If people are content to stop with their dislike, it is all right, but we too would have cursed him. During the last days of his reign he made the people pledge their support for his son Yazid.
This woman's name was Hababah and she predeceased Yazid. Yazid’s fear of Imam Husayn (a.s.) was so great that he sent a special emissary with a letter to al-Waleed commanding him to get the oath of allegiance from Imam Husayn (a.s.), Abdullah Bin Umar, Abdullah bin Az-Zubair, with a special stress on Imam Husayn (a.s.), and to kill them if they refused.  The order was reversed by Caliph Hisham ibn Abd al-Malik (r.  He is considered a tyrant who was responsible for three major crimes during his caliphate: the death of Husayn ibn Ali and his followers at the Battle of Karbala, considered a massacre; the aftermath of the Battle of al-Harrah, in which the troops of Yazid's general, Muslim ibn Uqba, pillaged the town of Medina; and the burning of the Kaaba during the siege of Mecca, which was blamed on Yazid's commander Husayn ibn Numayr. The most abominable of these was the murdering of Imam Husayn (a.s.), his family and a group of his supporters, during the first year of his rule.  Yazid's other sons were al-Nu'man, Yahya, Muhammad, al-Ghamr, Sulayman, Abd al-Jabbar, Dawud, Abu Sulayman, al-Awwam and Hashim. 2. , Evading the pursuit of Umar's or Yazid's commanders, Ibn al-Muhallab made his way to Basra, the center of his family and Azd Uman tribe. They searched all the known routes to Mecca but could not find the desert route followed by ibn az-Zubair.1 Ibn az-Zubair reached Mecca and sought asylum in the sanctuary of the Kaaba, where he sought to win over followers by pretensions to piety. He told the Umayyad people to either let him choose his successor or select the next caliph on their own. We, Muslims of Medina have pledged our allegiance to a man called Abdullah ibn Hanzalah who is often called Ghasil al-Mala'ikah, we cannot bear to live under the tyranny and corruption of the debauched drunkard Yazid and his agents." Husayn answered Walid's summon, while Ibn al-Zubayr did not.  Under Yazid, Maslama and his proteges, including Ibn Hubayra, were restored or appointed to senior commands, Syrian garrisons were reintroduced to Iraq, the traditional annual raids against the Byzantines and the war with the Khazars were restarted, and the grants of estates or generous sums to Umayyad princes resumed. After failed attempts to regain the confidence of Ibn al-Zubayr and the people of the Hejaz through diplomacy, Yazid sent an army to end the rebellion. , Yazid died in Irbid in the Balqa (e. g. Transjordan) subdistrict of Jund Dimashq (military district of Damascus) on 26 Sha'ban 105 AH (28 January 724 CE). Allah knows better who is Wali Ullah or Lanaat Ullah. He also sent letters to Basra, but his messenger was handed over to the governor Ubayd Allah ibn Ziyad and killed. Immediately after killing Imam Husayn (a.s.) it was this same man who sat back to repose in front of a feast of food and wine, surrounded by musicians, singers and wine-pourers. On seeing that the letter contained the command to kill him, Imam Husayn suggested that al-Waleed should gather the people of Medina in a public meeting and ascertain their opinion whether Imam Husayn (a.s.) should take the oath of allegiance acknowledging Yazid’s sovereignty. He was the second of the dynastic rulers at the beginning of the Islamic era. They deserted your brother Imam Hasan (S) when he was attacked by Mu’awiya’s men. [d] The silent endurance by the companions of the Prophet (S) and the next generation (Tabi’een),10 was not on account of their approval of Yazid’s evil character, but because they did not like bloodshed and therefore they did not consider it proper to assist him. These savage godless men acting in accordance with the saying 'the way the common people live is dictated by the behaviour of their kings' imitated the behaviour of Yazid, following the example of their savage, debauched tyrant king they subjected those who had fled to the mosques to unspeakable atrocities.

Muʿāwīya (Arabic:مُعاویَة بْن یَزید بْن معاویة) (d. 64/683), also known as The Second Mu'awiya, was the third Umayyad caliph who occupied the position of the caliphate in 64/683 and resigned from power after a short time.  He was the son of Caliph Abd al-Malik (r. 685–705) and his influential wife Atika, the daughter of Yazid II's namesake, Caliph Yazid I (r. Muslim ibn ‘Uqbah the commander of this army of bloodthirsty men, entered the mosques and the Haram sanctuary of the noble Prophet on horseback in search of those who had sought refuge there, in total violation of the ancient custom they put everyone to the sword, the mosque and the Haram of the noble Messenger (s.a.w.a.) The above reference establish that scholars and historians of all times, who were just and did not carry any prejudice, declared Yazid to be an unjust ruler, infidel and hypocrite who deserved to be cursed. Reign. His control was limited to just some parts of Syria, however, and he died after a few months from an unknown illness. Imam Husayn (a.s.), as his father Imam Ali (a.s.), never aspired for political leadership, but he expressed his reservations against the sinful and debauch Yazid’s taking control of the affairs of the Islamic world. They were able to see with their own eyes what kind of man was the man who was ruling as a caliph of Islam, namely a man who loved wine, racing dogs, gambling and a life of ease and luxury and shamelessly violated the honour of men, women and children alike.
The best witness against anyone is his immediate family and here is what he says: which ignoramus posted this? and towards other Mosques of the Muslims. He wrote to his cousin, the governor of Medina, Walid ibn Utba ibn Abu Sufyan, informing him of the death of Muawiya and instructing him to secure allegiance from Husayn ibn Ali, Ibn al-Zubayr and Ibn Umar.

Imam Husayn (a.s.) continued to propagate Islamic sciences as the acknowledged Imam. Such writers are, in reality, the progeny of Yazid, and therefore, until recently, used to consider Yazid as the Commander of the Faithful [Ameerul Mo’minin].  According to Wellhausen, the story of abdication by Muawiya II is likely a Marwanid fabrication, since they had sidelined Sufyanids despite there being a pact that Yazid's second son Khalid will succeed Marwan.
Act so fiercely that they have no chance to do anything before giving the oath of allegiance. It is due to us that creatures get their sustenance, and it is due to us that life continues. , An anecdote told of Yazid is that his wife Su'da learning he was pining for an expensive slave girl, purchased this slave girl and presented her to Yazid as a gift. He never, as is the wont of men, sought glory for himself because of his royal rank, but lived as a citizen along with all the common people".

 Ibn Artat was unable to stop Ibn al-Muhallab's entry and the latter, with support from his Yamani tribal allies in the Basra garrison, besieged Ibn Artat in the city's citadel. I swear to God that if this mundane world is a blessing, then we had our share of it, and if it is a loss, then whatever Al Sufyan gained is enough. Do not go to Kufa but stay in Mecca, for once you are killed we will be annihilated.”5, The animosity of Yazid towards Imam Husayn was because of his inherent character and his denial of Islam, a religion ostensibly professed for political gain and just to stay in power.

YAZID OULAB On hearing this, ibn Mutee’ said, “I was afraid that you may be heading towards Kufa [on account of the thousands of letters addressed by the Kufians]. There are different historical explanations, however, about why he disliked the caliphate.
Yet Yazid was mortally afraid that a day would come when people would be attracted to the Islamic teachings of Imam Husayn (a.s.), and Yazid’s own misdeeds would lead to a revolt.
