Abdul-Muttalib the Prophet’s grandfather
Book 2
“Have you (O Muhammad (Peace be upon him)) not seen how your Lord dealt with the owners of the Elephant5?. Did He not make their plot go astray? And He sent against them birds, in flocks, Striking them with stones of Sijjîl (baked clay). And He made them like an empty field of stalks (of which the corn has been eaten up by cattle)”. (TMQ, Al-feel:105)

(Scene 1)
Shaibah grew up with his uncles in Madinah; he was handsome and was known as the son of Hashem Ibn Abdu-Manaf. He also knew that he belonged to this pious home that occupied most of Quraysh. He belonged to the family that was in charge of the Holy House in Makkah (Ka’ba); they offered the pilgrims water and fed the poor and the needy amongst them. Shaibah knew his bearings, although his father was dead, yet he was a proud young man.

One day he went out to play archery, his favourite game, with the boys his. He invited his cousins for an archery tournament; their target was as big as a palm. A man came passing by, and stood far away to watch the tournament. The boys started throwing their arrows, and missed the target. Shaibah came forward, and put his arrow in his bow and let it go, and hit the target. He put another arrow in his bow and was able to hit the target again. He jumped happily and screamed proudly, “I am the son of Hashem, I am the master of Al-Batha’ (the straight landscape in Makkah). The man, watching the tournament from far away, smiled and left.

(Scene 2)
Al-Muttalib was in charge of housing the pilgrims after the death of his brother Hashem. Al-Muttalib was an honest leader who was loved by his people. When the pilgrimage started, he used to spend his day in the Ka’ba, and his duty was to take care of the pilgrims. While Al-Muttalib was sitting in his congress, the man who saw the bow and arrow tournament between Shaibah and his cousins approached him. He came from Yathrib (now Madinah) to Makkah for the pilgrimage. He said, “If you had seen your nephew Shaibah, you would have seen beauty, prestige and dignity. I saw him while he was challenging some boys with his bow and arrow and every time he met his target he used to say ‘I am the son’s master of Al-Batha’.” Al-Mutallib looked up and said, “I will not rest until I go to him and bring him here.”

The man said, “Salma (his mother) will not allow you to take him, neither will his uncles.” Al-Muttalib then said forcefully, “I will not leave him there, and allow him to leave his people, his prestige, his dignity and his family.” When the night came, Al-Muttalib rode his camel, and went on his way to Yathrib to bring Shaibah back to grow up with his family in the house of the respectful Hashem.

(Scene 3)
Al-Muttalib arrived to Yathrib, and asked about Shaibah until he found him. He found him playing with some boys. He went up to him, hugged and kissed him, and told him that he is his uncle and that he came to take him back to his people. Shaibah said, “My mother has to agree first”. They went together to Salma where Al-Muttalib said,” I came here to fetch my nephew and bring him back to his country and people”.

Salma said while hugging her son, “I will not allow him to leave with you, he is my son”. Al-Muttalib replied with insistence, “I will not leave before I take him with me, he is my nephew, and we are honourable amongst our people, and his honour there in his city is a lot better than here, and he will always stay your son”. Salma said while looking at her son,” give me three days to think.” The days passed and Salma was thinking. Letting her son go away would make her sad, but it would be better for him to stay with his people. Eventually, the benefit of her son won over her love. When Al-Muttalib came back after the three days were over, she allowed him to take her son. Al-Muttalib rode his camel and put Shaibah behind him, and they went to Makkah, while Salma cried as she watched them leave.

(Scene 4)
It was noon when Al-Muttalib arrived at Makkah on his camel, while Shaibah was behind him. When the people saw them, they thought that Al-Muttalib had bought himself a slave; they started pointing at Shaibah saying, “The slave of Al-Muttalib (in Arabic Abdul-Muttalib), the slave of Muttalib”. Al-Muttalib screamed at them “What are you saying? He is my nephew, the son of my brother Hashem, I brought him from Madinah”

Al-Muttalib entered his home and gave Shaibah something new to wear, and went out to the people with him and said, “This is Shaibah my nephew, the son of my brother Hashem. I came back with him from Madinah”. The people looked at Shaibah and found that he looked very much like his father and said, “His son, there is no question he is his son.” This still didn’t convince them to call him Shaibah; they still called him Abdul-Muttalib.

