As Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu

Returning to Madinah:

The Muslim army returned from Tabuk victoriously, undeceived or wronged. That was because Allah had sufficed them the evils of fight.

On the way back and at a mountain road, twelve hypocrites sought the Prophet’s life and that was while he was passing along that mountain road with only Ammar (Radhi Allahu Anhu) holding the rein of his she-camel and Hudhaifa bin Al-Yaman driving it, at the time that people had already gone down into the bottom of the valley.

The hypocrites seized that opportunity to seek the Prophet’s life. As the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu 'Alayhi wa Sallam) and his two companions were moving along, they heard thrusts of people coming towards him from behind with their faces veiled. Hudhaifa (Radhi Allahu Anhu), who was sent by the Prophet to see what was going on, saw them and stroke their mounts’ faces with a crook in his hand and Allah cast fear into their hearts. They fled away and overtook their people.

However, Hudhaifa (Radhi Allahu Anhu) named them to the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) and informed him of their intentions. So that was why Hudhaifa (Radhi Allahu Anhu) was called the “confidant” of the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam). About this event Allah, the Exalted says:

“And they resolved that [plot to murder Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam)] which they were unable to carry out.” [Surah At-Taubah 9:74]

When his headquarters, Madinah, began to loom at the horizon, the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam) said: “This is a cheerful sight. This is Uhud, which is a mountain, we like it and it likes us.” When the Madinese learnt of their arrival they set out to meet the army. Women, youths, youngsters and small children went out of town to celebrate their home -return wholeheartedly singing:

“The full moon shone down upon us, through the traits of Al-Wada‘ Mountain.
Thanks is due to us, as long as a supplicator invokes to Allah..”

The Messenger of Allah’s (Sallallahu 'Alayhi wa Sallam) march to Tabuk was in Rajab and his return in Ramadan. So we see that this Ghazwah took fifty days, twenty days of which were spent in Tabuk and the others on the way to and fro. Tabuk Invasion was the last one made by the Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alayhi wa Sallam).
