  • The condemnation of Asma Bint Abu Bakr of Hajjaj's statement about her son:

    When Hajjaj ibn Yusuf ath-Thaqafi killed Abdullah ibn az-Zubayr he came to the mother Asma bint Abu Abkr as-Siddiq and defended his slaying of the son of az-Zubayr by allegating his violation of the sanctity of the Haram had no option but to refute his allegation and make clear that he had spoken a lie against her son.

    Imam al-Hakim related from Abu as-Siddiq that he said, 'When al-Hajjaj gained victory over ibn az-Zubayr and killed him and mutilated his body he then came to the mother of Abdullah, Asma bint Abu Bakr, she said, "How can you ask my permission to enter when you have killed my son?"[1]

    He said, "Indeed you son comitted violation in the Haram of Allah, so I killed him as a sinful violator so that Allah may make him taste severe punishment and what was done to him, was done to him."

    So she said, "You have lied! O Enemy of Allah and enemy of the Muslims! By Allah you killed one engaged in Salah and fasting, a guardian (of this religion), one respectful of his parents, and a protector of this religion. And if you have spoiled his wordly life then he has spoiled your after-life. And the Messenger of Allaah salAllahu `alayhi wa sallam told us that two liars will come from Thaqif, the last worse than the first and he is the killer. And you are surely him O Hajjaj!." [2]

    [1]In Sahih Muslim, 'then (after the killing of ibn az-Zubayr) al-Hajjaj sent to his mother Asma bint Abu Abkr and she refused to come to him. So the messenger came back to her relaying, "You will come to me or else I will send to you someone who will drag you by your hair"
    He said she refused and said, "I will not come to you until you send someone who will drag me by my hair!"
    So he said, "Give me my sandals." So he took his shoes and hastened until he came to her..'

    Imam al-Hakim, 'This hadith has an authentic chain though both of them did not relate it.' (Previous source 4/527). A-Hafith ath-Thahabi agreed with him (see atTalkhis 4/527). Imam Ahmad related a similar hadith (see al-Musnad 6/351 & 6/352). The source of this story is found in Sahih Muslim, The book of Virtues of the Sahabah, [Chapter] Mention of the Liar of Thaqif and its Destroyer, No. 229, 4/1971-1972).
