At Tabriz Gates
 
The Tatars moved towards Tabriz, a large Iranian city. In the past, they had previously accepted money, riding mounts and clothing from its governor, the drunk Uzbek ibn Al-Bahlawaan, and did not enter it just because when they came, it was severe winter. But now, since the atmosphere improved and the sky became clear, there would be no impediment to break the treaty and repeal the covenant.

But on their way to Tabriz, they received the news about the death of its governor, the drunk Uzbek ibn Al-Bahlawaan, and a new man took office, i.e. Shams Ad-Deen At-Tughraa’i, a Mujaahid who comprehended well his religion and knew his World. He, May Allaah Have mercy upon him, motivated the people to take part in Jihaad and get ready for war, and encouraged them to remain steadfast, and warned them of the evil end of slackness and indolence.

He taught them what they knew in theory and never put to practice in their life; he taught them that by no means does man die before his due time; and that both his sustenance and appointed term have been doomed to him before his coming to existence; and that whatever concessions the Muslims give to the Tatars, they will not leave them unless the Muslims protect themselves with their swords and armors, and without force, no right will be protected on the surface of the earth.

The inhabitants of Tabriz were moved by enthusiasm and stood, along with their pious leader, to fortify their town, repair the walls, widen the trenches, prepare the weapons, fix the barricades, and rearrange there rows. The people prepared themselves for Jihaad, for the first time since a very long period.
The Tatars heard about the new conditions of the city, and the state of civil agitation and general mobilization. They heard about the call for Jihaad, and how the people prepared to fight. The Tatars heard about all of this: what did they do?

Some readers may think that the Tatars were angry, enraged, spitting mad, foaming at the mouth, and the blood was boiling in their veins, their voices rose high, and mobilized their forces and decided to exterminate this reckless city.

Never, my brothers and sisters in (the religion of) Allaah! Nothing like this happened.
The Tatars made a strange decision. They decided to avoid Tabriz, and not to fight a people who raised the banner of Jihaad in the cause of Allaah. Allaah, the Almighty, cast terror into the hearts of the Tatars, despite their great multitudes, from the inhabitants of Tabriz, regardless of their fewness.

The Messenger of Allaah, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa salam, was granted victory by terror (cast in the hearts of his enemy from a distance as long as to be covered in) a month; and also everyone following his method will be granted victory by terror (cast in the hearts of his enemy from a distance as far as to be covered in) a month.

Jihaad did what was expected from it. Although the people did not actually fight, they had the true intention to fight, and got ready as much as was available to them, thereupon the Divine promise was achieved for them by Allaah, Who never breaks His promise: that is, to have awe creeps into the hearts of the enemies of the Muslim Ummah.

This is a lesson not to be forgotten: {And prepare against them whatever you are able of power and of steeds of war by which you may terrify the enemy of Allaah and your enemy and others besides them whom you do not know [but] whom Allaah Knows. And whatever you spend in the Cause of Allaah will be fully repaid to you, and you will not be wronged.} [Quran 8:60]

That was a bright image amidst this dark heap of dust. May Allaah have mercy upon Shams Ad-Deen At-Tughraa’i, who revived religion in this Muslim city!
