    Lofty Character

    Report bad ads?

    ‎و انك لعلي خلق عظيم

    When we study the Seerah of Rasulullah صلي الله عليه و سلم we see that in the year 6 hijri at the time of Hudaibiyyah the amount of Sahaba present were approximately 1500. And in the year 10 hijri on the occasion of Hajjatul Wida they were 124,000 Sahaba. Just in the span of 4 years the number increased.

    What was the reason?

    When the Muslims gained victory on the occasion of Fathe Makkah, Rasulullah صلي الله عليه و سلم showed his amazing character. When Sa’d Bin Ubadah RA was entering Makkah as a leader and a flag in his hands, his gaze fell on Abu Sufyan (who wasn’t a Muslim at the time, but later on accepted Islam) he said, “اليوم يوم الملحمة” Today is a day of war, revenge. When rasulullah heard this he said, “اليوم يوم المرحمة” Today is a day of Mercy, and he took the flag from Sa’d RA and said don’t pass such remarks. Those who use to curse him, swore at him, gave him trouble his whole life, when they came as captives and were presented to Rasulullah صلي الله عليه و سلم, he said, “Today I’ll say the same thing my brother Yusuf AS said to his brothers (when they came to Yusuf AS whilst he was a king) ‘لا تثريب عليكم اليوم’ Their will be no revenge today”. Then he said,
    “What do you think I will do to you?’ They answered: ‘You will only do something favorable; you are a kind and generous brother, and a kind and generous nephew!’ The Prophet (pbuh) said:
    ‎”أنتم الطلقاء” You are free to go. When they saw that the person whom they used to criticise and trouble for so many years, today when he has the upper hand, he is still forgiving, then his religion and his God has to be on Haqq, due to which they began to enter into Islam in huge numbers. This is what what Allah is saying in Sura Nasr, و رأيت الناس يدخلون في دين الله افواجا “And you will see people entering the Deen of Allah in armies”.

    This was the lofty character of the Messenger of Allah صلي الله عليه و سلم

    Akhlaq (character) can be categorised into 3 types:

    1. Khulq-e-Hasan خلق حسن: if someone does wrong to you, you do the same in return. فجزاء سيئة سيئة بمثلها
    2. Khulq-e-Kareem خلق كريم: if someone does wrong to you, you forgive them. فمن عفا و اصلح فأجره علي الله
    3. Khulq-e-Azeem خلق عظيم: if someone does wrong to you, you forgive them and on top of that you do them a favour. This was the character of Rasulullah صلي الله عليه و سلم, Allah says in Sura Qalam و انك لعلي خلق عظيم

    Ihsan (Arabic: إحسان‎ ʾiḥsān, also Romanized ehsan), is an Arabic term meaning "perfection" or "excellence" (Ara. husn). It is a matter of taking one's inner faith (iman) and showing it in both deed and action, a sense of social responsibility borne from religious convictions.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ihsan




    The name Hassan in Arabic means 'handsome' or 'good', or 'benefactor'.

    There are two different Arabic names that are both romanized with the spelling "Hassan". However, they are pronounced differently, and in Arabic script spelled differently.

    The more common name ‏حَسَن‎ Ḥasan (as in the name of the Islamic prophet, Muhammad's grandson Hasan ibn Ali ), [3] coming from the Arabic language triconsonantal root Ḥ-S-N, has two short vowels and a single /s/. Its meaning is 'the good' or 'the handsome'. Its usual form in Classical Arabic is الحسن al-Ḥasan, incorporating the definite article al-, which may be omitted in modern Arabic names.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hassan_(given_name)




    2.

    Karim (alternatively spelled Kareem, (Kahreem) or Kerim) (Arabic: کریم‎) is a common given name and surname of Arabic origin that means generous or noble. It should not be confused with Al-Karim (Arabic: الکریم‎), which is one of the 99 names of Allah, meaning The Most Generous.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karim



    3.

    Azim (ʿAẓīm عظيم) is one of the names of God in Islam, meaning "Great" or "Magnificent" or "Protector" Also used as a personal name, as short form of the Abdul Azim, "Servant of the Magnificent".

    Please be sincere, and try to be accurate.



