Catherine of Siena, have become an Italian classic; yet perhaps the first thing in them to strike a reader is their unliterary character. He only will value them who cares to overhear the impetuous outpourings of the heart and mind of an unlettered daughter of the people, who was also, as it happened, a genius and a saint.
Period of Revelation The Surah discusses three important events which are: These historical events accurately determine the period of the revelation of this Surah. Their high state of morale can be judged from the events that occurred in the first year after Uhud.
Hardly two months had passed then the tribe of Bani Asad of Najd began to make preparations for a raid on Madinah, and the Holy Prophet had to dispatch an expedition under Abu Salamah to counteract them.
Accordingly six of the Companions were allowed to accompany them for the purpose. But when they reached Raji a place between Rabigh and Jeddahthey summoned Hudhail against them, who killed four of the Companions, and took the other two Hadrat Khubaib bin Adi and Hadrat Zaid bin ad-Dathinnah to Makkah and sold them to the enemy.
Then in the same month of Safar, on the request of a chief of Bani Amir, the Holy Prophet sent another deputation of 40 according to others, 70 preachers, consisting of the Ansar young men, to Najd.
But they were also betrayed. Then in Jamadi al-Ula, A. Thus, after their setback at Uhud, the Muslims went on encountering repercussions continuously for seven to eight months.
Disunity and conflict - Quakers and John Bunyan The people who formed different movements within christian thought in the 17th century read the English Bible dilligently - and reached different conclusions.

The economic boycott by the Arabs had made life hard for the people of Madinah. All the polytheistic tribes around Madinah were becoming rebellious. Inside Madinah itself the Jews and the hypocrites were beat upon mischief. But the successive steps taken by a handful of the sincere Muslims, under the leadership of the Holy Prophet, not only restored the image of strength of Islam in Arabia but also increased it manifold.
The very next day when quite a large number of Muslims lay wounded and the martyrdom of the near and dear ones was being mourned in many houses, and the Holy Prophet himself was injured and sad at the martyrdom of his uncle, Hadrat Hamzah, he called out to the devoted servants of Islam to accompany him in pursuit of the pagans so as to deter them from returning and attacking Madinah again.
He knew that, although the Quraish had retreated without taking any advantage of their almost complete victory, they would certainly regret their folly when they would halt and consider the whole matter coolly on the way, and would return to attack Madinah again.
Therefore, he decided to go in pursuit of them, and of of the Muslims at once volunteered to accompany him. When they reached Hamra al-Asad on the way to Makkah and camped there for three days, the Holy Prophet came to know through a sympathetic non- Muslim that Abu Sufyan had stayed at Ar-Rauha, 36 miles short of Madinah, with an army 2, strong: But when they heard that the Holy Prophet was coming in pursuit of them with an army, they lost heart and gave up their plan.
Thus, not only were the Quraish deterred by this action but the other enemies living around Madinah also realized that the Muslims were being led by a person, who was highly well informed, wise and resolute, and that the Muslims were ever ready to lay down their lives at his command.
Thus, before they could come in force to attack Madinah, he sent an army strong, under Hadrat Abu Salamah the first husband of Hadrat Umm Salamah to punish them. They took Bani Asad by surprise, who fled in panic leaving all their possessions behind, which fell into the Muslim hands.
After this came the turn of the Bani an-Nadir. The day they plotted against the life of the Holy Prophet, and the secret was disclosed, the Holy Prophet ordered them to leave Madinah within ten days and warned that anyone who remained behind after that would be put to death.
Abdullah bin Ubayy, the chief of the hypocrites of Madinah, encouraged them to defy the order and refuse to leave Madinah. He even promised to help them with 2, men, and assured them that the Bani Ghatafan from Najd also would come to their aid.Book of Mormon Lesson Summaries.