(Scene 5)
Al-Muttalib travelled to Yemen for business and died there. Abdul-Muttalib took over the job of housing and offering water to the pilgrims after Al-Muttalib’s death. He used to bring water to the pilgrims of Makkah in a leather container, which was a very hard job. One day as he slept in the mosque, he saw someone in his dream telling him, “dig Zamzam”. When he woke up, he couldn’t understand the dream because he didn’t know what Zamzam was, since Zamzam had already been buried in sand and had disappeared.

On the next day, he slept again in the mosque and suddenly the caller in the dream came back to him and said, “dig Zamzam”. Abdul-Muttalib asked him, “What is Zamzam?” The caller said, “It supplies the pilgrims with water” and he led him to where it was. When he woke up, he called his only son Al-Harith and told him that he was ordered to dig Zamzam. They headed to Zamzam to dig in the earth. He soon realized that they needed more help. He vowed that if Allah (SWT) would give him ten sons to help him, he would sacrifice one of his sons to Him. On the third day, Abdul-Muttalib found the water and people started coming and said, “Let us share it with you.” Abdul-Muttalib told them, “I will not, this is a mission I was assigned to do on my own. Bring me a judge, to judge between us”. They chose a judge, and twenty men from Bani Abdu-Manaf went out with Abdul-Muttalib. Quraysh went out with twenty men from its tribe. On their way, they ran out of water and were thirsty. They came to Abdul-Muttalib and asked, “What do you think?” Abdul-Muttalib answered, “It’s death! Let every man dig out a hole for himself, and every time one dies, his friends can bury him”. They started digging their own graves and sat waiting for their death. Abdul-Muttalib saw that it would be a weakness to give up, so he stood up and rode his camel. He started searching for water in the desert. While he was riding his camel, a spring of pleasant water burst under the foot of his camel. Abdul-Muttalib drank, and called his friends to drink to their full.

The men looked at him respectfully and said, “You’ll have the upper hand, He who made this water available for you in this desert, is the same one that gave you Zamzam, by Allah we will not fight with you over it”. They all returned and Zamzam became Abdul-Muttalib’s. He stopped offering the pilgrims water in leather containers in Makkah, and gave them water from Zamzam instead.

(Scene 6)
Abrahah El-Ashram was a man from Abyssinia, who killed the king of Yemen and took control over his land. He saw the people getting ready in the pilgrimage season to visit the house of Allah. He asked, “Where do these people go?” “They travel on a pilgrimage to Allah’s house in Makkah!” was the reply. “What is it made of?” he asked.

“It’s made of stones”, was the reply. “I will build you something a lot better”, he declared.

So he built for them a house out of marble in white, red, and yellow, and he ornamented it with gold and silver. He built doors, made of golden sheets, and wiped it with Musk, and ordered the people to make their pilgrimage. The people didn’t want to go there, because they loved the Ka’ba and didn’t accept a substitute.

Abrahah was very disappointed and angry, and decided to destroy the Ka’ba. He prepared an army, and put a huge elephant at the front and left from Yemen heading to Makkah. On his way, he fought with many Arabs and won every battle. He went on until he reached Makkah and confiscated the camels of Abdul-Muttalib. The people met together, scared, asking Abdul-Muttalib what they should do? He said to them that they couldn’t kill Abrahah, and that they should flee to the mountains. The people were very angry at the thought that Abrahah might destroy their Ka’ba, their holy place. However, they were too weak to fight him and rescue the Ka’ba from his hands. They fled to the mountains, their hearts so sad.

Abdul-Muttalib the bravest of them all faced Abrahah. When Abrahah saw him, he told his translator
“Ask him what he wants”. Abdul-Muttalib answered, “I want the king to return to me the 100 camels he stole from me.” Abrahah said denying, “You are talking to me about 100 camels I stole from you, and you don’t talk to me about this house, your religion, and the religion of your fathers? I came to destroy it!” Abdul-Muttalib said with ease, “I am the master of the camels, but this house has a Master who will protect it”

Abdul-Muttalib then left him, and went with his family to the mountains, waiting to see what Abrahah will do to the Ka’ba. Abrahah approached in his great army, with the elephant leading it, and headed to the Ka’ba, while the Arabs were watching sadly from the mountains. Suddenly, birds came flying in many flocks from the sea direction, and they dropped stones on the army of Abrahah. Many diseases spread among the soldiers of the army. Their body parts started dropping off one by one. When Abrahah saw this he ran away. The Arabs saw them leaving Makkah, and started climbing down the mountains to go to the Ka’ba and perform their rituals to thank Allah. Abdul-Muttalib was right again, there is a Master for this house and He has protected it. During this year, the year of the elephant, Muhammad Ibn-Abdullah Ibn-Abdul-Muttalib was born.
