qubais is the most important and spiritual mount of holy city of
MAKKAH. It is said that it was the first mount created by Almighty
ALLAH on the earth. In the bottom of the mount qubais there are many
well known valleys but the valley of Abi-Talib is the most important
and historic. In arabic "VALLEY" means "SHOAB".
velly of Abi-talib is very near to masjid-ul-haram. If we come
from Masjid-ul-haram through Bab-ul-marwa----the gate where the saie
ends----,we find ourselves near to a famous bazaar named "SAOUQ-UL-LAIL"
(in colloquial language it is called "CHAPRA BAZAR"---BAZAR OF SHED-)
This valley is between this bazar and masjid-ul-haram. This is situated
very near to the holy birth place of prophet syedna Muhammad sallall
ho Allihi wasalam and in fact it was the actual muhalla (vicinity) of
holy prophet Muhammad sallalla ho Allihiwasalam.

the time when all the anti muslim communities had agreed upon
a one point agenda to boycott all muslims in Makkah socially and
politically. Through this one point agenda they wanted to (Almighty Allah
forbidden me) to shaheed beloved Prophet Muhammad sallalla-ho-Allihi
wasalam. All the anti muslim tribes in holy Makkah signed an accord to
terminate all political, social, economic relations with Prophet Muhammad
sallalla ho allihiwasalam and other muslims.
6. In such
circumstance the prophet Muhammad sallalla ho allihi wasalam
decided to take shelter in SHOAB-ABI-TALIB. It was very difficult period.
nothing was enough to eat and drink for muslims. How was the period was
difficult? it may be realized to with the fact when the companions feel some
thing soft in the dark , they started to chew them because of intense hunger.
From 30th April 615 to 11th december 618, the beloved Prophet and his
companions spent the most difficult and painful period of their life in SHOAB
of patience and courage the holy prophet Muhammad sallalla ho
allihi wasalam and the companion won this battle of siege.
