Yazid (May Allah give him what he deserves)








Yazid(LA)
-
Yazid Laanati

"Imam" of the Wahabi/Salafis
(May Allah give him and his followers what they deserve)


The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia

as he came on the Majd TV in a Q & A session, stating very clearly "verbatum":
The Bay'at of yazid is Shar'iah (legtimate/righteous), and Husain went against the Shariah by going against the Khalifah.
Yazid's father took Bay'at for Yazid before he died, and this is binding to all Muslims, and therefore anyone who goes against him (yazid), is subject to .....
Husayn was wrong, went against people who advised him not to go.

Note: Mufti is asking: " for forgiveness" for Imam Husayn, because  Husayn sinned by going against the Khalifah of his time.”

The Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) himself states clearly:
The curse of Allah on those who scare the people of Madina.

It is definitively narrated without a shred of doubt that Yazid bin Muawiyah ransacked Madina Munawwara, killed people there, destroyed homes, etc.. all under his very direct and explicit command.

Abdullah bin Abbas narrates that



The Holy Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم said,

“I am the scale of knowledge, Ali is its pans, Hasan and Husain are it s ropes, Fatimah is its handle and the leaders (of the ahl-ul-bait) after me are its rods. The deeds of those who love us or have hatred against us will be weighed on this scale.”

It is reported by Imam Muslim and Imam Tirmizi,
That the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said:
"I m leaving among you something which is very important and should be followed, you will not go astray if you get hold of it after I am gone, one part of it being more important than the other: Allah's Book, which is a rope stretched from Heaven to Earth, and my close relatives, who belong to my household. These two will not separate from one another till they come down to the reservoir, so consider how you act regarding them after my departure." (Tirmidhi, Sahih Muslim)

QUOTE:
Dr. Zakir Nalayik calling himself as Ahle Sunnah Wal Jama'a even though he belongs to Wahabi Salafi/Ahle Hadith Sect says:
Quote:
“In spite of the difference of opinion it is agreed upon that it is permissible to say “May Allah have mercy on him” or “May Allah be pleased with him” for Yazeed. Therefore saying “May Allah be pleased with him” after Yazeed’s name is not Haraam, nor a sin and is not wrong.”

It has been noticed that some people in their indirect or even direct hatred for Ahlul Bayt (Family of Prophet - Peace be upon him) try to cover the acts of Yazid and in this process they try to paint him into a great personality. With the Grace of Allah we shall see how this traitor to Islam (i.e. Yazid) got Imam Hussain (Radhi Allahu Anhu) martyred and how he ransacked Madina al-Munawwara and committed heinous crimes therein
Firstly we would like to present this beautiful sahih hadith of Prophet (Salallaho alaihi wasalam) regarding people who “Ransack” our beloved sanctuary called Madina al Munawara.

Imam Ahmed narrates this report from Sa’ib bin Khalad (RA) that the Prophet of Allah (Peace be upon him) said: Whosoever spreads injustice and frightened the people of Madina, then Curse (Lanah) of Allah, his Angels and all the people is upon such a person.


[Musnad Ahmed bin Hanbal as narrated by Imam Ibn Kathir in Al Bidayah Wal Nihayah Vol 8 Page No. 274]

Quran states: Those who annoy Allah and His Messenger, Allah has cursed them in this World and in the Hereafter and has prepared for them a humiliating Punishment (33:57)

What could be a bigger annoyance to the Prophet than getting his grandson brutally martyred and ransacking the place which he had declared as Harram (i.e. Sacred)


1. The heinous crimes of Yazid

Imam Ibn Kathir (rah) says in his magnificent work of Tarikh under events of 63 AH
فقال ابن الزبير يا هؤلاء قتل أصحابكم فانا لله وإنا إليه راجعون
وقد أخطأ يزيد خطأ فاحشا فى قوله لمسلم بن عقبة أن يبيح المدينة ثلاثة أيام وهذا خطأ كبير فاحش مع ما انضم إلى ذلك من قتل خلق من الصحابة وأبنائهم وقد تقدم أنه قتل الحسين وأصحابه على يدى عبيد الله بن زياد وقد وقع فى هذه الثلاثة أيام من المفاسد العظيمة فى المدينة النبوية مالا يحد ولا يوصف مما لا يعلمه إلا الله عز وجل وقد أراد بارسال مسلم بن عقبة توطيد سلطانه وملكه ودوام أيامه من غير منازع فعاقبه الله بنقيض قصده وحال بينه وبين ما يشتهيه فقصمه الله قاصم الجبابرة وأخذه أخذ عزيز مقتدر وكذلك أخذ ربك إذا أخذ القرى وهى ظالمة إن أخذه أليم شديد

Translation:
Ibn Zubayr (Radhi Allaho Anho) said: O PEOPLE YOUR COMPANIONS HAVE BEEN KILLED – Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Rajiun

"Yazeed committed a mistake and that too a disgusting one by ordering Muslim bin Uqba to make Madina "mubah" for three days. This was his biggest and ugliest blunder. Many Sahaba and their children were slaughtered. As it has been mentioned before that Yazid made UbaydUllah Ibn Ziyad kill the grandson of Rasulullah (saw) Husayn and his companions, and in those three days huge heinous crimes happened in Madina about which nobody knows except Allah. Yazeed wanted to secure his governance by sending Muslim bin Uqbah but Allah did against his wishes and punished him. Verily Allah killed him likewise Allah made grip over the oppressing towns, no doubt His grip is painful and strict".[Al Bidayah Wal Nihayah, Vol 8 Page 283]


2. Even Ibn Ziyad got outraged by Yazid

Yazid’s crimes were so heinous that even his loyal Ubaid Ullah Ibn Ziyad (whom he had sent to murder Muslim bin Aqeel and later Imam Hussain ra too) said:
كان يزيد كتب إلى عبد الله بن زياد أن يسير إلى الزبير فيحاصره بمكة فأبى عليه وقال والله لا أجمعهما للفاسق أبدا أقتل ابن بنت رسول الله ص وأغزو البيت الحرام وقد كانت أمه مرجانة قالت له حين قتل الحسين ويحك ماذا صنعت وماذا ركبت وعنفته تعنيفا شديدا قالوا وقد بلغ يزيد أن ابن الزبير يقول فى خطبته يزيد القرود شارب الخمور تارك الصلوات منعكف على القينات

Translation:
When Yazid wrote to Ibn Ziyad that he should go to Makkah and besiege Abdullah Ibn Zubayr (RA) he refused to do so and said: By Allah I will not combine two things for a Fasiq (i.e. Yazid). I have already killed the son of Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam)’s daughter (on his order) and now (he asks me to) wage war on Bayt ul Harram? However when he martyred Imam Hussain (RA) his mother Marjana said to him: May you die! what have you done and what crime have you committed, she also scolded him severely. Yazid was informed that Abdullah Ibn Zubayr (RA) used to say in his speeches that Yazid was a fraud, drunkard, one who abandons Salaat and one who stays with singing women. [Al-Bidayah Wal Nihayah, Volume 8, Page No 279]

Imam Ibn Kathir (rah) further narrates:
ثم أباح مسلم بن عقبة الذى يقول فيه السلف مسرف بن عقبة قبحه الله من شيخ سوء ما أجهله المدينة ثلاثة أيام كما أمره يزيد لا جزاه الله خيرا وقتل خيرا خلقا من أشرافها وقرائها وانتهب أموالا كثيرة منها ووقع شر وفساد عريض على ما ذكره غير واحد فكان ممن قتل بين يديه صبرا معقل بن سنان وقد كان صديقه قبل ذلك ولكن أسمعه فى يزيد كلاما غليظا فنقم عليه بسببه


Translation:
And he Muslim bin Uqba who is known as As-Salf Musraf bin Uqba, May Allah not do well to this leader of evil and ignorance, he made Madina legal for 3 days on the order of Yazid. May Allah also not grant Jaza and khayr to him(i.e. Yazid), he got many righteous killed and also looted the amwaal in Madina in great numbers, this has been multiply narrated that he created a lot of Shar and Fasad. It is mentioned that Hadrat Muafl bin Sanan (RA) was tied infront (of Ibn Uqba) and then martyred, you were his friend before but later you used strong words against Yazid due to which he became angry at you. [Al-Bidayah Wal Nihayah, Volume 8, Page No 280]

