The will of Abdul Malik bin Marwan before his death .. what the Islamic heritage says

Abdul Malik bin Marwan died in the year 86 AH, and he held the position of Caliph of the Muslims for about 21 years, so what does the Islamic heritage say?

The book, The Beginning and the End, says under the title “Then I entered the year eighty-six.”

It was said: When Abd al-Malik Ibn Marwan was dying, his son al-Walid came in and wept and said to him: Abd al-Malik, what is it? Walid: Fear God in what I appoint you, and keep my will, and look at my brother Muawiyah, have mercy on him, and keep me in him, and look at my brother Mohammed, therefore he commanded him on the island and must do not separate him from it, and look at our cousin Ali bin Abbas, for he has been cut off from us by his love and counsel, and he has descent and right. Separate his grace, and know his judgment. And look upon Al-Hajjaj bin Yusuf, and honor him: for he is the one that hath made the land for you, he hath overcome the enemies, he hath saved the kingdom for you, he hath scattered the Kharijites, you and your brothers forbade to have division, and to be children of one mother and to be free in war.His companion, and he tends hearts with love, and humbles tongues with beautiful remembrance.

Indeed, when things come together, they are broken * with anger and refutation of refutation

Glory is not broken, even if it is wasted * Breaking and weakening is for the wasted

And he said, If I die, invite the people to thy promise of faithfulness, who refuseth, then the sword, and thou shalt do good to thy sisters, so honor them and love them to – Fatimah, and he gave her the earrings of Mary and the orphan – then he said: O God, protect me in it. Omar bin Abdul Aziz married her, who is her cousin.

And when he was dying, he heard a washing of clothes, and he said, What is this? They said: He is a washing machine, so he said: I wish I was a washing machine, earning day by day what I live with, and not the caliphate. Then he acted and said:

For the rest of my life I lived in the king for a while * and the world owed me the fall of the waters

And I gave the reds the money, the rule and the ban * but I delivered all the mighty kings

So the one who made me happy became like a dream that went through the long living times

I wish I had not sought the king for a night, and I did not seek the pleasure of a bright life

These verses were sung at his death by Muawiyah bin Abi Sufyan.

Abu Mushar said: In his mortal illness, Abd al-Malik was told: How are you? He said: Seek me, as God Almighty said: {And you came to us alone, as we first created you, and you left behind what We gave you.} [الأنعام: 94] . Saeed bin Abdul-Aziz said: When Abdul-Malik was dying, he ordered the doors of his palace to be opened. When they opened it, he heard a palace in the valley saying, ‘What is it?’ They said: Short, therefore he said: I wish I was short, living from the work of my hands, and when Saeed bin Al-Musayyib reached his word, he said: Blessed be his God, who leaves them to us fled when they died, and we do not flee to them. And he said, as death approached, he began to regret and mourn, and struck his hand on the head, saying: I wish I had gained my strength from day to day and kept myself busy in worship and obedience to my Lord , the Almighty. Others said: When death drew near, he called his sons and commanded them, and then said: Blessed be his God who asks no one of his creation, young or old, and then sings:

So is there Khaled, or did we perish * and is death jealous for the rest?

It is said that he said: Lift me up, that they may lift him up until he can smell the air, and he said: O world, how good are you! Your length is short, and many of you are mean, and we were arrogant about you. Then suggest these two verses:

If you discuss, then your discussion, O Lord

Or transcend, then You are a forgiving Lord * for the sinner of his sins is like dust

They said: His death was Friday in Damascus, and it was said on Wednesday and it was said on Thursday, in the middle of Shawwal in the year eighty-six, and his son Al-Walid, the heir to his throne after him , prayed for him, and he was sixty years old when he died.

Abu Ma’shar said it and Al-Waqidi certified it, and it was said sixty-three years. Al-Madaini said, and it was fifty-eight. He was buried in Bab al-Jabiya al-Saghir. Ibn Jarir said: He named his children and wives including Al-Walid, Suleiman, Marwan the Elder, Daraj and Aisha, and their mother was Waleeda bint Al-Abbas bin Juz ‘bin Al-Harith bin Zuhair bin Judhaima bin Rawaha bin Rabi’ah bin Mazen bin Al-Harith bin Qati’ah bin Abs bin Baghid, Yazid and Marwan Al-Asghar. Muawiyah Darg and Umm Kulthum and their mother were Atika bint Yazid bin Muawiyah bin Abi Sufyan, and Hisham and his mother Umm Hisham Aisha – as Al-Madaini said – bint Hisham bin Ismail Al-Makhzoumi and Abu Bakr, whose name is Bakr , and his mother is Aisha bint Musa bin Talha bin Ubaid Allah Al-Taymi, and Al-Hakam Darg and his mother is Umm Ayyub bint Amr bin Othman bin Affan die Umayyad, and Fatima and her mother Al-Mughirah bint Al-Mughirah bin Khalid bin Al-Aas bin Hisham bin Al-Mughira Al-Makhzumi. Abdullah, Muslima, Mundhir, Anabsa, Muhammad, Saad al-Khair and al-Hajjaj had mothers of several children, and the total of his children were nineteen men and women.

The period of his caliphate was twenty-one years, of which nine years involved Ibn al-Zubayr, thirteen years and three and a half months independent of the caliphate alone.

His judge was Abu Idris al-Khulani, his scribe Ruh ibn Zinba ‘, his guardian Yusuf his master, the owner of the treasury and the rob Qabisah ibn Dhu’ayb, and on his police was Abu al-Za’izah, and we called his workers in the past.

Al-Madaini said: He had other wives: Shaqra bint Salamah bin Halbis Al-Ta’i, the daughter of Ali bin Abi Talib, and Umm Abiha bint Abdullah bin Jaafar.
