Letters of the Prophet Muhammad (saw):

Pact of Najran

In the name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful.


This pact of Muhammad (S.A.W.), Prophet of Allah is for the people of Najran.
1. Although Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.), had the power to take a share from their produce,
gold, silver, weapons and slaves, he treated the people generously and leaving aside all these
things, he fixed for them two thousand hullas of the value of one Auqia each, annually — one
thousand (to be supplied) in the month of Rajab and one thousand in the month of Safar.
2. Each Hulls shall be of the value of one Auqia and whichever is of more or less value, shall be
accounted for accordingly.
3. If instead of Hullas, something like armours or horses or riding camels are given it shall be
accepted in accordance with its evaluation.
4. It shall be obligatory on the people of Najran to arrange for the stay of my workers. But they
will have to pay taxes within one month. They should not be made to stay far more than a
month.
5. If due to a rebellion in Yemen we have to wage war, the people of Najran will have to lend 30
armours, 20 horses and 30 camels. If any of the animals are lost, the people of Najran shall be
provided substitutes.
