Al-`Abbas bin `Abdul-Muttalib (May Allah be pleased with him) said: I was in the company of the Messenger
of Allah (PBUH) on the day of (the battle of) Hunain. Abu Sufyan bin Al-Harith and I did not leave the Messenger
of Allah (PBUH) throughout the battle. The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) was riding on his white mule. When the
Muslims had an encounter with the pagans, Muslims took to their heels. The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) began to
urge his mule towards the disbelievers, holding the bridle of his mule. I was trying to restrain it from going very fast,
and Abu Sufyan was holding the stirrup of the mule of the Messenger of Allah (PBUH). The Messenger of Allah
(PBUH) said, "
O Abbas! Call out the People of As-Samurah [i.e., those people who had made the covenant under
the tree (i.e., Bai`ah Ridwan)]
.'' `Abbas called out at the top of his voice: "Where are the People of As-Samurah.''
`Abbas said: As soon as they heard my voice, they rushed towards the Prophet (PBUH) like a cow turning towards
her calf. They were shouting: "Here we are.'' Soon they began to fight the infidels. Then there was a call for Ansar.
Those who called out to them shouted: "O you the people of Ansar! O you the people of Ansar!'' They ended their
call at Banu Al-Harith bin Al-Khazraj. The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) who was riding on his mule looked at their
fight with his neck stretched forward and he said, "T
his is the time when the fight is raging hot
.'' Then the
Messenger of Allah (PBUH) took pebbles and threw them in the face of the disbelievers. He said, "
By the Rubb of
Muhammad, the disbelievers will be defeated.
'' I continued to watch until I found that their force was subdued and
they began to retreat.
1. Here is the factual proof of the bravery and greatness of the Prophet (PBUH). We see that initially when the
Companions were perturbed and they scattered here and there, he alone continued his march towards the enemy. He
did not feel even the slightest fear or worry. In the end his steadfastness compelled others to return and fight the
2. In fact, they had not receded far. They had got confused for a while. The reason for this confusion was the
continuous and sudden volley of arrows which was quite unexpected for them. However, at the call of Al-`Abbas
(May Allah be pleased with him) they at once turned back to fight. Had they gone far off, their sudden re-
organisation and collecting again would not have been possible.
3. Here is the proof of a miracle of the Prophet (PBUH) as well; the throwing of few pebbles from his side caused
the defeat of the enemy.
4. Here, the Muslims were taught a lesson that the real power in the battlefield is the strength of Belief and the Help
of Allah. The position of the armaments and other things is secondary. So, one should not depend on these means
and resources alone. Otherwise, one will certainly face defeat in spite of large number of soldiers and better means,
as happened initially in the battle of Hunain. The trust should be on Allah and His Special Help. His Will alone is
the deciding factor in every matter.

Abu Hurairah (May Allah be pleased with him) said: The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, "
O people! Allah
is Pure and, therefore, accepts only that which is pure. Allah has commanded the believers as He has commanded
His Messengers by saying:
`O Messengers! Eat of the good things, and do good deeds.
' (23:51)
And He said:
O you
who believe (in the Oneness of Allah - Islamic Monotheism)! Eat of the lawful things that We have provided you...
(2:172). Then he (PBUH) made a mention of the person who travels for a long period of time, his hair are
dishevelled and covered with dust. He lifts his hand towards the sky and thus makes the supplication: `My Rubb!
My Rubb!' But his food is unlawful, his drink is unlawful, his clothes are unlawful and his nourishment is unlawful,
how can, then his supplication be accepted?''
For the grant of prayer, honest earning is essential. Allah accepts charity only if it has been earned in
an honest way. Moreover, before any pious action, honest earning for living is essential; otherwise good actions will
also go waste.
