Battle of Mulayda was the last major battle during the period of the Second Saudi State. Following problems over Zakat and the arrest of the Rashidi leader, Ibn Sabhan, Rashidies planned to end the Saudi State and conquer both Qassim region and Riyadh. Rashidies and their Arab clan allies successfully ended the Second Saudi State, and forced the House of Saud led by Abdul Rahman bin Faisal and their allies to flee.[1]
