Examples from the Web for omayyad
The ruin of the Omayyad empire and the rise of the new dynasty did not take place without mighty convulsions.
By a trick ‛Ali was deposed , and the Omayyad dynasty was established with its capital at Damascus.
In 749 they accomplished a carefully prepared revolution, and the last of the Omayyad Caliphs was hunted down and slain in Egypt.
For a time, after the death of Ali, the Omayyad family was in the ascendant, and for nearly a century they gave rulers to Islam.
So the grievances of Ali were avenged at last, and the Omayyad line passed out of history.
