Thus, the people of Sham got to know the cruelty of Yazeed and his slyness, and the Sham community became like the boiling lava against the oppressing regime. So, Yazeed thought seriously of a way to get rid of the problem of the presence of Ahlu El-Bayt in Sham. Yazeed ordered Al-Noueman Bin Bashir to prepare the captives with everything they needed, and he asked him to send with them a good and trustworthy person from Sham to accompany them to Medina.
