|Next we went to a mosque that was built on the site where the angel Gabriel (Gibreel in Arabic) appeared to the Prophet Mohammed, who was basically being attacked by the locals he was trying to convert to Islam. They didn't appreciate his efforts, so they were throwing rocks at him. Gabriel appeared and told the Prophet, and I'm paraphrasing, "I can destroy these people, if they're bothering you." And the Prophet said (again, paraphrasing), "Nah, that's ok. I'll show them mercy because I want them to see the truth."|
So anyway, this picture shows the spot where one of the rocks that was being thrown at Mohammed is placed. According to our tour guide, this rock has the imprint of the Prophet's hands (although another local claimed it was his elbow) from where he caught it..or something like that. The story got a big muddled.
Anyway, the Saudis have since covered that rock with concrete because they didn't want it to become a pilgrimage site.
Good Day, you are so great because you reach taif, anyway, i will like to inform you that bilal ibn rabah(r.a) is not a slave of Prophet (s.a.w) but he is a companion of Prophet s.a.wReplyDelete
