In praise of Hazrat Yazid ibn Muawiya – by Deobandi and Salafi-Wahhabi Ulema

The following are a few examples of some prominent Salafi-Wahhabi (Ahle Hadith) and Deobandi scholars of Saudi Arabia, India and Pakistan who claim themselves to be Sunni Muslims (Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat) and treat Yazid ibn Muawiyah as a legitimate Caliph and Hazrat Imam Hussain as a rebel or treat the tragedy of Karbla as a battle between two princes (of the Umayyad and Hashemite clans). In our view, such enemies of Imam Hussain (a.s.) do not represent majority of Sunni Muslims who love and respect Prophet Muhammad’s Ahle Bait (a.s.).

A Deobandi scholar from the Markazi Dar-ul-Uloom, Banori Town – Karachi, in his book “The Life of Yazeed”, calls him “Ameer ul-Momineen” and writes a whole poem in praise of Yazid:

Dr. Zakir Naik’s further defence of Yazid

10th Muharram is an Eid day, Muharram is a month of happiness. A student of Zakir Naik’s IRC claims:

Dr Israr Ahmed (Salafi-Deobandi) of Pakistan exonerates Yazid from Imam Hussain’s murder

Javed Ahmed Ghamidi exonerates Yazid

Despite his non-Takfeeri approach to Shias and Sufis/Barelvis (something which distinguishes him from Takfir Salafists and Takfiri Deobandis, e.g. Ihsan Elahi Zaheer, Manzoor Nomani, Haq Nawaz Jhangvi etc), Javed Ghamidi generally negates almost all traditions in which Ahl-e-Bait (family) of the Prophet have been praised. His views on the great sacrifice of Imam Hussain in Karbala are completely in line with those of Zakir Naik, Israr Ahmed, Abdul Aziz bin Baz, Ibn Taymiyyah etc, although he is not as transparent. He considers Imam Hussain as a leader of an illegitimate rebellion and exonerates Yazid from the murder of Imam Hussain and other members of the Prophet’s family. He blames Ibn Ziyad for Hussain’s murder and terms the entire incident as an ‘afsosnak hadsa’ “a regrettable accident”. This apolitical, acontextual assessment of Karbala is in stark contrast with analyses of Karbala by other Sunni and Shia scholars who support Imam Hussain’s just opposition (Qayam) to Yazid’s illegitimate rule.

Ghamidi claims that: “Imam Hussain had reviewed his decision of opposition to Yazid; he wanted to move away from Karbala and even wanted to go to Yazid but Ibn Ziyad’s army did not allow that”.

Ghamidi rationalizes Muawiya’s mutiny (baghawat) against a legitimate ruler (Hazrat Ali, the Khalifa-e-Rashid). He presents false neutrality between Hazrat Ali and Muaviya and exonerates Muaviah under the cover of Ijtihadi Ghalti (an error of judgement) and lack of information. Of course, he will not use similar logic to exonerate Abu Jehl or Abu Lahb.

Salafi-Wahhabi and Deobandi followers of Yazid

Alternative Sunni perspective

Majority of Sunni Muslims, including Hanafis (Barelvi, Deobandi) and Salafis (Ahl-e-Hadith), treat Yazid and his father as a deviation from the Khilafat-e-Rashida (Rashidun Caliphs), and support Imam Hussain’s stance against Yazid and Hazrat Ali’s stance against Muawiya. They consider all those who either exonerate or justify actions of Yazid and his father against Hazrat Ali, Imam Hassan and Imam Hussain as Nasibis, i.e., enemies of the Ahl-e-Bait (family) and descendants (Aal) of the Prophet Muhammad.
