About this episode

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi discusses the events happening in the Conquest of Mecca and many highlights are seen.

The Prophet ﷺ divided the entire Muslim army into three major contingents which were Ansaris, Muhajiroun and a mixture of the two. Sa'd ibn Ubadah was heading the Ansar and

Khalid ibn Waleed was heading the Muhajiroun and the middle army was being led by Abd Ubaidah Amr ibn Jarrah. Totally, there were 700 Muhajiroun, 4000 Ansar in the Muslim army. One incident that happened was the handing over of the banner to Zubair ibn Al Awwam from Sa’d. What happened that led to this incident?

On the 20th Ramadan, 8H, the Prophet ﷺ finally achieved victory over the city of Mecca. What did the Prophet ﷺ do when he emerged victorious? What were the things that he did as he went around Mecca celebrating his victory and the victory of the Muslims after 21 years? Listen intently and be mesmerised by the sheer beauty of the emotions running in his mind.

After cleansing the Kaaba of idols, pictures of various people and making the Kaaba pure, the Prophet ﷺ addressed the gathering via a short Khutbah in front of him comprising of the people of Mecca, Ansar, Muhajir and more than 12,000 people. The Prophet ﷺ gave the keys of the Kaaba to Uthman ibn Talha who was handling this responsibility from before.

The conquest of Mecca was unique in every which way as in :

  • Zero war gains - no booty
  • Zero prisoners of war
  • No land acquired

The Prophet ﷺ did not give amnesty to the following people from Mecca:

  • Ikrimah ibn Jahal
  • Abdullah ibn Khatal
  • Mikyas ibn Subaba
  • Abdullah ibn Abi Sar'ah
  • Fartana
  • Sarah

What had they that they were deprived of mercy even though our beloved Prophet ﷺ was the epitome of mercy? Who were the ones who were executed? Shaykh Yasir Qadhi answers.
