Tabâlah and Jurash
(105 words)

Arabic text

[59c] Bakr ibn-al-Haitham from az-Zuhri:—The people of Tabâlah and Jurash1 accepted Islam without resistance.2 The Prophet left them on the terms agreed upon when they became Moslems, imposing on every adult of the “People of the book”3 among them one dînâr, and making it a condition on them to provide the Moslem wayfarers with board and lodging. Abu-Sufyân ibn-Ḥarb was assigned by the Prophet as the governor of Jurash.[59cc]
