Q522 :How accurate is the report that wherever the
Prophet went in daytime, a cloud overshadowed him, as well as angels,
so that he did not feel the hot sun in the summer?
A522 : The report about a cloud overshadowing the
Prophet is mentioned in connection with the meeting between the Prophet
and the Christian monk Bahira, when the Prophet was traveling with his
uncle, Abu Talib, to Syria. At that time, the Prophet was only 12 years
old. The reports concerning the whole episode are not particularly
authentic. Although the Prophet's companions have reported everything
that was connected with the Prophet, they do not particularly mention
anything about a cloud overshadowing him wherever he went. Hence, such
matter should not be given excessive importance.
