“In my dream I had told you, when my chest and his joint together, this becomes his rank. He had seen lots of dreams before this one, too. In the end he leaves as one in submission (muslim) and freedom. If Muhammad had not prayed for his community, if he had not begged, ‘O Great God, show my people the right way. Guide them out of ignorance,’ how would that Abu Jahl have heaved a sheep’s stomach on the Prophet without his hands shriveling or swelling. In the end, that Prophet was a single horseman on their path. One needs to note that a single misbehavior toward him and immediately trouble catches up with him. He is the kind of person before whom human beings and angels put their ladders down in admiration of his qualities and words. Acrobats who astonish people with their rope skills are amazed at the length and strength of his rope, and by the fearlessness and heroism of his feats. Hearts leap at the sight of his miracles. And those who see him riding and cropping a black lion as if it were a lazy donkey can never forget him.”
