GHAR THAWR (THE CAVE OF THAWR)

Ghar Thawr (The Cave of Thawr)

This is the cave in which the Prophet (PBUH) and Abu Bakr took shelter while on their way to Medina in the prophetic migration trip. They entered into it, until Quraish stopped tracing them, and then they followed their way. During their presence in the cave, Quraish came looking for them, and they stood at the mouth of the cave. However, the Almighty Allah repelled them with his power. Abu Bakr said: “Had one of them looked at his feet, he would have seen us.” The Prophet (PBUH) said to him: “O Abu Bakr, what do you think of two, Allah is their third?” Allah mentioned this incident in his Holy Book, as saying: “If you do not aid the Prophet – Allah has already aided him when those who disbelieved had driven him out [of Makkah] as one of two, when they were in the cave and he said to his companion, “Do not grieve; indeed Allah is with us.” And Allah sent down his tranquillity upon him and supported him with angels you did not see and made the word of those who disbelieved the lowest, while the word of Allah – that is the highest. And Allah is Exalted in Might and Wise.” The Cave of Thawr is located about four (4) km away from the Holy Mecca, to the southern side of the Holy Mosque. It is about 748m above sea level. It is a 1.25m high hollow rock, with two apertures, one overlooking westwards, from which the Prophet and Abu Bakr entered, and the other overlooking eastwards.
