In praise of Hazrat Yazid ibn Muawiya – by Abdul Nishapuri

The following are a few examples of some prominent Salafi (Ahl-e-Hadith or Wahhabi) and Salafist-Deobandi scholars of Saudi Arabia, India and Pakistan who claim themselves to be Sunni Muslims (Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat) and treat Yazid ibn Muawiyah as a legitimate Caliph and Hazrat Imam Hussain as a rebel or treat the tragedy of Karbla as a battle between two princes (of the Umayyad and Hashemite clans).

Grand Mufti Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah bin Baz of Saudi Arabia praises Yazeed (R.A.)

Yazeed bin Muaviyah Kaun? – by Sheikh Maqsood-ul-Hassan Faizi (Salafi-Wahhabi)

Sponsored by Dr. Zakir Naik’s Islamic Research Centre (IRC) and Islamic Dawa and Guidance Centre, Al Ghat, Saudi Arabia

Dr. Zakir Naik (Salafi-Deobandi) praises Yazeed

A video of Dr Zakir Naik saying “May Allah be pleased with him” for Yazid and calling Karbala a political war.

Dr. Zakir Naik defends his praise of Yazid

Dr. Zakir Naik’s further clarification about Yazid

10th Muharram is an Eid day, Muharram is a month of happiness. A student of Zakir Naik’s IRC claims:

Dr Israr Ahmed (Salafi-Deobandi) of Pakistan exonerates Yazid from Imam Hussain’s murder

Javed Ahmed Ghamidi (Salafi-Deobandi) exonerates Yazid

Despite his non-Takfeeri approach to Shias and Sufis/Barelvis (something which distinguishes him from Takfir Salafists and Takfiri Deobandis, e.g. Ihsan Elahi Zaheer, Manzoor Nomani, Haq Nawaz Jhangvi etc), Javed Ghamidi generally negates almost all traditions in which Ahl-e-Bait (family) of the Prophet have been praised. His views on the great sacrifice of Imam Hussain in Karbala are completely in line with those of Zakir Naik, Israr Ahmed, Abdul Aziz bin Baz, Ibn Taymiyyah etc, although he is not as transparent. He considers Imam Hussain as a leader of an illegitimate rebellion and exonerates Yazid from the murder of Imam Hussain and other members of the Prophet’s family. He blames Ibn Ziyad for Hussain’s murder and terms the entire incident as an ‘afsosnak hadsa’ “a regrettable accident”. This apolitical, acontextual assessment of Karbala is in stark contrast with analyses of Karbala by other Sunni and Shia scholars who support Imam Hussain’s just opposition (Qayam) to Yazid’s illegitimate rule.

Ghamidi claims that: “Imam Hussain had reviewed his decision of opposition to Yazid; he wanted to move away from Karbala and even wanted to go to Yazid but Ibn Ziyad’s army did not allow that”.

Ghamidi rationalizes Muawiya’s mutiny (baghawat) against a legitimate ruler (Hazrat Ali, the Khalifa-e-Rashid). He presents false neutrality between Hazrat Ali and Muaviya and exonerates Muaviah under the cover of Ijtihadi Ghalti (an error of judgement) and lack of information. Of course, he will not use similar logic to exonerate Abu Jehl or Abu Lahb.

Sunni (Salafi-Deobandi) followers of Yazid

Alternative Sunni perspective

Majority of Sunni Muslims, including Hanafis (Barelvi, Deobandi) and Salafis (Ahl-e-Hadith), treat Yazid and his father as a deviation from the Khilafat-e-Rashida (Rashidun Caliphs), and support Imam Hussain’s stance against Yazid and Hazrat Ali’s stance against Muawiya. They consider all those who either exonerate or justify actions of Yazid and his father against Hazrat Ali, Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain as Nasibis, i.e., enemies of the Ahl-e-Bait (family) and descendants (Aal) of the Prophet Muhammad.

Here are a few examples:

Maulana Muhammad Ishaq’s (a Salafi scholar) views:

Moulana Tariq Jameel’s (Tablighi, Deobandi scholar) views

Dr. Tahir ul Qadri’s (Sunni, Hanafi, Barelvi) views

Pir Alaudin Siddiqui’s (Sunni Barelvi scholar) views

Muhaddith Zubair Ali Zai’s views (Ahl-e-Hadith, Salafi)

Maulana Tauseef-ur-Rehman’s (Salafi) views

Maulana Syed Abul Aala Maududi’s (Sunni, Deobandi, founder of Jamaat-e-Islami) views

    @Sirja: Dear, how can one find unity in on the ground where one finds no difference between ‘right’ and ‘wrong’. When you come to be united on ‘Yazeed’–it is like equalizing darkness with brightness. And, there will be no question to fight against oppressors, dictators, monarchs of the world. ‘Hussain’ and ‘Yazeed’ are symbols; former referring to ‘sacrification for human values’ and latter referring to ‘violation of human values.’