3. Yazeed’s aggression against the leading Tabi’i called Sa'eed Ibn Musaib (rah)
قال المدائنى وجىء إلى مسلم بسعيد بن المسيب فقال له بايع فقال أبايع على سيرة أبى بكر وعمر فأمر بضرب عنقه فشهد رجل إنه مجنون فخلى سبيله

Translation
: Al Mudaini (rah) said: Sa’eed Ibn Musaib (rah) was brought to Muslim (bin uqba), He asked him to give bayah. (Sa’eed ibn Musab) said: I will give bayah on seerah of Sayyidna Abu Bakr and Sayyidna Umar (RA). (Muslim) ordered to get him killed but a man said This person (i.e. Sa’eed ibn Musaib) is a mad man (in order to save him), at this he was left alone. [Al Bidayah Wal Nihayah, Volume 8, Page No 281]
4. Shaykh ul Islam Ibn Hajr al-Asqalani (rah)
Imam Ibn Hajr (rah) made the whole title in his book al-Imta bil al-Arb'ain as "SENDING LANAH ON YAZID (لعن يزيد)"
وأما المحبة فيه والرفع من شأنه فلا تقع إلا من مبتدع فاسد الاعتقاد فإنه كان فيه من الصفات ما يقتضي سلب الإيمان عمن يحبه لأن الحب في الله والبغض في الله من الإيمان والله المستعان

Translation: Loving and glorifying him (Yazid) is not done “EXCEPT BY A HERETIC” who has void belief because he (Yazid) had such characteristics that his lover deserves to be faithless, because to love and hate just for the sake of God is a sign of faith. [Publisher's name: Dar ul Kutb al iLmiyyah, Beirut, Lebanon, Book name: al-Imta bil al-Arba'in al-Matbainatus Samah (
الإمتاع بالأربعين المتباينة السماع), Author: Imam Ibn Hajr al Asqalani (rah), Publication date: 1997, Page No. 96]
5. Imam Jalal ud din Suyuti (rah) in Tarikh ul Khulafa

He states: You (Imam Hussain - Radhi Allaho Anho) were martyred and your head was brought to Ibn Ziyad on a plate. "May Allah's Lanah (Curse) be upon the person who killed you, also Ibn Ziyad "AND UPON YAZID" [As-Suyuti in Tarikh ul Khulafa, Page No. 165]

Imam Jalal ud-din Suyuti (rah) writes: Nawfl bin Abi Firaat (rah) said that once he was sitting with Caliph Umar bin Abdul Aziz (rah) when a man called Yazid as "Ameer ul Momineen Yazid bin Muawiya" at this (Umar bin Abdul Aziz said in anger): you call this person as Ameer ul Momineen?! and then he ordered that person to be "lashed 20 times" in 63 AH Yazid got to know that people of Madina have rejected him and are preparing to wage war upon him, knowing this Yazid sent a huge army to Madina and "declared war upon people of Madina" after looting in Madina he sent the army to martyr Hadrat Abdullah bin Zubayr (ra) in Makkah and so the incident of "HURRA" took place, do you know what Hurra is? regarding it Hassan (a Tabi'i) said: When Madina was attacked, there remained not a single person who was safe from it, "huge amount of Sahaba and others were martyred and Madina was looted and thousands of virgin girls were raped" Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Rajiun... The Prophet (Peace be upon him) said: Whosoever frightens People of Madina then Allah will frighten them (the attackers) plus Curse (Lanah) of Allah, his Angels and all the people is upon such a person (Sahih Muslim) the reason why people of Madina did not give bayah to Yazid was because he was indulged in “too many sins” Imam Waqidi (rah) narrates from Abdullah Bin Khazlatal Ghusail (a Sahabi) that he said: By Allah we did not revolt against Yazid until we were sure that “WE WILL BE SHOWERED WITH STONES FROM SKY” (the Yazidans) started to do Nikah with their mothers, sisters and daughters, they started to drink openly and neglected prayers! Imam Dhahabi (rah) said: When Yazid did such things with people of Madina although “ he was indulged in drinking and other evil deeds even before” then the people of Makkah also revolted against him and rose against him from 4 sides and then Allah did not put Barakah in life of Yazid (Then it mentions that Yazid attacked Makkah and got the Abdullah Ibn Zubayr Martyred)

6. Allama Aloosi (Rahimuhullah) writes under 47:22-23 in his magnificent Ruh ul Ma’ani
واستدل بها أيضاً على جواز لعن يزيد عليه من الله تعالى ما يستحق. نقل البرزنجي في «الإشاعة» والهيتمي في «الصواعق» أن الإمام أحمد لما سأله ولده عبد الله عن لعن يزيد قال كيف لا يلعن من لعنه الله تعالى في كتابه؟ فقال عبد الله قد قرأت كتاب الله عز وجل فلم أجد فيه لعن يزيد فقال الإمام إن الله تعالى يقول:
{
فَهَلْ عَسَيْتُمْ إِن تَوَلَّيْتُمْ أَن تُفْسِدُواْ فِي ٱلأَرْضِ وَتُقَطّعُواْ أَرْحَامَكُمْ * أَوْلَـئِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَعَنَهُمُ ٱللَّهُ }
[
محمد: 22] الآية وأي فساد وقطيعة أشد مما فعله يزيد؟

Translation:The Proof of sending Lanah upon Yazid is derived from this (ayah),
as was mentioned by Al-Barzanji (rah) in his Al-Ashaat and Imam al-Haythami (rah) in As-Sawaiq from Imam Ahmed (rah) that his son Abdullah asked him about sending Lanah on Yazid, (Imam Ahmed) said: Why cannot Lanah be sent on him when Allah has sent Lanah on him in Quran, Abdullah (rah) asked: Recite the Kitab of Allah so that I know how Lanah is sent on Yazid? Imam Ahmed (rah) mentioned these verses: Would ye then, if ye were given the command, work corruption in the land and sever your ties of kinship? Such are the men whom Allah has cursed…(47:22-23) Hence what could be a bigger Strife than what Yazid did?[ [Ruh ul Ma’ani by Imam Al-Alusi, Volume 9 Under Surah Muhammad 22-23]
2) Allama Alusi said: And I say what is prevalent over my mind that (Yazid) Khabith did not testify to the messengership of the Holy Prophet (Peace Be Upon Him). According to me it is correct to curse a person like Yazid, although one cannot imagine a Fasiq like him and apparently he never repented, the possibility of his repentance is weaker than the possibility of his faith (Iman). Along with Yazid, Ibn Ziyad, Ibn Sa'ad and his group shall also be included. Verily, may Allah's curse be upon all of them, their friends, their supporters, their group and upon everyone who inclines towards them until Qayamah and until an eye sheds a tear for Abu Abdullah Hussain (ra).

7. Imam Dhahabi (rah) writes about Yazid
وكان ناصبيا فظا غليظا جلفا يتناول المسكر ويفعل المنكر افتتح دولته بمقتل الشهيد الحسين واختتمها بواقعة الحرة فمقته الناس ولم يبارك في عمره وخرج عليه غير واحد بعد الحسين كأهل المدينة قاموا لله

Translation: He (Yazid) was a disgusting Nasibi (i.e. those who hate Ahlul bayt). He drank and did evil. He started his kingdom with the killing of the Shahid al-Hussain (RA) and ended it with the incident of al-Harra (i.e. besiegement of Madina which also makes him directly liable for Lanah as sahih ahadith prove). Hence the people hated him, he was not blessed in his life, and many took up arms against him after Imam Hussain (RA) such as the people of Madina - they rose for the sake of Allah[As Siyar al Alam an Nabula, Volume No. 4, Page No. 37-38]

2) Imam Dhahabi writes: I say: 'When Yazid did to the people of Madina what he did and killed al-Hussain and his brothers and progeny, and Yazid drank alcohol, and performed abominable things, then the people hated him and rose up against him more than once. God didn't bless his life and Abu Bilal Mirdas bin Adya al-Hanzali rose against him.' [Tarikh al-Islam: wa-tabaqat al-mashahir wa-al-a`lam, Volume 005, Page No. 30]

