Jabal Thawr

Jabal Thawr   is the name of a mountain in Saudi Arabia, located in the lower part of Mecca to the south of the district of Misfalah.[1]


The Mountain is notable for housing a cave known as Ghar al-Thawr ( Cave of the Bull), in which Muhammad (PBUH) and Abu Bakr (R) hid from their persecuters, the Banu Quraish, during the migration to Medina. For the hadith, see Abu Bakr#Migration to Medina. The cave is still visited by a very small number of the pilgrims while observing the Hajj—the small number is due to its distance from Mecca.
