Cave of Thawr

Jabal-e-Thawr

Cave of Thawr is the cave where the Prophet (pbuh) and his companion Abu Bakr (RA) sought refuge for three days and nights from the Quraysh after leaving Makkah and emigrating to Madinah. 
When the Prophet (pbuh) and Abu Bakr (RA) arrived in the cave, Abu Bakr entered first to ensure its safety and clear away anything that might injure the Prophet (pbuh). He found some holes in the cave and filled them with clothes. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) entered after him and went to sleep on his lap. Suddenly, something stung Abu Bakr (RA) but he did not twitch fearing that he might wake up the Prophet (pbuh). The pain was so intense that tears began to run down his eyes and onto the Prophet’s (pbuh) face. Prophet (pbuh) woke up and saw Abu Bakr (RA) in pain. He applied his saliva to Abu Bakr’s injury and the pain disappeared.
