Lesson


Allah Almighty commands: We did not call anyone of you for help of Our Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and His Companion (May God be pleased with Him) at that time, but there was no occasion of any mankind’s help. Our Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and His Companion {Abu Bakr (May God be pleased with Him)} both were alone in the Cave (Sawr) and the Infidels were standing at the mouth of the Cave.

Abu Bakr (May God be pleased with Him) was confused that if they looked down; then certainly they would see Them. At that time, God Almighty took work from the spider and a pair of pigeons. The spider wove its web at the mouth of the Cave and the pair of pigeons laid their eggs there. The Infidels inferred by seeing the spider’s web safe and sound and sitting there; a pair of pigeons that if someone would have entered in the Cave; then neither this web would have been remained stable and nor the pair of pigeons could remain sitting satisfactorily in their nest directly over the door of the Cave.

It was apparent help by Allah Almighty, whereas hidden support was that He sent down disguised Armies of the Angels (peace be upon them), which could not be seen by the human being, but they were influencing the heart of the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) and He did not feel any kind of fear.

At the spot, when the Infidels were checking the situation, standing at the Cave’s door, the Messenger (grace, glory, blessings and peace be upon Him) said to His Companion: Grieve not; lo! Allah is with us. Therefore, the heart of His Companion received the affect of His heart and the confusion was over.

The Infidels could not succeed in their bad intentions. Their scheme was failed totally. The plan of God Almighty overcame and that; what He willed; was done. He is very Powerful and knows that when, how and which kind of help will be suitable in which situation. When intelligent Muslims of that time heard these verses, they understood that: Indeed, Allah Almighty has made us means of the prestige of Islam. And it is His great Kindness. If we got ready by gripping our loins to move on His Command, He shall help us in all difficult circumstances. And if we spent in idleness at this time, He has Power to complete His work with His own Omnipotence, but we shall be punished very severely and we shall live of nowhere.
