The story of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) & the spider's web
A long ago, prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him) and his companion Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him), were traveling to the city of Al-Madinah. The prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) had been invited to become the leader of the people in the city of Al-Madinah. The prophet had been invited there due to his wisdom, trustworthiness and faith in Allah. While traveling, the prophet and his companion were told that some men from Mecca were after them to harm them. These man who were looking for the prophet believed in Many Gods and Images and were known as polytheists. They were very upset at the prophet because the prophet taught the people that there was only one God worthy of worship, Allah. The prophet and his companion took shelter in the Cave of Thawr. While inside the cave, a spider had spun a web across the entrance of the cave. At that time the men from Mecca were getting closer and closer to the cave. When they arrived at the cave they only saw the spider's web at the entrance of the cave. They thought that no one could have entered the cave because the spider's web had not been broken. At that time the prophet was standing in prayer while Abu Bakr watched. Abu Bakr then said to the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him), "Those are your people searching for you. It's not for myself I am sad, but because I might see something terrible might happen to you". The prophet Replied "Abu Bakr don't be afraid God is with us". The people from Mecca then left without causing harm to the prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him). Allah had protected our prophet and his companion from harm once again. Afterwards our prophet arrived at the city of Al-Madinah where he and Abu Bakr (may Allah be pleased with him), were welcomed by all the people there. This journey that prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings be upon him) took is known as the Hijrah.
