Proof of Yazid ibn Mu'awiyah’s Kufr
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Proof for Yazid’s hatred and vile behaviour can be seen in his summoning ibn Ziyad to Damascus after Karbala and bestowing upon him illustrious gifts and large sums of money, elevating his status, granting him access to his women and making him his intimate boon-companion. One night, after becoming drunk, Yazid ordered his slave-girl to sing but before she began, he recited the verses:
“Pour me a drink that will satisfy my innermost soul!
And fill a large cup like it for ibn Ziyad.
Verily, he is my most intimate companion and I trust him absolutely!
For he realised my deepest goal and struggle!
He killed the Kharijite, the treacherous rebel al-Husayn,
And terrified my enemies and those who envy!”
Imam ibn ‘Aqil (r.a.) said, “Among the many things that reinforce the fact that he was a disbeliever and an apostate, and not merely someone who should be condemned and cursed, are his poetic verses in which he makes his irreligion quite plain.”
There are many other such poems that can be found in his collection of poetry, and as a result, this community should feel nothing but shame for having endured his governance over them.
