Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri (ra) said that some people (the Jews of Banu Quraysh) came down at the command of Sa’d bin Mu’az. He was called and he came riding a donkey. When he approached the mosque, the Prophet (ﷺ) said, "Rise up for one better than you", or he said "Rise up for your chief. And he also said, "O Sa’d these people have come down on your orders". Sa’d said, "Those of them that are their fighting men should be slain and their young children should be made captives". The Prophet (ﷺ) said, "You have judged according to Allah’s decree", or he said, "You have decided in the light of the King’s command.)

حَدَّثَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ عَرْعَرَةَ، قَالَ‏:‏ حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، عَنْ سَعْدِ بْنِ إِبْرَاهِيمَ، عَنْ أَبِي أُمَامَةَ بْنِ سَهْلِ بْنِ حُنَيْفٍ، عَنْ أَبِي سَعِيدٍ الْخُدْرِيِّ، أَنَّ نَاسًا نَزَلُوا عَلَى حُكْمِ سَعْدِ بْنِ مُعَاذٍ، فَأَرْسَلَ إِلَيْهِ، فَجَاءَ عَلَى حِمَارٍ، فَلَمَّا بَلَغَ قَرِيبًا مِنَ الْمَسْجِدِ قَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ ائْتُوا خَيْرَكُمْ، أَوْ سَيِّدَكُمْ، فَقَالَ‏:‏ يَا سَعْدُ إِنَّ هَؤُلاَءِ نَزَلُوا عَلَى حُكْمِكَ، فَقَالَ سَعْدٌ‏:‏ أَحْكُمُ فِيهِمْ أَنْ تُقْتَلَ مُقَاتِلَتُهُمْ، وَتُسْبَى ذُرِّيَّتُهُمْ، فَقَالَ النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم‏:‏ حَكَمْتَ بِحُكْمِ اللهِ، أَوْ قَالَ‏:‏ حَكَمْتَ بِحُكْمِ الْمَلِكِ‏.‏
