exposure of the hypocrites, the prerogatives and special rank earmarked for the strivers in the
cause of Allâh, acceptance of the repentance of the truthful believers who slackened and those who
hung back, etc.

1. After the Messenger’s return from Tabuk, the sworn allegation of infidelity between ‘Uwaimir
Al-‘Ajlani and his wife took place.
2. Pelting with stones the Ghamidiyah woman who confessed committing adultery. She was
pelted with stones only after weaning her child off her breast milk.
3. Negus Ashama; the king of Abyssinia (Ethiopia), died so the Prophet (peace be upon him)
performed prayer in absentia for him.
4. The death of Umm Kulthum, the daughter of the Prophet (peace be upon him), the Prophet
felt extremely sad at her death. “Had I got a third daughter, I would let you marry her.” He
said to ‘Uthman.

Tabuk. The Messenger of Allâh (peace be upon him) asked Allâh’s forgiveness for him. He
