3. At the end of Haj( it is the event when Haj was not a  farz--compulsory), Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) was Delivering a massage, inviting people to accept islam. Six jews met Prophet Muhammad (S. A. W.) and embraced Islam. Those Jews knew that a Prophet was about to come and he would be the last one.

4. These six new Muslims return to Madina (then Yasrab) and preached Islam. Next year on the same spot of "Uqba" some other Yasrab Jews came and accepted Islam with open heart. Because of this fact, this place is called "Bait-ul-Awwal"(first acceptance) and "Bait-ul-Sani"(second acceptance)

Syedna Ayub ansari --who latter got the honour to become the first host of beloved prophet Muhammad sallalla ho allihi wasalam when HE sallalla ho allihi wasalam came to madina---was also among those people who had  come here (uqba)  to accept islam. Syedna Ayub ansari did not know at that time that the day would come when he would be the host of beloved prophet and he would become the important and memorial part of islamic history.
