The Pact of Hilful Fuzul (Waqia Hilful Fuzul)


The Pact of Hilful Fuzul

This event took place in the earlier days of youth of Nabi (s.a.w.s.). This nobly active youth gathered the youths of the tribes like Bani Hashim, Bani Asad, Bani Zuhra, Bani Qaiyim in the house of an old gentleman named Abdullah ibn Jazan and formed an organization in which oath was taken from every youth that he would help every

oppressed person in Mecca or who came to Mecca from another place and met with problems; that if someone oppresses others he will be made to give what was due to the oppressed justly. This pact was called Hilful Fuzul.

It is all the more worthwhile to hear the truth from others. Just see what an expert western historian has written:

The Hilful Fuzul organization was like an army formed by a group of brave and courageous justice-loving youths. It was constituted to ensure that each and every oppressed person gets justice and his or her dues. These soldiers were not taking any remuneration from anyone but were serving the society voluntarily. In those days the Arab Bedouins acted freely in whatever way they liked. There was none to check their behavior. If anyone from a tribe killed a member of another Arab tribe the whole tribe of the killed one would wage an all out war against the whole tribe of the killer. There were no norms for warfare.

There was neither police in Mecca nor any court. Every tribe formed their own rules. If anyone arrived in Mecca from another area and fell a victim of oppression there, he had no one to help. He would have to bear the injustice or return from Mecca , complain to his tribe who may come and fight with the Meccans in revenge. But if any tribe from outside arrived to fight with any Meccan tribe, it was being regarded as an insult to the tribe of Quraish and all the Meccan tribes would jointly fight with the outsiders. Therefore, hardly any tribe from out of Mecca ever dared to wage a war with Meccans.

In such circumstances the above-mentioned youths of Hilful Fuzul used to help every oppressed person. They gathered

around the Holy Ka’ba and swore that they would never forget their responsibility of assisting every oppressed person and would assure that the oppressed one got his rightful dues, even if the oppressor was the richest or the most influential person. That is why these volunteers used to rush to help even if the oppressed one did not belong to Mecca , even if he came from another part of the country.

The Holy Prophet (s.a.w.s.) himself once said: The best part of my past life was spent in the activities of Hilful Fuzul. That service has given me much honor and respect. I would not have stepped out of that agreement even if I were to be offered one hundred red camels.

The same western author writes further: This noble formation of Hilful Fuzul was the main achievement of the youthful days of Nabi(s.a.w.s.),It is noteworthy that the idea of providing justice to everyone came to Nabi (s.a.w.s.) at a time when nobody there even thought of any kind of human rights. Thus it was a very big revolution in social life. His activities weakened all oppressors and when the Holy Quran spread its light every sort of ignorance and darkness was removed from the land. Before that no one ever dared to question an oppressor.

In addition to the aforesaid moral virtues Nabi (s.a.w.s.) was full of God-given intelligence and wisdom. Otherwise how could he be a prophet? His power of making the most appropriate decisions in every social, personal or political problem was extremely wonderful.

Huzoor Ne Jawab Diya Aur Farmaya, Iski Awaaz Jinno Ki-Si Hain, Fir Aapne Usse Daryaft Kiya, Tu Kaun Hain? Usne Arz Kiya, Main Jinn Hoon! Mera Naam Hama Hain, Beta Heem Ka Aur Heem Beta Laakis Ka Aur Laakis Beta Iblis Ka! Huzoor Ne Farmaya, To Goya Tere Aur Iblis Ke Darmiyan Sirf 2 Pusht Hain! Fir Farmaya, Accha!

Huzoor, Jin Dino Kaabil Ne Haabil Ko Qatl Kiya Tha Us Waqt Main Kayi Baras Ka Baccha Hi Tha, Magar Baat Samajhta Tha! Pahaadon May Daudta Firta Tha! Logon Ka Khana Wa Galla Chori Kerliya Karta Tha! Logon Ke Dilon May Wasvase Bhi Daalta Tha Ki Wo Apne Khwesh Wa Akraba Se Badh-Suluki Karen!

Hazrat Isa Alaihi Salam Ne Farmaya Tha Ki Agar Tu Mohammad SALLALLAHU-ALAIHI-WASALLAM Se Mulakaat Karen To Mera Salam Unko Pahuchana! So Huzoor! Ab Main Is Amanat Se Subuk-Dosh Hone Ko Haazir Hua Hoon Aur Yeh Bhi Aarzu Hain Ki Aap Apni Jubaan-A-Haq Tarjmaan Se Mujhe Kuch Kalamullah Taalim Farmayiye! Huzoor Alaihi Salam Ne Use Sur-A-Mursalaat, Sur-A-Amma-Ya-Ta-Saa-Aloon.. Ikhlaas Aur Mu-aawizatain Aur Ijash-Shams.. Taalim Farmayi! Yeh Bhi Farmaya Ki, Aye Hama! Jis Waqt Tumeh Koi Ehtiyaaz Ho Fir Mere Paas Aajana Aur Humse Mulakaat Na Chhodna!

Hazrat Umar Radi-Allahu-Anhu Farmate Hain, Huzoor Alaihi Salam Ne To Visaal Farmaya Lekin Hama Ki Baabat Fir Kuch Na Farmaya! Khuda Jane Hama Ab Bhi Zinda Hain Ya Margaya!
