Incident of Istigatha with Prophet during his life

Lord! I am appealing to Muh.ammad by the time-honored pact of both our fathers.(4)You(5) were a father and we a son; then we entered Islâm and remained loyal.Help us, and may Allâh help you always! Summon His servants, they shall come in arms, Among them, the Prophet, mobilized– if he is wronged, his face glowers. In his legion he marches, a sea, foaming. Quraysh broke its treaty with you! They violated the truce they pledged you, made me as good as dead and buried!(6) They claimed I could not call on anyone although they are meaner and less by far! They snared us at Watîr during our vigils and slew us as we bowed and prostrated.(7)