3) Imam Dhahabi Writes: Ziyad Haarthi narrated: 'Yazid gave me alcohol to drink, I had never drunk alcohol like that before and I enquired where he had obtained its ingredients from'. Yazid replied: 'it is made of sweet pomegranate, Isfahan's honey, Hawaz's sugar, Taif's grapes and Burdah's water'. Ahmed bin Masama' narrated: 'Once Yazid drank alcohol and started to dance, suddenly he fell down and his nostril began to bleed'. [Siyar al A'lam wa al Nubalah, Volume 004, Page No. 037]

8. Qadhi ThanaUllah Panipati (rah) on Yazid

Another great Mufasir and author of great books, a scholar accepted by all Sunni Muslims i.e. Qadhi Thana Ullah Panipatti (rah) quoted Quranic ayah 14:28 and writes:

Quran states: Hast thou not seen those who gave the grace of Allah in exchange for thanklessness and led their people down to the Abode of Loss (14:28)

Tafsir: Bani Ummaiya had always rejoiced upon Kufr, however Abu Sufyan, Ameer Mu’awiya (RA) and Umaro bin Aas(RA) and others became Muslims. Later Yazid and his companions rejected the blessings of Allah and rose the flag of enmity towards Ahlul Bayt and finally brutally martyred Imam Hussain (RA) to the extent that Yazid even denied the Deen of Muhammad (salallaho alaihi wasalam). He after martyrdom of Imam Hussain(RA) said: Had my predecessors lived they would have seen how I took revenge from the family of Prophet (saw) and Bani Hashim, The couplet which Yazid made had this in the end: I will avenge Ahmed (i.e. Prophet Salallaho alaihi wasalam) for whatever he did with my predecessors in Badr (Naudhobillah). Yazid even declared alcohol as permissible and in praise of it he said: If liquor is Haram in the Deen of Muhammad (salallaho alaihi wasalam) then take it to be permissible according to the deen of Isa Ibn Marym (a.s). [Tafsir al Mazhari Volume 5, Pages 211-212]

9. Ibn Kathir's comments on Yazeed
Ibn Kathir himself writes in al Bidayah Volume 8 page 1169 "Dhikr Yazeed bin Muawiyah":

"Traditions inform us that Yazeed loved worldly vices, would drink, listen to music, kept the company of boys with no facial hair [civil expression for paedophilia with boys, a form of homosexuality], played drums, kept dogs [civil expression for bestiality], making frogs, bears and monkeys fight. Every morning he used be intoxicated and use to bind monkey with the saddle of a horse and make the horse run".

Reference:Al Bidayah Wal Nihayah, Vol 8 Page 1169

10. Ibn Atheer's comments on Yazeed
In Tareekh al Kamil Volume 3 page 450 Ibn Atheer narrates from Munzir bin Zabeer:

"Verily Yazeed rewarded me with 100,000 dirhams but this cannot stop me from highlighting his state, By Allah he is a drunkard"

11. Ibn Jauzi's comments on Yazeed 'the drunkard'


Ibn Jauzi in Wafa al-Wafa:

"Yazeed appointed his cousin Uthman bin Muhammad bin Abu Sufyan as Governor of Madina. He sent a delegation to visit Yazeed who bore gifts so that they might take the oath of allegiance to him. Upon their return they said 'We have returned having visited a man who has no religion, he drinks, plays instruments, keeps the company of singers and dogs [civil word for bestiality], we declare that we have broken our allegiance to him. Abdullah bin Abi Umro bin Hafs Mukhzumee commented 'Yazeed gave me gifts. But the reality is this man is an enemy of Allah (swt) and a drunkard. I shall separate myself from him in the same way that I remove my turban [from my head]."

12. Punturing the devil's dream on Hadith of Qustuntunia


.."He heard the Prophet saying, 'Paradise is granted to the first batch of my followers who will undertake a naval expedition.' The Prophet then said, 'The first army amongst my followers who will invade Caesar's City will be forgiven their sins.'" (Sahih Bukhari volume 4 hadith 175)
Firstly Yazid was not in the first army to wage war on ceaser's city as
Sahih hadith in Sunnan Abu Dawud states
عن أسلم أبي عمران قال : غزونا من المدينة نريد القسطنطينية وعلى الجماعة عبد الرحمن بن خالد بن الوليد

Translation: Aslam Abi Imran (ra) said: We went out on an expedition from Madina with the intent to attack Constantinople. Abd al-Rahman bin Khalid bin Walid was the leader of our group. [Sunnan Abu Dawud, Volume No. 2 Hadith # 2512, Albani declared it Sahih in his Takhrij]
Imam At-Tabri says in his Tarikh
فمما كان فيها من ذلك دخول المسلمين مع عبد الرحمن بن خالد بن الوليد بلاد الروم ومشتاهم بها وغزو

Translation: In (44 AH) The Muslims with Abdur Rahman bin Khalid bin Walid entered Rome and the Ghazwa took place [Tarikh at-Tabri under events of 44 AH, Volume 005, Page No. 212: Published by Cairo: Dar al-Ma'arif] Click here for Scanned Page (
83)
Whereas Yazid went way later i.e. in 49 or 50 AH. Even later yazid was sent as a punishement and he mocked at Muslims warriors who had gone before
Imam Ibn Al-Atheer (rah) writes:
في هذه السنة وقيل ‏:‏ سنة خمسين سير معاوية جيشًا كثيفًا إلى بلاد الروم للغزاة ، وجعل عليهم سفيان بن عوف ، وأَمَرَ ابنه يزيد بالغزاة معهم فتثاقل واعتلّ فأمسك عنه أبوه ، فأصاب الناس في غزاتهم جوعٌ ومرض شديد ، فأنشأ يزيد يقول ‏:‏
ما إن أبالي بما لاقت جموعهم *** بالفرقدونة من حمى ومن موم
إذا اتكأت على الأنماط مرتفقًا *** بدير مروان عندي أم كلثومِ
فبلغ معاوية شعره، فأقسم عليه ليلحقنّ بسفيان في أرض الروم، ليصيبه ما أصاب الناس، فسار ومعه جمع كثير أضافهم إليه أبوه
Translation: In this year i.e. 49 AH or 50 AH, Muawiya (ra) sent a huge army towards Rome. He made Sufyan bin Awf (ra) as its commander and he ordered his son Yazid to go with them, however Yazid “ACTED TO HAVE BECOME SICK AND DENIED TO GO” When the warriors were struck with harsh hunger and diseases, Yazid (mockingly) said this poetry:

At Farqudwana immense wrath covered them, whether they had fever or whatever I don’t care because I am sitting on a high carpet and Umm ul Kulthum (one of his wives) is between my armpits.

When Ameer Muawiya (ra) heard these phrases he made Yazid to take an oath and join Sufyan bin Awf in Rome so that “HE COULD ALSO BE STRUCK BY THESE SAME DIFFICULTIES AS THE WARRIORS OF ISLAM HAD FACED (THIS WAS PUNISHEMENT TO YAZID)” Yazid became helpless and he had to go and Ameer Muawiya (ra) sent another army with him [Tarikh Ibn al Atheer, Volume No.3, Page No. 131]
Imam Badr ud-din Ayni (rah) said:
قلت: الأظهر أن هؤلاء السادات من الصحابة كانوا مع سفيان هذا ولم يكونوا مع يزيد بن معاوية، لأنه لم يكن أهلاً أن يكون هؤلاء السادات في خدمته

Translation: I say that it is obvious that the great amount of sahaba went under the leadership of Sufyan bin Awf (ra) and “NOT WITH YAZID BIN MUAWIYA BECAUSE HE WAS NOT DESERVING OF LEADING THEM” [Umdat ul Qari, Sharh Sahih ul Bukhari 14/197-198]
Summary details about the armed expeditions: First attack on Caesar's city was in 42 hijri. Second attack was in 43 and "Hazrat Bosr ben ABI Arka was the leader of this army. Third attack was in 44H and this was led by Abdurehman ben Khalid ben Waleed. The next attack was in 46 hijri which was led by Maalik ben Abdurehman and Abdurehman ben Khalid ben Waleed. In 47H, next attack was led by Maalik ben Hobaira and Abdurehman ben Qaiymi. In 49 hijri the rome was attacked for 3 times. And Lastly yazid was in attack of 50 hijri.

