'Oman up to the end of the sixth century/ when Chosroes
Parwiz sent a large army into Yemen under Wahraz, who
subdued that country, and also annexed el-Mahrah, Ha-
dhrarnaut, 'Oman, and el-Bahrein to the Persian dominions.
Those provinces, however, did not continue long under a
foreign yoke, for about a.d . 630, Muhammad, who by that
time had consolidated his power by the subjugation of Temen
and Ncjd, dispatched one 'Arm* on an embassy to two
brothers, Jaifar and 'Abd, the sons of Julanda, of the el-
Azd tribe, who then ruled over 'Oman. He summoned them
to embrace Islam, which they appear to have readily adopted,
by accepting as divine the mission of Muhammad and aban
doning their idolatry. Among the many insurrections
which broke out on the accession of Abu-Bekr, Muhammad's
successor, was that of Oman, where an Azdite named Dhu-'t-
Taj-Lakit, who prior to Islam had sought to supplant prince
Julanda, set himself up to be a prophet, and having gained
many partisans obliged the Muslims and their chiefs, Jaifar
and 'Abd, to take refuge in the mountains. Hadhramaut,
el-Mahrah, and el-Bahrein revolting about the same time,
Abu-Bekr dispatched several of his generals against them.
'Ikrimah, who had been engaged on similar service in el-
Yamamah, having formed a junction with'Arfajah-bin-Hartha-
mah, a Himyarite, and Hudhaifah-bin-M uhsin, an Azdite,
proceeded towards a locality called Rijam. 3 The Muslim
commanders having apprised Jaifar and 'Abd of their
presence, the latter left their mountain retreat and, together
with their followers, took up a position at bohar, where
'Ikrimah and his colleagues soon joined them. Dzu'-t-laj-
Lakit, on the other hand, massed his adherents at Daba, 0
1 El-Beladzory, speaking of a period not long anterior to Islam, says:
" The el-Azd were the principal inhabitants of Om&n, but there was a
large population besides them." Fut&h-el-BiddAn, p. 7(5.
a Probably " Riyam," or the Jebel -Akhdar, still the abode of a tribe
of that name. See note 4, p. 57.
3 El-Belsldzory writes this word u Dibba," but el-^ akut and et-labary
spell it as above. For the position of the place see note 1, p. -4.
