أَخْبَرَنَا مُحَمَّدُ بْنُ أَحْمَدَ بْنِ أَبِي خَلَفٍ، حَدَّثَنَا عُمَرُ بْنُ يُونُسَ، حَدَّثَنَا عِكْرِمَةُ بْنُ عَمَّارٍ، حَدَّثَنَا إِسْحَقُ بْنُ أَبِي طَلْحَةَ، حَدَّثَنَا أَنَسُ بْنُ مَالِكٍ، أَنَّ النَّبِيَّ ﷺ كَانَ يَقُومُ يَوْمَ الْجُمُعَةِ فَيُسْنِدُ ظَهْرَهُ إِلَى جِذْعٍ مَنْصُوبٍ فِي الْمَسْجِدِ فَيَخْطُبُ النَّاسَ فَجَاءَهُ رُومِيٌّ فَقَالَ أَلَا أَصْنَعُ لَكَ شَيْئًا تَقْعُدُ عَلَيْهِ وَكَأَنَّكَ قَائِمٌ فَصَنَعَ لَهُ مِنْبَرًا لَهُ دَرَجَتَانِ وَيَقْعُدُ عَلَى الثَّالِثَةِ فَلَمَّا قَعَدَ نَبِيُّ اللَّهِ ﷺ عَلَى ذَلِكَ الْمِنْبَرِ خَارَ الْجِذْعُ كَخُوَارِ الثَّوْرِ حَتَّى ارْتَجَّ الْمَسْجِدُ حُزْنًا عَلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ﷺ فَنَزَلَ إِلَيْهِ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ مِنَ الْمِنْبَرِ فَالْتَزَمَهُ وَهُوَ يَخُورُ فَلَمَّا الْتَزَمَهُ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ سَكَنَ ثُمَّ قَالَ أَمَا وَالَّذِي نَفْسُ مُحَمَّدٍ بِيَدِهِ لَوْ لَمْ أَلْتَزِمْهُ لَمَا زَالَ هَكَذَا إِلَى يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ حُزْنًا عَلَى رَسُولِ اللَّهِ ﷺ فَأَمَرَ بِهِ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ﷺ فَدُفِنَ.

Anas bin Malik narrates:

RasoolAllah on the day of Jumu’ah (Friday) would lean his back against a tree planted in the mosque whilst giving the Khutbah (sermon). Then a Roman man came up and said “Shall I not make for you something where you can sit and while sitting it will seem as if you are standing?” Then he made for him a pulpit which had two steps, and he sat on the third (on the top).

When the Prophet sat on the pulpit, the tree cried like a bull so much so that the whole mosque echoed. So the Messenger of Allah came down from the pulpit and hugged the crying tree. The tree calmed down. So RasoolAllah said “By Him in whose hand is Muhammad’s soul, if I had not embraced it, it would not stop crying until the Day of Judgment from the grief of separation from me”. Then the Prophet ordered it to be buried, and it was buried.
