WIFE OF ABU LAHAB could not see Holy Rasool
Jameel’ were condemned. As a result, Umm-e-Jameel became furious and lost her self-control. She came to the sacred Ka’bah bringing a huge stone. At that time, the Beloved and Blessed Rasool was reciting the Holy Quran in Salah and Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddeeq was sitting nearby. Umm-e-Jameel reached grumbling and came to Sayyiduna Abu Bakr
Siddeeq whilst passing by the Holy Rasool . She said out of extreme anger, ‘Tell me where your Rasool is? I have come to know that he has belittled me and my husband.’ Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddeeq said, ‘My Rasool is not a poet who would ridicule others.’ She became more furious, roamed around the Ka’bah in search of the
Holy Rasool whilst chattering and murmuring nonsense.
Finally, when she could not see the Holy Rasool, she left from
the sacred Haram grumbling. Whilst leaving, she said to Sayyiduna Abu
Bakr Siddeeq, ‘I came here to trample the head of your Rasool with
this rock, but alas, I could not find him.’ When Sayyiduna Abu Bakr Siddeeq
mentioned this event to the Noble Rasool, he said, ‘She passed by me many times, but an angel came between me and her in such a way that she could not see me.’ The following Ayah of the Holy Quran was revealed in relation to this event:
O Beloved, (when) you recited the Quran, We created an invisible veil between you and those who do not believe in the Hereafter.
[Kanz-ul-Iman (Translation of Quran)] (Part 15, Surah Bani Israel, Ayah 45)
(Khazaain-ul-‘Irfan, pp. 515)
Umm-e-Jameel, regardless of looking with full wide open eyes, could not see the Holy Rasool despite passing by him again and again. Undoubtedly, this is an unusual happening and it is definitely a miracle of the Holy Rasool. Such miracles were exhibited by the Great Rasool many times and there are several Wahs (friends) of Allah from whom similar miraculous marvels are exhibited. Saintly miracles exhibited by a Wah of Allah are in fact the miracles of the Beloved Rasool because a saintly miracle (Karamat) by any Wah of Allah is actually a miracle of his Nabi.
