Lessons of Hudaybiyya PDF Print E-mail

At times we encounter situations where at first the reason for it happening might not be obvious, but becomes apparent in the long-term. Allah, in His Supreme Wisdom, sometimes hides from us the long-term outcomes of things that have been written in our fate, until His Divine Decree comes to pass, and when we analyze these events in retrospect, we realize in awe why Allah made them happen, and how beneficial they were for us. Here are some lessons we learn from a pivotal point in Islamic history:


The treaty of Hudaybiyya was once such occasion, when the Muslims from Madinah were prevented from performing Umrah by the non Muslims of Makkah. The treaty which the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam negotiated with the non Muslims, at the time looked to be heavily in fa- vour of the non Muslims. To achieve the long-term goals of spreading Islam, the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam displayed tact and restraint with the non Muslims and their unjust demands. Ultimately, the selfish stipulations of the non Muslims were the turning point that was to become the stepping-stone for the con- quest of Islam in not just Makkah, but the entire Arabian Peninsula.
It is common see leaders of different political factions make derogatory remarks about each other, even dur- ing peace talks. They dish out threats and lose their cool at the slightest provocation. The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam displayed ex- emplary restraint at the non Muslim provocation during negotiations and stopped his followers from harming delegates.
When the non Muslims objected to the Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam signing as the ‘Messenger of Allah’, he agreed despite it being an open rejection of his status as God’s Prophet. Can we allow our egos to be crushed for the sake of the propagation of Islam by compromising on smaller issues in the interest of the bigger picture?
Some victories in life start out as apparent setbacks. The mills grind slowly, but as the years pass one realizes how Allah favors His sincere slaves over His enemies and makes them ultimately successful.
