Yazeed-Lover Dr Zakir Naik’s White Lie In The Name Of Sahih Bukhari By Maulana Muhammad A K Azad

I would like to present the seriousness and gravity of Zakir Naik's infringements on Yazeed issue in the court of wise readers and appeal modestly to their soul and conscience to decide what is haque and what is batil.Brother Zakir tries to justify his stand on Yazeed on the basis of this claim that " There is a hadith in Bukhari those people who will conquer Constantinople they will go heaven and Yazeed (rahi mullah) was the commander." [REF:    Reply by Dr.Zakir Naik on Yazeed Pt.1 13th JULY 2008(ITALY)]

Dear Truth Seeking Readers !Decide yourself: Point No. o1To Be Noted : Brother Zakir's claim that there is a hadith in Bukhari, "those people who will conquer Constantinople they will go heaven and Yazeed was the commander", is a white lie.[ Ref:] I Challenge him on behalf of Ahle Sunnat Wa Zamaat to produce the hadith of Sahih Bukhari where such words are mentiond. If he can produce it, each and every Muslim will accept his stand. But he can't produce such Hadith. The truth is, he has not read the original text of the concerned Hadith of Sahih Bukhari and only uttered the words taught by his Kharizi mentors like a parrot. It's misfortune for Muslim Ummah that Such ignorant, arrogant and ill-informed person is hyped and marketed as "Allamatul Muslimin, saviour of Muslim Ummah etc"!!!


             Concerned Hadith of Sahih Bukhari: Now, I implore Honourable Readers to go through the concerned Hadith of Sahih Bukhari watchfully and attentively to realize the hollowness of Mr. Ahle Sahih Hadith's Hadith-knowledge :

            Narrated Khalid Bin Madan that Umair bin Al-Aswad Al-Anasi told him that he went to Ubada bin As-Samit while he was staying in his house at the sea-shore of Hims with (his wife) Um Haram.Umair said: Um Haram informed us that she heard the Prophet (PBUH) saying, "Paradise is granted to the first batch of my followers who will under take a naval expedition." Um Haram added, "I said, 'O Allah's Apostle! Will I be amongst them?' He replied, 'You are amongst them.' The Prophet (PBUH) then said, 'The first army amongst my followers who will invade Caesar's City will be forgiven their sins.' I asked, 'Will I be one of them, O Allah's Apostle?' He replied in the negative." [REF: SAHIH BUKHARI: Vol 1, Pg No. 409, 410 (Hadith No. 2924)

             Dear Readers! Sahih Bukhari's Hadith is explicit. Rasulullah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam said, "awwalu jaishin min ummati yaghzoona madinata Qaisara maghfurullahum" i.e.,"The first army amongst my followers who will invade Caesar's City will be forgiven their sins" and Dr. Naik says, "those people who will conquer Constantinople they will go heaven and Yazeed was the commander"!!! Does the name "Constantinpole" exist in Holy Hadith? No, "Madinatu-Qaiser" i.e.,"Caesar's City" exists in the text, not Constantinople. Constantinople is one of the cities of Caesar, not the only city.In any Lughat (Arabic Dictionary) the meaning of the city of Caesar is not only the Constantinople. There used to be many cities. Does Holy Hadith certify all the conquerers of Constantinople will go to heaven? No, Holy Hadith gave glad tiding for the first Muslim army invading Caesar's city.

               Did Yazeed  take part in the First Expedition to Constantinople? :    Now, let us be sure, when did Muslims attack Constantinople for the first time and in which expedition did Eazeed participate.

1.   Constantinople was first attacked by Hadhrat Ameer Mu'awiyah (May Allah SWT be well pleased with him) in 32 Hizri. Hafidh Ibn Kathir (R.A.) writes : "Hadhrat Ameer Mu'awiyah (May Allah SWT be well pleased with him) attacked Rome in A.H. 32 and fought battles after battles till he reached the city of Constantinople." Ref: Bidayah wan Nihayah, Vol 7, Pg No. 179. It is also written in Tarikh Kamil, Vol 3, Pg No. 25..  Yazeed did not participate in this expedition.

2.   The next i.e., second attack Rome was launched in the year 42.(A.H) and Yazeed was not amongst them. It is confirmed in Imam Ibn Al-Athir's Tarikh Al-Kaamil and also in Allama Ibn Khuldun's works as well. Imam Zahabi's Tareekh-Ul-Islam also mentions this. Yazeed did not participate in this expedition.

3.   The next i.e., third attack was made in 43 (A.H) led by Bausar Bin Abi Artha who attacked Rome and went right up to Constantinpole.Yazeed did not participate in this expedition.

4.   The 4th batch of troops went in 44  or 46(A.H). The commander was Abdur Rahman Khalid Bin Waleed, son of the great general in Islam Hazrat Khalid Bin Waleed (R.A.)  Together with Bausar Bin Abi Artha they led the first naval expedition in Islam against Rome. Yazeed did not participate in this expedition.

 5.       The 5th batch of troops to go to Rome was led by Hazrat Abdurahman Al Qaymi Al-Antha who was its commander.
Yazeed did not participate in this expedition.

