The businessman who was an outsider didnot have anyone to support him and out of his conscience asked Quraysh if there isanyone among them who can question the injustice done to him. This greatlyembarrassed Quraysh and they entered into this Pact of Chivalry, "that henceforth theywould stand together as one man on the side of the oppressed against the oppressor until justice was done, whether the oppressed were a man of the Quraysh or one who had comefrom abroad." At a very young age, Muhammad enthusiastically joined this pact of chivalry for the establishment of justice and the protection of the weak andthe oppressed made by certain chiefs of the Quraysh. In later years, at Madinah,Muhammad used to say: "I was present in the house of Abd Allah ibn Jud'an at soexcellent a pact that I would not exchange my part in it for aherd of red camels, and if now in Islam, I were summoned to a similar pact, I wouldgladly respond."
