When more than half the work was already done, Boghur pulling the block, and inadvertently stumbled and fell into deliberately left between the stones of the slit, stuck there and died of hunger. Such punishment befell him for the desire to deceive Allah. After that, Allah commanded the wind to fill all the cracks with sand between the stones and close the body of the warrior Bogura, whose bones today found strangulated between the stones; the place was called Stone mountain.
