    Masa-Allah, This is a blessing day to me to get an overview of historical event chronologically. Many confusions were cleared and many questions were answered, Alhamdulliah. Jajak Allahu Khairan to Dr. Uthman Lateef as well as Alkauthar to represent such a eye-cooling episode. We Muslim are root-less because of not paying attention of our histories, these are the reason most of us are suffering with identity crisis and eventually we are disunited. May Allah inspire us to study our history, Ameen.
