PROPHET HOOD (A.S)
One of the people of Ad was the first to find gold. He pulled it out digging in the creek under a rock. The status and made jewellery and people began to bow in front of these because of its stunning beauty.
This royal family of forgetful people born a descendant of Noah (as). They called Hood (as) because unlike the other people of Ad were friendly and mild-mannered. Although no one could see from his face light Mohammed (saw) shone like the sun breaking through the clouds.
Hood (as) while he was still quite young, left parties and ceremonies terrible people and retired to a cave on the hill to think and pray. When I was 40 years old shipping Allah angel Gabriel (as) tell it was going to be a great prophet. He must go and teach your people, but you should never, no matter how much I ask for people, display a miracle because that would lead to their destruction.
Hood (as) had always felt great sympathy for slaves Ad. Not only did all the work while his master slept, but most were treated and abused. They were fed and received too little shots. Hood (as) was brought to live with them, and found among the slaves, humble hearts and minds that were hungry for Truth. He began to teach the slaves of Allah and listened and followed their Prophet Hood (as).
When the family of Hood (as) who was discovered living with slaves, sleeping on the floor, eating miserable food uan, they were concerned. They went to him and asked him to behave like one of the owners of slaves, not as a slave. They put a whip in his hands and demanded that fustian a slave, his friend, or they would kill him. Hood (as) tried to refuse but his friends begged him to use his whip. They preferred to be beaten to lose their beloved Prophet.
No matter how hard or how often Hood (as) struck the slave believer, he was not hurt. No scars, no pain, no signs appeared in the body of the humble slave, even when the blows were strong enough to kill a normal man.
It was a miracle, and even when people of Ad not noticed this and did not change the words of Allah tested them discover their truth.
Now laughing Hood (as) and left him alone. When the king heard that Hood (as) taught about the gardens of Paradise decided to build himself a yard just to show people that its really the sky was on earth. For 20 years the slaves worked to build this beautiful garden was called Iram.
Now the king of Ad and his people were even more proud and presumptuous. Even felt that they were better than the rest. While the rest of Arabia was covered in a dry desert, they lived malnourishment in a garden full of fruits. Just when it seemed his pride got its highest point, the rains stopped Almighty Allah. For seven years no rain fell. The crops withered. Herds died. People went hungry. Only slaves were unchanged as they had learned to live with very little, and since his Prophet Hood (as) lived among them and the light emanating from it gave them energy and hope.
Ad King made all his people to pray to their gods for rain. On the horizon appeared three clouds. The first was white and a voice spoke to her saying, “Pick me my. I will rain down on you snakes and scorpions. ” The second was red and said “Pick me my. I will rain fire on you. “Third was black and said,” Pick me my. I will rain upon you a scorching wind. ” Either way, nobody except believers could understand his words.
People of Ad chose the black cloud and they were certain that it looked like a rain cloud. Hood (as) asked them to listen to the true God who created them and who might even save them. But they were safe now, in their pride, the rain which had been asked to come and cast Hood (as).
Hood (as) led believers to the cave on the hill and covered the entrance with rocks and prayed together.
The black cloud came more and more. The people who were so happy to see this cloud began to feel scared. For seven nights and seven days the scorching wind attacked the people of Ad. The wind burned their bodies and melted their gold holdings. Large creatures such as birds out of the clouds broke and the people tore to pieces and suss palaces from the ground and threw them like pieces of dust.
When he finished, nothing remained of Ad, no houses, no palaces, no trees, no grass brisna. But the beautiful garden of Iram, as it was built by believers, was saved and hidden by Allah till the last day he will return to appearer. Sometimes a believer, travelling alone in the wilderness, with the permission of Allah, stumbles upon this beautiful garden. But no matter how hard you look, you will not find again.
Hood (as) and the believers took them out of that desolate place. They settled in the area of Mecca where 150 years Hood (as) died and he was buried near what became the Ka’aba.
May Allah bless Hood (as) and give him peace.
