ibn taymiyya mentioned belief of a some people regarding him in his book “wasia tul kubra”

he said

“some of them believe that he was a just imam, hadi, mehdi (that is guide and guided), and he was amongst companions, rather one of the great companions, and he was amongst waliullahs; and may be some of them had this belief that he was amongst prophets”

[wasia tul kubra, page 103]

what is surprising is how much propaganda must have been done in regards to yazeed that he was taken to such heights
