Abdul Muttaleb radi allahu anhu, the grandfather of Muhammad ( Sallalla hu alaihi wa Sallam ) , and some other Meccans were at the Kaba at this early hour before dawn. All of a sudden they were surprised to see the walls of the Kaba bow miraculously before “Mukam-e-Ebrahim” or the “Station of Abraham,” a construction near the Kaba, where Abraham had stood and prayed during the building of the Kaba.
Then miraculously the Kaba spoke as follows: (Translation from the Arabic)
“Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest, He is the Sustainer of Muhammad ( Sallalla hu alaihi wa Sallam ) , who will purify the Kaba from idols and idolatry and restore it to (its honoured position of) the House of Allah. Amena radi allahu anhu has just given birth to this child.
Abdul Muttaleb radi allahu anhu hearing the walls of the Kaba talk and seeing all the idols fall, ran home to verify if his daughter-in-law had given birth to a child. He did not find Nur-e-Muhammad ( Sallalla hu alaihi wa Sallam )i shining from Amena’s radi allahu anhu forehead. He However, knew the child was already born, so he asked Amena: “Please show me, where is my grandchild.”
Amena radi allahu anhu replied that Muhammad ( Sallalla hu alaihi wa Sallam ) was in the nest room but nobody could see him for three days, as the angels and the dwellers of heaven were paying homage to the child.
Abdul Muttaleb radi allahu anhu tried to force his way into that room but he was confronted by an angel with a drawn sword, who told the grandfather not to advance any further and that he could not see the child until the spiritual dwellers of heaven had completed their adoration.
Abdul Muttaleb radi allahu anhu wanted to tell the Meccans but he was struck dumb, strangely for three days just as Zakariah had been struck dumb at the time of the birth of his son Prophet John alayhi salaam .
And he had been born at Mecca and gave a full description of him as “Nur-e-Muhammad ( Sallalla hu alaihi wa Sallam ),” through whom the universe should be blessed.
