Riyad as-Saliheen 1831

Jabir (May Allah be pleased with him) said:
There was a trunk of a date-palm tree upon which the Prophet ﷺ used to recline while delivering Khutbah (sermon). When a pulpit was placed in the mosque, we heard the trunk crying out like a pregnant she-camel. the Prophet ﷺ came down from the pulpit and put his hand on the trunk and it became quiet.

Another narration is: The Prophet ﷺ used to stand by a tree or a date-palm on Friday (to give the Khutbah). Then an Ansari woman or man said, "O Messenger of Allah! Shall we make a pulpit for you?" He replied, "If you wish." So they made a pulpit for him and when it was Friday, the Prophet ﷺ sat on the pulpit [to deliver the Khutbah (sermon)] and the trunk of the date- palm on which he used to recline cried out as if it would split asunder.

Another narration is: It cried like a child and the Prophet ﷺ descended (from the pulpit) and embraced it while it continued moaning like a child being quietened. The Prophet ﷺ said, "It was crying for (missing) what it used to hear of Dhikr near it."


وعن جابر رضي الله عنه قال: كان جذع يقوم إليه النبي ﷺ ، يعني في الخطبة. فلما وضع المنبر، سمعنا للجذع مثل صوت العشار حتى نزل النبي، ﷺ ، فوضع يده عليه فسكن". وفي رواية: فلما كان يوم الجمعة قعد النبي، ﷺ على المنبر، فصاحت النخلة التى كان يخطب عندها حتى كادت أن تنشق. وفي رواية : فصاحت صياح الصبي، فنزل النبي ﷺ ، حتى أخذها فضمها إليه، فجعلت تئن أنين الصبي الذي يسكت حتى استقرت ، قال: "بكت على ما كانت تسمع من الذكر" ((رواه البخاري)).
