When the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) entered Yathrib, it was renamed ‘Medina’, meaning ‘city’. This change marked the beginning of a shift of focus in revelation; the foundations of faith laid in Mecca would now rapidly take on many new pillars of outward practice. In other words, the city of Medina would become a manifestation of the inward beliefs of the Early Muslims – personally, and civilizationally.

In this talk, Shaykh Faraz Khan of Zaytuna College discusses the three changes that the Prophet (May Allah bless him and give him peace) used to transform Yathrib: the building of the mosque, the brotherhood between the Muslims, and the treaty with those of other faiths.
