Monstrous camel

Once a trader visited the holy Makkaĥ. Abū Jaĥl bought some merchandise from him but stalled on payment. The trader got deeply upset and went to the people of Quraysh and said, “Is there anyone who could take pity on me and get Abū Jaĥl to pay me?” Pointing towards a person sitting at a corner of Masjid, people said, “Talk to him, he will certainly help you.” The Quraysh had sent him to that person so that Abū Jaĥl would insult that person if he approached him and they would enjoy. The merchant approached the person and narrated the whole story. He stood up, approached the house of Abū Jaĥl and knocked at the door. Abū Jaĥl asked from the inside, “Who is it?” The reply came, “Muhammad (صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم).” Abū Jaĥl came, and was aghast. He asked, “What brings you here?” The Beloved Prophet صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم said, “Why do you not pay his money?” He replied, “I am just paying him.” Then, he went inside, brought the money, handed it over to the traveller and went in. People seeing him asked, “Abū Jaĥl, you acted really strange. Didn’t you?” He replied, “When Muhammad (صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم) called my name out, I got frightened at once. As I got out, a horrifying sight was there. I saw a monstrous camel standing, which I had never seen before. So, I felt safe in obeying him quietly, otherwise that camel would have swallowed me.”

Dear Islamic brothers! اَلْـحَمْـدُ لـِلّٰـه عَزَّوَجَلَّ! How amazing the majestic support of my Beloved and Blessed Prophet صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم is! The Prophet of mankind, the Peace of our heart and mind, the most Generous and Kind صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم would help the grief-stricken and helpless people, and stand up for the rights of the oppressed. Furthermore, Allah عَزَّوَجَلَّ is also very Kind to His Prophet صَلَّی اللّٰہُ تَعَالٰی عَلَیْہِ وَاٰلِہٖ وَسَلَّم as He helps him defend from his enemies! On the other hand, Abū Jaĥl, who was a born unbeliever and deprived of the belief forever, remained unbeliever despite seeing such a great miracle with his own eyes.
