The envoys had not mastered their language and do not know how the character of the kings. They will invite the kings to abandon their religion, authority and power to release them, then embrace a religion that before these followers coming from their own communities. This is a very risky journey. Life and return safely or die there.

Because the noble task and this weight, the Prophet gathered his companions and preach to them. After saying hamdalah read the creed, the Prophet said, "Amma ba'du. Indeed, I intend to send you to the king majority of non-Arab. So you do not hostile to them as the children of Israel to Isa Ibn Maryam. "

At that time, D'Andrea told guards to call the court officials to attend assemblies. They also present everything. Afterwards, Abdullah Ibn Huzhafah allowed to enter the palace.

Abdullah enter upon D'Andrea simply by wearing thin clothes, scarves are sewn thick. He was so reflects the simplicity of the Arabs.

However, he was a tall strapping, broad shoulders and provides for the glory of Islam, strong faith has taken root in his heart. When D'Andrea saw firmly and told one of his bodyguards took the letter in his hand, Abdullah said, "No. Prophet told me to give it to you straight and I do not want to violate the trust of the Prophet. "

D'Andrea was told his bodyguard, "Let him give it to me."Then Abdullah approached D'Andrea and handed over the letter. Then D'Andrea call an Arab writer of Hirah and told him to open the letter in his hand and read the letter to him.

Then he drove Abdullah ibn Huzhafah of the palace. Abdullah was immediately out. Abdullah ibn Huzhafah out of the palace D'Andrea and she did not know what would happen to him. Killed or left free? However, he remained confident and said, "By Allah, I do not care what happens after I submit a letter of the Apostle."

Then he was riding his horse and go. After D'Andrea anger subsided, he ordered his guards to call Abdullah, but Abdullah is not there. They were looking for him in every place. They looked it up on the way to the Arab and they just found a used trail.

When Abdullah to the Messenger, he told him what had happened about D'Andrea who tore his letter. Hearing this, the apostle simply said, "God will destroy the kingdom."

Then, D'Andrea told his deputy, Badzan, in Yemen to send two strong people of Hijaz to follow Abdullah and bring it back. Then Badzan sent two men to meet her choice Messenger of Allaah alaihi wasallam to deliver a letter. The letter shows that the Apostle let people bring Abdullah to D'Andrea immediately. Badzan asked the two men met Apostles and expressed his concern.

Then the two men were soon departed. When he reached the Ta'if, he met the traders of Quraysh and asked them about the Prophet of Allaah alaihi wasallam. They replied, "He is now in Yathrib."The traders had brought the good news to Mecca. They tell the good news to the Quraish and said, "Cheer up.

The next day, the envoy returned to the Prophet of Allaah alaihi wasallam and said, "Do you have prepared what we will take to see D'Andrea?"

The Prophet said, "You two are not going to see D'Andrea after today. God will kill him. On this night, this month, his son, Syirawaih will kill him. "

They stared at the face of the Messenger of Allaah alaihi wasallam, they look very furious and said, "Do you realize what you said? We would accuse him Badzan. "

The Messenger of Allaah alaihi wasallam replied, "Please! Tell him, 'My religion will be up and spread across the kingdom D'Andrea.' And you, if you converted to Islam I will make you king for your people. "

The two envoys went from the presence of the Messenger of Allaah alaihi wasallam. They immediately went to see Badzan and told him what had happened. Badzan said, "If it is true what you say, it means that he really was a prophet. If not, we will see what will happen. "

Not long ago they shared Badzan, there came a letter from Syirawaih, "I have killed D'Andrea to avenge our people. He has killed people we Gentlemen, our charming women, and robs our treasures. If this letter came to hand, then I am now is your king. "
