Who Wrote Hudaibiya Agreement

It is said that once at the time of the conquest, a singing girl was brought to al-Muhajir b. Abu Umayya, who had publicly sung satirical poems about Hadrat Abu Bakr. Muhajir had his hand amputated. When the Caliph heard this news, he was shocked and wrote a letter to Muhajir in these terms: Although the two parties agreed on the terms, the treaty is unquestionably in favour of the Quraian side. Nevertheless, the Prophet s.a.w saw something that his companions did not see in the treaty, an opportunity to strengthen initiatives to strengthen community and nation initiatives in Madinah. For Madinah to prosper, securing peace on its border is indeed a strategic decision of the Prophet Muhammad S.A.W. The acceptance and adherence of the prophet s.a.w to the conditions, despite its imbalances, should ensure peace and not be involved in eternal conflict and war. From the content of the treaty, there are three things that the prophet s.a.w could benefit from Madinah and ultimately Islam with regard to the buildings of the community: 1) religious freedom was observed, which is not practiced in Makkah It is enshrined in the treaty that the people of Makkah declare their faith as Muslims and therefore, practice Islam. Permission is only required to leave Makkah if they intend to join the Prophet Muhammad s.a.w and his companions to live in Madinah.

Freedom of religion is an important element in the construction of communities. In his book on international relations, Abu Zahrah mentioned nine essential principles for maintaining and facilitating good human relations between Muslims and non-Muslims. One of them is religious freedom, as stated in the Quran: after Hudaibiyah`s return, and then towards the end of the 6th year of hijrah, the prophet S.a.w. wrote letters to the kings then present to introduce the message of Islam. It was reported that the prophet s.a.w sent messengers to 10 kings, to name a few; Najashi of Habsyah, Muqawqis of Egypt, Kisra or Khosrov of Persia and Qaisar or Caesar of Rome and this is recorded in `Ar-Rahiqul Makhtum` or The Sealed Nectar by As-Sheikh Sofiyurrrahman Al-Mubarakfurii. The suspension of war activities for ten years – in accordance with the treaty – neutralized the long state of conflict in the region between the Muslims of Madinah and Quraisch of Makkah.
