HILFU ‘L-FUZUL حلف الفضول
A confederacy formed by the descendants of Hashim, Zuhrah, and Taim, in the house of ‘Abdu ‘llah ibn Jud’an at Makkah, for the suppression of violence and injustice at the restoration of peace after the Sacrilegious war. Muhammad was then a youth, and Sir William Muir says this confederacy “aroused an enthusiasm in the mind of Mahomet, which the exploits of the sacrilegious war failed to kindle.”