Hazrat Amir Mawiya (RA) arrested Yazeed and sent him to ceasar because Yazeed was used to make fun of Mujahideen and as a punishment Yazeed was sent there not for Jihad

So Yazeed was in the seventh(or eight) attack, not in the first attack and in Bukhari Shareef it is mentioned that 'The first army amongst' my followers who will invade Caesar's City will be forgiven their sins.'

"Allamah Alusi stated, Yazeed the impure denied the Prophethood of Rasulullah (s). The treatment that he meted out to the people of Makka, Medina and the family of the Prophet proves that he was a kaafir".

Once in the gathering of Amir Ul Mominein Hazrat Ummar Bin Abdul Aziz [R.A] people talked about yazeed, someone among the people said ( Amir Ul Mominein to Yazeed ) Hazrat Ummar Bin Abdul Aziz [R.A] replied in anger,'' you call Yazeed ( Bad Character Person ) as Amir Ul Mominein?. Than Hazrat Ummar Bin Abdul Aziz [R.A] gave order of 20 lashes to the person who called Yazeed Amir Ul Mominein [ Tahdheeb Al'Tahdheeb Vol 1 Page 361]


15. The Proof of Sending Curses
(Lanat) on Yazid!
Translation:The Proof of sending Lanah upon Yazid is derived from this (ayah), as was mentioned by Al-Barzanji (rah) in his Al-Ashaat and Imam Haythami (rah) in As-Sawaiq from Imam Ahmed (rah) that his son Abdullah asked him about sending Lanah on Yazid, and how sending Lanah upon him is mentioned in the book of Allah (i.e. Quran).
Imam Ahmed (rah) in proof of (sending Lanah upon Yazid) mentioned these verses:
Would ye then, if ye were given the command, work corruption in the land and sever your ties of kinship?
Such are the men whom Allah has cursed…(47:22-23), So could there be a greater fitnah than the actions committed by Yazid?
[Ruh ul Ma’ani by Imam Al-Alusi, Volume 9 Under Surah Muhammad 22-23]

Imam Ghazzali (rah)


We often come across people citing Imam Ghazzali (rah) in favour of Yazid as If he is the absolute criterion over this issue, the same people consider Imam Ghazzali to be a misguided Sufi who believed in Tawassul and Istighatha (i.e. besseching anbiya awliya for help)


so why this double standard?


The answer is Imam Ghazzali (rah) has simply erred in this regard because history did not reach him properly, this would not apply today because history has clearly reached us today and we are clear about murderer of Imam Hussain (ra) who ordered it, who led the army against him etc…

Before citing overwhelming proofs from Tarikh, I would like to present this beautiful sahih hadith of Prophet (Salallaho alaihi wasalam) regarding people who “Ransack” our beloved sanctuarary called Madina al Munawara.

Imam Ahmed narrated from Sa’ib bin Khalad (RA) that The Prophet of Allah (Peace be upon him) said:

Whosoever spreads injustice and frightened the people of Madina, then Curse (Lanah) of Allah, his Angels and all the people is upon such a person.

[Musnad Ahmed bin Hanbal as narrated by Imam Ibn Kathir in Al Bidayah Wal Nihayah Vol 8 Page No. 274]

Imam Ibn Kathir (rah) then says in his magnificent work of Tarikh under events of 63 AH

فقال ابن الزبير يا هؤلاء قتل أصحابكم فانا لله وإنا إليه راجعون
وقد أخطأ يزيد خطأ فاحشا فى قوله لمسلم بن عقبة أن يبيح المدينة ثلاثة أيام وهذا خطأ كبير فاحش مع ما انضم إلى ذلك من قتل خلق من الصحابة وأبنائهم وقد تقدم أنه قتل الحسين وأصحابه على يدى عبيد الله بن زياد وقد وقع فى هذه الثلاثة أيام من المفاسد العظيمة فى المدينة النبوية مالا يحد ولا يوصف مما لا يعلمه إلا الله عز وجل وقد أراد بارسال مسلم بن عقبة توطيد سلطانه وملكه ودوام أيامه من غير منازع فعاقبه الله بنقيض قصده وحال بينه وبين ما يشتهيه فقصمه الله قاصم الجبابرة وأخذه أخذ عزيز مقتدر وكذلك أخذ ربك إذا أخذ القرى وهى ظالمة إن أخذه أليم شديد

Translation: Hadrat Ibn Zubayr (Radhi Allaho Anho) said: O PEOPLE YOUR COMPANIONS HAVE BEEN KILLED – Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilaihi Rajiun

"Yazeed committed a mistake and that too a disgusting one by ordering Muslim bin Uqba to make Medina Mubah for three days. This was the biggest blunder. Many Sahaba and their children were slaughtered. As it has been mentioned before that Yazid made UbaydUllah Ibn Ziyad kill the grandson of Rasulullah (saw) Husayn and his companions, and in those three days huge heinous crimes happened in Madina about which nobody knows except Allah. Yazeed wanted to secure his governance by sending Muslim bin Uqbah but Allah did against his wishes and punished him. Verily Allah killed him likewise Allah made grip over the oppressing towns, no doubt His grip is painful and strict"[Al Bidayah Wal Nihayah, Vol 8 Page 283]
Even Ibn Ziyad testified against Yazid!
Yazid’s crimes were so heinous that even his loyal Ubaid Ullah Ibn Ziyad (whom he had sent to murder Muslim bin Aqeel and later Imam Hussain ra too) said:

كان يزيد كتب إلى عبد الله بن زياد أن يسير إلى الزبير فيحاصره بمكة فأبى عليه وقال والله لا أجمعهما للفاسق أبدا أقتل ابن بنت رسول الله ص وأغزو البيت الحرام وقد كانت أمه مرجانة قالت له حين قتل الحسين ويحك ماذا صنعت وماذا ركبت وعنفته تعنيفا شديدا قالوا وقد بلغ يزيد أن ابن الزبير يقول فى خطبته يزيد القرود شارب الخمور تارك الصلوات منعكف على القينات

Translation:When Yazid wrote to Abdullah Ibn Ziyad that he should go to Makkah and besiege Abdullah Ibn Zubayr (RA) he refused to do so and said: By Allah I will not combine two things for a Fasiq (i.e. Yazid). I have already killed the son of Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam)’s daughter (on his order) and now (he asks me to) wage war on Bayt ul Harram? However when he martyred Imam Hussain (RA) his mom Marjana said to him: May you die! what have you done and what crime have you committed, she also scolded him severely. Yazid was informed that Abdullah Ibn Zubayr (RA) used to say in his speeches that Yazid was a fraud, drunkard, one who abandons Salaat and one who stays with singing women. [Al-Bidayah Wal Nihayah, Volume 8, Page No 279]

He further said:
ثم أباح مسلم بن عقبة الذى يقول فيه السلف مسرف بن عقبة قبحه الله من شيخ سوء ما أجهله المدينة ثلاثة أيام كما أمره يزيد لا جزاه الله خيرا وقتل خيرا خلقا من أشرافها وقرائها وانتهب أموالا كثيرة منها ووقع شر وفساد عريض على ما ذكره غير واحد فكان ممن قتل بين يديه صبرا معقل بن سنان وقد كان صديقه قبل ذلك ولكن أسمعه فى يزيد كلاما غليظا فنقم عليه بسببه

Continued… (Translation)
Opression upon Sahaba and greatest Tabiyeen

Translation: And he Muslim bin Uqba who is known as As-Salf Musraf bin Uqba, May Allah not do well to this leader of evil and ignorance, he made Madina legal for 3 days on the order of Yazid. May Allah also not grant Jaza and khayr to him(i.e. Yazid), he got many righteous killed and also looted the amwaal in Madina in great numbers, this has been multiply narrated that he created a lot of Shar and Fasad. It is mentioned that Hadrat Muafl bin Sanan (RA) was tied infront (of Ibn Uqba) and then martyred, you were his friend before but later you used strong words against Yazid due to which he became angry at you. [Al-Bidayah Wal Nihayah, Volume 8, Page No 280]

Yazeed’s aggression against the leading Tabi’i i.e. Saeed Ibn Musaib (ra)
قال المدائنى وجىء إلى مسلم بسعيد بن المسيب فقال له بايع فقال أبايع على سيرة أبى بكر وعمر فأمر بضرب عنقه فشهد رجل إنه مجنون فخلى سبيله

Translation:Al Mudaini (rah) said: Sa’eed Ibn Musaib (rah) was brought to Muslim (bin uqba), He asked him to give bayah. (Sa’eed ibn Musab) said: I will give bayah on seerah of Sayyidna Abu Bakr and Sayyidna Umar (RA). (Muslim) ordered to get him killed but a man said This person (i.e. Sa’eed ibn Musaib) is a mad man (i.e. to save him), at this he was left alone. [Al Bidayah Wal Nihayah, Volume 8, Page No 281]

Qadhi ThanaUllah Panipati (rah) on Yazid!

