This may sound like a very odd question.. but i picked up two history books
and found two very different dates for the battle of Yarmouk
Khulafa-e-raashideen by Darul Qasim publications states it happenned in 15AH
whereas History of Islam by Darrussalaam Publications states 13AH
...urm can anyone explain the diff?
or mayb show which one is the correct date, if thats possible?

http://history.al-islam.com/time.asp?nStart=15 states that the Battle of Yarmuk took place in 15 AH.
سنة 15هـ - 636/637م : تتابع الفتوحات الإسلامية
(وقعة اليرموك )
There seems to be a difference of opinion, but the above view is shared by the author of the following:
The letter which Umar wrote to Abu Ubaidah, appointing him the commander of the army, reached him while a great battle was in progress, and Abu Ubaidah withheld this information from Khalid until after the battle had been won. This battle could not have been that of Ajnadein, which was fought-and on this there is universal agreement-in Jamadi-ul-Awwal, 13 Hijri. Some writers have quoted sources saying that the event took place at Yaqusa. But this could not be correct either, as Yaqusa was just a one-day battle. Some who consider that the year of the Battle of Yarmuk was 13 Hijri have said that the letter reached Abu Ubaidah during this battle. This too is incorrect, as the Battle of Yarmuk was fought in 15 Hijri.

Subhnallah just realised i made a tonne of mistakes wen i posted the orignal question. All corrected now alhamdulilah
Hmmm Jazakallah Khair...
I was going to to go for the 15AH, just cuz i dont particularly trust the salafi translations (darrusalam)... too much fidling about going on.
I think I'll stick with 15Ah inshallah
Once again Jazakallah Khair
