Hajj reflections 9 – Hudaibiyah Goodness can come from the unexpected
How the event of Hudaibiyah changed history
Ibn Umar reported Allah’s Messenger (peace be on him) as saying:
You would find people like one hundred camels and you would not find even one (camel) fit for riding. (Muslim).
On route to Umrah, Al-Qaswa’ froze three times at a certain place called Al-Hudaibiyah and refused to move. The companions (may Allah be pleased with them) tried calling her and swearing at her to get her to move. The Prophet (peace be on him) stopped them and said:
The One who stopped the elephant from going to Makkah has likewise stopped my camel. By Allah if they ask about anything now that doesn’t breach Allah’s command, I’ll accept it from them (i.e. Quraysh).
So the Prophet (peace be on him) was ready to agree to what the people wanted.
When goodness comes out of pain
