incredible historic event and reaction to the
letter sent to the Christian King of Abyssinia
(Ethiopia) as reported in Bulletin 50 continues;
the Apostolic letter was communicated to Negus
by the emissary, he took the parchment and placed
it on his eye, descended to the floor, confessed
his faith in Islam and wrote the following reply
to the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
the Name of Allâh, the Most Beneficent,
the Most Merciful. From Negus Ashama to Muhammad,
the Messenger of Allâh. Peace be upon
you, O Messenger of Allâh! and mercy and
blessing from Allâh beside Whom there
is no god. I have received your letter in which
you have mentioned about Jesus and by the Lord
of heaven and earth, Jesus is not more than
what you say. We fully acknowledge that with
which you have been sent to us and we have entertained
your cousin and his companions. I bear witness
that you are the Messenger of Allâh, true
and confirming (those who have gone before you),
I pledge to you through your cousin and surrender
myself through him to the Lord of the worlds.”
Prophet (peace be upon him) had asked
Negus to send Ja‘far and his companions,
the emigrants to Abyssinia (Ethiopia), back
home. They came back to see the Prophet (peace
be upon him) in Khaibar. Negus later died
in Rajab 9 A.H. The Prophet (peace be upon
him) announced his death and observed prayer
in absentia for him.
