“Verily, he who fears Allâh with obedience to Him (by abstaining from sins and evil deeds,
and by performing righteous good deeds), and is patient, then surely, Allâh makes not the
reward of the good-doers to be lost.” [12:90]
Upon returning from this long successful travel, the Messenger of Allâh (peace be upon him) stayed
in Madinah where he received delegates and dispatched agents and appointed preachers and callers
to Islam everywhere. Those whose hearts were still full of prejudice against Islam and therefore
were too proud to embrace Allâh’s religion, were decisively muffled on their non-acquiescence in the
status quo prevalent then in Arabia.
Here is a mini-image about the believed ones. We have already stated that the Messenger’s arrival
in Madinah was by the last days of the eighth year of Al-Hijra. No sooner the crescent of Muharram
of the ninth year turned up than the Messenger of Allâh (peace be upon him) dispatched the
believed ones, to the tribes as shown in the list below:
1. ‘Uyaina bin Hisn to Bani Tamim.
2. Yazeed bin Husain to Aslam and Ghifar.
3. ‘Abbad bin Bishr Al-Ashhali to Sulaim and Muzainah.
4. Rafi‘ bin Mukaith to Juhainah.
5. ‘Amr bin Al-‘As to Bani Fazarah.
6. Ad-Dahhak bin Sufyan to Bani Kilab.
7. Basheer bin Sufyan to Bani Ka‘b.
8. Ibn Al-Lutabiyah Al-Azdi to Bani Dhubyan.
9. Al-Muhajir bin Abi Omaiyah to Sana‘a’ (Al-Aswad Al-‘Ansi called at him when he was in it).
10. Ziyad bin Labid to Hadramout.
11. ‘Adi bin Hatim to Tai’ and Bani Asad.
12. Malik bin Nuwairah to Bani Hanzalah.
13. Az-Zabraqan bin Badr to Bani Sa‘d (a portion of them).
14. Qais bin ‘Asim to Bani Sa‘d (a portion of them).
15. Al-‘Alâ’ bin Al-Hadrami to Al-Bahrain.
16. ‘Ali bin Abi Talib to Najran (to collect
Sadaqa & Jizya
Some of these agents were despatched in Muharram, 7 A.H., others were sent later until the tribes
they were heading for had completely converted into Islam. Such a move clearly demonstrates the
great success that the Islamic
(Call) enjoyed after Al-Hudaibiyah Treaty. However, shortly
after the conquest of Makkah, people began to embrace Islam in large hosts.
