The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, left the people of Taa’if after they did not answer his call, which comprised of believing him and helping him. He, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, turned to Hiraa’, then sent to Al-Akhnas ibn Shurayq, asking for his protection, but he said: “I am an ally of the Quraysh, and an ally cannot protect the enemy of their ally.” Then the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, sent to Suhayb ibn `Amr asking for his protection, and he said: “The offspring of `Aamir do not grant protection to the offspring of Ka`b.” Then he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, sent to Al-Mut`im ibn `Adiyy, who accepted his plea, and granted him protection.

The Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, went to him and spent the night at his home. The next morning, he and his six or seven sons went with the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, carrying their swords, and entered the Mosque in that manner. Al-Mut`im said to the Messenger of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, “Circumambulate the Ka’bah,” while they leaned on their swords in the area that one makes circumambulation.

Abu Sufyaan approached and said to Mut`im, “Are you granting protection, or are you following someone else’s promise of protection?” He replied: “No, rather, I am giving the promise of protection.” Abu Sufyaan said: “Then we will honor your promise,” and sat with him while the Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, was circumambulating the Ka’bah, and when he finished, they left together, and Abu Sufyaan went back to his gathering.

The Prophet of Allah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, stayed for a few days then was granted permission to migrate to Madinah, and after he, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, migrated, Al-Mut`im did not live long after him, making Hassaan ibn Thaabit say, “By Allah, I will bemoan him,” and wrote some poetry about him.
