRAT HUSAYN AND ARRANGED THEIR RETURN JOURNEY TO MADINAH WITH GREAT HONOUR AND RESPECT.

We can establish from the texts of Ahl'ul Sunnah that not only was Yazeed content with the death of Imam Husayn (as) he recited a couplet that he had avenged the deaths of his kaafir ancestors, by the killing of Imam Husayn (as) - can this poetry be deemed to be a couplet of regret?

Reply TwoTariq's reference that we presume is a crude translation of the text in al Bidaya wa al Nihaya, we suggest that he cite all that Ibn Katheer had written in that section so that the truth can be made known to all.

We are quoting from al Bidaya wa al Nihaya Volume 8 page 235:

"When Ibn Ziyad killed Husayn and his companions and sent their heads to Yazeed, he [Yazeed] became happy at the death of Husayn which is why the position of Ibn Ziyad was elevated, but this happiness was only short lived".

This text confirms that Yazeed was pleased that Imam Husayn (as) had been killed and the rank of his killer Ibn Ziyad had automatically increased in Yazeed's estimation. The happiness being short-lived means that rebellions arose to avenge Husayn (as)'s martyrdom that threatened to destroy Yazeed's khilafat - Madina, Makka and Iraq all rose up against him, which is why he sent his army in to burn the Ka'aba and sack Madina. Nasibis are not horrified, you see, by these actions by their khalifa. This is as they have no sense of anything being sacred save the remembrance of the Santas. They even reproach other Sunnis for saying peace to the Prophet (saws).

The next portion is the part that Nasibis such as Azam Tariq and Bilal Philips are most fond of citing (they tactically forget the above paragraph). We are quoting from al Bidayah wa al Nihaya Volume 8 page 235:

"the situation reached a point of embarrassment for Yazeed and he said 'Curse be upon Ibn Murjan [Ibn Ziyad] he pained Husayn, made him desperate. Husayn had asked to be allowed to roam freely wherever to see me, or go to the frontier - but Ibn Ziyad rejected this. He [Ibn Ziyad] killed him and has now due to this Muslim shall bear enmity towards me, now every person, good and bad shall bear hatred in their hearts towards me, people shall be shocked at my killing Husayn. I have nothing to do with Murjan's son? May Allah (swt) destroy him and reap destruction upon him'."

Carefully analyse the final comments of Yazeed in this regard:

"now every person, good and bad shall bear hatred in their hearts towards me, people shall be shocked at my killing Husayn."

These words clearly prove that the killing of Imam Husayn (as) was upon the orders of Yazeed, and t his act of cursing Ibn Ziyad was in effect a tactical method to cover up his own culpability. These were crocodile tears shed to display false grief as the Ummah now wanted revenge and were blaming Yazeed. Indeed, the Islamic heartlands of Makka, Madina and Kufa were now in open armed rebellion and Yazeed had lost control there.

Ibn Katheer further commented as follows:

"Verily Yazeed cursed Ibn Ziyad for his actions and spoke ill of him, since the truth had dawned on him, that when the matter came out what would happen to him? But, neither did Yazeed punish Ibn Ziyad for his filthy act, nor did he say anything to him after, neither did he tell people to learn from this lesson, via retelling and condemning the episode". al Bidaya wa al Nihaya Volume 8 page 204

If the argument is Yazeed didn't physically kill Imam Husayn (as) then these Nasibi should know that Pharaoh is deemed the killer of the Israelites even though he only issued the order for boys to be executed though he didn't use the sword himself. Irshad al Sari Volume 10 page 171 Bab ul Fitan states clearly that Yazeed was happy at killing Imam Husayn (as) and his disrespect of the family of Rasulullah (s) is a proven fact.

Let us see the comments of the President of Shari'a Majid 'Ali in Bhar Shariath:

'Those who in this day and age state 'who are we to comment on Yazeed and Husayn and that they were both Princes' are cursed, Hell bound individuals.'

Yazeed's treatment of the Ahl'ul bayt [as]

Yazeed's army looted the camps of the women
of Rasulullah (s)'s household and made
them captives

We read in al Bidayah Volume 8 page 188:

Following the killing of Husayn the tents were set on fire and women and their possession were distributed and scarves were removed from the heads of the women.

Habeeb as Sayyar Volume 2 page 33 also confirms that the tents belonging to the Ahl'ul bayt (as) were set alight.

Iqd al Fareed Volume 2 page 254 states that the women of the household were then imprisoned.

Did Yazeed treat the women from Ahl'ul bayt (as)
with respect and treat them as guests?

Azam Tariq could have us believe that:

Kr-hcy.com states:THEN HE ACCORDED A VERY GRACIOUS HOSPITALITY TO THE REMAINING FAMILY MEMBERS OF HAZRAT HUSAYN AND ARRANGED THEIR RETURN JOURNEY TO MADINAH WITH GREAT HONOUR AND RESPECT.

