*HUMILIATION FOR ABU JAHL*

Whenever Abu Jahl used to act folly or try to be arrogant in front of Sayyiduna
Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم , Allah the exalted used to humiliate him.
Narrated by Ibn Hisham: Abdul Malik bin Abdullah bin Abi Sufyan As-Saqafi, whose memory power was sound, told me that once a man from the tribe of Arash (or Arasha) came to Makkah on a business trip.
He had brought few camels along with him in order to sell them.
Abu Jahl offered to purchase those camels but did not pay the man in return. Rather, he continued to prolong the date of payment. Frustrated by this, one day, the Arashi man came and stood in the meeting of the Quraishi leaders which was being held in the court of Kaba. That time, Sayyiduna Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم was also present there in another corner of the courtyard. The Arashi businessman exclaimed: “O people of Quraish! Is there anyone among you who can help and support me against Abul Hikm bin Hisham (Abu Jahl)? I am a traveller and a business man and he (Abu Jahl) is not returning the dues which he owes to me.

The narrator says that the Quraishi leaders who were holding a meeting then, indiated towards Sayyiduna Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم and said: “Can you see Him? Go to Him! He will help you.”
They intended to make a mockery of Sayyiduna Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم) astaghfirulah) and to put Him صلى الله عليه وسلم into a controversy because everyone knew that they both had many differences
between themselves.

The Arashi went and stood in front of Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم and mentioned his problem to Him صلى الله عليه وسلم
and asked for Rasoolullah’s صلى الله عليه وسلم help. He appealed to Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم that He صلى الله عليه وسلم should help him
in getting his amount from Abu Jahl.

Rasoolullah stood up and walked with the man towards Abu Jahl’s house.
Sayyiduna Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم ,the most daring among all the men
knocked on Abu Jahl’s door. He inquired who is it? Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم said: “Muhammad (صلى الله عليه وسلم !(Come
out.”
Abu Jahl came out. When he saw Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم ,that very moment, his condition was that his face became white as if it was left without blood circulation.
Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم said:
“Give this man his dues.” Abu Jahl said in a submissive voice: “Surely, will do.
You stay here and I will bring him his dues.

Abu Jahl went inside his house and returned with the amount which he had to pay to the Arashi businessman and handed to him. Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم asked him to return and proceed with his other activities.
The man was so happy that he returned to the Quraishi leaders who were still continuing with their meeting. He said to them: “Allah bless Him صلى الله عليه وسلم .By Allah!
He صلى الله عليه وسلم helped me in getting back my dues.

After few minutes, Abu Jahl came to the courtyard of Kaba. The Quraishi leaders were astonished.
They asked him disgustingly: “Poor creature! Why did you obey Muhammad
(صلى الله عليه وسلم ?(We never saw you doing so before?” He replied: “Wretched be all
By Allah! What
I heard Muhammad’s ( صلى الله عليه وسلم (voice, I suddenly felt tremendous fear and became like a puppet.
When I opened the door and looked at Him صلى الله عليه وسلم , I clearly saw a gigantic camel by His صلى الله عليه وسلم
side (which no one else saw).
I never saw such a fearful camel before. It had terrible head tooth and shoulders. By Allah! If I refused Mohammad’s (صلى الله عليه وسلم (orders, it would have eaten me up.”
