  • Having taken the metallic jewelry, he brought out/crafted for them a calf dummy — Bellowing was a feature given for it.

  • People may know the history; Our Majesty did not send in timeline before you the Messenger [Sal'lallaa'hoalaih'wa'salam] spokespersons except men whom Our Majesty used to verbally communicate.
