Conquest of Makkah Is About Promoting Tolerance, High Moral Values and Forgiveness

By Dr Ramesh Kumar Vankwani


May 15, 2020


So many hundreds of years ago, Muslims entered the holy city of Makkah – with dignity, glory and pride – from where they were forced to migrate.


The holy Prophet (pbuh) and his companions had to migrate to Madina but enemies of Islam tried their best to harm Muslims. In this regard, various wars were also imposed by the Quraysh in order to destabilize the Madina state.


Despite all the bitter experiences of past, the Prophet (pbuh) preferred to set an example by announcing amnesty for everyone on the occasion of the conquest of Makkah. Even, today it is highly regarded as the only applicable roadmap process to resolve bilateral conflicts for the sake of humanity.


During the holy month of Ramazan, God’s blessing is showered equally on every person and an opportunity is granted to everyone for the practical implementation of teachings based on patience, brotherhood, tolerance and endurance.


The Message, released in 1976, is one of the most popular Hollywood movies of all time. The movie, produced with the collaboration of different Middle Eastern countries, serves as an introduction to early Islamic history and important events.


The movie was released separately in both Arabic and English versions. Geo Television Network performed a wonderful job by dubbing it into Urdu language. This initiative was indeed very beneficial for many people like me who are interested to learn about the life of the last Prophet (pbuh).


The climax of this movie is really very impressive and highly laudable. In the movie, Muslims are shown angry towards the Quraysh over the violation of the peace agreement. A large number of tribes start supporting the Prophet (pbuh) for moving towards Makkah. Muslims enter Makkah with the announcements that “Even he who enters the house of Abu Sufyan will be safe, He who lays down arms will be safe, He who locks his door will be safe”.


On hearing this unbelievable notice, Hind, wife of ruler of Makkah Abu Sufyan expresses with satisfaction that no storm has come so far. The leader of Quraysh replies that an invisible storm has come but in the hearts of the people that have been won over by the last Prophet (pbuh).


After the conquest of Makkah, the Prophet (pbuh) neither took any revenge nor let others harm anyone. Open amnesty was announced for everyone. In this way, the Prophet (pbuh once again demonstrated that the message of peace, love, brotherhood, forgiveness and tolerance is not for any specific community but for every creature.


In my view, there are three major lessons that we should learn from the historical conquest of Makkah. First, we may have to face many difficulties in our life struggle but if we keep moving consistently towards right direction with a trust in God then obviously we will be successful at the end of the day. Second, we should not forget that God has promised to help those who follow the right path, and thus, there is no need to become hopeless and desperate due to temporary hurdles and obstacles.


The third lesson is about promoting tolerance, high moral values and forgiveness. History discloses that many mighty victorious rulers used to destroy cities, shed rivers of blood, and murdered their opponents along with families brutally. However, the last Prophet (pbuh) set a new example that forgiving your enemy is very important in order to achieve sustainable peace.


Today, in the holy month of Ramazan, we should promise ourselves that we will adopt a peaceful approach in our lives at any cost and never ever indulge in taking revenge. We must understand that God never disappoints anyone who puts his/her trust in Him. Therefore, we should carry on our struggle for good cause and never become hopeless over the vicious tactics adopted by our opponents.

  • My last post was addressed to Ayena, not to Hats Off.

    By Ghulam Faruki - 5/25/2020 10:22:41 PM

  • Hats Off,
    Only a moron would use the phrase "Mosque which hates others". 
    Mosques and temples do not hate anyone. Only people do. 
    My mosque does not have loud-speaker azaan. 
    The rest of your post is written in such poor English that I cannot glean your meaning, except that you seem to be expressing your usual gutter-level  hatefulness in your customary indecent and foul language.

    By Ghulam Faruki - 5/25/2020 1:27:31 PM

  • So you never go to Mosque which hate others and do mischief of loudspeaker is it right? Or double mouth I will do lip service but I will promote by going to those mosque which does loads speaker Azan, and enjoy the Friday Harreshments to All bussiness man, co-worker, manger who are not Muslims to reshedule and work around your Friday prayer.

    Speak when community all over world start to complain about your indecent behaviour, otherwise take it for granted that others have to adjust for shake of your Friday prayers.

    My comment is not about the hate, it's genuine Question but want to hide under blaming me, it's not going to help. Shout and bark I will keep my words and will repeat it as many times as much I can do, it's effects our daily life, I had said many time and every comment, as long as our day to day life is not disturbed by Muslim I do not care what they do.

    If try to fool us, I will point out every time.

  • Aayena,
    What reply do you want me to give to your hate mail. I can say rotten things about Hinduism too but I will not do so because it would put me on your low level.
    And I have been speaking out against loud speaker azaan long before you first made your hideous appearance in this forum. Should I call you a liar or just an ignoramus?

    By Ghulam Faruki - 5/24/2020 1:12:51 PM

  • So you moderate will keep creating chaos on Friday on the name of prayer,  than you modrate Muslims will not work to stop loudspeaker Aazan.
    Faruki to Fekuri, hiding under the garb of modern and secular.

  • Did you answer anything no, same blame paid agent, this is Pakistani language used by Pakistanis and fake Indians like you.

    As said you are never interested in healthy conversation, your sole idea is to fight on this form with each and everybody and make feel yourself seen as revolutionary which your are not. Keep barking, that what you do rather the answering any serious question raised by non follower of Islam which make significant effect in their life due to behaviour of Muslims.

