Heraclius, Negus and Muqauqis received the letter from the Prophet peace be and blessings upon him with all due respect that each gave a
courteous reply. Negus and Muqauqis showed the highest regard to the envoys. Chosroes II was indignant, he tore the letter into pieces, saying, ʺMy slave dares to write me thus!ʺ
When his reply was conveyed to the Prophet peace be and blessings upon him, he said, ʺeven so shall God shatter his kingdom to pieces.ʺ (At‐Tabari, Vol. III, pp. 90‐91)
Choroes II wrote to Badhan, who was his governor in Yemen, to get the Prophet sent to him in Ctesiphon.
Badhan deputed Babwayh to tell the Prophet (peace be and blessings upon him) what Choroes II had written to him and that he had come to
take him to the King. But when Babwayh came to Medinah, the Prophet peace be and blessings upon him told him. ʺGod has given Sherveh power his father and he has killed Choroes II.ʺ