Another great Mufasir and author of great books, a scholar accepted by all Sunni Muslims i.e. Qadhi Thana Ullah Panipatti (rah) quoted Quran ayah 14:28 and writes:

Quran states: Hast thou not seen those who gave the grace of Allah in exchange for thanklessness and led their people down to the Abode of Loss (14:28)

Tafsir: Bani Ummaiya had always rejoiced upon Kufr, however Abu Sufyan, Ameer Mu’awiya (RA) and Umaro bin Aas(RA) and others became Muslims. Later Yazid and his companions rejected the blessings of Allah and rose the flag of enmity towards Ahlul Bayt and finally brutally martyred Imam Hussain (RA) to the extent that Yazid even denied the Deen of Muhammad (salallaho alaihi wasalam). He after martyrdom of Imam Hussain(RA) said: Had my predecessors lived they would have seen how I took revenge from the family of Prophet (saw) and Bani Hashim, The couplet which Yazid made had this in the end: I will avenge Ahmed (i.e. Prophet Salallaho alaihi wasalam) for whatever he did with my predecessors in Badr (Naudhobillah). Yazid even declared alcohol as permissible and in praise of it he said: If liquor is Haram in the Deen of Muhammad (salallaho alaihi wasalam) then take it to be permissible according to the deen of Isa Ibn Marym (a.s). [Tafsir al Mazhari Volume 5, Pages 211-212]

**Allama Aloosi (Rahimuhullah) writes under 47:22-23 in his magnificent Ruh ul Ma’ani
واستدل بها أيضاً على جواز لعن يزيد عليه من الله تعالى ما يستحق. نقل البرزنجي في «الإشاعة» والهيتمي في «الصواعق» أن الإمام أحمد لما سأله ولده عبد الله عن لعن يزيد قال كيف لا يلعن من لعنه الله تعالى في كتابه؟ فقال عبد الله قد قرأت كتاب الله عز وجل فلم أجد فيه لعن يزيد فقال الإمام إن الله تعالى يقول:
{
فَهَلْ عَسَيْتُمْ إِن تَوَلَّيْتُمْ أَن تُفْسِدُواْ فِي ٱلأَرْضِ وَتُقَطّعُواْ أَرْحَامَكُمْ * أَوْلَـئِكَ ٱلَّذِينَ لَعَنَهُمُ ٱللَّهُ }
[
محمد: 22] الآية وأي فساد وقطيعة أشد مما فعله يزيد؟

Allama Alusi (rah) and Imam Dhahabi (rah) on Yazid

Translation:The Proof of sending Lanah upon Yazid is derived from this (ayah), as was mentioned by Al-Barzanji (rah) in his Al-Ashaat and Imam Haythami (rah) in As-Sawaiq from Imam Ahmed (rah) that his son Abdullah asked him about sending Lanah on Yazid,(Imam Ahmed) said: Why cannot Lanah be sent on him when Allah has sent Lanah on him in Quran, Abdullah (rah) said: Recite the Kitab of Allah so that I know how Lanah is sent on Yazid, Imam Ahmed (rah) mentioned these verses: Would ye then, if ye were given the command, work corruption in the land and sever your ties of kinship? Such are the men whom Allah has cursed…(47:22-23)Hence could there be a bigger Strife than what Yazid did?[ [Ruh ul Ma’ani by Imam Al-Alusi, Volume 9 Under Surah Muhammad 22-23]

*Imam Dhahabi writes about Yazid

وكان ناصبيا فظا غليظا جلفا يتناول المسكر ويفعل المنكر افتتح دولته بمقتل الشهيد الحسين واختتمها بواقعة الحرة فمقته الناس ولم يبارك في عمره وخرج عليه غير واحد بعد الحسين كأهل المدينة قاموا لله

Translation: He (Yazid) was a disgusting Nasibi (i.e. those who hate Ahlul bayt). He drank and did evil. He started his kingdom with the killing of the Shahid al-Hussain (RA) and ended it with the incident of al-Harra (i.e. besiegement of Madina which also makes him directly liable for Lanah as sahih ahadith prove). Hence the people hated him, he was not blessed in his life, and many took up arms against him after Imam Hussain (RA) such as the people of Madina - they rose for the sake of Allah[As Siyar al Alam an Nabula, Volume No. 4, Page No. 37-38]

If still someone considers this Fasiq, traitor , one who got Imam Hussain (ra) and his companions martyred, one who got Madina ransaked to be a Mutaqee person then he may live in his imaginary world for as long as he wishes!

Lanat on Yazeed and his followers!

Ibn al-Jawzi: “You have made this madhhab such a shameful disgrace that when it is said, “Humbali,” it is understood that he is someone who likens GOD to His creation.
You have then made your way to be that of bigotry and intolerance, showing fanatical support for Yazid ibn Muawiyyah, when you well know that the founder of the madhab permitted cursing him”.
[Daf` Shubah al-Tashbih bi Akuff al-Tanzih]
Abdullah bin Abbas narrates that the Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said,
“I am the scale of knowledge, Ali is its pans, Hasan and Husain are it s ropes, Fatimah is its handle and the leaders (of the ahl-ul-bait) after me are its rods. The deeds of those who love us or have hatred against us will be weighed on this scale.”
[Daylami, al -Firdaws bi mathur al -khi tab (1:44#107) Ajlawni said in Kashf -ul -khi fa wa muzil -ul-ilbas (1:236) Daylami narrated it through Abdullah bin Abbas as a marfu tradition.]
Ahmed Bin Daud Abu Hanifa Dinwari records the statement of Ibn Ziyad:
“I killed Al Hussain due to the reason that he revolted against our Imam [Yazid] and the very Imam[Yazid] sent me the message to kill Al Hussain. Now if the murder of Hussain is a sin then Yazid is responsible for it”
[Akhbaar Tawaal, page 279 (Egypt) by Ahmed Bin Daud Abu Hanifa Dinwari]
Allamah Jalaluddin Suyuti writes in Tareekh Khulfa, page 140:

“Yazid wrote his ruler in Iraq Ibn Ziyad for the murder of Hussain”
“… When this letter reaches you and my messenger comes to you, make al Hussain come to a halt. Let him stop at an open place without protection and water…” [History of Tabari, Volume 19 page 102]

Abu Hurairah said: The Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه وسلم) said : "Whoever commits adultery or drinks wine, Allah will remove faith from him as a person would take off a shirt from his head." (Reported by al-Tirmithi, al-Bayhaqi and al-Hakim)

The Messenger of Allah (
صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: "He has, in fact, left Islam who walks with an oppressor to help him although he knows that he is an oppresor."
( Reported by al-Tabarani)

The Messenger of Allah (
صلى الله عليه وسلم) said: "Whoever argues while knowingly defending falsehood, will continue to be under Allah's anger until he abstains.
(Reported by Abu-Dawood)
The Holy Prophet (صلى الله عليه وسلم)) , himself states clearly:
The curse of Allah on those who scare the people of Madina. It is definitively narrated without a shred of doubt that Yazid bin Muawiyah ransacked Madina Munawwara, killed people there, destroyed homes, etc.. all under his very direct and explicit command.
(Sahih Bukhari)
Sayyiduna Abu Bakr (Allah be pleased with him) said:
"Be mindful of the Messenger of Allah regarding his family."
[Related by Imam Bukhari in his Sahih, in 'Kitab al-Manaqib', hadith #3542]
Hadith {Hussain is from me, I am from Hussain}
Now if Rasoolullah, sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam, curses somebody, everybody else can keep their opinions to themselves.
The Kufr is Yazid bin Muawiyah is explicit in the poetry attributed to him by more than just Imam Ibn Al Jawzi, Imam Tabari, Imam Ibn-ul Athir, and even Ibn Kathir.
Hurting a Muslim is more dangerous than destroyed the Ka'ba, according to Ibn Umar (ra).
Yazid bin Muawiyah did both.
He killed and slaughtered the household of the Prophet, sallallahu alayhi wa aalihi wa sallam, and destroyed not only the Ka'ba in Makkah, but also Madina.
Imam Husayn decalred Jihad on Yazid.
Al Hurr bin Yazid Ar-Riyahi (ra) said: I have given myself a choice between going to Jannah or Jahannam. That’s the difference between Imam Husayn and Yazid bin Muawiyah; Callers to Jannah versus Callers to the Gates of Jahannam.

