    1. Al-Khulafaul Umawiyyun: 41-132 AH; 661-750 CE.

      When Ali received the caliphate, he became the fourth caliph after Muhammad. Right from the beginning his reign was beset with problems. The caliph he succeeded, Uthman, had been murdered in office. One relative of Uthman was Mu’awiya Umayyad, and he demanded that Ali produce the murderers. Ali could not, and Mu’awiya accused him of complicity in the murder. Ali was forced to lead an army against Mu’awiya; however, Mu’awiya was the popular governor of Syria, and he was able to raise a considerable army against Ali. The armies fought to a standstill, and Ali was forced into arbitration. Some of his subjects became extremely angry when this happened, claiming that Ali could not stop the war – only God could. One of these subjects killed Ali as he prayed in a Mosque in 661 AD. The caliphate was soon thereafter passed to Mu’awiya.

      The Umayyad were the first to mint coins, such as this gold dinar of the Umayyad Caliph Hishâm(735 AD). When Mu’awiya took office, he brought with him a flurry of changes. His most important changes were as follows:
      He moved the capital north to Damascus.
      He founded Islam’s first dynasty, for he named his son Yazeed his heir.
      He ruled in a more secular manner, and he appointed non-religious advisors.
      He reorganized the government which had broken down during the wars.
      He minted the first coins.
      He changed the official language to Arabic.
      He helped establish an extensive postal system.
      He initiated public works projects, including a rebuilding of the broken canals and irrigation system.
      Exquisite mosques were erected.
