For 3 years, the Muslim army held out against staggering odds. As / word of the fighting spread, other battering tribes saw God's hand/ in Muhammad's victories. One by one the peoples of the desert began to join in his struggle. The Muslim army grew and the tide began to turn.

 

The Muslim forces advanced to the outskirts of Mecca. It was a furious siege that lasted for nearly a month/. Untill finally the city fell to Muhammad. In 630 AD, the terrified people of Mecca braced for the arms of lord. Muhammad's army was returning home, now 10 thousand strong. The vanquished knew the terrible fate that have awaited them.

 

"According to the vows of the tribal warfare, the Meccans could expect a big revenge, the men are usually killed, women and children are sold into / slavery. There is little pity for the loser in a tribal war, 'coz that's a standard in our world. "

 

But Muhammad had a surprise install for the fallen city.

 

"When Muhammad came into Mecca, they not only did not carry out a bloody revenge, but actually embraced the very Meccans who had fought him for 3 years and attempted to annihilate him. It was very shocking to people and its mayor. So within the very founding of a religion, one finds episodes of great generosity,  often extrordinary acts of kindness and mercy."

 

But not all of Mecca escaped  Muhammed's draft. Flushed with the victory, his troops marched straight to the kaaba. 7 times they circled the shrine, as those who would come to seek its protecion appeal to their idols.