Quote - Wahabi/Salafi say:
Haafidh Ibn Rajab (d.795H) Haafidh Ibn Rajab also did not hold the opinion of cursing and declaring Yazeed to be a disbeliever. On the contrary he refute the allegation on Imaam Ahmad bin Hanbal that he cursed Yazeed. So he writes in clear words, "The statement of Imaam Ahmad only establishes cursing on all of the oppressors and there is no clarification or specification for the permissibility of cursing Yazeed only." (Dhail Tabaqaat Hanabillah (2/356).

Also Ibn Taymiyyah mentioned in his fatawa.

This is what was reported from Imaam Ahmad, and this is the view of the fair-minded among his companions and others among the Muslims. Saalih ibn Ahmad said:
I said to my father, some people say that they love Yazeed. He said, O my son, does anyone love Yazeed who believes in Allaah and the Last Day? I said, O my father, why do you not curse him? He said, O my son, when did you ever see your father curse anybody?
This is another version of narration from Ahmed ibn Hanbal.

Let me confirm about Ibn Kathir
from Sheikh at Jamia Abu Bakr.
He told me Ibn Kathir just copied narration regarding Yazid from Hafiz Dhabi but these narration are not authentic. Ibn Kathir's personal view of Yazid is same as Ibn Taymiyyah.”
Info: Here

^So now according to the above Wahabis,

Ibn Kathir's volumes of work are..." **** "and should be ignored or even thrown away...?

Ibn Kathir is the Wahabi/Salafi’s biggest historian and a student of Ibn Taymiyya himself.

As the main Wahabis are concerned, his words are written in  gold.
Yet Ibn Kathir himself writes in Bidayah:

"Traditions inform us that Yazeed loved worldly vices, would drink, listen to music, kept the company of boys with no facial hair (civil expression for paedophilia with boys, a form of homosexuality), played drums, kept dogs (civil expression for bestiality), not a day would go by when he was not in a drunken state"

Quote:

Ibn Taymeeya in Minhajj:

"Yazeed had the sword and hence he had the power to deal with anyone that opposed him. He had the power to reward his subjects with the contents of the treasury, and could also withhold their rights. He had the power to punish criminals; it is in this context that we can understand that he was the khalifah and king. Issues such as Yazeed's piety or lack of it, or his honesty or lack of it, is another matter. In all of his actions Yazeed was not just, there is no dispute amongst the people of Islam on this matter". 8


^Is he (Ibn Taymeeya) trying to say something?
lets have a look:
Ibn Taymiyyah, said the following:
“May Allah curse his killers, and whoever was glad with his murder!”
(Ibn Taymiyyah, Majmoo al-Fatawa, Vol.4, pp.403-404)

In regards to the Blessed Nobel Household


Ibn Taymiyyah said:
“The Ahlus Sunnah should love the Prophet’s family, give them support, and honor the Prophet’s will in regards to them, as he said at Ghadir Khumm:
(Al-Aqeedah Al-Wasitiyyah, Chapter 4)

Ibn Katheer in al Bidayah Volume 8 page 222 stated:
"Muslim was ordered to ransack Medina for three days. Yazeed committed a major sin. Sahaba and their children were slaughtered openly; other heinous acts were also perpetuated. We have already mentioned that he had Ibn Ziyad kill the grandson of Rasulullah (s) Husayn and his companions. In those three days in Madina, it is difficult to mention the type of acts that were carried out. By doing this act Yazeed wanted to secure his governance, in the same way Allah (swt) broke the neck of every Pharoah, the true King (swt) also broke the neck of Yazeed".

Also Don’t forget to read: Al-Bidayah Wal Nihayah, Volume 8, Page No. 280

We read in Muruj al Dhahab:

"Due to his hatred of Allah (swt) Yazeed openly drank alcohol. In his deeds he followed the Seerah of Pharoah, but Pharoah was more just to his own subjects."

In Tafseer Ruh al Maani it is stated clearly:
"Allamah Alusi stated, Yazeed the impure denied the Prophethood of Rasulullah (s). The treatment that he meted out to the people of Makka, Medina and the family of the Prophet proves that he was a kaafir".
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".

Zakir Nalayik, who returned from Haj on Wednesday, conveyed his reaction through his brother Mohammed Naik:
At the peace conference, while replying to a question:
“I neither condemned nor lauded Yazeed…
“I did say 'May Allah be pleased with him' while mentioning Yazeed. I can show the fatwas from seminaries like Darul Uloom Deoband supporting my stand."
[end of quote]
^Lets have a look:
"seminaries like Darul Uloom Deoband"
In the first volume of Tajaliyate Safdar [rasail of Mawlana Ameen Okarwi)
If you look up the article of Mawlana Ameen [p. 579-584] you can find many passages of ulama of Deoband stating that Yazid was a Fasiq or degrading him with the nick Yazid Paleed (paleeth) [Yazid, the impure]

The Deobandi Elders said:
Mawlana Qasim Nanotwi [called him Yazid Palid, ajuba arba'in p. 85]
Mawlana Rasheed Ahmed Gangohi [called him Yazid Palid in his work Hidayat Shia, p. 95]
Mawlana Ashraf Ali Thanwi, who called Yazid a Fasiq [Imdadul Fatawa 5/54]
Mawlana Husain Ahmad Madani who said that Yazid committed fisq
Mawlana Abdush Shakur Lucknowi who also called him a Fasiq
Mawlana Qari Muhammad Tayyib is also quite clear about the fisq and fujoor of Yazid stating that the sahaba agreed on Yazid being a fasiq, and the same counts for the mujtahideen, ulama rasikhun, fuqaha like allama Qastalani, Badruddin Ayni, Haythami, Taftazani, Ibn Hummaam, Ibn Kathir mentioning that there is agreement [ittifaaq] of the salaf on yazid committing fisq and thus also holds the same opinion. [Shaheede Karbala aur yazid, p. 152]
Mufti Muhammad Shafi also states the same in Shaheede Karbala [p. 103,] and clearly uses bad words against yazid.”
Mawlana Yusuf Binnori states that there is no doubt about Yazid being a fasiq. [Ma'arifus Sunan 6/18]
This was also repeated by Mufti Zarwali of Ahsanul Uloom. (Yazid Paleed [Yazid, the impure] paleeth)

(Fatwa: 1541/1322=B/1429)

The statements made by Dr Zakir Naik indicate that he is a preacher of Ghair Muqallidin, he is of free mind and does not wear Islamic dress. One should not rely upon his speeches."

Wahabi-islamonline.net
However, the third view – which is the moderate one - is that he was one of the kings of the Muslims, who did good deeds and bad deeds. He was not born until the caliphate of `Uthman. He was not aKafir, but it was because of him that the killing of Al-Husayn took place, and he did what he did to the people of Al-Harrah. He was not aSahabi, nor was he one of the righteous devotees of Allah. This is the view of most of the people of reason and knowledge and of Ahl Al-Sunnah wal-Jama`ah.
Salih ibn Ahmad said: “I said to my father, some people say that they love Yazid.” He said: “O my son, is there any believer who believes in Allah and in the Day of Judgment and love Yazid?” I said: “O my father, why do you not curse him?” He said: “O my son, when did you ever see your father curse anybody?”
Abu Muhammad Al-Maqdisi said: “When he was asked about Yazid: ‘According to what I have heard he is neither to be cursed nor to be loved.’ He also said: ‘I heard that Abu `Abd-Allah ibn Taymiyyah was asked about Yazid and he said: We do not deny his good qualities nor exaggerate about them.’” This is the fairest opinion.” (Majmu` Fatawa Shaykh Al-Islam, part 4, pp. 481-484)”

Permissibility of cursing him by name

Ibn Hajar al-Haythami said:
وبعد اتفاقهم على فسقه اختلفوا في جواز لعنه بخصوص اسمه، فأجازه قوم منهم ابن الجوزي ونقله عن أحمد وغيره
“And after (they) agreed in his (Yazeed) fisq, they differed in permissibility of cursing him by name. And group allowed that, from them ibn Jawzi, and was reported from Ahmad and others”.