5.   The 6th batch of troops went in 49 (A.H.) and the commander was again Hazrat Malik Bin Hubairah and Hazrat Fazala Bin Ubair was also the commander and from his hands the city of Ceasar in Rome was conquered and the booty was won.Yazeed did not participate in this expedition.

6.   In 49 A.H. 7th Batch made expedition to Constantinople  and a Sahabi participated in it named Yazeed Bin Shajara Ar-Rahaani who was from Damasccus and not Yazeed Bin Muawiah.Yazeed did not participate in this expedition.

      8.   The 8th batch of troops made expedition to Constantinople in 50 (A.H) which mention's the name of Yazeed Bin Muawiya.


      The crux of the question is in which expedition did Yaazid take part? History provides four opinions in this regard:

1.   Eaazid  participated in the battle of Rome in 49 A.H. and he reached Constantinople.  Bidayah wan Nihayah, Vol 8, Pg. No. 34,narrates: In 49 A.H. Yazid bin Mu'awiyah attacked the kingdom of Rome and reached Constantinople.

2.   Yazid participated in the siege of 50 A.H. Umdatul Qari, Vol 5, Pg No 558, narrates: "Muslims reached Constantinople in this attack and laid siege to it and Yazid was the commander on the behalf of his father."

3.   Yazid participated in the attack of 52 A.H. Imam Badruddin 'Aini, noted Commentator of Sahih Bukhari, preferred this opinion and said that this opinion is to be preferred that Yazid participated in the 52 A.H.attack of Constantinople.Umdatul Qari, Vol 10, Kitab ul Jihad, Pg No. 244.

  4.  Hadhrat Mu'awiyah (R.A.) sent Yazid in 55A.H. to attack Constantinople, as given in Al Isabaa fi marifati Sahabah.
   No evidence  proves that Yazid was part in the first siege of Constantinople, because Constantinople had been attacked by Muslim Muzahids  multiple times before it. Claiming that yazid participated under the Hadhrat Abdur Rahman bin Khalid bin Walid (R.A.) and is therefore forgiven  is a fabrication as it is not supported by any of the books of  Hadith, Rijal or History.

    Yazeed was sent to Battlefield as punishment by Muawiya (R.A.) :    Imam Bukhari narrates in his Sahih that," Verily, acts are rewarded according to the intentions." Zakir Naik and Ahle Bidah should disclose to the Muslims  the  reality and true nature of their hero Yazeed's participation in Zihaad to Constantinople. Why do they suppress its backdrop ? why do they  hinder and conceal the truth? Let us be acquainted with the panorama of history on this issue and InshaAllah haque and batil will become  more vivid  and dazzling.

        Yazeed who partcipated in the 7th expedition, de facto, did not participate spontaneously and sincerely. He was sent to the battlefield as the punishment by his father by Holy Sahabi Sayedina  Aamir Muwiya (R.A.) due to his hypocricy and arrogance. All history books record this incident. Ibn Atheer records it in Tarikh Kamil Vol 3, Pg No. 314, under the incidents of 49 and 50 A.H.   Tabari records it inTarikh al-Rusul wa al-Muluk or Tarikh at-Tabari, Published By Cairo: Dar al-Ma'arif. Allama Badruddin Ayini, the noted Commentator of Sahih Bukhari writes:

           "Hadhrat Ameer Mu'awiyah (R.A.) sent a huge army to Rome in 50 A.H. Hadhrat Sufyan bin 'Auf (R.A.) was appointed as the commander of the army and Yazid was ordered to go with the army. Yazid started making excuses, cited illness and did not go. Hadhrat Ameer Mu'awiyah (R.A.) also did not go. In this journey, the Mujahideen faced hunger, thirst and a host of other difficulties. When Yazid was told about this, he recited some couplets, in of other difficulties. When Yazid was told about this, he recited some couplets, in which he said:

"I don't care about the fever, difficulties which the army faces at the

Firqodona (place name), at der murran,

I am sitting on a high mattress and Umme

Kulthoom (Yazid's wife) is with me."

. When Hadhrat Ameer Mu'awiyah came to know of this, he said with an oath, that Yazid should be definitely sent to the
commander Hadhrat Sufyan bin 'Auf (May Allah SWT be well pleased with him), so that he understands the difficulties of the Mujahideen."  Ref : Umdatul Qari Vol 10, Kitab Ul Jihad.  

                   Humble Challenge and Appeal to Zakir Naik : Brother Zakir Naik ! There is not a single hadeeth in Sahih Bukhari where it is said that “those people who will conquer Constantinople they will go heaven and Yazeed was the commander". This is a white lie. If you can roduce such hadeeth where it is mentioned that those people who will conquer Constantinople they will go heaven and Yazeed was the commander", you will be rewarded Rs ten lakh instantly.We challenge you to produce it. We shall accept your standpoint. Otherwise , make tawba for telling lie in the name of sahih Bukhari and desert firqa-parasti.  our  Holy Prophet said, “ The one who attributes lie to me has his place in Zahannam [ Sahih Bukhari – Vol 01 – Page 41 – Hadeeth No 106 ] .

                         Wa maa alaina illal balaag.