  • Throwing mud at the religions of others is done only by ignoramuses and ill-bred idiots. Is the RSS paying you to do this?
    By Ghulam Faruki - 5/23/2020 11:38:58 PM

  • I did answer, you want to read what is in your mind, I am not prophet  with whom God talks(((If anything like what haitorically self claimed Avtar or propher  has said exist  then wish to be Avtar or Prophet, so direct communication and Wahi can come to me, som I can do what I wish with people like you)).

    Question about Manusmurity, I am not aware of  Hindu are even aware what is written in Manusmruti, we have moved from there, if it is stuck in your mind keep and use it, if you want to use for political advantage it's also not going to work, Hindus have really move, for your kind information there are many Manusmruti, it's like document that helps to govern the people Wright or wrong I cannot justify it old documents which Hindus have dumped it, it's something like constitution of India, if people personify any document and get fossilised than it is not possible  that humans can move further up in civilisational sense like your Quran is fossilised and mind of your Muslims.

    Stick to both Quran for yourself and Manusmruti to use against Hindu, which gives happiness to you in conversation by condemning Hindus with the help of manusmruti.

    I know you and your Muslims brothers do not want to move, live in your world.

    Read Anihalston of caste by Baba Ambedkar, healthy for your sick mind.

    After all you are never interested in health discussion what you want is only condimation by Like me or hatts off  RSS or BJP or Modi, so you can enjoy, very stupid mindset, have you ever read and reply my comments sciencerly on the contrary, even my satire comment or Just simple comment you reply with using bad words due you ever have any even interest in conversation, different between the sword Jihadist and you is not much, you use all faul word you, and you aspect people to answer.

    Any conversation breaks down as soon you use so much foul words, it's like someone  with sword kill than after that  killer want to still fight with dead, you are sick person, you want to do conversation which is healthy but doesn't want to follow the good rules of it, in Hinduism using bad language and words also fall into violence, more wisdomic than you " Salwar Jihad"

    I have said many time I do not know what is RSS about, I know BJP as political party, what I know they clearly write in their manifestos what they want to do, they try to achieve.

    People live in democracy everybody had to play role, you cannot aspect only one community to play role, Do you even understand what is democracy, your just want to enjoy the nice fruits of democracy to blame others which you and your Muslims brother gets from freedom of speech. it's about people freedom and Wright to choose to live as long as others freedom is not ditch.

    As far my dislikness( I personally never hate anybody) of Muslims is due to their behaviour with us has developed this dislikesness, that do not means I do not have Muslim friends, I do have they are rational and marginalised in their own community for broad ideas, I have said many time, Most of Hindu kids hate or dislikeness of Muslims will not require RSS, Muslims Day to Day actions with us is enough, not only in India but all over the world.

    Simplest statement I put if you can understand " It's Muslim Day to Day actions with others creat hate or dislikeness towards Muslims, where the all different type of community are involved for comman cause". For instance you cannot keep meeting on or programme on Friday afternoon as Muslims will definitely will go from workplace and will disturb the whole work,  due you think anybody will like to hire Muslims or can give Muslims job in assembly line, so many people have to suffer if they are hired, but people do hire and many are suffered, so either Muslims themselves should find different work or just modern Muslims like you( I do not think. you are same hardcore and no adjustably) shift the Friday Jumma to Sunday in western world and India, Is it you are going to do no.no.no.no I think you will Haresh other population in democracy to help to bring fascist force I power, you guys will never play a positive role.

    If Muslims want to real positive role, I will see in coming years atleast one Jammat has shifted their prayer day to Sunday, Is it possible with 7th century stuck minds, world will  get great relief and mangers, supervisors and co-workers will not to have adjust their schedules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!it  not going to happen tough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

    Does Islam came for mankind than as you guys claim than would have not make it neighbour worker helpless and suffering at work place!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Do my Question is valid in bringing unity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I think yes, but you guys will change what you claim your book to be!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!No. Just wake everyday come on this from and do your whataboutry for which you made mastery.

  • Aayena,
    You have not yet replied to my last post. Here it is again for you to reply to:
    "Ask Dalits if they were better treated than the way Muslims treated non-Muslims. Also read Manusmriti to see how Dalits were punished. Of course you cannot ask anything of the widows who were burned or humans who were sacrificed how they felt about their experiences. So don't give your stupid opinion about what was better and what was worse. Just know that the past histories of all of us are murky. A word to the wise is enough! Let us try to have a better future!

  • Aayena,  Dirt can be dug up from every religion but it takes a certain kind of low breed do it.
    By Ghulam Faruki - 5/22/2020 12:40:53 PM

  • Idiotic comment frfom Secularlogic who is neither secular nor logical!
    By Ghulam Faruki - 5/22/2020 12:38:52 PM

  • Thanks hatts off now he knows you are digging up the dirt of Islam, yes exactly hatts off is doing, even name change did help to change the bigotry.
    By Aayina - 5/22/2020 1:12:47 AM

  • Facts would look like whataboutery to someone like Hats Off who has only one mission namely his hate war against Islam. Constantly digging up dirt against Islam while keeping mum about atrocities of other religions is his idea of making a contribution to this forum but the rest of us know what to call such a guy!
    By Ghulam Faruki - 5/21/2020 11:24:02 PM

  • Who is Ghulam Faruqui? The same name changer who adopts false identities to enter places of worship where people of his faith are banned due to past misdemeanors?
    By secularlogic - 5/21/2020 11:19:23 PM

  • Afzal is better than Azlaf, anything more about Dalit converted Muskims ask them how they feel than left over Dalit, they are flourishing in new India.