Source: [Sawaiq al muhriqa, p 309-310.]



And he said:
روى ابن الجوزي عن القاضي أبي يعلى الفراء أنه روى في كتابه المعتمد في الأصول بإسناده إلى صالح بن أحمد بن حنبل قال قلت لأبي إن قوما ينسبوننا إلى تولي يزيد
فقال يا بني وهل يتولى يزيد أحد يؤمن بالله ولم لا يلعن من لعنه الله في كتابه فقلت وأين لعن الله يزيد في كتابه فقال في قوله تعالى فهل عسيتم إن توليتم أن تفسدوا في الأرض وتقطعوا أرحامكم أولئك الذين لعنهم الله فأصمهم وأعمى أبصارهم فهل يكون فساد أعظم من القتل وفي رواية فقال يا بني ما أقول في رجل لعنه الله في كتابه فذكره


Ibn Jawzi narrated from Qadi Abu Yala al-Fara that he reported in his book “Mutamad fi usul” with chain till Salih ibn Ahmad ibn Abdullah which said: I said to my father: “Group of people attribute love of Yazeed to us”. He said: “O My son, does anyone who believes in Allah would love (tawale) Yazeed, and why not to curse the one whom Allah cursed in his book”. I asked: “And where Allah cursed Yazeed in His book?”. He replied: In saying of Taala:(47:22) But if you held command, you were sure to make mischief in the land and cut off the ties of kinship! (47:23)Those it is whom Allah has cursed so He has made them deaf and blinded their eyes”. And is there mischief great that murder?”. And in (other) report he said: “O my son, what to say about man who was cursed by Allah in his book?”.
Source: [Sawaiq al muhriqa, p 310.]



He (Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal) replied,
"fa hal 'asaytum in tawallaytum an tufsidu fi'l ardi wa tuqatti'u arhamakum. Uläiyka'l ladhina la'nahumullah fa asammahum wa a'ma absarahum [Surah Muhammad, V.22-23] "Then, do you expect that if you were given the rule of the land to cause evil and mischief on earth and severe the bonds of kinship? These are the ones whom Allah has cursed and made them deaf and blinded their sight"
Imam Ahmad said, "Is there any harm or evil bigger than this murderers?"
The Imam of Aqeeda, Allamah Taftazani says in Sharh Maqasid that those who kept quiet about the lanaat on Yazeed did it for the reason that the lanaat might go upwards on Mua’wiyah and Abu Sufyan.
Also check: Tafseer Mazhari
Ibn Khalikan in Wafayaath page 412 whilst discussing the biography of the Shafi'i scholar Abu Hassan bin 'Ali bin Muhammad bin 'Ali al Tabari al Amadadeen al Maroof al Bakeeya al Iraas al Shafeeya, states that:
"He (the above) was once asked 'Can Yazeed who was born during the Khilafat of Hadhrath Umar be counted as a Companion, and what have the Salaf elders said in relation to cursing him?
He replied, 'There are two statements of Imam Ahmad ibn Hanbal on this; one is an indication (that you can), the other direct (both that you can).
These two views were also given by Imam Malik and by Imam 'Abu Hanifa.
We (those who follow Imam Shafi'is fatwas) have only one fatwa in this regard, that it is permissible to curse Yazeed, he should be cursed since he used to play chess, would hunt with Cheetahs and drank alcohol".



The Shaafi Ulema deem it permissible to curse Yazeed
We should point out that Imam Ghazzali(ra) was an adherent of the Shaafi madhab. Another Shaafi scholarAllamah Alusi set out the viewpoint of the Shaafi Ulema on this topic as follows:
“Amongst the Shaafi’s we are in agreement that it is permissible to curse Yazeed” (Haseeya Nabraas page 551)

When a renowned Shaafi scholar has taken the responsibility to reflect the opinion of the Shaafi Ulema, confirming that they deemed it permissible to curse Yazeed, then the opposite voice of Imam Ghazzali’s fatwa becomes batil (false).

Cursing Yazeed?


Fatwa of Abu Hamid Ibn Ghazzali

Ibn Ziyad(LA) sent Shimr(LA)

Ibn Ziyad sent Shimr with orders i.e. If Hussain (RA) agrees then forgive him, if he does not then order Ibn S’ad to attack him, If Ibn S’ad hesitates then kill him too and then you will automatically become the leader of that army.
Shimr wrote a strict letter to Ibn S'ad when he hesitated further, he said If you don’t bring Imam Hussain (RA) to him then he will rather fight you and your army.
When Shimr reached Ibn S’ad’s army, Ibn S’ad said to him: May Allah destroy your house and whatever you have brought may Allah put curse into it, however Ibn S’addid not back off and appointed Shimr as a deputy leader and they in the evening of 9th Muharramthe day of Thursday started to attack Imam Hussain (RA) and his companions,
Shimr stood up and said where are my nephews, at this the sons of Hadrat Ali (RA) i.e. Abbas, Abdullah, Jafar and Usman went towards him.

Shimr along with his companions then attacked Imam Hussain (RA), when companions saw them coming they knew that Imam Hussain (ra) would not be able to face them so they came ahead just to give their lives a Hidiyah. (Then it includes detailed story of how infant children of Imam Hussain got martyred in his hands, he was holding one of them asking for water whereas the Yazids fired arrow at him which passed through the chest of his son, Imam Hussain gave the child back to women in camps and went ahead to fight]
---
(The historians write that Imam Hussain (RA) stood alone for many hours, and whosoever came ahead to kill you returned back thinking that he should not be the one on whose hand his martyrdom shall be written, however a man from Bani Bada came and he was called Malik bin Basheer, he came and struck Imam Hussain (ra)’s head with sword which made a fountain of blood come out from your head and his cap became filled with blood, but Imam Hussain (ra) changed his cap with turban and kept on fighting.
The historians write that Imam Hussain (RA) attacked Ibn S’ad like an injured lion and hit Ibn S’ad with his sword, Ibn Sa’d brought his hand ahead as a shield which got cut, and he tried to turn away from Imam Hussain (RA), the horseriders then attacked to save Ibn S’ad. Then you were covered from all sides as if there is Ghubaar of dust.)

Shimr(LA)



Unimaginable Evil

Shimr^(LA) shouted
"WHAT IS STOPPING YOU FROM KILLING HIM?"

Hearding this Zara bin Sharik At-Tamimi (LA) went towards you and struck your shoulders, then Sinan bin Anas bin Umro Naji (Lanat Ullah) attacked you with his spear and finally brought you down from your horse and separated your head from the body ….


Abi Hamza ash Shami from Abdullah al Yamani who narrated from Qasim bin Najit that he said:


When Imam Hussain (RA)’s head was brought in the court of Yazid bin Mu’awiya, he placed his stick on your teeth and said: The difference between him and me is as Al Hamam said: The swords are broken on the heads of those people who go against us and they are disobedient and cruel (i.e. Imam Hussain RA Naudhobillah)

Hadrat Abu Barza as Salmi (RA) said to him: By Allah your stick is touching the place which was kissed by Prophet (salallaho alaihi wasalam), for sure when (Hussain) will arrive on day of judgment then Prophet صلى الله عليه و آله وسلمwill be his intercessor

The fate of all Evils
Hazrat Aamir bin Sa’ad RadiyAllahu Anhu narrates, ‘After Imam Hussain left this mundane world, I saw RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam in my dream.
He said, ‘O Amir! Go to my companion Baraa’ bin Aazib and convey my Salams and inform him that whosoever killed my son Hussain will go to Hell.’
Thus I went to Hazrat Baraa’ RadiyAllahu Anhu and informed him on what I had seen.’
[Sa’adatul Kaunain]
Hakim narrates on the authority of Hazrat Abdullah bin Abbas RadiyAllahu Anhuma

’Allah Ta’ala conveyed through revelation to RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam that He perished 70,000 in revenge of the killing of Yahya bin Zakariya Alaihimus Salam, but for your grandson Hussain, He will destroy double that number.’ [Khasais ul Kubra]
Ibne Jauzi reports that no assassin of Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu was spared punishment. Some were killed, some became blind and those who were at high positions could not stay there for a long time.
Ibne Katheer testifies that most of the narrations about the fate of the killers of Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu as reported in history are correct. [Al-Hussain]
In the reign of Abdul Malik, when Mukhtar bin Abu Ubaid Saqfi became the governer of Kufa, he became the first person to organise the revenge of the massacre of Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu and his family. He enquired about the killers and then got them killed.

