And they wanted to give him you know, the best possible greeting that they can give someone. So they sent out a delegation to go and
meet, and Waleed as he's approaching their town or their village. And so they sent out people to go and to have, like, you know, this is the type of greeting you would do. For someone that you respect a lot. You wouldn't wait for them to come to your door, you would go out and meet them even before they would come to your door.

So they turned around and they ran and they retreated back to Medina. And the Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam saw them arrive and they came back so quick and, and they didn't have anything with them. And he said, What's wrong? And they said, well, that tribe was going to kill us, they're going to attack us. And so the Muslims heard the story that you know, this was a messenger, going to receive the Zika.

sallallahu said, Let's take an army let's go fight them. And the Prophet sallallahu Sallam said, Wait, let's find out what's going on first. So he told some Muslims go and and investigate, go see what's going on. So these Muslims, were leaving Medina to go investigate and see what's going on. And they found a delegation from venerable startup, that tribe coming to Medina. And they came to the Prophet solo. And he said, and they said, you know, we told you to send us a messenger, the messenger never came. And the Prophet said, you know, this is what's happened. They said that you were going to fight them or kill them. And all they could say, was narrowed out the villa human

And he relayed incorrect information to the Prophet sallallahu wasallam. And to the Muslims. Imagine a group of new Muslims, and they're excited to be Muslims, and they love the Prophet sallallahu sallam, and they wanted to honor the messenger of the Messenger of Allah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, and they could have ended up being killed and fought by the Muslims, all because of misinformation, all because of incorrect news that had been spread.
