Chapter : How long did the Apostle of Allah (may peace be upon him) stay in Medina and Mecca.

‘Amr reported: I said to ‘Urwa: How long did Allah’s Apostle (may peace be upon him) stay in Mecca? He said: For ten years. I said: Ibn Abbas says it is some years above ten. He (‘Urwa) sought forgiveness for him and said: His statement is based on the verse of a poet.
