|Biographical detail : ||The son of Abdul Malik, the Ummayad Caliph and Wallada (the celebrated poetess).
Before his death Abdul Malik had designated his sons Al Walid and Suleyman as heir apparent. But towards the end of his regime Al Walid wished to appoint his son Abdul Aziz as caliph. But Walid died suddenly and his brother Sulaiman succeeded him. Hajjaj and Musa Bin Nusair had opposed his succession. So when Suleyman came to power he treated Musa Bin Nusair with great severity and recalled him and Tariq Bin Ziyad from Spain, which they had jointly conquered. Since, Hajaj had died, he took the revenge from his son-in-law Muhommad bin Qasim, who had conquered Sindh. He recalled Muhammad bin Qasim from Sindh and sent him to prison where he died. Had he not been so cruel to the conquerors of Spain and Sindh, the history of Muslims could have been different.
