About this episode

Why was Ta’if chosen to be the place for migration after it became almost impossible to live in Mecca after having been withdrawn of any protection from Abu Lahab? What happened in Ta’if when our Prophet ﷺ reached there along with Zayd Ibn Harithah RA? Answers to these questions and more in this episode of the Seerah by Shaykh Yasir Qadhi. 

Dua is the weapon of the believer. As long as we have dua, we will find a way out of our problems. Dua grants what nothing else grants. The only thing that changed Qadr is the dua that the Prophet ﷺ said when he was completely dejected having no support in Mecca and also facing rejection in the city of Ta’if. The incident of Ta'if is a complete bag of wisdom which we can derive from, in sha Allah. 

Mut'im ibn Adi is the chief of the Banu Nawfal and his protection given to the Prophet ﷺ when he sought to enter Mecca after visiting Ta’if. He was a pagan and remained so till his death. What was the wisdom behind his remaining a pagan in spite of being a supporter of the Prophet ﷺ?

The Prophet ﷺ remained under Mut'im's protection for 1.5 or 2 years. But he realizes the difficulty and the delicateness of the situation. And the Prophet ﷺ kept looking for another way until Allah finally allowed him to do Hijra.

A point to contemplate upon is this - The Prophet ﷺ is all alone outside of Mecca. He has had 2 rejections. So he could have tried another city; migrated to Abyssinia where Najashi would definitely have accepted him; but he still wanted to live in Mecca, the land of persecution. Why?

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi answers this question in the most befitting manner possible.
