The devil has an influence, and the Ruler has a sword. “Hajjaj Bin Yusuf Episode 23.” I am here amongst you again with a different face and a different attitude. “Episode 23” Mother. Mother. Mother. Mother! No, no! Mother! No! Mother! Answer me, Mother! No, don’t close her eyes.
She could only die while her eyes were gazing at the heavens, just as her heart was always longing for the heavens. She’s now asleep on Abi Bakr Al-Siddiq’s chest, while Mos’ab and Abdullah are sleeping in her lap, basking in God’s mercy in His Heaven. I used to accept that from Hajjaj Bin Yusuf Episode 23 you as your father, but I won’t accept it now as a Caliph, you being my Successor.
who should see eye to eye in all the affairs concerning the State. Otherwise, things will get out of our hands. You have the final say, I’m just sharing my opinion. Keep it to yourself while in the court if it opposes my opinion.
Hajjaj Bin Yusuf Episode 23
I waited until everyone has left to talk to you about this. Listen, Waleed, you will succeed me one day. Not before a very long time, I hope. It doesn’t matter when it will happen, but rather what will happen in it. It’s a powerful, unified State, and if you don’t rule it with firmness, and allow controversy to intervene with your decisions, people will underestimate you, and things will get out of your control.
We only disagreed about Al-Hajjaj. Leave him to me and don’t oppose me. Since the days of Mu’awiya, Yazeed Ibn Mu’awiya, and my father Marwan bin Al-Hakam, and here I am now, Abdullah bin Al-Zubair has been creating unrest in the Umayyad State.
He was a dagger in the heart of the Umayyad State. Al-Hajjaj was the only one capable of eliminating him once and for all. He’s just one of your men. You provided him with what enabled him to do that. So be it, rulers derive their strength from their Caliphs. Hence, if I’m to recommend a man for you to rely on after I’m gone, that will be Al-Hajjaj.
I talk ill of him and yet you recommend him to me? You talk ill of him because you don’t know him, while I recommend him because I know both of you. I think we’ve talked about this more than enough, and I hope this is the last time we’ll ever discuss it. Verily, we belong to God, and to him we shall return.
May God bless her soul. She only died because of her longing for her son Abdullah, in the Heaven which God prepared for the devout and the patient. She suffered for a month while Abdullah was hung on that wooden cross, yet she endured it.
As soon as he was taken down, washed, enshrouded and buried, she couldn’t wait any longer to meet him. Hajjaj bin yusuf Tell me, for you saw everything up close. Yes, God granted me the honor of washing Abdullah’s corpse along with others.
We washed every part of his body, then we enshrouded him until we were done. All the while, his mother Asma was patient only to follow him in no more than seven days. God damn Al-Hajjaj! God damn Al-Hajjaj! Keep your voice down! Keep your voice down! How is the construction of the Ka’ba going? Won’t you go and see? Abdullah Ibn Al-Zubair had always attended it and supervised it. Don’t mention him. Yes, I’ll check it out.
What’s the matter? I came with a request. What is it? I want to stay in the house of Ibn Al-Zubair for some days to help the family during the wake of Lady Asma’s death. You still feel loyal to Ibn Al-Zubair and his family. My Lord… That’s fine. Loyalty to the dead doesn’t affect loyalty to the living. That’s enough, Aunt. You’re killing yourself. I’m already dead. A part of me dies with the death of every loved one. I only came to Makkah to be near my mother.
Now I have no reason to stay. The Earth has become a grave swallowing Al-Zubair’s family. No, Aunt, no. All the martyrs of Al-Zubair’s family will live on this earth, even if their bodies have departed it. Come on, Aunt, let’s go inside. Let’s go. Iraq, Iraq, Iraq! Why do I appoint rulers if they can’t suppress minor seditions?
What is Khaled bin Abdullah doing in Basra? And what is Bishr bin Marwan doing in Kufa? Ibn Al-Muhallab Ibn Abi Sufrah is in Ahvaz and he can’t fight after the people of Basra abandoned him and his supplies were cut off. Come, come and listen, Waleed come on. Are you still totally preoccupied about Iraq, My Lord? I thought that after we reclaimed Iraq as a part of the State, it would regain stability and the seditions there would be suppressed. should I have resided there for ages, ruling it with an iron fist to keep its people under control?
No, send them someone to do that instead. Who’s for Iraq? Who’s for Iraq after it’s gone into flames? Al-Hajjaj. I can’t believe you’re saying this! You hate Al-Hajjaj and you often condemn him, and you consider him the worst of men, yet you recommend him to me? I still stand by my opinion of him, and I still despise him. However, my advice is to fight evil with evil. Thus, you will release the people of Hijaz from his grip, and impose it upon the people of Iraq. For if they’re as you described, then they deserve to be punished with him. I’ll postpone this until I return from the Pilgrimage this year.
For years, we have been asking Ibn Al-Zubair the permission to Hajjaj Bin Yusuf Episode 23 perform the Pilgrimage as Makkah was under his control. Now, we perform it while Hijaz is under our control.
As for Iraq, let’s leave it until we are through with this. I won’t take your advice, but I’ll think about it. Wasn’t the war in Hijaz over and it became under the Caliph’s control? So, why doesn’t he send us reinforcement?
We don’t need reinforcement by the Caliph to face this. These are nothing but minor seditions that can be easily suppressed. How? tell me! Hajjaj Bin Yusuf Episode 23 I sent the people of Basra back home after I released them from Al-Muhallab’s army. They were absorbed in their war against the Khawarij, but after the threat of the Khawarij was gone, they did what they did. I don’t understand you.
They need a constant danger to threaten them, or to be occupied with a war outside Basra. What we face here concerns me more than the Khawarij. hajjaj bin yusuf They are inseparable. You talked a lot, and it’s all in vain.
I won’t send any man to Al-Muhallab. Instead, I will send to discharge him, if the Caliph allows me. As for here, Hajjaj Bin Yusuf Episode 23 I’ll treat the people of Basra firmly until they relent, and become powerless. Why am I here? Am I a guardian and a tribute collector for the Umayyads?
I’m a man of war and an army leader. That’s why I was sent after and that’s why I came here. Of course, My Lord they only disregarded this because Hajjaj Bin Yusuf Episode 23 they were occupied with what was happening in Hijaz. This is how the Umayyad State is; They take control over a part of it, only to lose control over another. Then why don’t you send to the Caliph? http://Pakurdo.com
If Al-Muhallab Ibn Abi Sufrah is among those the caliph forgets, then I won’t remind him. And if I am to send anything to him, it will be to ask him to discharge me, for I’ve been serving them and their interests, Hajjaj Bin Yusuf Episode 23but I won’t be made to suffer its consequences. hajjaj bin yusuf What are you going to do? I’ll wait and think about this, until it clears up so I can take a decision. Father.
Hind. Father! Yazeed! Come on. How could Ibn Al-Ash’ath enter Kufa and leave it without leaving any trace? Hajjaj Bin Yusuf Episode 23 The people of Kufa hate the Umayyads. Woe betide you! How could you say that to my face? Get out! Wait! Come here.