The Fate of Yazid(LA)
In Damascus, in the court of Yazeed, an oppressed member of Ahle Bait cried out: ' The very throne for which you killed Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu, even your own children will never be able to sit upon it.’
And this is exactly what happened. Very soon he fell prey to a dreadful disease. He used to cry due to unbearable aches in the stomach and intestines. When he was certain of his death, he called for his son Muawiyah to hand over the rule to him. But as soon as he started to speak, he was humiliatingly interrupted by his son who shouted:
‘I can never accept the throne which has the stains of the blood of the grandson of RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam on it. May it be destroyed.’
The words of his son made his condition even worse. He kept shouting like a swine. He used to cry for water but to swallow any drop of water would also make him cry. Ultimately he died a degrading and shameful death. His body emitted such stench that nobody could go near or touch him. He did not even receive a dignified burial, he was just thrown in a pit and covered. [Naqshe Karbala]

The Fate of Ubaidullah bin Ziyad
As you have already read, Ubaidullah bin Ziyad was the treacherous soul who was appointed by Yazeed. On his orders Imam Muslim and his two little sons were martyred. And it was he who sent the army to fight Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu.
Mukhtar vowed to take revenge with the killers of Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu. So he sent an army to fight Ubaidullah.
Ubaidullah also prepared for a war and went into the battlefield with 30,000 soldiers. Both the armies met near Mosul. There was heavy fighting from sunrise to sunset. But just as Ubaidullah was about to be defeated, the coward tried to escape. But eventually he was captured and killed.
Ironically the date when he was killed was 10th of Muharram 67 Hijri. His head was cut off and sent to Mukhtar in Kufa. When Mukhtar received the news he decorated the Governor House and invited all the Kufans and placed the head of Ubaidullah at the same spot where the blessed head of Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu was kept.
Mukhtar then addressed the crowd:
‘O Kufans! Look how the tables have turned. It is the same day, same month and the same place. Six years after Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu was wrongly and mercilessly killed, the head of his killer lies here in the most humiliating way.’ He then ordered them to celebrate. [Iedha]
It is recorded in Tirmizi Sharif, that when the heads of Ubaidullah and his accomplices were lying in the court of Mukhtar, a snake appeared from nowhere and went over all the heads. When it reached the head of Ubaidullah, it entered through one of his nostrils, stayed in for a while and exited from the mouth. It repeated this three times before it disappeared.
Killers of Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu in the Wrath of Allah
Hazrat Abu Shaikh narrates that in a gathering people were discussing how all those who were in any way involved in the killing of Imam Hussain were caught up in the Wrath of Allah.
An old man stood up and said, ‘I too helped in his killing but look nothing has happened to me.
Just then he stood up to attend the lamp when he was caught up in flames and burned to his death. A similar incident is narrated by Imam Sa’ad. [Tareekh e Karbala]
Sabt bin Jauzi narrates on the authority of Waqdi that an old man who was involved in the killing of Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu became blind. When people enquired how he became blind, he replied:
‘I saw RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam in my dream. He had a blood stained sword in his hand and some killers of Imam Hussain were lying dead on the ground. When he saw me, he cursed me and rubbed a blood-stained stick in my eye. From that day I have become blind.’ [Iedha]
Allama Ibne Hajar Makki writes that one of the soldiers from the army of Yazeed who hanged the blessed head of Imam Hussain RadiyAllahu Anhu on his horse suddenly became very dark and ugly. People enquired:
‘You were very white and beautiful. How did you turn like this?’ He replied, ‘Ever since the incident of Karbala, two people enter my house every night and they take me to a place where a fire is lit. They hang me into the fire then pull me out. This has caused my appearance to change.’
Later he too died a degrading death.
In the same way it is narrated that one old joiner too became blind.
He says, ‘I saw RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam with a bowl filled with blood. People came to him and he applied the blood in their eyes. I too was sent to him. I said, ‘Ya RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, I was not present at the battlefield in Karbala.’ RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam replied, ‘But you wished that he be killed.’ Then he pulled his finger towards me and I became blind.’ [Iedha]
Allama Barzi narrates on the authority of Hazrat Mansoor, they saw a man in Syria whose face was like a swine. When he was enquired about the reason, he replied, ‘Every day I used to curse Ameer ul Mu’mineen Hazrat Ali RadiyAllahu Anhu and his children. Then one night I saw a dream in which Imam Hasan complained to RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam about me cursing them. RasoolAllah Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam cursed me and spat on me. Since then I have become a sign for people.’ [iedha]
The End of Mukhtar, the Liar
On one side Mukhtar did a commendable job by taking the revenge of Imam Hussain and by killing the killers, but on the other hand, he declared himself as a prophet, thus becoming a infidel.
Hazrat Abdullah bin Zubair RadiyAllahu Anhuma sent an army in 67 Hijri and destroyed him.
[Tareekh e Karbala]
Ibn al Hanafiyya (r.a.) himself cursed and renounced al Mukhtar when he learnt what he was uttering falsely of him as did Syed Imam Jafar al Sadiq (RA)
(The Muqaddimah by Ibn Khaldun, Vol 1, page 406)

Hadrat Zainab (RA) 
in court of
Yazid (Lanat Ullah)

…whereas when you come your intercessor will be Ibn Ziyad. Then he rose up, turned his back towardsYazid and left.

It is narrated through Haris bin Ka’b from Fatima bint Ali (RA) that she said:
When we were made to sit in front of Yazid, he had some mercy upon us, at that time a man from Shaam came and asked Yazid to grant her, he meant me and I was a beautiful woman, hearing him I started to tremble and I thought that maybe this was allowed for them, I held the clothes of my sister Zainab (RA) who was elder and more intelligent than me, she knew that it was not allowed. She said to the man: By Allah you have lied and said a lowly thing, this thing is not allowed between you and her. YAZID GOT ANGRY AND SAID TO ZAINAB: NO YOU HAVE LIED INSTEAD, BECAUSE BY ALLAH SHE IS JAIZ UPON ME AND IF I WANT TO DO IT WITH HER THEN I MAY DO SO (Naudhobillah)
Hadrat Zainab (ra) said: By Allah it is definitely not allowed for you except if you leave our Ummah and choose a deen other than Islam. Hadrat Zainab (ra) explains that Yazid became red in anger and said: You challenging me is a proof of your brother and father being expelled from Islam (what an absurd and stupid logic of Yazid Lanti Kadhab), Zainab (RA) replied: Your father, your grandfather and you were guided through the deen of Allah, Deen of my father, deen of my brother and deen of my meternal grandfather (i.e. Prophet salallaho alaihi wasalam).
Yazid said: O enemy of Allah you have lied.
Zainab (RA) said: What kind of Ameer ul Momineen are you that you abuse by being one? Hadrat Zainab(RA) said that Yazid became speechless, the Shami man asked again for the lady, Yazid said GET LOST, MAY ALLAH GIVE YOU PAINFUL DEATH. [Yazid did not punish Zainab even after her courage in his court]

Hadith:

Sayyidah Salmaa reported that she went to Sayyidah Umm Salamah (RA) and found her weeping. She asked her what made her weep. She said: I saw Allah’s Messenger (salallaho alaihi wasalam) in my dream. There was dust on his head and beard. I asked him, What is wrong with you, O Messenger of Allah?. 
He said: I have just witnessed Husayn’s murder
