In the name of Allah the compassionate the merciful
Some one had domesticated a horse in Mecca. When ever the holy prophet used to pass by his place, he used to tell him:
"I will kill you mounted on this beast"
In the battle of uhud, The holy prophet made a light scratch on his neck which was apparently not effective. but he died by this light hit of the holy prophet.
Shaykh Tabarsi narrates the whole story as following:
...he was Ubayy bin Khalaf. He moved to the Prophet with a weapon saying if you escape me, may I not gain salvation. Whoever wanted to confront him was restrained by the Prophet, till he came near Musayyab bin Zubair and killed him with a spear. The Holy Prophet (S) took the staff of Suhail bin Hanif and threw it at him and hit him near his neck leaving a slight scratch and he clung to the neck of his horse and ran to his company bleating like a cow.
Abu Sufyan said, “Why this weeping and wailing? It is only a slight scratch.” He said: “Woe be on you, don’t you know who has hit me. I was attacked by Muhammad and he used to say in Mecca that he would kill me. And I knew that it would be proved true one day. If such scratch had been inflicted on all Meccans they all would have died.” According to another report, he said: “Even if he had spat on me, I would have died.” Thus the accursed one died screaming.
This event has been mentioned as one of the miracles of the holy prophet in the battle of uhud.
