would find Muhammad , they would crush his (blessed) head with some stone. When the Holy Rasool visited the blessed Ka’bah to offer Salah, Abu Jahl chased after him whilst holding a very huge stone in his hands. He lifted it above his head in order to throw it on the Rasool of Rahmah but both of his hands came to his neck, the stone stuck to his hands, both of his wrists became tied to his chin and he returned unsuccessful in his mission.
The next day, Waleed Bin Mughayrah rebuked him and said, ‘Give me that st one. I will crush his (blessed) head with it.’ Therefore, this wicked soul intended to throw the rock on the blessed head of the Rasool of Rahmah when he was offering Salah. But all of a sudden, he became blind. He could hear the sound of the recitation of the Beloved and Blessed Rasool but was unable to see him, and ultimately had to return where he could not even see his friends. When he called for them, his friends asked him what had happened. He told his pathetic story. Then the third person furiously took the stone in his hand, but the moment he reached near the Revered and Renowned Rasool he ran back nervously. Whilst gasping and trembling, he told his friends that when he reached near him, he saw such a terrifying bull waving his tail that he had never seen such in his life ever before. He swore by Laat and ‘U zza, ‘If I had gone near him, it would have killed me.’
(Iafseer Saawi, vol. 5, pp. 1706; Surah Yaseen, Ayah 8-9)
The Holy Quran has mentioned this event in the following words of Surah Yaseen:
We have indeed put chains around their necks reaching up to the chins, so they remain facing upwards. And We have set a harrier in front of them and a harrier behind them, and covered them from above, so they see nothing.
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 22, Surah Yaseen, Ayah 8-9)
It was one of the great miracles of the N abi of Rahmah . Many a time infidels hatched murder plans and tried their best, but they could not harm the Beloved and Blessed Rasool even in the least and following Divine revelation was fulfilled:
And Allah will protect you from (being martyred from) the people. [Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 6, Surah Al-Mai’dah, Ayah 67)
