Shaykh Yasir Qadhi now discusses the happenings on leaving Madinah enroute the Battle of Tabuk by the Prophet ﷺ.
Post passing the Thaniyat Al Wada, the Prophet ﷺ paused to organise the troops into battalions, leaders, sub-leaders and many more such divisions. Mu’adh ibn Jabal RA narrated that the Prophet ﷺ prayed Fajr on the way to Tabuk where he stayed for 20 days and the people were on their camels. An incident happened there relating the camels which makes for an interesting listen. The Prophet ﷺ gave a Khutbah the first thing in the morning of their arrival to Tabuk.
In addition to the above incident, he also sent Khalid ibn Waleed with a small entourage on a mini expedition to one of the neighbouring tribes in Tabuk called Jomatul Jandan which was a very famous and one of the largest Christian Arab tribes in Arabia. They were on amicable terms with the then emperor of Rome and were renowned for their bravery and warriorship,
The Prophet ﷺ gave clear instructions to Khalid Ibn Waleed RA of the whereabouts of their chieftain – Ookaydil and how he ought to be captured.he followed the instructions to the tee. Though it was a bit odd, Khalid RA achieved success and the emperor was captured and brought to the Prophet SAW where he agreed to sever all ties with the Romans, pay the jizya to the Prophet ﷺ, and not harm the Muslims. In a similar fashion, other tribe leaders also agreed to side with the Muslims and hence, imminent victory against the Romans was a given.
