Abu-Talib:The Greatest Guardian of Islam
In 570 A.D. the Abyssinian Armies under the leadership of Abraha attacked the Holy Mecca to demolish the Kaaba. Abdul-Muttalib, our Master Muhammad's (S.A.W.)grandfather, the Master of Macca, went round the Kaaba praying for Allah, the Almighty, to prevent the invaders from demolishing the House which Ibraheem al-Khaleel(A.S.) and his son Ismael(A.S.) built for people to worship Allah only. Allah, the Almighty, accepted Abdul-Muttallib's prayer.
So, when the elephants and the soldiers advanced to demolish the Kaaba, Ababil birds carrying stones in their beaks appeared in the horizon. They began dropping the stones. So, the invaders around the Kaaba were defeated. Consequently, Allah's power and Abdul-Muttallib's importance appeared! That year was named the Year of the Elephant. Our Master Muhammad (S.A.W.) was born in that year. Abu-Talib was thirty years of age. Allah, the Almighty, has mentioned this event in the Holy Koran:* In the Name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful)Have you not considered how your Lord dealt with the possessors of the elephant?Did he not cause their war to end in confusion* And send down (to prey) upon them birds in flocks, casting them against stones of backed clay* So, he rendered them like straw eaten up?*

Assalamu'alaikum Shabbir,

Please slow down with your multiple topics under one subject and refrain from cloning the threads. 

You are welcome to participate in Islamic INTRAfaith Dialogue where discussion of Shi'a traditions with other Muslims will be most appropriate.
