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 Third Attack on Constantinople Was In 44 Hijri Or 46 Hijri

Third attack on Constantinople

The third attack on Constantinople was in 44 Hijri or 46 Hijri. It is mentione in Tarikh Kamil in the incidents of the year of 44 Hijri:

Translation: In 44 Hijri Muslims with Hadhrath ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin Khalid bin Waleed (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with them) entered Rome & spent the winter there itself & Hadhrath Busr bin Artah (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) fought through the sea.

(Tarikh Kamil, Volume. 3, Page no. 298)

It is given in the same book in the incidents of 46 Hijri:

Translation: Hadhrath Malik bin ‘Abdullah (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) remained in the kingdom of Rome & it has also been said that Hadhrath ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin Khalid bin Waleed (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with them) stayed there & returned to Hims the same year & passed away into the presence of Almighty-Allah. (Al Tarikh Al Kamil, Volume. 3, Page No. 309)

The Commander of third army to attack to Constantinople was Hadhrat Abdur Rahmaan bin Khalid bin Waleed (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with them). This attack has been mentioned not only in the books of history, but also in Sunan Abu Dawood, which is a reliable book from the 6 most authentic & reliable books of Hadith (Sihah Sittah). It is given in Sunan Abu Dawood, Volume. 1, Kitab Ul Jihad, Page No. 340 (Hadith No: 2151)

That Muslims attacked Constantinople & in this battle, Hadhrath ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin Khalid bin Waleed (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) was the commander.

Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrath Abu ‘Imran (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him): We left Madina with the intention of attacking Constantinople. The commander of the army was Hadhrath ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin Khalid bin Waleed (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him). The Romans had their backs to the ramparts. A person readied himself for attack. The people said: Laa Ilaha illallah, he is taking himself to death.

Hadhrath Abu Ayyub Ansari (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) said: This verse has been revealed about us, when Almighty-Allah helped the Holy Prophet (Peace Be upon Him ) & made Islam dominant, then we said: Come let us remain with our property & wealth & set them right.

Then Almighty-Allah Most High sent this command: And spend in the way of Almighty-Allah & do not put yourself in mortal danger.” Surah Baqarah (2:195)

And so to take oneself to death is to remain with our property, busy oneself in setting them right & abandon Jihad. Hadhrath Abu ‘Imran says that Hadhrath Abu Ayyub Ansari (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) used to perform Jihad for the sake of Almighty-Allah to the extent that he was buried in Constantinople.

According to the above mentioned details, the army, which attacked Constantinople under Ameer Mu‘awiyah (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with him) in 32 Hijri is the first army & this is the army, which according to Sahih Bukhari, is forgiven.

It is made clear by the Hadith of Sunan Abu Dawood, that the Commander of the army, which attacked Constantinople was Hadhrath ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin Khalid bin Waleed (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with them), who passed away in either 46 or 47 Hijri, as given in Tarikh Kamil in the incidents of 46 Hijri.

Al Tarikh Al Kamil, Volume. 3, Page No. 309. In Bidayah Wan Nihayah, Volume. 8, Page No. 34 also, his year of passing away is mentioned as 46 Hijri, but in “Usud-ul-Ghaba Fi Ma’arifatis Sahabah”, it is mentioned as 47 Hijri:

Sunan Abu Dawood is from among the six most authentic books of Hadith (Sihah Sittah). It is by all standards more preferable than the books of history. This proves beyond doubt that under the leadership of Hadhrat Abdur Rahmaan bin Khalid bin Waleed (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with them) Constantinople was attacked before 46 or 47 Hijri, as the canons of history 31 & Hadith criticism establish that Hadhrath ‘Abdur Rahmaan bin Khalid bin Waleed (May Almighty-Allah be well pleased with them) passed away in 46 or 47 Hijri.

In 32 Hijri, in 43 Hijri, in 44 Hijri or 46 Hijri, Yazid did not participate in any of these 3 sieges.
