His Generous Treatment of the Makkans
Allah vouchsafed to him the conquest of Makkah the people thereof were
trembling with fear at the treatment which might be meted out to them. The residents
of Madinah who had not themselves seen the tortures to which the Muslims had
been subjected and had only heard of them from other people, were very much
enraged at the thought of them. But when he entered Makkah he gathered together
the people and said ‘O ye people, I forgive today all the wrongs which you have
done to me; ye shall not be punished.’ If there had been no wars and he had not
been made a King, how could he become a perfect model for mankind and how could
he display this aspect of human morals?
