Pearl of Wisdom
The Prophet (SAWA)'s she-camel got lost in the battle of Tabuk, so the hypocrites started to say [mockingly], 'He talks to us about the Unseen but does not even know where his own she-camel is !' So the archangel Gabriel (AS) came to him and informed him of what they were saying, and told him that his she-camel was in a particular valley, with its reins attached to a large tree. So the Prophet (SAWA) made the call for congregational prayer, and when the people had gathered, he told them, ?O people, verily my she-camel is in such and such a valley', so they ran to bring it for him.'
Imam Ja'far ibn Muhammad al-Sadiq [as]
Qasas al-Anbiya', p. 308, no. 408
