We want to strengthen the bond of peace between us and the Muslims
It is time to free Makkah of idol worship
It is time to bring Makkah under the control of Islam!
Rasulullah (s) left Medina
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
If you go to war you will not win Abu Sufyan! You may even die!
In the year 8 AH, The Quraysh of Makkah broke the 10 year truce and arranged an attack on a Muslim ally. When they realised they had made a mistake, they sent their leader Abu Sufyan to talk to Rasulullah in Medina
The Muslim army camped just outside Makkah
Has not the time come for you to accept that there is no God but Allah?
Rasulullah planned to move swiftly and secretly to Makkah so the Makkans would surrender peacefully
Abu Sufyan accepted Islam outwardly
Look at how powerful Allah has made your nephew!
Not my nephew but the Messenger of Allah!
He left Medina on 10th Ramadhan 8 AH with an army of 10,000. When they reached the outskirts of Medina, they broke their fasts.
Rasulullah enters Makkah on 20 Ramadhan
الله اكبرThere is no God but Allah!
The arrival of an army surprised the Makkans and Abu Sufyan came to investigate with Rasulullah's uncle Abbas. Abu Sufyan accepted Islam, but Rasulullah (s) knew his real intention.
Erm... I guess..
When Abu Sufyan saw the strong army of Rasulullah (s) he got scared and decided against resisting.
Rasulullah (s) entered the ka'bah and destroyed all the idols. The promise of Allah was fulfilled and the Muslims achieved a great victory without any bloodshed.
