Quran: And hold firmly to the rope of Allah all together & do not become divided.(3/103) O you who have believed, fear Allah. & let every soul look to what it has put forth for tomorrow - & fear Allah. Indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what you do.(59/18) He decreed for you the same religion decreed for Noah, & what we inspired to you, & what we decreed for Abraham, Moses, & Jesus: "You shall uphold this one religion, & do not divide it."(42:13). The idol worshipers will greatly resent what you invite them to do. GOD redeems to Himself whomever He wills; He guides to Himself only those who totally submit.(42:14) Hadith: Make (Execute) For Allah, As Allah is watching you. Ummah Unity

The One simple Doubt and its Answer about Yazid

A Doubt and its answer

There can be a question about the Hadith of Sunan Abu Dawood that Hadhrath Abu Ayyub Ansari (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) passed away in the battle which had been fought under Yazid, as given in Sahih Bukhari, Volume. 1, Page No. 158:

Translation: Mahmood bin Rab‘ee says that I described this to the people, in which the Companion Hadhrath Abu Ayyub Ansari (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) was present on the occasion of this battle. He passed away in this battle & Yazid bin Mu‘awiyah was the commander of this army in Rome.

In the Hadith of Sunan Abu Dawood, Hadhrath ‘Abdur Rahman bin Khalid bin Walid (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) is mentioned. It is also mentioned in the same Hadith that Hadhrath Abu Ayyub Ansari (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) performed Jihad continuously so much so that he passed away.

It may seem that Yazid was present in the army of Hadhrath ‘Abdur Rahman bin Khalid bin Walid, but this is incorrect because Hadhrath Abu Ayyub Ansari (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) did not pass away when he was under the command of ‘Abdur Rahman bin Khalid bin Walid (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him).

Hadhrath ‘Abdur Rahman bin Khalid bin Walid (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) led the attack on Constantinople in 44 or 46 Hijri & he passed away in 46 or 47 Hijri. Constantinople has been attacked after that, in 49 Hijri under the command of Hadhrath Sufyan bin ‘Auf (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) & in 52 Hijri under the command of Yazid bin Mu‘awiyah.

Hadhrath Abu Ayyub (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) participated in both the battles that took place after the passing away of Hadhrath ‘Abdur Rahman bin Khalid bin Walid (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him). In the attack of 52 Hijri, he passed away & this is the army, which has been mentioned in Sahih Bukhari.

According to the Hadith of Sunan Abu Dawood, Hadhrath ‘Abdur Rahman bin Khalid bin Walid’s (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) commanding the army & his passing away in 46 or 47 Hijri, Hadhrath Abu Ayyub Ansari (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) participation in the battles of 49 & 52 Hijri & his passing away in 52 Hijri & Yazid’s participation in this particular battle, all this prove that Yazid did not participate in the battle that was fought under the command of Hadhrath ‘Abdur Rahman bin Khalid bin Walid (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him).

It is also proved that the siege, in which Yazid participated, was not the first siege, but before this in 32, 43 & 46 Hijri, Constantinople had been attacked. When Yazid did not participate in the 1st siege of Constantinople, he is not included in the forgiveness referred to in the Hadith, because The Holy-Prophet (Peace be upon Him) never said that all the armies which attack Constantinople are forgiven, but He (Peace Be upon Him ) said that only the first army to attack Constantinople is forgiven.
