Hazrat Aa’ishah (radhiyallahu ‘anha) reports:

I once asked Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam), “O Rasul of Allah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Did you ever encounter a day that was more difficult than the day of Uhud?”

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “All the trials I suffered from your people were severe and difficult. However, the most difficult day that I endured was the day when I presented myself before the son of ‘Abd Yaaleel (at Taa’if). He did not accept my message, and I departed from there in a state of extreme grief and sorrow.

“When I came to the place known as Qarn Tha‘aalib, I felt slight relief. Thereafter, as I raised my head, I saw that a cloud was sheltering me, and Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) was in this cloud. Hazrat Jibreel (‘alaihis salaam) called out to me from the cloud saying, “Allah Ta‘ala has heard the response which your people have given you. Allah Ta‘ala has now sent the angel in charge of the mountains to you so that you may instruct him as you wish.”

“The angel in charge of the mountains then called out to me and greeted me with salaam. He said to me, “O Muhammed (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam)! Allah Ta‘ala has sent me to you! I am the angel in charge of the mountains! All the mountains are under my control. You may command me as you wish. If you command, I will make these two mountains (between which the people of Makkah and Taa’if were living) collide, due to which all these people will be crushed.””

Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) replied, “No (I do not want you to destroy these people)! It is my hope that Allah Ta‘ala will create from their progeny such people who will worship Him alone, without ascribing any partner to Him.”

Note: Despite the merciless suffering that Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alaihi wasallam) was subjected to, he did not make du‘aa for these people to be destroyed, as it was his hope that even if they do not accept Islam, perhaps some of their descendants will accept Islam and be obedient, sincere and devoted to Allah Ta‘ala.
