Demolition of the Idol Al-‘Uzza. After conquering Makkah, the Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) dispatched Khaalid ibn Al-Waleed, may Allah be pleased with him, to knock down the idol of Al-‘Uzza. It was a house in Nakhlah that Quraysh, Kinaanah and Mudhar would sanctify. Khaalid, may Allah be pleased with him, demolished the house and killed a priestess, called Al-‘Uzza, who was serving the house – 8 A.H.

-  Demolition of the Idol Suwaa'. The Prophet  sallallaahu  `alayhi  wa  sallam ( may  Allah exalt his mention ) sent ‘Amr ibn Al-‘Aas, may Allah be pleased with him, to demolish the idol Suwaa‘, which belonged to Banu Huthayl ibn Ilyaas. He destroyed it and found its inner cabinet empty – 8 A.H.
- The Release of Imaam Ahmad ibn Hanbal from Prison. This took place during the Fitnah (tribulation) of “the Creation of the Quran” that was promoted by the Caliph Al-Ma’moon, who forced people to say that the Quran was created. Some scholars remained steadfast on the truth, including Imaam Ahmad ibn Hanbal. After the death of Al-Ma’moon, the Caliph Al-Mu'tasim followed the same course and tortured Imaam Ahmad severely. On the 25th of Ramadan, he was released from prison – 241 A.H.
- The Death of the poet, man of letters, and linguist Abu Al-Fadhl Ahmad ibn Muhammad Al-Maydaani An-Naysaaboori. He accompanied Imaam Al-Waahidi, the scholar of Tafseer, and learnt from him. He wrote excellent books, such as Al-Amthaal, which has never been equaled, and As-Saami fil-Asaami. He also heard Hadeeths from scholars – 518 A.H.
- The Battle of ‘Ayn Jaalut (Ain Jalut). After the Tartars' massive invasion of the Muslim lands and the gruesome massacres they carried out, Muslims managed to stop their invasion after a battle launched between the two parties at ‘Ain Jalut (Spring of Goliath) located between Bisan and Nablus. The Muslims' motto in this battle was, "Waa Islamaah (O our Islam)," and Muslims attained victory under the command of the great leader Qutuz – 658 A.H.
