Dr. Mostafa al-Badawi: Even Trees Loved the Prophet (s.a.w.)
بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ
Dr. Mostafa al-Badawi said, the mosque of the Prophet (s.a.w.) in Madina had been built with palm trunks. The Prophet (s.a.w.) used to stand before or lean on one particular trunk when delivering the Friday sermon. When they made the pulpit for him and he climbed on it, the palm trunk whimpered like a pregnant she-camel. All the companions in the mosque heard it. The Prophet (s.a.w.) came down from the pulpit and placed his hand on it, or as related in another version, put his arms around it and it calmed down and stopped crying. This was recorded by Imam at-Tirmidzi (r.a.).
