Land of Light (60)

Land of Light (60)

Welcome to the 60th weekly episode of the series Land of Light. If you recall, last week we spoke of the gathering called “Zu’l-Ashira” in which as per the commandment to God, Prophet Mohammad (Blessings of God upon him and his progeny), invited his kinsmen to a grand banquet to announce his universal mission of Islam. At this gathering, where the Prophet was initially given blank looks, while his uncle Abu Taleb watched in a silence of approval, the young pre-teen Imam Ali (PBUH), responding positively to the Prophet’s call, volunteered to be his assistant, and was proclaimed by the elder cousin as “my brother, my vicegerent and my testamentary legatee among the ummah.” This incensed the seditious Abu Lahab who mocked at the proceedings. Now, having delivered the message to his kinsmen, the Prophet decided to extend his invitation of monotheism to the different clans of the Qoraish. Let’s listen to the rest of the story.
