The (disbelievers) called him a sorcerer, a liar, and a madman. When he invited them to Allāh, the Mighty and Majestic, they cast stones at him till his heels bled.

When he was prostrating at the Kaʿbah, they placed the abdominal contents of a she-camel over his back. They threatened to kill him, and in the Battle of Uḥud...they broke his incisors, wounded his head, and he fell into a hole – and he was the Prophet of Allāh. However, with patience he bore (these injuries), and he was the finest of creation, may Allāh raise his rank and grant him peace.1
