Yasir Qadhi – Seerah – 94 The Year of Delegations – Part 1

Shaykh Yasir Qadhi divulges details on the happenings of the 9th year of Hijrah which is also called the ‘ Year of Delegations’. It is not as if delegations did not happen prior to this, but this year was special as the number had reached large numbers.

What comprises a delegation? It is when a tribe sends a representative to negotiate with the Prophet ﷺ on their eagerness to embrace Islam or not.

There are 15 delegations of interest and are discussed elaborately. Some of the delegations discussed in this lecture are:

  • Abdul Qais – the Christian tribe who lived close to modern day Bahrain.
  • Banu Sa’d ibn Bakr the tribe of Haleema RA.
  • Banu Amr ibn Sa’sa – the tribe that was responsible for the well of Bir Maoona
  • Tamim ad Dari – a christian from a northern tribe.

There is also an interesting miracle that transpired when the tribe of Muzayana came to embrace Islam and the Prophet ﷺ asked Umar RA to refill their food supplies. What was this miracle? Listen intently as Shaykh Yasir answers.
