Bismillah Walhamdulillah Was Salaatu Was Salaam ‘ala Rasulillah
Narrated Jabir bin ‘Abdullah (Radi-Allahu ‘anhu):

The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) used to stand by a tree or a date-palm on Friday. Then an Ansari woman or man said. “O Allah’s Apostle! Shall we make a pulpit for you?” He replied, “If you wish.” So they made a pulpit for him and when it was Friday, he proceeded towards the pulpit (for delivering the sermon). The date-palm cried like a child! The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) descended (the pulpit) and embraced it while it continued moaning like a child being quietened. The Prophet (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi Wa Sallam) said, “It was crying for (missing) what it used to hear of religious knowledge given near to it.”
