Employing Non-Muslims (Ahadith 1959 – 1960)

Bismillah.

Volume 3, Book 36, Number 464 :
Narrated by ‘Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa)
The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu) employed a (pagan) man from the tribe of Bani Ad-Deel and the tribe of Bani ‘Abu bin ‘Adi as a guide. He was an expert guide and he broke the oath contract which he had to abide by with the tribe of Al-‘Asi bin Wail and he was on the religion of Quraish pagans. The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu) had confidence in him and gave him their riding camels and told him to bring them to the Cave of Thaur after three days. So, he brought them their two riding camels after three days and both of them (The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu)) set out accompanied by ‘Amir bin Fuhaira and the Deeli guide who guided them below Mecca along the road leading to the sea-shore.

Volume 3, Book 36, Number 465 :
Narrated by Aisha (radiallaahu `anhaa) (the wife of the Prophet)
Allah’s Apostle (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallam) and Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu) hired a man from the tribe of Bani-Ad-Deel as an expert guide who was a pagan (follower of the religion of the pagans of Quraish). The Prophet (sallallaahu `alayhi wasallamand Abu Bakr (radiallaahu `anhu) gave him their two riding camels and took a promise from him to bring their riding camels in the morning of the third day to the Cave of Thaur.

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) hired a guide who knew the desert’s pathways very well to guide them throughout the way to Madinah to ward off any possibility of getting lost. It is also remarkable that the guide who is known by the name `Abdullah ibn Urayqit was then still a disbeliever. However, the divinely-guided Prophet hired him on the basis of having two basic qualities: professional experience as a guide and his well-known honesty.
