Hitti said, "Muawiyah's reign witnessed not only the consolidation but the extension of the territories of Caliphate." That is, "during the reign of Muawiyah, the Muslim empire was not only strengthened and consolidated, but also its territorial boundaries were expanded."

Muawiyah's Conquest of North Africa/Western Conquest

At that time, the Arabs used to call the Nile Valley of Nim as 'Egypt', modern Libya and Tunisia as 'Africa' and the vast area between present day Algeria and Morocco as 'Al-Maghrib'. During the reign of Caliph Omar, Egypt was first conquered by the Muslim forces and they started entering Africa. During the reign of Hazrat Osman (ra) the Arab armies advanced as far as Baqa, and the Byzantine Emperor Gregory, not far from the ancient Carthage, was defeated by the Muslims and promised their annual tribute. The Muslims then returned to their homeland with six armies at Barka and Jabili. But the Ramans recaptured the area and began to persecute the Barkars. As a result, the Ba'athists sought the help of Amr, the ruler of Egypt. After informing the Caliph, he sent Muslim Alexander Okaba bin Nafi to Africa with 10,000 troops. Okaba bin Nafi overcame all obstacles and brought the country back under Arab rule. In 60 AD, Okaba founded a famous city in southern Tunisia called Kairayan; Which later became the capital of Africa. As it moves west, the Atlantic Ocean slows it down. P.K. Hitti said, "Uqbah, who is said by tradilions to have advanced until the waves of the Atlantic stopped his horse, He didn't stop until then. " As a result, Okaba lamented, "O Allah, if this vast sea had not been a hindrance to me today, I could have conquered more lands and proclaimed the glory of your religion and name." He was killed in a joint attack by the Raemans, and as a result, Kairayan was recaptured by the barbarians.

Muawiyah also had considerable success in expanding the state in the East. Muawiyah forced the Muslims to pay taxes when the tribes refrained from paying taxes in the conquered border areas of Persia and Afghanistan. He also suppressed a similar revolt in Herat in 62 AD. Two years later, he conquered Kabul, Ghazni, Balkh, Kandahar and other areas. Bukhara was conquered by one of the sons of Ziad in 64 AD and Samarkand and Tirmiz in 7 AD.

Muawiyah's son Yazid took part in the expedition. Imam Hussein also served as one of the commanders of this war? The Prophet's (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) hint to the Arabs to conquer this city is the root cause of this campaign. But in the end the operation of the Muslim forces was successful due to lack of food, epidemic, illness of Yazid etc. A few years later, a second naval expedition was sent by Muawiyah. The expedition lasted for seven years (64-60 AD), which is why it is called the 'Seven Years' War'. Muawiyah's campaign also failed.
