Modernists, Mudhilleen ulama-e-soo’ and other types of antiSunnah deviates such as the inter-faithers, monotonously proffer the story of the Christian delegation from Najraan which had met Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) in Madinah. They stupidly argue their baatil opinions on the basis of the Najraani episode to justify kufr inter-faith dialogue and for permissibility for kuffaar wallowing in spiritual and physical janaabat to make merry in the Musaajid.
The following brief account of the episode of the delegation from Najraan will dispel the stupidities of the deviant entities who are all bootlickers of the West – of the Yahood and Nasaaraa.
When the delegation reached Madinah Munawwarah, its members removed their dustridden travel dress and donned their gaudily adorned garments and golden rings. According to their proudful style, their long cloaks dragged on the ground as they walked. Exhibiting some pomp and show they came to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and greeted him. Our Nabi (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) did not respond to their greeting. He did not exchange niceties nor display any vestige of bootlicking.
They endeavoured the whole day to engage Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) in conversation, but he rebuffed them. He did not speak with them. Distraught and perplexed, they set out in search of Hadhrat Uthmaan (Radhiyallahu anhu) and Hadhrat Abdur Rahmaan Bin Auf (Radhiyallahu anhu). They were acquainted with these two senior Sahaabah. After they located the two, the Christians said:
“O Uthmaan! O Abdur Rahmaan! Your Nabi had written a letter to us. We have come to respond to his letter. We came and greeted, but he refused to respond to our greeting. We endeavoured the entire day to speak to him, but he avoided us. What is your advice? Do you advise that we should return?”
Both these Sahaabah sought the advice of Hadhrat Ali(Radhiyallahu anhu) who said: “They should remove their gaudy garments and their golden rings, and don their travel dress, then go to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam).”
This advice was heeded. The delegation acted accordingly. When they came into the presence of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and greeted, he returned their greeting. Then Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) said:
“I take an oath by That Being Who has sent me with the Truth! They (i.e. the delegation) had come to me the first time with the adornment of Iblees….”
This was forthright Amr Bil Ma’roof Nahy anil Munkar to even the kuffaar. Dress of the type which even Muslims today wear in emulation of kuffaar fashions are ‘adornments of Iblees’. Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) did not resort to the type of nafsaani ‘hikmat’ which the ‘dumb shaitaan’ molvis of today advocate.
Then Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) engaged them in discussion. Before the delegation had arrived, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had issued the following ultimatum to them:
“Accept Islam, and you will be granted safety…….I am calling you away from the worship of slaves to the worship of Allah Ta’ala. I call you away from the friendship of slaves to the Friendship of Allah. If you refuse (to accept this demand), then payment of Jizyah will be incumbent on you. If you refuse (even payment of Jizyah), thentake notice of war. Was-salaam”
This was the Tableegh and Da’wat of Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and of the Khulafa-e-Raashideen. It was this type of Tableegh which had smashed the Roman and Persian empires, and which saw their lands being annexed to the Islamic Empire. But only those who are imbued with high degrees of Taqwa are able to act in accordance with this Sunnah method of Tabligh.
Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) had also informed them:
“Three things impede you from accepting Islam: Worshipping the cross; devouring the flesh of swines, and believing that Isaa (Alayhis salaam) is the son of Allah.”
There is not the slightest semblance of inter-faith dialogue in Rasulullah’s engagement with the Najraani Christians. The Message of Islam was put forth without the slightest ambiguity and it was said with clarity that their religion of kufr was false, and that there is only one Deen of Truth, namely, Islam.
Regarding the delegation of Najraan, the Qur’aan Majeed states:
“The Truth is from your Rabb (O Muhammad!). Therefore, do not be among those who doubt. Whoever disputes with you in this matter (of the Haqq) after Knowledge (by Wahi) has come to you, then say: ‘Come! Let us call our sons and your sons, our wives and your wives, ourselves and yourselves, then we shall supplicate sincerely (and earnestly) invoking the La’nat (Curse) of Allah on the liars.” (Aal-e-Imraan, 59 and 60)
This was the challenge which Allah Ta’ala commanded Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) to issue to the Najraani Christians. The delegation had asked Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) why he was speaking ill of ‘their person’………………. Upon this Allah Ta’ala revealed the aforementioned Aayat of Mubaahalah. However, the Christians were scared, hence refused to take up the challenge. There was no inter-faith dialogue. They had to take up the challenge or admit defeat and the falsehood of their religion.
Far, very far from any bootlicking and listening to any sermon of kufr from the Najraani delegation, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) imposed on them an annual Jizyah tax of 2,000 suits of garments to be handed over each year in the month of Rajab.
Thereafter, Nabi-e-Kareem (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) told them that if they had engaged him in the Mubaahalah to in voke the La’nat of Allah Azza Wa Jal, the entire Christian population of Najraan would have been destroyed. All of them would have been transformed into apes and swines, and the entire region would have been consumed by a raging fire, and even birds would not perch on the trees of Najraan.
This then is the story of the Najraani delegation which the followers of Iblees and all other munaafiq bootlickers and modernists cite to justify kuffaar presence in the Musaajid and their kufr inter-faith dialogue. Is there any semblance of bootlicking by Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) in this episode? Did Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) obfuscate the Haqq and allow the Christians to insult the Qur’aan and Islam, and to din the ears of Muslims with such kufr and blasphemy which insult the Deen, the Qur’aan and the Nabi? Did Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) invite the Najraanis to propagate their kufr and shirk in the Musjid? But all of this evil kufr is accepted by bootlicking, munaafiq sheikhs and molvis.
By putridly and stupidly mentioning the Najraani delegation, the mudhilleen molvis and modernists hoodwink the ignorant masses into the satanic understanding that the Najraani delegation was in a dominant position and had dictated to Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) and the Muslimeen. In addition to there being not the slightest vestige of bootlicking, Rasulullah (Sallallahu alayhi wasallam) acquitted himself with belligerency. He refused to greet them. He refused to speak to them the entire day when they arrived. They were constrained to disrobe and don their old, dirty travel garments. They were issued the Mubaahalah challenge with the consequences of being transformed into apes and pigs, and finally an annual tax was imposed on them under threat of War.
