Saleh Musfer Al Ghamdi claims that he has found the Sejil stone. The stone with which Allah sent a flock of birds (Ababeel) to throw at the army of the warlord of Yemen, Abraha.
The young man found the stone while he was on a hunting trip in the mountains near the Yemen border.
The stone is narrated in the Holy Quran
He says that as soon as he found the stone he recognized it as the one described in the Holy Quran. He also says that the stone weighs exactly 131 grams which is equal to the number of words of the Quranic verse in Surah Al-Fil which mentions the stone.
Where did he find the stone?
Gamdi says that he found the stone in the Green Wadi, now known as the Jarb valley, the place where Abraha along with his forces decided to rest before continuing towards the Holy Kaaba.
He was offered SR 15 million for this stone
It is due to the significance of this event that Gamdi was offered a price of $4 million (SR 15 million) for the stone but he refused to sell it. Experts say that the stone date back to nearly 1,450 years.
The tourism department in Baha asked Gamdi to hand over the stone but he refused that as well.
Is it really that stone?
Well, you can raise many questions on it. How come a bird carries a 131 gram stone in its mouth?
If you believe that small stones can destroy the army of elephants, it is also possible that Ababeel carries 131 grams of heavy stones.
