“In the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
From Muhammad, Messenger of Allâh to Al-Harith bin Abi Shamir.
Peace be upon him who follows true guidance, believes in it and regards it as true. I invite you to
believe in Allâh Alone with no associate, thenceafter your kingdom will remain yours.”
Shuja‘ bin Wahab had the honour of taking the letter to Harith, who upon hearing the letter read in
his audience, was madly infuriated and uttered: “Who dares to disposs me of my country, I’ll fight
him (the Prophet),” and arrogantly rejected the Prophet’s invitation to the fold of Islam.
