A companion asked: Â“OÂ’ Messenger of Allah ?! Tell us about yourself.Â”
He e said, Â“Well! I am the call of my father Ibraaheem u, and the glad tidings of my brother Eesa u; when my mother was pregnant, light emitted out of her by which she saw the palaces of Syria; I was breast-fed in Banoo SÂ’ad. While my foster brother and I were pasturing the goats behind our home, 2 white-clothed men came to me; they made me lie on the earth and split my chest; they extracted my heart and divided it into two parts; and took something like a black leech. They washed my heart and stomach with ice which they had in a golden basin, until it became purely clean. One of them said to the other, Â‘Weigh him with ten person of his nation.Â”
He did; and I outweighed them.
He said, Â‘Weigh him with a hundred person of his nation.Â’
He did; and I outbalanced them.
He said, Â‘Weigh him with one thousand men.Â’
He did: and I overweighed them.
Then the other said to him: Â‘Let him! By Allah ?, if you even weigh him with all of his nation, he will exceed them in weight and value.Â’
