Three Days in Makka

In 7th A.H, Holy Prophet along with two thousand followers went to Makka to performed Umra. Since all the Muslims were going for the sake of pilgrimage of Ka'aba, they did not have any weapon except their swords. In those days sword was not considered an arm rather it was one of the articles of wearing apparel for Arabs.

When the Muslims entered Makka, people of Quraish fearing an attack from Muslims went to nearby hills. Before entering into the city, Holy Prophet assigned the duty of watching over to a cavalry regiment of one hundred Muslims and told them that if the Quraisah would attack them, they should come to rescue them otherwise they were to stay there till their return. Mohammad Bin Muslma was appointed the captain of the regiment and stationed at a place in the suburbs of Makka known as Mara-al-Zuhran.

The infidels were watching over the scene of Muslims entering the city from the hills. They were amazed to see the obedience and respect of the followers of Holy Prophet for their leader and disciple with which they were performing the rites of pilgrimage. When the rites of pilgrimage were over, in order to strengthen the ties with Quraish, Holy Prophet married Memona Bint Haras a lady from a respectable family of Quraish. On this occasion Holy Prophet on the third day of his stay in the city, announced a banquet to celebrate his wedding.

When Quraish had the news of the banquet by the Holy Prophet a delegation came to Holy Prophet and said, "According to the agreement you could have stayed in the city for three days and today is the third day so you better be getting out." Honoring the agreement Holy Prophet cancelled the banquet and left Medina.
