In the fifth year of the Hegira (Hijrat), he bought Juwayriyya, who was among the slaves captured from the Benî Mustalaq tribe (in the Holy war of Mureysî) and was the daughter of the chief, manumitted her, and then made nikâh with her, (i.e. he married her with a marriage contract prescribed by Islam and which is called ‘nikâh’, and which is explained in detail in the twelfth chapter of the fifth fascicle of Endless Bliss.) For religious incentives he made nikâh with Umm-Salama, Sevda, Zeyneb binti Huzeyma, Meymûna, and Safiyya ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anhunna’. As for Zeyneb (or Zaynab), his paternal uncle’s daughter; his nikâh with her was made by Allâhu ta’âlâ. Jebrâîl ‘’alaihis-salâm’ came to him twenty-four thousand times. He was fifty-two years old when he was taken up to (Heaven in an event termed) Mi’râj. [1] At the age of fifty-three he migrated from Mekka to Medîna, (an event which is called Hijrat or Hegira.) He and Abû Bakr stayed in a cave on mount Sawr (or Sevr) for three nights, and left the cave late Monday night. After a week’s trudge, they arrived at Kubâ, a village of Medîna, on the twentieth of September; it was Monday then. And it was the following Friday when they entered Medîna. The Holy War of Bedr (or Badr) was fought in the second year of the Hijrat, on a Monday in the blessed month of Ramadân. Versus the three hundred and thirteen Muslim soldiers, eight of whom were on duties elsewhere, there were a thousand Qoureishis. Thirteen Sahâbîs attained martyrdom. Abû Jahl and seventy other unbelievers were slain. The Holy War of ’Uhud was fought during the month of Shewwâl in the third year of the Hegira. Seven hundred Muslim soldiers were against a three thousand strong army of unbelievers. Seventy of the Ashâb-i-kirâm became martyrs. Four months after the Holy War of ’Uhud, seventy young Sahâbîs were sent to the inhabitants of Nejd on a mission to invite them to Islam. When they reached at a place called Bi’ri Me’ûna, they were ambushed and the entire group, with the exception of two Sahâbîs, were martyred. The fifth Hegiral year witnessed the Holy War termed Hendek (Trench). Versus the ten thousand unbelievers, there were three [1] There is detailed information about Mi’râj in the sixtieth chapter of the third fascicle of Endless Bliss. – 40 –

thousand Muslims. The unbelievers besieged Medîna. The Muslims had already dug a trench around Medîna. A year before the Holy War of Hayber, which took place in the seventh year, an agreement called Bî’at-ur-ridwân was made at a place named Hudeybiya. The Holy War of Mûta is a jihâd made against the Byzantine Caesar Heraclius. There were three thousand Muslims against a hundred thousand strong Byzantine army. Ja’fer Tayyâr ‘radiy-Allâhu ’anh’ attained martyrdom in this war. The war was won by Khâlid bin Walîd. Mekka was conquered in the eighth year. Huneyn is a renowned and grand Holy War. It ended in victory. Hayber is a widely known Jewish fortress. Rasûlullah sent Hadrat ’Alî, and the fortress was conquered. It was in that place where Rasûlullah was offered poisoned food, which he refused to eat. As they were on their way back from a Holy War, Hadrat ’Âisha became the target of an ignoble calumny, which saddened the Messenger of Allah very much. Âyat-i-kerîmas came down, whereby it was found out that the calumny was a monstrous lie. Also renowned is the victory of Tâif.
