ALLAH-THE PLANNER

When the Quraish of Mecca came to know that the Holy Prophet and his followers were planning migration to Madinah, they held a counsel of war and hit upon a plan. According to the plan, each section of the Quraish picked out its bravest young men. The young men from all the sections were to surround the house of the Holy Prophet by night. The plan was that when the Holy Prophet came out of the house in the morning, all the young men were to fall on the Holy Prophet and kill him.

Allah revealed the plot to the Holy Prophet. The Holy Prophet left Ali in his bed, and himself escaped along with Abu Bakr, and sought shelter in a cave in Mt. Thaur outside Mecca. This event is referred to in Sura VIII.

And remember when the disbelievers made their plan to confine you, or kill you, or expel you, they made their plans and Allah made His plan, and Allah is the best of Planners. (VIII. 30).
