Did you know that a bird helped save the life of the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) ? When the Prophet (pbuh) and his companion Abu Bakr were migrating from Makkah on their way to Madinah, they hid in a cave. When the Makkans arrived at the cave in which the Prophet (pbuh) and Abu Bakr were hiding, they saw a bird nesting and cooing peacefully at the foot of the opening.
"Harrumph!" exclaimed the frustrated Makkans; "Certainly no little bird would stay where humans had entered! They must not be inside here!" So the Makkans left, the Prophet (pbuh) and his companion were saved and all Muslims give thanks to Allah that He made birds!
