In 651, the Arabs had invaded Khorasan, and by 652, they had conquered most of the region. However, in 654, the Karenids under Karin, along with the Hephthalites under Nezak Tarkan, made an insurrection against the Arabs. The rebellion spread in Herat, Badghis and Quhistan, and later they even managed to repel the Arabs from Nishapur and Balkh. During the same period the people of Zarang rebelled, however, the Arabs under Abdullah ibn Aamir managed to suppress the rebellion and kill Karin.
