THE INCIDENT OF RASULULLAH AND THE HIGHWAY ROBBERS
When Rasulullah was undertaking the journey of emigration (Hijrah), Sa’d Raziallah told him, “O Nabi of Allah! If you take this
particular route, then it is easier and shorter (as compared to the alternate arduous and difficult route which Nabi was intending to take). However, there are two highway robbers on this way.”
Allah’s Rasul said, “Now, I want to go via this route.”
He met the two highway robbers and gave them da’wat and consequently, both of them embraced Islam.
This is the temperament of Dawah work; to lower and blend ourselves amongst those who are left normally the poor, and the general masses in order to work amongst them.
