Prophet's special privilege

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.
