An examination of Prof. Tahir’s embellished narrative of the Najran and Abyssinian delegations

The arrival of the delegations of Najrān and Abyssinia is being misquoted and misused by unscrupulous or ignorant people and a distorted picture is slowly gaining credence; hopefully, this paper will clarify misconceptions and doubts planted by enemies of religion. Indeed, the Prophet sallAllāhu `alayhi wa sallam was exemplary in his kindness and politeness, but he never condoned false beliefs, nor did he encourage people to remain on their own false ideas about God and religion.
