The Prophet then climbed Mount Safa until he could see the Ka’bah. He then raised his hands in prayer. When he had finished, the people came up to confess their faith and pledge their allegiance. Among those who became Muslim that day was Abu Qahafa, the father of his dear Companion, Abu Bakr, and the Prophet expressed great joy at his conversion. Women also came up and asked to be admitted to Islam, and the Prophet administered the following oath to them without shaking hands:


“Pledge that you will not associate anything with Allah, steal, commit adultery, kill your children, slander anyone nor disobey me.” Among the women who took the oath of allegiance that day was Hind bin Utbah, wife of Abu Sufyan. She came veiled and in disguise, as she feared for her life. What she had done to the dead body of Hamzah had been unforgivable, and the fear of retribution gnawed at her. After taking the oath, she said: “O Messenger of Allah, there was no tent on the face of the earth more detested to me than yours, but now your tent is the dearest to me.”

 

Thereupon the Prophet remarked, “By the One in Whose hand lies the life of Muhammad, it is so.” Umar bin Khattab sat below the Prophet’s seat, relaying the Prophet’s words to the people, and administering the oath of allegiance on behalf of the Prophet .

 

Some people came up to pledge their willingness to migrate for the sake of Islam, but the Prophet said, “The Muhajireen have garnered all the reward of Hijrah [migration for the sake of Allah]. Now that Makkah has been conquered, there can be no more migration. However, Jihad remains open to you and so does the intention to make Jihad. When you are called upon to fight in Allah’s way, go forth.”
