As soon as the Messenger of Allâh (ﷺ) had entered Madinah, he prayed two Rak‘a then he sat to receive his people. The hypocrites who were over eighty men came and offered various kinds of excuses and started swearing. The Prophet acknowledged their excuses and invoked Allâh’s (سبحانه وتعالى) forgiveness for them but he entrusted their inner thoughts and Faith to Allâh(سبحانه وتعالى).
As for the three faithful believers — Ka‘b bin Malik, Murara bin Ar-Rabi‘, and Hilal bin Omaiyah — who favored telling the truth, the Messenger of Allâh (ﷺ)bade his Companions not to talk to them. Consequently they were subject to a severe boycott and were excluded from the life of the community.
Everybody turned them their back. So they felt as if the whole land had become constrained to them in spite of its spaciousness and they felt awkward and uneasy. The hard times they lived and which lasted for over forty days were towered by an order to them to forsake their wives. After fifty days’ boycott Allâh(سبحانه وتعالى) turned to them and revealed vindication.
