it. I am sending him to you.’ Saying this, he went straight to the place where Sa’d Bin Mu’aaz was present and convinced him to meet the two preachers.
As soon as Sa’d Bin Mu’aaz arrived, he started speaking ill of them. (Initiating the individual effort), Sayyiduna Mus’ab Bin ‘Umayr رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَالٰی عَـنْـهُ persuaded him kindly and affectionately to listen to the call to righteousness. He also sank his spear into the ground and sat beside them. Sayyiduna Mus’ab Bin Umayr رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَالٰی عَـنْـهُ presented him also with Madani pearls about the perfection of Islam. He also read out the initial Ayahs of Surah Az-Zukhruf. The blessed Ayahs had a profound impact on the heart of Sa’d Bin Mu’aaz and he also embraced Islam. Having become Muslim, Sayyiduna Sa’d Bin Mu’aaz رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَالٰی عَـنْـهُ returned to his tribe and said, ‘What do you think of me?’ ‘You are our chief and a farsighted as well as a sagacious person’, people said in chorus. Sayyiduna Sa’d Bin Mu’aaz رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَالٰی عَـنْـهُ said, ‘It is Haraam [i.e. prohibited] for me to talk to your men and women unless you believe in Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ and His Rasool صَلَّى اللهُ تَعَالٰى عَلَيْهِ وَاٰلِهٖ وَسَلَّم.’
The narrator has said, ‘By Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ! All men and women of the tribe became Muslim until evening.’ (Al-Bidayah wan-Nihayah, vol. 2, pp. 527-529; summarized)
Saara qabeelah Iman laaya meethay bol ki barakat say
Bantay kaam bigar jatay hayn sun lo bay-ja shiddat say
صَلُّوۡا عَلَى الۡحَبِيۡب صَلَّى اللّٰهُ تَعَالٰى عَلٰى مُحَمَّد
Dear Islamic brothers! Did you observe? How bravely the blessed Sahabah رَضِىَ الـلّٰـهُ تَـعَـالٰی عَـنْـهُم would convey the call to righteousness even by endangering their lives! This parable also shows that individual effort on powerful and influential personalities such as generous individuals, big businessmen, mill owners and teachers, may bring about far-reaching effects. When two chiefs of the tribe ‘Banu Aslam’ were called towards righteousness by means of individual effort, they accepted the call to righteousness, entering the fold of Islam as well as bringing the entire tribe into it.
