Ask for Allah’s protection against the rule of lads
There is a Hadith in Musnad Imam Ahmed.
Translation: It is narrated on the authority of Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be well pleased with him) that the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) said: Ask for Allah’s protection against the beginning of the decade of 60 and against the against the rule of lads. (Musnad Imam Ahmed, Hadith No: 3800)
The interpreter of Sahih Bukhari and the author of Fath Ul Bari, Hafidh Ahmed bin Hajar Asqalani (May Allah shower His Mercy on him), mentions another Hadith on the authority of "Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaiba, and writes:
Translation: The Hadith of Musannaf Ibn Abi Shaiba says that Hadhrat Abu Hurairah (May Allah be well pleased with him) even while passing through markets, used to pray: 'O Allah, let me not reach 60 Hijri and the rule of lads.’
Hafidh Ibn Hajar Asqalani (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) writes after mentioning this Hadith:
Translation: In this Hadith, it is indicated that the first youngster would become a ruler in 60 Hijri. Accordingly this is what happened. Yazid bin Mu‘awiyah occupied the seat of power in this year, stayed on it till 64 Hijri and died.
The interpreter of Sahih Bukhari, Imam Badruddin ‘Aini Hanafi (May Allah shower His mercy on him) specifies what is meant by "the first lad to rule." In ‘Umdat Ul Qari Vol. 16, Pg No. 333, he writes:
Translation: The first lad to rule was Yazid. On him is what he deserves.
It is mentioned in the Hadith, which mention the tribulations close to the Qiyamah,
Translation: Then those who invite towards misguidance will arrive.
In the interpretation of this Hadith, Hadhrat Shah Waliullah (May Allah shower His mercy on him) writes in Hujjatullahil Baligha, Vol. 2, Pg No. 213:
Translation: In Syria, the one who invited towards misguidance is Yazid and in Iraq, Mukhtaar.
Abul Hasanaat Syed Abdullah Shah Naqshbandi Mujaddidi Qadri (May Allah shower His mercy on him) mentions the opinion of Hadhrat Mazhar (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) on the authority of Mirqaat:
Translation: By lads, it is meant those who were after the first 4 Rightly-Guided Caliphs, , i.e. Yazid, Abdul Malik bin Marwan etc. (Explanatory notes, Zujajatul Masabeeh, Vol. 4, Pg No. 228; Mirqatil Mafateeh, Vol. 5, Pg No. 140)
In a very short period of time, Yazid spread extraordinary corruption in the Ummah. He destroyed Madina (from where the world was granted peace); in Makkah, (which has been declared by Allah as a city of peace), he set up cannons and rained stones on the Ka’aba. He denied water to the Prophet’s Family for 3 days in the battle of Karbala. He insulted the Prophet’s Family. He persecuted the family of the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) to no end. He martyred the associates of the Prophet’s Family and he martyred Imam Hussain (May Allah be well pleased with him).
