Abd Allāh ibn az-Zubayrʿ

Abd Allāh ibn az-Zubayrʿ

▪ Companion of Muḥammad

born May 624, Medina, Arabia
died November 692, Mecca

      leader of a rebellion against the Umayyad (Umayyad Dynasty) ruling dynasty of the Islāmic empire, and the most prominent representative of the second generation of Muslim families in Mecca, who resented the Umayyad assumption of caliphal authority.

      As a youth Ibn az-Zubayr went on many of the military campaigns that marked the initial expansion of Islām, and in 651 he was nominated by the caliph (the titular leader of the Islāmic empire) ʿUthmān to aid in compiling an official recension of the Qurʾān. Subsequently remaining politically inactive, he took little part in the civil wars that followed the death of ʿUthmān in 656. Resenting the Umayyad victory that was the eventual outcome of the civil wars, he refused to take an oath of allegiance to Yazīd (Yazīd I), the son and heir presumptive of Muʿāwiyah, the first Umayyad caliph. When Yazīd became caliph in 680, Ibn az-Zubayr still refused the oath of allegiance and fled to Mecca. There he secretly gathered an army. Yazīd learned of this and dispatched forces of his own, which besieged Ibn az-Zubayr in Mecca. In 683 Yazīd died, and the besieging army withdrew. Ibn az-Zubayr was left in peace until 692, when the caliph Abd al-Malikʿ sent an army to Mecca to force him to submit. Mecca was again besieged, and Ibn az-Zubayr was killed in the fighting.
