Life of Prophet Mohamed ppuh 14
The Jinn listening to the Quran:
It is reported that while Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him was on his way to Makah from Taef, he rose to pray in the night. A group of Jinn passed by him, and they stayed to listen to the Quran. Then they went to their people to tell them about what they saw and heard, and advising their people to believe. Allah the Highest sent Quran about them, and telling Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him and the Muslims about them in Sorat Al-Jinn saying: “SAY: IT WAS REVEALED TO ME THAT A GROUP OF THE JINN LISTENED, THEN THEY SAID: “WE HAVE HEARD AN AMAZING QURAN * WHICH GUIDES TO THE TRUTH, AND WE BELIEVED IN IT, AND WE WILL NOT TAKE ANY PARTNER WITH OUR LORD * AND OUR ALMIGHTY LORD DID NOT TAKE A FEMALE PARTNER OR A SON * …………..” (S: 72)
Gabriel came with the angel of the mountains and telling Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him that if he wishes he will make the two great mountains outside Makah collapse on Makah. Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him said to him not to do that, for he hoped that there will come from them offspring who worship Allah the Highest with not partners. Thanks to Allah the Highest for the patience of his prophet, for there came from them and their offspring those who worship Allah the Highest alone.
Speaking to Hajj groups:
Groups from the different Arab tribes used to go to Makah on the Hajj season every ear. They used to camp together in various places (groups from different countries still do this until now) Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him started going to them to tell them about Islam and recite the Quran, asking them to join the Faith and to help him against the prosecution of the disbelievers. He would promise them if they do, a great reward in this life and the Hereafter. In many times, Allah’s messenger’s uncle used to follow him to tell people that Mohamed prayer and peace upon him is made and lying.
When he spoke to the group from Bano Amer, they were prepared to agree but with one condition, that they be the chiefs and in charge after him, but Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him said: “This belongs to Allah, to do whatever He wishes with it”. They refused to follow him and possibly suffering without such a reward.
When they went back home, they told an old man who could not travel because of his age, and after tell him, the old man put his hand on his head and said: “O Bano Amer, could the situation it be saved or remedied, can we save any part of it. By him who has my soul in his hand, no one from the descendants of Ismail said any thing like that, and it is true. Where were you wisdom then?”
Sowid Ibn El-Samet:
He was a man from Yathrib (Medina) known for his decency, honour and wisdom, and he was also a poet. He went to Makah on Omrah or Hajj and he met with Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him who spoke to him about Islam. Sowid said: “May be you have something similar to what I have?” He said: “What do you have?” Sowid said: “The sheets of Loqman (with his wisdom)”. He read it to Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him who said: “These are good words, but what have is better, it is Quran, Allah the Highest sent down to me, it has guidance and light” and he recited the Quran to him. Sowid said: “These are good words”.
Sowid returned to Medina, and he died or was killed there before Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon migration to Medina. Some Muslims who knew him believe that he died as a Muslim.
Eyas Ibn Moaz:
Eyas was a young man from Awse. He went along with a group of men of the Awse tribe in Yathrib to Makah, seeking to make an alliance in their fights against the other tribe of Khazrag. When Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him heard about them being in Makah, he went to them and said: “Would you like something better I come to you with?” They asked: “And what is that?” He said: “I am Allah’s messenger, he sent me to all people asking them to worship Allah and take no partners besides him, and he sent me down the Book”; and he told them about Islam and recited them some of the Quran to them.
Eyas who was a young man then said to his people: “O people, By Allah this is better than what we came for”. One of the others took and fistful of sand and throw Eyas, and they all went back to Yathrib (Medina). Eyas died not very long afterwards, and while dying; his people heard his praising and glorifying Allah to the end. No one had any doubt that he died as a Muslim.
Speaking to Bano Bakr:
Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him spoke to the group from the tribe Bano Bakr. They lived next door to the Persian Empire. He spoke to them about Islam and recited them the Quran. He told them that they would take over the land of Persia. But they declined. His uncle Abu Lahab came and told them that Mohamed was insane; Bano Bakr said that they thought so.
Even when some men believed what Mohamed prayer and peace upon him said, the rest will reject him, and stop the others from believing, even using force.
Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him was subjected to a great deal of ridicule and physical harm. On one occasion some one hurt Allah’s messenger’s camel with a stick which made it jump and, and he came of its back.
Mysarah Ibn Masrooq:
Mysarah was one of a group of men Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him spoke to. Mysarah said to them: “By Allah, if we believe in this man and carried him safely to our land, this would be the best opinion, for I swear that his faith will spread widely”. They decided to go to some of the Jews to consult with them; they went to the Jews of Fadk, who had a good description of Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him in their book. The rest of their tribe did not agree to embrace Islam at the time.
