The Plot to Murder the Holy Prophet of Islam
Dawn had hardly broken when the infidel Quraysh were informed of the allegiance of the Yathribi Muslims. They hurriedly attempted to frustrate it and hinder the advance of Islam. For this purpose, they held a council in the place where the Quraysh gathered to pass judgment and to consult each other. After a great deal of talk and consultation, it was resolved that they select one man from each tribe to rush into the house of the Prophet at night and murder him so that the basis of the propagation of Islam would be destroyed.
But Almighty God made the Holy Prophet aware of the intrigue of his enemies and commanded him to leave Makkah by night. The Prophet, upon receiving this revelation, decided to leave his homeland and migrate to Yathrib.
