Yazid was a bad man. He grew up in a non-Muslim family. His mother was not a Muslim, and her character was not good. Hazrat Muwaviya divorced her, and she brought Yazid with her. She used to tell Yazid that Ali ibn Abi Talib, Ameer Hamza, and the Prophet Muhammad killed and defeated his ancestors on the Battlefield.
Revolt of Ibn al-Zubayr
After the Battle of Karbala, Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr led a revolt against Yazid I. Ibn al-Zubayr did not take part in politics while Muawiyah I was in charge, but when Yazid I became caliph, he refused to swear loyalty to the new ruler. Husayn, his sisters, daughters, sons, brothers, and the sons of Hasan all left Medina together. While Husayn bin Ali was in Mecca, Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr, Abdullah ibn Umar, and Abdullah ibn Abbas told him to make Mecca his base and fight Yazid from there.
In Mecca, a lot of people backed Husayn bin Ali. Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr encouraged Husayn bin Ali not to go to Kufa. Abu Bakr’s grandson, Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr, was Qasim ibn Muhammad ibn Abu Bakr’s cousin. Aisha was the aunt of Abd Allah ibn al-Zubayr and Qasim ibn Muhammad ibn Abu Bakr.
Imam Jafar al-grandfather Sadiq was also named Qasim ibn Muhammad ibn Abu Bakr. Ali, Husayn’s father, had a lot of problems with the people of Kufa and the Kharijites when he lived there. After Husayn ibn Ali died at the Battle of Karbala on October 10, 680 (the 10th of Muharram, 61 AH), Ibn al-Zubayr went back to Mecca, where he called himself the righteous caliph and started gathering support.
Ibn al-Zubair Speech
When Husayn was killed in Karbala, Ibn al-Zubair gathered the people of Makkah and gave the following speech:
“O, people! No one is worse than an Iraqi, and the people of Kufa are the worst of the Iraqis. They wrote letters to them over and over, called on Imam Husayn, and swore allegiance to his caliphate. But when Ibn Zeyad got to Kufa, they gathered around him and killed Imam Husayn, who was religious, fasted, read the Quran, and should have been caliph in every way.”
He finally got his power under control by sending a governor to Kufa. Soon, Ibn al-Zubayr took control of Iraq, southern Arabia, most of Syria, and some parts of Egypt. All of Tihamah and Hejaz said, “Abdullah Ibn Zubayr benefited a lot from the fact that the people were unhappy with Umayyad rule.
” Yazid tried to stop Ibn Zubayr’s rebellion by invading Hejaz and Tihamah, but he died suddenly, ending the campaign. This threw the Umayyads into chaos, and eventually, civil war broke out.
Yazid Attacked The Holy Kaaba
The Omayyad forces of Yazid ibn Mu’awiyah brutally attacked the holy city of Mecca on the third day of the Islamic month of Rabi al-Awwal in 64 AH. Yazid ibn Mu’awiyah then ordered the desecration of the holy Ka’ba by ordering catapults to be placed on mountains overlooking the Masjid al-Haraam or the Grand Sacred Mosque to fire and
The ultimate emblem of monotheism was severely damaged as a result, and many people who had sought safety in the most sacred place of Islam were killed or severely burned. The populace fiercely defended the city after being encouraged by Mukhtar ibn Abu Obayda Saqafi’s bravery.
Death and Succession of Yazid
Two versions of Yazid’s demise have been documented by historians. One is that he developed stomach and intestinal disease. He would experience constant pain and be unable to eat or drink. He would emit a foul odor. Due to the offensive odor, no one would dare to stand next to him. He used to drink water, but it simply made the discomfort worse. He used to drink to numb the hurt. Where was his monkey, he inquired one day.
They stated that it had left the building. To find his monkey, Yazid mounted a horse. He was in too much discomfort to sit properly. The rider’s foot became stuck as the horse raced, and he crashed to the ground. While the horse continued to run, his head kept crashing to the ground.
He was then placed in the middle of a desert. Before soldiers discovered his decaying remains, birds and insects had already begun to eat them. Yazeed’s romance with a Roman girl is the other incident. He was invited to a desert oasis by her. She used the blade to assassinate Yazid there when he arrived. He was left to die on his own. Soldiers located his body a few days later.
Second Account Of Yazid Bin Muwaviya
Most of the dead bodies were consumed by insects and birds. That is the second account of Yazid bin Muwaviya’s demise that can be found in the history book. When Yazid passed away, the throne was presented to Muwaviya bin Yazid.
He was a young man. He declined the position of the caliph and declared that he would not accept any throne erected on Ahle Bayt’s blood and remains. Muwaviya bin Yazid passed away a few months later as well. He is respected by all Islamic faiths, yet they all denounce his father’s behavior. To maintain his throne and pass it on to his son, Yazid sacrificed Hazrat Hussain and Ahle Bayt. To his distress, his son turned down the throne. Marwan bin Hakam and his lineage ruled Muslims after seizing the crown.
