Bismillah Ir Rahman Nir Raheem
i would just like to be a bit nosey :p and ask what are peoples views of Yazid Ibn Muawiyah and also what have scholars of the past said, because people like my uncle says hes a enemy of islam no matter what, and ive always held the view that "am i bovvad :p Allah (swt) will judge"
a view i read when i was flickin through sahih bukhari...
was about Abdullah Ibn Umar (ra) saying "if anyone tries to dethrone Yazid, he is seperate from me, the hadiths is too long to write up lol but its in book number 88 - afflictions and end of the world
and another when off wikipedia
Muhammad ibn Jarir al-Tabari records under the year A.H. 49 (February 9, 669-January 1, 670) during the reign of Muawiya I, a number of forces, including one under Yazid struck at Constantinople. This First Arab siege of Constantinople was a naval assault lasting through the years 670-677. Abu Ayyub al-Ansari was also among the notables accompanying Yazid. This journey marks an important event in the life of young Yazid (27 at that time), as he became one promised paradise according to one Hadith.
They relate that 'Umair bin Al-Aswad Al-Anasi told him that he went to 'Ubada bin As-Samit while he was staying in his house at the sea-shore of Him with (his wife) Um Haram. 'Umair said. Um Haram informed us that she heard Muhammad saying, "Paradise is granted to the first batch of my followers who will undertake a naval expedition." Um Haram added, I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Will I be amongst them?' He replied, 'You are amongst them.' Muhammad then said, 'The first army amongst' my followers who will invade Caesar's City will be forgiven their sins.' I asked, 'Will I be one of them, O Allah's Apostle?' He replied in the negative." Volume 4, Book 52, Number 175 Narrated Khalid bin Madan
Al-Tabari under A.H. 51 (January 18, 671-January 7, 672) states that Yazid was the one who led the pilgrimage that year. There is a disagreement in al-Tabari's sources as to whether Mu'awiyah or Yazid led the pilgrimage in the preceeding year.
this post may seem un beneficial lol, but everyone has their view and its interestin what peoples views are regardin certain thins :D