    Allah's Armies Pass before Abu Sufyan

    The Muslims prepared to enter Makkah, "The Mother of the Towns". The Prophet ~ said to his uncle `Abbas, "Go and hold Abu Sufyan at the narrow path of the valley so that the army of Allah passes by him and he can see them." Al`Abbas had a good wit and diplomatic speech, so he said, "Messenger of Allah, Abu Sufyan is proud, so give him a privilege over his people."
    So the Messenger ~, who had a good understanding of the hearts and souls, said, "He who enters the house of Abu Sufyan is safe. He who enters the house of Hakim ibn Hizam is safe. -
    He who enters the Sacred Mosque is safe, and he who keeps himself indoors is safe."
    Al-'Abbas "Abul Fadl" took Abu Sufyan "Abu Hanzhalah" and confined him at the narrow path of the mountain where the Prophet ordered. As the tribes passed by Abu Sufyan ibn Harb, he wondered, "Who are these?"
    Abul Fadl said to him, "Declare your faith."
    Abu Sufyan said, "Why should I?" Then he repeated, "Who are these?"
    "The tribe of Juhainah."
    "What do I have to do with Juhainah?"
    Then the tribe of Ghifar passed by and he asked the same question. Afterwards, Sa'd ibn Hadhim passed by, and Abu Sufyan exclaimed as before. Then a select, distinguished brigade passed by.
    "Oh, Abul Fadl! Who are these?"
    "This is the Messenger of Allah accompanied by the Ansar (Helpers of Madinah)."
    "No one can defeat such a group."
    He then looked at the green brigade and shook with fear for the Quraish. He was astonished by the great army mustered by the Prophet ~. He turned to Abul Fadl and said, "By Allah, Abul Fadl, your nephew's power has become great!"
    "Oh, Abu Sufyan! It's the prophethood."
    Sa'd ibn 'Ubadah carried the standard of the Prophet, and when he passed by Abu Sufyan, he said to him, "Abu Sufyan! Today is the day of the battle. Today Allah will humiliate the Quraish."
    When the Prophet himself ~ passed by Abu Sufyan, the latter said, "Messenger of Allah, did you order the murder of your own kinsmen? Sa'd ibn 'Ubadah and his company said upon passing by me that he will kill us! Oh, Messenger of Allah! For the sake of Allah, I beg you to be merciful with your people, for you are the most beneficent, merciful and tender of them all."
    'Uthman ibn 'Affan and `Abdul Rahman ibn 'Auf said, "Messenger of Allah, we do not guarantee that Sa'd will not attack the Quraish."
    The Prophet ~ said, "Abu Sufyan, Sa'd lied. Today is the day of mercy and today Allah will honor the Quraish."
    The Prophet of mercy ~ sent to Sa'd ibn 'Ubadah to have the standard taken from him and given to his son Qais ibn Sa'd ibn 'Ubadah. Sa'd refused to hand over the standard except by a clear indication from the Prophet.
    The Prophet ~ sent him his turban, so Sa'd gave the standard over to his son Qais.
    .....



    ........
    The Free

    The Prophet ~ stood and said, "There is no god but Allah. He has no partner. He has fulfilled His promise, granted victory to His servant and defeated the allies alone.
    "People of the Quraish, Allah has purified you from the arrogance of the Period of Ignorance and its flattering with ancestry. People are descended from Adam, and Adam was created out of mud." Then he recited
    {O mankind! We have created you from a male and a female, and made you nations and tribes, that you may know one another. Surely the most honorable of you in the sight of Allah is the most pious of you. Indeed Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.} (Al-Hujurat 49: 13)

    The Prophet ~ placed his hands on the doorknobs and said, "What do you think I will do to you?"
    They said, "Good."
    One of them said, "We say it is good and believe it to be good. You are a good brother and a good nephew, though you have power over us."
    The Prophet ~ said, "I will say to you what my brother Yusuf said: {... "No reproach shall this day be upon you, and Allah will forgive you, He is the Most Merciful of those who have mercy."} (Yusuf 12: 92) Go, you are free."
    Providing water for the pilgrims was the responsibility of the tribe of 'Abdul Muttalib, and Al-'Abbas ibn 'Abdul Mutalib was in charge of it. The Prophet ~ asked, "Where is 'Uthman ibn Abi Talhah?"
    'Uthman replied, "At your service, Messenger of Allah!"
    The Prophet said, "Take your key, 'Uthman, for today is a day of beneficence and fulfillment." Then he gave him the keys and said, "Take the keys, ibn Abi Talhah, for they will be your everlasting duty not to be taken except by a transgressor.
    Then the responsibility of providing water was given to 'Abbas ibn ' Abdul Muttalib.

    Sa‘d bin ‘Ubadah carried the flag of the Helpers. When he passed by Abu Sufyan, he said "Today will witness the great fight, you cannot seek sanctuary at Al-Ka‘bah. Today will witness the humiliation of Quraish." Abu Sufyan complained about this to the Prophet [pbuh] who got angry and said "Nay, today Al-Ka‘bah will be sanctified, and Quraish honoured," and quickly ordered that Sa‘d should be stripped off the flag, and that it should be entrusted to his son Qais, in another version, to Az- Zubair.


    http://www.authentictauheed.com/2012...rt-20.html?m=1




    The Prophet emphasised that there must be no fighting unless there was armed resistance by the Quraish. He also ordered that there would be no killing of the wounded, no pursuit of fugitives and no slaying of captives.

