THE TENTH AND ELEVENTH YEARS OF HIJRAT

THE TENTH YEAR OF HIJRAT

1. In this year, the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) performed the Hajjatul Widaa (The Farewell Hajj).

2. After Hajjatul Widaa, the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) gave a sermon whilst seated on his camel, Qiswa.

3. The Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) gave a very lengthy Khutba at Mina in which he explained various laws and commands.

4. On the same journey, the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) delivered the sermon of Ghazeer-e-Khum. [Bukhari – Zirkani – Madaarij]

THE ELEVENTH YEAR OF HIJRAT :

1. In this year, The Surya (Jaish) Usama took place. This was the last Army that was sent out on the command of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam). On Monday the 26th of Safar 11 Hijri, the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) asked the Sahaba to prepare for battle against the Romans and on the next day, He (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) summoned Hazrat Usama bin Zaid (radi Allahu anhu) and said, I have appointed you as the commander of this army. Hazrat Usama (radi Allahu anhu) went to his battalion and was ready to leave on the 12th of Rabi-ul-Awwal, 11 Hijri, when he heard that the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) was not in very good health (in the eyes of the world). He immediately returned to Madinah Munawwarah (with his battalion which was just outside the city), and on that day, the 12th of Rabi-ul-Awwal, the Beloved Rasool (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) travelled into the hereafter. Inna Iil laahi wa Inna ilaihir Raajioon.

2. Hazrat Abu Bakr Siddique (radi Allahu anhu) was appointed as the Khalifa and as per the command of the Prophet (sallal laahu alaihi wasallam) Hazrat Usama (radi Allahu anhu) went to battle against the Romans and was victorious. He returned to Madinah Munawwarah after forty days. [Zirkani – madarijun Nabuiwat – Bukhari]
