Hi all readers! In this article, I will explain the importance of Bahira’s message to Abu Talib. The message contained so that he guarded the Prophet Muhammad against people who wanted to harm him.
After Bahira was convinced that the Prophet Muhammad was the last Prophet to be sent by Allah to perfect all religions, Bahirah met Abu Talib to say several important things. He asked, “What is the status of this young man with you?” Abu Talib replied, “My son.” He said, “He is not your son. This young man should not have a father who is still alive.” Abu Talib said, “Indeed he is my brother’s son.”
After Bahira heard Abu Talib’s answer, he asked again, “What did his father do?” Abu Talib replied, “His father died when his mother was pregnant.” He said, “You are right. Return to your brother’s son to his area. Keep him from the interference of the Jews. For Allah’s sake, if they see him and know what I know from him, then surely, they will do something bad to him. Indeed, your brother’s son has something very big. Hurry up and bring him to his area!”
After Bahira gave such a message to Abu Talib, Abu Talib was very guarding the Prophet Muhammad. After Abu Talib finished trading in Sham, Abu Talib rushed back to Mecca by taking him. After that Abu Talib increasingly paid attention to the Prophet Muhammad and increasingly looked after him. Abu Talib understood the intent of Bahira’s message.
