Cypress Occupied


Hazrat Muawia Radiallahu anhu was the Governor of Syria under Hazrat Uthmaan Radiallahu anhu. Antolia was still under Byzantium. Skirmishes with the Byzantine troops were common.

In the year 26 A.H., Hazrat Muawia led an army into Antolia and took over the City of Amuria. He wanted to advance, but troop movement by land seemed difficult. So he had to stop.

Hazrat Muawia Radiallahu Anhu now turned his attention to the Mediterrean. He saw the importance of the islands in this sea and made plans to occupy them.

Hazrat Muawia Radiallahu anhu had a strong liking for the sea. He foresaw that Islam could not be strong without a powerful navy. He decided to prepare a strong navy. During Hazrat Umar's Radiallahu anhu Caliphate he had put this plan before the Caliph. Hazrat Umar was opposed to sea fighting and did not think it wise to risk the lives of people in sea-battles. So he did not approve of Hazrat Muawia's plan. When Hazrat Uthmaan Radiallahu anhu became Caliph, Hazrat Muawia again took up the question of the navy with the Caliph. Hazrat Uthmaan Radiallahu anhu agreed to Hazrat Muawia's Radiallahu anu plan on condition that no one was to be forced against his will to take part in the naval campaign.

In 28. A.H. , Hazrat Muawia Radiallahu anhu prepared a fleet of ships. The Governor of Egypt joined him with his own fleet and the two fleets jointly invaded Cyprus.
The people of the island fought bravely but had to give in at last. They made peace with the Muslims. The vitors undertook to defend the island. In return they got the use to use the island as a military base.

Taken from: Hazrat Osman (Third Caliph of Islam)
by Prof. Fazl Ahmad.
