Abdul Rahman was a commander in time of “Mu’awiya” (Umayyad caliph) and was the governor of Homs (town in Syria). In “Siffin battle” (battle between Imam Ali “p.b.u.h” and Mu’awiya in 657) he fought against Imam Ali. In time of Mu’awiya, #### he also fought against Romans. Finally Mu’awiya killed him by poison in 666 by his Christian doctor, because he was afraid that Abdul Rahman may rule instead of “Yazid” (Mu’awiya’s son).
