While plunging, Gabriel disregarded an island where the heavenly attendant Futrus had been exiled because of his postponement in executing a commission doled out by Allah. He was denied of his wings and removed to the island where he stayed for quite a long while imploring and adoring Allah and requesting His pardoning. “When the blessed messenger Futrus saw Gabriel, he got out, ‘ Where are you going, O Gabriel?’ To this he answered, ‘ Hussain, the grandson of Muhammad is conceived, and for this very explanation Allah has directed me to pass on His congrats to His Apostle.’ Thereupon, the heavenly attendant stated, ‘ Can you convey me likewise alongside you? May Muhammad prescribe my case to Allah.’ Gabriel took the holy messenger alongside him, went to the Holy Prophet, offered congrats to him for the benefit of Allah and himself, and alluded the instance of the blessed messenger to him.