During the Last Hajj Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him did, he saw Misarah and knew him, who said: “Allah’s messenger, by Allah I was keen to follow since you came to us on your camel, but Allah meant my Islam to be delayed. Most of those who were with me died, so where are they going Allah’s messenger?” Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him said: “All those who died on other than Islam are in the Fire”. Misarah said: “Thank Allah who saved me” and he became a good Muslim.
The Islam of the Ansar (Supporters) in Yathrib (Medina):
Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him met six men from Yathrib during the Hajj season, by the Aqaba; they were all from Al-Khazrag tribe. He invited them to sit down and speak to them. He told them about Islam and recited the Quran to them. They heard already from the Jews they had in Medina that a prophet is due to appear, they would follow. They said to each other, that this is the prophet they were told about. They accepted Islam and said that there is a great deal of animosity between them and the other tribe in Yathrib, Awse. They hoped that the two tribes will have peace and unity through him. They went back to Medina after having believed.
After going back to Yathrib, they sent to Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him asking for a man who may teach them about their faith, and to teach them the Quran. He sent them Mosaab Ibn Omer who stayed in the House of a man called Asad Ibn Zararah. Mosaab used to lead them in the Salah and teach them the Quran.
(Mosaab was a young man from a very wealthy family in Makah. When he embraced Islam, his parents became very harsh with him, took any money he had, and he became poor. He was the first Ambassador in Islam. He was martyred in the battle of Ohud. He did not have enough cloths to cover him to be buried)
In Medina, Mosaab and the other Muslims went on telling people about Islam, and about Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him, until there was not a family in the Arab tribes of Yathrib which did not hear, or had a Muslim member.
In the next Hajj season, ten men fro Khazrag and two from Awse went to meet with Allah’s messenger prayer and peace upon him. They met with him by the Aqaba and gave their covenant to him. The covenant was called the first Aqaba or the covenant of the women and it says that: “They worship no partners with Allah, do not steal, do not commit adultery, do not kill their children, do not commit a sin we do before us or between our legs, and do not disobey when commanded to do righteous things, if they do, they go to Paradise, and if they do any of the above, then Allah will decide , if He wills, he punishes and if He wills, he may pardon”. (Bukhari & Muslim)
The first Friday prayer in Medina was gathered by Asad Ibn Zararah. Abd El-Rahman Ibn Kaab Ibn Malik said: “I used to lead my father when he went blind. Whenever I took him for the Friday prayer and hears its Azan, he would pray for Asad Ibn Zararah and ask Allah to forgive him. I said to myself that it will be foolish not to ask him why? And he asked his father he pray and ask for forgiveness for Asad Ibn Zararah whenever he hears the Azan for the Friday prayer. He answered: “He was the first man to gather us for the Friday prayer in such and such place”. I asked: “how many were you then?” He said: “Forty men”. (Abu Dawood & Ibn Magah)
(Kaab Ibn Malik is one of the three men Allah the Highest pointed to in the Quran telling us that were forgiven staying behind the mission that went to Tabouk)
Saad Ibn Moaz and Ased Ibn Hadir were the chiefs of their clan each, and were still disbelievers. They decided between them that Ased Ibn Hadir goes to Mosaab Ibn Omir and Asad Ibn Zararah to tell them not to speak to people about Islam. He went to see them carrying his spear and he spoke to them harshly asking them to stop talking to people about Islam in Medina. Mosaab said to him: “Would you sit down and listen, if you like what you hear accept it, and if you do not like I will stop” He sate and Mosaab spoke to him about Islam and recited the Quran to him, and soon they found his face brightening up, and he said: “How good and beautiful these words are?” What does one do when he wants to join this religion?” They said to him: “We bath and purify ourselves and our cloths, then say the testimony (Shahada) then pray two Rakaa” which he did.
Ased went back to Saad Ibn Moaz and his companions, but Saad found his face bright and full of peace, not like someone who was quarreling, he said to his companions: “Ased is back with a different face than the one he went to them with”
Ased said to Saad that he did not find any thing wrong in what they were talking about, and then wanting to get Saad to go and speak to them, he told Saad that he heard that there were some men who wanted to kill Asad; who was a relative Saad. Saad went to see them carrying his spear, and what happened with his friend Ased happened with him, and Saad Embraced Islam.
When Saad went back to his people, and Ased was with them, he looked much happier than when he went. He spoke to them and said that he is not speaking to any of them unless they embrace Islam, and he became a great speaker for Islam.
Saad Ibn Moaz went back to Mosaab and Asad and stayed in Asad house for a while, to learn about Islam and to tell people about it. Islam then spread and entered every household in Medina, except for few who embraced Islam later after the siege of Medina.
