DIVINE ULTIMATUM OF WAR

The Abbaasi Khalifah Mansur harboured great enmity for Hadhrat Sufyaan Thauri (rahmatullah
alayh) who was very strident in his duty of Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy Anil Munkar. In proclaiming the
Haqq, he did not spare the Khalifah. When the Khalifah had set off to Makkah for Hajj, he was
informed that Hadhrat Sufyaan Thauri (rahmatullah alayh) was in Makkah. Khalifah Mansur
ordered him to be arrested and hanged.
The gibbet was set up for the execution of Hadhrat Sufyaan Thauri. At that time, Hadhrat
Sufyaan was in Musjidul Haraam in the company of Hadhrat Fudhail Bin Iyaadh (rahmatullah
alayh) and Hadhrat Sufyaan Bin Uyainah (rahmatullah alayh). Well-wishers urged him to go into
concealment. Hadhrat Sufyaan Thauri (rahmatullah alayh) went to the Multazam. Standing at the
Ka’bah, he exclaimed: “I take an oath by the Rabb of the Ka’bah? Mansur will not be able to enter
Makkah Mukarramah.” Mansur was in close proximity. He had already reached Jabal Hajoon on
the outskirts.
As the Khalifah began to move ahead, his horse slipped. Mansur fell and died on the spot.
Hadhrat Sufyaan Thauri (rahmatullah alayh) emerged from Musjidul Haraam. He performed
Mansur’s Janaazah Salaat.
In a Hadith Qudsi, Allah Ta’ala says: “He who becomes the enemy of My Wali, I give him notice
of war.”
