"Verily my solats, my ibadah, my life and my death I surrender to Almighty Allah, Creator and Lord of all the worlds. Never will I associate anything with Him. So am I commanded and I am of those who are Muslims."

An Amazing Episode after the Conquest of Makkah.

The Messenger of Allah, Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam stayed in Makkah for 19 days after successfully taking over the holiest city on Earth for Muslims.

During that period, he used to define the ways to Islam and guided people back to the orthodox path that was commanded by Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala to mankind through all the earlier prophets and messengers before him.

To Islamic Monotheism. Worship of Allah alone and none other! La ila ha ill lall Lahh!

He ordered Abu Usaid Al-Khuza'i to restore the pillars of the Holy Sanctuary, sent missions to all quarters, inviting them to adopt Islam and break down the graven images still lying in the vicinity of Makkah, and he did have all of them scrapped, inculcating in the believers' ears his words: " Whoever believes in Allah and the Hereafter is supposed to scrap out the idols that should happen to be in his house."

Shortly after the great conquest of Makkah from the Quraish Kaffir Arabs, the Prophet Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam began to despatch platoons and errands aiming at eliminating the last symbols reminiscent of pre-Islamic practices.

He sent Khalid Al-Waleed in Ramadhan 8 A.H. to a spot called Nakhlah where there was an idol of a goddess called 'Al-'Uzza venerated by the Quraish and Kinanah tribes. It had custodians from Bani Shaiban.

Khalid, at the head of thirty horsemen arrived at the spot and exterminated it!

On his return, the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam asked him if he had seen anything there to which Khalid gave a negative answer.

Here, he was told by the Prophet that it (the goddess) had not been properly destroyed and he had to return to the place again and fulfill the task!

Khalid Al-Waleed returned to the spot again and he saw a black woman, naked with torn hair.

This is the Iblis @ demon who had been enjoying the misguidance of the Kaffir Quraish and Kinanah tribes worshipping of it!

Khalid drew out his sword and cut the demon into two parts! He then returned to the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam and narrated the incident to the Holy Messenger who affirmed the completion of the task and fulfillment of the mission!

Later, in the same month, 'Amr bin Al-'As was sent on an errand by the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam to destroy another idol whih was venerated by Hudhail called Suwa'. It used to stand at a distance of three kilometers from Makkah.

On a question posed by the doorkeeper, 'Amr said that he had been ordered by the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam to knock down the idol!

The man warned 'Amr that he would not be able to do it. 'Amr was surprised to see someone still in the wrong, believing that an idol could have any powers to defend itself, thus he went straight up to the idol and destroyed it and broke the casket besides it but found nothing inside!

The doorkeeper realised his stupidity protecting a manmade idol all these while and immediately embraced Islam! Subhanallah!

Sa'd bin Zaid Al-Ashhali was also sent in the same month and on the same idol-destroying mission to Al-Mashallal to destroy an idol, Al-Manat, venerated by both the Al-Aws and Al-Khazraj tribes.

Here too, a black woman, naked with messy hair appeared wailing and beating on her chest when the idol was smashed to the ground by Sa'd!

Sa'd immediately killed her and broke the casket and returned to report to the Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam of his mission being fully accomplished!

Such is the reality of idol worshipping! Who takes refuge in them but the Syaitan and Iblis Laknatullah!

Mankind need to know that God Almighty, Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala is the Only Supreme Creator of us all whom we must submit to and obey His Will!

Failure to worship the Almighty will only see them worshipping the Demons and the Devils let loose on this mortal plane to mislead them to their ruin in the Hereafter!

Na'uzu billahi min zalik. Study about Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala and do not let your lifes go to waste! Information is so widely available today. If you take the time to learn about Him, surely He will guide you to the Truth! Insya Allah.
