Ababil

Asteroid explosion (June 30, 1908)
بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
[3] و أرسلنا عليهم طيرا ابابيل
[4] ترميهم بحجارة من سجيل
And He sent against them Flights of Ababil.
Striking them with stones of baked clay.

[Holy Quran 105:3-4]
OK. First, there's a surah named "The Elephants" in the Holy Quran. [Q105] It recites a miraculous event - so grand - that the year it happened is referred to as the "Year of the Elephants". It was the year 570 or 571. The birth year of Prophet Muhammad .

It's named the elephants bcoz 60,000 troops & 13 elephants (or 9 elephants) had set off for Makkah to destroy the Kaabah. [Syed Maududi] But, somehow they perished on the way. I read, perhaps somewhere in the Valley of Muhassir - between Mina and Mudzalifah. The Holy Quran reveals that "Flights of Ababil" (طيرا ابابيل) striked them with stones of baked clay.

So. How did it happen? ^^

I don't know what happened. But if something like that were to happen today, I'd imagine an asteroid like the one over Siberia on June 30, 1908. [Tungaska] It is estimated that an asteroid entered the Earth's atmosphere & exploded mid-air. Sending fireballs and energy equivalent to about 185 Hiroshima bombs. \(◠@◠)/

So ferocious, a man will be hurled from his chair & he will feel as though his shirt is on fire - 40 miles from the explosion. It sent shock waves in some places, equivalent to an earthquake of 5.0 on the Richter scale. & over the next few days, night skies in Asia and Europe were aglow.

So, anyone wants to experiment earth samples in Muhassir? I also wondered about other sites, like Vale of Siddim. فجعلنا عاليها سافلها وأمطرنا عليهم حجارة من سجيل [Q15:74-77] But, will anyone say "Oh pity. She's digging & staring at dirts!"

Please understand the significance, TQ. (◠p◠)

I seek refuge to Allah from errors
Only Allah SWT Knows Best والله أعلم

At that time, Khadija was 15 years old. So perhaps, she witnessed the Year of The Elephant. & how people invoke only to Allah SWT from the army, leaving out the idols around the Kaabah at that time. [Revelation]

So. When Muhammad was born, his grandfather, Abdul Mutallib would've invoked only to Allah SWT - as he came to the Kaaba and named the baby, Muhammad. الحمد لله

Only Allah SWT Knows Best. والله أعلم

A meteor hit central Russia! It caused an explosion & sonic boom that damaged buildings. 500+ people injured. [video]

"The Russian Academy of Sciences estimated that the meteorite weighed about 10 tons and entered the Earth's atmosphere at a speed of at least 54,000 kph (33,000 mph), shattering about 30-50 km (18-32 miles) above ground." [Guardian | NBC]
