Hasib Noor

After the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ returned to Makkah during its conquest, everyone wondered if the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ would stay in Makkah now that he had control over it. However, he didn't remain in Makkah. What prompted the Prophet's decision?

TRANSCRIPTION
In the eighth year, after many long years of the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ going through suffering and torture and even physical harm, the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ entered into Makkah, known as Fath Makkah, the Conquest of Makkah, in the eighth year of Hijrah. And the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ, when he entered, many people within the city, as well as those in Madinah wondered if the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ would stay in Makkah now that he has returned to it, or he would go back home.

And the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ had gathered everyone and he brought the Ansaar, the citizens of Madinah, and he said to them, what is it that you worry about? And they said that, Ya Rasoolullah, we worry about that you will stay back and go back to your homeland. And the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ smiled at them and said, isn't Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'aala the One who gathered you when you were separated? And they said, yes, Ya Rasoolullah.

And the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ said, hayati hayatukum wa mamati mamatukum, that my life is with you and my death is with you. And my home is Madinah." And lastly, the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ himself, when he was in Madinah, he made one of the most beautiful du'aas. He said, O Allah, make Madinah beloved to us like you have made Makkah beloved to us, and even moreso. So Madinah became more beloved to the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ and he knew that Allah Subhanahu wa Ta'aala would take his soul, when he would pass away in the city of the Prophet صَلَّى اللَّهُ عَلَيْهِ وَسَلَّمَ Al-Madinah, and that is why he returned to it.
