The Omayyad ruler, Omar bin Abdul-Aziz

On 24th of the Islamic month of Rajab in 101AH, the Omayyad ruler, Omar bin Abdul-Aziz, died due to poisoning of food after a reign of three years during which he renounced the oppressive and un-Islamic policies of his predecessors. One of his first acts on becoming caliph was to issue a decree to halt the blasphemous cursing of the Commander of the Faithful, Imam Ali (AS), during Friday prayer sermons – a sacrilegious practice begun by the hardcore heathen, Mu’awiyya ibn Abu Sufyan, who through such acts intended to keep the growing neo Muslim population ignorant of the God-given right to rule of the Prophet’s rightful successor.
He next returned the large tract of Fadak whose income had now swelled to 40,000 dinars to the Ahl al-Bayt, since this was the property of the Prophet’s daughter, Hazrat Fatema Zahra (SA) from whom the first and second caliphs had illegally seized.
He is also credited with various other reforms like abolition of drinking, forbidding public nudity, and elimination of mixed bathrooms for men and women, which the Godless Omayyad caliphs had initiated. He was succeeded by the ungodly Yazid bin Abdul-Malik, who immediately reversed the policies of Omar ibn Abdul-Aziz and again seized Fadak.