HAD YAZID GOT ANY INVOLVEMENT IN THE MURDER OF HADHRAT HUSAYN THE REMANANTS OF HIS FAMILY WOULD HAVE NEVER STAYED WITH YAZID AS HIS GUESTS FOR SEVERAL DAYS IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE INCIDENT OF KARBALA. HOW CAN ONE STAY AND DINE WITH THE MURDERERS OF ONE'S BLOOD RELATIONS? ALL THE VILE PROPAGANDA AGAINST YAZID IS A LATTER INNOVATION OF THE SHIAS.

What hospitality! Perhaps we are not up to date with Nasibi etiquettes, but would the reasonable man deem the act of parading of women in ropes before Yazeed, without scarves to be an act of honour and respect. These women did not happily visit Yazeed whilst on holiday, Yazeed's army had slaughtered their men folk and they had entered the court as prisoners not guests. Even inside the court Yazeed showed his hospitality by rowing with Sayyida Zeyneb and argued with her. Is this how guests are respected when they visit friends? See how this nasibi, the biggest one in Pakistan, Azam Tariq, twists basic facts to make it seem like a tea party. He calls prisoners of war 'guests of the khalifa' on the basis of thei having been in his palace. Yes, roped, chained and in the dungeon! The rest about meals with the khalifa is all lies...there is no basis for it in any textual source. In fact these sources all testify to the fact that Yazeed had their hijab torn off them.

Reply Two

The women appeared before Yazeed without purdah and yet 'dear hospitable Yazeed' the prima Donna Santa Claus failed to address this issue. Is this how honour and respected was afforded to the grand daughters of Rasulullah (s)? Ibn Katheer states in al Bidaya Volume 8 page 204 as follows:

"If he [Yazeed] was embarrassed [by the killing of Imam Husayn] then why did he not arrange for the women's purdah when they appeared without any covering? Some supporters of Yazeed state that he respected the women [treated them well] when the reality is, in regards to his treatment of the women of Husayn's household, efforts were made to make Yazeed aware that the grand daughters of Rasulullah (s) were without Purdah, whilst his own Servant women were in Purdah [i.e. he humiliated them further]".

Was Yazeed related to Imam Hussain[as] via marriage?The Nasibi liar says:

Kr-hcy.com states:THIS IS HIGHLY MISLEADING AS IT MAY BE MENTIONED HERE THE CLOSE AFFINITY OF YAZID WITH THE FAMILY OF HADHRAT ALI. IN 53 H WHEN YAZID AS AMIR-UL-HUJJAJ WENT TO MAKKAH AND AFTER HAJ REACHED MADINAH, AT THAT OCCASION HE WAS MARRIED TO SAYYEDA UMM HUHAMMAD, THE DAUGHTER OF ABDULLAH BIN JAFFAR YAHYAR WHO WAS THE SON-IN-LAW OF HADHRAT ALI AND BROTHER-IN-LAW OF HASAN AND HUSAYN.

Our challenge is to this Nasibi to substantiate this claim. Produce us an authentic text, with a complete chain proving this alleged marriage. Also, did Yazeed or any members of the Ahl'ul bayt (as) mention that they were related to Yazeed via marriage? Can Azam Tariq produce even a single source wherein Yazeed had stated that he was the brother in law of Imam Husayn (as)? What is astonishing is the way in which Azam Tariq just makes up historical facts with no textual basis. And he spurts them out with such confidence. This man, who is clearly a pathological liar, is the leader of the Wahabis in Pakistan...it is shocking.

Hadith referring to Yazeed

Abu Hurraira sought protection
from the events of 56 Hijri

Al Bidayah wa al Nihaya Volume 8 page 114

Fathul Bari Volume 13 page 10 Kitab al Fitan

Tareekh al Islam (Dhahabi) Volume 2 page 339 Dhikr Abu Hurraira

Al Isaba Volume 4 page 200 Dhikr Abu Hurraira

Al Bidaya wa al Nihaya Volume 6 page 228

Abu Hurraira would walk through the markets and 'O Allah don't accept the events of 56

Hijri and I don't see this boy's reign'

In Fathul Bari Ibn Hajr states that:

"Abu Hurraira was referring to the youth of Quraysh"

Abu Said al Khudri's condemnation of 60 Hijri

Tafseer Ibn Katheer Volume 3 page 128, Surah Maryam verse 59

Mujmu al Zadaad Volume 6 page 231

Musnad Ibn Hanbal Volume 3 page 38

Fathul Qadeer Volume 3 page 329

Al Bidayah wa al Nihaya Volume 8 page 230

Ibn Kathir states:

"The Sahaba Abu Said al Khudri narrates that he heard Rasulullah (s) say after 60 Hijri undeserving people shall ignore prayers and enter the deepest part of Hell".

This hadith is also a condemnation of Yazeed since he became the Leader immediately after 60 Hijri. (Page 219)

Rasulullah (s) said Yazeed will destroy my religion

We read in al Bidayah Volume 8 page 231 Dhikr Yazeed:

Justice shall rule my Ummah until the first individual who shall destroy my Deen, from the Banu Ummayaa his name shall be Yazeed.

Yes, imam of the Nasibis Yazeed is accused of destroying the Deen by the Holy Prophet (saws) himself. I say we destroy the Deen of the Nasibis. Their Deen is different to that of other Muslims, Shia or Sunni.
