The Amazing Story of Tufayl Ibn Amr Ad-Dawsi (Part 4)
With this du’a Tufayl رضي الله عنه returned home to his family and people. When he reached, he took up a high position from which the village homes were easily visible.
The du’a of our beloved Nabi ﷺ had already been accepted and a bright light, similar to a lantern or torch appeared between his eyes. Tufayl رضي الله عنه asked Allah Ta’ala if this light could appear elsewhere as he did not want to scare his people away.
Allah Ta’ala accepted yet another dua and moved this light towards the top of his staff or whips (which he was holding).
With this sign from Allah Ta’ala Tufayl رضي الله عنه presented Islam to his father and wife.
Allah Ta’ala had chosen the path of guidance for them and both of them accepted Islam without any hesitation.
He then presented Islam to the Daws tribe. Unfortunately, they were very hesitant and apart from a little known young man by the name Abdur Rahman Ibn Sakhr they all declined to accept Islam. Abdur Rahman Ibn Sakhr later became known as Abu Hurayrah رضي الله عنه!
Tufayl ibn Amr Ad Dawsi رضي الله عنه along with Abdur Rahman Ibn Sakhr (Abu Hurairah رضي الله عنه) travelled back to Makkah and informed our beloved Nabi ﷺ of the condition of the Daws tribe.
Tufayl رضي الله عنه was upset and had lost hope in his people and so asked our beloved Nabi ﷺ to make du’a for their destruction.
Our beloved Nabi ﷺ being the kind and merciful prophet he was, raised his hands and prayed for their guidance saying,
“O Allah Guide the Daws tribe and bring them here”.
He then asked Tufayl رضي الله عنه to return to his people and continue inviting them to Islam with affection and compassion.
Tufayl رضي الله عنه says I followed this command of Rasulullah ﷺ and returned to my people and invited them to Islam in which time, Rasulullah ﷺ and the Muslims migrated from Makkah to Madinah, the battle of Badr, Uhad and trenches took place and then finally I returned to Rasulullah ﷺ.
