Before the battle of Uhud, one of the infidels dug a pit and kept digging for days, and said: Perhaps Muhammad would pass through it and fall into it.
And when the battle of Uhud came and the Messenger, may God bless him and grant him peace, during the battle, he did not see the pit, so he fell into it.
So his honorable face hit the stone, so his teeth broke, blood ran on his face, and his back hurt.
The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, was wearing a helmet on his head, so he wanted to get out of the hole.
One of the infidels named Ibn Qm'ah, or Utbah bin Abi Al-Aas struck the Prophet with his sword flat, meaning crosswise on his head, right and left of his face.
So the iron helmet entered the face of the Prophet, and blood began to come out more, so the companions came to him, may God’s prayers and peace be upon him, and it was rumored that the Prophet had been killed, and the first to run towards him was Abu Bakr and said, “I ransomed you, O Messenger of Allah.” Abu Bakr says: I tried to remove the helmet from the face of the Prophet, but I could not.
Abu Ubaida Ibn Al-Jarrah came and said: I swore to you, Abu Bakr, that you would leave the Prophet for me. So Abu Ubaidah came and took the Prophet out of the pit. He wanted to remove the helmet from the Prophet’s face, but he could not. He kept biting it with his mouth, and every time he held the iron in his mouth, a tooth fell from him until his teeth broke, and his main concern was to remove the iron from the Prophet’s face.
So Abu Ubaidah took off the veil from the face of the Prophet, may God bless him and grant him peace.
The Companions said: When we saw Abu Ubaidah, his teeth fell out, and by God, we saw a beauty in his face that we had not seen before, out of God’s honor for him because he was the one who was able to take off the helmet from the Prophet’s face.
The Prophet sat wiping the blood from his honorable face and his companions around him.
All this in order for this Deen to reach you today while you are strengthened and blessed, so pray much for him PBUH.
May Allah pray and bless you, your family, and your companions, O Messenger of Allah
