A Special Day of Ramadan : One of the finest day in Muslim History, from where a lot of lessons are hidden for statesmen, in the matters of States craft; The Conquest of Makkah.
The spectacle of the Conquest of Makkah.
History witnessed a rare event that day. On 11th January, 630 (20th Ramadhan) those who were dejected and thrown out of their homes by the pagan lords of Makkah, returned as conquerors under the leadership of Mohammad (PBUH).
The revelation of Allah followed the believers "And say: Truth hath come and falsehood hath vanished away. Lo! falsehood is ever bound to vanish" [17:81]
Mohammad (Peace be upon him) was an astounding diplomat; a noble warrior whose valor knew no bounds; a visionary ideologue and a man of principles - the steadfastness of whom made it possible for those banished from their lands, to return.
Till time immemorial, the history of Fatah Makkah will resonate the lessons of leadership to the people. Those willing to pay heed to it shall never be subdued by anyone.
In light of the current situation the Muslim Ummah is facing in the West, it is evident that there is a pressing need for a better understanding of how the Muslims should live as a minority in a non-Muslim society. Sheikh Anwar Al-Awlaki sheds light upon the Quran, hadeeth and the seerah (particularly the first 13 years in Makkah) and presents lessons to the daiee’ in order to strengthen his or her methods of conveying the message of Islam to the West.
