On the other hand, when Hajjaj found out that you think this
about me, he called you in the court and asked.
Did you say such things about me??
So you said yes, of course he is a cruel person.
Hearing this, Hajjaj’s color turned red with anger and
issued orders to kill you. You smiled as you were led out of the court to be

replied that you are smiling because of your stupidity and what Allah is giving
Hajjaj then ordered to sacrifice him in front of me. When
the dagger was placed on his neck, he turned towards the Qiblah and said this
O Allah, my face is towards you, I am satisfied with your
pleasure, this pilgrim is not the owner of death or life.
When Hajjaj heard this, he said, turn his face towards the
Qiblah. When he turned his face away from the Qibla, he said: O Allah, even if
the direction is opposite, He is present everywhere. Your rule is everywhere in
the east and the west. My prayer is that killing me will be his last cruelty,
he will not impose it on anyone after me.
When this sentence was uttered from your tongue, you were killed
along with it and so much blood came out that the court was destroyed. A wise
man said that so much blood comes out when someone smiles happily and is
satisfied with the pleasure of Allah.

with great eloquence and bravery. Hajjaj was the reciter of the Quran. He used

were 88,000 prisoners in his prisons at one time, of which 30,000 were women.
The last killing he did was the killing of Hazrat Saeed bin Jubeer, a great
Tabi and ascetic and pious person.
After killing him, Hajjaj was terrified, he became a
psychotic patient, whenever Hajjaj slept, Hazrat Saeed bin Jubeer would appear
in his dream and hold his leg and say, “O enemy of God, why did you kill
me?” What did I do to you? In response, Hajjaj would say, “What has
happened to me and Saeed?”
Along with this, the Hajj contracted a disease called
zamhriri, in which severe cold would rise from the kidneys and cover the whole
body, he would tremble, rings filled with fire would be brought to him and kept
so close to him. It was said that his skin was burning but he did not feel it.

him.” Hakim said, Your illness is not earthly but heavenly. Seek refuge in

in the grave even after I die. The next day Hajj’s stomach burst and he died.

when He takes account of the oppressor, even the angels tremble with fear of