    Sir, unity is possible on other issues, at least not such one! Accept reality.

      Claiming to be a Muslim and words like Yazeed ,symbol of darkness , violation of human values. WALLAH Yazeed is better than thousands of the shia rawafiz and anyone who hates Yazeed{ may Allah grant him jannah }

    We must not forget that IMMAM HUSSAIN A.S.W.S is son of our Prophet A.S.W.S. Kindly look at Ayat of Mubahila (Sura Ali Imran, Ayat No. 61). Even Christians when saw Mola Muhammad A.S.W.S, Mola Ali A.S.W.S, BIBI FATIMA A.S.W.S, IMMAM HASSAN A.S.W.S, IMMAM HUSSAIN A.S.W.S accepted THEIR A.S.W.S SUPERIORITY in MUBAHILA. IMMAM HASSAN A.S.W.S AND IMMAM HUSSAIN A.S.W.S are MASTERS OF HEAVENS (HADEETH). ZAKIR NAIK said that it was a political war. This is biggest lie ever. IMMAM HUSSAIN A.S.W.S represents HAQ while Yazeed represents Taghut. Why Yazeedi army killed Hazrat ALI ASGHAR A.S.W.S (6 Months Son of IMMAM HUSSAIN A.S.W.S). Why YAZEED gave prices to KILLERS. YAZEED is burning in HELL and SATAN is calling others on earth to join YAZEED. People kindly do some research before your death unites you with YAZEED LANTI FOREVER……RECOGNIZE AAL E MUHAMMAD A.S.W.S

    Why only blaim Muaawiya & yazeed , The real power Game begun immediately when Rasulallah ( saw ) .was still breathing his last breath .. When He asked for pen & paper , He was back answered saying Quran & Sunnah is enough for us . Being a sahaba ,how can he Disobey the order of prophet and later on claim to be his successor ,
    This was the begining and muawiya and yazeed followed this chain of power Grabers later . and being khalifa They all were either elected or selected or you can say nominated by people or friends . Do they have any Evidence that they had nass or Appointed by prophet Himself . Did prophet declared the list of other khalifas to be followed , at the time of appointing Hazrat Ali ( a.s ) as the Moula at Gadeer e khoom . For Total muslemeen of the world .
    SPEAK TRUTH , AND HIDE NOTHING , BE OPEN MINDED , AND CORRECT ALL OUR MISTAKES OF PAST , AND UNITE TOGETHER AGAINST ENEMY OF ISLAM . MAY ALLAH SUBAHANAHU GIVES US TAUFEEQ . AAMEEN .

    they adore yazid n muawiya which means they are ok with such govt as saudi who’s fond of liquor n unlawful women themselves like yazid.. These persons are of the pre-historic type, or the ignorance era, so they hate any enlightment, while Prophet saw n His family are the enlightened individuals.. So our diffence is clear-cut, eventhough they try hard to mingle n infiltrate.. like water n oil

    You all shiya are in reality killer of Hazrat Ali’s family & you all sons of khufi’s. you ignorant & illiterate even says Hazrat Zibril had mistaken( ie Allah nauzbillah) you fools.

    All the people whose video & photos are uploaded are fool,senseless& backbitters. Imam hussain a.s. never thought to fight with any community. When he was going to karbala,he distributed his power like he send his brother janab -e-muslim to kufa who was very powerful and never give permission to janab-e-abbas to go for battle because he knew that only janab-e- abbas wis enough for 1 lakh army of yazeed(lanet ho us per).

    It is our Iman that Amir Al Momineen Hazrat Ali R.A was known for his bravery and was titled as The Lion of ALLAH SWT, Hence, before making any judgments one should keep in his mind that he should not disrespect His R.A Bravery by falsly proving him to be a mere spectator to all that is alleged despite knowing everything. ALLAH huma salay ala Muhammad wa ala Aalihe wa sahbihe wa barik wasalim.

    Dear sister Fatima Tayyab! There is no need for giving any justification (for theek or Ghalat). The status (here and there) of Imam Hussain a.s is quite clear and every one (even non-muslims) understand it. But v should not even think ( his name results in mental torture) of Yazeed; as he can not be compared with the purified souls.

    Neither Muawiyah , nor yazeed were just. But Ameer Muawiyah hurt islam more , his 20 years reign was against islam and finally it ended by placing a pathetic person on throne called yazeed.

    Brother please see the video of Dr Israr Ahmed you have posted above. It is in no way exonerating Yazid in any way. Yazid is not even being discussed in this video. I would suggest you remove it. Thanks.

    As a sunni muslim i am completely and utterly shocked to see that yazeed has supporters and there are actually so called muslims trying to justify his actions and claim imam hussain(as) “rebelled” against yazeed? Im honestly disgusted that this is how people are portraying our beloved prophet s.a.w beloved grandson.
