Yaman and Hadramaut restored
Ziyad ibn Labid was the collector of zakat for Hadra­maut and Kindah. On the Prophet's death, Ash'ath ibn Qais turned apostate along with his tribe, and raised the standard of revolt at Hadramaut. Ziyad rallied the loyal tribes and gave him battle, but was defeated and fled to Madinah. From there, he was sent back assisted by Muhajir, but no decisive battle took place. 'Ikrimah, who had in the mean­time put down insurrections at 'Uman and Mahrah, was consequently sent to Hadramaut to reinforce the Muslim troops. Ash'ath was besieged and taken prisoner. He was brought to Madinah where he embraced Islam. In the mean­while, the province of Yaman had also been purged of rebellion.
