BI’R MA’UNAH بىر معونة
The well of Ma’unah. A celebrated spot four marches from Makkah, where a party of Muhammad’s followers were slain by the Banu ‘Amir and Banu Sulaim. He professed to have received a special message from heaven regarding these martyrs, which runs thus : – “Acquaint our people that we have met our Lord. He is well pleased with us, and we are well pleased with Him.” It is a remarkable verse, as having for some reason or other been cancelled, and removed from the Qur’an. (Muir’s Life of Mahomet, vol. iii. p. 207.)
