According to an authentic hadith by ImÄm SadÄ«q (pbuh), âAfter SufyanÄ« occupies the safe zones [Damascus, Homs, Palestine, Chalcis ad Belum [in Halab]and Jordan], he will run for nine monthsâ¦â (Al- Ghaybah, TÅ«sÄ«, Ibid, 452)
After attacking Iraq, SufyanÄ« will learn ImÄm MahdÄ« (mgehr) is in Medina [Although in a semipublic way, ImÄm (mgehr) will be present stay there, before the Emergence.] Therefore, he [SufyanÄ«] will send an army to Medina, in order to capture and kill His Excellency.
[In addition to ImÄm SadÄ«q (pbuh)], ImÄm BaqÄ«r (pbuh) stated:
SufyanÄ« will send an army to Medina. [On the other side], MahdÄ« (mgehr) will set off to Mecca from there. They will report SufyanÄ«âs commander-in-chief, âHis Excellency have set off Meccaâ¦ (Al- Ghaybah, NuËmani, Chapter 14, Ibid 67)
In the narrations, there is nothing about the resistance of the ruler of á¸¤ijÄz, against SufyanÄ«âs army!