    The entry into Makkah took place on January 11, 630 (the 20th of Ramadan, 8 Hijri). It proved a peaceful and bloodless operation except in the sector of Khalid. Ikrimah and Safwan had got together a band of dissidents from the Quraish and other tribes and decided to make the Muslims fight for victory. They met Khalid's column at Khandama, and this was a new and strange experience for Khalid. The two enemy leaders who were now opposing him in battle had been his dearest friends Ikrimah and Safwan; and the latter was also the husband of Khalid's sister, Faktah. However, Islam cancelled all relationships and friendships of the Ignorance, and no one who was not a Muslim could have a claim on a Muslim for old time's sake.

    The Quraish opened up with their bows and drew their swords; and this was all that Khalid was waiting for. He charged the Quraish position, and after a short and sharp clash, the Quraish were driven back. Twelve of the Quraish were killed at a loss of only two Muslims. Ikrimah and Safwan fled from the scene of the encounter.

    When the Prophet came to know of this action and the number of infidels killed, he was displeased with Khalid. He had wished to avoid bloodshed; and knowing Khalid's violent nature he feared that Khalid may himself have brought on a military engagement. Khalid was duly sent for and asked to account for his action. His explanation, however, was accepted by the Prophet, who agreed that Khalid had done the right thing. He had, after all, merely hit back. It was in the nature of Khalid that whenever he struck, he struck very hard. There was no moderation in the character of the man.

    As soon as Makkah was occupied by the Muslims, the Prophet went to the Kabah and circumambulated the House of Allah seven times. This was a great moment in the life of Muhammad. It was more than seven years since he had fled as a fugitive from Makkah with the Quraish at his heels, thirsting for his blood. Muhammad was no longer the fugitive. He was no longer a voice crying in the wilderness. Muhammad had returned, and he had returned as master with Makkah at his feet. The Quraish trembled as they waited in the mosque, for they knew the savage nature of Arab vengeance.

    The Prophet turned and looked at the Quraish. There was a hushed silence as the assembled populace gazed at him, wondering what their fate would be. "O Quraish!" called the Prophet. "How should I treat you?"

    "Kindly, O noble brother, and son of a noble brother!" the crowd replied.

    "Then go! You are forgiven." 1

    The Prophet now entered the Kabah and saw the idols arranged along its walls-idols of all shapes and sizes. In and around the Kabah there were 360 idols carved of wood or hewn out of stone, including a statue of Ibrahim holding divining arrows. The Prophet had a large stick in his hand, and he set about smashing these idols to pieces. When the task was finished he felt as if a great weight had been lifted off his shoulders. The Kabah had been cleansed of the false gods; now only the true Allah would be worshipped in the House of Allah. The Prophet's joyous cry (a Quranic verse) rose above the Kabah: "Truth has come and falsehood has vanished!" 2

    The next few days were spent in consolidation and reorganisation. Most of the people of Makkah accepted Islam and swore allegiance to the Messenger of Allah.

    Before his entry into Makkah, the Prophet had announced the names of 10 persons-six men and four women-who were to be killed at sight, even if they took shelter within the Kabah. These 10 were what we would today call 'war criminals'. They were either apostates or had taken part directly or indirectly in the torture or betrayal of Muslims. At the head of the list was Ikrimah, and Hind also was one of them.

    1. Ibn Hisham: Vol. 2, p. 412.
    2. Ibid. Vol. 2, p. 417; Quran: 17:81


    http://khalidbinwaleed.blogspot.com/...akkah.html?m=1

    The last linked article of the three (directly above) appears to have some inaccuracies in translation - yet was the most easily available sourced article with details.





    ....he ended up forgiving some who sought protection and told wahshi the killer and mutilator of hamzah who came in pronouncing Islam before he could be struck not to show his face to him again, but it was neither as soft, nor as harsh as some would make out - rather it was a victory for Allah - the creator and sustainer of the heavens and the earth besides whom there is no god - and in tempered submision to Him.



    When the messenger of Allah says "free" he means free from slavery to people and other creation - since it is a known and undisputed fact that nobody is free from the creator and sustainer of the heavens and the earth.

    Re: Lofty Character

    ^ Hz Khalid RA didnot want to fight but it was Ikrima RA who challenged him.

    This incident displays the bravery of Ikrimah RA who preferred 'fight' to 'surrender'.
