The First Journey to Syria – Part Three

(Continued)

Merely on account of the presence of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), the monk prepared a meal for the entire caravan of travelers. When they arrived to eat, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was absent. The monk enquired as to where Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was, to which they responded that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was out grazing the camels. Hearing this, the monk sent someone to call him.

When Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) came, a cloud was giving him shade. As he approached his people, he noticed that they had already taken whatever shade was available under a tree. Since there was no shade available, Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) sat on one side. The moment he sat, the shade of the tree moved in his direction. The monk remarked, “Look at the shade of this tree and how it moved towards him!”

The monk then stood and began to take oaths before the caravan saying, “Do not take him to Rome. If the Romans see him, they will recognize him by his qualities and signs and will kill him.”
