The name of who was Abd Al Aziz ibn Saud? During the time of the Rashidids, when the grandson of the great salam Al Faisal, performed the Hajj once every year on a carpet of gold, he was called by his title of “Abd Al Aziz ibn Saad Al-Dahyakhb (King of the treasury)”. According to the source, it was after a meeting with the Qasida and Mu’adh d Shaiba that the two kingdoms decided to make peace. Once in power, they brought stability to the realm and prolonged their rule for more than three decades. What happened during those years is a mystery still today, but one thing is certain; whoever was abd al aziz had a flourishing kingdom.
At the beginning of his reign, the topic of who was and can only be speculated upon. There seems to be a link between the two names; one was a descendent of Qasida and the other was of Abu Layth Al-Saud. The latter was an advisor to the shaikhs and had the responsibility of sending them on rules or pilgrimages.
Was Abd Al Aziz a brother of Abu Layth or a nephew? Some even say that the later was the intended one, but fate dealt the cruel hand. For all we know, Abu Layth died in the wars while Abd Al Aziz continued his journey to the Holy Land.
In Mecca, there was once a merchant by the name of Abdul-Aziz. He was from Banu Mustali, which is located in modern day Mecca. The Banu Mustali Jewelry and Exchange were established during the Mughal period. There was another man by the name of Abdul-Baqir. This merchant was from Banu Hammam al-Rabieh, which is in present day Mecca.
How do we find out about the life of Abu Layth? We can trace his history through the writings of his biographer. According to his biographer, he married Jibla (or Labba), the daughter of Saleh bin Ishmael, and traveled with her to the Islamic lands. The biographer did not mention where they went or how long they were away.
Another of his descendants, Musa bin Sayedh, is also connected to him. The two fought against Mo’aymar, the son of the mujahedeen (males) of Quraishah. The story goes that when Sayedh’s father (Abu Layth) refused to give up Mo’aymar’s bride to marry Mo’aymar, Abu Layth had Sayedh murdered. It is recorded that he returned to Mecca and had this to say: “O people of Islam! Do not ever forget what I say…I am the one who killed Sayid bin Jafar (hesti), my brother in God’s cause, because he refused to join the Mubarak (males) in the path of Allah.
Who was Abdulla bin Hawashili? He is one of the Shi’ahs (reborn). His brother was the commander of the troops in Mecca during the time of the Hajj. The name of his son is Mustafa bin Hawashili. Who was Qasim al-Sakh Manawi? He was a Shi’ah poet, born in Mecca.
He had several followers, and wrote a book entitled Kitab al-Miraj. What was Thumri al-Sakhman? It was the book written by the scholar, Abu Thabit al-Sakhman. He is known to have written other books as well, all of which are considered crucial to the study of Islamic law in general. We may never know who was Abdulla, Mustafa or Qasim al-Sakhman. What we do know is that each of them contributed greatly to the growth of Islamic civilization.
When you think about it, one might be wondering who the “Sheikh” is that we are told had some kind of cure for this disease. Al-Azhar University, situated in what is sometimes referred to as the United Arab Emirates, has produced numerous scholars of all genders and ages. One of these is Mustafa Muhammad al-Sakhman. He is seventy years old, and the father of six children. One of those children is Mustafa bin Hashim al-Sakhman, who is currently serving time in an American prison.
So who was Abdulla bin Hawashili? It is widely accepted that he held the post of Mufti of Morocco. The first mention of his name is in the twelfth century, by one of the wisest of Islamic historians. It says he served as a counselor to the Caliph of Iraq.
Was Mustafa bin Hashim al-Sakhman the right man to ask the question of “Who was Abdulla bin Hawashili?” The answer would seem to be yes. And that is why I have always maintained that the real reason for the query should never be answered. It is incumbent upon all Muslims, men and women, to educate themselves with the true facts of their faith, even if they do not feel inclined to do so.
