4-Sudâ’ Delegation

Article translated to : العربية
4-sudâ’ delegation: the arrival of this delegation was after the departure of the messenger of allâh [pbuh] from al-ji‘ranah in the eighth year of al-hijra. it was because the messenger of allâh [pbuh] had already dispatched a mission that comprised four hundred muslims and asked them to go to where sudâ’ was. sudâ’ was (a fresh-water fountain) in yemen. while the mission was camping there at the starting point of a canal. ziyad bin al-harith as-sudâ’i learned of their stay, so he came to the messenger of allâh [pbuh] and said: "i have come to you as a deputy of my people, so tell your army to go back and i guarantee of my people." the army were sent away off the canal. in his turn as-sudâ’i went back, cherished and urged his people to come and meet the messenger of allâh [pbuh]. eventually fifteen of them came and pledged allegiance to him as true muslims. returning home, they in their turn, urged the rest to be muslims. thus islam spread among them. later on, a hundred men joined the messenger of allâh [pbuh] in hajjatul-wada‘ (farewell pilgrimage.)
