Good morning Sister Yumna, I never knew Jewish settlers lived in Madinah. It is heartbreaking to know the experience of Abdullah ibn Salam once he declared that Prophet is a messenger of God. Someone who has that level of integrity and discipline can easily find a Messenger of God instantly. It is unfortunate that people are too tied to the religion disowning him quickly forgetting Rabbi is a man of great integrity and spiritual discipline. That feeling of not thinking outside the box to recognize the Messenger of God is deeprooted for thousands of years. Frankly, mostly the Messengers of God had more criticism than following during their lifetime. People recognize their credentials as one who came to direct the human beings towards right living only after hundreds of years after they left their mortal coil.
