The Battle of al-Harrah is a battle fought at al-Harrah in 683 CE, then lying to the northeast of Medina. The battle was fought against the armies of Yazid ibn Muawiyah by Abdullah ibn Zubayr and his allies, the people of Medina and several notable Sahabas, many of whom were killed in the battle. It is the second most infamous battle during the reign of Yazid bin Muawiyah, the 2nd Umayyad Caliph.When Yazid ibn Muawiyah became Umayyad Caliph in 680 CE he faced two major crises. First was the dissent of Husayn ibn Ali and the other was the revolt of Abdullah ibn Zubayr. Husayn ibn Ali a.s rejected the legitimacy of Yazid ibn Muawiyah as Caliph, which ultimately led to his martyrdom in the Battle of Karbala on October 10, 680. This event further deepened the schism between Sunni and Shia denominations
