THE PEACE DEAL:

When he was about 25 years old, Muhammad, the exalted, helped formulate a very important document. He sat down with the influential leaders of the town. Keeping in mind the insecurity of that society, they reached the following conclusions:-

01. Travel must be made safe.
02. Tribal raids must be halted.
03. The poor must be helped.
04. The weak must be protected. Most tribes of Makkah agreed with the idea.

Their leaders signed this historical document, Halaf-il-Fudhool (The Vow of Bounty, also named as such since three of those tribal leaders were named Fadhl) and hung it on the door of Ka'bah.


BRITISH KNIGHTS FOLLOW SUIT IN THE 16TH CENTURY:

It is interesting to note that 1000 years later the United Kingdom adopted this historical document. In the 16th century Britain, any person becoming a knight had to pledge his allegiance to the above mentioned four rules.

Dear brother,

You can easily find it in any good book on SEERAH (noble biography) of the exalted Prophet, for example in SEERATUNNABI by Allama Shibli Na'mani, RAHMATALLIL'AALAMEEN by Qazi Sulaiman Salman Mansoorpuri, and, I suspect, also in Urdu and English Ar-Raheeqil-Makhtoom.

I am not aware of an Internet connection about it but others might know it.

Searching under FUDHOOL or FUDHUL might be more productive.

May Allah bless you!
