Imam Abu al-Faraj ibn al-Jawzi (r.a.) on Yazid ibn Mu'awiyah's Rule

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

A group of scholars in Baghdad asked Imam Abu al-Faraj ibn al-Jawzi (r.a.) about Yazid.  He responded, “What do you say about a man who ruled for three years; in the first he murdered al-Husayn, in the second he sacked Madina for three days, and in the third he assaulted the Ka’bah with catapults until it was destroyed?”

They said, “Verily, we curse him!”

Imam Abu al-Faraj ibn al-Jawzi (r.a.) said, “So curse him!”
