Dr. Tahir Ul Qadri clarifies the distortions and misrepresentations made by supporters of Yazid on the hadith of Qustuntanya. As the Prophet SAW said that those who take part in the battle of Qustuntanya will go to Jannah. Followers of Yazid say he took part in that battle so he should not be cursed as a 'jahanami' but should be praised as a 'jannati'. This claim is totally false because Yazid did not even take part in the battle of Qustuntanya. As he refused to go and take part in that battle, he was sent by his father as punishment, afterwards, to go and take part, but by that time the Muslim army had finished its job and had left Qustuntanya, so Yazid was not part of that army. This is also discussed in detail by Shaykh-ul-Islam among other major issues regarding the fate of Yazid and those who follow and praise him.
